There are less non-Jamaican reggae artists that made me listening to more than once. I I should name The Clash, The Specials or The Selector you might know what I mean. But a few weeks ago I got aware of an band based in Queens named The Frightnrs that made a very own and great interpretation of vintage rocksteady and early reggae that is worth to be listened to. All the songs from their debut album Nothing More To Say from last year is ruled by the falsetto of lead singer Dan Klein. Some might say it is retro but if today a band is able to make songs in this tradition I would call it great.
