I've never been that much a fan of ska. You'd think it would be up my alley with the drums and guitar riffs of rock layered with the brassy sound of big band. But a lot of bands, and songs from the same band, sound identical. That's not to say there aren't individual songs I like.
This week's song is from a band called Streetlight Manifesto. I like more songs from them than from other ska bands. Also, I used to play basketball with their trombonist (at least the guy who played from 2003-2010). The song "Forty Days" features some good work by him and some catchy riffs.
