ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Across the album’s ten tracks, Louis Atlas conjures a sound that is at once both classic and inventive. A consummate and experienced songwriter, Louis' full conviction to his words and melodies is on display here. He understands that much of the beauty in Reggae lies in the meditative rather than the immediate, and the tracks on the record revel in classic circular reggae jams that superbly complement his songs. And on a more subtle level, Lous also understands when to break out of the meditative rhythms -- whether with a blazing guitar solo, a melodic coo from a backing vocalist, or even just a short chuckle.

This combination of musical ebb and flow allows the tracks to breathe fluidly through complex emotional beats, as the tunes effortlessly travel from socially conscious political songs (“The Lunatics,” “The People Must Be Free”) and melancholic love songs (“Drifting Further Away From Me”) to steady, playful traditional Reggae tunes (“Coconut Dream”).

Yet even with its most simple and feel-good tracks (“Come Home To Me” and “Spin Your Head Around”), “Coconut Dream” feels inventive and inspired. The album’s rousing closer “The People Must Be Free” shares a lot of DNA with the canon of classic Reggae liberation anthems, but also finds a unique identity in a fuzzy, truly rock-and-roll lead guitar sound that’s more Black Keys than Bob Marley. If you listen closely, you can also hear the experimentation with some glitchy percussive drum accents.

“Coconut Dream” is filled with moments of jubilance and character, and flavored throughout with a constant joyful undercurrent. Louis’s passion, truth and belief in the power of Reggae music is on full display on “Coconut Dream.” It is a gift for the ears of every listener.
