In five short tracks, any listener of 77 Jefferson’s new EP will feel like they just experienced the projection of a great relationship
The Midwest isn’t an area particularly known for manufacturing notable reggae music, especially not of the island or California reggae variety. However, the 77 Jefferson boys out of Kansas City, Missouri like to prove that mentality wrong time and time again. The band’s new EP Let Me Know was released July 7, 2014 and is an overnight success – catapulting to #5 on the iTunes top-selling reggae album charts within 24 hours, and deservedly so.
In five short tracks, any listener of 77 Jefferson’s new EP will feel like they just experienced the projection of a great relationship – from the beginning to an end all too soon. Let me elaborate: tracks one, two and three are songs that make everyone who’s ever been in love yearn to never not be; then track four comes along, bringing a change in tonality with a message of self-respect above all else when doubting oneself or another; and then the saddened, yet hopeful finale track declaring as one love comes to an end, another may begin thereafter. Each track is music to sway, lay and lead yourself astray to – stemming primarily from a consistent heavy bass line and counterbalanced with sweet lyrical melodies. Any fan of reggae cannot deny 77 Jefferson from getting the recognition they deserve for this pristine compilation of sound mixing and thematic progression.
