Listen to the tunes right here. We’ve cued up “Groove d’Hiver” (Winter Groove).



  • Un Jaguar en El Agua — A danceable, horn-rich California groove inspired by the strength and beauty of the largest wild cat in the Western HemisphereInspirado en la fuerza y la belleza del gato salvaje más grande del hemisferio occidental.Inspiré par la force et la beauté du plus grand chat sauvage de l’hémisphère occidental.
  • Dead Air — When you finally leave for good. Sing along to this rock/pop tune with vintage dub stylings.
  • Groove d’Hiver (Winter Groove) — A dub-infused instrumental. Chill.
  • Reva’s Revelation — The tune is for all of us who come to realize parts of ourselves that we didn’t understand, or worse, thought were flaws.
  • However Improbable — A confection of ska, border polka, country, dance, brass band. This is a perfect example of our “Hard to Describe, Easy to Love” style.
  • Blue Ska — Mags’ arrangement of a ska classic from Jamaica circa 1960 by J. Willacey.
  • Surely, Shirley — Upbeat and sweet. A love song. Will Shirley ever notice Sam? Will they fall in love?
  • All in A Day — The Mad Maggies show off their polka chops in this original tune. Crank it up, grab a partner and dance around the house with wild abandon!
  • Within the Wyrd — A cool groove with shades of first wave ska. Danceable. Retro feel.
