Lido Pimienta’s Color EP is out on sale through her MySpace, she’s already one of the year’s breakthroughs but we can tell you the new songs are as thrilling as “La Rata” and “Mueve.” While she doesn't have a label to rely on, nothing is holding her back, she’s applying her many talents into the release of her album; like hand-making the album's gorgeous artwork and improvising a video. Her webcam videos have revealed her energetic personality; when she’s not exposing her son Lucian to wonderful music (here), she’s making a bunch of Canadian hipsters dance to Rita Indiana’s “La Hora de Volve" (here).
It doesn’t come as a surprise that the video for her first single “Mueve” is the bubbliest thing we’ve seen this year. It was directed by Los Edisons, two Colombian directors who also reside in Canada. The video is pretty simple, but engaging from beginning to end. While watching this I can only ask myself why I’ve never shown such vivacity, she is alive! “Solo tu alma te salva, y la musica te calma y te sana.”
