And though Lucky Diaz’s 15 minute debut EP is more than a single “bite” of songs, this short collection of excellent music has us all eager for what he’ll put together next.
Lucky Diaz’s downloadable EP, Luckiest Adventure, kicks offf with a retro bass line in the danceable Blue Bear, a song about a big ol’ bear who is soooooo hunnnngry. The bear’s empty-belly pleas weave in and out of this super-fun song featuring handclaps, an infectious chorus and Lucky Diaz’s mellow, cool voice.
Explorer takes the tempo down a notch with a lovely acoustic piece about a child’s insatiable curiosity. And I love that the one song about a firefighter is about a girl and includes backup singers that sound like they are straight out of a 50’s tune.
Even when covering the sung-to-death-in-our-household This Old Man, this LA musician voice turns a nursery rhyme into a mellow pop gem that gets just silly enough to make you remember that this one is for the kids. Worth a download for sure. -Christina
