Lux Courageous - Reasons That Keep the Ground Near

More indie than pop, Lux Courageous rocks with sonic overtones and even more important subtle undertones that are hard to pick up the first time you listen. Their use of pianos, slow, articulate drums, and rhythmic and well-placed fills and stops create a super detailed musical picture that makes the band so damn good. Songs range from the slow, emotional ("Seatbelts are Saviors") to the upbeat, quicker ballads ("Safe at Last"). This is my personal reccommendation. If you don't like it, delete it. If you do like it, well, that's why I'm doing this. Standout tracks: "Wearing Dangerous," and "Barely Enough." Rating: 9.5/10
