[REGGAE] San Diego’s Tribal Seeds have spent seven years and five records cultivating a sound that singles them out from typical reggae redundancy, combining the roots sounds of Marley with a dash of Eek-a-Mouse’s stony staccato, a slice or two of Spearhead cheese, a little bit of ska-bordering rock and the requisite feigned Jamaican accent. That combination serves the group well, creating a spacier sound that’s still rooted in the music’s origins, while also serving to help the sextet avoid the trappings of the genre—except for the Faux-maican accent, which is to reggae what fake Brit accents are to pop punk and is no less puzzling for its commonality.
