With a name like Lindy you might be conjuring up mental images of a 16 year-old girl wielding an acoustic guitar and a few teen ballads, but actually it's Icelandic in origin and belongs to a 10 foot tall blonde bloke from Canada, still wielding a guitar but thankfully minus the ballads. This 4 song + 1 remix is a showcase for material from his second album.
There's plenty of his folk up-bringing in the melody (having begun life in a family folk band) but also a Beatles ear for pop and soulfulness akin to David Gray. Similar in parts to the likes of Brendan Benson it's thoughtful and catchy whilst never highly strung.
"Beautifully Undone" is a sweet love song set around a picked acoustic riff, like a much fuller sounding Adem. While the other tracks stick to the formula, each has it's own sparkle and charm. Every note and chord is timed to perfection and yet there is nothing here that hasn't been done before, which may ultimately result in Lindy being just one more talented artist left on the pile. Fans of the above should investigate more.
