New and Improv'd

Reggae is only the beginning

When I listen to the trio's record, I wish the songs had the time to spread out like they do when the band plays them onstage. Studio recording is obviously a different format, with different restrictions, and Wade tells me he wanted the album's songs to stick to a three-minute pop format.

"There's no jam-band mentality when we're in the studio. Three minutes — it gets to the hook, gets in and gets out, and it's over with," Wade says. "When we play live, it's hard to tell. If people get up and dance, we'll extend it to 10 minutes if we feel like it."

I prefer the 10-minute versions.
