Hepcat – Bobby & Joe (7″)

To help celebrate and support tonight’s world premiere of the ska movie (documentary), Pick It Up – we have to show some love and throw it back to our all-time favorite ska-band of that 3rd wave era – Hepcat. Growing up as kids/teens in the 90s, that ska-revival scene was part of the soundtrack to our lives, especially out here in Southern CA. To this day- anytime @officialhepcat plays a show nearby – we’re buying our tickets and easy skanking the whole way #45friday#pickituppickituppickitup

Karen O & Danger Mouse – Lux Prima (LP)

2019 Lux Prima U.S. Indie Release

Before we start inundating each other’s feeds with all our RSD finds tomorrow – we needed to take a moment to highlight the latest from @dangermousejukebox and @ko – Lux Prima. What more can be said about Danger Mouse that hasn’t already been said? Except that maybe he found his ultimate collab partner in Karen O (of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs). When you’re out there digging the crates tomorrow – make sure you cop this record when it comes up! I’m also a sucker for beautiful packaging and attention to detail – and this vinyl has all of it. The record jacket is a gatefold and has a nice vintage photo album feel to it. #beautifulpackaging#beautifulmusic

Durand Jones & The Indications – American Love Call (LP)

2019 Dead Oceans Limited Edition Orange Vinyl Pressing

We had to take a minute to highlight this beautiful LP by @durandjonesandtheindications. If you’ve listened to our first two podcast episodes – you’ve learned that we’ve caught this wave – courtesy of @fatbeats and have seen the rest of our fellow diggers out there promoting this soulful brilliance. The beauty about this cut is how effortless it feels for the band and Mr. Jones to hit all the right notes. 2019 feeling like 1967 #americanlovecall#soulmusic⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
