New music {Son Lux}

Son Lux

Love this new album {spotify}. From a review by NPR’s Mike Katzif:

For years, Ryan Lott, the innovative beat-making composer and sonic mastermind of Son Lux, has sat at the intersection of pop and classical, creating imaginative and complex music for every medium. The classically trained musician has scored for modern dance, TV ads and film — including last year’s The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby and the upcoming Paper Towns. Lott is also no stranger to collaboration: He’s worked with a wide array of artists, from Beyoncé producer Boots to composers like Nico Muhly, Caroline Shaw and Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry. As part of the supergroup Sisyphus, he’s even created electronic hip-hop alongside Sufjan Stevens and rapper Serengeti.
