With the support of Easy Star Records, their fans, fellow musicians and now world-famous Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords, their last album "Solid Ground" (on Easy Star) received rave reviews; described by JamBaseas "one of the best, forward-minded reggae releases this year...the forefront of reggae" and by The Huffington Post as "a damn fine record…the most inventive thing out of the South Pacific in decades."
