Lifetones - For A Reason

Charles Bullen (This Heat`s guitarist) started listening to some reggae music after a DJ friend of his turned him on to it. after the Deceit sessions he decided to start a project based on these caribbean rhythms and took it to a whole new level. inspiring lyrics, epic ras drum tracks, weird/beautiful harmonies and some chant-style voices that you would hear on any This Heat record. this is some serious stuff. its a rare listen at first but it sucks you in.
