DOWNLOAD: Previously On Lost, "Just Wink" [mp3]
For people with their heads on straight, November 2008 takes a back seat to January 2009 — when Lost launches into its fifth season. Oh, how we simmer with anticipation! How the imponderable expanse of the next six months stretches out before us and mocks our weekly travails! Thank Jacob we have bands staffed by dorks as devout as we are to help us survive this interminable famine of serialized emotional pandering and kitschy weirdness. Thank Jacob for PREVIOUSLY ON LOST. Ex-Bostonian Adam Schatz and sidekick Jeff Curtin record boisterous, Foley-heavy, cracked-out recaps of Lost episodes and their various subtextual tangles. If the Danielson Famile got mad secular and made pilgrimages to J.J. Abrams’s mansion, these would be their car songs. If lyrics like “Dan says, ‘The light doesn’t scatter quite right’/Maybe that’s why I’m always in the dark” mean anything to you, you must report to these songs immediately. We’ll let you know when PoL finalize some East Coast counterparts to their late-August West Coast dates (and we hope they don’t tour by plane), but in the meantime — and sweet God, what an excruciating meantime this is — check out "Just Wink," PoL’s trippy waltzing exploration of why Lost-ies just can’t seem to say what they’re thinking at any given moment.
