Frightnrs - versions galore, out Oct 20

The Frightnrs dropped a glorious reggae/rocksteady album back in 2016, now here comes the version excursions...... looking forward to this one...

"It's rare for a debut album, especially one in such a polarizing genre like Reggae, to garner the kind of universal fanfare The Frightnrs' 2016 long player Nothing More To Say received.

Mainly because it's a record that transcends genre specific qualifiers and rhetoric that pigeonhole many albums. It is in the truest sense of the phrase, a great record.

Shortly after its release a single for Dispute (a featured track) was pressed, and like many classic reggae singles, it included a Dub (version) on the B-Side courtesy of famed reggae producer Victor "Ticklah" Axelrod. The single was a smash success which in return inspired Axelrod to produce Dub versions for all the songs on Nothing More To Say."

The result is More To Say Versions. Out October 30 on Daptone Records

Victor Axelrod has worked with the band for a while, you can cop their earliest recordings from 2012 on their Bandcamp page as Name your price downloads, like their single Never Answer, with a tasty dub from Mr Axelrod on the flip. Quality vibes.
