“Everything is Nice,” the lead single from Popcaan’s debut album, Where We Come From, has become something of a ghetto anthem in Kingston, touching on struggles and triumphs of everyday Jamaican life. A working man’s feel-good anthem.

“Bizness” by the tUnE-yArDs gives me the excitement of hearing new sounds. One of the most amazing things about this music is that it’s largely made by just one person, Merrill Garbus.
