"Tri-force of Quality"

This tri-force of quality is a representation of what is missing in many independent rock acts today. Rather than attempting to adapt to the latest indie styles in hopes of mass hipster acceptance, Lukali channels their talents into EXCELLENT musicianship and song writing. After reviewing the album, it became immediately evident that Lukali truly CARES about the craft of their songs. The album also provides a very eclectic mix of tunes, which keeps things interesting and gives the album major replay value. The clear result is a no-shtick, no-bullshit sound that will make you wish you could still venture into the local Camelot Music and browse the alternative cassette tape section. Recommended for fans of Guided by Voices, Sebadoh, etc. - Matthew Dorn


"mesmerizing..."

their mix of emotional pop is truly mesmerizing, especially when they get to that part of the song that just explodes. - Focus Magazine


"reckless abandon"

Lukali plays the kind of recombinant quasi-pop, sorta-rock hawked by emerging underground faves like Sebadoh and Pavement, wherein reckless abandon, an irreverent approach toward pop conventions and a fair amount of attitude can take you a long way. - Weekly Planet, Mark Warren

Bio

Force-fed too much sugar at an early stage of childhood development while in attendance at various dirty daycare centers throughout central Florida, the members of Lukali developed a need to constantly recreate the temporary sense of overwhelming bliss that could only be obtained by such detrimental, naive methods of upbringing.

In order to combine their efforts to research and develop new ways to inspire such feelings of happiness and inner harmony, Scott Becker, Brian Johnson, and Vinnie Cosentino formed a collective unit dedicated to creating aural vibrations. Through their studies, they found that when specific combinations of sonic waves were arranged in sequence, the feeling of joy a child gets when taking that first sip of kool-aid could indeed be reproduced!
