Listening to: Fat Freddys Drop, Based on a True Story

Fat Freddys Drop Based on a True Story

My sister introduced me to this a few years ago. She lived in New Zealand then, as do Fat Freddys Drop, a live dub band. This is basically dubby roots reggae played by a (very good) live band. It loses momentum a little during the second half of the record, but much of it is spectacular. It’s really great late-night music.

This is one of those sleeper CDs, the records that someone recommends, and you start to like them a little… and then they just sort of stay in your CD player/on your MP3 player and never really go away because there’s always some new aspect to be heard. Highly recommended.
