The B-Side Dubs are dub-influenced for sure, but catchy lead single “Hazy Days” opens with reverberating guitar before the melody begins and the rock-reggae takes over. Lyrically, it’s a tale of naive ‘colorful’ adventure; musically the hook and breakdown are both upbeat and sufficiently funky. “Light” features a skanking rhythm section, while closer “Sunrise & High Tides” is smooth summer-time porch music. Buffa-Dub is a nice EP, poppy in a comforting, rather than worn-out, way; hopefully their upcoming full-length will continue to balance their multitude of influences with grace. “Hazy Days” is available on Soundcloud, or you can grab the whole album for free via the band’s website.
