Los Billtones & Agent Flipper
The band from the Züricher Oberland seems to have fallen out of time, because Los Billtones have a very precise idea of how they want to sound—like the Jamaican rocksteady formations from the 60s and 70s, the time when ska was gradually giving way to early reggae music with rich riddims, soulful singing, and big feelings. Their inspiration comes directly from the rocksteady greats of the time like The Paragons, Keith & Tex, and the young Bob Marley.
The band tells stories that are personal and yet timeless. With three-part vocals, Los Billtones sing about unfulfilled love, longing, and hope, while organ, trombone, and guitar outdo each other with heartbreaking melodies.
