Bedouin Soundclash - Light The Horizon -2010-
(Reggae, Dub, Soul)

From: Toronto

The band that has been bringing Jamaica to Canada for years is at it again on Light The Horizon. A hiatus last year threatened the future of this incredible band but they are back with a new lineup, a renewed vigor and a new label. “It’s just all kind of a new beginning,” bass player Eon Sinclair says. “We made a lot of changes, and there is now just a positive energy to everything we do. I feel like we’re slightly more progressive musically, and our position is improved on everything from the way we release our records to our health.” New drummer Sekou Lumumba adds a new texture and tightness that does not seem like it was there before. Bedouin has always been able to create catchy tunes, but this album finds the boys hitting another gear in their song making. The band's fourth album is their most creative and intelligent effort yet. Channeling the likes of The Clash and The Police, Bedouin Soundclash has put out an almost perfect album. Light The Horizon is a progression of the band's evolution combined with elements of singer Jay Malinowski's adventurous solo album. Bedouin Soundclash are an unmatched talent in the music biz, and with each album they grow and branch out, creating new and exciting tunes.
