Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa - The Very Best

Legbamel Not-Pop

I came to Green Owl Records and their album “Esau Mwamwaya and Radioclit Are The Very Best” through a post at Quiet Color that included their re-make of Vampire Weekend’s Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa. I call it a re-make because they’ve completely replaced the vocals and made a song that remains fantastic but is very different from the original. At any rate, I discovered that you can listen to and download the entire album, all fifteen tracks together or individually, for free from the Green Owl website.

I won’t say that I enjoyed all of the tracks as much, but the songs on the whole were a refreshing change from the indie pap that’s creating so much hype these days. I particularly recommend the hip-hoppy Boyz, which includes a section to the tune of Do You Hear What I Hear?, and the energetic Birthday.

    There's so much music to explore that it's hard to find time to listen to it all.

    Can I ask you where you got the mp3 player? and how you link up the tunes? I started down that road but I can't seem to find mp3s to link to.

    Nice stuff--I'll check back in.

    I create widgets through Grooveshark for the player, where I can add one or a bunch of songs. If you own the song you want to add but don't find it there to embed, you can upload it without worrying that a bunch of people will download it for free.

    I know what you mean about "so much music, so little time". I listen to music while I'm doing other things, but I can't possibly keep up. I don't think anyone can.
