On Light Up Your Lantern, Bay Area multi-instrumentalist Lynx comes up with a new album that’s steeped in tradition at the same time it advances homespun innovation. Premiering here on PopMatters, Light Up Your Lantern evokes the immediacy of guitar-based folk music, only given more scale and texture with electronic elements that add depth and energy. It’s a play of contrasts that works well, as Lynx takes a familiar, time-tested approach and updates it with a sense of flair that’s current and vital.
Light Up Your Lantern will be released on 22 October, via GYPSYPOP.
