PICTURE THIS: The Ruby Suns + Painted Palms + Lucky Paul @ The Satellite, LA 2/12/13
When the weather in Los Angeles has been a bit on the nippy side, some sunny jams from down under are always welcome. Fresh kiwi electronic artist Lucky Paul helped us brush off the chills with layers rhythms and even some nice live-instrumental touches.
Last time we caught San Francisco’s Painted Palms was just over a year ago and we were struck by their firm grasp on subtlety. On Tuesday the trio reinforced what we noticed that night, bringing a smooth ambiance to the show.
Throughout the years The Ruby Suns have had a revolving lineup, which on this particular night featured a pared down trio. Frontman Ryan McPhun really caught our attention with his body-moving bass lines and subtle charisma.
