LNZNDRF - LNZNDRF: Driving music that captivates from the off

With each track edited from 30-minute sonic jams and the album recorded in a church in just over two days, there was more than a suspicion that this debut release may be unlistenable to anyone other than the biggest of fans.

However, with Beirut’s Ben Lanz and The National’s Scott and Bryan Devendorf on board, any concerns quickly dissipated.

This is a delightful rhythm-led slice of driving music that captivates from the off.

Although it does tail away slightly in the middle, Future You (reminiscent of Joy Division), Beneath The Black Sea and final track, Samarra, impress enough to make this a solid effort.
