Late last year I talked a lot about how much I enjoyed Broken Spectre, the last full length from Lost Film. Just the other day Jim Hewitt upped some new tracks, in demo form, of course, to hold you over until we have news on a more finite release. Even in an unfinished ditty, you can tell Hewitt and co know their way around endearing numbers. Both singles have this charming lack of urgency, with the drums primarily utilized for pacing. Seems like the baseball themed track is currently the most popular of the two; it’s got synth work atop the aforementioned drumming with Hewitt crooning over it all; the special bit comes when that guitar line jumps into the fray. Just in an interesting step in the process, and hopefully we get to hear more real soon.
Maybe it’s just me, but some acts just connect at the right time…thus is the reason I’m encouraging you to sit down with Lost Film right now. This is bedroom pop that expands beyond the quiet of your own four walls; the notes are incredibly warm and inviting…perfect for my staring at the rain drops sliding down my classroom window at the moment. It’s the sort of vibe that’s timeless, in my eyes at least, using sharp angular guitar lines and dreamy vocals to ensnare listeners. There will be a new LP titled Broken Spectre out on October 20th.
