LOST BALLONS: Self-titled: LP

The Jeff Burke hit parade rages on! This most recent installment is a fourteen-track collaboration with Yusuke Okada (Suspicious Beasts) of dreamy, ethereal, often-acoustic ‘60s pop-influenced songs. The tempo may be slower than most of these two’s sonic output, but the melodies are just as crushing as ever, the songwriting crafted with precision, and the emotion all too relevant. Imagine if Love spent twenty years wreaking punk chaos on the scene before they wrote Forever Changes. Continue the ride you’ve taken with Lenguas Largas and Treasure Fleet; transcendence never felt so free.
