Black Pumas blew up FAST. One minute you’re hearing about this cool new up-and-coming soul band from a friend, the next they’re featured on late night shows and sell out a multi-night stand at Stubb’s so fast that you can’t even score a ticket. Their debut album proves that their success is well deserved. Here's what our friends at Waterloo have to say about it:
"Does everything Adrian Quesada touch turn to gold? Was Eric Burton born a genius? Can anyone touch this lineup? Are the Black Pumas even from this era? This planet? To find out the answers to these questions and more, grab this Grammy nominated, self-titled debut (!) album... immediately.
Assembled at the intersection of Los Angeles and Austin, and built from the bones of rock solid tunes, bulletproof riffs and thumping, feel-it-in-your-veins soul for days, everything about Black Pumas reverberates through your body like that sweet and joyous hallelujah ache you get when you visit with a friend you haven’t seen for ages. You might not have even known that you’d missed them as much as you did, but now that they’re in front of you — damn, are they a sight for sore eyes.”
