KAM KAMA: The Tiled House: LP

I’ve probably listened to these six songs more than all my other review materials combined. It’s become my breakfast and bedtime record. It somehow manages to both get me psyched and calm me down. The cover of this LP is black and white checkers, so you can’t blame me for expecting ska, which I adore, but what blasted out of my speakers was even better. I can’t quite pigeonhole their sound, which is such a rare treat. I’d say it’s almost post punk, reminiscent of Joy Division or Echo & The Bunnymen, but with a real modern Whitest Boy Alive vibe. This is such a great batch of songs; I get excited just writing this review, hoping someone will actually check them out. I’m grateful for this music and its ability to make me dance around my kitchen or doze off as I cuddle with my wife.
