WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS OUT:
Classical, meet pop: North Carolina’s Lost in the Trees has a stunningly gorgeous second album in “A Church That Fits Our Needs.” Though I saw them after working for 18 hours and it was after 1 a.m. — these are less than ideal conditions, FYI — the Ari Picker-led act definitely made an impression. The violin and cello arrangements are some of the most intricate around, and Picker uses his songs as healing devices. There’s a mystical quality to the band, and not just because its female members have stars painted above the eyes for each performance. Folk-based, classically informed and cinematic in scope, Lost in the Trees songs are aural escapes, filled with nature references and fit for a philharmonic. - TODD MARTENS ON SXSW 2012; LA TIMES
