Introducing: The Stormy post-punk of Posh Lost (Show TONIGHT!)
The best post-punk, from its late 70s inception to today, merges a dark, heavy and ominous ambience with a inkling of something more substantial. When the genre is at it’s peak, it can turn moping baselines and reverb-d vocals into epic soundscapes. I’m not saying Posh Lost are the best at the pack, but they certainly hold their own. Formerly known as Gloss, you can stream and buy the band’s 10-song debut LP below. The record was released via the Brooklyn-based tape label Mirror Universe earlier this year, and is a commanding collection. Synths are lush, basslines are incessant, vocals are detached-but-powerful, and the the whole sound is mixed and packaged in a way that leaves the listener with little breathing room. The record showcases a band that have clearly refined and polished their sound, and the product is a record that does the post-punk/dream pop genres proud. If you dig the sound, you can see the band tonight at the 7th Street Entry with fellow synth devotees Claps and the garage rock janglers Real Numbers for what should be an outstanding local show. The bands are asking attendees to bring non-perishable pet food to help support animals whose owners are currently living in shelters. More info/RSVP HERE.
