Exclusive Download: Jon Lindsay – “Castles in France”

Should you follow American Folk music in the very least then you’re probably familiar with a man by the name of Jon Lindsay. Lindsay, an Oregon born-North Carolina transplant, has made a name for himself over the past two years through his extensive touring that has seen him supporting the likes of The Avett Brother’s and Nicole Atkins, and sharing stages with everyone from The Flaming Lips to Future Islands.

Lindsay just returned from a lengthy US tour supporting his debut LP Escape From Plaza-Midwood and will be embarking on another US & European Tour next year but in his time on the road was able to record a holiday-themed EP. TheBlueIndian.com is pleased to have teamed up with Jon to bring you a FREE exclusive download of one of the tracks from that EP. The song is called “Castles In France”. It appears on the new Jon Lindsay EP COULD IT BE CHRISTMAS? which dropped Nov 29, 2011. This song is the 2nd track on the EP. Among other things, it pays homage to the holiday-themed stylings of The Beach Boys and The Beatles, by being subverted and sneaky, and offering darker, less in-your-face holiday scenes and stories filled with longing and both the brightest of light and the darkest of darkness that often ensues in the hearts of all young lovers ’round the yule tide times. That said, the tracks are fun and sparkling, and repeat listening is rewarded with many new discoveries; but hopefully they all get you on first bite if you only get one listen. Jon Lindsay plays and performs all instruments, vocals and everything you hear on this EP. It was recorded in Detroit, LA and Charlotte over a few weeks in Oct and Nov 2011 and produced by Jon Lindsay, mixed by Jon Lindsay and Patrick Boyd at Sioux Siuox Studios, Charlotte, NC.

Aside from all that, Jon is planning on his follow up LP which will be titled Summer Wilderness Program and should be released sometime next year. Check out “Castles In France” below:
