Here we all listeners, at the end of another set of 23 episodes! That’s right, this is the last scoop of ice cream. These last 23 weeks have had some real ups and downs, but I think we all found a ton of great music along the way despite any other troubles in the world. I know I certainly found a bunch of stuff to groove and jump up and down to! But I’m seeing lists of the top ska albums of 2017 coming out and I’m seeing there’s a whole bunch more I missed! Could there be too much ska out there? …nah!
Check it out ska fans, another fresh episode of 23min of Ska with some really really new music in it for you! We have a Half Past Two song from their upcoming EP! Also, this episode features two brand new covers songs released in the last week! The first from Lockstep covering the Clash and then Cynamatics covering Choking Victim! So much newness, can you even stand it?

Yo, listen up, after last weeks over stuff and frantic episode, I thought we could take it a little easier this week. Geez, I hope you agree, I certainly think it’s another awesome episode! Listen up and enjoy yourself out there, it’s later than you think!
What do I know about chakras? Not too much, I’m really hoping a whitey like me isn’t offending any Indians whose religious practice includes the chakras. Come to think of it, I didn’t worry about offending Christians when I did theme episodes on the Deadly Sins… well, retroactively, I hope I didn’t upset any Christians. At most the chakras were a spring board to present 7 songs or artists that in some way relate to what each chakra represents. It isn’t perfect, but it was fun to try and figure out, and hell, all of this music is worth hearing anyway, so stop reading and get listening!
Bam! The ska hits, they just keep coming! They’re like something that you just can’t do with out. Sounds familiar. Anyway, what do we have hear? Some more awesome and fresh tracks! We have a brand new track from Half Past Two’s forthcoming EP and a track from Chainska Brassika’s forthcoming album! Woah! Too much killer new stuff! Also that Bumpin Uglies track just came out last week, and that track from the Kings, just two weeks ago! It is seriously good stuff! Not to say that the rest is old and ok, no no my friends, it is all good! Trust me, this is one episode that you cannot do without!
The original idea for this episode was for each song to be from a solo act. From there I said “No! It should be all acoustic!” Now, to be fair, I didn’t make sure that they are all exactly acoustic songs, but they mostly are, so, you know, here’s a (mostly?) acoustic set of ska songs for you all to unplug and unwind to.
