@@@ Hempolics Meet Macka B: One Law Fi Dem (N/A, 2022) I got to this collaboration between Macka B and the Hempolics via this week’s WRIR email. It’s an old school reggae track with Macka B’s classic energetic microphone bounce. Also it’s a political track as it rightly points out the hypocrisy of the law being applied differently to different folks. Sonically it’s a thick stew with horns, reggae ka-chunk guitar and tasty drumming. Have at it, Macka B is a machine for really high quality old school Caribbean music, check it out.
@@@ George Ezra: Green Green Grass ( , 2022) I see from the GooglePimpTube that this gent Ezra has had some bigly hits, but I don’t know diddly squat about him as I’m not particularly interested in mainstream music. Oh lord, I believe we are in for some mainstream white boy dancefloor banging. I am most definitely falling into this dude’s story halfway through as he’s described as a guitarist when you google his ass. There is a lot of janked clean guitar here but it’s a dance track and a shit one at that. I shouldn’t say that, it’s not to my taste, I can’t abide by this level of lyrical cliche as well as arrangement cliche. I shoulda realized something was up when I saw the title Green Green Grass as this is not a well manicured lawn for me. He’s got a Rick Astley flow that I don’t dig.
