Captain of the Lost Waves delivers a truly refreshing and engaging sonic experience with their newest album Hidden Gems: Chapter 1.
If Nu Vaudeville ever becomes the next big trend, Captain of the Lost Waves are at the forefront with their infectious, gothic-esque, epic and quite elaborate display of creative talent.
Think spirit of the bard combined with exciting arrangements of mandolin, ukele, bouzuki, accordion and accordina, double and bowed bass, banjo, bodhran as well as the more traditional elements of guitar.
Combine that instrumentation with enthralling vocal stylings and harmonies, a little Jethro Tull rock attitude, and the pop appeal of the Beach Boys and you end up with something truly unique and original.
This is more than just music. This is an experience.
If you are ever able to catch Captain of the Lost Waves live, I hear it is quite the innovative and engaging experience.

If I were to pick a favorite track, I would say Danger is my current one. However, the entire record is awesome!
