When a band calls itself the Culver City Dub Collective, you immediately think you know what to expect: laid-back SoCal reggae with a loopy "whoa, dude" groove. In this case, the reality is a bit more complex. Led by transplanted Bostonians Franchot Tone (guitar) and Adam Topol (drums), the band is actually a loose aggregation whose music ranges from smoky dubwise reggae to Afro-Latin grooves, jazz, and abstract soundscapes that dissolve into an almost Brian Eno-esque ambience. And there's more: "No More My Love" is what a ska band would sound like if it were fronted by Tom Waits, and "Bad Reaction" sounds an awful lot like a Bedouin Soundclash song — probably because the guest singer is Jay Malinowski. Other guests include Ben Harper, Jack Johnson (in whose band Topol regularly plays), Studio One legend Winston Jarrett, and keyboardist Money Mark. And a number of the tracks featured here are remixes of songs originally issued on the Collective's self-titled debut EP — a considerate gesture to their fans who already bought the original version, and an effective teaser for those whose introduction to the band is this full-length album. Very highly recommended.
A New Standard That Will Never Be Reached Again
Culver City Dub Collective (CCDC) is most likely the greatest group ever to be formed and recorded. Chris Joyner is the new Jesus Christ. Imagining a world without him is the most horrible thing that I can possibly imagine. A world with out Chris Joyner would be a world without joy, however, each and every one of us are truly blessed to live in a world with CCDC, the greatest band of all time.
Half of these songs are on their first album!
What is this? I buy their first album which was amazing and I was looking forward to buy this album but half the songs are on their first album! One of the songs is the same just named differently. Didn't trick me. The transition from their first album to this second one is terrible. It seems as if they made 7 new songs, threw 5 old songs on there, and dubbed a jack johnson song. Buy their first album, ignore their sophmore album
sweet reggae music.....
one of those albums you just let play!
