Big Rock Records is thrilled to announce that we will host a showcase from the Lost Map label as part of their 10th anniversary celebrations.
Lost Map presents Weird Wave
Pictish Trail (solo)
L.T. Leif (solo)
This year marks 10 years since singer-songwriter Johnny "Pictish Trail" Lynch launched his Lost Map label on the Hebridean Isle of Eigg. Unshackled by style or genre, the label’s output over the past decade has been fuelled by a spirit of adventure, passion, and a commitment to artistic exploration. Lost Map has consistently produced some of the last decade's most exciting and vital Scottish music.
To commemorate their special birthday, Johnny has co-ordinated a collective project consisting of players from across the roster - members of his own band, Tuff Love, L.T. Leif, Savage Mansion, Kid Canaveral and Eagleowl. At the start of March 2023, the group convened on Eigg to write and record brand new material together. The resulting LP is a seven-track journey that fits perfectly as part of the Lost Map canon, ranging from electronic psych-pop floor-fillers to wild krautrock odysseys; expansive dream folk to angular call-and-response post-punk freak-outs. The name of the project is LOST MAP presents Weird Wave.
"Relentless drums, driving grooves, effervescent synths and psychedelic vocals" - The Skinny
Pictish Trail has toured the world with Belle & Sebastian, Sea Power, Slow Club and KT Tunstall. He has performed at festivals including Glastonbury, Field Day, Bestival, Deer Shed, Celtic Connections, the Edinburgh Fringe and – for an extraordinary and surely record-breaking 19 consecutive years (counting a remote livestreamed show in 2020) – Green Man in Wales, Pictish Trail's psychedelic-bucolic spiritual home-from-home. Johnny studied and was based in Fife for several years and was previously part of the Fence Collective.
“A real hero of the Scottish underground scene” - Huw Stephens, BBC 6 Music
L.T. Leif is a Glasgow-based Canadian slow-felt swamp rock singer-songwriter. An adopted member of the Scottish DIY music scene whose life and art has been heavily shaped by northern landscapes and clime, L.T. Leif is rooted in the self-sufficient spirit of the Canadian prairies and carries with them the indelible experience of spells spent living in Iceland and Finland.
