THE BIG TAKEOVER
Short Take - June 2, 2010
Takeover (Issue No.66*)
[excerpt] - LOST PATROL - On a
Lookout for a Killer Melody":
When tasked with approximating
a likeness for the (truly) widescreen sounds emitted by New York's The
Lost Patrol, names such as Cocteau Twins get juggled alongside Mazzy Star
or the soundtrack work of Ennio Morricone. This lazy, band-alike comparison
chart is further simplified when describing the music to the super layman.
It is true that such “soundtrack-ready” music has an overwhelming
possibility of influences, but there’s no denying that The Lost
Patrol forge masterful swathes of cinematic ear candy – easily on
par with the best soundtracks ...
