In a partially biased post because these are homies, a large portion of my 2016 was spent singing the praises of the release for Queens outfit and all around talented, good dudes, The Frightnrs, and their debut album “Nothing More To Say” released by Daptone Records. A seemingly perfect reggae/rocksteady record that transports you to 1960’s Jamaica, executed effortlessly and genuinely, with humility and homage to their predecessors.
As much as I love to celebrate this record, it is bittersweet and diffcult to put into words, as their front man and dear friend, Dan “Brukky” Klein, succumbed to his battle with A.L.S. just prior to the record’s release.

When their sound hits your brain waves, you would not expect this to be something from modern times. I love to play this record at parties, cleaning around the house, driving, basically anywhere and in any situation. Give it a listen, and give rocksteady a chance. MORE LIFE!
