Coming all the way from the Hawaii, The Green are bringing a different type of Island Vibe with their new album Hawai'i '13 out August 20, 2013 on Easy-Star Records. I've been doing a lot of road-trippin' this summer and this cd happened to make it into my car's cd player. Listen after listen, it just keeps growing on me more and more. Tight reggae rhythms behind slick vocals and an attitude of flavor and life make this album special. There's a lot of reggae being played these days, but hardly any of it has the kind of attitude and flavor The Green bring to the table. Stream my favorite track from the album, Something About It, below, and cop the album at your leisure.
