Son Lux

Son Lux - Lost It To Trying
Son Lux - Easy

The swirling sounds on this long player by jack-of-all-trades Son Lux (from waaay back in October, part of my recapping-all-the-shit-I-forgot-to-shout-out-because-I-was-dealing-with-my-own-personal-problems-so-sorry series) reminds me a bit of Yeasayer's All Hour Cymbals debut and maybe some Timber Timbre at times, but honestly, it's rather difficult - if not impossible altogether - to pigeonhole Lanterns, with its organic old-world elements vs modern-day electronic beat experimentation, and a drastic, jarring shift between uplifting melodies and funeral-march-style dirges.
