The Lost Patrol
is three piece band, and its activities dated back from the end of the
90's. They comes out from Piermont, New York, and its carrear is also
discographically relevant. A band has released till now a 7 issues. A
last one, "Midnight Matinee", band did with own forces, as a
self-financed album. In formation, a group has a new singer, and this
is charismatic Mollie Israel. She replaced a previous vocalist, after
realization of "Launch And Landing" album.
The Lost Patrol is pretty original and unique act. Its stylish option
comphrise many interesting variants as a : surf, 60's psychedelia, indie
pop, 60's beat, and many interesting traces in-between. A songs posses
dreamy/catchy atmosphere, where one specific so call retro approach is
present here and there. Some associations leads to Morricone film music,
60's beat and psychedelia , but also some comparabilities cover legacies
of acts as a :Echo & The Bunnymen , Lush, Ride, The Chameleons...There
are 10 tracks on album, duration of little less then 37 minutes, but band
payed attention on every possible detail/place on album.
"Midnight Matinee" is also very inspirative and in some way
optimistic issue. I have to add that in nowadays scene The Lost Patrol
takes a specific place and position.
