23min of Ska : the Millionaire’s Holiday

Last year I kept encountering more and more ska music that was rather, for lack of a better term, lounge-y. I’ve always been a fan of Martin Denny and exotica lounge stuff, as well as the more popular stuff by Nelson Riddle, and even more modern throwbacks like Tipsy and the Pizzicato Five. So I kept updating a playlist labeled “Lounge Type Ska” as 2020 rolled on, and when I had more than enough songs I tried my hand at getting them assembled into this episode. It’s not a dancing episode, it’s a relaxing episode, so sit down and raise a glass, you’ve earned it.

This is not a “Best of 2019” list. I dunno, I just usually don’t do that kind of thing. And this year would be so hard, 2019 kicked us all a lot of good ska, and this episode is only a small part of it. So yeah, here’s a load of 2019 ska and ska/punk for you, and if this is the first time you’re hearing some of these bands, kick-ass, look more into them, they’re all rad. And if you have heard some of them before… you’re welcome, these songs are great, I’m sure you’re glad to hear them again!
