    Default Sam Sparro anyone?

    Listening to Pandora today, and the channel I have trained to mimic the Sahara tent popped this guy up.

    Shit yeah! This guy's awesome. Admittedly I know very little about him....only what I read on allmusic. Anyone hip to this cat?

    Haven't heard any of his stuff exept Black & Gold.

    Which is - I defy you to disagree - one of the best fucking songs of the last year.

    In spite of it's insanely annoying video.

    The rest of it is quite good. Black &Gold is the best track, but I really dig the rest.

    Doesn't he seem to always have trouble keeping his gig date(s)? Rumor has it he canceled his LA show (twice) due to visa issues.

    His album is a lot of trashy fun.

    A lot of current 'R&B' singers could learn some things from this guy. Great, soulful voice.

    He was with Mark Ronson this year. Yes, I watched Mark Ronson. And had a damn good time.

    Yup, Sam Sparro played with Mark Ronson. Rska beat me to it! Ronson was actually pretty decent. I got bored with Kraftwerk about 1/2 way through their set.

    There's a DJ Mehdi remix of Sam Sparro too, which is pretty good.
