Mike Brooks - Calling (Coptic Lion 7")

I'm blown away by the rhythm to this song. It's such a great song but I can't really place where I've heard it before. I was thinking it's Miike Snow - Animal (one of those perfect modern pop songs) and it does bear (no pun intended) some resemblance but I'm not entirely convinced. Anyone that knows which song it might be I've heard the rhythm from? It might be another reggae song but for some reason I'm thinking it's a pop tune.

Coptic Lion is a very interesting label. Mike Brooks seems to be very forward thinking in his selections of players and rhythms.

So it's an original rhythm! Must have been Animal I had echoing back in my mind then. More refreshing rhythms like this please.

2 more great songs about animals. Much better than the one Klacidis linked to:

Yeah I heard them. I love Diggory Kenrick. I have yet to hear him on a single and not be impressed by his playing. A fantastic player.
