Some bands just sound big.Â Before they even have a demoÂ or local gigs around town, there is something intangibly monumental about them. Â Portland’s Lost Lander sound hungry for the headlining stage, and I wouldn’t be surprised if you saw them at a festival near you in the not-so-distant future.
Medallion is an album that “concerns dualities – experiences of love and loss, impermanence and longevity, death and rebirth.” Â While that sounds like a heavy trip, this is music that reaches for the same stars that a young Bono did in 1978, a wishful Brandon Flowers did somewhere in Las Vegas in 2001, and an adolescent Tom Chaplin did in East Sussex in 1995. Â Soaring pianos, pulsating synths and guitar grandiosity loft the message into the clouds, but there is a humility in vocalist Matt Sheehy’s vulnerable quiver, adding an engaging humanity to their arena-ready sound.
As of right now, there are only 193 copies of the vinyl left. Â Make that 192. Â You can also scroll down the page and see all of the cool bundles and packages they’re offering with the album.
