Opis płyty:

New Kingston is one of the first bands to combine the old and new worlds of reggae. Being Jamaican by birth and growing up around the New York City scene, where their father (and bassist) Courtney Panton Sr. played sessions and live shows, they were exposed to the Jamaican-facing aspects of the genre, its roots and history, and its ever-changing styles. But the three brothers in New Kingston also witnessed the boom in American reggae first hand and utilize the ways U.S. bands have pushed the genre: constant touring, great live shows, and social networking. KINGSTON CITY is the band’s third full-length (and first on Easy Star Records). It features 12 original songs, including collaborations with Tribal Seeds, Kimie Miner, The Wailing Souls, Sister Carol, and the late great Sugar Minott.

 

While the US reggae scene has only recently boomed with new bands expanding the boundaries of the genre, the UK has long had a tradition of home grown reggae acts. Easy Star Records proudly released the first full-length record by Backbeat Soundsystem, one of the bright lights of the latest UK reggae wave. Together Not Apart showcases the unique sounds of this up-tempo funky reggae 8-piece. Produced by the band’€™s singer and main songwriter, Dean Forrest, the record features 12 songs that demonstrate a sound somewhere between Steel Pulse and SOJA, with equal parts political, social, and romantic lyrics.

 

“Kingston City is a genuine body of work that displays an incredible vocal range, candid lyrics and impressive instrumentals. It gives the listener the sort of meaningful connection and escape that every piece of music should provide.” — Top Shelf Reggae

“This album is the pairing of exceptional musicianship and excellent production along with a guest-list of talent that reads like a reggae legacy spanning decades of genres…Kingston City is beaming with positivity, messages of faith and expressions of love…” — The Pier

“New Kingston is rooted in roots, but brings textures and styles from across the spectrum and the time continuum, colored in the under-heralded hues of reggae music that are unique to New York’s Five Boroughs.” — Examiner
