At the end of July, Sam Champion guitarist Sean Sullivan released RINGS, his debut as Sean Bones. When we posted the video for lead track “Dancehall” we mentioned the influence of reggae on Sullivan’s project, though you likely could’ve come to that conclusion on your own. The sweet, sunny-even-if-not-sunny “Turn Them,” his album-closing duet with Norah Jones, is less obviously dubbed-out than that aforementioned, but you’ll clearly hear the island angle. If you’re curious about the pairing (or the reggae), Sullivan stars with Jones in Wah Do Dem, a film set partially in Jamaica. She stars with him in this.
