LUKA is the recording project of Toronto artist Luke Kuplowsky and his friends. His latest work, Summon Up A Monkey King (Yellow K Records), is a series of gentle mediations on love guided by by flamenco tinged nylon string guitar and supported by electric flourishes, meditative drumming and the vocals of singer-songwriters Ada Dahli and Julie Arsenault. At times, recalling the conversational deadpan of Lou Reed and at others the airy lightness of Arthur Russell, LUKA's voice is a nuanced and rich tenor that is comforting as it is arresting.
