Dead Flowers 02:59


Who knows what the future holds ... but up until a few months ago it had become a tradition that when the Slackers played their annual 3-Day engagement at Reggie's on Chicago's South Side, we were able to steal Vic Ruggiero away for a hang and a recording session. What's even nicer is that no two sessions have been similar ... the latest being no exception.

During the most recent get-up we held back in November 2019, we were lucky enough to capture the haunting and delicate vocal stylings of Lauren Napier over what-would -become tuff reggae riddims, transforming two classic country and rock tunes into bubbly feel-good Jamaican inspired tracks.

Please dig the music! But also know that all money from purchases are going straight to the artists to support them during these unprecedented times!
