[OUT NOW] The Frightnrs
Out of Queens, NY comes an astounding Rocksteady and Ska sound reminiscent of Jamaica in the '60s and '70s. Daptone Records championed its first reggae band, The Frightnrs, and assisted them in releasing their debut, and only, album 'Nothing More To Say'.
In short, this is a fucking great album. It has stayed in my car since the day it was mailed to me. This is easily one of the best records I've heard all year, and surpasses many other artist albums within the genre.
On October 20th, Daptone Records and The Frightnrs released the instrumental and dubbed-out tracks from the album, released as 'More To Say Versions'.
From Distiller Promo:
It's rare for a debut album, especially one in such a polarizing genre like Reggae, to garner the kind of universal fanfare The Frightnrs' 2016 Nothing More To Say received. Mainly because it's a record that transcends genre specific qualifiers and rhetoric that pigeonhole many albums. It is in the truest sense of the phrase, a great record. Shortly after its release a single for "Dispute" was pressed, and like many classic reggae singles, it included a Dub (version) on the B-side courtesy of famed reggae producer Victor "Ticklah" Axelrod. The single was a smash success which in return inspired Axelrod to produce Dub versions for all the songs on Nothing More To Say. The result is More To Say Versions.
