LOST MAP presents WEIRD WAVE
2023 marks ten years since singer-songwriter Johnny “Pictish Trail” Lynch launched his Lost Map label, on the Hebridean Isle of Eigg. Unshackled by style or genre, the label’s output over the past decade has been fuelled by a spirit of adventure, passion, and a commitment to artistic exploration.
To commemorate their special birthday, Lynch has co-ordinated a collective project consisting of players from across the roster – members of his own band, Tuff Love, L.T. Leif, Savage Mansion, Kid Canaveral and Eagleowl. At the start of March 2023, the group convened on Eigg to write and record brand new material, together. The resulting LP is a seven track journey that fits perfectly as part of the Lost Map canon, ranging from electronic psych-pop floor-fillers, to wild krautrock odysseys; expansive dream folk, to angular call-and-response post-punk freak-outs.
The name of the project is LOST MAP presents Weird Wave, and they play their first live shows together, this summer.
