Bossa Pop Reggae
From Hawaii to Seattle by way of San Francisco, the Dfillius group comes by this eclectic collection of styles honestly. Music for everyone else? The songs: Protect the World---post 9-11 anti war music to a happy beat (rejected due to controversial lyrical content in the Rock the Space II contest!) b/w a reggae take on Burt Bacharach's Windows of the World. I hope Burt would approve---is there a greater songwriter?! (No.) Nikola Tesla, an indie rock song biography about the one and only magnificent visionary/inventor/eccentric...he really did see beyond the horizon. Citizen of Disneyland should have been sung by Ukelele Ike AKA Jiminy Cricket---though Tommy Kirk, Ed Wynn and Annette would have been just fine. Happily Ever After plus (If I'm) Dreaming are romantic bossa novas with a dash of saudade and much love and respect for the masters: Jobim, Bonfa, Gilberto & Lyra. Followed by A Friend... as dark and edgy a bossa nova as you're likely to encounter. A tropical Caribbean Nature Boy with a hint of bossa, the pre modern pop of Sanctuary and Away, the pop reggae of You Stood By Me and the semi dubilicious Bossa Rock Reggae. A veritable potpourri of warm weather (and other) rhythms and crispy pop songwriting.
