Lost in the Trees

    Lost in the Trees
    A Church That Fits Our Needs 
    Release Date: March 20, 2012
    Lush  clusters  of  piano,  a  mysterious  sound  that  might  be  something  being  unwrapped,  or  paper  crushed  for  kindling,  and  A  Church  That  Fits  Our Needs,  the  second  album  by  North  Carolina  group  LOST  IN  THE  TREES,  is  underway,  announcing  itself  as  a  work  of  vaulting  ambition,  a  cathedral built on loss and transformation.  In the summer of 2009 Ari Picker – writer, 
    composer,  and  architect  of  the  band  –  lost  his  mother,  an  artist  in  her  own 
    right,  when  she  took  her  own  life.    Picker  was  in  the  midst  of  releasing  his  band’s  debut  album,  All  Alone  in  an  Empty  House,  a 
    collection  of  folk‐inflected  songs  that  surprised  with  its  orchestral  arrangements,  to  an  acclaim  usually  reserved  for  seasoned 
    veterans:  “both  heart  wrenching  and  beautiful,”  said  Paste,  while  the  Huffington  Post  called  the  album  “spellbinding  in  its  musical 
    ambition,  touching  in  its  intimacy,  and  often  overwhelming  in  its  emotional  honesty.”    Picker  took  the  loss  of  his  mother  and  set 
    about transforming the events into a tribute, composing, writing lyrics, his mother’s picture above his writing desk: the same picture 
    that  now  graces  the  album’s  cover.    “I  wanted  to  give  her  a  space,  in  the  music,  to  be,  and  to  become  all  the  things  she  didn’t  get  a  chance to be when she was alive.”

    Dense clusters of piano, a mysterious sound that might be something...
