HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Two Lindby updates for everyone:

1. Logan Bowers is taking over on drums for Tanner. Tanner is stepping down from drumming to focus on his electronic music and is still going to be a part of Lindby in that aspect. Soon you will be able to see him live at Lindby shows, but in a way you’ve only dreamed about. Stay tuned in to Lindby news for more on that subject as it develops!

Logan is extremely excited to be a part of Lindby’s future and is already going to be playing with us at the Lola’s show on January 26. He is currently attending UTA, pursuing a major in jazz studies, and has been drumming since the 6th grade. Come on out and see Bowser (that’s Logan) throw down on the drums!

2. Lindby is SUPER excited to announce our monthly residency at Lola’s! Every first Wednesday of the month, Lindby will be rocking the house on down with two other acts at 6th Street’s terrifically JAWSOME venue. Come on out and rock with us and, if you dare, take on Goodrich’s Galaga score (currently 3rd place all-time on the Lola’s machine). BRING IT!

Enthused, He Is!

We love going to shows. Granted, most of the time we’re playing in them, but when when all of us (Lindby) go to see other people perform, whether they’re local or big-name touring acts, there is a certain “Je ne sais quoi” about them. We spend hours and hours preparing material for our own shows and when we see other people get up in front of a crowd and show what they have spent hours and hours preparing, there is a certain appreciation that we feel watching them pour their soul out into music for others to enjoy the way that we do. That in turn inspires us to go back and revamp songs, rethink set lists, and rework a some musical elements that were maybe half-baked and waiting for the right moment to be reinvented in a better way.

But inspiration strikes everyone differently.

Enter Jordan Buford. He is the writer over at The Music Enthusiast concert review blog. Jordan writes superbly in-depth reviews of concerts in the DFW area and is a seasoned veteran, having been reviewing shows since 2006 (you can read his full bio HERE)! Where our friends over at Fort Live primarily cover Forth Worth shows and only dabble in Dallas happenings, Jordan is quite the opposite. He covers mostly Dallas shows (due his proximity to the city) and handles Fort Worth goings-on from time to time. Nevertheless, he is FANTASTIC at what he does! His style of reviews is in a “play-by-play” format, which gives the reader the most in-depth look at the concert he is covering. Not only that, but his posts are informative AND interesting-qualities that some blogs only half muster.

In addition to The Music Enthusiast blog, Jordan also does a podcast over at the Whiskeyboy Radio Network that you can (and should) subscribe to HERE. We have been featured on the podcast multiple times (including his LATEST EPISODE) and HIGHLY recommend it if you are looking to discover new music from the DFW area.

Lastly, but definitely not least-ly, Jordan was gracious enough to take time out of his crazy schedule to sit down, listen to Erikson, and do one of his play-by-play overviews of it (CHECK IT OUT HERE!!). And when I say “play-by-play,” I mean he literally give his take on each song on the album. Music Enthusiast? Most definitely! Jordan doesn’t write many album reviews because he is so insanely busy covering live shows and keeping track of who is playing where and all that business, so when we saw the coverage that he did of our album, we were astounded that he gave it such a close listen! Our collective hats are off to you, Mr. Buford. It is abundantly clear that you love what you do and your passion for music shines through in your work. Just like we are inspired to create music when we hear it, Jordan is inspired to write. And mighty fine writing it is!

If you want to connect with Jordan and follow what he’s doing online (which you DEFINITELY should!), here is where you can find him on the interwebs:

Love Your Motherland!

We had to share this one from the Lindby Facebook Page:

JD, the lovable feline model from the “Erikson” album cover, took some time off from his primary job of writing Lindby songs to go and do his duty. And for once it didn’t stink up the place! Love your motherland, everybody!

In other news, we are hard at work with Blackbox on planning some pretty epic stuff in the VERY near future (I can hear sleigh bells…). Stay tuned for updates as they will be forth-coming soon!

Love,
Lindby
