Green River Vibe

From the opening cut ("Calling of the Angels") on Sun Comes Up, Green River Vibe's debut, it's pretty clear where the quintet is coming from: About halfway into a rock-infused reggae groove, the tune breaks down into a hip-hop interlude. The players, who all met while studying music at the University of Colorado Denver, have a good handle on reggae, rock and hip-hop, and they do a capable job of both fusing and separating the genres here. Steering into Sublime territory at times, they also take a far-out psychedelic trip on "So Be at Peace," with sitar and didgeridoo. And although they dig into some solid reggae-based riffs, a lot of the cuts are similarly paced, which makes the album feel monotonous at times.
