Mod Exotica! Gold Dust Lounge's sound is a stylistic smash and grab that goes down like shot of Pulp Fiction chased by a pint of Blue Velvet.
Lost Sunset weaves together eclectic influences from gritty surf punk echoed by the jazz of Ellington, Monk, and Mingus to classic TV theme songs and midcentury exotica.
It features members of Femi Kuti's Positive Force Band.
Turn it up.
