Cold Specks – Fool’s Paradise

We’re all here for this blurring of lines between borders in music. Cold Specks has always been ahead of that, using her Somali heritage to create wondrous worlds of alt-soul. On Fool’s Paradise – the title track from Ladan Hussein’s new album – she does that better than ever. Using the Somali idiom “kala garo naftaada iyo laftaada” (“understand the difference between your bones and your soul”) she is appropriately enough more soulful than ever, weaving a rich tapestry with strings, tender production, and that exceptional voice.
