Stubborn All-Stars, "Lieutenant"

The first Stubborn All-Stars record definitely had their laid-back ska groove going, but I think they took it up a notch on the next record. That said, if you're looking for something pretty traditional, bordering on rocksteady, you can do a lot worse.

The New Bomb Turks, "Never Will"

After an absolutely raging debut record, the New Bomb Turks followed it up the next year with another ripper full of garage punk. It's pure adrenaline, with sawtooth guitars and snotty vocals leading the way. Alas, they'd land on Epitaph for their subsequent records, and the cleaned up version of the band isn't quite as fun.

Fabolous & Jadakiss, "F vs J Intro"

I do not remember buying this. Seems like it's an album length collaborative tribute to Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street, and I suppose I probably got it because I'm always curious about horrorcore rap. I dunno, it's OK.

Hot Snakes, "I Need a Doctor"

Hell yeah, Hot Snakes and old New Bomb Turks! Nice one, shuffle!

This is from Jericho Sirens, the reunion record that Hot Snakes put out after a 14 year break, during which Reis and Froberg worked on their own projects. They picked up right where they left off, and it's as good as their original records.

Mastodon, "March of the Fire Ants"

Oh, I'm loving the energy today.
