LUFF is a Brooklyn-based shoegaze / post-rock band. Their latest EP, "Maybe It's Just Sleeping" was released by the band on their own imprint Delicious Noise, in 2012. Written in the aftermath of the tragic losses of vocalist / guitarist
Sheila Sobolewski's mother to a fire and lead guitarist Robin Pickering's
step-mother to suicide, it’s a grievous love letter to the lost;
a clutch of disquieting, powerful tracks that cover the intense and universal post-grief process within an avant-indie melodic sensibility.
Originally founded by guitarist and vocalist Sheila Sobolewski as a guitar and cello duo, LUFF has grown into a four-piece rock outfit currently comprised of Sheila, Robin Pickering (Triple Creme) on guitar, Aleks Gylys (Serica Ux, Coulter) on drums, and Mike Hurst (Serica Ux, Coulter) on bass. LUFF’s music can be heard in several short films and documentaries, and Sheila and Robin scored the documentary Alternative High for Reel Works in 2010.
In 2007, LUFF released their first full length, Blanket Ice
