More About

Matisyahu's latest album, Spark Seeker, practically screams "fresh start." There's no more full beard, and the man once christened "the Hasidic reggae superstar" recently relocated from the East Coast to L.A. "Let yesterday burn and throw it in the fire," he sings on "Live Like a Warrior," one of many songs on the album where Matisyahu declares himself ready to seize his moment. Produced by Kool Kojak (Nicki Minaj, Ke$ha), Spark Seeker is a relentlessly positive, big-screen world-pop record saturated with rhythm, far beyond his usual roots-reggae and dancehall flows. They're still there, of course, but here Matisyahu also welcomes rapper Shyne on two songs, widens the focus even further for big-beat dance productions "Breathe Easy" and "Tel Avivn" and makes the ancient Mideast flavor of "King Crown of Judah" sound utterly contemporary. And since we already know he can rock a crowd — he's recorded two different live albums at Stubb's in Austin — with these songs Matisyahu could steal Tuesday's show out from under the headliners, easily.
