This Is Our Jam: Blood Diamonds, “Lasting Love”

The gauzy palpitations of “Lasting Love” seem made with the hours between 2 and 6 a.m. in mind—that time between going out and passing out that is equally sensuous and lurid. Blood Diamonds wraps the track in a velour blanket that tempers clipped vocals and drum machine claps that hang suspended in a glittery fog. This is music for an after-party where the only viable options are coming down or hooking up. Although the song is called "Lasting Love," the pleasures evoked have a dream-like evanescence, best to be experienced in the moment and forgotten by the morning.
