Luluc have friends in high places. They can count Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney) and Matt Berninger (The National) among their fans, while Sculptor features contributions from J. Mascis, Dirty Three’s Jim White and more. Their second LP for Sub Pop is full of plaintive, wistful synth-pop ditties evocative of both Zola Jesus and Angel Olsen.

8/10 Clinton Staff review, 11 July 2018

Aaron Dessner (the National) has previously taken this folky duo under his wing and he appears on this their second record alongside guests J Mascis and Jim White (Dirty Three). You can see pretty quickly what all these celebs are all getting so enthused about. The duo have lovely thick harmonies which they slather over lovely music on stunning opener 'Spring' which has lyrics by Japanese poet Ise. On 'Heist' they come across like a more straight-down-the-middle Low. Zoe Randall has the same soft almost gospel-ish delivery as Mimi Parker especially on 'Kids' whilst on 'Controversy' the delivery taps into the wordy delivery of Mount Eerie. 

Though it's Randall's show, Steve Hassett colours in the sound with all sorts of instruments but never smothers the sound. Like the best slowcore bands they keep things simple and evocative. This leaves Randall's voice space to dominate the sound and her lyrics are always thoughtful and well considered. The band follow the same path as many bands who have gone before  - Galaxie 500, Mazzy Star and on the more harmonic tracks Fleet Foxes but they bring something new to the table with a distinctive approach to their songcraft.
