[REGGAE PSYCH POP] Goddamnit, somebody’s got to make reggae hip again, and if it takes a brother-sister combo from Chicago, then so be it! As Wild Belle, Elliot and Natalie Bergman embellish the patented Jamaican upstroke with chilled-out indie-pop flourishes, bits of pale-faced soul and plenty of burly sax riffs. Isles, the group’s 2012 debut, is probably too chilled-out for its own good, and maybe a tad too twee, also, but its embrace of tropical rhythms is pure and well-studied enough to differentiate the album from other bands that aim for the same sound but end up at the door of Jack Johnson beach-fire territory. It ain’t roots, but if it helps rescue reggae from the hula-hooping, fairy wing-wearing, body-painting set—just a little bit—then I’m all for it.
