As a psychedelic music lover, myself, I appreciate the overlap reggae has over general rock and the psych scene. Rich with its own musical history, even including its occasional blend into both punk and flower power narratives, reggae is here to brighten your day!

Sly & Robbie vs Roots Radics - “The Dub Battle”
The Specials - “Work in Progress”

Throwback to my fourth grade geography teacher who would play Bob Marley and early Beatles on-loop every single day. She was a punk, and I mean that with all my love and genuine respect.
