TAS In Session: Autolux

Tags: Autolux

They took their time, thwarted by record label issues, but Autolux finally returned this year with their long-awaited second album, the haunting and cerebral Transit Transit. As The Alternate Side's Alisa Ali discovered, the Los Angeles trio has never sounded so good, as demonstrated by the taut quartet of songs they played for us, including "Supertoys" and "The Science of Imaginary Solutions."

TAS Interview: Greg Edwards of Autolux

Fans of the taut, cerebral music of Los Angeles trio Autolux have reason to celebrate. The band, which released their debut way back in 2004, finally released a sophomore album, Transit Transit, this summer and are in the midst of a headlining tour which brings them to the New York area for three dates this week. As guitarist and vocalist Greg Edwards explained to The Alternate Side, the six-year gap between their debut and second album wasn't quite a hiatus, but an indie label rebirth.
