Push 'N Shove

Push 'N Shove, Hepcat's fourth album, was recorded in L.A. in 2000, but much of the time, it sounds like it could have been recorded in Kingston in the 1960s. Most of the music on this rewarding, if derivative, CD isn't fast enough to be called ska; rather, many of the songs recall rock steady, an early form of reggae. From a remake of Brenton Wood's 1960s soul hit "Gimme Little Sign" to Hepcat's own material, Push 'N Shove often takes you back to a time when Jamaican greats like Desmond Dekker, the Wailers, and the Paragons were being influenced by the great soul music that was coming out of Detroit, Chicago, and Philadelphia
