Review: Luxt

“American Beast”
(Blackliner Records)

Sacramento, Ca’s Luxt have attempted to up the ante on their latest release “American Beast”. Originality is definitely something that’s in Luxt’s corner here. They have crafted a unique and potent sound unlike what pollutes the mainstream of hard rock. The closest comparison I can give for Luxt is to a European band by the name of Guano Apes. Much like Guano Apes debut album truly impressed me, Luxt have landed themselves in my CD player on more than a few occasions. Vocalist Anna Christine is the driving force behind Luxt’s sound. Anna’s voice hook’s the listener in and then she can take them on a left hand turn out into uncharted territory. I highly recommend this album to anyone looking for someone looking for something a little different.
