I'm listening to AU while I work, surprised that Luke's songs still make me feel comforted and joyful. I miss him.
AU has a new album coming out. It is amazing. It is a highrise of sound, stacked and digestive and dizzying. It is rich and hairy and ricocheted. It is caramel colored with burnt pieces. It is a mouth, pulled open, propelling sound, consuming ears. It is Luke's spirit, at a time of great transformation. It is a book that did not want to be cracked.
Luke drew this music from the deepest corners of his being. And bravely looked at what he had found.
