Lasting Impression, Lost Letters, Luxi
She’s on her second long-play and fly as ever. Milwaukee’s own Luxi dropped Lost Letters last November. Her sound brings dreamy, synthy, mod-y all together with a cool intensity despite its down tempo pitch.
Check this clip of Luxi doing the honors for Buhu Band and Dramatic Lovers at Cactus Club back in October, a dry run for the release of her latest batch of waveforms.
Not really knowing who she was, I ran across Luxi at Milwaukee Makers Market last summer hawking presses of her 2017 release Geometric Universe and some diy up-cycled gear branded Wicked Alley.
She was all cagey but in a cool way. After spinning the album, I’m a little mad at Luxi for helping feed my addiction for new presses of sounds from synth’s extended family.
On a separate musical excursion, I came across Molly Nilsson who happens to be sharing a poster with Luxi tomorrow night at Ivy House. I had to do a double take, and run through my bandcamp following list to make sure I wasn’t crazy. Nilsson, a German-born artist, keeps the gentle and dreamy synth spectrum vibrating.
With like 12 releases, a video game, and the ability to thrown in with sneaky good international artist bookings, Luxi can do what ever the funk she wants.
