Product Type: VINYL LP
Vinyl LP pressing. A sonic journey baselined by reggae beats, pop-reggae act Hirie's new album Dreamer at turns celebrates the bold, joyful, and even messy impulses that drive the female experience. "This album is about raw honesty," front woman Trish Jetton says. "I feel like I was braver with exploring my emotional state and how that swings back and forth - allowing myself to be brutally honest." Chilled-out Mexi-Cali reggae cut "I'm Messed Up" serves as the album's first single while the pair of related tracks, the ruminating mid-tempo "Better as Is" and the soulful "Stay With Me" likewise ride the ups and downs - the acceptable imperfections - of her relationships. Trish penned the majority of Dreamer's tracks with The Drive - aka songwriters Mark Merthe and Nate Evans - then enlisted Danny Kalb (Ben Harper, Beck) to produce. "'Put It Down' has this supercool gypsy vibe," she says. "I met Chali 2na of Jurassic 5 randomly in Mexico, and he laid down a verse. It was one of those songs that just came together." Other tunes like, "I'm Messed Up," "Message in a Bottle," "The Way You Roll," and "Reason to Fly" were collaborative efforts shared between band members Andres Flores, Chris del Camino, and Andrew McKee.
