Lost features nine new tunes, including the opener "City Meets the Stars", that continues to display the Lovetones' love of psychedelic jangle pop rooted in the '60s and influenced by the Byrds, the Beatles and the Moody Blues.
 

The Lovetones’ Matthew Tow has been playing in Brian Jonestown Massacre since 2003, all the while keeping his own band chugging through five albums. That fifth release is Lost, dropping 28 September on Planting Seeds Records. The group’s 2009 record, Dimensions, garnered an 8 from PopMatters, with Sarah Moore talking about how the Aussie band “brings a down-under haze to psychedelic pop mindful of the 1960s.” Lost features nine new tunes, including the opener “City Meets the Stars”, that continues to display the Lovetones’ love of psychedelic jangle pop rooted in the ‘60s and influenced by the Byrds, the Beatles and the Moody Blues.
