London's Natty reminds FADER staffers of either Maxi Priest, Finley Quaye, Lauren Hill or Ziggy Marley (maybe even a reggae'd John Mayer?). And now that you're done cackling, understand that we can't always listen to Mavado. That shit will drive you to drink. Natty's signed to Atlantic in the UK, just like another young rising star and is getting recommended to us by people we generally trust with this kind of thing. His recent mixtape, which you can find online if you sign up for a free download, has some certified summerish jams, but "Cold Town," his first big single, is nay on it, so we are putting it on here.
