The Stepkids – The Lottery

Stone Throw Records latest offering comes from the Connecticut three-piece The Stepkids. They’ve shared stage with the likes of Lauryn Hill, 50 Cent and Alicia Keys, and their boundary-pushing psychedelic soul has been compared to Thundercat and Janelle Monáe.

Their upcoming sophomore album Troubadour is led by “The Lottery”, a song deeply rooted in the 70’s, fusing the psychedelic funk of Roy Ayers with Steely Dan’s blue-eyed soul. It feels oddly out of place with the times, but that’s what makes it all the more fascinating.
