Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

On P-Nuckle's latest album, it's obvious to anyone who's followed the band over the years that the members have matured remarkably. Two years in the making, Stand Up shows the group, which has undergone several lineup changes since its inception, outgrowing its Sublime-influenced party-time reggae rock and delving into more serious reggae/dancehall cuts with elements of hip-hop. And while there are a few politically slanted numbers, P-Nuckle strives to keep a positive vibe overall. One minor misstep: The bulk of the reggae-inflected songs are similar in tempo, so the addition of two pop-punk songs ("Place Called Home" and "Yesterday") breaks up the continuity somewhat. Other than that, this is a solid effort from one of the area's more respected reggae acts.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
