Coming off a stellar album release back in October of 2014, Yosemite-based indie rockers From Indian Lakes are entering back into the blogosphere to help promote their upcoming tour. This time around, they’re bringing their sounds through the interpretations of a handful of remixers, one of which we’re premiering here today.
Formed by singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Joey Vannucchi, this unique outfit has since expanded to include Justin Stanphill (guitar and vocals), Chris Kellogg (bass and vocals), Tohm Ifergan (drums), and Enrique Gutierrez (keys and vocals). Their sound glows with articulated intention, thoughtfully crafted from start to finish. “Runner” embodies that calculated style, boasting a calming instrumentals, percussion-style vocal hums, and vocals and lyrics that pleasantly call on associations of one of our all time favorites, Ben Gibbard.
With those vocals and minimal instrumentation, Ansible had a somewhat blank canvas to work with. Crafting a subdued, ambient, and luscious soundscape, we’re instantly taken away for a few brief minutes. Highlighting the calming ride is the accentuation of the original vocals, which effortlessly glide along the aforementioned production. It’s simply gorgeous and should quickly find it’s way into that playlist you have containing Bonobo, Tycho, and Emancipator.
