On November 13, 2015, Easy Star Records will release The Big Smoke, the sophomore album from UK-based band Gentleman’s Dub Club. The Big Smoke is one of the finest complete recordings that I have heard this year, with incredible moments on each track- from the darker dubbed out instrumental “Enter The Chamber” to the pop ladened chorus of “See Them.” The album’s listening experience (in its entirety) is a pleasure and stands as a timely progression for reggae’s melodic subgenre, future roots music, drawing favorable comparisons to New Zealand’s The Black Seeds and Fat Freddy’s Drop.
