Toronto based Bedouin Soundclash, who’s name derives from dub artist Badawi, released the excellent ska tinged LP Light the Horizon in 2010 – following a no holds bar attack on Canadian radio and UK advertising. Not to mention a string of festival gigs with artists such as Ben Harper and Coldplay.
The delectably produced “Brutal Hearts” finds the band exploring the stripped down pop of the 1960’s with fantastic results. Vocalist Jay Malinowski truly shines here with his effortless crooning, giving guest vocalist Coeur de Pirate a run for her sultry money, while the bossa nova influenced drum machine ticks off a fantastically memorable groove.
The album was released under the bands own label Pirates Blend Records.
