The Uplifter Blog : New album in the making... 

The Uplifter forthcoming album is shaping up nicely... My cousin Steve Wright (from Feelgood Culture) and I have been laying down track ideas, and for the first time in a while I have picked up a pen and notepad and started writing. This album feels quite different from the previous Uplifter 12" vinyl release. It feels more of a 'back to the roots' of where The Uplifter came from... and I'm excited about it. 

The previous (vinyl) release was created specifically with sound system culture in mind whereas the album has a much more open canvas with genres spanning from one drop reggae to ska as well as some experimental tunes... which to this day, I'm not entirely sure what genre they would be classed as, and in all honesty, I don't mind. They just feel right. We've recorded more live instruments too which is where our heart lies - it sounds organic and 'wooden'... in a good way. There is definitely some links to our Irish roots with Irish flutes being featured and some sound bites taken over the years of our family and friends. 

This album has been a while in the making but it is happening and I'm excited about it :) 

Have a listen to the link to get a rough idea of what the new album is sounding like...
