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.
Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
