Available on backorder

Categories: , , ,


Their 5th release and 3rd full-length, This Is Not A Dream, shows local rockers Lost Ragas in very fine form. Recorded at Union Street Studio in Brunswick with Roger Bergodaz and produced by the band, it features 10 powerful originals that blur the line of Americana, psychedelia, rock, country and roots.

The quartet truly embody the phrase ‘cosmic country’, and those cosmic country sounds are firmly intact on this superb album with a rhythm section that punches hard and tight beneath the spiralling psychedelic guitars of Matt Walker and Shane Reilly. Long hailed as a cracking live outfit, Walker and his bandmates don’t rush to record, opting instead to seek out lyrical inspiration and just the right mix of musical inspiration that brings the whole shebang together in a genuine, considered fashion. There is a sense of exploration and adventure in their music, and just the right dose of psychedelic pedal steel guitar so we know the songs were dreamed up on the highway, not in a bedroom.

We were treated to a blistering ‘soft launch’ on the album’s release day on September 20th, prior to the official launch at the Spotted Mallard in Brunswick on November 8th. The boys are also playing Out On The Weekend at Seaworks, Williamstown on October 12th. If you can get along to any of these, don’t sleep on it! For now, we have some signed copies of CD and (soon) vinyl available in-store – call 9654 1110 to reserve a copy!
