Son Lux Press Highlights
"2008 Best New Artist" - NPR's All Songs Considered
"Affecting, resonant, and engaging. There are lights in the darkness and a holy ghost in the Son Lux machine. The lyrical concerns of Sufjan Stevens circa Seven Swans, production techniques from Massive Attack, and the classical habits of Nico Muhly."
"Under the name Son Lux, composer Ryan Lott makes incredible songs in which his own repetitive, plainchantlike singing is laid over grids of electronic sounds. The results are sort of formless electro-lieder, but the formlessness is their winning feature. The songs dissolve and emerge like a whale breaching in slow motion." – ARTFORUM
