Lost Demos EP - The Lost Days$8.00
The Lost Demos emerged during the fall of 2019, put to 1/2" tape in an Oakland living room that resembled a messy pawn shop inside of a museum of discarded artifacts, inside of a turn-of-the-century country home in the middle of nowhere. Nearly all parts of the demos were recorded by Tony Molina & Sarah Rose Janko over the course of 3 lost days, bringing in Jessie Leigh Smith on harmonica when tracks needed to feel a little extra blue. The engineer was mainly in charge of holding things together, along with capturing all the right tones at the right moments, keeping the numerous vocal tracks straight, and adding an occasional high harmony. In content, the Lost Demos EP is light-filled, melodic music about dark days & complicated relationships. But in its essence it approaches a simple euphoria - like the Pacific coast in the late summer, on a rare day with no wind, or a daytime drink in a good friend's backyard, laughing about what happened the night before. It may make you nostalgic for something that probably never happened, longing for some insight into those lost days.
