I just got back from seeing SoCalled (Josh Dolgin) live in Winnipeg, which, it turns out, his is hometown (so half the audience was his extended family, mostly in their 60s and up - which in the context of his music is not a terrible thing).
It was one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to. Tied probably with the first time I saw Pearl Jam. I was dancing, like, actually dancing. And if you know me, you’ll be aware how strange that is. Seriously, it was freaking amazing.
SoCalled is totally nuts, but in the best way possible. It doesn’t matter what kind of music you like, SoCalled has something for you. Klezmer, funk, hip-hop, electronic, rock, folk, etc, etc. <3
The track above is off his new album, Sleepover. It’s a different style from his old ones. While still Klezmer infused, it’s much smoother. This song, Richi is admittedly one of the more Klezmer-heavy of the songs on this album. If you want something more ‘modern’, try Kid Again or UNLVD.
Seriously folks, he’s amazing.
