about

Review from @thegrapevinyl Ontario, Canada:

“Burnt effortlessly merges a complex concoction of complementary genres/styles, but the stand-outs are ska (early), reggae, punk rock, some psychedelic vibes, with rap and others thrown in. The messages are very much to do with realizing the simple changes to your mindset to get you out of the hamster wheel. Daydreaming about a better world and then manifesting it! The songs are immediately memorable, groovy and tone-setting. We needed more of this in the collection! Perfect tunes for vinyl, because you don’t want to cherry pick on this one, you just want to drop the needle and vibe.”

released June 17, 2017

For those of you who don't yet know us, BURNT is a 100% independent band from California. We dabble in various styles of rebel music, from ska to reggae, hip hop, punk rock, high-life and so much more. We've been a band since 2003, and have independently produced seven albums and two mixtapes of original material, and this year we embarked on a recording project and Kickstarter campaign to produce Majestic Walrus.

In November 2016 we started recording this project, and like most BURNT albums this album has been a collaboration with many of our amazingly talented musical friends. This includes members of The Debonaires from Riverside, California, B-JAH from the band Beyond Rhythm, legendary hip hop artist Karmic Basis, Michael "Miguel" Happoldt from the Long Beach, CA based band Perro Bravo, Nathan McCoy AKA Rivel contributed on tracks all the way from the UK, and many more talented friends... special shout-out to our amazing friend and artist Jimmy Ovadia for contributing to the album artwork with a beautifully painted walrus on our kick drum head!

Once we were in the final stages of music production we launched a Kickstarter campaign to get support with pressing our very first vinyl record! To all of our supporters and fans who contributed, we cannot thank you enough for backing our hard work with your hard earned dollars.

This is the result-- our epic, double album, filled with twenty new BURNT songs that span the breadth of the burnt consciousness. Sit back, turn it up, and soak in the sounds of the Majestic Walrus...
