Project Description

SOLID GROUND BY THE BLACK SEEDS

The Black Seeds’€™ Solid Ground hit 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, before Easy Star made it their first release with the band in North America in September 2009.

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 “€œSend A Message” and “€œThe Bubble,”€ to infectious reggae gems like “Take Your Chances,”€ “€œLove Is A Radiation”€ and “€œCome To Me,”€ and the funk/soul filled “€œRotten Apple.”€ The North American release adds two previously unreleased bonus tracks: the funky soul instrumental “Year Of The Pig”€ and a dub version of “œStrugglers.”

Release Date: September 15th, 2009
