((Autolux)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

One of our favorite bands, L.A.'s Autolux play layered guitar rock that crunches like Smashing Pumpkins, gazes like The Jesus & Mary Chain, and borrows some of Sonic Youth's feedback. The trio (guitar/bass/drums) all share singing duties in this band, and their peaceful male/female/male vocals float perfectly over the music's noisily melodic drones and freakouts. In other words, the music can be heavy and experimental, but the voices are always pretty.

Though Autolux are surprisingly under-the-radar on the East Coast, they've definitely played some big shows all over the world, including Coachella and All Tomorrow's Parties. And even Trent Reznor (Mr. Nails himself!) picked these guys to open for him on tour in 2005. It's not too late to get on the Autolux train. Go see them play.
