Chapel Hill band Lost In The Trees plays 40 Watt tonight, Wednesday July 15th

I am just passing this information along, as it was recently passed to me. My first impression is that it could be interesting just because of the arrangements, since one of their photo pictures show more members holding a brass instrument or orchestral strings than guitars.

As I listen to the song 'Tall Trees' play from their MySpace page I hear a pop song that would probably sound at home both on college rock programming as well as more commercial broadcasting. Acoustic guitars, electronic-ish percussion sounds, accordion, some of the aforementioned instrumentation and vocals that a generation raised on Radiohead would approve.

Now listening to 'Fireplace' on their record labels promo page: it's a bit more agressive of a song, with electric guitar added to the mix, highlighted by thick backup vocals and strings.

If nothing else, it is an ambitious effort and also an intriguing one. Go take a listen, and if you like it, you know by now they are playing the 40 Watt tonight (Wednesday July 15).
