The Luyas (Dead Oceans / Paper Bag)

Hailing from Montreal, The Luyas are Pietro Amato, Mathieu Charbonneau, Bucky Wheaton, Sarah Neufeld and Jessie Stein. It is easy to get lost in the Luyas’ musical world. Their retro-futurist songs are drenched in echo, and built from guitars, French horn, piles of keyboards, drums and percussion. Singer/guitarist Jessie Stein expands the band’s already wide musical vocabulary when she plays the Moodswinger — a 12-string electric zither designed by the Dutch experimental luthier Yuri Landman. The band’s brilliant debut album, Too Beautiful To Work was embraced by critics and was also included on the long list for the 2011 Polaris Music Prize.

Their latest album, Animator, was recorded in their hometown of Montreal and created in the midst and reflection of a close friend’s sudden death. It flows through its own catharsis with a profound depth and richness.
