Here is what we found this week.......Enjoy!

Instead of not doing a blog this week we decided to list a bunch of good songs that released. I did not find anything great just good. Maybe this should be the start of an additional playlist? What do you think?


West Molites ‘I See A Sign’
Real roots reggae from West Molites,  (sometimes spelt Westmorelites after their Parish of birth Westmoreland) formed in the late 60s and are the early incarnation of the group The Itals featuring all the original members Keith Porter, Lloyd Ricketts, and Ronnie Davis. TRS Records are thrilled to bring forward this golden gem titled "I See A Sign" originally recorded in 1975 on the one away Big Dread imprint, inspired by lyrics from Burning Spear's "Red Green & Gold" which was released the same year. "I See A Sign" would be the last ever West Molites recording before changing to The Itals in 1976. It all sounds familiar from the opening drum roll to the track to opening vocals. Now we know why. So this alone draws you in. The heavy roots sound is very attractive, too. So this is a re-release.


Mista AYA 'Raggamuffin'
Mista AYA 'Raggamuffin' is strongly inspired by the 'raggamuffin' style of Jamaican culture with that 80's sound. It is also a tribute to the 'Raggamuffins' of Northern France where Aya lives and is apart of that movement.


Reign Christopher 'Iz Bout Time'
New artist Reign Christopher out of Barbados has a new tune 'Iz Bout Time.' Typical lyrics for a soca tune yet the music has a good groove that Reign rides well so it works as a standout.
Ainsley King ‘Jah Jah In Control’
Not sure if Kulcharal or sexy, groovy soca is our favorite, this Ainsley King sounds like a roots reggae tribute to jah done in soca.


Dirty Heads 'Life's Been Good'
Dirty Heads return to their reggae rock sound with a cover of a classic from The Eagles Joe Walsh. Remember this is the sound that broke The Dirty Heads big. This song is no exception just a bit poppy.


Ras Kuko feat. Green Valley ‘Sweet Reina’
Great Spanish reggae combination in two ways: the obvious is the two different artists with Ras Kuko sounding extra sweet on this one along with the raggamuffin sing jay style of frontman of Green Valley. The second combo is the comparison of their ‘Sweet Reina’ between their woman and their sweet reggae music.
