Boston Ska OG’s Bim Skala Bim are gearing up for tour! To kick things off, they’ve released a mix of songs going as far back as their 1986 fan favorite “Jah Laundromat.” The mix starts off with a brand new track “Lightening”** and then delivers a really great 12-song sampler of the band’s releases from their long career. Current fans will love this and it’s a great introduction for new fans.
I believe the new track on this mix will be their first new recording since their 2015 single “Go Back.” Go give that one a listen while you’re re-visiting Bim’s discography.
Head to Bim Skala Bim’s website to download the mix. It’s a big ol’ mp3 and it’s a bit awkward to listen to in a mobile browser. Your best bet might be to download it on a desktop first.
Bim’s tour kicks off today and concludes with support for Dropkick Murphy’s St. Patrick’s Day shows.
