The Lost Patrol
Dark Matter
Lost Patrol

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.
