Two Nights of Autolux

August 25th, 2010

The L.A.-based trio Autolux—Carla Azar (drums and vocals), Greg Edwards (guitar and vocals) and Eugene Goreshter (bass and lead vocals)—formed in 2000 when Goreshter and Azar met while writing the score for a play. After performing live several times, they released their self-produced debut EP, Demonstration, in March 2001. When T-Bone Burnett caught one of their shows, he decided to sign them to his (and the Coen Brothers’) label, DMZ. Their first full-length, the shoegazing Future Perfect, came out in 2004. The band toured behind the album but didn’t release a new album—although they did put out a few singles—for quite some time, or more specifically, six years: Their second LP, Transit Transit, somewhat reminiscent of My Bloody Valentine, came out earlier this month. So Autolux (above, doing “Supertoys” for From the Basement) is touring again. And you’ve got two chances to check out their new stuff when they play The Bowery Ballroom tomorrow and Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday.
