Artist: DEAD LUKE
Title: American Haircut
Format: LP
Label: Floridas Dying
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Its bright and sunny out, the birds are chirping, and summer is in full swing, but in here American Haircut is filling the air with a cold haze of serious downer-vibed psych. No sun in these parts just dead vegitation and an iced over ground where a ghostly voice repeats over and over "You know youre bringing me down." So put on your coat, alter your mind, turn out the lights, and get lost in the nine extended jams that fill this album. DEAD LUKE has released three killer singles (two on Sacred Bones, one on Sweet Rot) as well as a number of tapes, and a collaborative 12-inch with Zola Jesus. This is his first LP.  Limited to 500 copies." -Floridas Dying

Title: s/t
Format: Cass
Label: Jerkwave
Country: USA
Price: $5.00
"Dead Luke is in fact dead, announced last January. This self-titled cassette, released nearly a year ago, was until the announcement his only recorded document. It seems Luke is hungrier in zombification, as he has since released a slew of vinyl and plans for a wealth more. Familiar to the Sacred Bones scene/sound, and released by Florida?s Sky-Fi, the cassette?s thirteen tracks come needled with chintzy synthesizers and dipped in reverb, crashing with an Ariel Pink mad genius, though stuck in some wonderful limbo between painfully simple pop structures and the anti-structure of dark ambient neighbors like Hive Mind and Burial Hex. Drum machines ramble in every direction, and in every configuration; guitars come and go, seemingly tuned then set back down; basslines dread into a funk then relax into broad, warped whir. Vocals are effected until indecipherable, rendering abstract and often obtuse the themes of titles like ?The Thermostat Has Shorted Out?, ?Night Of The Zodiac?, and ?Oh God Make It Stop? - to be read entirely against the music, an often steely gothic of organs, sermoned mutterings, and other loose hairs of modern Americana trash. Strangely it works like magic. Call it ?bright nihilism?." -Jerkwave

Artist: DEAD LUKE
Title: Meanwhile... In The Midwest
Format: LP
Label: Moon Glyph
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Amidst pilfering of collective bargaining rights, the storming of public buildings in union protests, and subsequent recalls of elected officials, a bubbling of proletariat discontent in Madison, WI has shed light on a region of the country often overlooked. Emerging from this unrest comes DEAD LUKEs second full-length and first Moon Glyph release, Meanwhile... In The Midwest, which takes the portentously hazy half-songs contained within his debut LP and solidifies them into a raw, lysergic-crystalline acid cocoon. In the albums final moments we are greeted to the triumphant drifting of "Endless High," a fuzzed-out call to arms for the No Coast. On "God Of Nothing" Luke conjures a hymnal drone of weaving elements peaking into a self-contained nihilist jam. While harkening back to the nebulous "American Haircut," Luke now unleashes his vexed voice in parallel with a movement currently percolating to a once apathetic surface." - Moon Glyph.

"Wisconsins Dead Luke lays down 60 minutes of a-side worthy driving, blown out jams that sound like they were mixed down through a missile command console. Whatever you want to call it, shitgaze, dirtwave, punk from the future... it delivers." -Sky Fi
