AGGROLITES

2009-11-22

Southern Califorian’s Aggrolites play an appealing mix of ska and what they call “dirty” reggae (raw, stripped down). Here is their 2006 self titled sophomore cd. These are very talented guys - keyboardist Roger Rivas steals certain songs (Sound of a Bombshell) and the throaty voice of Jesse Wagner sounds like Jamaica to me. With 19 tracks the instrumental songs (4,7,9,11,13,14) started to sound the same and I believe it’s the weakest part of this offering. The first two tracks were brilliant and the last song is their very own cheer. I think you‘ll find this Reggae cd offers something a bit different and at WYCE that means it’s all good! Anne Lamont
