LANZ is the new moniker for the solo endeavors of Benjamin Lanz. Hoferlanz I is the project's debut.
Mostly written and recorded while Ben toured as a member of indie music all-stars The National, Beirut, and Sufjan Stevens, the resulting music on his new album sounds like something completely different from those artists' music: “Think Eno and The Who in a time warp,” says Ben. “They get in the Tardis thinking they’d returning to their respective best years in London. But instead, they land at The Ritz in 1992 just in time to catch a Dinosaur Jr. & My Bloody Valentine double bill.”
These songs were a way to focus on his family life at a distance — to turn his absent wife & kids into a kind-of mantra or mandala — an object to focus the mind & meditate upon — a subject to inform Ben’s musical muse. So, while Hoferlanz I is grounded in Ben’s unshakable belief in off-kilter rock and roll, its subject matter couldn’t be more tender or sentimental.
