Easy Star’s Lonely Hearts Dub Band

I haven’t updated in a while, and I actually have legitimate things to post about (Fathers day quad rally!), but I haven’t gotten around to it… But in the mean time, I wanted to share this awesome that I just stumbled upon on the Interwebs! Ahh, the power of Wiki!
There’s a band called Easy Star All-Stars, and according to the wonderful Pedia de Wiki, are “a reggae group who are signed to their own Easy Star record label, which is based in New York City.[1] They specialize in covering popular albums in a reggae and dub style”. And they ROCK. I probably don’t look it, but I’m a sucker for reggae music. It puts me in an awesome mood. If I’m feeling down, there’s one thing that’s almost guaranteed to cheer me up. Some nice reggae. And I think this might have just become my go-to when it comes to picking myself out of the gutters. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is one of my favourite albums… Evar. Now, imagine the awesome that is Sgt. Pepper, put it next to some reggae, and ask yourself; will it blend? *blender noises* FEW! Awesome smoke! Do breathe this! I swear, this is one of the greatest things I’ve ever listened to. Well, maybe not. But it’s putting me in such a great place right now. I really think everyone should check them out. This is their website, and this is a YouTube playlist of Easy Star’s Lonely Hearts Dub Band. Check them out. ASAP. This is going on my Zune right away.

That’s all for now. I think this is a good idea though, posting about the music I stumble upon and people introduce to me. I don’t know if this will become super regular, but I think it’s a good excuse to get out smaller, more frequent updates. I can only twitter so much!
