Michael Franti and Spearhead - The Sound of Sunshine
Michael Franti was the visionary behind, and voice of, Beatnigs, Disposable Heroes, and Spearhead. The Sound of Sunshine (not to be confused with the identically titled 1975 record by KC and the Sunshine Band) is Franti's seventh studio album under the Spearhead banner (add that to two solo records, live albums, inumerable collaborations, and the discographies of his previous bands and feel unproductive, my friends...).
Franti's styles have included industrial, hip-hop, rock, folk, and on and on the list goes. His lyrics are passionate, personal and political. Sound of Sunshine promises to be "bright, beautiful and often buoyant".
