#568 :: Windy City Sound System 21 :: This Is Modern Ska! (11 Sept 2019)

Here’s Part 2 to our episode last month, which is featuring strictly ska music. After 50+ years in existence, the genre has gone through a number of “waves” of popularity, and the sound has evolved and fused with others in ways that the Jamaican originators wouldn’t have ever imagined. We could probably put together another handful of episodes to include all these iterations, but seeing as we’re nearing the end of the decade, we wanted to look back at the last ten years worth of ska music. Within this episode you’ll find both some of my favorite tunes from the last decade, as well as some other ones that I think have flown under the radar, proving that the genre is still alive, well, and positively thriving even to this day!

The Brooklyn Attractors - Gowanamera
