Tonight we put the spotlight on Guerrero Records, a new imprint coming out of Los Angeles focusing on traditional ska and roots reggae, as we listen to cuts from their first three releases (check them out on Bandcamp and Facebook).
We also listen to a bunch of new releases, including the digital-only EP from friends of the show The Georgetown Orbits (available on Bandcamp), a track from The Bluebeats “Alternate Mix” of their debut Dance With Me (available on Bandcamp), No Sports’ new album “Twang!”, and The Selecter’s 40th Anniversary release of Too Much Pressure.
We round it out with a whole lotta ska from Germany, along with the UK, Venezuela, Austria, and the USA. Just a bit of every style from around the world, as you’ve come to expect from 100% Ska!
If you are local to NYC, come out to our Holiday Ska Party on December 17th at Otto’s Shrunken Head!
