Album Review

Following in the tradition of "soon come" (the Jamaican phrase that loosely translates into "I acknowledge your anxiousness, but it will happen whenever it happens"), this dub version of L.A. reggae group the Lions 2013 effort This Generation landed a year after the original album's release. The remixing is handled by Tom Chasteen from L.A.'s premiere dub parties organization Dub Club, and is in the Stones Throw traditions of being cool, filling, druggy, and tasteful. Modern electronics are kept to a minimum as "More More Dub" could have been cut in the golden age of Prince Jammy or Lee "Scratch" Perry, and studio trickery and dubby gimmicks never get in the way of stretching the groove or releasing the beat. Only eight cuts out of the original 12 are here, and nothing stretches past the four-minute mark, with "Dub It Tonight" coming in at a scant 2:22. Still, the EP-length release plays like a dub suite when taken in all at once, so try the original first, then come back here for Chasteen's druggy, groovy redo.
