#18: Lionlimb – Turnstile

 

Every year, there is a band that bursts into your life, and nobody how hard you try, the rest of the world just isn’t interested in joining you in admiration for them. Lionlimb are certainly that band for me in 2016 – the former bandmates of Angel Olsen released their debut album ‘Shoo’ this year, and made a better album that Olsen did this year in my opinion. The lazy, woozy, psych-tinged pop that they play is not rare in the internet-fuelled world of alternative music, but few write songs with such longing and desire as these Nashvillers. The Elliott Smith likeness to Stewart Bronaugh is an advantage rather than a curse, and ‘Turnstile’ for me is the best encapsulation of that distinctively warm and fuzzy glow that this band conjures.
