Perhaps if a young Nino Rota had been limited to a tape recorder, synthesizers, saxophones and whatever else he found lying around his apartment, Federico Fellini’s films might sound like certain moments in Lines. Julian Lynch’s music lacks the bombast of that composer’s works, but is similarly raucous, mysterious and full of whirling joy. Each song seems driven by its own organic engine, capturing that hovering feeling of glad emptiness after the passing of a psychic storm—a death, a breakup, a journey or any trying encounter with life’s brunt. More flushed with emotion than previous efforts, Lines is worth your while to sit, open your mind and listen.
