Back to “Life”: Stream the New Single From New Kingston

Words by Jesse Serwer—

New Kingston Life

New Kingston—brother trio Courtney, Tahir (also known as “Slim”) and Stephen (aka “Suki”)—have been staples at live reggae events in New York since their early teens, while recent years have seen them trod the world on tour with Collie Buddz. Along the way, and with the help of their veteran session player father (and bassist), Courtney Sr., they’ve honed their own pop-reggae sound, a style they’re set to showcase on the upcoming album, Kingston University. “Life” is the first single from the LP, out Feb. 5 and, if you enjoy the melodica, this one is definitely for you. Sure, the foundation-style riddim and Uhuru-esque vocals start off the thing with a nice vibes. But it’s the appearance of an Augustus Pablo-like melodica that elevates “Life” to the next level, and has us playing this one on repeat.

Album Preview: Clinton Fearon’s “Heart And Soul”

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Clinton Fearon Heart and Soul

Bassist, vocalist, composer and lyricist (along with Albert Griffiths) for the great roots reggae band The Gladiators, and a former house musician for Studio One and Lee “Scratch” Perry, Clinton Fearon is truly one of the unsung heroes of Jamaican music. The multi-talented Fearon—these days making his home in Seattle, Washington—recently revisited the Gladiators’ heyday, recording an acoustic album featuring new versions of some of the band’s toppa top tunes. He plays every instrument on the LP, called Heart and Soul: rhythm, bass and acoustic guitars, congas, calabash, cabasa, cowbell and comb, wooden frog, spoons. Although the songs come largely from the reggae era, the new versions have a pre-reggae, mento-like quality to them.
