Record Club Tonight/Lost in Tree Listening Party @ El Prado Bar

That's right folks! Come check out what your neighbors think are cool! We'll be playing their select choices as well as some of our own!. If ya wanna partake in a future one, just come High Five us at that bar and we'll hand ya the sign-up sheet. As a bonus we'll buy ya a beer or glass of wine for participating!

ALSO - we'll be having an exclusive listening party of the new Lost in Trees record! Lush clusters of piano, a mysterious  sound  that might  be something  being unwrapped,  or paper  crushed  for kindling,  and  A Church  That  Fits Our  Needs,  the second  album  by North  Carolina group  LOST  IN  THE  TREES,  presents itself  as  a work  of vaulting  ambition,  a cathedral built on loss and transformation. In the summer of 2009 Ari Picker – writer, composer, and architect of the band  – lost his mother,  an  artist  in  her  own  right,  when  she  took  her  own  life.  Picker was in the midst of releasing his band’s debut album,  All  Alone  in  an  Empty House,  a  collection  of  folkinflected  songs  that  surprised  with  its  orchestral  arrangements,  to an  acclaim  usually  reserved  for  seasoned veterans. The result is A Church That Fits Our Needs, an  album  that  can  stand  beside  not  only  musical  journeys  like Neil  Young’s  Tonight’s  the  Night  and  Bon  Iver’s  For  Emma,  Forever  Ago,  but  also  such literature  of  loss  as  Joan  Didion’s  The  Year  of  Magical  Thinking. Such is the  honesty  of Picker’s  writing  that  he  lays  before  us  his  loss  in  all  its  complexity  of  sadness,  fear,  joy,  and wonder.
