>FOUND! In the mystical musical styling of Lynx and Janover and a little help from some friends like Beats Antique. The BRAND NEW album from Lynx and Janover ”between worlds” is rocking my world right now.
Last winter before I picked up my backpack and little life and shipped it down to South America, I uploaded a bunch of new music onto my ipod from my best friend who happens to have fantastic taste in music. Over the course of the next several months I had the pleasure of picking through mystery artists and opening my ears and consciousness to new sounds. Thank you, Chelsea.
On a flight from Santiago, Chile on my way to reconnect with my sister in Paraguay, I stumbled upon ”Lynx” in my artist catalog and dove in to her solo CD ”Grain of Sand” while gazing out over Andean peaks. Her music is just the right mix of her melodious voice, hip-hop influences, sweet electronic beats and conscious lyrics. Kinda my style…
Upon return to Oregon, I was stoked to see her perform at the Oregon Country Fair, alongside Jamie Janover, musical magician who while rocking any and all sorts of percussion instruments is most noted for his progressive style with the hammered dulcimer. Their collaboration has combined the timeless sound of ancient instruments with hip-hop and electronica creating a completely unique sound.
The duo stole my heart when they performed at the Hookah Dome on the playa Saturday night after the Man burned. After a week of pure break beats Lynx’s melodious voice was auditory gold. They created such an amazing soundscape and energy during their performance, everyone in the crowd seemed euphoric, effervescent, grateful. Smiles all around, strangers becoming connected through their appreciation of this amazing music, moment.
”between worlds” is now available to download on lynxandjanover.bandcamp.com
My favorite track ”She’s Looking for Something” was made in collaboration with Beats Antique and has been made available for FREE download HERE.
