Lord Echo returns to unleash The Elder Statesman on 7-Inch

Following up the dynamo sophomore release that was 2013’s “Curiosities“, New Zealand’s Lord Echo returns to Bastard Jazz producing Kiwi trio The Elder Statesman comprised of twin brothers and Wellington fixtures Christopher (piano) and Daniel (double bass) Yeabsley, with Lord Echo himself on percussion and drums.

On the “A” side, Montreux Sunrise is mellow meander through a laidback early 70s souljazz vibes, while “Trans Alpine Express” picks things up on the B side with a deep, spiritual piano groove, upfront doublebass, and Echo’s percussion perfectly in the pocket.

A timeless gem of a 7-inch from Bastard Jazz, releasing our own namesake for once!
