Sons Of An Illustrious Father
Sons Of An Illustrious Father
Sons Of An Illustrious Father are a band. Ezra says immediately: “We have to make music otherwise we will combust.”Started in as a group of two, who grew to five, but settled at three, Sons Of An Illustrious Father is the musical outlet of Josh Aubin, Lilah Larson, and Ezra Miller. Everyone plays a little of everything; everyone writes the songs. They frequently trade instruments, and co-produce their music They’ve released a couple much-loved albums, an EP, and have toured multiple times throughout America. Their sound is a bit punk, a bit folk, a bit raw, and a bit elemental, a mix they’ve summed up and named “genre queer.” Due out in mid 2018 Sons’ newest creation, a tightly-coiled, gorgeously prismatic collection of 9 songs, is titled Deus Sex Machina: or, Moving Slowly Beyond Nikola Tesla. After two albums, it’s the first time the band has experimented with electronics, nestling machine-made droplets and hums, turns and whirs, amongst their visceral melodies. It’s also an album that reconciles with the struggles of our now, a response to the sociopolitical and technological climate. And like all things Sons do, it’s an all-encompassing response - a record for every person who feels unseen, unidentified, ill at ease in the current political climate who seeks them out as a salve. Their inherent inclusivity, vulnerability, and expression makes them more than three parts creating a whole; these things make the band and their expansive new record a resonant, emotional movement.

Nobody is more surprised about having created a full-length ANMLPLNET album than the band itself: Slothrust leader Leah Wellbaum and drummer/singer Mickey Vershbow. The two met while they were both immersed in the Boston music scene and then went on to pursue separate musical careers on opposite coasts. Their debut LP Fall Asleep displays a magnetic musical bond that transcends physical distance and hectic schedules to make an epic of psychedelic dream rock.
