Fresh Herbs

The Herbaliser has long been a force in U.K. hip-hop. Led by Jake Wherry and Ollie Teeba, the group — which now includes vocalist Jessica Darling — explores its jazz-funk roots more prominently on its seventh studio album, Same as It Never Was. The result is a more organic-sounding hip-hop aesthetic, where traditional instruments are given fresh life. Trombones perfectly envelop guest rapper Jean Grae on "Street Karma (A Cautionary Tale)," while the tuba and accordion take center stage with Canadian MC More or Les.
