What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?




One of my favorite groups just popped up with a new single, an absolutely genius mashup of Smash Mouth’s “All Star” and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Can’t Stop” and “Californication.” I was going to share it with you, then I realized I’d never written about them! How did that happen?

Pomplamoose is the collaboration of Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn, and their sound is just heavenly. Watching their performance videos, I have noticed that Nataly Dawn seems to have something of a flat affect, but her voice has just the right amount of everything, no matter what her face is doing (or not doing). Maybe it’s a millennial thing, and I just don’t understand it. Who cares? Their music is just amazing.

You can follow the amazing Pomplamoose in their YouTube channel, and on their website, Instagram, and Facebook.

  1. I played this for my kids because they perpetually irritate each other on long car journeys or other circumstances of confinement by singing ‘All Star’ at each other. We all agreed that we liked their vibe but were not sure about the efficacy of this as a mash-up as ‘All Star’ was a bit too dominant and pushed the RHCP tracks to the peripheries too much. I guess we prefer mashups that are a bit more blended. I am going to check out their other tracks though as I do like the quality of her vocal.

  2. I know this isn’t anything like Chill Out, but something about her voice is so laidback it really reminds me of Chill Out. Excellent. 🙂

  3. I always recognize all the “oldies” in the mash ups/sampling these days. This one is all oldies, I love it! And I like her voice – it fits perfectly with her facial expressions. Or vice versa.
