Imagine Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant singing one of Beck's ramshackle junkyard blues tunes and you have a pretty good idea of what this song by young Irish musician Simple Kid sounds like. I'm not sure if anything else on "SK2," the album "Lil King Kong" comes from, is quite so charming, but let's not look a gift horse in the mouth -- this is perfect summertime music, designed to be spun over and over again on a sparkling, cloudless day.
