Radical Face is Ben Cooper, a Floridian who released his debut album entitled “Ghost” in 2007.  While the album’s original release escaped my attention, I’ve since been put on to one of the tracks off of that album entitled “Welcome Home”.  It’s a really beautiful and soothing arrangement, and actually reminds me a lot of one of my favourite songs, The Shins‘ “New Slang”.  This song feels like the end of a long journey, as the title would suggest.  The rhymtic clapping and stomping percussion brings to mind the sound of a train passing over railroad ties, and the chorus is just a jubilant homecoming celebration.  Fantastic song.
