Zambian singer and songwriter Lumba recently dropped her new five track acoustic EP entitled “Bedroom Blues”. Lumba is an artist who is new to my ears – thank you Holstar)
– and I must say she put together a great collection of songs that are composed of real, honest, sad energy with an impactful vibrance that is exuded in her often sultry and beautiful vocals. According to Lumba, the EP was recorded in her bedroom when she was feeling blue, however I think the overall sound has a more forgiving tone regarding the joys and pitfalls of love. One of the stand out tracks on “Bedroom Blues” is “Curl My Toes”. The track is a beautiful and simplistic song about intimate desire, but the first thing a listener will notice is the confident and loving flex that Lumba uses in her vocals to ease on into the track by singing “Currrrrl my toes ” which will encapsulates
your ears sort of like the intro to Smokey Robinson’s “Cruising”. “Bedroom Blues” definitely careesses the heart – broken or not.
Lumba’s “Bedroom Blues” EP is now available on your favorite streaming platform.
“Love Like Paris” is the latest single by Canada’s (by way of Zimbabwe, Belgium, and Brazil) Prometheus The Titan which was released earlier this month. Per his PR team, Prometheus is a trap/trapsoul fusion artist and his “Love Like Paris” is a pleasurable mix of upbeat tones and acoustic instrumentation. Lately, my ears haven’t strayed too far away from the hip hop genre thus, ”Love Like Paris” has certainly broken the monotony for me. Prometheus is also part of the Vancouver collective of artists known as the Unusual Suspects. Check out the track below and enjoy!
Released in 2012, “Our Time Has Come” is a throwback spoken word piece that was released on “The Naturals” by the group Ladder to the Sun (Andy O’Connor, John O’Conner, and UniverSouLove). The track is available on all streaming platforms. Enjoy!
