The man behind Lenzie Moss is Finlay Macdonald. If you are a scottish pop fan like yours truly, I think you are quite familiar with Finlay already. Speedboat disc back in the day was mighty fine and of course he has been a member of Teenage Fanclub and BMX Bandits in the past. So Finlay probably doesn’t need an introduction in the indie pop world, but maybe Lenzie Moss needs one. Introducing Lenzie Moss just came out digitally (maybe vinyl later, but so far only digital) and it’s a really good album. The opener Kelvin British Summertime is a song about late 80s Glasgow, but the lyrics “It was cool time to like Big Star, Dinosaur Jr and loud guitars” fits quite well to late 90s in Jyväskylä as well. That line makes me a little nostalgic for sure even though my friend(s) kindly pointed out that nothing has changed since then and it’s still cool to like Big Star and Dinosaur jr.
This is Kelvin British Summertime. Stream/buy the whole beautiful pop album at lenziemoss.com.
