to mama, listen to papa
â™«Â IQRAM – Newborn
- Who:Â The Sri-Lanka born, Zimbabwe raised, NYC/Philly based Iqram. & friends.
- What:Â Afro pop, like Vampire Weekend, Paul Simon, Princeton
- Where: Philadelphia, PA + Facebook
- When: This lone single is out now.
- Why: While Vampire Weekend deals with the existential crisis of their sophomore slump I’m celebrating this Iqram guy and his elegantly straightforward take on the Paul Simon popularized afro-pop that Vampy once adapted so well. “Newborn” has horns, bongos, and is catchy as hell. I’m pretty happy.
