Ska Christmas from Switzerland

Making records since 2018 on specialty label Fruits Records, Swiss ska-band Cosmic Shuffling is releasing a vinyl 7-inch next month. Their first Christmas single, and if yer into ska and rocksteady from the 60s, you will be having a blast. For Ska Christmas has that brilliant laid back vibe, and Leo Mohr has the right, sweet soul voice that can melt, well, snow I guess. Lyric wise, it's like a nursery rhyme but hey, look, you're already skanking to the beat.

Very curious about that other track. Will check later.

While we are on the subject, how'bout some original Jamaican Xmas ska, rocksteady and reggae tracks?
