My new musical favorite:

Forrest Day

He’s amazing! 

“The rhythms of hip-hop provide a placemat for nervously melodic splendor and a melting pot of genres.  What are we to call this compellingly oddball mélange of rock, rap, jazz, reggae, and other influences, all in sway to some of the most mirthfully self-conscious streams of consciousness you’ve ever heard? We could call it attention-deficit-disorder rock. Or maybe we should just call it Forrest Day, the Bay-area bandleader who’s releasing his self-titled full-length debut on the Ninth Street Opus label.”

I listen to WNYU radio and in the morning, they host Fordham University’s WFUV’s alternative rock programming in the morning and it gets me all the way from Yonkers, NY to SUNY Purchase college with a smile on my face.

The morning I first heard Forrest Day… Whooooooooooo… instantly in love.  They played “Hyperactive” and I certainly was by the time the song was over!
