There’s nothing quite like German reggae.
This video is simultaneously disturbing, intriguing and fun as hell. The same can be said for the groovy “Wonderful Life“, a song entirely in English. This 1998 “German reggae-dancehall band” is an international postmodern pastiche of styles, and their un-classifiable-ness can make them a fun, if jolting, addition to ones iPod. I’ve been jamming to “Aufstehn” and the video for “Augenbling” is blingy indeed. Seeed makes me want to bop my dreadlocked head in a Berlin club while enjoying a nice Oktoberfest.
I wish I could sing along.
