Windsor For The Derby:: How We Lost

How We Lost, Windsor For The Derby’s follow up to 2005’s Giving Up The Ghost is out on Secretly Canadian. Opening with morphing drones, joined in by drums and a pulsating bass, first song “Let Go,” has an ominous haunting feel broken by a floating key riff. With the tone set, the album shifts to a higher gear on mover “Maladies,” propelled by noisy guitar and a very cosmic ambiance. How We Lost then slips in to the instrumental lull, “Fallen Off The Earth,” before rejoining the tide with the upbeat mood and sunny harmonies of “Hold On.” There is more to digest here, like the acoustic revelation, “Forgotten,” the swirling cyclical style of “What We Want,” and interstellar exoticism of the album’s finale, “Spirit Fade,” which has a looser tone than the rest of the album, perhaps implying resolution or just letting it all go. Good times and Good adventures
