Album review: Autolux – ‘Transit Transit’ (ATP)

It's been six years, but they've spent them well

Six years might seem a ridiculous gap for Autolux to leave between albums but you can certainly hear where all the time went. The LA trio have branched out from the stoner-Sonic Youth feel of their excellent debut ‘Future Perfect’ to encapsulate ghostly piano ballads (‘Spots’), twisted ambient lullabies (‘The Science Of Imaginary Solutions’) and in the shape of the fantastic ‘Highchair’, a slice of slow-groove hip-hop that sounds like Timbaland going electro. This expansion of sound is also put together with the kind of meticulousness that makes ‘Transit Transit’ doubly compelling. Make the most of it, because we could all be dead by the time Autolux follow it up.
