The Stingers ATX
This Good Thing (Jump! Up Records)

By: Alex Steininger

Ska is still alive! Yes, it is! Seriously. OK, don't believe me, eh? Put in Jump Up! Records recording artists The Stingers ATX and their latest, This Good Thing, and hear as traditional ska meets rocksteady. The grooves are fresh and crisp, the dancing a given, and the horn section flushing you with golden, settling notes of pure relaxation. It's a party, once that sees you dancing and smiling, having a good time, and letting your hair down as you blend into the mellow sounds of The Stingers ATX and groove to their grooves. Smooth, soothing, and soulful, The Stingers ATX and their latest, This Good Thing, is just what the doctor ordered for a bad mood or depression, an infectious, happy-go-lucky dance record that is ripe with beats and over pouring with good energy. This is true, in-the-blue ska music that goes back to the roots and adds its own current touch. I'll give this a B-.
