Blue eyed reggae skank straight outta Chicago

Aaahhhh, blue eyed reggae. Preserve of luminaries such as UB40, The Police, Ace of Base and that titan of ‘riddim’ Peter Andre. So what to make of the exceedingly blue eyed Wild Belle and their hippy trippy dub indie? Honestly- I want to hate this. I really do. But, honestly, I’m kinda feeling it. It’s got a weird anodyne vocal delivery and some nifty horn work, and somehow side steps sounding like Fleetwood Mac as imagined by a gap year crusty, to sound instead like Fleetwood Mac had they skipped all the anal cocaine ingestion nonsense and just settled on a nice friendly bong.
