LUKA - Summon up a Monkey King

Now a heart-on-sleeve balladeer, I first encountered Luke Kuplowsky as part of the agreeably moddish rockers Broken Bricks, but hadn't yet checked out this new incarnation that's been percolating along for a couple years now. Dropping a new slab of wax, Kuplowsky has turned down the volume, even when backed by electric guitar and drums. Some of the material leans a little heavily on Jens Lekman-isms, but his discovery of the value of quality backing vocals sells the unabashedly-earnest openness.
