Oreskaband: Oreskaband (Terry Dollar)
release: August 7, 2007
style: bursting with joy ska-rock
similar: Aquabats, Reel Big Fish, Mighty Mighty Bosstones
rating: ***1/2
They're playing Warped tour, signed to Sony Music Japan and if you didn't already figure out by the band name, this young six-piece all-girl band is mother-f-ing-SKA-pumped high energy rock. I don't know what the deal is with ska in Japan right now but if you try real hard to forget that ska hasn't been popular in the states for like 10 years now, Oreskaband is hella fun. On the record you can hear they are having outrageous fun so one can only imagine what they are like live. I'm going to youtube now to find out. -Kenyon
