I WEAR THIS BECAUSE LIFE IS WAR BY L.A. SALAMI

Lookman Adekunle Salami, L.A to his mates and the record-buying public - first picked up a guitar at the age of 21. You wouldn't know. Eight years on and his debut album is about to hit the streets.
An appreciation of 1960s and '70s blues and a sharp lyrical eye combine to make L.A's music a constant delight. The double-A 7" features Day To Day and I Wear This Because Life Is War which you can stream below. L.A describes it as "just a simple blues song, born of the idea of wanting to shout over an audience in an open mic night that isn’t listening to you – which is life, isn’t it?" As if anything about it's creation was in any way simple.

The album Dancing With Bad Grammar is out on August 26. Order it from our friends at Normal Records. Find L.A on twitter @lasalami
