"Outstanding and essential...count this one of the year's best records! Don't miss it!" - Noise/Admiration

Lost Trail’s “Rural Entropy EP” is a haunting mix. Elements of it hover about and remain ingrained in the mind long after the pieces have ended. Track lengths help to better emphasize their fleeting nature. Within their short lengths they hint at far larger pieces hidden right outside the sound’s periphery. Ghostly in nature the pieces explore quite a bit within their time. “Blood Forcefield” opens the collection up with a swell of sound. This lingers as outside noises try to burst into the song’s brief length. For “Emerald Valley Flameship” the piece veers to and fro, refusing to remain still. Elements of piano filter their way into the dusty track. Piano serves as the focal point for the cryptic “For PSH”. Easily the collection’s highlight “For PSH” employs a gravelly almost David Lynch like industrial debris to fill the empty spaces in the sound. Playing around with listener expectations the song goes forward and backward whenever it chooses. On “John Carpenter” the music is incredibly tense and uneasy. Beneath the endless repetition there are wobbles within the sound. Ending things off on a sweet note is the calm “The Brown Mountain Lights” whose gentle tones contrast greatly with what preceded it. Little pings of sound dissipate in the heavy air. “Rural Entropy EP” explores the underbelly of sound, letting the crackles and hiss integrate themselves into the pieces. The results are elements normally edited out of the compositions, that become the focal point and reveal their many charms. - Beach Sloth
