Baltimore-based Lake Trout have crafted a unique sound based on diverse influences from a wide range of musical genres. Their new album Not Them, You, contains a mix of rock guitars, orchestral suites — and even a Rolling Stones cover.

The band — James Griffith, bass; Ed Harris, guitar and vocals; Woody Ranere, vocals and guitar; Matthew Pierce, keyboards; Michael Lowry, drums — recorded Not Them with Dave Fridmann and Tony Doogan, who previously worked with the Flaming Lips and Mogwai, respectively.

Those studio gurus helped bring to CD the richly dischordant sounds Lake Trout has been doling out to audiences since its beginnings in small clubs on the East Coast.
