It’s been a minute since I set up a virtual 90min mix tape (split across 4 episodes) dedicated to a decade. One reason it’s been awhile is well… I ran out of decades… but hey, look, we’re in 2020, the 2010s are behind us! Let’s go! Like always, this isn’t a “Best of 2010s Ska” at all, it’s a just a bunch of great music from that decade. I also made it a special point to play bands that I haven’t played in a bit, but were always really rad! When I switched over to trying to keep as current as possible, some of these great bands fell by the wayside, as they either broke up, had trouble recording new material, moved away from being a ska band, or put out great new material that superseded their older, yet still great work! Enjoy this episode and for the next 3 weeks some more gems that we shouldn’t leave behind as we continue on into the 2020s!
