Lost Boy? began as NY musician Davey Jones issuing forth DIY releases and free downloads with titles and artwork playing on pop culture, featuring songs that explore familiar territory — invoking the attack of The Fall, the voice and unfiltered honesty of Daniel Johnston, the clever tunefulness of REM, the noise of Dinosaur Jr, and the bashing of early Nirvana. But, these days, Jones is joined by a full band, bringing new life to his lo-fi jams. Currently wrapping up a new album due in the Spring of 2013, the quartet has been honing their live shows and reworking some of the Lost Boy? back catalog to take advantage of a richer recorded sound that better represents the live experience. Of course, if their BTR Live Studio session is anything to go by, the live experience includes a lot of bouncing and smiling, and we wonder how they’ll record that.
Featured song: “Revenge Song”
Lost Boy?’s Air Jordan EP, “Surf’s Down” single, and more are available as free downloads on Bandcamp.
