Son Lux with Landlady
The Luminary welcomes Son Lux with Landlady on Friday, July 17. Doors at 8:00 pm, show at 9:00 pm. Tickets: $12 advance, $14 dos. Buy tickets.
Founded by producer-composer Ryan Lott in 2007, Son Lux “works at the nexus of several rarely-overlapping Venn Diagrams” (Pitchfork). With the recent additions to the band of guitarist-composer Rafiq Bhatia and drummer Ian Chang, Son Lux is now a ferocious trio both live and on record. Bones (June 23, 2015) is the first album documenting this new formation, and it draws from the three members’ unique and omnivorous musical vernaculars. Few bands have built a more impressive and varied array of collaborators: Lorde, Beyoncé producer Boots, Sufjan Stevens, Matthew Dear, Busdriver, Vijay Iyer, Nico Muhly and Pulitzer Prize winner Caroline Shaw.
"Landlady releases its second album, 'Upright Behavior' (Hometapes), this month. It joins a lineage of New York City art-rock bands that transmute existential questions and primal fears into exultant songs, bands like Talking Heads, TV on the Radio and Dirty Projectors." -THE NEW YORK TIMES
