By: Jack Anderson

As founder of Texas’ first reggae band The Lotions and frontman of Austin’s premiere reggae outfit Mau-Mau Chaplains, it’s safe to say that  Alan Moe Monsarrat‘s lead a pretty IRIE life. And in light of all the heavy lifting Monsarrat’s been doing over the course of several decades and half a thousand shows, this Caribbean-style creator has just released his first solo album in a half century.

And with the excitement of election finally coming to a close you can just kick back and enjoy the growth with Agriculture, planting the seed now with “Turn The Tide”!

But honestly, all talent aside, for some local artists we often have to dig around to find something that’s actually airwave worthy. Daniel Fears, […]
