Album: Conor Lynch – Slow Country

‘I’m not ready for today’

‘Mid-fi music from Michigan’

Conor Lynch wants to tug aggressively on your heartstrings; ‘Slow Country’ is the new record from this prolific singer-songwriter and it certainly manages to do so. It is a body of music that evokes certain landscapes and images through indie folk wistfulness and a classically stoic brand of storytelling lyricism. Acoustic guitar arpeggios twinkle and strings delicately kiss the peripheries as Lynch’s silky voice swoons – conjuring thoughts of Simon & Garfunkel, among other 70s folk troubadours.

The perfect soundtrack for watching the sun come up over a distant mountain range with a steaming cup of black coffee in your hand.
