Ron Contour & Factor - Wondrous Things
Ron Contour, aka Moka Only, aka Daniel Denton, has done a lot. He was a member of Swollen Members (pun intended unfortunately), as well as the 90’s one-hit wonder band Len and that’s not to mention his extensive solo works. He has released sixty-three albums since 1995. Sixty-three. I definitely haven’t heard even close to all of them but if “Wondrous Things” is any indication, there may be some gold to be found in that mountainous pile.
A beautiful Janis Ian sample coupled with Contour’s smooth vocals make for a surreal, sun-washed two and half minutes. The video, filmed in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, only adds to the effect. The song reminds me that summer just around the corner. Papaya.
