Alborosie – Strolling

We’re going to go out on a limb and say that Alborosie is probably our favourite Sicilian reggae artist ever… No disrespect meant to anyone else from this southern Italian island who’s flying the reggae flag, but Puppa Albo just owns his sound and continues to bring out heavy reggae rollers. New track “Strolling” is no different.

Teaming up with the apparently ever present Protoje on this mellow little mover, there are horns, a healthy splash of reverb, some pretty out there synth screeches and Alborose’s gravelly vocal delivery. All of this comes up trumps to our ears. One gripe if we may, a fade out!? Come on, it’s not 1985 anymore.
