Nothing More To Say - The Frightnrs

from the forthcoming album Nothing More To Say (2016)

Brooklyn-based Daptone Records is one the most vital indie labels in the world today.  Their ability to unearth mature artists and raise them to global prominence is staggering.  The common threads are that all of their music is well-written, well-performed, and well-produced.  The latter is particularly differentiating.  All Daptone records have an unmistakable sheen.  This is special.

For this blog, Daptone has provided a perpetual spring of great new music.  Over the past four years, Daptone artists that I have blogged about include Charles Bradley, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Antibalas, The Budos Band, and The Sugarman 3.  What a line-up !!!

Add to that list The Frightnrs, a reggae band from the borough of Queens that play in a classic rocksteady style.  The title track from their forthcoming album - Nothing More To Say - is a throwback masterpiece.  Timeless and flawless, impeccably produced by Victor Axelrod.  You have to check it out.

Sadly, this record serves as a tribute to lead vocalist - Dan Klein - who passed away from ALS last month.  His soul and poetic purity will be missed.

I really dig this tune.  It takes me back to the Studio One sound that I love so much.
