One of the real treats of running a blog is that from time to time, I receive great new music in my inbox. That's how I found out about Easy Star All-Stars' new album Thrillah, a reggae tribute to The King of Pop's masterpiece. The All-Stars are the musical collective behind Easy Star Records' hugely successful line of reggae tribute albums including Dub Side of the Moon, Radiodread, and Easy Star's Lonely Hearts Dub Band. I don't think it's possible to listen to this music without having it bring a smile to your face. Check it out:
You can also download a sample song from the album, Human Nature.
The All-Stars are currently on tour to promote the album and they are stopping at the Blind Pig on Tuesday to play a show with the Aggrolites. Tickets are $18 if you buy them at the Pig or $20.84 online for the convenience of internet shopping. Doors open at 8 pm for this all ages show.
