THE SLAG BRICK PROJECT- ELEPHANT 7” (Slag Brick Project SBP01)
The Slag Brick Project is a new Finnish band playing old school traditional ska-reggae and boy do they hit the sound right! The band features: Rasmus Pailos: Clarinet/ Melodica/xylophone/Dub fx., Arttu Launis:Tenor Saxophone/Flute, Joseph Miettinen: Trombone, Olli Kari:Jalava-marimba/Vibraphone/Gongs/Perx, Niila Rantala:Guitar-Steelpan, Sami Virkkala:Bass, Sami Hagelberg:Drums, and Surya Daniel:Percussion. Side A is the track Elephant (See youtube link below to hear the track). It is a 3 min long ska track with marimba, steel pan drums and lots of other percussion and groove. Flip the 7” over for the track called Riverbed, which is really going back to the sound of yesterday with a totally stoned reggae groove but with steel drum, melodica and flute. Awesome track.. I am not sure how you get a hold of this 7” but contact the band via Facebook.
