The boy really likes these guys right now.
I was looking for some Senegalese music and fell pretty hard for this.
The name Bideew Bou Bess means New Star in the Wolof language.
Is this supposed to be new songs in 2020? Well, AJR was new to me
this last year. I really like both their sound and their "not sure what I'm doing here" approach to lyrics and message. I played a bunch of their stuff as pandemic fatigue really started to hit in the fall. Great for quick car trips with the bass up a little when you have to get out of the house. And the kids like them.
They're three brothers who seem to be into the joyful production of their own music, so that's cool. They've been around a few years with a number of recognizable songs getting airtime, but are all over the place now with Bang! (But haven't been featured in WGOM Videos!) They don't have a ton of video choices, so the pick here is a little arbitrary. Some of my favorites include Weak, Netflix Trip, No Grass Today, Bud Like You, Three-Thirty, Burn the House Down, Call My Dad, Don't Throw Out My Legos, and Birthday Party. Enjoy!
