Album Review

San Diego's Tribal Seeds benefit greatly from the jam band-fueled, rock-reggae revolution that hit somewhere around 2010, but they're a unique, inspired, and irie group, and don't fall prey to the genre's cliches. They do, however, utilize the tried and true rock-reggae tropes of sunshine, good times, and justice when it comes to their lyrics, but the appearance of the mystical Midnite man Vaughn Benjamin on the opening and title cut of Representing is the first sign these guys go deeper than usual flip-flop-wearing rockers. Veteran reggae vocalists Don Carlos ("Blood Clot") and Mykal Rose ("Herb Stock") are here to underline the group's reggae credibility, but many of the high points come from the group going it alone as "Moonlight" poetically paints a picture of untouched nature bringing one nirvana, while "Lonely Nights" is a beautiful ode to old friends who are no longer available, due to death or simply distance.

Best album by tribal seeds

This is by far their best album. They still have that distinct style that sets them apart. Every single song on here is a joy to listens to and I'll find myself listening to the same album all day! Love the depth of the lyrics as well, always fun to dig into their meanings!


Starting with Moonlight…..

Album of the Year! Get your grubbies on this one!

This album is amazing, from front to back! Start out on the introduction and title track, "Representing". That particular song alone will make you want to buy the entire album! And if that isn't enough persuasion, may we also highly recommend "Rock The Night", "Fill It Up", "In Your Area", "Moonlight", "Ruined", "Blood Clot", "Undercover Lover", "Night & Day", "Herb Stock", "Don't Wait", and "Lonely Night". In other words, the entire album is perfectly planned out and beautifully executed. It is exactly what we have begun to see from San Diego natives Tribal Seeds. With the new lineup, featuring Ryan Gonzo - aka "Gonzo" of Beyond-i-Sight - who brings a soulful new ingredient to the band's already delicious stylee, as well as the excellent production skills and heated keyboard licks from E.N Young - who is also a solo artist. Returning are, Steven Jacobo, his brother Tony Ray - aka "Tha Maad T-Ray", with Carlos Verdugo and Victor Navarro - aka "Shamu" aka "Shams", forming one of the tightest rhythm sections in the reggae scene today. We didn't forget to mention Steven Jacobo. The guy honestly needs no introduction. Listen to any of these songs and you'll experience Jacobo at his best. Great job, guys. We'll be rocking to this for years to come!

Genre: Reggae

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Based in San Diego, rock-reggae band Tribal Seeds come at their music from a different angle, more influenced by bands like Steel Pulse and Aswad than the common touchstone of Sublime. Formed in 2005 by the Jacobo brothers, singer Steven and keyboardist Tony-Ray, the group issued its debut album, Youth RebelLion, that same year. The album was the first of many to be released on the group's own label, including a self-titled album in 2008 plus The Harvest from 2009. The Soundwaves EP followed in 2011,...
