ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Luxe Canyon is, at its core, two brothers and Seattle natives, Kyle and Matt Nielsen. The band's origins can be traced back as far as 1995, when they were jamming daily in their parents' garage: Kyle on electric guitar and Matt on drums. Inspired by bands such as Smashing Pumpkins and Radiohead, they immediately were writing their own songs and making home recordings.

Gradually moving away from their alternative rock roots, they continually experimented with their own sound, drawing influence from My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless," Paul McCartney's "Ram," and Brian Wilson's original SMiLE sessions. Both brothers went on to study sound engineering and music theory in college, further improving their songwriting and recording abilities.

Having recorded over 200 songs and through countless band name changes (Orson and Buried Treasure to name just two), Luxe Canyon represents both the result of years of cultivating a unique style but also their more recent immersion into the world of electronic music and its endless possibilities.

Their self-titled debut album, recorded entirely at their home recording studio, is concise and meticulously constructed. The songs unfold with a range of stylistic and emotional complexity, at once discontented, transcendent, and sensual. This is not the work of beginners but rather just the first official offering from a duo who have dedicated nearly their entire lives to advancing their musical craft.
