New LOST IN THE TREES Album Out Today

The powerful new album by the North Carolina musical collective LOST IN THE TREES is called A Church That Fits Our Needs. The record arrives in stores today already accompanied by a well deserved and mounting buzz of critical acclaim. After a must see performance at All Tomorrow’s Parties UK at the invitation of Neutral Milk Hotel’s Jeff Mangum, the group appeared last week at the South By Southwest Festival in Austin where their moving and transcendent performances earned them a spot on Time Magazine’s SXSW 2012 “Best In Class” list as well as a feature story in today’s Wall Street Journal .

A Church That Fits Our Needs is the anticipated follow up to the band’s breakthrough Anti Records debut All Alone In An Empty House which NPR Music called their “surprise album of the year.” The new record is an immensely ambitious work inspired by loss and transformation. In the summer of 2009, the group’s writer, composer and singer, Ari Picker, lost his artist mother when she took her own life. Picker has transformed the event into an evocative and moving musical tribute. Far from being a somber affair, the classically trained composer has utilized rhythm as its own emotional language, never losing the propulsive vitality of great rock and roll.
