The Green – Ways & Means

The Green’s 2010 self-titled debut was a break-out of gargantuan proportions in the reggae community.

Now The Green has released a follow up that album with their 2nd full length album titled Ways & Means via Easy Star Records. The group is joined by touring bassist/producer Brad Watanabe and touring drummer/producer Leslie Ludiazo.

Whiskey Avengers – Dead Man Rockin’
Release Date: October 25th, 2011
Presiding in the dormant pits of the San Francisco Bay Area, renegade Reggae and Rocksteady outfit the Whiskey Avengers have released their third full length album ‘Dead Man Rockin.’ Staying true to their origins of traditional Jamaican style Ska and Rocksteady mixed with West-Coast Reggae, they have seamlessly infused a new blend of Rock, Soul and Folk Americana that lends itself to multiple generations of castaways and bad apples. They have teamed up with legendary studio engineer Michael Rosen to spit shine their sound creating a seemingly unstoppable independent musical force. The album was recorded at Roofrock Japantown Studio in the bay area of northern CA.
