Hezekiah Jones and the Mass Mind Malaise

Here’s a horn-heavy reggae-fueled track with a folky twist, from Philly’s Hezekiah Jones. Clearly not a band that will be limited by genre barriers, they swing wide, into a jazzy swing but almost klezmer-y place on the bridge here, before crashing back into a measured, ominous dub tempo. All this provides the perfect soundtrack for the deftly paranoid and oh-so-contemporary lyric. I love it.
