Montreal’s The Luyas are set to tour Canada and the west coast of North America with Califone in support of 2012’s acclaimed album Animator.
Recorded and produced at the Treatment Room by band member and experimental brass player Pietro Amato and mixed by Jace Lasek of the Besnard Lakes at his Breakglass Studios in the band’s hometown of Montreal, Animator is a cathartic collection of songs. As melodically compelling as it is artistically rich, Animator is intuitive, seductive, moody and textural.
The band’s live show has been charming fans since the release of 2011’s Too Beautiful To Work, and they’ve toured the world with the likes of the Antlers, the Dodos and Blonde Redhead. The Luyas are ascending a trajectory of artistic vision and creativity, and asking if we, too, are curious.
