PG.LOST is a post rock band from Sweden formed in 2004 by Gustav Almberg (guitars, keyboards), Mattias Bhatt (guitars), Martin Hjertstedt (drums)and Kristian Karlsson (bass, vocals). The band originally was named [ Before You Give In ] but after having a constant change in lineup they finally decided upon Pg.Lost after settling with their current one.
In 2005 they released their first EP entitled with the band's name. 2 years later saw the release of their second EP entitled "Yes I Am" which gathered some acclaim and in 2008 they finally released their first full length entitled "It's Not Me, It's You!".
An orchestra of the heart, a playground for the long lost sporadic thoughts of giving in or getting back. Pg.Lost is a swedish band of many directions, but most of all a band throbbing with great melancholy grinding against the precious high hopes of not just individual human thinking and feeling, but also contrasts within pushing the sonic boundries of endless instrumental experiments of prolonging.
Pg.Lost recently recieved a lot of press attention because of an American individual attracting a record deal by falsely using their music as his own. But then again Pg.Lost does have a way of sounding like a deep emotion or unresolved issues, so no wonder a fraction of us get confused, and start mistaking their music for something private. Pg.Lost feature members from [ Eskju Divine ] and [ Last Days Of April ] and has supported bands like [ MONO ] ~ [ Khoma ] and [ Efterklang ]
I'm really starting to wonder... when you don't hear them, you don't hear them at all and when their name start to surface the horizon then all of of them surface at the same time or one after the other. Is it like a silent conspiracy for the major acts to pop with a new release at the same time. Yesterday was [ Te ] ~ [ Mabeshewill ] and [ If These Trees Could Talk ] now its [ pg.lost ] what's next... [ Pelican ]. Got that right. I'm not complaining though, I just listen very attentively.
On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.
The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
