La Luz - Floating Features LPLabel: Hardly Art
Vinyl LP pressing. Los Angeles has often been described as a "dream factory" - both a mecca where dreamers converge to pursue long-held aspirations, and a topography of hallucinogenic contradictions: enchanting tangerine sunsets diffused by smog, crystal-clutching spiritualists mingling with deep-pocketed narcissists, rows of scenic palms competing with garish billboards for commuters' attention. It was against this backdrop that the four members of La Luz - singer/guitarist Shana Cleveland, drummer Marian LI Pino, keyboardist Alice Sandahl, and bassist Lena Simon - conceived of Floating Features, the band's third studio album. For this, their most ambitious release yet, La Luzconsulted landscapes both physical and psychological.
