Lost Animal — You Yang (Oct. 16th, 2016)
♠ Hot. Like real hot. I’m talking about sittin’ in only your undershirt and putting your head to the sky and hootin’ but nothing comes out just dry wispy profanities type hot. Victoria. Australia. They got small pots of old, cold gold. And they got Jarrod Quarrell but they call him Lost Animal.
♠ Dot Dash and Remote Control Records are incredibly excited to announce the signing of Melbourne based enigmatic cult musician Lost Animal.
♠ Lost Animal is the newest addition to the Dot Dash roster which currently features Methyl Ethel, friendships, Teeth & Tongue, Gabriella Cohen, Banoffee, Client Liasion, Sunbeam Sound Machine and many more.
♠ Lost Animal shared his first new music in quite some time in the form of “Do The Jerk,” lifted from his forthcoming LP ‘You Yang,’ which will be released via Dot Dash / Remote Control Records. (https://www.jbhifi.com.au/)

♠ Melbourne singer dials up the darkness on album two.
♠ No matter how tense things get, Lost Animal’s Jarrod Quarrell never loses his cool. Five years on from the brilliant Ex~Tropical — which pitted his laconic snarl against calypso beats and faux steel drums — Quarrell and Co. have taken that record’s underlying menace and pushed it to the fore. “Do the Jerk” is a desperate song for desperate times. “When I’ve got nothing left/I’m going to put my body to work,” Quarrell drawls, before all hell (in the form of an unwieldy clarinet solo) breaks loose. Amy Franz and Amanda Roff’s vocals play off nicely against Quarrell’s gritty hustle on “Prisoners Island”, while Ex~Tropical’s calypso vibes are obliterated by the dystopian nightmare of “Message For the Future”. ♠ http://rollingstoneaus.com/

♠ You Yang strikes the balance between detached cool and steadfast sincerity, filtering it all through Lost Animal’s dirty lens of sleaze, sex and sadness.
