Track of the Day..."Give Love Back" from Californiaman

“Give Love Back”

Listen to "Give Love Back” MP3

Inspired by the late 70's and early 80's sounds of artists such as Steely Dan, Robert Palmer, and Phil Collins, Stockholm's Californiaman (solo project of Joel Igor Hammad Magnusson of Me and My Army) creates music that is "fitting for both lovers, condors and cabriolets." 

The track “Give Love Back” serves this up in spades.  Head over to Soundcloud and the Californiaman YouTube page to hear other tracks, including the track “Drums Don’t Play Themselves”
