Local Love: The Lost Revival

Artist: The Lost Revival Song: "The King of Electricity"

The Lost Revival have been best known so far for "bastardized Americana," but this selection from their latest EP To Hell With Them All feels more of a kind with British isles arena rockers U2 and Coldplay. That's no insult; these guys are getting better and better at crafting melodies and arrangements that rouse my attention rather than lull me to sleep. Along with Andy Shaw Band, they're opening for Jupiter One tonight at Skully's, 1151 N. High St. MySpace says this starts at 8 p.m., but I'd expect music to begin quite a bit later than that.
