Existential Rock from NYC: Son Lux

Existential Rock from NYC: Son Lux

Son Lux, brainchild of classically trained composer Ryan Lott, bravely explores and blends genres that our average NYC hipster won't find too attractive - industrial, jungle, jazz, ambient, hip hop, and - of course - classical (no trace of surf music here). The result is an epic, almost schizofrenic carousel of sounds that picks up where Radiohead's Kid A left off, but with an even eerier approach to existential rock. Landis Smither's video of the single "Weapons VII" adds a sexy cinematic layer that's appropriately part David Lynch (those red curtains!) and part Japanese horror movie.
