((Lost Boy?)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Written by Patrick McNamara

Brooklyn’s Lost Boy? (questions - so many questions, man) is the project of singer/guitarist/song constructor, Davey Jones (also in Baked - a band I recently said some nice words about - because that band is also good - and I like being nice about things that are good). Currently a band of four, Lost Boy? make lo-fi warbled pop punk that can be fuzzy and messy, but they’re always sung with sunny clarity. Sure, things get a little unhinged sometimes, but the strong melodies are always there, man.

Clearly a fan of Daniel Johnston (Lost Boy? recently covered DJ’s “Big Business Monkey” and posted pictures of Jones and Johnston hangin’ out, chill style), the music of that legendary DIY guy might be a good comparison for Lost Boy? to get things really rolling and cooking and baking around here. They both rock a similar off kilter, micro pop situation. I don’t know if micro pop is a thing - like micro cinema - or micro machines - but it should be.

Lost Boy? has self-released several solid EPs and albums and songs - many of which you can find on their Bandcamp page. You can also check out the band’s 8-song EP that was released by the up-and-coming label Old Flame (Potty Mouth + Gross Relations + Dinowalrus + and the similarly perplexed Shark?)

Below is a live set by Lost Boy? in its entirety. Instead of reading more of this dynamic blob copy, just listen to it. You’ll like it. Or hell, man, maybe you won’t. It’s your journey and I’m not advising, just describing. But I like Lost Boy? And I’m not questioning, perplexed or confused about that fact in the least.
