Smart Bets: Luzius Stone

Here's a show that's been a looooong time in the making: Luzius Stone (the music project of WNC-based artist Justin Miles) finally performs songs from new album Electric Dream. Miles spent a year in Regensburg, Germany, working with producer Nicholas Balachandram of Elephantom Studio before returning to Asheville to complete this record (an EP that evolved into a full-length debut) at Echo Mountain. Miles sites influences like Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beck and Wu-Tang Clan; but songs like the the edgy neo-power rocker "Go" and electro-pop noir track "Past Life" nod to dark post-punk and bright world-beat grooves. While the album is not yet available, Luzius Stone fans can get an early listen at The Odditorium on Sunday, Oct. 13. 9 p.m. $5. Photo by Shaina Lowney
