23min of Ska : Turn Your World Upside Down

23skaUpsideI’ll be the first to admit that I don’t listen to enough ska from around the world. I’m mostly fixated on Southern California and the American Midwest. I’ve gotten a bit better at finding bands from Canada and the UK, but I still feel as if I need more of a worldly view. So, in that fashion I went out and dedicated a full episode to Australian ska music. In the end, good music is good music no matter where you come from, but a small highlight like this is worth it every now and again.

the Resignators – Summer Girl Smile (Down in Flames ’13)
the Cat Empire – the Chariot (the Cat Empire ’03)
los Capitanes – Superfish (No Fun Intended ’06)
the Bennies – Better Off Dread (Better Off Dread ’13)
Son of Dad – Something Snapped (the Best Life ’13)

23min of Ska : Night on the Town

23ska-bwplaidWoo! Look at that! Another new episode! As I was putting this together, wanting to go a little old school, I found the new albums from Son of Dad and Smerin’s Anti-Social Club and just had to include some songs from them and it just changed the whole direction of the podcast. There’s a lot of instrumentals on this episode, which also wasn’t intended when building it! I hope that you all enjoy this episode as much as I enjoyed finding some of these bands and songs and putting them together!

the Loose Ties – Let’s Go Out Drinking (Champ of the Week ’12)
the Caroloregians – Keep On Upsettin’ (Funkify Your Reggay ’10)
Son of Dad – Thames the Breaks (the Best Life ’13)
Smerin’s Anti-Social Club – Persian Perversion (Primordial Cordials ’13)
