Let It Go

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andrew Leahey
Mixing reggae influences with political calls to action, State Radio offer up another slice of northeastern jam-funk with the band's third album, Let It Go. Released in 2007, Year of the Crow was a time-specific record, its songs targeting everything from President Bush's torture allegations to war-torn Sudan, but Let It Go is broader in scope, emphasizing general themes of toleration and peace without pointing many fingers at singular groups.

Mixing reggae influences with political calls to action, State Radio offer up another slice of northeastern jam-funk with the band's third album, Let It Go. Released in 2007, Year of the Crow was a time-specific record, its songs targeting everything from President Bush's torture allegations to war-torn Sudan, but Let It Go is broader in scope, emphasizing general themes of toleration and peace without pointing many fingers at singular groups. As usual, the Cambridge natives embrace an amalgamation of genres -- most prominently reggae, ska, and punk -- and lace the mixture with touches of roots rock and Jamaican inflections.
