Son Lux call their music “genre-less,” isn't quite the case. But they adroitly layer clarinet sounds, rushing percussion, rubbery rhythmic noises, and chopped-off beats that just might be funk, if they could ever get to the one, instead of the nub of the one. It’s hard to dance to, but set your mind and your knees to the task, and you can dance to anything. Son Lux sound desperate, pleading, willing to give away everything they have and everything they need in return for something unspecified. Sad. But, resonant.
