Flying Lotus – ‘You’re Dead!’ Album Review

by Desdemona Dallason October 22, 2014
I feel as though I’ve stepped into a musical riddle, and perhaps I’m the only one without the answer. In 2012, Flying Lotus released his album Until the Quiet Comes, a melodic dreamscape inspired by Flying Lotus’s own experiences with astral projection. This album was a beautiful symphonic expression of electronic sounds that drifted you […]

And Now For Something COMPLETELY Different! Trampled By Turtles & Elephant Revival – Interviews & Oakland Show Preview

by Guy Shechteron October 21, 2014
Generally speaking, a majority of the music we cover here at Lost in Sound is electronic in nature. I think this largely stems from the fact that electronic music is currently by and large the most progressive music genre, and if we look back at the past decade or so, it’s been one crazy roller […]

by Mike Weiglon October 18, 2014
More Info on the Waveforms 2.0 Series (Every Saturday!) It was a perfect night in Asheville. A cool fall night, but not so cold you’d need a jacket – in fact I rode my bike rather than drive the two and a half miles to the Asheville Music Hall. It was a Saturday night and […]

The Bay Area jam scene’s got a little known secret, and it’s called the Hangtown Halloween Ball.

by LadyBinXon October 14, 2014
Regardless of whether or not you dumped a bucket of freezing water on your head this summer, it’s inevitable you’ve seen and heard of the Ice Bucket Challenge. (Insert hash tag). Willard Foxton of The Daily Telegraph described it as “a middle-class wet T-shirt contest for armchair clicktivists.” A little harsh, but you get the […]

Getting Funky at Bear Creek Music & Art Festival – 2014 Preview

by Desdemona Dallason October 8, 2014
I remember clearly the first show I ever attended. Sound suspended on a balcony, hanging over the cliff sides of Isla Vista, Santa Barbara, CA. It was just a small town reggae show, with only 30 in attendance to catch the once unknown musicians of Rebelution. I was 16 years young, and my crew was comprised of […]


Shambhala 2014 – Review, Photos & Highlight Video

by Chuck Manleyon October 2, 2014
Shambhala 2014 started in 2013 on a hippie bus that I road on in 2012, with a guy I met in Mexico in 2010, in a universe that started from an explosion that happened 13.8 billion years ago. This was my second trip to Shambhala since that explosion (read about my first time). I got […]

‘PROCESS’ – Christopher Norman Interview & Album Preview

by Guy Shechteron October 2, 2014
Christopher Norman is the musical equivalent of a mad scientist. His music is the fruit of a never-ending process of experimentation, to the point where it almost seems like the experimentation comes first, and the song writing secondary. Sonically, most of his tones come from playing around on his Minimoog, and the gaps are filled […]

Dirtwire – ‘The Carrier’ Review

by Desdemona Dallason September 15, 2014
Thoroughly twisted up in the musical brew storming through my ears, the syrupy symphony materializes from a cultural cornucopia, like a serpentine seductress of the east rising out of the crocodile swamp lands of the dirty south. These diverse sounds are emerging from The Carrier, Dirtwire‘s newest EP. Wobbling the lines of global differences and cross […]


DJ Shadow & Cut Chemist at The House of Blues, Boston [9.3.14] – Review & Photos

by VersaceLettuceon September 13, 2014
Modern DJs have become popular because they cater to the hedonistic urges of the dance music community. Today’s favored electronic musicians spin the most overdone, showy tracks they can produce without crossing over a threshold to a region of indistinguishable loud timbres (and some of the less creative or tactful producers of certain genres even […]

Wild Woods Music and Arts Festival 2014 Review

by VersaceLettuceon September 12, 2014
A musician rarely recoils in response to his audience’s excitement. When Blockhead asked his Wild Woods audience “How you guys feeling?” and received an alarmingly wild, loud reply from a disproportionately meager crowd, he held up his hands in a jesting response to the crowd’s fervor. This caliber of enthusiasm pervaded throughout the inaugural year […]
