Title: Benthic Lines
Artist: Dan Lyth and the Euphrates
Release Date: 12th May 2014
Label: Armellodie Records
Drifting sighs of melody signify the opening of a shimmering album. A myriad of unusual instruments accompany deadpan statements of depression. Saxaphone and Steel Drums are used as casually as electric guitar riffs. Ocassionally female vocalists toot along with the tune. Ever present are confused roots in both classic indie, and psychadelic pop.
Benthic Lines is the first album Dan and the Euphrates have made for Scottish indie label Armellodie Records. Yet again the folks at Armellodie have cherry picked the best of unusual indie music. Benthic Lines is a fascinating album with many faces.
