LuLu Fall & James Theory
The ultimate End of Summer collection. A true "Must Have"
My social media game is horrible people. I’m probably the worst on the team at it. But as I was perusing our Twitter page I came across a tweet from Senegalese/Cameroonian artist Lulu Fall, requesting for us to check her out. I usually don’t get involved (it’s the introvert in me), but for some reason I felt inclined to actually check her out. I’m so happy I did. Lulu Fall is simply breathtaking. I spent a few hours marveling in her vibrant vocal abilities and I’m still a little shellshock, better yet overcome with endorphins because her voice is just that damn good! She recently teamed up with producer/arranger/composer James Theory to drop one of the hottest EPs discovered this year, the incomparable Heal: Part 1.
So I visit Lulu’s webpage as she suggested in the tweet. I found her music play then pressed play. That’s when the magic happened. My jaw dropped and all I could say was DAMN!!! I always have something to say, but I found myself speechless when I heard Lulu’s luscious tone. Yeah, she’s just that awesome. Heal is only five tracks deep, but it strikes deep and makes a quick and lasting impact. It’s hard to pick a favorite record from the pack because they are all so good. But if forced to make a choice, I’d go with the smooth and jazzy sounds of “No Better”. The songwriting is champion, the theme brought a smirk to my face and the infectious horns, keys and drums will connect with your soul in such an alluring way. I can’t front, I think I just experienced my first eargasm since hearing Public Enemy Number One for the first time.
Like my old man used to say, “If I tell you that an elephant is heavy, don’t go looking for a scale.” And when I tell you that Lulu Fall and James Theory’s Heal straight fire, trust me, it’s fire. I’ve heard a lot of great music thus far this year, but nothing compares to this timeless classic. Lulu and James have created a piece that people will be talking about for decades to come and I’m glad I had a chance to review it while it’s still fresh out of the oven. You have to cop this EP. Head over to their webpage for more music, news and info. You can thank me later.
