Peaking Lights - Lucifer (Mexican Summer / Weird World)
This husband-and-wife duo caused quite a stir with the exciting mix of dreamy pop and bass-heavy dub grooves on their breakout second album, 936. Following the tumult of a new baby, a new label and moving cross-country, they recorded (and self-produced) their new album, Lucifer. While ‘Lucifer’ most immediately evokes Satan, I feel certain the only fire and brimstone that went into the making of this record did so in the form of matches, since its hazy soundscapes and mellow vibes lend themselves quite nicely to stoned head bobbing. While their elevated profile has allowed for cleaner production this time around, fans of their old work shouldn’t be disappointed: Lucifer follows a carbon fibre-brushed version of the 936 groove to heavenly effect.
Lucifer will be released on June 18. Listen to the album here.
