ROCK | Lost Cousins 

On its soulful debut EP, "Not Now What We Were," Kingston, Ontario's Lost Cousins prove itself to be seasoned indie rock scholars. Crooning Local Natives-inspired vocals coast over sidewinding guitar leads and organ bursts that would feel right at home on a Foals record. While Lost Cousins wear its influences on its sleeve, the music contained on "Not Now What We Were" never comes across as anything less than unique and inspired. The track "Can You Make Me Feel Blue?" sounds like Otis Redding performing at the Back to the Future prom and "Strange Dreams" is so infectious that its "Careless Whisper" sax line actually feels cool, which is no small feat.

Lost Cousins plays with Blue Falcon and Mela on Thursday, July 7, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 7:30 p.m. $5.;
