The Aggrolites’ third release, Reggae Hit L.A., continues the relatively young L.A. band’s deft interpretation of classic reggae sounds. Hit L.A. was issued shortly after the release of Tim Armstrong’s A Poet’s Life, on which the Aggrolites appeared as Armstrong’s back-up band. Any reggae fan — both of ‘60s classic roots reggae and everything following — should have the Aggrolites in their collection. Hit L.A. is full of pure, expertly played music that is part homage and part celebration of reggae and its history; influences such as Lee “Scratch” Perry and his Upsetters, Toots & The Maytals, the Melodians and other classic Trojan Records artists come through loud and clear, but in a way that allows the Aggrolites’ own collective voice to shine. Full of rumbling bass lines, chirping horns, and gurgling organs, there are accents of blues, soul and ska throughout. Would-be critics will find it difficult to dismiss the infectious, footwork-inducing title track, the vintage soaked “You Got 5,” the fantastic surf-guitar inflected “Rhyme & Light,” or the sitar-peppered “Baldhead Rooster.” The ska-tinged “Faster Bullet” and “We Came to Score” are pure joy.
