Bedouin Soundclash

Light the Horizon

★★★/5

This is the Toronto based group’s fourth full length album and it is very very good.  The mix of punk, reggae, rock and soul work together to create a full sound which leaves the listener satisfied.  The opening track “Mountain Top”  is so upbeat and light it borders on Vampire Weekend type cheesy, but it remains fun and serious enough to keep you listening.  By the third song, “May you Be the Road”  which is so personal and touching you’re hooked.  Coeur de pirate features on the song “Brutal Hearts”  which after listening to you’ll also feel would be a perfect song on any mix cd.  Give them a listen, I like them, it’s a serious kind of album, with hints of mournfulness and melancholy amidst the reggae.
