Daptone records pride themselves on producing exquisite vintage sounds and with Brooklyn’s reggae stars, The Frightnrs the label has mastered the art of producing a superb and polished 60’s-sounding dancehall album.
Crafted under the intricate eye of producer Victor Axelrod (aka Ticklah), The Frightnrs debut album, Nothing More To Say captures perfectly the band’s rocksteady influences and inspirations.
Tragically, the album comes with a sting in its tail: three months before it was released, lead singer Dan Klein passed away from ALS, his first album his lasting legacy.
Nothing More To Say was released early in September 2016 and is a rich and rewarding listen for any reggae fan, I highly recommend it! Today’s song is the album’s title track: a truly, get-into-your-head-and-stay-there-song defined by its upbeat vibe and Dan Klein’s shining vocals. Listen above.
A MUST listen by the Listening Post, you can purchase Nothing More To Say from here.
…had to add this brilliant video of the FRIGHTNRS covering Michael Prophet’s “Gunman” live at Maria Hernandez Park in Brooklyn, New York City on June 21, 2012…superb!
