California-based ska-punk group Just Friends are streaming their funk heavy new album Nothing But Love. I must admit I love ska so this album is right up my alley. Great horn sound, great vocals, great album.
Give it a listen below.
This is the first new music from Just Friends since their 2016 split album. If you’re a fan of Dance Hall Crashers these guys reminded me of some of their later releases.

Los Angeles ska-punk band The Interrupters will release their third studio album Fight the Good Fight on June 29th via Hellcat Records. Fight the Good Fight was produced by longtime collaborator, Rancid frontman, and Grammy Award-winning producer Tim Armstrong with the band at Ship-Rec Recorders in Los Angeles. The album was mixed by Grammy-award winning mixer Tom Lord-Alge (Blink-182, Fall Out Boy, Weezer). Pre-orders for Fight the Good Fight are available here.
The first single shared is “She’s Kerosene” is streaming below. In the track, frontwoman Aimee reflects on breaking free from narcissistic abuse (“I really hope when people listen to that song, it helps them feel empowered to leave a toxic relationship,” Aimee says).
The Longest Hall have a song called "Punch A Nazi In The Face". That should be enough for you to give them a try, but I'll expand. The song starts with a driving tom beat that's more punk than you, references the intro to Fuck Tha Police, then drops a 'BLEH' over a riff that makes you want to start a NYHC style pit in your kitchen. All within the first 21 seconds. Hailing from Florida, the band consists of 3 brothers who clearly grew up loving ALL the music. Genres bleed into one another and you can almost see an excitable trio of men going 'oh wait, what if we did this next' in each song. Usually 'this' is another breakdown to get you moshing. Imagine drunkenly stumbling between the practice studios of A Day To Remember, Anti-Flag, All That Remains and Agnostic Front and you're halfway to understanding the sound these guys have put together. Except sometimes they go full metal. There's a lot going on! Check out their debut album here.
