23min of Ska : Accelerator

23skaCOASTER7This episode is insane, and fast, and punky, and silly. You’ve been warned if you’re not into that kind of thing. It’s got a lot of new bands that I think stand shoulder to shoulder with the more “classic” ska/punk bands presented here.

…and oh yeah, a new Reel Big Fish song. Go nuts!

23min of Ska : Dark Pretzel

23skaCOASTER3Ok, sure, a Dark Pretzel ride isn’t technically a roller coaster. It’s something else. It’s in the family for sure. Kinda like this episode.  All these songs are for sure in the ska family, but they mess around with the style, push and pull away from the beat, but there’s a touch of ska in each. I hate to brag, but I really like this episode… a whole lot. I hope you do too!

23min of Ska : Pints to a Gallon

23skaBEERSBang, this episode gets off with a real start! Hey, it’s a brand new song from the Backyard Superheroes off their brand new EP! It really kicks off this episode thematically too! That’s right, all these songs have a thing or two in common. It’s cool, you don’t have to guess, all the songs feature drinking in some form. Not saying it is good, not always even the focus of the song in question, but drinks, they will be had! And hell, why not, in America it is a holiday weekend, so pop corks and twist the caps, and have a great time!
