Album review: 'It's Going Down' 

Some Ska Band

'It's Going Down'

Self-released

someskaband.com

Here's some real ska-jump-and-jive-soul for ya, sluggo. Think The Slackers, with a smirk. With ska-meister Charles Benoit - he of the poison pen and the savage saxophone - driving the bus and producer Sam Polizzi keeping said bus from driving over the cliff, tension runs high and so does the fun. Some Ska Band is pure, skankaliciously-careening ska, with nods to other genres that keep it fresh and courageous, both in attitude and application. There are some mellow, rock-steady reprieves peppered in as well, amid nine rude cuts that'll surely knock your checkerboard sox off.

Some Ska Band played a free CD release party for "It's Going Down" on January 15, 6 p.m. at Record Archive, 33 1/3 Rockwood Street.
