Lindberg & Family – “Lavender Lines”


Backwards Cowboy is the new album from Lindberg & Family, presenting a dose of creative lo-fi rock with fun structural maneuvers and melodic hooks. The project of Arizona-based artist Zachary Lindberg conjures a vibe reminiscent of Deerhunter on album cut “Into It,” with guitars steadily expanding from a murky rhythmic undercurrent to jagged melodic components. The track firmly shows Lindberg’s ability to craft climactic, guitar-based segments. This is further evidenced on the hypnotic “Lavender Lines.” Heavier guitar pulses at the 20-second mark intermingle with quainter, ghostly vocal sections, crafting an effective contrast throughout.
