I first discovered these guys when iTunes gave away Mansard Roof as the free single of the week (Remember when they used to do that?). I was instantly hooked, the pop sensibility merged with the afro rhythms and obvious Paul Simon influence made them a perfect fit for me. This song pretty much compounds everything that is great about their debut album.

I love playing this riff! It’s almost the perfect song to play on a ukulele as you can play it on any sized uke with ease. If you only have a little soprano uke, get this post saved and give it a go when you get a chance.
