Lionel Williams (aka Vinyl Williams) is a Los Angeles based artist and musician. His collage art & psyche-pop music fuses vast landscapes, multi-religious symbolism, and the supernatural into a paradoxical whirlpool of "mysticism and sonic matrices". Created and performed solely by songwriter, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer Williams, debut album Lemniscate unites these themes into a space cruisin' journey through the tropics of the mind. On the surface his music is a flood of ideas and imagery, dashing psyched-out space-rock with layers of kraut and shoegaze. Lead singles 'Higher Worlds' and 'Stellarscope' are muscular, transcendental-pop tracks led by frazzled melodies and driving rhythm sections. Digging deeper into Williams' world, album centerpiece 'Inner Space' and closer 'Follow In Your Dreams' reveal more intangible, ethereal qualities; the sound of a restless creative interweaving concepts to conjure a truly unique and intuitive experience. This amorphous sensation is a constant across Williams' mediums. The 22 year old has also exhibited his similarly surreal art across New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, and Seoul. 'Lemniscate' is released on cult London indie No Pain In Pop (Forest Swords, Echo Lake, Grimes, Doldrums) in Europe, Williams' own Salonislam label for the US.
