Zula are a young Brooklyn band with a West African name and tunes built around the songwriting of cousins Henry and Nate Terepka. Exploring psychedelic sounds with a heavy dose of delay, their songs are pleasingly disjointed, experimental pop jams that makes clever use of groove and melody -- not to mention a lot of really weird sounds. What it all adds up to is a deliciously unpredictable blend of jazz, rock, pop, electronica, and ambient bits and pieces, strung together through whatever weird magic these guys possess.
DJ Wynn comments an insight from Louis C.K. on smartphones and connects it to new music from Clark. He also shares new cuts from Mum, Zula, and Dr. Dog.
DJ Wynn highlights two NY bands you should become friendly with, The So So Glos and Zula, and he also spins new music from Bill Callahan, Jonathan Rado (of Foxygen), and Islands.
