Happy hump day everybody! If you forgot since my last post, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad released their new album “In These Times” yesterday!! Definitely give it a listen because you can stream the ENTIRE album on their website, as well as download an awesome 17 song sampler on their website FO’ FREE right here http://giantpandadub.com/site/ On another tangent, Reel Big Fish and Goldfinger(I had no idea they were still around) just announced a tour w/ Suburban Legends, in which they will be playing HOB in Boston and Lupo’s in Providence this June!!! Set your calendars because RBF puts on a great show, and seeing Goldfinger live would be a very, very rare opportunity.
Now that we’ve taken care of that, its Wednesday once again, which means that I have a fresh reggae band for ya’ll to chiggity check out. Their name is The Aggrolites and they’ve been bringing their self-proclaimed “dirty reggae” sound to the Los Angeles reggae scene since the early 2000’s. Forming from the break up of The Vessels and The Rhythm Doctors, The Aggrolites have since put out 5 full length records, their most recent being “Rugged Road” in 2011, which was their first album with Young Cub Records, a label based out of Boston, Mass. These cats have an impressive touring resume, which includes serving as the backing band for such music icons as Phyllis Dillon, Prince Buster, an even ex-Hellcat label-mate and Rancid frontman Tim Armstrong. I personally think that their album with Armstrong, “A Poet’s Life”, is an impressive and bold departure for him, since most punk fans have strictly known him as a punk musician for the past 20 years. Regardless, The Aggrolites are an extremely tight band-musically and personally- and they put on one hell of a live show from what I remember, as I saw them with Slightly Stoopid a few years back at Lupo’s. Def give these guys a listen, they won’t dissapoint. Oh yeah, do yourself a favor and download their new live album “Unleashed Live Vol. 1″ here for FREE http://aggroreggae.com/ You won’t regret it.
Below I have attached some songs from their album IV, as well as songs off of “A Poet’s Life” with Tim Armstrong. Enjoy!!
