En route back to the salt mines this morning, the Fates of Music bestowed upon me the following in random fashion: Anthrax with Public Enemy, Iron Maiden, Catherine Wheel, Staind, The Bravery, Julian Cope, The Suicide Machines, Jane’s Addiction, Miss Geo and the Metrics, Almost Astronauts, High Ceilings and this band…Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah.
artist: High Ceiling | genre: reggae | label: unsigned
We first introduced the Froglix Faithful to this super cool reggae (aka High Ceiling) band from the woodlands of Washington state just about a year ago when they were touring in support of their latest album entitled Illusions. Well, they are still gigging so we certainly hope our friends on the left coast have been able able to check these cats out live…but if not, here’s a vid for you!
genre: reggae | rock | funk
I can see it now, the mighty Sasquatch, just minding his own business, is traipsing around the forests of the Pacific Northwest and stumbles upon a group of unsuspecting campers grooving to the sound stylings of Shelton, WA’s High Ceiling. At first, he’d be pissed (damn Paparazzi chasing him around again) but then, after catching an earful of HC, he’d settle right down and commence to grooving right along side his evolved brethren and sistas!
With Illusion, their 2nd studio offering, Trail Black, brother Joel, Frank Fox, Gabe Olson and Bob Wake embark on a musical journey that is sure to captivate the hearts of roots enthusiasts as well as the jam band devotees. Theirs is a true fusion that draws inspiration from reggae, rock, and funk, with just a hint of trance thrown in for good measure. Wanna get away? Pop this disc in and enjoy the ride!
