Dr. Skavra

Dr. Skavra is a band that summons (WITH THE POWER OF SCIENCE) the evil sounds of surf, ska, new wave, and bizarro. Silly lyrics, lo fi recordings, dancy as fuck. Not enough bands are like this anymore.

Sounds like: Devo, The Aquabats, Oingo Boingo

Sledding With Tigers - No Randy No!

Sledding With Tiger's 3rd release. Away with the auto-tone. Away with the blatant comedy. And with it more somber and dry humour that is reminiscent to the songwriting by Andrew Jackson Jihad, Paul Baribeau, and other awkward/hipster acoustic bands (which is not a bad thing by all means).
Real good, Matured, and rad. A fine collection of songs to add to his repertoire

1. The 405 (is for lovers?)
2. Not Trying to be Awkward
3. In Response to all the Songs Erich Beckmann Writes
4. Love Songs Are Dumb Songs (But I like em Anyways)
5. Sunshine
6. Smile! Why Not?
7. Hey Vanessa!

The Amalgamated

The Almagamated is a band that is playing a lost art form (at least in the west coast) Instrumental Trad. ska. Talented, tight, and full of energy this band shreds and is one of the few bands to make the SoCal ska scene worth it.

sounds like: Skatalites

The Almagamated - Cock of The Walk

Their first release, was recorded live (pretty good quality, too!) just to show off how much talent they have! A rocking EP (though could be longer..) but still a kick in the ass!

Dr. Skavra - Mutated Music EP

Their first release, fun and full of energy! If you liked the cheesiness of 80s new wave with the frantic ska guitar of today, you'll enjoy this.
