With the release of their second EP, Space Camp, Loomis & the Lust have found a sound that works perfectly for them and is appealing to all ages. The band blended different styles of music on their first EP, Nagasha, trying to find a sound that fit them and, on Space Camp, they have definitely found that sound. I don’t normally listen to this type of rock music but I’ll make an exception for this band; I may be a bit biased because I actually met them and they are such cool guys but the music is fun too. On this EP, they found the balance between a modern sound and that old kind of classic rock music that’s about good singing and good instrumentation.

Space Camp starts with the catchy “Good Time Lover” which sets the tone for the EP of fun, good songs. “Barbarella” is about a space girl that’s irresistible, the song has a very laid-back feeling to it. “Bright Red Chords” definitely has the classic rock feel from the way the guitars and singing are set up; coincidentally, the lyrics deal with moving to good music. “Move On” deals with moving on from a relationship to something better. “A.D.D.” starts off slow then builds up to a fun finish, it really complements the style of an EP that shows what these guys can do — and they do it well. With catchy melodies and a sound that makes you want to move, Loomis & the Lust have made an EP worth listening to.

The EP will be available from Amazon and iTunes on August 10th. Their first video from this EP is for the song “A.D.D.” and will be released August 9th.
