With a digital presence as sparse as their ethereal R&B, Project Maldonado are days away from being the next big thing. You heard it here first…after I heard it on Earmilk. Their debut EP, and its enticingly stellar first track “Seraphim”, is a testament to meticulously crafted rhythm and blues. Parts Citizen Cope, parts Damian Marley, parts something else indescribably soulful.
Little internet birdies are chirping that this might be the work of English musician Liam Bailey, but I am basing that purely on hearsay, so take that with a couple spoonfuls of salt. In the meantime, get lost in their mixed-media website and stream their debut EP on Soundcloud.
