2013 has been another fantastic year for our music. We have seen old favourites come back, countless new names rise up. Reggae Steady Ska reported about some of them. Now, around the turn of the year, many like to take a look back and think about the good things that happened. It’s also a good time to dig deeper and see what we might have missed this year.
That’s the idea behind the Reggae Steady Ska polls. They are not about hyping anything up, they are about showing love.
We put together a playlist with music from nearly all the bands nominated for the Album Of The Year 2013. The playlist is more than five hours long. Thanks a ton to everyone who contributed to the list (Mochammad Yasser, Peter Clemm, Ska-Talk forum, Kevin Flowerdew, Sergio Rallo to name a few) and made it as comprehensive as it gets. There is a lot to discover.
Please take a listen before you cast your votes. And use your right to vote your favourite THREE albums. You are welcome to share the playlist as well. There is another post with some more details about the albums from 2013 (style, country, release date) to be found here.
Three more things
- It will be possible to cast your votes once a day (the poll software works no other way).
- More poll categories will be added in the following days.
- Next to the public voting a jury voting has already been going on for some time. It will be interesting to see the results.
The public votings for the Album Of The Year 2013 start now and end on Monday 6th of January 2014, 23:59 (C.E.T.).
