CS Luxem has been most places. He’s “a lifer” as those in the business of the road would call it. Living that way--crossing state lines and timezones with the agility and smoothness of an old ascending rollercoaster--wears on mind, body and spirit, and can weigh one down. He and his music, however, are light even at their heaviest; a wind across a Kansan field. And it’s contagious! His distinct vocals, his playful rhythms (which are the essence of his sound) frollicking from coast to coast in a truer to life rendition of a road trip movie, where as simple a sight as the small hairs on your forearm made white in the sunshine can charm you to smile. Whether it be his polished pop jewels or his deep tidal pools of synthesized noise, CS Luxem entrances and invigorates the spirit.
"[June Igloo] is full of deftly written folk songs, alternating between droney loop-based spookfolk and bright, casual-feeling tunes oriented around guitar-strumming and storytelling seemingly made for and from easy summer porch-life...they conjure a mythical, magical realist Americana that is simultaneously escapist and, when compared to hyper-real spectacle-oriented urban life, reassuringly real." - Portals on June Igloo
