New hotness from New York homies Cubic Zirconia feat. our boy in South Afrika Mr. Ghost Bones himself Spoek Mathambo. I’ve known lead singer Tiombe Lockhart for a while now ever since me and Zack released a track of hers on Shadetek Records (back when that was still a going concern) and always loved her singing.
Now she’s teamed up with Nick Hook and the rest of the Cubic Zirconia fam to form this band project and they are killing it a lot. I got to play with them and hang with them at SXSW this year and they put on a killer show. Sort of house music with a band (for lack of a better term) really fun live and Tiombe is a super charismatic front-woman.
The video is on some ill Orson Welles one-shot auteur film making shit directed by Khalil Joseph and looks like a million bucks although knowing that Cubic are on a similar DIY go-for-self vibe as we are and releasing on their label I’m guessing it didn’t cost that. Download this minimix from their new Black and Blue EP and vote with your dollars to support good independent music on Tuesday June 15th when it drops.
Their release party is this Tuesday June 15th at Damon Dash Gallery (?!) with an art opening to boot. Flier:
This, their previous video ‘Josephine’ is crazy too.
