Creating “traces of drone, noise, and African percussion, alongside more traditional pop and rock elements,” notes Pitchfork, Lynch’s “instrumentation is unusual and eclectic, incorporating clarinet, watery guitar lines, shuffling maracas, and delicate drum work. But where bedroom pop tends to be somber and even unsettling at times, Mare is very much at ease with itself. And it sounds very organic. Tracks are experimental in composition but ultimately echo the mood of folk or country — music that feels like it should be played outdoors. For how druggy and narcotized it sounds, it doesn’t come across as sad or tuned-out. A lot of artists use these kinds of woozy textures to enhance a detached viewpoint, but ultimately this is colorful and engaged music.” From 2010
