I’ve been tapped into Stewart Bronaugh’s project Lionlimb since his first single “Turnstile” wowed me in 2015. Granted I was promoting it to noncommercial radio at the time, but still. I was familiar with his work in the Angel Olsen band as well, and definitely had my eyes on him from the get. After being disappointed by his 2018 album Tape Recorder, I am STOKED about this upcoming LP Spiral Groove, coming October 12th via Bayonet Records, just based off this early single “Nothing”. It’s got some great songwriting elements and production choices behind it, with flourishes of chiming piano, dueling guitar melody lines, Primal Scream-like percussion (with shaker – of course!), a catchy chorus, and more. All the great things that hooked me into Lionlimb’s work at the start. It’s a no-brainer for me.
Spiral Groove is out October 12 via Bayonet. Pre-order HERE.
