Cookshop present the debut album from Lost Idol. Whilst previous material has kept things rooted in the cinematic-instrumental vein, Lost Idol was keen to explore further musical possibilities. Described as “classic Beck remixed by DJ Shadow” and “Beta Band style alt-folk” this record is a unique musical journey of great depth and beauty, veering unashamedly from psychedelic pop to late night electronics. It bears just as much influence from artists such as Brian Wilson, Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd and John Coltrane as it does contemporary musicians such as The Beta Band, Beck and Four Tet. It’s an amalgamation of new and old, instrumental and vocal, analogue and digital.

“Lost Idol has an intuitive knowledge of the alchemical formulae that produce potent 21st-century psychedelia” 4/5 - Mojo

“the description of this album as ‘Beck remixed by DJ Shadow’ is particularly on point” 4/5 - IDJ

“Strange but beautiful” 4/5 - Notion

“Heading for the best of 2006 list for sure“ - DJ Food (Ninja Tune)


released September 30, 2006
