NPR Broadcasts Live Performance From NYC
Brooklynvegan.com is premiering a striking new video from the band Lost In The Trees today. The clip is for the group’s song “Golden Eyelids” from the band’s revered new album A Church That Fits Our Needs which Billboard Magazine called “Stunningly beautiful.” In the video, watery translucent imagery provides an potent visual accompaniment to the intensely personal emotions conveyed in this affecting song.
In addition, this Wednesday April 11th the NPR show All Songs Considered will be featuring a LIVE video and audio broadcast of Lost In The Tree’s April 11th live performance at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC.
The new Lost In The Trees record A Church That Fits Our Needs is an immensely ambitious work inspired by loss and transformation. In the summer of 2009, the group’s writer, composer and singer, Ari Picker, lost his artist mother when she took her own life. Picker has transformed the event into an evocative and moving musical tribute. Far from being a somber affair, the classically trained composer has utilized rhythm as its own emotional language, never losing the propulsive vitality of great rock and roll.
