If you’re weary of the cold weather, take a trip down to the warmer climes with Sammy Johnson on this lighthearted EP. Johnson, whose mother is Australian and father Polynesian, truly sets the relaxation off right with “Fools Rush In,” all but pleading with the listener to, you know, chillax, man. “Moonlight Lovers” is a breezy tune with a simple guitar riff that, if sped up, might be right at home in a ska tune—but Johnson has no such intentions.
It’s a short disc, so pay particular attention to “A Dozen Roses,” which, with any luck, will become the next “it” wedding song, and “Getting Over You” reminds one of those early-90s cool jams as it completes the EP.
As mentioned, this is a short disc, but it offers great promise for Johnson’s future.
