You may have noted that I post almost exclusively about new music, either well before, or right around release date. There have been a couple of instances where I've written about older releases, but it's a pretty rare occurrence. Seeing how Savannah, Georgia-based musician Jon Lynn, also known as Unsolved Mysteries, released the Lost Love CD in 2006, I wouldn't normally be in a hurry to write about it. Having only just discovered the album, and appreciating the fact that it was a pretty small-time affair, self-released in a run of only 100 handmade CDrs (and as an iTunes download), I'm willing to cut him a break. Well, that and my initial experience listening to the album (which features elements culled from New Wave, Eurodisco, HiNRG, Britpop, Shoegaze, Dub, emotional Indie-Pop, Electronica, Hip-Hop, Electro and more) was like a shot of "pure imagination" which made me feel like that I was on that boat in the dark tunnel in Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory and Gene Wilder was going ape-shit in my brain while a bunch of freaky psychedelic imagery flashed by. As I was listening to the track "Window" I remarked to my friend Grace that it felt like getting cut apart by laser beams.

Unsolved Mysteries is everything weird that you barely rehash from childhood memory. It is like watching America's Wildest Police Chases, like finding Garbage Pale Kid's Cards with hypodermic needle holes in them, or finding a dead dog in a trashbag. It's about winning five dollars jumping the neighborhood ramp on a janky BMX. It's about feeling mystic.

Excerpt from Mumur magazine cover story, April 2007:

Musically speaking, the band's members come from a variety of different directions and this is the first pop-oriented project for all of them. Jon says, "The last real band I was in was a death metal band in high school... I was the singer, and it was kind of a high-pitched banshee-type thing... Genesis' 'Invisible Touch' was the first album I really listened to, and it's always been my favorite album, because when I heard it first, it was just on the radio, and without any real subjective views I just liked it. Shortly after that I got into rap 'cause my friends were into it, and I started to realize that music is more than music... I was recording mixtapes... Wearing a Deon Sanders jersey, a cross chain, and I had a fresh fade. That got boring quick... Music is more than music. It's a way of life," says Jon.
