LUKA is nylon string poet-crooner Luke Kuplowsky and his gentle rock n' rollers. In their first two albums, Calling All Cats Black (2013), and Summon Up a Monkey King (2016), Kuplowsky has developed a vocal and lyrical style of opposites: deadpan spoken-word delivery transitions into a rich melodic tenor; poetic musings fall alongside conversational and plain-spoken observations. His latest work What Kind of Animal (2017) was recorded live in a single session and showcases eight poetic works that unravel questions of self-doubt, companionship, integrity and faith amidst sonic extremes of patient stillness and careening noise.
