Cool Out Sun - Oui Play     Blues/Roots, Hip Hop, African, World 12/10/2018
Cool Out Sun were quickly labelled a "super group," Composed of Lamine Sonko, Sensible J, N'fa Jones and Nui Moon, they had airwaves shook. This is Cool Out Sun.
The playful melody invites dance floor theatrics whilst the lyrical content falls nothing short of N’fa Jones’ iconic rhythmic flow; Oui Play is an ode to the imagination. An invitation to let go of the daily grind, freedom to escape the sinister shadows that cast over hearts and minds and be free in the notion of peace, love and unity.

This track is more soul-music than Smith's usual singer-songwriter style.

Relentlessly steaming forward like a stolen train, Mary Lou is a fantastical crimson-soaked murder blues number and is
Dan Howls at his foot-stomping best. Needing nothing more than a guitar and a tambourine around it, his voice drives a grim narrative of death and dirty deeds, accompanied beautifully by the bittersweet vocals of Julia Weller.
