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!

23min of Ska : Honey Dipped

23skaHONEYDIPTired. Overworked. Stressed. But then again, I’m hardly alone in that department. We all need to let go a bit. Lean back and breath. Life can get pretty complicated if we let it. It’s about the only thing that’ll tie itself up into knots if we don’t fuss with it. Get out of town if you need to, and if you live in the country, get into town, it’s more fun there than us city folk like to let on. That said, he’s another batch of fantastic ska music that I hope that you enjoy.

23min of Ska : Maple Bar

Neighbors are pretty great, eh? I suggest you get to know yours if you don’t already. I’ve been fortunate enough to have always lived next to some pretty kind folks. From out in the country when there’s an acre of land between you both, to apartments where you can hear each other sneeze, I’ve been lucky to have mostly lived near people I could party with, have drinks with, or at the very least, exchange pleasantries with in the elevator. It’s a small world, so it’s best if we look out for each other, start with your family, extend to your neighbors, it’s always worth it.
