Some things just flow naturally—and for the trio of Josh Cocktail, Loggy and Big Red (yes, those are their names), they met, decided to make some music, and two months later had a debut album that scoured the top 10 on the iTunes Alternative charts. This summer, the SoCal group released a song every week from their Take a Hit album, free and clear, with the entire record available now, completely gratis. If Dirty Heads is getting a little played out for your taste, give these boys a listen. They've got that sun-and-sand, rap-mixed-with-lush-chorus thing down pat. And if California beach-goers love one thing, it's music that reminds them of summer all year long.
