ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Lost Libraries is a five-piece band based out of Los Angeles, California. They formed out of the ashes of their previous musical efforts (Shoot Out The Lights, Golden Arms, Brian Jonestown Massacre) with the common goal to create something different from anything they've done before. They are currently preparing the release of their debut five-song EP entitled Safety In Slumber, which will be available July 2009. The EP was engineered, produced and mixed by Mike Terry (Foo Fighters, BRMC, Ash, Earlimart), & The Lost Libraries at Elliott Smith's former recording studio, New Monkey, in Van Nuys, CA.

Safety In Slumber is the first markings of what the group anticipates to be a growing body of work. While initial listens may show signs of rock influences, the more you dig into the layers of the music going on, the more you'll start to see where genre lines start to blur. The guitars bleed out shoegaze-esque atmosphere and brit-pop melodies reminiscent of Ride and The Stone Roses. The rhythm section tap into unexpected changes while piling on post-rock bombast in the essence of Mogwai and Grizzly Bear. Tying the two cross sections together, the pianos, violins and vocals teeter on the line of post-punk and moody indie-rock; bringing to mind elements of The Cure, The National or as alt-rocker Ryan Adams described the band “...kind of like The Walkmen, but with bigger, hookier choruses.” The end result is an EP that reflects small elements of rock history, but is bent on progressing with its future.

Having cut their teeth in the budding Silverlake music-scene, alongside bands like Silversun Pickups, Division Day, The Henry Clay People, etc., the band is no stranger to the ethos of the community. Playing shows is just as important and satisfying as writing and recording. To coincide with the EP, the band is scheduling special local appearances and aiming to tour the U.S. this Fall.
