We’ve tallied all the Thumbs Up’s and Thumbs Down’s for the month of October and the Froglix listeners have proven to have quite the diversity of tastes. Forty-five (45) tracks from thirty-three (33) artists received votes, but alas, not everyone can be a winner. Represented in the Top Ten alone though are artists we have described before as rock, modern rock, alternative rock, Brit alt-rock, ambient, electro, electronica, indie pop, ska, power ska, reggae, punk, post-punk, singer/songwriter, and actually quite a bit more. So without further ado…take a listen to October’s favorites…

OuterSound – March 2010
genre: ska | punk | reggae
label: VDub Records
Punk, ska, reggae…these are just a few of my favourite things and, as luck would have it, these are also the calling cards for the latest addition to Froglix Radio. Variety Workshop comes to us from sunny Tampa, Florida and they bring with them an eclectic mix that incorporates a myriad of genres en route to an all-original sound explosion. My favourite tracks are ‘Change’ which bounces back and forth between a third-wave and skate punk feel while ‘U Suck Noodles‘ trips the light fandango with groovy reggae riddims juxtaposed against edgier guitars and rock phrasing. (Click here and check out the live version at Youtube.) Wanna hear more of VW’s punk side? No worries. Just tee up ‘Tetris Attack’ for a heavy dose of attitude a-plenty! Come to think of it…that’s what you get with whole disc! This is a good one my friends…check it out fo sho!
