East of the River Hudson: Tiombe Lockhart x Augustus Pablo

February 14, 2012

Words by Jesse Serwerโ€”

Tiombe Lockhart is smitten. With some lucky fellow, and the music of Augustus Pablo. Or maybe that dude is the departed Augustus himself. Alls we know is that Lockhart, of Brooklyn art-funk trio Cubic Zirconia, must be in love, because we’re not used to such direct emotional outpouring from the vocalist behindย  “Fuck Work” and “Hoes Come Out At Night.”

A Valentine’s Day gift to her fans, Tiombe’s Augustus & Me is a free, three-song EP (her first solo offering since 2007) of her singingโ€”or, in the case of the one called “And All The Walls Fall,” climaxingโ€”over vintage Pablo tracks, like the melodica master’s dub version of Jacob Miller’s “Baby I Love You So.” Preview the tunes below, or just gwaan and download it here:
