Lionlimb is yet another moniker, this time of one Stewart Broanaugh, a bandmate of ever-growing talent of Angle Olsen. And on the evidence of his solo album. Spiral Groove, Broanaugh, or Lionlimb might just be an up-and-coming talent himself.
If you are wondering what Lionlimb might be, his PR tells us that “the name derives from a channel in the arm your nerves run through while simultaneously painting the picture of a needle dropping onto a vinyl LP.”
Listening to the album, you actually get the sense that the moniker is quite fitting. The music Broanaugh came up with here is something that has not easily defined elements that run through it, but like nerves, he has assembled them to run seamlessly and with ease, creating a great sense of melody and lyricism that is supported by some excellent arrangements that are all but so easy to categorize.
