released Sept.15 1998
Produced by Greg Reely & Lindy
This cd is awesome. If Bob Dylan had a love child mixed with Œclassic¹ Spirit of the West, and The Paperboys were the mid-wife, this is what it would sound like. Even the Precious Paintings of Alan MacKinnon artwork on the cover rocks.
Lindy (Vopnfjord) has tapped into a true folk-rock sound that should appeal to any culture. He grew up touring Canada in a yellow school bus with his Icelandic folk-singing family. He did eventually leave the family (like all child prodigies) with his brother to form Northern Junk.
Now, with his self-titled band, singing about moons, dreams and the weight of the world, Lindy has found success. If you like Neil Young, Lou Reed, or Cat Stevens, this album is for you. Lindy has managed to merge them all into this album.
