Random Lounge Jazz Memories: The Stepkids - "Get Lucky" (Daft Punk & Pharrell)

"We had to do this song... Only way to pay tribute to Daft Punk, Pharrell, and Nile Rodgers in one fell swoop. Enjoy y'all," The Stepkids Tweeted Tuesday morning; Diehard Daft Punk fan or not, I suggest you take a break from that Random Access Memories "leak" for a sec. and check this one out, my friends! Unlike Thomas Bangalter & Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo's Electro-Funk-tinged original, The Stepkids have successfully infused "Get Lucky" with a sort of cheese-less Lounge Jazz vibe. The Stepkids are signed to genre-blending Indie Hip-Hop label Stones Throw and it's 3 extremely talented multi-instrumentalist members -- Dan Edinberg, Jeff Gitelman & Tim Walsh -- have separately worked with everyone from Alicia Keys to 50 Cent. Since inking a deal with Stones Throw a few years ago, the band has released The Stepkids (including "Legend In My Own Mind"), Sweet Salvation EP, and a forthcoming album that's been dubbed Troubadour. "Get Lucky" isn't only a Funky Daft Punk re-make... But the second cover in what's starting to look like a weekly video series, which was spearheaded last week with Justin Timberlake's comeback single, "Suit & Tie." "The band is finishing their new album Troubadour, for release on Stones Throw in Fall 2013."
