Coming Soon to the Moore!
You remember this guy? He came through town last year. He's the Hasid who sings reggae tunes about religious devotion. Yeah, it's every bit as terrible as you can imagine. Me, after listening to Joanna Newsom sing on the YouTube, I have been to the edge. He's not as bad as that. It's just that pop music is all about conciseness and when you have a guy singing about the "foundation of the essence of the being," it sounds kind of clunky and contrived. But I've gotta hand it to him, he does fake reggae better than most. But he's still pretty terrible.
