Solid Ground

New Zealand Reggae/Funk At Its Finest

Listen Now
  Slingshot - The Black Seeds
  Take Your Chances - The Black Seeds
The Black Seeds’ latest album Solid Ground hits North American shores on a wave of great success in New Zealand, Australia and Europe. It spent 7 consecutive weeks in the Top 5 of New Zealand’s music charts. Now, Easy Star Records releases Solid Ground in North America in September 2009 (exclusively on iTunes from September 15, then everywhere else September 29).

Produced by the band’s guitarist Mike Fabulous, the album oozes with The Black Seeds’ distinctive flavor – from the heavy-hitting, Karma-inspired “Slingshot” and darker reggae/dub-infused tracks like “Send a Message” and “The Bubble,” to infectious reggae gems like “Take Your Chances,” “Love Is A Radiation” and “Come To Me,” and the funk/soul filled “Rotten Apple” and “Afrophone.” The North American release adds two previously unreleased bonus tracks: the funky soul instrumental “Year Of The Pig” and a dub version of “Strugglers.” The iTunes release will have two additional exclusive bonus tracks: an acoustic version of “One Step At A Time,” which lays bare the songwriting prowess of the band, as well as a dub version of “Bulletproof."
