Stream Lost Animal’s Full, Pop Macabre ‘Ex Tropical’

When Jarrod Quarrell was 16, he found himself trading blows with a skinhead outside of a bar in his native Australia. The damage done to the cartilage in his nose in the process has made his voice distinctly adenoidal, as heard on Ex Tropical, Quarrell’s Lost Animal project’s haunting, keyboard-driven debut. Littered with marimba presets, blood-spackled crime scenes, and unshakable melody, it’s an extraordinarily dark pop record made darker still by Quarrell’s sneering, Dan Boeckner-like delivery. You might say he won that fight.
