Lampland

Lampland is the music of Brooklyn based Tommy Bazarian, who is about to release his debut album, No Mood. All distorted melodies and broken beats, this is fractured Americana that simmers with beauty.  The colourful arrangements — distorted pianos, Halloween-y synths, and chopped-up drum loops – flicker in their fragments, all linked together by narrative lyrics. Bazarian wrote and recorded the songs while working his day job as a radio producer. The stories he heard during the day seeped into the lyrics he wrote at night: a patchwork of memories, movie scenes, and overheard conversations. Like its name, it is music for the low evening light, when you feel slightly in transition and unsure. Or, as Bazarian says ‘Sometimes I feel like a stack of two kids in a trenchcoat,’ he sings, ‘guessing where I’m going.’
