23min of Ska : Dual Tracked

23skaCOASTER8Once again I’m just dropping a ton of new ska (with some well picked older song) on you! Hope that’s ok! More than that, I hope that your Summer is going well and that you’re all doing OK. It’s been a hectic one over here, getting the new house set up, oh man! But it’ll be great in a bit. Trust me when I say, when things are hectic take a small break where you can, and only for as long as it needs to be, then push on through, the reward will be awesome and you didn’t burn yourself out either. Double bonus!

23skaSMARTThis episode of 23min of Ska was sourced by an insanely large ska CD & LP collection by 23 ska scholars. Would you believe it? Hmmm . . . Would you believe a handful of ska aficionados and a healthy stack of ska CDs? How about one sleepy guy with his browser opened on bandcamp.com sorted to “ska”? I hope I wasn’t out of line with that crack about my sleepiness or my lack of seriousness about creating this podcast.

23min of Ska : Kick Start My Heart

23ska roofI’m a fan of Kickstarter, have been for a long long time, pretty much since I’d heard of it back in ’09, and in my time I’ve backed mostly music projects, and of those mostly ska projects. I like being able to support the bands I love as direct as I possibly can, also, I like to support newer acts that just need that last bit of cash to get the record out. Here’s 8 songs from 8 bands that I have personally thrown down cash for. Trust me, you’re going to love this episode! No need to thank me, I’d’ve just spent that money on ska somehow anyway.

Big D & the Kids Table – Shit Tattoos (Stomp ’13)
the Shifters – She’s so Fine (In It! ’12)
Rude King – Remember (It’ll Probably be Alright ’13)
Something to Do – Man in the Black Sedan (Music for Fine Dining ’12)
PapaFish – 1 to 10 (the Lab ’13)
Uncle Joel’s Comb – Better Together (Tubular ’12)
the Loose Ties – Awesomer Than You (Champ of the Week ’12)
the Scotch Bonnets – Live Ya Life (Live Ya Life ’13)
