Caress Your Soul
CD - LP
Sureshaker - CW011
This sounds like the clash between the end of the two-tone era with the sharp sounds of The Jam, The Clash, and the reggae influence from groups like Katchafire and 10FT Ganja Plant. The production is pretty smooth and really makes the album an above average experience. Tracks like "Bootleg Rascal" and "How to Fly" really sound like something off of Katchafire's latest work, while tunes such as "These Girls" and "Sex" really make me thing of The Jam or one of those sharper mod groups. If you're into summer beach parties with acoustic guitars and neon colours, give Sticky Fingers a try.
This might not be an album for everyone, particularly those who don't like to mix their reggae with too many other contemporary genres, but I would be hesitant to call out these points against the album. I would tell you to listen to this and keep an open mind. You will more than likely end up enjoying the music if you are a fan of some sort of mix between Sublime, Gorillaz, and Katchafire.
