Cumbia kings LA LOM have announced plans to release their self-titled debut album on August 9th via Verve Records.

Comprised of native Angelenos Zac Sokolow (guitar), Jake Faulkner (bass), and Nicholas Baker (drums/percussion), the instrumental trio, whose name is an acronym for Los Angeles League of Musicians, has gained popularity with its fusion of Cumbia, Peruvian Chicha, Afro-Cuban jazz, Bakersfield Country, traditional folk music, and Americana. After building a buzz in L.A. playing five nights a week at the historic Roosevelt Hotel on Hollywood Boulevard, they began cutting singles and released their first EP in 2022. The band has generated millions of views on social media and is about to kick off a run of tour dates with Vampire Weekend. They will make their festival debuts at Newport Folk and Pitchfork London later this this year.

Along with the album announcement, LA LOM shared the first single from their debut LP, “Danza de LA LOM”, along with a music video made in the same style as the band’s viral social media content.

“The song in a lot of ways is our homage to the Cumbia and Chicha from Peru,” said Sokolow. “Bands like Los Mirlos, Los Shapis, Los Destellos, Los Wembler’s de Iquitos, and others have been a huge influence on us and the music we make. Particularly in the way they use the biting twangy guitar to lead the melody of the song. When we started out playing in bars full of dancers around Los Angeles, covers from the great Chicha and Cumbia bands of Peru were a big part of our repertoire. We knew we wanted to have our own ‘Danza de LA LOM,’ and this song gets people dancing as well as any song we have ever covered.”
