23min of Ska : Pick Up on Noon Street

23skaFINGERMANWhen I started putting this episode together, I was pretty mellow, I was digging what I was assembling, but I thought it needed some bite. The next day I sat down to “improve” it and I was already angry. I was wasn’t having any of the mellowness of the day before. As I picked and tossed new songs I started finding my way back to a more laid back state. This episode isn’t going after you, but it also isn’t a going to lay down, it shall be heard and you shall dance to it!

23min of Ska : Days of Future Present

23skaFUTUREPRESENTI’m going to admit it right here, straight up, all I wanted to do was bring you a batch of fresh new ska music released in the first few months of 2016. I wasn’t really worried about the theme, plus this story is kind of a mess. But, it seems like it fits the story anyway! Not even kidding, I noticed it at about my third listen through to make sure the episode was sounding good that a large amount of these songs do reflect the story, a bit more surface than usual though. Accidentally achieving a theme with music, must be my mutant power.
