NPR First Listen Premieres New Lost In The Trees Album

NPR's First Listen Series is premiering the new album by the band Lost In The Trees entitled Past Life. The record arrives in stores this February 18th. It is the anticipated follow up to the Chapel Hill group's critically acclaimed record A Church That That Fits Our Needs.

In describing Past Life, Spin recently wrote, "What was once an orchestral-folk six-piece is now an electro-rock foursome that values minimalism and pulsing grooves. But under the leadership of frontman Ari Picker, the North Carolina unit retains its richness." On the record Lost In The Trees have gone from an orchestral six piece to a lean four-piece. The arrangements are more modern and minimalist with a new-found emphasis on rhythm. It is also the first time the group has worked with an outside producer in Nicolas Vernhes (Deerhunter, Dirty Projectors, Animal Collective.) Pitchfork.com calls the re-imagined sound “refreshingly streamlined and direct."

Lost In The Trees will be touring North America in support of Past Life beginning this February.
