UK soulstress Yazmin Lacey returns with the third EP in her trilogy of releases following ‘Black Moon’ and ‘When The Sun Dips 90 Degrees’. Lacey describes this set as a collection of tunes centered around healing and includes contributions from a dazzling array of talent: Femi Koleoso and Ife Ogunjobi of Ezra Collective on drums and trumpet respectively, celebrated pianist Sarah Tandy on keys, and jazz protege Moses Boyd on drums and production. The cuts here are deeply personal with a lazy, laid back Badu-like calm to them, even if the subject matter is sometimes fraught. The gorgeous jazzy soul of ‘Morning Matters’ and the more jaunty ‘Lately’ (interlude) have a folky soul quality to them, the heavier ‘Morning Sunrise’ has a fuller production and a harder drive to it while the empowering ‘Not Today Mate’ wraps things up in emphatic fashion. Dial back to the opening track for a dreamy, slowly unfurling gem that speaks of being yourself, owning your own sh*t and running the day! Superb offering yet again. Don’t miss this.
