The Authentic Sounds of Now w/ Undercover

This one is about those authentic reggae sounds of now (with a few favourite jams thrown in). Not so much the Jamaican revival renaissance or the genuine Peckings sound, but fresh harmonious soul rocksteady from the UK and the States. Starting with Jr Thomas and the Volcanos (Truth and Soul) where you could close your eyes and think it's straight from a 1968 Beverley's recording. Or the 70/80s analogue roots reggae sound of The Frightners (Mad Decent), The Aggrolites, The Expanders or The Reasonators. Soul singers Liam Bailey, (Truth and Soul) Sharon Jones (Daptone) and Hollie Cook (Mr Bongo) over cracking reggae tunes. To rub-a-dub do-overs from The Dap Kings, Prince Fatty, Ticklah, Beverley All-stars. And the summer sounds of DJ Vadim, Fat Freddys, mashing up the reggae sound for a long time now, seom old, some new. Whatever styles, their vibe all is excellent and their craft is on point.
