30 Mar Skanktral Ska Hotel – Skablime
A year in the making, this is the sophmore release from the genius behind In the Aeroskank under the Checkered Pattern. This time around Skanktral Ska Hotel have the best parts of Sublime’s self titled album (the ska parts) and then improved on these to create Skablime.
With some simple modernisation, some subtle horns and gentle up strokes, Skanktral Ska Hotel have created a chronological tribute to the world’s greatest “almost ska” band. It is common knowledge that Sublime were the forefront of 3rd wave ska. It is only necessary for Skablime to lead the way for the highly anticipated 4th wave ska.
Forgoing any preconceived notions of traditional Western pop music, the artists behind Skablime have forged an incredible work of art, one that will touch upon just about every possible emotion one can have.
“We just had to do it,” says co-mastermind Seamus. “Sometimes you feel something in your heart, a drive, a passion, that’s begging to leap out and show itself to the world. We had that. We also had the same feelings from our brains, because we’re really smart and also sexy.” Skablime is not an album to take lightly. Take your time with it. Set aside an hour or so, withdraw yourself from the distractions of the modern world, and marinate in the beauty.
With hoards of ska fans hot under their fedoras with eager anticipation, this is the album that will help them pick it up for 2018.
