Finnish Soul Ska! SKY DEE & THE DEMONS “Celebrator” LP / THE NORTHQUAKES “Tears In Rain” LP

Two amazing imports from the legendary Stupido Records in Finland! SKY DEE & THE DEMONS are a Finnish troop whose 2018 album mixes vintage “northern style” soul and traditional ska into a tasty cocktail, to be perfectly honest this album reminds me of Chicago’s Deal’s Gone Bad!  A driving beat perfect for dancing, truthfully I don’t know how we missed this album the first time around! THE NORTHQUAKES are another great Finnish band, lead by vocals from Elisa Moonstomp this 2019 album has two distinct sides: downtempo vintage reggae and Style Council influenced cappuccino soul. A great relaxing listen from start to business.
