INTERVIEW // Jessie Stein Talks to Nonstop Sound

The Luyas’ Jessie Stein recently moved to New York City and here she is talking to NBC’s Nonstop Sound. In this new piece, Jessie talks about her reasoning for making music and the feeling she wants her records to invoke. “I guess it’s in a way an attempt to combat the commodification of everything.” Watch the interview above.

Finished with the first interview? Check out Jessie in a new episode of the Beginnings podcast.

WATCH // The Luyas Perform “Talking Mountain” for Out of Town Films

The Luyas met with Philadelphia’s Out Of Town Films during CMJ for one of their many live sessions. Filmed in the basement of an old loft somewhere in Greenpoint, the video features The Luyas performing “Talking Mountain.” It is a track off their recently released album, Animator.

You can also check out the audio from The Luyas’ live CMJ session at the Fred Perry Artist Lounge / Stratosphere Sound Recording Studios. InSound has an exclusive download – you’ll find it HERE.

Enjoy your audio and video, but get out and see The Luyas live! Full tour schedule and ticket links available on our tour listings page.

WATCH // The Luyas’ New “Montuno” Video

The Luyas share their breathtaking new video for “Montuno.” Clocking in at just under nine minutes, the video is a collage of vibrant characters as they move through each life cycle. Director Mylene Simard highlights the Animator epic by taking the viewer through sprawling landscapes and wooded hideaways all backed by gorgeous skies. Whether taken by story, costume or setting, it’s impossible not to be completely enthralled by this work. Watch “Montuno” above or at Refinery29, where it premiered earlier today.

See The Luyas on tour! They’re playing Quebec City’s Le Cercle tonight! Full list of dates HERE.
