7/30/19: 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.
