Date added: 05/15/2013 Son Lux signs with Joyful Noise // New 7" available now...

We are very pleased to announce that Son Lux has signed with Joyful Noise!

Son Lux is Ryan Lott - music school grad, member of sss (with Serengeti & Sufjan Stevens), and one of the most inventive composers around. Son Lux’s debut recording, At War With Walls and Mazes (Anticon), earned him the title of "Best New Artist" by NPR's All Songs Considered. In 2011 he followed up this release with We Are Rising, an album written and recorded in just 28 days. And just last week Son Lux contributed to our 2013 Flexi Disc series with the cryptic and dreamy single "Black Waters".

Son Lux's third album, titled "Lanterns" is slated for release in October. As a precursor, we are releasing TEAR, a conceptual 7" featuring one new song in two distinct parts. The music featured on TEAR is exclusive to this 7" and will not be included on the upcoming full-length. However, this'll give you a taste of the next-level shit you can expect to hear on "Lanterns".

TEAR is limited to just 300 copies on glass-green w/ black haze vinyl. Featuring custom letterpress artwork, each copy is hand-numbered and signed by Ryan Lott (aka Son Lux). $7 purchase includes an instant MP3 Download.
