Skankin' in Saitama

Last week, Spanish soul. This week, Japanese reggae, courtesy of Home Grown, the self-styled "No. 1 Reggae Band in Japan". As I am not in a position to disprove that statement I will take their word for it.

Both of today's tracks come from their eponymous 2002 album which features a plethora of guest artists including the great Jamaican sax player Dean Fraser. On today's first track, which Google translates as "Ask The Stars", we hear from H-Man and Neo."Oasis" features seven guests in total, including one called Moomin. I don't know which one he or she is.

"Oasis" - Home Grown

It turns out Neil Young is a big fan.
