Just in time for the holiday,
we’re proud to debut this quick interlude from the one & only Tiombe Lockhart.
Think of it as a stolen kiss in a rainy phonebooth,
or to be more Tiombe-esque –
maybe a quickie in the backseat of a space cab.
Still riding the high from Cubic Zirconia‘s fourth-quarter release, Follow Your Heart,
Tiombe steps aside for a quick breath w/ this -
her first solo offering since 2007′s self-released Queen Of Doom EP.
Coming in under 10 minutes
but already proving to be infinitely longer in replay value,
Augustus & Me plays like a somewhat trippy, lo-fi love letter -
one that was crafted at home over some riddims by dub master, Augustus Pablo.
From pillowy whispers to an unbridled roar,
in classic Tiombe fashion,
the EP bleeds & bruises just as much as it eases & swoons -
moving thru the stages of blind optimism,
to a worry-filled devotion,
& ending w/ a sludgy, debris-filled closer
that could either be the breakdown or the climax (or both) -
either way, it begs for “a little more…”
& leaves us feeling just the same.
You can stream all three songs
