Zaid - The 505 EP
Albuquerque, New Mexico based Zaid brings the mystique of the desert to Viva Recordings with The 505 EP. You can definitely feel the spirit of the Southwest come alive all throughout this spectacular 6 track journey.
From the onset, the jazz vibes on 24 Hours elicit images of a smoke filled saloon on the outskirts of town. Dirty Thoughts is a sensual number, with far off horns and sultry spoken word. Guitars strum out a call to action on the groove based Social Peterz. A high desert trip wouldn’t be complete without a psychedelic element, and It Ticklestakes you straight there with a winding acid excursion. One Day finds us in a deep spirit realm, wandering the sands with our own deep thoughts. Lonely Heart closes the EP out with a somber spoken word number on a deeper and darker mood. The 505 EP is the perfect road trip soundtrack, and one that will stir up thoughts and conjure images. Can you feel it?
