The Lost Patrol-Dark Matter
The Lost Patrol are back with yet another intriguing record.
Their trademark sixties style with a modern spin to them is intact.
"Calling Your Own Name" has a strong guitar part by Stephen
Masucci and a dreamy lead vocal by Mollie Israel. "In Your Blood"
is meaty fare, the dueling guitars giving it a cool sound, and Israel's
crooning smoothes it out nicely. "Lay In Wait" sees them play
a sophisticated, somewhat dark tune with plenty of sass. Israeal's dreamy
tone makes it work.
"Before I Go" is an up tempo pop tune that they pull
off well. It's as good as the other tracks, just a touch lighter. Lost
Patrol are doing a sort of modernized surf rock and they have few if any
peers at that. They are worth a shot if you like the sound of it.
