I got an advance copy of Mellowdrone's upcoming LP, Box (due out Jan. 24), in the mail over the weekend and I was pretty excited, because I've heard great things. Well, I hurriedly put Box into my car cd player, only to have it rejected due to "no audio data". Damn copywrite protection (understandable though, since it is an advance copy). Despite the urge to throw the thing out my window, I gave it another chance in my home cd player, and I'm glad I did.
These songs are beautiful and catchy, and the album has been growing on me all weekend. Here are a couple standout tracks from Box, as well as an excellent Faith Evans cover (yeah, that Faith Evans):
