While he spends a lot of his time these days as a member of Real Estate, Julian Lynch has been releasing albums of his own for the better part of a decade and is now back with his first solo album in five years, titled Rat’s Spit and out January 18 via Underwater Peoples/ Ya Reach Media. It’s a record of many layers and textures, drawing influence from ’70s ambient records and early-’00s post rock, Kate Bush and Tangerine Dream. There’s an ebb and flow to most of these songs, with swelling choruses and instrumental passages. It’s lovely stuff and we’ve got the premiere of the hypnotic “Catapulting” which has an orchestral feel despite no violins or horns in sight. Listen to that, and a couple other tracks from the record, below.

Meanwhile, Real Estate have a new album on the way too. They played new songs at NJ’s White Eagle Hall last summer, and posted “Album V coming soon” on Instagram last week. They also have a three-night residency at San Francisco’s The Chapel coming up on January 31 – February 2.
