23min of Ska : Vanilla Frosted with Sprinkles

23skaVANILLASPRINKLESAlright, I’m not here to upset all you ska/punk lovin’ kids, but this week, well, this week I have a laid back episode for you. If it’s not your thing, I get it, but damn, are these songs smooth as hell. When I think of ska I think of it as an inherently cool genre, and it’s these kinds of songs that make me think that. If this kind of ska doesn’t do it for you, I feel sorry for ya son. And for all those that get it, man, I wanna give you all a dozen low fives.

23min of Ska : Pearls Are a Nuisance

23skaGUNGIRLWoah! Lots of new ska on this episode! Heck, some of these songs JUST came out! (I mean, except that Kill Lincoln track, that one’s about 5 yrs old) The one comment I get from people when they find out I do a ska podcast, or that I’m into ska in general, is “ska is still a thing?” As much as I want to lecture them on the long history of ska I just say “Yep!” And when listening to bands such as these put out music so recently that is so good, well, ska is going to be a thing for quite awhile!
