Their first album from 2004, Future Perfect, should have been called Past Perfect for the nifty way it channeled the good parts of the '80s/'90s indie rock scene like loud/soft dynamic shifts, murkily distorted guitars, and lazed-out vocals. Six years later, the band is still looking backward on the follow-up Transit Transit. This time out, the mood is decidedly more downbeat and the focus is more on creating an overall feeling where the songs blend together in a haze of somber vocals, layered guitars, and rolling drums.
If what they say about patience is true, Autolux are amongst the most virtuous motherfuckers alive in Los Angeles. Two of its members served in Failure and Ednaswap- respectively, some dudes who had a cup of coffee in the Buzz Bin with "Stuck on You" after the post-Nevermind boom and the band who wrote and first recorded Natalie Imbruglia's "Torn". Drummer Carla Azar had what was feared to be a career-ending elbow injury in 2002 but a risky surgery and eight screws allowed her to get back on the skins. And yet, they're too hesitant to step on the gas and Transit Transit maintains a puzzling lack of urgency for an album so long in the works. You can get an occasional jolt from the steel-girder riffs of "Census" or "Audience No. 2", yet the tempo never gets past a slow boil.
Transit Transit is the second studio album by American alternative rock band Autolux, released on August 3, 2010, on TBD Records (USA) and ATP Recordings (outside of North America/Japan). Autolux produced Transit Transit themselves with guitarist/vocalist Greg Edwards serving as engineer. Most of the record was recorded at Space 23, the band's makeshift studio in their rehearsal room near downtown Los Angeles.

Autolux crawls through sophomore album Transit Transit, paring the exquisite agony of rush hour traffic with Lynchian surrealism. The finely tuned claustrophobia pays high dividends when released in shoegaze Audience No. 2 and Supertoys. The Los Angeles trio Autolux sound like a band out of time. Their first album from 2004, Future Perfect, should have been called Past Perfect for the nifty way it channeled the good parts of the '80s/'90s indie rock scene like loud/soft dynamic shifts, murkily distorted guitars, and lazed-out vocals. 80. Famed as scrupulous constructors, Los Angeles trio Autolux take their time to create a distinctive voice without any impulse of current.

The first single, Supertoys is kind of a gateway song from one album to another, since it’s more guitar-driven than the rest of the songs yet more mellow than most of the tracks on Future Perfect. For those wondering if Carla Azar left the groovy grooves for smoother rhythms, you will be extremely delighted with tracks such as Audience No. 2″ and Census. Really, it’s a drummer’s heaven.
This expansion of sound is also put together with the kind of meticulousness that makes ‘Transit Transit’ doubly compelling.
