Biography

Los Angeles, United States (2000 – present)

Autolux is a Los Angeles based band mixing in elements of and , formed in 2000, (comprised of Eugene Goreshter: vocals/bass, Carla Azar: vocals/drums, and Greg Edwards: vocals/guitar, has just recently signed to TBD Records in the US for the release of their sophomore album, Transit Transit, and ATP Recordings for the rest of the world. The album was released on August 3rd, 2010. The band’s first record, Future Perfect, was released on T Bone Burnett s label, DMZ, under Columbia. Future Perfect was released in the winter of 2004 and began with “Turnstile Blues”, featuring one of the most distinctive drumbeats and musical atmospheres of any album in recent memory. A Pitchfork review stated, “In the first 10 seconds of the album opener, Carla Azar shames most every beat-maker with her ridiculous Leibezeit-cum-Bonham percussion.” The song created a vacuum of precise tumult that pulled you in, stretched you out, and spit your altered shape through a flawless cycle of songs. The album’s otherworldly moods and eclectic makeup of songs made it difficult to categorize and gained the band much deserved respect. Four and half years have passed since the band stopped touring on Future Perfect. But the space since then has been filled with activity - in spite of any obstacles thrown their way, including the process of freeing themselves from Columbia and escaping with full ownership of Future Perfect.

    Absolutely love Failure and am thrilled that they are back together and touring. However it is bittersweet considering this means no new Autolux music. (That I am aware of) Autolux is/was an amazing project and the best of all the post-Failure groups. (Sorry Ken Andrews/On/Year of the Rabbit, but it's true)

    Thought the person playing the drummer in the movie 'Frank' seemed familiar, and hey ho, it was Carla Azar!

    November is looking up! I just met Greg Edwards after the Raveonettes show on Saturday and he said Autolux will be playing some S. California warm up shows in November before they play with NIN.

    'love Future Perfect. 'love Transit Transit. It's time for a 3rd album to synthesize the former's rawness and the latter's complexity!

    A few facts: Transit Transit is underrated and might be better than Future Perfect. Eugene contributed some bass to Nine Inch Nails' new album! Autolux are opening for NIN again this year in Canada and also remixed a new song.

    Like Transit Transit, but Future Perfect is still one of the strongest albums, top to bottom, I've heard since its release.

    @Vidrio: Agreed. It's a grower for sure but once each song clicked it became an all-time favorite. I'm still not sick of it. FP is great but TT is superb.

    Transit Transit is a much more complex album to listen too in comparison to Future Perfect. At first I just couldn't get on with TT, I was not enjoying it, but I kept it in my playlists. Months go by, I put it on every now and then.... all be it, not very often. It took more spins than the average record for me to enjoy it, but I absolutely adore it now. Its so much more subtle and slower than FP.
