The Black Seeds announce their long-awaited sixth studio album, 'Fabric!'
While firmly based in the island grooves that inspired the birth of the band nearly two decades ago, New Zealand’s The Black Seeds create a sound that casts a wide net, layering funk, soul, Afrobeat, and other eclectic elements over their dub/reggae foundations.
After a couple of years touring the world and juggling festival slots, The Black Seeds focused their efforts throughout 2016 and 2017 on the recording of their new studio album. The sessions for 'Fabric' took place at acclaimed engineer/producer and long-time Black Seeds collaborator, Lee Prebble's Wellington studio The Surgery. The result is a twelve-track album of bold, groove-heavy tunes that demonstrate the multiple facets of what makes The Black Seeds who they are, set over a classic dub/reggae foundation.
Overall, there is a grand expansiveness that sets over the tracklist, allowing for each song to breathe and exist on its own, but also comfortably within the context of the wider picture. This shows The Black Seeds' limitless creative energy for what it is - always moving forward and progressing without compromising the soul of who they are, while always remaining conscious of the current world around them.
