Luxury Wafers Exclusive: AU, live @ Kingsize Soundlabs with video and mp3s

by Landry on February 1, 2010

AU performing live at Kingsize Soundlabs in Los Angeles for Luxury Wafers, an indie music blog.

AU is Luke Wyland with Dana Valatka, two very healthy-appearing guys from Portland, Oregon. Together, the team physically invests itself in Wyland’s epic, heady arrangements to construct all-encompassing, golden originals, oft frenzied and furious, intense yet delightfully naive, all dripping with complete lushness. There’s so much going on in AU’s songs – which clock in between 5 and 10.5 minutes – that the most enjoyable approach to listening is total surrender to and immersion in the spectacular worlds they create. It’s a feeling experience, a right brain extravaganza perhaps best described as Fellini through your ears.

Album recordings of RR vs D and Ida Walked Away can be found on Versions. Summerheat comes from Verbs. The Letter P and We the Flavor (both working titles) are special, brandy new, never-before-released treats! Enjoy!
