“All People”

August 7, 2013

The new Michael Franti and Spearhead album, “All People,” is yet another great collection of music from one of my favorites in a long line of genre defying awesome haired guys.  It starts out really strong with it’s title track, which encompasses an idealistic passionate feeling for all of the human race while also feeling like a personal love song.  11:59, is a great thought of a life seeking meaning, and the latest radio hit, I’m Alive, is a triumphant sunny day jam just rejoicing in the fact of being alive.  The rest of the album is still being explored by me, but it’s all good, a little bit of rap and reggae, pop radio hooks, and funky rock colliding into a great complete package, with amazing song writing  that holds a worldly vibe while also adopting a personal flavor, where a song about getting along with your global family may follow a song reminscing about forgotten times getting stoned with a lover that has come and gone and just existing.  Spearhead will always be remembered for this amazing duality. Pick up the disc or download it, and let the good times come.
