Long Island native Zuli is bringing his psych tinged indie pop to the Eastside tonight for a suicide prevention benefit at the Hi Hat alongside WELFAIR, Twin Seas, Amindi K. Fro$t, Katzu Oso. The upcoming full length release On Human Freakout Mountain, will be out October 20 via Swoon City for your listening pleasure. If you don’t live in LA, no sweat, they have their album release show in NYC, October 28th at the Murmrr Ballroom in Brooklyn. Give the track “Blaze” a spin and then head over to Highland Park and check Zuli out for yourself.
