An ode to 90’s R&B, Amerigo Gazaway and Xiomara’s “1990” album is a nostalgic love letter to an era that redefined the genre. Known for his work reinterpreting classics, Gazaway (most recently tapped by the Miles Davis estate for his work on the lost Rubberband sessions), steps out of his role as a remixer and gives Bay Area artist, Xiomara, the bedrock for her voice to flourish.
With her breakout 2016 release “Seven Nineteen,” Xiomara’s soulful debut took home top rankings in SF Weekly’s “5 Best Bay Area Albums of 2016” list and led to guest spots on releases from Son Little, Blu, and Oh No to name a few. Leaning heavy on Xiomara’s songwriting and arrangement chops, the newly formed duo spent the last year crafting a collaboration as original as it is reminiscent.
Death would be sweet relief
Can’t get you out of my head
As contradictory as it seems
You won’t be hard to forget
Pinching me out of a dream
You are my only regret
For fear of regression
I’m kickin you out of my bed
Go away don’t come back tomorrow
This ain’t the path that I’m s’posed to follow
Go ahead and get thee gone
Keep away with your indecision
I told you I love you
You s’posed to listen
What’s a girl to do but sing the blues?
You said that I was the one
Not with your lips, with your eyes
I’m getting out of here, cause you could be
My sweet demise
You made it hard to believe (You don’t be-lieve)
You don’t believe in my heart
Don’t come chasin’ after me, ringin’
That Old Alarm
