Must listen: King Charles

Yet another brilliant singer/songwriter from London.  I don't know what took me so long to discover this album, I'm just glad I finally did.  I actually saw this guy open up for Mumford & Sons a couple of years ago at the Republic.  At the time he was just a one man acoustic set, and this album is anything but.  A great surprise.  And even better, Mumford & Sons even guest star on one of the tracks.  

This entire album is insanely good and's also insanely hard to put in a certain genre.  It's a brilliant mix of Vampire Weekend and folk music and Queen-like harmonies, all mixed with reggae beats, infectious riffs and classical undertones.  I don't know if that made any sense, so just listen.  Check out the whole album, there's not a bad song on it.  Looking forward to more of this guy to come.  

Watch this video and check out these songs, you'll be glad you did.  This guy is awesome.
