10 Ft. Ganja Plant is back with a follow-up to last year’s critically acclaimed instrumental album, 10 Deadly Shots Vol. II (“their strongest to date,” according to The Wire). Skycatcher sees ‘The Plant’ doing what they do best… infusing that old school roots groove into timeless songs and sounds. This elusive group of reggae purists, who hail from the Northeast US and are rumored to share members with heralded reggae group John Brown’s Body, have captured the original 70’s reggae spirit in a way that few other modern reggae bands have been able to do.
ROIR, no stranger to classic dub and reggae, signed the band a dozen years ago and have released a catalog of albums that reveal influences of ’70s roots, from the close vocal harmonies of the Meditations to the dark, bass-heavy productions of Black Ark-era Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry.
