Royal City Riot - Coast To Coast (CD)
Release Date: 07/13/10
RCR return with more soul ska & rocksteady from Long Island, NY. Rougher and tougher than ever!
Royal City Riot's newest release and their first with Megalith Records. Straight out of the shoot on the first track, the band explodes in your ears with high energy soul music fully filled with ska roots. Solid horns and a steady organ rhythm backbeat. The sound is like dirty polish! The band has taken some turtle wax and shined up their sound but they used an old dirty rag found on the car garage floor and managed to make things dirtier than before! (that's a compliment by the way;) ). The album has a nice solid 12 tracks that showcase the bands versatile stylings and depth of musical knowledge. Going from rocking soul to early rock 'n' roll, a bit of rocksteady and awesome open air ska grooves. If you are already a fan of modern bands like The Pinstripes, The Dendrites, The Pepper Pots and Deal's Gone Bad, and classic bands like The Skatalites, Chuck Berry and Otis Redding, then you're are already a fan of Royal City Riot, you just don't know it yet!
