23min of Ska : Lemon Curd

23skaLEMONCURDUnlike last week, I’m keeping it pretty traditional as far as the sound goes. I mean, there’s still some room for other genres to worm into the ska beat, but it certainly isn’t punk or rock this time. It’s a laid-back kind of sound this week. I hope you all enjoy. Oh, and take care of each other out there, it’s been a rough one this week.

23min of Ska : Klarion the Witch Boy

23skaKLARIONBeing and young and rebellious comes more naturally to some than it does to others. I personally became more rebellious as I got older, but longed to be more of a character like Klarion that goes against the wishes of his family and town to seek out what is beyond the society he grew up in. As serious as those ambitions are he isn’t afraid to be seen as weird as he laughs all the way to a new life. We can all make these sorts of changes in our lives, we just have to roll the dice…

23min of Ska : And Also Featuring

What do we all need. Ok, except for food, drinks and good music, what do we all need? Friends, that’s right, friends. So why do anything alone when we can do it with some good friends. And if we have enough, why not call over a few more? That’s exactly what was happening here, some great groups producing some great music with that little something extra. That is, an extra special guest on the song.
