23min of Ska : King in Yellow

23skatrenchcoatThis started out as an all covers episode, but that was earlier in the day. By the time the sun set I was in a much mellower mood, and let’s be real, most covers are very uptempo and very ska/punk-centric. So yeah, this one is a little laid back, and the laid back cover hung in there. A relaxing little treat after you’ve binged food all day. Well, that is, if you’re in the U.S. if not, you have a real problem, buddy!

23min of Ska : Utopia

23skaUTOPIAWe all have our favorite bands, the bands we grew up with, the bands we were friends with, the bands that had music there when we really needed it. They provide us a way back home in our head. Pretty nifty trick music is, isn’t it? This episode features bands that, to be honest, not sure I would’ve found if not doing this podcast. An arguement could be made for Rude King and the Dropsteppers, but I 100% wouldn’t’ve found these other bands had I not been looking for good music to play, and man, I’m so glad I did! They’re all so great! So enjoy this episode of some of my favorite bands I’ve found along the way.
