Well, Ryan Lott, a.k.a. Son Lux, has really done his career a solid by nabbing gothic pop ingenue of the moment Lorde for his latest single, "Easy (Switch Screens)." The moody electronica maverick assembles engaging grooves on his computer with the ear of a modern classical composer and the bounce of a hip-hop producer—equal parts Nico Muhly and J Dilla. Diced bits of horns, drums, strings, guitars, organs and the mandolin of Chris Thile swirl about in his new EP, Alternate Worlds.
