ALBUM REVIEW: "On the Radio" 

Noble Vibes

"On the Radio"


Man, this is some rockin' rocksteady. Rochester's roots-reggae renegades, Noble Vibes, have kicked into high gear with "On the Radio," its follow-up to its eponymous 2014 release. Groovin' under the big reggae umbrella, Noble Vibes still ventures out into the neighboring strains of dub, dancehall, and Ska — done more Studio One-style than the flipped acceleration the punks have co-opted. This record is a double edged sword: it can pick you up or mellow you out often within the confines of the same spin. It's enlightening and downright cool with a universal appeal. Something for you and me.
