Best of 2016 Pick 15

The Lickshots: The Lickshots (Rockers Int’l, 2016)

A sort of anonymous roots reggae group from NYC on the label that puts out and maintains melodica virtuoso Augusto Pablo’s music.

This is about as sweet a dub record as you’re gonna find.  Classic delays, thick bass and well done drumming but with some really tasty flute and horn work (see clip below).  Also great organ playing.  The tunes work a great balance between thick grooves but with enough room for solos to keep you very engaged.

Everybody in the band is happening, the production is really well done and don’t sleep on this great roots dub EP!
