Latest from Blu drawn from his uploaded-and-since-withdrawn-from-Bandcamp Jesus album – initially cryptically credited to “B” before folks put “B” and “lu” together. (By popular demand the album will see an official release via Nature Sounds later this summer.) “Lucky,” which dawdles leisurely (some might argue aimlessly), may have some wondering what the hype is about. After a lengthy intro Blu rhymes a little, mumbles more than a little, and half-sings the praises of the ocean and sky over romantic strings that sound a little more distressed with each loop. Heard isolated from the rest of Jesus it’s a trickier sell; heard as part of the rest of the LP, though, it works within the engagingly oddball milieu (guess you’ll have to trust us on this).
