It looks like Matisyahu, as I predicted, will continue to blow up and be a smash hit, and a well-deserved one, at that.
the following is a recent Rolling Stone write up on Matisyahu:
Matisyahu is blowin' up

this first song is VERY hot right now, if you don't listen to it, listen to it now, and you will immediately increase your coolness level:
Matisyahu - King Without a Crown (live) (MP3)
Matisyahu is a proud, motivated musician. I could be mistaken, but if I remember correctly, he has strong Jewish roots, and is a very purpose-driven, religious man. These are the kinds of people I respect most in life. He mixes his own style of singing with reggae and powerful lyrics. Very nice guitar work as well.
The High Dials - Soul in Lust (MP3)
The High Dials freaking rock hard, but they do it in a very melodic way. Think a happier Interpol.
