Formed from the ashes of the progressive punk rock-reggae band Isle 3, Natural Incense’s debut disc is a five-song ride that doesn’t fail to satisfy. From the opening track, “And I Dream,” to the closing tune, “Meant to Be,” Natural Incense offers a reggae-rock fusion that easily induces a meditative and philosophical state of being in the best tradition of socially conscious reggae. Aside from the Burning Spear and Steel Pulse influences, a bit of the Chili Peppers’ funky spirit and Slightly Stoopid’s genre-mixing game keep these dub tunes flowing nicely. The band has just been signed to an independent Canadian label, I in Eye Records, so we can no doubt expect more irie tunes soon.
