Tonight’s a chance to experience pieces from the new Lost Landscapes album by Lost Chocolate Lab (Seattle guitarist Damian Kastbauer). After one listen to this record, it’s clear that LCL has tapped into a special stream of glacial, spatial gorgeousness that makes one think that this is what Harold Budd would sound like if he abandoned keyboards for a six-string. A majestic stillness suffuses Lost Landscapes, not unlike the music of Michigan’s gentle space-rock souls Windy & Carl. With minimal deployment of crystalline and fuzz-toned notes, Kastbauer facilitates gliding transport to meditative zones. That is an impressive and necessary feat.
