Published Jul 09, 2009While the forthcoming Umsindo will ostensibly be Georgia Anne Muldrow's official sophomore release since 2006's Olesi: Fragments of an Earth on Stones Throw, she's actually been very busy with a flurry of projects over the past few years. She popped up on Erykah Badu's New Amerykah: 4th World War as well as a collaborative record with partner Dudley Perkins and her own "Ms. One" compilation showcasing her production skills earlier this year, not to mention Mos Def's The Ecstatic where he reworked her track "Roses."
"E.S.P." the first track to surface from Umsindo (meaning "sound" in Zulu), hints that Muldrow's endearingly scattershot vocal and production style may be settling down a little. A tribute to her partner Perkins' daughter, sonically and topically it admirably balances the past and the present.
