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.
