Ruder Than You: Creation Sounds

Philly ska band Ruder Than You have been at it for more than twenty years. Their hard work never brought them world fame, but a strong cult following has stayed with them. Their new album Creation Sounds kicks off with the instrumental pRaise HaVoC and comes with a tasty bass riff and jangling guitar that will appeal to Primus fans ending with a horns blast that segues into the ska party anthem Baby Tonight. A bit of jazz is thrown in for the title track Creation Sounds and then it''s the time for the sole breather - the gospel reggae tune Faith.

For the remainder of the album they showcase their musicial prowess with a Siamese twin of high energy songs (Yo Ho Down and Brand New Day), the Specials inspired tune Give the People What They Need a Zappaesque intro for The Witch a.
