23min of Ska : Red Licorice

23skaredlicorice23min of Ska is back! Back with a new look, back with a new theme and back with a brand new episode! Oh, hells yeah! This is a great one, for sure. I want to point out that the second song is a brand new track from the Anchorage from their new EP due out next month. After hearing this I can’t wait! Of course, that isn’t the only quality track being brought to your ears. We also have some fantastic pretty new songs from the Kingstons and King Kong 4 that have been running through my head. Not to mention that Eric Daino track, which is rad, but so is the whole album! This is all mixed in with quality songs from the Magnetics, Contenders and the Dendrites that must be heard, before ending it with a sweet cover by Half Past Two that, well, I put them up to, and they nailed it!
