Luke Sweeney, El Lago, Texture: Yellow, Space City Mod Club says
Aerobic International's Luke Sweeney returns to Houston with EL LAGO, texture: Yellow & DJs Space City Mod Club!

San Francisco singer, songwriter, and guitarist Luke Sweeney picks up a variety of stylings from forebearers such as Marc Bolan, Al Green, and Stephen Malkmus like pavement bubblegum to build a bridge into new, unforged sonic territories of psychedelic pop. Meanwhile, the road ahead is laden with a palpable substance in the desperate characters, hapless escape artists, hopeless romantics, and spiritual imagery of his songs. Sweeney has recorded two critically acclaimed albums over the past three years: his 2013 self-released debut ‘Ether Ore’ gained praises for its “distinctly handcrafted feel” and “melodies that feel like opiates for the soul” (SF Chronicle), while his 2014 studio follow-up ‘Adventure:Us’ (Aerobic International) expanded into “far-reaching pop, psychedelic, and classic-rock realms with humor and irreverence—both calling cards of Sweeney's songwriting” (Portland Mercury). In between debuts at Noise Pop, CMJ, SXSW, and other festivals along various West Coast jaunts and U.S. tours, Sweeney has kept his pen sharp, his notebook handy, and the microphone on standby. Among the recordings due to surface in the near future are a limited-edition 7” release with novella via Aerobic International, and a full-length follow-up with ‘Adventure:Us’ producer Robin MacMillan and Sweeney’s band of accomplished players.
