Autolux strive to piece together a web of different noises, ranging from blips and bleeps to distorted guitar fuzz and string-breaking strumming to pop-based vocal harmonies, in order to create a package much greater than the sum of its parts. Pussy’s Dead feels like a richer and more faithful articulation of what Autolux attempted with 2010’s Transit Transit, an album that does an excellent job flirting with the texture that Broadcast mastered a few years before, but falls flat under its own complexity.
Alternative, electro-rock, post punk.
