Cover story: Lucky Soul



Lucky Soul rocks the most deluxe artwork. It all looks so pretty on this blog, doesn't it?Above is the cover for the full-length album and below is the forthcoming single. I like the use of the tie shape logo and the way the guys always wear their natty bankrobber suits, while Ali features various vintage dresses in bright colors. The backdrop is always faded glamour. Now they just need to whip up some cool cocktail napkins to hand out as souvenirs at the shows...



The Great Unwanted album is due on April 9, with this 13 song tracklist: Add Your Light to Mine, Baby; One Kiss Don’t Make a Summer; Struck Dumb; Lips are Unhappy; My Darling, Anything; Get Outta Town!; The Great Unwanted; Baby I’m Broke; My Brittle Heart; Ain’t Never Been Cool; The Towering Inferno; It’s Yours; The Last Song.

For more on the band, read this interview. The new single is Add Your Light to Mine, Baby (video), due March 19. But first, the phenomenal title track...

Noi-ce! I'm sorta getting a Parallel Lines /Blondie vibe with the dudes all dressed alike. Not like that's bad or anything... :)

another great song from them! this music is totally 'uncool' so I will not be able to listen to them at work, but still great for the headphones.

TORR! That is a backhanded compliment! What is uncool here? For your "set", Nelly Furtado or Nickelback might be uncool, but what is it about Lucky Soul that makes them uncool? I don't get it at all. Too retro for you?

Whatever, they're considered cool in London if not LA.

no, no, I really like 'em, I'm just saying that if I played something like that outloud here at FILTER I would be laughed out of the room. It doesn't sound enough like Dr. Dog and that other u.s.-indie-bullshit for these folks :-)

torr, how is lucky soul too uncool for FILTER? this is the same magazine that had a (comparatively) unfounded obsession with rilo kiley. I've stopped buying it recently for precisely the reason you outlined, the "US indie bullshit". spoon is just overplayed, the magazine used to be a lot more uk aligned, but since they started championing that awful band silversun pickups i've totally given up. you would do well to introduce some lucky soul to their diet.
