Speaking of UK punk progeny, Hollie Cook (daughter of Sex Pistols drummer Paul Cook), just released her second album, Twice. Like her 2011 debut, this is breezy reggae pop with about as perfect production as you could want with a record like this by Prince Fatty and contributions from Dennis Bovell (Linton Kwesi Johnson, Orange Juice, The Slits), George Dekker (Desmond’s half-brother and bandmate in The Pioneers), and Winston Francis (aka King Cool). It’s a modern record with a crate-digger’s appreciation of the classic Studio One sound (plus lovers rock and late-’70s Sly & Robbie) and late ’80s soul (Sade, Lisa Stansfield), with some lovely string arrangements, great songs and Hollie’s honeyed vocals/harmonies. Twice sounds like summer and you can stream the whole album and watch the video for “Looking for Real Love” below…
