San Francisco’s Extra Classic wanted to get completely authentic with their modern take on the sounds of classic Jamaican reggae, so they recorded all the tunes for their new album on 8-track tape using vintage ‘60s ands ‘70s recording equipment. The result is the new album, Your Light Like White Lightning, Your Light Like a Laser Beam, releasing 27 September via Manimal Vinyl. The performing band is made up of Adrianne Verhoeven (vocals/keys), Alex deLanda (bass), Josh Adams (drums), Dustin Kinsey (guitar) and David Wetzel (keyboards), with Verhoeven (formerly of the Anniversary) and de Landa (who has worked with the Donkeys and the Papercuts) as the leading force behind the music. Today we bring you the premiere of the new song “You Can’t Bring Me Down (Discomix)”.
