The Luyas Announce New Album – “Animator,” First Single Available for Download


What a great day to be a Luyas fan! The group announces the follow-up album to 2011’s Too Beautiful To Work. Titled Animator, the new record was created through a particularly difficult time following the sudden death of a close friend. Through both the introspection caused after losing someone and the act of joining together for the sole purpose of music, Animator – an album that is “intuitive, seductive, moody and textural,” came to be. Animator is out on Dead Oceans October 16, but you can listen to the first single, “Fifty Fifty,” below. Premiering earlier this afternoon at Pitchfork, the song is up for 1,000 free downloads – after it will continue to be available for streaming!

There’s something almost supernatural to the feel of the record. “Animator is supposed to be some weird resuscitation. The animator’s job is to create the semblance of movement in things that cannot move themselves. The musician’s is to make us feel like something is happening with a sound,” explains singer and multi-instrumentalist Jessie Stein.
