Lungfish "Rainbows From Atoms" LPDischord
Lungfish intertwine poetry and hypnotic music that makes you feel less insane about the human condition.
The band's third album, released in 1993, and featured the band in full command of the song-writing elements whose further exploration would become their signature throughout the years—hypnotic rhythmic patterns punctuated by bursts of anthemic fury and layered with the cadence of singer DANIEL HIGGS' neo-surrealist imagery. Lungfish is now, as it often has been, quasi if not entirely defunct. However, since the release of the band's last album in 2005, Feral Hymns, singer Daniel Higgs (who is also an accomplished visual artist) has embarked on a burgeoning solo career, releasing albums on Northern Liberties, Thrill Jockey and Holy Mountain and showing his artwork both in the States and the United Kingdom.
