"Soup," the title track on Eufórquestra's newest album, gives us what amounts to a mission statement in the verse in which Grandma makes her soup and a crowd of ladies gather. They ask what she puts in that soup and she tells them: a little bit of sun and a little bit of clouds, a little bit of soft and a little bit of loud — which, as it turns out, is roughly the recipe for Soup itself. Sure, it's reggae and ska and dub and everything else you expect when thirty-year-old white men get ahold of world instruments and weed. But mostly it's an inoffensive mix of sunshine and clouds, soft and loud. It's music for harmless days spent dreaming of a tropical paradise.
