Luke Wyatt's music is not but one thing, it channels a variety of influences and inspirations. Some of these are musical, some are not.
For many years he has released music, previous outings have been for the likes of Ron Morelli's infamous label L.I.E.S, Mexican Summer, Not Not Fun Records and Unknown To The Unknown amongst others. Each of his records have represented a different sense of musical style and identity. Now in the present he describes his relationship with music and creativity, referencing his thought processes and the tracks which have helped formulate such a broad background in sound. All of this as he releases a new album called "Here Comes language" on Valcrond Video.
"This "playlist" will not make sense as something most people would want to play through. These songs just represent different pieces of my thinking that I usually hold in balance when I approach making music. There could be 1000 other songs instead of these; I'm not good at pulling fancy references off the top of my head, or even when I think really hard. I'm more attracted to convincing weirdos that Elton John's "Sacrifice" is important than pushing obscure gems, that's easy. And I do enjoy writing this kind of bullshit, I'm not complaining."

Ymo- Wild Ambitions
I played the fuck out of YMO 10 years ago so sometimes can’t listen anymore but have to acknowledge that they are a core template as I move towards making vocal music. This might be my favorite song of theirs, it’s got everything. Find out for yourself, I don’t like describing music with words. I’m reading a biography of the architect Louis Kahn and it’s pissing me off because you can’t write about buildings either, you just have to go be inside, and outside of them.
