Live At Stubb's Vol. 2 CD

Born Matthew Miller, Matisyahu initially seemed a novelty: a Lubavitch Hasidic Jew rapping and singing over a reggae groove.  Except it became clear under further inspection that his music was not a novelty, but a careful construction of the various elements that had influenced the young man as much as his religion.  His first volume of recordings from a Texas bar, Live At Stubb's, helped cement his reputation and now six years later Matisyahu returns with a new backing group, the Dub Trio, to create the sharpest, loosest, most powerful Matisyahu release to date.  There's a brilliant haze falling over Mist Rising, an electronica-tinge to Darkness Into Light and a trippy, experimental taste to Youth.  The great sensitivity he brings to I Will Be Light could substitute for much lite-FM balladry.  One Day continues Matisyahu's pacifist views as he imagines a day with no more war. His voice is in tremendous form and the new band adds a vibrant edge to every tune. - itunes
