Hawaiian delight!

The words ‘Hawaii’ and ‘Blues’ may seem odd in the same sentence but SLACKERS IN PARADISE puts that thought to rest. Halfway through the record I was on a beach with a cold drink, shaking my head to the moods created by MANGO SEASON and AOKEALOA. These tracks just hit you with the feel and keep you wanting more of that vibe. I simply loved WAIRAO UKELELE RAG, probably the most lighthearted merry making song I’ve heard. The guitar work is so crisp and smooth on HILO HANAKAHI too, but the one to steal hearts would definitely be HAMAKUA HALE with that ‘missing my love’ kind of aura it exudes right from the first note! A great taste of Hawaii!
