In summary: Lux’s debut album, We Are Not The Same, showcases a talented duo act still in the midst of growing pains. The album bounces around between dancey electronics, raucous guitar sounds, and ethereal vocal lines (Blondie’s female vocal style/Droning male vocal reminds me of Lou Reed). A lot of fuzzed-out guitar and distorted effects throughout the whole album. Much like a combination of Blondie and Sonic Youth. Many moods for every song (it's easy to see that Lux want to be a bit of everything to everyone).
FCC clean

Duo = David Chandler + Leah Rosen

**1. (2.52)- mid-tempo, fuzzed-out guitar, male vocal, warm, intimate, playful, adolescence memory, repetitive lyrics, nice song!!!
2. (2.41)- reverberating female vocal starts off, dreamy, reverie, atmospheric, eerie, gentle vocal, brooding
3. (3.19)- electro-effects starts off, female vocal, slow-tempo, nocturnal, HYPNOTIC, searching, weird ending
4. (2.34)- distorted guitar and drum pounds start off, slow-tempo, Lou-Reed-droning male vocal, Jesus and Mary Chain-reminiscent, repetitive lyrics, druggy
5. (4.05)- fuzzed-out guitar starts off, double vocal lines, slow/mid tempo, sentimental, melancholy, “eerie effects at the middle” (watch out!), theatrical, abruptly stops at the end
6. (3.25)- fuzzed-out/distorted guitar starts off, droning/whispering male vocal, slow/mid-tempo, female vocal adds in during middle, beats stand out, distorted /raucous/messy effects at the middle
7. (2.34)- Slightly fuzzed effects fade in, dizzy background, no vocal
8. (2.29)- innocent/childhood-memory male droning vocal starts off, fuzzed guitar, adolescent, lo-fi, childhood, childish lyrics, abrupt ending
9. (3.14)- electro-intro, female vocal, grotesque feeling, too many moods can’t be able to match them together, volatile, atmospheric
10. (3.23)- eerie guitar effects fade in, noisy/messy, mid-tempo, overdriven guitar riffs, making different effects and weird sounds, noisy layers at the end
*11. (3.27)- electro layers fade in, mid-tempo, female reverb vocal, ethereal, atmospheric, fairies
*12. (4.03)- electro and punk layers fade in, female vocal, slow/mid tempo, “a mix feeling of romantic and reckless”
13. (6.29)- longest song, idle effects start off and idle and idle and idle (watch out!), late start, sudden burst of fuzzed out guitar after about a minute, Jesus and Mary Chain style, except for the late start, I can say it’s good though!!! fades out.
