The sound that is Lake Trout is hard to categorize. There are those who have used terms such as nu-jazz or organica. But even those come disappointly incomplete when describing Lake Trout. Certainly there jazz influences can be detected, but the influence of hip-hop, drum and bass, rock, and even house can be heard as well. Listen to releases and to the live set and you will see that Lake Trout does not deliver genres, they deliver emotion. They have the uncanny ability to pull you into their sonic landscape. And in this landscape, you are treated to an emotional rollercoster of smooth heady vibes and maniacal floor-moving rhythms, very often at the same time. And in a Lake Trout set, no one is left behind. It always settles on the groove.
Jazzy-borne, drum-n-bass visiting uberoriginal rockers

"Lake Trout started as a swoony jazzy thing that reminded me of Sting's _Dream of the Blue Turtles_. Then, a few years ahead of their time, the delved into a drum-n-bass thing that's in evidence in heaps on this release, Volume for the Rest of It. It isn't conventional drum n bass, in that it's all live (the drummer is SICK!), but also in that it rocks and rolls harder and farther than most. Excellent stuff!The band is of course off in another direction. More recently, they're more directly rock, losing the jazzy and electronic edges for something a bit more heavy and fast. Volume for the Rest of It is a great taste of them before that transition."
