Lucky Paul : Elephant Island

Lucky Paul is a New Zealander by the way of Berlin that produces some spaced out psychedelic tunes, think Bullion meets Kindiness’ disco pop appeal. “Elephant Island” is out February 13 on somethinksounds. Be sure to catch Lucky Paul on tour this year as he fills in on drums in Feist’s touring band. Also be sure to check out a live 7 min improvised jam as Lucky Paul literally walks around his flat in Berlin sampling everything in his household.

Bonus: A tasteful re-work of the late and great Etta James.
