Sculptor can be consumed loud, because while Luluc's music is at times masterful in it's minimalism, it is anything but quiet in impact. A gripping quality certainly pulses through the band's third album. Songwriter and vocalist Zoe Randell writes with more experimentation and possibility here and sonically, the band has also broadened their palette significantly. Multi-instrumentalist, singer, and producer Steve Hassett mastered a spectrum of instruments to fully realize the album's expansive and daring vision. Randell and Hassett did nearly all of the writing, recording, and producing themselves, but their vision is far from insular. Guest contributions are made by J. Mascis (Dinosaur Jr), Aaron Dessner (The National, and producer of Passerby), Jim White of Dirty Three, Matt Eccles, and Dave Nelson. Recording took place in Luluc's new Brooklyn studio, which they built themselves.
