Bedouin Soundclash

I discovered Bedouin Soundclash last night. They perform a nice mix of reggae & rock that is surprisingly relaxing yet stimulating, just the thing for a Sunday morning. In fact I'm listening to their album Root Fire as I write this message.

I'm not sure how best to describe the quality of their tracks. 'Johnny Go To New York' reminds me on many levels of early Police tracks, probably because the devilvery of the song is similar to 'Roxeanne'. 'Back To The Matter' has a very famliar feel to it, but I can't put my finger on exactly why, but it does remind me a little of Madness. 'Santa Monica' has a bit of a Californian rock vibe going. 'Mandrake Root' seems to have been influenced by a lot of familiar stuff, but mostly Bob Marley. 'Natural Right' definately has 'Men at Work' 'Land Down Under' influences. I could go on but that would spoil the fun of listening to it for yourself.

If you are a little bored with what you have on your iPod or iRiver at the moment and are looking for something a little different yet a little familiar I heartily recommend giving Bedouin Soundclash's Root Fire a try.

'Root Fire' is a cool album, I've listened to it quite a few times now and really enjoyed it.

There are a few songs that I skip over now, but I generally speaking like the album.
