The weather’s about to turn cooler and that means it’s time to break out your dopest gear and get ready to layer that shit. Yes, this fall will be dominated by button down collars, sweater vests, skinny jeans, and, of course, trilby hats. The indie kids on the coasts have likely moved on already but that doesn’t mean you slobs in the Midwest can’t run out and buy a sharp cut, thin-lapeled suit and don thy finest Urban Outfitter lid.
Want to really make the scene? Make sure your in-ear headphones are cranking GLONO’s Your Trilby Hat mix. When that dopey girl who answers the phone in the office glances at your iPod window and sees the likes of this mix on your Nano, she’ll know who she’s taking home after the holiday party this year.
Yes, get a sample of my questionable taste with a killer mix of soul, dub, rocksteady, and rock and roll. Nearly 40 songs that will rev up your autumn and dress up your dropsy and snide. The Melodians, Alton Ellis, Delroy Wilson, The Clovers, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, Etta James, Amy Winehouse (yep, fuck you), Booker T and the MGs…this is it.

On a first-wave ska kick now, aren’t we? Not a bad thing; no record collection should be without The Harder They Come soundtrack, in my not-so-humble opinion.
Yep, thanks to Mick from Riviera. He’s much more in the know on this stuff than I but these are a few favorites I could find on iTunes. I may post a more soul-focused follow-up as well.
