This Week in New York Insider's Guide to Arts & Culture in New York City Since 2001



Professional forester Matt Sheehy, who was born and raised in Alaska and is now based in Portland, Oregon, infuses the debut album of his new group, Lost Lander, with elements of nature, animals, and the environment as the band takes off on shimmering layers of ethereal pop. DRRT (Glad I Did, January 2012) features such well-constructed songs as “Gossamer,” “Belly of the Bird / Valentina,” “The Sailor,” and “Your Name Is a Fire,” but it’s “Afraid of Summer” that’s most likely to keep swirling around in your head. The record was produced by former Menomena member Brent Knopf, who played with Sheehy in Ramona Falls. Named by Sheehy’s mother after a lake she used to vacation at in Wisconsin when she was young, Lost Lander — consisting of guitarist Sheehy, keyboardist Sarah Fennell, bassist Dave Lowensohn, and drummer Patrick Hughes — will be at Mercury Lounge on April 6 with Walk off the Earth and at Cameo Gallery on April 7 with Tan Vampire and Paper Twin.
