Irish singer-songwriter, Hozier, has released the music video for his latest single, “From Eden”

“From Eden” appears on Hozier’s critically acclaimed self titled debut album, of which Rolling Stone gushed:

Blessed with a sensual singing voice and a seemingly bottomless well of lapsed-Catholic-style conflict, Hozier channels Van Morrison’s Celtic R&B, Southern soul and Black Keys-style garage blues into intimately roiling songs like ‘Angel of Small Death and the Codeine Scene

Suffice to say, many XPN listeners feel the same way. Read a review of Hozier’s show @ The Troc


A company in Seattle wants to make Bob Marley the face of marijuana. Privateer Holdings has announced it has reached a licensing deal with Bob Marley’s heirs to offer what it’s calling the “world’s first global cannabis brand” where regulations permit. The legal-weed will be called Marley Natural.   Beginning in late 2015, Marley Natural will be offering:

Heirloom Jamaican cannabis strains inspired by those Bob Marley enjoyed.’ In addition, the company will also market other hemp infused products such as sun repair creams and lotions containing Jamaican botanicals such as aloe and coconut, as well as accessories, including limited edition products based on those that Bob preferred.
