Album Review: Something To Do – “Music For Fine Dining”

10-odd years or so after the genre’s decline, so many people tend to automatically write off releases from the genre of 3rd-wave ska. Can you really blame them? I can’t, with the numerous stale and repetitive albums we’ve seen in the last five years. But I implore you not to ignore “Music For Fine Dining,” the newest full-length by Milwaukee’s Something To Do.

However, that’s not to say that the music on this record can strictly be defined as 3rd wave. Influences from pop punk, alt rock, 1st wave and 2-tone ska, and even a bit of gypsy swing stick out strong. If I have one pet peeve musically (and I assure you, I have many), it’s when a one-trick pony band claims a thousand genre-spanning influences, and then releases stylistically-limited music. That’s not the case here, as the diversity of sound stands out track-by-track.

This is a pretty lyrically standard release, packed with the usual songs of girls and relationship woes, but any redundancy that might be implied there is skillfully crafted. It might not be anything we haven’t heard before, but it’s honest and well-written, and sometimes that’s all I need. Plus, grade-A vocals by singer/bassist Nathan Tredinnick backed by bitchin’ harmonies and gang vocals by the rest of the band come together to pull of everything smoothly.

Throw in a well-polished brass section and a couple of never-too-quiet guitars, and you’ve got a great summer album. My favorite tracks include “Man In The Black Sedan,” “All Of The Best,” “Down, Down, Down,” and “Told You So.” This one gets 7/10 stars. For some background, check out my recent interview with the band. This one officially drops next week, so keep your eye out for a stream.


Interview: Something To Do discuss fundraising, Red Stripe beer, and upcoming album “Music For Fine Dining”

This summer, Milwaukee ska outfit Something To Do is preparing the most anticipated release of their career, “Music For Fine Dining.” Dying Scene recently spoke to guitarist Alex Kayser regarding the upcoming album, the band’s role in the coordinating of Skappleton, the biggest ska festival in the Midwest, and more.

To check out the first single, entitled “All The Best,” click here.

Connor (Dying Scene) What can fans expect to hear on the new album in contrast to your older material?

Alex (Something To Do) This is definitely our most diverse album to date. We’ve had some lineup changes/additions since the last release (Joe on trumpet, me on guitar) that have contributed to the new sound. With two guitars, Kenny and I have been able to create guitar parts that are much more complex and diverse. The writing process was also very collaborative. For example, Joe and I wrote two songs, gave them to Nate (main vocals/bass) and he implanted a horn part he wrote years ago.

How is “Music For Fine Dining” going to appeal to those not necessarily fans of ska music?

We have always been a band that seems to go over well with anyone and everyone. We have played with hardcore punk bands, metal bands, ska bands, and country bands, and we always have a good response. If I had a dime for every time an elderly person said to me “The horns remind me of polka”, I would be a millionaire. Often times it seems as though people love our music but have no idea that it is ska. We are sneaky like that. But in all seriousness, you will hear ska, pop, punk, rock, and even some weird Russian influenced polka.

You used the Kickstarter module to raise money for the album, as an increasing amount of bands are doing. What was that process like?

It was stressful and a lot of work, but overall incredibly rewarding. Stressful in that we were constantly wondering whether or not we would reach our goal, but very rewarding to see the support from our fans, friends, and family! It also pushed us to make connections with our fans in new ways.
