Bones is the fourth studio album released by American musician Son Lux (a.k.a. Ryan Lott), who first came to public knowledge in 2008 with his breathtaking debut, At War With Walls and Mazes, followed by We Are Rising in 2011. Released in October 2013 via Joyful Noise Recordings, Lott’s third album Lanterns has spawned a handful of very successful singles, including “Alternate World” (stream below).
The song features guest vocals from Ieva Berberian, Cameron Schenk, Aaron Strumpel and Shara Worden, which provide a counterpoint to Lott’s raspy vocals. Other guests include Chris Thile on the mandolin and Christopher Wray on pedal stell and bass.
