Mike Post - "I Know What I Know" (MP3)

by Matt Edsall

20 July 2011

 

No, it’s not a cover of Paul Simon’s African Graceland track, but rather the debut single off My Place Is Here / My Time Is Now, the solo record of multi-instrumentalist Mike Post. Hailing from Los Angeles, Post studied music at Northeastern University where he learned the ins and outs of the business as well as how to put together a catchy recording, which is showcased here. Driven by the ukulele (Eddie Vedder’s really brought that thing back, huh?), it has the laid-back persona of a guy chilling around a campfire with friends. “If you’re waiting for a sign to set you free / Then you’d be just like me,” Post sings, and considering the economy’s in absolute shit, you can’t help but feel the same. At least while waiting, though, Post gives us this tune to cheer us up.
