 12 RODS: Lost Time

Format: LP
Genre: Alternative Rock
Label: Chicago
Release Date: 20.01.2015
Order Number: CG79675

It's been 12 years since the initial release of what would be the very last album by the late Minneapolis-based 12 RODS. Aptly titled, Lost Time, this last epic perfectly defines and captures how great this band was and how truly ahead of their time its members were. Not only that but for its city, a city fueled on such great music, both 12 Rods and this record have gone down as one of Minneapolis' finest. When musicians that I know gather, sit and talk about the greats, Ryan Olcott always comes up. It's very hard to try and calculate how deep Olcott's genius goes, when at the time, it felt as if the music 12 Rods was making was in fact from the future. There is the Pop music that is defined by paid-to-play radio, and the corporate avenues of selling music as a product instead of a natural commodity. But then there is the Pop music that seems handed down, majestically, true, whole and unifying. There's little music and even fewer complete albums that live up to such Pop majesty. Lost Time is one. Lost Time is one of my most listened to albums of all time. It's one of the only records I know of that is so full of hooks, yet never feels recycled or fake; it's just so fucking enjoyable from stem to stern. And now with its first ever vinyl pressing, I hope that this album can be as much a companion to you as it has for me. Solo listen, party listen, how can it be both? It just is. With this reissue, it means that Lost Time won't be lost at all - that great things always make their way through, even if it takes a decade. - Justin Vernon
