Download a Free Sampler from RareBreed and Paper + Plastick

The RareBreed Recording Company has very quickly made a name for themselves as the contemporary home of all things ska and reggae. Their 2015 Summer sampler was in heavy rotation in my headphones followed by their Winter 15/16 sampler in a very close second. I find myself anxiously awaiting their now seasonal releases.

In an effort to change things up, the most recent sampler has been released as a pair of two compilations from both RareBreed and their partner label Paper + Plastick. If you’ve ever downloaded a RareBreed sampler, you’ll notice it’s coming from the Paper + Plastick Limited Run page. Where as RareBreed will focus on the ska and reggae, Paper + Plastick aims to be the supplier of all that is up and coming in punk rock.

The joint release provides a really great blend of punk, hardcore, ska, and reggae. As cliché as it sounds, there’s really something for everyone. I find myself listening on shuffle and enjoying almost every tune. There are a handful of tracks that appear to be completely new and a few that can be found on previous releases by the respective labels.
