iTunes Editors’ Notes

L.A.’s Aggrolites have carved a path for themselves in the relatively desolate field of contemporary American reggae artists. After three strong releases, live stints with the likes of Prince Buster and Madness, and laying down the instrumental tracks on Tim Armstrong’s delightful Poet’s Life album, the band returns here with a sly grin, daring to go a step beyond the vintage, “dirty reggae” sound they’re known for. In addition to classic Trojan Records and Studio One influences — heard on tracks like the keyboard-riffing “Keep Moving On,” the Toots & the Maytals-flavored “What a Complex,” and the glorious ska instrumental, “Musically On Top” —  you’ve got the sound of classic soul. “Tear That Falls” is what might have happened had Bob Marley and Sam Cooke hooked up in the studio, and “It’s Time to Go” and “The Sufferer” skitter along on a soul-meets-ska bed of peppery organs and bluesy vocals. Next to the lazy, sunshine reggae of “By Her Side” and the high-energy rock steady of “Runnin’ Strong,” tracks like “Firecracker” and “Wild Time” recall the soul/funk of World Is a Ghetto-era War.

Customer Reviews

Real Reggae Here

This isnt ska or punk, but just good ol fashion reggae...not to knock Sublime, but this is the way reggae was meant to be. If your looking for that you have just found your new favorite band. DUB

let me clarify

The aggrolites are absolutely amazing and this new records exceeded my expectations too! However jamal, this is not old fashioned reggae "brah", this is a complete new direction with an amazing fusion of sounds, instruments, and genres, have you ever heard a reggae band besides Bob Marley and the Wailers??? And what does Sublime have to do with anything?! Perhaps if you listened their stuff other than "date rape" or "Santeria" You'd understand that with Bud Gaughs drums and Bradley Nowells genious lyrics and amazing have time ska guitaring all behind Eric Wilsons insane base lines that just structures and backbones their music, Sublime was an amazing group that created a completely different sound than The Aggrolites.

reggae summertime

Formed: 2002 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Reggae

Years Active: '00s

Blame it on No Doubt or blame it on Sublime, but by the middle of the 1990s, very little of the pop music that was described as ska had anything to do with Jamaican dance music of the early '60s. Too many bands whose sole connection to the musical style had been a few singles by the Specials or the English Beat got it all exactly backward, with the punk influences drowning out what little Jamaican influence remained: the result was basically Green Day with horns, and it wasn't any good for anyone....
