Its Bandcamp Friday again, April 1st, but this ain’t no joke! We’re bringing you another ska preview spectacular showcasing some great recently released singles and album tracks to give you some inspiration for your shopping cart. Support your scene!
This episode has some amazing international representation of the current ska scene (and ska styles!), from Checkered Past (Cambodia!) to The Skatuesques (Ireland), and Guess What (Belgium) to Sr. Mephisto (Costa Rica).
Homegrown US acts of note include Coolie Ranx (with his debut solo album), The Simulators (outta Connecticut!), and Catbite (Philly!). You’ll also hear The Jinkies, from the late 90s, who’ve just put their self-titled album up. And there’s so much more to discover this episode!
