Lindby Nominated for “Best Pop Act” and “Best EP” by The Fort Worth Weekly

0

We are incredibly honored to announce that Lindby has been nominated for “Best Pop Act,” and our latest project, “Christmas with Lindby & Friends,” has been nominated for “Best EP” on The Fort Worth Weekly‘s Music Awards Ballot!

Excelsior!

Now comes the part where we ask all of you, the viewers (of this post), to ROCK THE VOTE and help us out by placing a vote for us HERE

In addition to the nomination, we also visited Eagle Audio Recording Studios this past Saturday to record a track for the The Fort Worth Weekly‘s Music Awards Compilation CD. Here is what the Weekly has to say about the comp CD:

“As part of Music Awards every year, we also corral a bunch of nominees, ply them with free food and booze, and force each of them to record a live track for us at Eagle Audio Recording on the Near Southside. We then compile the tunes into a CD that we sell for charity. Through the $5-a-pop sale of our comps over the past several years, we’ve raised nearly $5,000 for our charity sponsors: SafeHaven of Tarrant County and the Tarrant Area Food Bank. Our 2013 comp is coming along just swimmingly. Get ready for new or previously unreleased tracks from Big City Folk, The Breakfast Machine, The Diabolical Machines, Dru B Shinin’, Ice Eater, Jacob Furr & The Only Road, Lindby, The Longshots, Missing Sibling, Patriot, Siberian Traps, Sonic Buffalo, Un Chien, We’rewolves, Year of the Bear, and a few more.”

Also, we will be playing at The Fort Worth Weekly‘s Music Awards Festival on Sunday, June 23 in the West 7th corridor. The venue and time is still TBA, but we will let you know as soon as we do!

PHEW! VERY exciting things happening around here. Not to mention all of the recording, and preparing we’re doing for upcoming shows! Again, HERE is the link for voting on the Music Awards and stay tuned for more updates as they come. Thanks everyone!

Love,
Lindby

“Erikson” reviewed by the Fort Worth Weekly

0

“Erikson” was reviewed by the local Fort Worth newspaper The Fort Worth Weekly! The article, by Anthony Mariani, really speaks for itself, so I’ll stop jabbering and let you get right to it!

HERE is the direct link to the two-part article on “Erikson” and the latest EP by the DFW band Oil Boom entitled “Gold Yeller.” I would definitely recommend using the link because the FW Weekly site has so much to offer, but if you’re impatient (or have a lousy internet connection), just scroll on down and enjoy!

Lindby’s Erikson

Listened to Erikson. Here’s what we know. Some young, seemingly normal Arlingtonians harbor a perverse fascination with people (real or imagined) sharing the surname Erikson. The first track off Lindby’s long-time-in-the-making debut album is “Erikson, Leif,” and “Erikson, Sheldon,” “Erikson, Jon,” “Erikson, Tom,” “Erikson, J.S.,” and “Erikson, Jam” are the titles of assorted interludes. […]

And then there’s the music, a weird mélange of occasionally blustery electric guitar riffs mixed with horns and weird synths, smart sing-songy melodies, and choral vocals reminiscent of The Polyphonic Spree. (Sadly, any band with more than two people singing either in harmony or unison draws comparisons with the Spree, the biggest band to popularize the form.)

You could call Erikson a concept album. Most of the lyrics are silly and fabulist (“The King of Condiments,” anyone?), and the 15-track work is often visited by the melodic reprisal “Erikson / Whoah-oh-oh, my Erikson.”

Home-recorded and self-released, the album captures a band whose aspirations far outstrip its cashflow for Grade-A recording technology and knowhow. You can only imagine what producer Jim Guercio would have done with this stuff back in his heyday in the late 1960s with Chicago and Blood Sweat & Tears. The raggedness here kind of cheapens the genuine expansiveness of the melodies and arrangements, rendering the compositions sloppy rather than raw, organic, and unpretentious, the effects that Lindby was probably going for –– “probably” because the people in the band are crazy.

Not that there’s anything remotely pretentious about this oddball opus. (Paging Dr. Demento.) Next to The Doors’ “Shaman’s Blues,” Lindby’s “The Shaman” is probably the best song about aboriginal medicine men you’re ever going to hear. It’s an early-’80s-inspired dance-rock hit revolving around a groovy, twinkling synth figure and a huge, glorious superhero-theme-song chorus. “Jing Ling-Tam Blues,” undoubtedly named after the professor of vocal studies at the University of Texas at Arlington, is a rocker built around a soaring choral vocal refrain and crunchy guitarwork, and “Piece of Reese” is scandalous and catchy.

Erikson could be a lark, but all of the songs are professionally performed and sprinkled with moments of auditory glee. Not quite Viking-caliber but killer nonetheless. –– Anthony Mariani

There you have it! Stay tuned for more Lindby reviews and news coming soon!
