Raggae/Hip-Hop Group The Olés release full length "Rise"

A few weeks ago I stumbled into Dargans and heard the sound of upbeat melodies with the rhythms of upstroke guitars. I caught the tail end of this bands set and I wondered why I had not heard of them before. Then it all came back to me, I had seen this band before at a party in Isla Vista about five years ago. In a town that tends to be transient, I was pleasantly surprised to see that The Olés are thriving and are still Santa Barbara based. That night, I had an opportunity to speak briefly with a band member who informed me that they had a new album coming out.

So here it is, the 2nd full-length release of Rise by The Olés produced by Rebelution drummer Wesley Finley. You can stream below or visit their Bandcamp here.
