Album Of The Year 2019 – Jury Voting Results

Tim Receveur

of Supernova Ska Festival

1. The Loving Paupers – Lines. This one has been on a constant loop since it came out. Deep grooves and the best new vocals in ska and reggae in the last few years.

2. The Dualers – Palm Trees. One British publication said the sound is what would happen if Bob Marley and Sam Cooke merged sounds. It’s a wonderful collection of songs that incorporate the early Jamaican ska rhythms.

3. Emily Capell – Combat Frock. Not to be a downer, but last was such a horrible year for the planet and this album makes 2019 just a little better. Wonderful lyrics, great hooks, and a ton of fun.

We also had Eastern Standard Time, The Bandulus, The Planet Smashers, and Catbite on our list.
