VIDEO PREMIERE: LITRONIX “FOR ALL THE SPECIAL SOULS”
Last year Kevin Litrow and his solo persona Litronix put out Elvis Lives, an album that was something between a recalibration and a reinvention. Recorded by the esteemed producer Greg Ashley, Elvis Lives saw Litrow dial down his signature throbbing Suicide-style synthesizer and motorik robo-rhythms to explore something more traditionally transcendental: guitar and human voice, channeling the full force of the human spirit. ►
VIDEO PREMIERE: LITRONIX “KENTER CANYON”
Kevin Litrow's Litronix is a project about discovery—of self, of psyche and psychology, of potential and personality and more. The pill imagery that surrounded his last full-length Pump The Gas (reviewed here) in 2017 offered a simple signal: he's here to help you feel better. But now he's got a new song, and a new formula, too. "Kenter Canyon" is instantly different from Pump The Gas' seething Suicide-slash-Sensations' Fix synthesizer songs. Litronix performs tonight, June 5, at the Wayfarer in Costa Mesa with Jesika Von Rabbit and Coleman Moore—get tickets here! Full video credits below. ►

And with help from Litronix, you don’t have to get stuck. Litronix will perform on Thurs., July 27, at the Hi-Hat with Avi Buffalo and Alina Bea. This interview by Chris Ziegler. ►

N O W: ARE YOU NEW AGE?
The music sounds layered and full of sophisticated studio wizardry to the untrained ear, but if you’ve seen N O W live, you know Litrow can actually summon this kind of ingenuity on demand, live-looping wah-wah keys, rhythms, and guitars into a lush Lego fortress of music all around him that he can then sing and dance over. ►
