Los Aggrios on vinyl

If you’re looking for a decent old-school instrumental early reggae, Los Aggrios from Los Angeles will be a good choice. They recently released their first 45.

The Aquabats – Kooky Spooky​.​.​. in Stereo!

We already know two first songs from upcoming Aquabats album. Both got pretty cool lyrics videos and their sound lets me be quite optimistic about fast aproaching premiere of “Kooky Spooky…In Stereo”.

Taapa Groove – “Punto Negro”

I’m always very happy when I manage to find on the internet a band I’ve never heard before, and whose sound is way above average. Of course, I am even more surprised it turns out to be a band with more than 10 years of experience. That’s the case with Taapa Groove, who in 2018 released their 4th album – “Punto Negro”.

The Bartenders – Tańcz i Klaszcz

I’ve heard several times that Poles can’t clap to the beat. In my experience, other nations also have some problems with this. Perhaps The Bartenders’ new song will be the cure for this condition. Watch the music video!

Travelers All Stars debut

One of the best bands I got to know during last few years has finally released a record. Even if we’re only talking about a 45, I still consider it a big event. Energy that this band can put into several minutes tune could be envied by quite a few scene’s veterans with many albums on their accounts.

Never Thought – Renaldo Domino, Lone Ranger and xRobBlack

We like this kind of premieres. Polish reggae producer xRobBlack sends his instrumental to an american label Happy As A Lark. Guys from Chicago say they need a strong soul vocal here and they recruit a legendary falsetto of Renaldo Domino for this project. To make things even more fun they add Lone Ranger’s toasting to the set. And that’s how “Never Thought” song and its alternative version „Think Again!” were born.

After moving to California, with help of musician and producer Brian Dixon he formed a 10-men band The Volcanos and devoted himself to recording beautiful, melodic tunes refering to the golden era of rocksteady.  In effect in 2005 an absolutely perfect album “Beware” was created. After three years guys went with the punch and on  October 18th “Rockstone” came out.
