Broken Spectre with Lost Film - An Interview

Cintilantemente veio ao mundo hoje o novo trabalho do Lost Film, "Broken Spectre".

Uma ode a famigerada sonoridade do selo de qualidade Sarah Records, e claro, porções de Chills e Go-Betweens sempre fazem parte do pacote.

O disco é uma pérola, resumidamente é isso, mas, existe, ao menos para mim, um certa similaridade do Lost Film com o querido Electric Lo-Fi Seresta, talvez muito por conta das conexões e referências, e, também, pelo formato, no caso, Jimmy Hewitt, é vozes, guitarras e todo restante, ficando a bateria a cargo de Ben Husk, mais um das muitas coincidências com o ELFS, mas isso serve apenas para situar você, leitor/ouvinte que vai se embrenhar no mundo de sonhos de Jimmy.

Uma doce serenata cristalina onde o amor comanda, assim é o Lost Film.

***** Interview with Lost Film *****

Q. When did Lost Film start? Tell us about the history...
Lost Film started officially in 2014 but was really a continuation of a project I had in Boston in 2011 called Orca Orca. I moved out of Boston to rural Western MA and changed the name to Lost Film. I write the records at home in my spare time and then when it comes time to go to the studio or play live, I have friends come and join in to make everything sound better and bigger.

Q: Who are your influences?
Chronologically my influences were my grandmother who gave me my first guitar, my friends pop punk bands in high school who I wanted to be like, and then the OC season 2 soundtrack from 2004.

Q. Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
My first tape I bought was Hootie & the Blowfish when I was like 8, my first cd was Sheryl Crow when I was 10, my first record I bought was the Strokes Is This It when I was like 15. Ryan Adams' Love is Hell and Wilco's A Ghost of Born were my favorite records in high school and probably still are.

Q. How do you feel playing live?
This project especially is always way different live than the recordings. we only play a few shows a year at this point so we make the best of it and have a lot of fun on stage. its a lot faster and grittier than the records.

Q. How do you describe Lost Film sounds?
Lost Film probably sounds like 1987 mixed with 2002

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Every Lost Film record has been recorded differently. Some have been in studios but mostly at home. Our new record was recorded in my basement and then we sent it to be mixed by our friends at Big Nice studios. I feel best recording at home since its more comfortable and theres no time constraints. it also allows me to try more things while recording I might not have if I were in a studio with a bunch of strangers watching me.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
I'd like to cover Sheryl Crow's C'mon C'mon in full.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
Probably keep writing 3 minute pop songs on guitar. Also would really like to get into scoring films.

Q: Any parting words?
Our new record Broken Spectre is very good and comes out in late October on 10" vinyl and cassette tape.
