I love the cover of this album, but I have never heard of Matisyahu! As a mom to two teenagers, music plays a big part in our household. We all have our favorite bands, but we love discovering new talent. This is Matisyahu's fourth album - I don't know how I have missed this! - and it is a stunner!
From reggae to rap to pop, each song has a beat and sound of it's own that will have you toe-tappin and hip-boppin' in no time. My family's favorites? My daughter likes the sound of "I Believe in Love", my son "Live Like A Warrior" and I love the song 'Sunshine'. It's been playing over and over in my truck. The songs on this album not only make you feel good, but have some inspiration that you can relate to at points in your own life. Music has a tendency to do that for me. Here's the video for 'Sunshine', so you can hear and see what I'm talking about.
A definite new favorite in our household this summer. A great sound that I can't seem to get enough of!
From Amazon - Matisyahu blasts off with his 4th album Spark Seeker, produced by Kool Kojack (Nicki Minaj, Travis Barker, Ke$ha). This bold new studio album finds the one-of-a-kind vocalist and songwriter exploring uncharted territory with help from an expansive cast of collaborators. My musical tastes are all over the board, he says in reference to a record that mixes ancient traditional sounds with futuristic electro beats, rapping with singing, songs of the spirit with songs of the body. My music is about searching out inspiration wherever it lies. This album is about seeking that spark within.
Since first emerging on the international stage in 2005, Matisyahu has established a reputation for transcending boundaries- from the stripped-down roots reggae of the gold-certified Live at Stubb s to the trippy ministrations of the Grammy nominated Youth to the polished pop eclecticism of Light. Then, in 2010, he returned to the venerable Austin venue that introduced him for Live at Stubb s, Vol. II, demonstrating that all of his travels had only strengthened his connection to his musical bedrock. Selling over 2 million albums worldwide, it was a whirlwind half-decade journey, one that earned Matisyahu a place in pop culture at large.
Matisyahu 'Spark Seeker' will be released on July 17, 2012. You can Pre-order Here
