Lost Zoyd (originally The Lost Zoyd) was the successor to Adam Jansch's rev forty. From the outset the new project had a significant emphasis on narrative, a focus that led to 2007's story-as-album debut Death/Rebirth.
It would be almost six years before a follow-up appeared: EP Threshold loosened the narrative noose whilst introducing a more cohrent lo-fi production style. The restart of Lost Zoyd became the basis of an all new Jansch studio vehicle, Dorian Zoyd.
Melding a lo-fi, sample-driven ethic with atmospheric sound worlds and studiously fashioned vocal narratives is Threshold, the first release by Lost Zoyd in almost six years. Trip hop influenced self-contained narrative vignettes replace the album-length arc of debut album Death/Rebirth, with this 6-track EP marking a new direction for Lost Zoyd.
Death/Rebirth was the debut album of Lost Zoyd (known at the time as The Lost Zoyd) and was a bold attempt to write an album-length narrative (much like Midlake's The Trials of Vanoccupanther and Genesis's The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway), following the dark and sinister story of the an escapee of 'City+', a metropolitan project whose roots lie in technological advancement and social misery.
Following its November 2007 release it would be almost six years before Death/Rebirth's successor, Threshold, would appear. The LP's limited-run CD is still available, having been accompanied by a digital download on Bandcamp.
The debut LP from The Lost Zoyd has been released: Death/Rebirth, an electronic vocal epic, follows the dark and sinister story of the an escapee of City+, a metropolitan project whose roots lie in technological advancement and social misery.
