|Love Your Abuser from Lymbyc Systym is the “established” recording of this group. According to their marketing material there’s something new in the air. It’s called Field Studies and it’s described as a “new split album” with This Will Destroy You. Look for it on Magic Bullet Records. It promises to be exciting, because the mix was taken care of by “John Congleton, whose credits include Modest Mouse, Explosions In The Sky, Paper Chase” and many more, according to Lymbyc Systym.|
I have listened to “Fall Bicycle Album Leaf Remix,” and instrumental by way of keyboard. This is nice listening music, soothing. There are some understated shuffle-beat rhythms that add to the song in a good way.
Those not familiar with Lymbyc Systym might check out “Astrology Days” (2007 Mush/&Records. This tune is different, yet it’s the same. New listeners – don’t expect great changes from one tune to another. That’s why the term shoegaze is in their PR material. There are only so many ways to look at your feet.
“Truth Skull” (2007 Mush Records) is a bit different, at least at the start. There is a short piece without a beat, but that doesn’t last long. This song is a bit more laid back, if that’s possible. “Carved By Glaciers” is good music as well (2008 Magic Bullet) but somehow it’s the same again, only different. Yet, it’s rather good.
The boys say this is “experimental, club, shoegaze music by mike & jared. Good enough. They must be doing something in the correct way, because after completing several concert dates in Texas and Oklahoma, Lymbyc Systym is making its way through the northeast, including Brooklyn. Then it’s off to the great Northwest – British Columbia, Seattle etc. The limbic system (actual spelling) is a set of brain structures with functions such as emotion, behavior and long-term memory. - Indie Update
