.The Slackers at the Ritz

Set aside what you think you know about ska music and put on “How it Feels” by The Slackers.  The first track on 2010’s The Great Rocksteady Single, “How it Feels” showcases what the band had been doing so well for 19 years at that point and continues to do today: write great songs. Six stellar musicians crafting earnest paeans to the sounds of reggae’s early roots, The Slackers know how to hit all the right notes while still keeping things a little loose. Call it a throwback, or call it a classic. Either way, it rocks steady.
