This is the third album by Australian Folk Duo Luluc. The band is currently based out of Brooklyn, with members Zoë Randell and Steve Hassett. The album also features J Mascis in “Me and Jasper” and The Dirty Three's Jim White on “Genius.” Hassett’s take on the album: “Life is something you get, and you can get sidetracked for years and even destroy it, or you can remember that you've got some control over your life.”
Recommend: 4, 9, 10
FCCs: 5, 6
1) (3:01) Spring - Slow, a pretty, choral lamentation on the end of Spring. Fades out.
2) (4:14) Heist - Slow, muted intro, then clear, pure vocals pierce through. Chorus-y background comes in.
3) (4:34) Kids - Slow, quiet guitar underneath far-away sounding vocals.
4) * (2:21) Controversy - Syncopated singing over finger-picking guitar and plinking bells.
5) (5:12) Cambridge - FCC “fuck yeah” - Slow, spacey feel, same ethereal vocals.
6) (3:23) Me and Jasper - FCC “bitching” - Acoustic guitar underneath sad-sounding harmonies.
7) (3:19) Genius - Interesting, syncopated drum intro. Dreamy vocals.
8) (3:06) Moon Girl - Mid/slow, pretty finger-picked guitar melody under pleasant, calming vocals.
9) * (1:55) Needn’t Be - Begins with solo vocals, weaves in futuristic piano sound with playful guitar plucking.
10) * (4:05) Sculptor - Title track, mysterious-sounding vocals over a variety of instruments.
