Introducing: Lost Lander

Lost Lander, DRRT, Matt Sheehy, Cold Feet, Portland, Sarah Fennell, Afraid of Summer

Portland has delivered yet another stellar band with oh so much promise. Lost Lander is a music project founded by lead singer Matt Sheehy. Their debut, DDRT, is a full length album that delivers on so many levels. Pretty impressive that a work of such quality and depth could come out a “project“. Sheehy, stick with this band. You’ll go far.

I have listened to this album front to back and back to front several times. Refreshingly, each song carries its own uniqueness, yet flows with ease. Lost Lander’s sound is packaged beautifully by Sheehy’s rich vocal delivery and pain-streaked lyrics. Instrumentation steeped in folk influences provide bold directional changes within each track. All while you are continually wooed by the supporting vocalists.

There are many standouts on this album; though, Cold Feet, Afraid of Summer, and The Sailor have me thinking Lost Lander is likely an incredible act to catch live. I wait…
