Little Atlas

Wanderlust (ProgRock Records)

Miami quartet Little Atlas calls itself an art-rock band, but its music skews closer to the adventures of Genesis, Yes, and Rush than the undulations of Franz Ferdinand and the Futureheads. Lead vocalist Steve Katsikas sings songs such as "The Prisoner" and "The Ballad of Eddie Wanderlust" that are filled with vague metaphorical torments: "I must find a way to fly/Find a way to soar/Beyond these walls/Be with you evermore," he sings on the latter over an elastic midtempo groove led by guitarist Roy Strattman. Though rendered sincerely, Little Atlas's dreams of "wanderlust" are not for cynics, and more likely to attract devotees of old-school rock than kids interested in the latest thing.
