The indefatigable punk icon reworks his anthemic 2020 album No Dream as ska, and wouldn’t you know, it works.

i mean yeah it’s no dream but ska.
and it’s fun as fuck.
for context, jeff rosenstock used to be in the best ska band and one of the best bands ever, bomb the music industry. and this album definitely has the same vibe as his work with them. it’s the same brand of ska that’s fun and doesn’t take itself too seriously but still isn’t cheesy. as expected by a ska album that was announced on april fools day and released on 4/20, at times the songs can feel like ... read more

Releasing a Ska-cover a year after the release of one of his own albums on 4/20 was a bold move for Jeff, but he legitimately made it better in every way. No irony, no jokes. It's that good.
