genre: Power Ska
label: Skaspot Records
From the untamed wilderness that is the Pacific Northwest comes a gift…and a marvelous gift it is indeed. No, it’s not amateur video footage of Sasquatch doing the Macarena (although that would obviously rock). It’s better. Much better. Those crazy ska-nucks, Rude City Riot, recently released a double-sided digital single as a follow up to their debut, self-titled album and our friends at Skaspot Records were kind enough send us a copy. Brilliant! With “Imposter Man” and “Same Old Story”, RCR picks up right where they left off with the their last studio offering. Power ska at its best. The melodic elements of 2 Tone meets the edginess of third wave, pulling up just short of the ska-core precipice. These cats continue to impress.
