Lost Kite biography
From Linköping, Sweden, Lost Kite is a father and son collaboration between David and Stefan Carlsson. Stefan might be known to prog fans as the bass player of 70's/80's zehulic canterburish fusion band Kultivator. Although the duo shares the same interest in music, stylistically this is far from Kultivator. It's actually quite hard to pin down since it is very unique, the music is relaxed, symphonic, melancholic, disturbing and acoustic although there are some energetic parts as well to spice things up.

Review by WFV

4 stars Swedish father and son duo enter the prog fray in 2012 with their self titled debut. About the title and band name the more I think about it the more I like it, and the music somewhat projects a kite twisting in the wind feel.

Father is a prog vet who played in a group called Kultivator which released a one off mini masterpiece in Barndomens Stigar, a distinct zeuhlish Canterbury left field winner from the early eighties.

Son is obviously quite talented and they both know their way around a studio. Even if it sounds manufactured at times their is tangible charm to this release that stays with the listener through the four tracks. This is no zeuhl or Canterbury - they play it straight with a light and airy feel surrounded by professional polish. For me, an extremely likeable album that displays in spades what I consider to be lacking in prog - soul. I was really looking forward to their next to releases after hearing this one several times, and while I like those, I'm likely in the minority but I like this one the best.

Three stars for a good not great album and another star for a great band name, effective cover art and father/son partnership

Thanks to sagichim for the artist addition.
