ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Just as it implies, Welcome to Loveland is the introduction EP for the band Lostdog in Loveland. This four song CD is filled with dark, moody vocals layered over lush, textured arrangements. Reminiscent of early glam such as David Bowie and Roxy music, Lostdog takes it to a new sophisticated level. Speaking of Bowie, three of the four tracks feature David's pianist, Mike Garson. Mike shines on these tracks. Aladdin Sane fans will marvel over his playing on You're Lucky You're Beautiful, a haunting song which at first listen comes off as a sexist rant but on deeper inspection it reveals itself as a song about a man dealing with his own weakness and insecurities.

Other tracks are Rocketship, a melancholy tune about dealing with loss and pain. Halfway (It's OK) which is an anthem for the quitters and Green Isn't Green, an infectious, glamourous pop song that holds a mirror to anyone who isn't open to other points of view.

Lostdog in Loveland consists of Robert Mag, John Winhimmer and Robert Bunnyman Rocco who have all played together on and off for many years, starting in the mid 80's in the punk/art rock band Snapshots, often seen at CBGB's, Pyramid Club, Mud Club and many other New York City clubs. After the break up, Robert and John continued to play live shows under the names Bird Number Nine and Lostdog, finally calling it quits in the mid 90's. In the spring of 2006, the three decided to regroup with a new approach. Instead of focusing on live performances, they spend their time in the studio writing and recording. Perfecting the sound that is Lostdog in Loveland.

Welcome.

The players:

Robert Mag - vocals
John Winhimmer - Bass, guitar, keyboards, programming

Mike Garson - piano on You're Lucky You're Beautiful, Rocketship, Halfway (It's OK)

I'd give another star if there were more songs. This just whets the appetite. Rocketship's been on my ipod for a while and is quite trippy and nicely layered. makes you smile and think at the same time, something I often forget to do. Thanks.

Seriously Good Music
Sometimes one stumbles across music that is different. This is such an album. The music is expertly played. The vocals bare such soul -- there's an honest purity there -- that you simply aren't privy to all that often. The Eno reference that a prior reviewer is apt; I'd throw in some Joy Division with a touch of Tom Waits. That being said, Robert has a truly touching, vulnerable voice that stays with you. Smart, haunting, mature (not profane, just not trivial) music. If you're tired of retreaded tunes, try this instead.

I dig it
Lost dog has a great sound, welcoming vibe and a "I want to listen to it again" aftertaste.

Lostdog needs to be found!!
Shimmering layers of heartfelt vocals, guitars, and piano swirl around these beautifully crafted and paced songs. Give me more stars to give to these stars. Tell everyone you know, there's a home for this Lostdog in every CD collection in the land. Brilliant!!

My bowie obsession lead me to lostdog....
A search on the glam category of rock in CD Baby led me to this album. Mention Bowie (and Pink Floyd as an added bonus) and I'm there.

Instead of hearing an imitative shadow of Bowie's music, I heard a wonderful, haunting, thoughtful series of tunes. "You're Lucky You're Beautiful" soaks with irony, and vocals are heartfelt. Garson's piano contribution is reminiscent of his work with Bowie, but, again, unique to the tunes to which he contributed and not a carbon copy of his work with David. My favorite is "Rocketship," perhaps because of its outsider theme. The yearning sadness of the lyrics and wonderfully expressive voice of Mag convey the disillusion that grows out of youth. "Halfway (It's OK)" - I love the voice-over-voice dubbing, doubly poignant. If only it were ok..... This CD ends with "Green isn't Green." This song, of the 4, had me reflecting on the lyrics. Meaning is multi-layered to me. In other words, this tune makes you think about communication, connecting, and that ultimate alienation that we all feel, no matter what. Here the vocals remind me a bit of David in the 70s when, exhausted, he'd sing "My Death," or "Ziggy." A touch of Eno too, I think. This CD is well worth a listen...more than once.
