TUESDAY BLUES! Autolux - Turnstyle Blues

Autolux - Turnstyle Blues (2004)

I first heard of Autolux from a good friend who lives in LA. who kept going on about them - I bought their debut "Future Perfect" and must admit, I thought "..it's alright" and then put the CD back into my collection and didn't listen to it again until it randomly appeared on my iPod a few months later....that second time, I was blown away! Whatever reason I didn't get it the first time just shows how some things may need a different frame of mind for it to hit home.  Their blend of noise pop is like Sonic Youth meets UNKLE.  Unsurprisingly they've have featured on two of UNKLE's albums "War Stories" & "Where did the night fall".
I'm now a super-fan....and not the only one, their set on Nigel Goodrich's "From the basement" is awesome. They've opened for N.I.N., Queens of the Stone Age and PJ Harvey. Super chilled, super cool and the girl plays the drums!

Really good. As for women drummers, it might be their slightly different sense of rhythm that appeals. Just a thought.

Love it! I know a 6 year old girl this would really appeal to as well. Her female musical role models are Meg White and Karen O. Need more girls in bands...

Sense of rhythm is always important and uniform syndrome? Sounds like a very interesting condition! No, for me it'll be all about intelligent conversation.

Oh my god, I didn't even realise it but I know this song! I think I heard it on XFM's Exposure whilst driving and didn't manage to remember the track by the time I got home! Thanks SFW once again!
