#556 :: Windy City Sound System 18 :: 2019 Highlights ... so far (19 June 2019)

It’s hard to believe, but we’re already halfway through 2019. As has been the case for the last couple years, there has been a wealth of new ska, rocksteady, and reggae music that has been released! Rather than wait until the end of the year, we wanted to pick some choice cuts off albums released during the first half of the year, which have been on repeat here at WCSS HQ. Big ups to all of these artists, and here’s to hoping the remainder of the year is just as prolific with new music! ~Jim
