When Jimmy Hewitt retired Orca Orca, his Boston based and might I add terrific dream pop outfit we were pretty bummed. That feeling eventually subsided last July when Hewitt released a collection of demos he had recorded in his Wesrtern, MA confines under the moniker of Lost Film. Well nearly a year later, Hewitt is poised to issue Imago, Lost Film’s full length debut and if the recently shared advance track, Something’s Missing is any indication, Imago may be the soundtrack to your late summer night comedowns. On Something Missing , Hewitt manages to find some sort sonic equilibrium with equal parts melancholy, redemption, and subdued pop hooks.
Lost Film have announced a few Live dates in support of the new LP which includes a can’t miss show at Great Scott on September 3rd along with Bent Shapes, Funeral Advantage, & Magic Magic.
We’ve been following the rumblings of Mint Mile featuring Tim Midyett formally of indie legends, Silkwork and The Bottomless Pit for a hot minute and we’re chuffed to find that Mint Mile has just released there debut EP , In Season & Ripe. Earlier this week the track Modern Day arrived on the interweb and immediately bowled us over on first listen.
