In their lesser moments, Lost Controls come across as a more bar-rocky New Bomb Turks. In their greater moments, they start plowing the adjacent fields that Scared Of Chaka tended nearly a decade ago. Their own musical corn is starting to bud and there’s something interesting and promising in the developing kernels. Let’s just see if they’re adept at both harvesting and crop rotation with the next batch of songs, or if we’re dealing with baby corn that goes on salads. Worth keeping on the radar, for sure.
