Former teenage skate sensation Tommy Guererro has long since moved into a second career, making hard-to-define music that traces lazy patterns through the realms of indie rock, dub, downtempo, and soul. From the Soil to the Soul stands as his finest effort to date. Earlier albums sounded experimental, yet unfocused; here, Tommy G's spacey, multifaceted sound gets some gravitas. It still meanders a bit, zig-zagging instead of traveling from point A to point B, but there's a sense that Guererro knows where he wants to lead you. Perfect for 3 a.m. stargazing, with a bit of prime-time partying thrown in.
