It's Time To Smile

This past weekend, I drove back home to Risingsun, OH for the town-wide garage sale weekend (a yearly family obligation). In addition to getting to see family, one of the things I enjoy about going home is having 2 hours in the car (each way) for listening to music. It's often a challenge to pick something to focus on, but I found myself listening to the new Xavier Rudd album "Koonyum Sun" both on the way there AND back.  I have quite a bit of stuff I should be listening to, so that's definitely a testament to his new album.

His last several albums have been supurb, and this one doesn't disappoint. Totally upbeat and positive, a breath of fresh air.  This is definitely a great album to have this summer.

Here are some stand-out tracks.  Listen to them more than once:

The last song I wanted to highlight is actually the music on this "Making of" video... It's Time to Smile. Make SURE you catch Xavier Rudd coming to the House of Blues on August 27, 2010. I saw him there back in 2007 and can personally attest to how wonderful this show will be.
