    Dirty Heads
    Cabin by the Sea
    Release Date: 6/19/2012

    http://www.dirtyheads.com/
    Dirty Heads Cabin by the Sea CoverI usually shy away from album reviews but when I opened the FedEx package on my doorstep and found the new Dirty Heads album complete with promotional rolling papers presumably to accompany the album, I decided to take a second look because obviously this was intended to take my worries away and make everyone feel great.

    In 2008 The Dirty Heads splashed onto the music scene with their debut album Any Port in a Storm, this year, on June 19, 2012, they will follow up with their long-awaited album Cabin by the Sea. Cabin is a true master class that sticks to the So-Cal alternative rocker vibe that The Dirty Heads are known for. When popping the disc in the dash of the car the first chord of “Arrival instantly enthralls you and throws you into the cabin by the sea with a group of friends enjoying life the way it was intended to be. The song that really struck a chord with me was “Spread Too Thin” because I think everyone can relate to being pulled in many directions every day and wanting to just slow down  for a minute and this album allows you to take a break and do just that. Cabin is the perfect summer album; it ranges from that summery feel-good reggae like the song “Your Love,” to the hip-hop vibe in “Smoke Rings,” and some poppy acoustic in the title song Cabin by the Sea, which is perfect for the sunny summer.

    I personally love Cabin by the Sea, every time I listen to this album it takes me away from the daily grind and monotony. There are many collaborations in this album with the likes of features collaborations with Matisyahu, Del the Funky Homosapien, Rome, and Ky-ManiMarley. One of the coolest parts of this album is the DVD that came in the package. The DVD takes you behind the scenes in the process of the day-to-day for the two week recording process at Sonic Ranch Studios in Texas. Cabin by the Sea is a must have for the summer and it hits the shelves on June 19.

    Free Download of I’ll Be Waiting by Michael Franti

    To celebrate the release of his new single, “I’ll Be Waiting,” Michael Franti is offering fans the opportunity to download it for FREE. Head toMichaelFranti.com or Facebook.com/MichaelFranti to download. You can also check out the powerful lyrics of “I’ll Be Waiting”  (Radio Edit Mix) in a brand new lyric video.

    “I’ll Be Waiting” has special meaning to Franti who describes it as “an epic and vast song about intensely personal experiences.” Below are Franti’s personal thoughts on the song and what it means to him.

    “At its core it is a love song, but not in the classic sense of the phrase.

    It is a song of searching, failure, growth and healing.

    It is a love song between a friend who is addicted to heroin and his lover who is desperately waiting for him to clean up.

    It is a love song for a single mother who has just seen her teenage daughter run away to the city, only to come home pregnant and alone.

    It is a love song  for an over-demanding father who’s son has gone off to war only to come home broken with scars inside and out.

    It is a love song for a bus driver who spends his whole day helping others only to come home to his wife who is battling cancer.

    It is a love song for a child who is bullied at school and one day snaps and is now calling his mother from juvenile detention.

    It is a song about leaving home and searching for ourselves outside of our “selves” in the material world.

    Buying the right car to make us look important, the right jeans to make us slimmer, the right friends to make us more special, the right drugs to make us more confident, the right lover to fix that part of us that is empty.

    Inevitably all these things fail and as we fall on our faces we come to discover those that we rebelled against the most, were the people who had faith in us even when we were at our worst…”Whenever you call me, whenever you need me, wherever you wander, until you see me, I’ll be Waiting, waiting for you…”   With open arms to catch us, hold us, heal us… even when we think we are not worthy of it.”
