RIYL: SOHN, Phantogram, Grizzly Bear

Label: Joyful Noise

Son Lux, creators of auditory bliss like “Lost it To Trying” and “Easy” are finally releasing the first two out-of-print albums that saw them find their style – At War With Walls & Mazes and We Are Rising along with a one-of-a-kind album featuring unreleased or rare recordings spanning 2008 to 2017 and is only available in this bundle.

Finding themselves where they are today took a personal challenge from Ryan Lott, who started the band as a solo artist and wanted to create a pop record that didn’t need any verse/chorus repetition. In so doing, he created a very rich and textured sonic experience that relied on simple beats surrounded by disparate pieces of music and a soft yet urgent chant of singing underscoring all sorts of inspiration from Electronic to Hip-Hop, to Jazz. Now that eleven years have passed since the first album, you can filter the inspiration and the uniqueness to find out how he (and Son Lux by association) one of the lasting alternative bands of the last decade.

Individual albums of At War With Walls & Mazes and We Are Rising can be found on the webstore but are not limited, and the Remnants album can only be found via this bundle.
