Premiere: Listen to Lust Fund’s ‘Split’ EP out on The Umbrella

Williamsburg. A landscape in constant transition. What was once a derelict wasteland shared by starving artists and the Hasidim, is now a luxury playground for the inherently rich.

The Lust Fund is flush, and whether bull or bear, it grows steadily. The passion project of Tom Snares and Ariel Black, Lust Fund came about not of desire, but of necessity.

This Split EP is the first release of Lust Fund on The Umbrella. Although a group effort, it contains two solo tracks from each member.
