The Frightnrs' New Video for "Sharon"

The Frightnrs--one of my NYC favorite bands, hailing from the fine borough of Queens--have been releasing some incredibly good music and making some very smart business moves recently. They've been working with Diplo's Mad Decent label, as well as the celebrated Daptone Records, and have generated a good deal of attention from press and fans not normally attuned to what's going on in the kinda, very underground NYC ska and reggae scene--all while delivering their own brilliant brand of rub-a-dub and rocksteady. (They haven't changed, the world has come to them...)

The Frightnrs have just released a wry and really well-done video in support of their Mad Decent/The Full Hundred single "Sharon" (read The Duff Guide to Ska review here) and their digital Inna Lovers Quarrel EP (which I owe the band a review of--d'oh!). Take a look at it below...

If you're in the NYC area this Halloween, you can catch The Frightnrs (plus The Far East and selectors Grace of Spades, and Jah Point and Mush One featuring Screechy Dan) at the Witch Dance (The Kimberlye Project, 1332 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn; doors at 9:00 pm, $10 gets you in).
