Mondo Cozmo: 'Let 'em Get Stoned'

Mondo Cozmo’s smokin’ Josh Ostrander

Thanks to their appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Mar. 23, we discovered Mondo Cozmo, who performed their 2016 song, "Shine." The chorus goes:

Let 'em get high
Let 'em get stoned
Everything will be alright if you let it go

Mondo Cozmo is is Josh Ostander's band. He sings lead in a nasal Dylan style. It's likely that "Shine" is his homage to Dylan's "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" (the chorus goes, "Everybody must get stoned"). "Shine" peaked at No. 24 on the Alternative chart.
