Keep On Pushing guarantees to get the country smiling, serving up a simmering selection of original roots-rock-reggae vibes from Wellington downbeat sweethearts The Black Seeds. With influences drawn from the rich history of Jamaican music, and a uniquely Antipodean outlook, The Black Seeds continue a time-honoured tradition of home grown Aotearoa roots music of the highest grade, following in the footsteps of their trailblazing forefathers The Herbs.Formed in 1998, The Black Seeds soon stood out as Wellington’s ultimate good time party band, setting local joints jumping with their irie grooves and smooth skanking moves. A regular fixture on Wellington’s live music scene, the band have headlined many local festivals including the Cuba St Carnival, and the annual One Love Waitangi Day celebrations (honouring reggae superstar Bob Marley).Recorded by resident Black Seeds sound engineer “Dr” Lee Prebble at Wellington’s Marmalade Studios, Keep On Pushing collects live favourites and deep dubs from the group’s well worn-in repertoire. Rich instrumentation and a full sound (fleshed out by a multitude of added musicians) ride a positive vibe throughout, bringing out the best of The Black Seeds’ sing-along hits and adding texture to dubwise version excursions.
