From The Lennings
Acoustic guitar and banjo, a particularly hard-hitting rhythm section, a wall of noise, and vocals ranging from lullaby to blaring. Songs focus on finding the beauty and absurdity in the mundane and inanimate. Vocally and melodically, The Lennings blur the line between Austin’s bickering Americana and indie pop scenes. The band’s sound has bounced between their acoustic and electric sides (2007's “Big Beige Car” and 2009's “Geographic Tongue” respectively); however, their current instrumentation and style have been garnering much attention, both foreign and domestic.
