POZ Review: Long Lost - Save Yourself, Start Again

by Zack Zarrillo - Aug 6, 2013

*This review was composed by Becky Kovach and edited by Jesse Richman

No two writers have the exact same style. You’d never confuse Poe for Palahniuk, or Twain for Tolkien. 

The same could be said for singers; no two sound alike. Some, though, have more recognizable voices than others, and when a singer like that materializes, they usually come to be identified with the band that first gains them exposure. Unfortunately for Long Lost, singer Joe Boynton — better known for his work in Transit — has one of those voices. 

Boynton’s identifiable voice makes it incredibly difficult to separate the two bands. And since there was a lot of disappointment and drama surrounding Transit’s latest album, Young New England, this probably isn’t the ideal situation for the release of Long Lost’s debut, Save Yourself, Start Again

But when all is said and done, Save Yourself, Start Again is a stronger album than Young New England was, and it’s sure to win over the Transit fans who were dissatisfied with the effort put forth earlier this year.

Save Yourself, Start Again opens with “Not Worth It,” a song that ironically asks “Can you make the best / Of this bad situation in front of you?” The answer? Yes, Long Lost absolutely makes the best of their bad situation. “Not Worth It” is light and airy, with a gentle guitar melody underlining crisp drums and wispy vocals. My only complaint is that the song, barely two minutes long, feels like it’s building to a climax that it never quite reaches.

The Dangerous Summer - Golden Record (8/6)
There are a lot of different opinions out there about The Dangerous Summer, their music, and the situations they seem to find themselves in. My take has always been to just forget about it, because the music’s just too good to ignore. After War Paint ended up being every bit as good as Reach for the Sun was (and probably better), there’s no limit to how good this band can be. There’s a wrinkle in this record cycle, thanks to two new additions (drummer Ben Cato and guitarist Matt Kennedy, ex-The Graduate), and the duo’s contributions on first single “Catholic Girls” show that the band’s musicianship has taken another giant step forward. All eyes will be on the band’s third full-length, Golden Record, because not only are the expectations  and anticipations high, but they deserve to be. If Golden Record is any bit as good as the two albums that preceded it, this will be yet another album from TDS that we’ll be talking about years after its release. - Donald Wagenblast

Dads - Pretty Good (8/6)
All hail our beloved Kings of Emo! The forthcoming EP from New Jersey’s Dads, Pretty Good, is the first release for the band’s new home (6131 Records) and promises to, you know, at least kind of meet our expectations with that modestly given title. Yet after a few listens to the 2 new songs that have been posted for streaming, we’re more than certain that Dads needn’t lowball themselves, as the duo has seemingly put together a couple of tightly written and innovative jams. Running the gamut between lighthearted and furious, Dads has all their stylistic bases covered; “Boat Rich” reprises their typical wealth of “emo” liveliness with John Bradley’s vocals at their strongest showing to date, while “My Crass Patch” is a stormy departure into darker, heavier territories, both raising eyebrows and inciting audiences everywhere. We’re titillated at the idea of hearing the rest of the EP, and with a year that’s so far been endless touring and opportunity for them, we’re stoked to see where Dads’ career lands them next.  - Adrienne Fisher

Long Lost - Save Yourself, Start Again (8/6)
Transit’s Young New England, for all the bluster and sound and fury against it, actually has some solid hooks behind it. Okay, so there’s some bad ones too, but songs like “Lake Q” and “Don’t Go, Don’t Stray” are breezy, harmless summer tunes that pack some pretty strong melodies. I know, #GFYEVR, right?

Transit fans pretty quickly tarred and feathered Joe Boynton as a suitable scapegoat for the album’s underwhelming reception, which really isn’t fair to the singer. But Long Lost, Boynton’s new project, gives himself a chance to save himself and start again — literally. Much like Young New England’s best numbers, Long Lost is jam-packed with end-of-summer bonfire melodies and wistful vocals. If this is Boynton’s second chance in 2013 (in fan’s eyes only), it’s a pretty darn good one. - Erik van Rheenen

John Mayer - Paradise Valley (8/13)
John Mayer is a far cry from what I normally listen to, but I’ve always had a soft spot for the handsome smooth-talker from Connecticut. So of course I was excited to hear that he had another album in the works, and judging from the singles Mayer has released (“Paper Doll” and “Wildfire”), it seems that Paradise Valley is going to follow in the footsteps of last year’s Born And Raised. And that is perfectly okay. In the onslaught of summer we could all use a little more chill, which is exactly what Mayer provides in his laid-back and soulful brand of rock. - Becky Kovach
