25. The Green

Green, 2010

Listening to the hooky, immersive roots reggae of this debut, you’d never guess that 70 percent of the album was recorded in guitarist JP Kennedy’s bedroom. “We would just jam in my bedroom and record stuff,” he says. “We had this vibration, this brotherhood.” This is feel-good music, for sure, but it’s anchored by an attention to Hawaii realities. “We sing about what we see around us, good and bad,” says member Zion Thompson. “We like music with substance.”
