To hear Lost In The Trees' "Golden Eyelids" via KCRW, go here.
A Church That Fits Our Needs is an ambitious work inspired by loss and transformation. In the summer of 2009, the group's writer, composer and singer, Ari Picker, lost his artist mother when she took her own life. Picker has transformed the event into an evocative and moving musical tribute. Far from being a somber affair, the classically trained composer has utilized rhythm as its own emotional language, never losing the propulsive vitality of great rock and roll.
Lost in the Trees will begin touring with a special performance at All Tomorrow's Parties UK at the invitation of Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeff Mangum. They will then travel across North America including performances at the renowned SXSW Festival.
