Yes, I know, one album is ruling them all at this current point and time, but who says that your musical intake has to be limited? I mean, you can take a wee break from the worship alter of Sir D’Angelo, and give Lion Babe‘s new EP a spin or two? Okay, okay, maybe you can pocket the EP for later, but don’t leave it lingering for long as the New York-based duo are roaring loud and proud with their mighty little four-track EP that has been anticipation in the making.
Most of what is present we’ve already spun several times prior, as the duo’s steamy debut single, “Treat Me Like Fire,” and Childish Gambino-assisted “Jump Hi” are present. Yet you can nestle in the newness of “Don’t Break My Heart,” which practices the art of (Erykah) Baduizm, and replay the slow wine of “Jungle Lady” for a little somethin’ different. If you’re more of a wax collector, you’ll be in luck, as with your vinyl purchase of Lion Babe EP the hypnotic acoustic spin of “Little Dreamer” will be your reward.
We here at SBHQ have been smitten by the eclectic hip-soul that Jillian Hervey and Lucas Goodman have crafted for some time now, and if you haven’t fallen under their spell, then what are you waiting for? Cop the set via iTunes or stream on Spotify, and get bewitched.
