Along with Ships, our first recommendation this week week, Lost Lander is another more recent “discovery” for us. We’d missed the fact that the ocassionally still relevant granddaddy of music pubs Rolling Stone profiled the band for their excellent “Afraid of Summer” this past January.
The band plays an intricate variety of pop-infused rock that fans of acts like Ramona Falls and Menomena should find comfortingly familiar as Lost Lander’s debut sees Breff Knopf of Ramona Falls and Menomena fame in the producer’s chair. The band also features Matt Sheehey along with other musicians who rank up there as some of Portland’s finest.
If you like what you’ve heard so far, be sure to head down to Columbia City to take in the in-person experience for yourself. They are supporting Lemolo’s album release this evening.
