Albert I've listened to Remedy for years. Each track stands out on it's own and I always notice some little detail I hadn't before. The artistry behind Son Lux always amazes me. Favorite track: Stolen.

Matthew Reeder Music I had the unique opportunity of being a part of the Son Lux Remedy choir, and that alone would've made the album a beautiful one. But even if I weren't a part of it, I'd still adore this album because of its intensity and how it foreshadows the upcoming Brighter Wounds album. Favorite track: Dangerous.

about

"Evil settles into everyday life when people are unable or unwilling to recognize it. It makes its home among us when we are keen to minimize it or describe it as something else." - Teju Cole, "A Time for Refusal” 

==========

Reemerging in 2017 with four new tracks, Son Lux’s new EP 'Remedy' is the ferocious trio’s response to an ever-encroaching reality of social and political upheaval. Reflective but defiant, Ryan Lott, Ian Chang, and Rafiq Bhatia synthesize their signature unpredictable experimentation into an explosive examination of what it means to live, to create, and to resist in America today. These songs were born the week of the 2016 election, and they capture a band both mournful and refusing to accept the new normal. "How does it feel, to be your own deceiver," Lott whispers in our ears, just ahead of the steady approach of swarming, mechanized woodwinds and rising torrents of noise. "I watch you fall, hollow and depleted. A city razed/raised, to bury you beneath it.”

The EP's final statement is a plea, sung in unison with a crowd-sourced choir of more than 300 people. "Find your voice, in the sea of surging bodies and breath, to form a melody, to find a remedy."

What began as a solo project for founder Ryan Lott expanded in 2014, thanks to a kinship with Ian Chang and Rafiq Bhatia too strong to ignore. ... more
