Arto Lindsay


#1

has just released his first album in 13 years, it’s great


just brilliant generally isn’t he
also been touring with Beauty Pill, hope they come to Europe


#2

Dunno who this lad his but he wishes he were Destroyer


#3

oh wow, nice!

I was just listening to ‘Mundo Civilizado’ the other week; one of those records has touches v. much of its time (some of the drum breaks and synths he employs), but transcends it because of his singular post-modern take on samba.

think my favourite Arto is the noisy live stuff on the second half of ‘The Encylopedia of Arto’.


#4

don’t we all


#5

bet Danny B loves a bit of Arto


#6

also, Beauty Pill, I have that EP - Cigarette Girl from the Future? maybe I need to seek out some other stuff.


#7

love the Al Green cover on Mundo. think Noon Chill is my fav of his solo albums, they all hit a similar spot for me though.
if you like his more abrasive stuff then the DNA compilation is pretty great


#8

I need to listen to DNA a bit more, I think. I don’t think I ever really connected with that No New York comp, and I was never really in the mood when listening to the DNA comp.

I really love the sound of that live noise set. I love the contrast between the kind of hulking bursts of guitar and his trademark languid vocals.


#9

just thought I’d say that Ambitious Lovers might be my favourite band name.
