I have to say that Rolling Stone is usually off my radar for music news (unless I want to read about rock stars whining or pop stars pouting), but today the website has an exclusive new track from Portland melodic indie outfit Lost Lander and thus is deemed briefly relevant. The song is "Afraid of Summer," and it's a spooky ghost story sung in a hauntingly fragile manner.

After the group gave us all a first taste some months back with the track "Cold Feet," this is the only other clue we have as to what Lost Lander's upcoming debut album, DRRT, sounds like. Talking to RS, songwriter Matt Sheehy speaks a bit about the vibes that almost killed the song and why it's now one of his favorites. Take a look and then a listen to the track here.
