as a band how do you guys like them? I get that it isn't "reggae" roots or whatever you want to call it. Do you like their sound?

I guess I should give you mine.. I think they are dope.. heard their first record a couple years ago... first heard their tune with Collie and Hustle and then gave the whole thing a listen. Glad they are from the East because they would be lumped in with others as "Cali Reggae" I am sure but I think they are dope, The way I think about it is this.. I am not Jamaican, if I try to make a Jamaican sound.. it would be fake. IF I do me and one of my heaviest influences if Jamaican Music then it should come out sounding like that. I think they will catch the usual flack but I don't see that as being justified.. IMO

did not really give them much attention until this tune right here...



Tell me are the speakers loud enough
Can you hear my voice cutting through the crowd enough
Can you feel the baseline thumping
Is it tough enough to break the silence and turn it into love
Tell me are my people loud enough
Is there any hope
Can we wake up proud enough to live a life of purpose
I know that we can love enough to get going when the going gets rough

Tell me cause I need to know before I go
I don't have much time to sit and relax while we all unwind
To just @#$%& and pay tax while we all run blind

I hear em scream we’ve had enough
But they bluff and talk a good game
The next day come and they still the same
It’s like they don’t even understand what I’m sayin

Look where it's heading
The people scream but we're getting nowhere
We're aiding, abetting the politicians' system
Cover the constitution
We're sleeping
We're letting them get away with the steady manipulation of policy
Look at the petty, shitty example we're setting
While we party confetti falls on the unheard innocent, the sick, and the sweating but the profits we're netting convinces all that we're ready to just shut it down, turn it off.

yeah.. that tune is why I asked the question. I had listened to them for a about a year and a half to see what they were about.. nice tunes.. this one is a banger though.. great message for sure.

I've liked The Movement since I heard "Set Sail" way back in 2011 or so.
