Biography

Audiodub, a reggae-rock trio out of San Francisco has crafted what needs to go down as one of the best reggae-rock records of 2009. Seamlessly employing classic techniques previously used by No Doubt, Reel Big Fish and Sublime while maintaining its own sound and never mimicking any one band’s style. This is not an easy feat in today’s music world where a lot of music just runs together, but the guys in Audiodub use it to explore its own sound, and I can’t help but love it.

Depending on who you are and what you like, you may either think this is a good record or a great one. Audiodub has all the classic reggae-rock sounds for you people that fear change, but for those of us that love musical exploration within a genre, this is pretty nice.



To start us off I feel I must mention the title track Daytime TV, this is a great song for you classic reggae-rock lovers. The band name drops every god awful daytime TV show that you love to hate, every sitcom from the past 30 years that is on syndication on the most random channels and a line about getting it on with Judge Judy. But the coup de gras has to be at 2:14 seconds when in the background you can hear the sample of a Billy Mays commercial who as you all know died very recently. Rest in Peace my pitchman friend.



Moving on to one of the most infectious tracks, Save Your Soul, this is not infectious in the way that reggae is. This is infectious in the way that you can’t get it out of your head. Almost indie, very KEXP (radio station in Seattle, among the top 5 independent radio stations in the country).
