Julian Lynch, [like his friends in Real Estate] is from Ridgewood, New Jersey. The songs featured on this 7" single were originally created for the 2008 album, Born2Run. The recordings contain both acoustic and electric guitar, a drum kit, a keyboard and Julian's voice. Everything was recorded on a TASCAM Portastudio 424. While the initial taping began in Julian's family basement (birthplace of the Alex Bleeker and The Freaks debut), the brunt of the work took place in an empty apartment in Madison, Wisconsin. In a new town with no furniture, Julian recorded the album. [Underwater Peoples]The "Droplet On A Hot Stone" 7-inch, both sides of which (the melodic lo-fi title track and its lazy-surf Beatlesque b-side) you can get above, comes out June 21st on Underwater Peoples
Julian's second full-length album, Mare, will be out on LP June 28th through Olde English Spelling Bee. You can preview and preorder it at his Bandcamp site.
More info on the Born2Run LP, plus Julian's tour dates (still in the planning stages for this summer) (and which btw do NOT, he tells us, include the probably-not-happening "Mountain Man Fest") and videos are below...
