    Lenn9o9n – Distant Shores DAYDREAM GENERATION, LENN9O9N, REVIEWS | Comments Off
    Download for free: lenn9o9n.bandcamp.com/album/distant-shores Uncle Dave told me to quit with the weird reviews where I attempted to "experience" the record I was listening to and instead focus on the recording itself. "People don't have time to wade through pages and pages of nonsensical prose, they want you to get to the point at hand, tell them what the album is, a bit of blurb about the artist, what you think of it, and where they can get it. They don't want to hear about how I took over the world or the pointy headed man's parents or any of that other ...

    Nick Fraelich – Obnoxious Dancing Music LENN9O9N, RELEASES, REVIEWS, THE WHEELIES | Comments Off
    nickfraelich.bandcamp.com/album/obnoxious-dancing-music Something of an honour for me this one. Nick Fraelich first appeared on the tenth and final Daydream Generation compilation at the end of 2010 and blew my socks off with the experimental folk-pop of the quite amazing 'Meta-Song'. Away from more traditional song structures, I also knew that he dabbled in the black magic of psychedelic electronica and had heard the brilliant head-fuck of 'Trip Tent Sound Interlude'. So when a little birdie told me that he was working on an ambient/electronic record including collaborative remixes and was looking for submissions, I rooted around on my computer and unearthed ...

    Interview: Lenn9o9n INTERVIEWS, LENN9O9N, QUIXODELIC RECORDS | (2)
    And so to boldly go where no obscure lo-fi music blog has gone before: an interview with David Charleston aka Lenn9o9n. You've heard the music (see 'Relining Coffins' below) now have a sneak peek through the keyhole into the brain of the man behind it... DG: Probably an obvious question, but where did the inspiration for the name Lenn9o9n come from? "One after 909" is one of the first songs he wrote as a teenager. I don't idolize him, I just empathize with his ambitions, torment, love, anger. DG: When did you start writing music and why? 2003. I think the Brian Eno quote ...

    Lenn9o9n – Relining Coffins LENN9O9N, QUIXODELIC RECORDS, RELEASES, REVIEWS, VIDEOS | (2)
    Lenn9o9n - Relining Graves download: [download#56#nohits] Listen to Alli: [audio:http://www.daydreamgeneration.com/MP3/Lenn9o9n-Alli.mp3] From the first time I heard Lenn9o9n cover The Beatles' 'Everybody's Got Something To Hide Except For Me And My Monkey' I knew I was listening to something quite extraordinary. Everybody knows that the synthesizer maimed popular music in the 1980s, but here was somebody who might actually make you rethink electronic pop music completely. Not from choice, but necessity (think a 26 year old American travelling the globe with a keyboard strapped to his back, currently alighting in Italy), with the exception of impassioned vocals drenched in precision effects, electronic beats and synthetic melodies are ...
