Anyone else get Peanuts vibes from Julian Lynch‘s music? Maybe it’s just tracks like “Fort Collins” that bring to mind Snoopy skating on ice in the Peanuts Christmas episode, but maybe it’s just the feeling we get from Terra as a whole, which is a warm, comforting one—something close to youthful carelessness. But who is anyone kidding? Peanuts could get pretty dark, and if you spend a couple minutes listening to this stuff, you’ll hear some moments that seem a little…uneasy. They’re not obvious or even prevalent, but they’re there if you choose to hear them. Regardless of what you take from it—dark moments or not, this is a beautiful record. Terra comes out on Tuesday, April 26th from Underwater Peoples.
