Unlike other pasty-skinned reggae revivalists, the guys in Westbound Train prefer their rasta music a little on the moody side. The seven-piece Boston band eschews the partytime ska most of its contemporaries play, in favor of a slow, druggy dub style. Everything the group learned about keeping it real on their first two albums -- never rush the beat, make everything woozy in the background, and sing like you’ve been stoned for the past three days -- hits its apex on their latest album, Transitions. It’s come-down music, played with skill and reverence. These guys may not get audiences jumping feverishly in place while reformed band nerds blow their trombones onstage, but they’re much more interesting.
