Black Seeds feat. MC Ishu, remixed by JStar!

The reggaephonic vibes, as told by The Black Seeds and MC Ishu. Old skool dance hall riddims back up smart lyrical stylings with that certain bold positive flavor that is so right in this genre. Niceness!

New Zealand reggae flava from ze Black Seeds

Here’s a great sunny afternoon ditty. With a voice that reminds me a little of Jack Johnson, this track is great for sippin’ a cocktail on the porch on a lazy Sunday. There’s a beautiful, unexpected chord change in the bridge part that totally floats my boat.

The Black Seeds – “Sometimes Enough”

Rude sounds inna dojo, Black Seeds presiding. Roots rock reggae meets groove rock outta Wellington, New Zealand. A reggae band thru and true, but not without considerable originality and focused passion, this is a live band with a growing rep. They more than hold their own in the studio as well, capturing a well oiled live combo while maximizing the hi-fidelity of a good clean old school recording. Plus — and I never mention bands’ web sites, cos I mean mostly who gives a shite — but, these guys have a really nice flash site! Check it, animal lovers =) Reggae international on yr Superfan 2010 interradiowebnet.hizzle. All killa, no filla. Supafan, out.

The Black Seeds use a “Slingshot”

The Black Seeds – “Slingshot”

Why, it seems everyone and their cousin has a reggae band these days. Coming from the jazzy swingy new skool funky side is a band from Wellington City, New zealand called The Black Seeds. Boasting monster horn players, sophisticated arrangements and a scary solid rhythm section, they are not a simple reggae knock off, as they have been proving to a growing international following. “Slingshot” is their latest and gr8est, a powerful single with lyrics that work a karmic angle somewhat reminiscent of Peter Tosh’s “Downpressor Man” or The Heptones’ “Hypocrite.” Nice one.
