Transit Transit - TBD
FILTER Grade: 87%

Autolux crawls through sophomore album Transit Transit, paring the exquisite agony of rush hour traffic with Lynchian surrealism. The finely tuned claustrophobia pays high dividends when released in shoegaze “Audience No. 2” and “Supertoys.” However, it’s the stripped-down moments that catch the ear. Carla Azar’s vocals give Yo La Tengo a run for its money during “The Bouncing Wall,” while the ethereal title track’s haunting piano could comfort even the most harried commuter.
