Lost in the Trees @ Housing Works - 2/17/2012
Lost in the Trees

Chapel Hill ensemble Lost In The Trees are currently out on tour with Poor Moon (members of Fleet Foxes), and arrive back in NYC for a show at Le Poisson Rouge tonight (4/11). Tickets are still available, though if you can't make it, NPR will be streaming it live. All dates are listed below.

Last time LITT were in NYC, they played a benefit at Housing Works with Daytona...

[LITT Frontman] Ari Picker, whose voice has the same high lilt as Ben Gibbard, revealed that this was the band's first public show in six months as they've been holed up in the recording studio working on their second LP, A Church That Fits Our Needs, set to come out next month. This was my second time seeing the band, having first been wowed by their classically-honed chops back in 2010. This time, their music had a spikier edge to it, punctuated by violin, cello, horn, and those new fangled things called electric guitars. -[Feast of Music]
We have some previously unposted pictures from that show. Here they are.

The band's new record A Church That Fits Our Needs was released on 3/20 via ANTI. Album track "Golden Eyelids" made its debut at KCRW back in February. Today we present the premiere of its video which you can watch below. Says Ari, "The idea was to create a video that takes place entirely underwater, composed of evocative moments of eerie and angelic beauty to underly the mood of the song." They succeeded in that, literally. Check it out, a collaboration between the band and CreatoDestructo, along with the slightly older video for "Red", the live pictures, dates and more, below...

"To realize Ari's vision, it had to feel like another world, not like a swimming pool -- so we scouted the area indoor pools and settled the Chapel Hill Community pool, which had a nice 11 foot deep end to serve as our underwater studio," explained Jerry Stifelman, director of CreatoDestructo. "We blacked out the whole back of pool with plastic and our gaffer, Henry, and I, took a crash course in scuba."

"Ari and the band worked all week on costumes, while our art director, Michael Perry came up with ingenious ideas how to float little lights underwater. Michael also worked with violinist, Jenavieve, to create Ari's giant bird idea. It was a cold, dark, very creative night."
Here it is...

I don't know if I like this sort of music, it just seems over the top and it isn't music really.
