New Free Digital Single from 2000 Tons of TNT: "Harvest Moon" b/w "Wonky"

(Review by Steve Shafer)

To ring in the New Year, early reggae powerhouse 2000 Tons of TNT have released an excellent free digital single containing two new instrumental tracks: "Harvest Moon" b/w "Wonky."

"Harvest Moon" is a super get-up-on-your-feet funky slice of skinhead reggae (a must for fans of acts like The Caroloregians). "Wonky" is more on the rocksteady tip and incorporates some of "Auld Lang Syne" (plus a touch of Harry J Allstars' "Liquidator") in its fuzzed-out hammond organ riff. Both tracks portend more great things to come from this San Diego, CA act (in fact, these two cuts were taken from November/December 2012 recording sessions for their second, as of yet unnamed, album--which should be a knock-out). For your free download of these songs, go here.

Lastly, it should be noted that "Harvest Moon" and "Wonky" are dedicated to the memory of the recently departed reggae great Lloyd Charmers. They've certainly done him proud.
