So one of my favorite bands in the world is The Slackers. They are a spectacular New York City ska band. Their new album, “The Great Rocksteady Swindle” was just released last Tuesday. I recommend everyone bust open their wallets and spend the $10 for this gem. Here is a preview track available from youtube:
One of my favorites from the album is definitely the dub-remix of “Ain’t No Sunshine.” This track alone was almost worth the $10 for the album.
Also, David Byrne and Fatboy Slim put out a new album, “Here Lies Love.” My buddy Matt turned me on to its release a couple weeks ago, and I have to say I’m very impressed. This is good walking around town music.
In conclusion, if you buy any album this month/year/decade go with the Slackers. If you are feeling adventurous, or have access to a good torrent client , go ahead and grab all three.
