I've decided I'm just going to have to buy the Nesian Mystik CD. They've been around a little while, and one of their songs even features on a Coke ad on television. I heard a song of theirs while I was driving to work this morning, and it was about the first thing to put a smile on my face today.
It's a mixture of Pacific Island music and hip hop, all very accessible, danceable and kinda irresistable. It's the first bit of music I've shown interest in since my discovery of Bach's cello music about four years ago. And to think that once I used to spend all my money on records...(I was fifteen and mad about Jackson Browne and New Zealand Dunedin bands).
