The self-titled debut album from Black Pumas,
the group that Adrian Quesada and Eric Burton assembled,
has become one of the year's most anticipated projects.
"Like Portishead 25 years ago,
it's a debut so perfectly realised
by the standards they've set themselves
that you wonder what could possibly come next."
said The Guardian in their Ones To Watch piece.
Quesada and Burton both return,
over and over,
to this almost mystical connection
they felt from the beginning.
It's this sense of common purpose,
of shared vision, that gives
Black Pumas its focus and power-and that points to great things ahead
