Dooby Logic (vocals/guitar), Frank Frazza (guitar/vocals), Chris Clark (bass/guitar) and Jacob Cambra (drums) are The Higher Logic Project. The band combines reggae, funk and rock into high energy songs on their self-titled album The Higher Logic Project.
I was listening to the songs and thought a better explanation is that this is a party band. I’ve been to two weddings and one house party and heard similar music coming from those bands. People love to hear this music live. There is just no denying that. This is unpretentious, good vibes music that is visceral. It's all about the grooves.
The Higher Logic Project isn’t a heady band. There isn't the existential dread you experience when listening to Radiohead or the ethereal beauty that may wash over you while listening to Bon Iver. The songs are catchy and fun. Take for example “Down The Block” which is built on a classic Reggae groove or the horn heavy and optimistic “Realize.”
The band switches up the mood on “Find a Way” and sounded a bit like Rusted Root. Great bass line. Perhaps the funkiest song that is pure party music is “Searching For A Friend.” I enjoyed the female vocalist on the very chill “Mountains” and Jack Johnson inspired “Twisted Inside.”
One thing I can say is that the album is pretty cohesive. It really is an album you could put on at a party and play from beginning to end. You may get a couple of pretentious hipster types complaining that the music isn’t intellectual enough but most people will enjoy themselves.
Overall, this is an album that does have a time and place. On top of that the production and songwriting is top notch. Recommended.
