Austin, TX band The Lost Millions are led by Matt Westfield, whose hushed, whisper- infused voice injects an element of mystery and menace to the band’s alt-rock sound. Unfortunately, he is mixed in such a lo-fi way that it frustrates the listener’s expectation of a message. “See The Light,” “Wisdom of the Mad Priest” and “Complicated” each has its moments—a guitar lick here, a melodic theme there—but it all seems presented in a way that undermines whatever strengths are lurking in the depths. Beyond the murky lead vocals, tinny-sounding drums are starving for a bassier, low-end presence. All in all, this proudly alternative band might want to rethink their approach to recording and mixing.
