WMSE Song of the Day (Tune In Turn Up): Son Lux “All the Right Things”

words by Brigitte Kiepert

In January, 2011, NPR approached composer and electronic musician, Son Lux (a.ka. Ryan Lott), to take the ‘RPM Challenge‘ – to produce en entire record in February.  Artists must create ten tracks or 35 minutes of music in the shortest month of the year. With a hesitant ‘yes’ and with the fact in mind that his debut album, At War With Walls And Mazes, took four years to produce resonating in his mind, Lott successfully created, We Are Rising. The album is incredibly engaging and filled with lush and vibrant brass beats and melodic drifts. This album proves sometimes the best art created is work that isn’t allowed a second guess. Listen to “All the Right Things”, above, or at SoundCloud, *here*.
