It’s always a strange thing when you discover music that you think is awesome only to find that when you go away to check on what the artist is up to at the moment, you discover their death that happened several years before, as is the case for the lead singer of this band. This track comes from the bands self-titled post-homously released album which is full of feel-good tracks with a funky, sun-drenched sound. This particular track is my favourite from the album and shares similar traits to Griffith Project’s track “First Train Stop” which I posted about here. It has a great reggae, laid-back groove fitting for the sound of a late summer afternoon. Clocking in at just over 3 minutes long, this is something to quickly get you out of the winter blues I’m experiencing in the UK right now. Enjoy.

I randomly came across this artist when trawling through a torrent site and was intrigued when I found that this one track featured three artists I’ve already done posts about on this blog (Jack Johnson, Missy Higgins and Wyclef Jean of the Fugees) mashed up into a single, surprisingly cohesive song. The artist, who is a bedroom-producer currently still studying for a career in music production, definitely shows flair and promise in these mash-up tracks he’s created. He’s released 3 albums (this taken from the most recent and brilliantly titled “Appetite for Reconstruction”) and can all be downloaded from his multiply site account here. This particular track I’m sharing is my favourite, featuring the songs “‘Taylor”, “Scar” and “No Woman No Cry” (with Men at Work’s “Down Under” thrown in at the end for good measure). The mix isn’t completely polished but I feel that this only adds to the tracks charm. It carries an upbeat and good natured feeling, particularly of Missy Higgin’s “Scar”, right through to the end.
