Welsh Rumba: Little Rumba and "New Year's Resolution"

New Years Resolution by Little Rumba on Grooveshark

Today's random tune is a little precursor for what's coming up. The song is called New Year's Resolution by Little Rumba. Little Rumba is from Wales, founded in the early 1990s. Originally playing Welsh pubs and parties, they have begun to reach a wider audience. They describe their music as a "recognizable house style" which draws inspiration from Eastern Europe and South America as well as jazz and blues. They have also been described as Tom Waits meets Tom Lehrer. New Year's Resolution can be found on their 2012 album We Could Be Anywhere.
