essential MP3s: a shout out to all of my Jewish friends - Matisyahu Update


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

originally posted 1/4/04

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.



much thanks to the rock and roll Master: D, from Grey Will Fade for:

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.

More blogs about MP3s.

Thanks for the shout out brother! And thanks for introducing me to Matisyahu! The King Without A Crown track is spot on. I have always loved reggae and don't listen to enough of it these days.
And gotta agree that Soul In Lust is also my top fav tune these days.
keep on rocking bro!
