Heathered Pearls, Autolux and DyE
Heathered Pearls -- “Warm Air Estate”
Autolux -- “Soft Scene”
Autolux is one of those bands I enjoy pretty well while they are on, then immediately forget about until someone mentions them again. I think the name doesn’t help. It’s kind of generic, and not in that blank conceptual way (say, “Objekt” or “New Order”) that feels vaguely sinister, but in a way that makes it sound like commercially-branded product. It sounds like a household appliance, or its special cleaning mode. I have a similar problem with Solvent.
Where was I again?
Oh yeah, that song and its video are pretty good. Autolux have a new full-length on the way.
DyE -- “Hole in Ocean”
This one is SFW, and uses footage from the Dali/Disney collaboration Destino. I wonder if the Aeon Flux people ever saw storyboards or something, of if the influence runs the other way, since Destino was completed in 2003.
What are you all listening to?
