Normally, I'm not much of a third wave ska fan. I find the entire Moon Ska catalogue sleep-inducing (that being said, neither am I one of these I'm-ashamed-to-admit-I-ever-listened-to-ska-in-high-school-music-fans.) But Westbound Train are an entirely different animal. A typical record of theirs boasts knowledge of more influences than your average Boston Phoenix record review. Their new one--out on Hellcat--is no exception, traversing decades, genres, and scenes, each one handled with a surprising degree of authenticity.
