Melbourne-by-way-of-Brooklyn duo Zoe Randell and Steve Hassett, also known as Luluc, will be releasing Passerby, their new album of delicate and delicious acoustic songcraft, on July 15 via new label home Sub Pop. Clearly Randell and Hassett are not ones to be rushed: the new project follows up their critically adored 2008 debut album Dear Hamlyn, named for Randell's late father. Since then, Luluc (pronounced Loo-LUKE) have found some supportive fans like Lucinda Williams and Joe Boyd, the original producer for Brti-folk legend Nick Drake who recruited the pair for last year's Drake tribute album. Another admirer, Aaron Dessner of The National, stepped in to co-produce and contribute instrumentally to the songs that became Passenger. "It was kind of remarkable how well Aaron was able to fit in," says Randell. "He really felt like part of our creative brain.” Click through to stream Luluc's version of Nick Drake's "Fly."
