Boomkat Product Review:
Son Lux’s second album is a gem, but its choral pop isn’t exactly in synch with Anticon’s chunkier, wordier history. Sure there’s a beat every so often, but Son Lux (aka Ryan Lott) has more in common with The Dirty Projectors’ chamber pop than with Clouddead. Still, Anticon has been on a voyage of rediscovery for the last few years, and they’ve rarely chanced up on a record as unashamedly beautiful as ‘We Are Rising’. Lott’s epic arrangements are perfectly matched with the subtle electronic production; strings and glockenspiels tumble and crash around his distinct, damaged vocals like an operatic alternative to Bright Eyes’ classic ‘Digital Ash in a Digital Urn’. There is an almost ambient quality to Lott’s songwriting, the textures from his voice and the expert production form a syrupy groundsheet or harmony, and the album grows like curling smoke from the bottom up. Gorgeous and unexpected - look closer.
