Here's a new band to keep your eye out for. The Dropsteppers from Minneapolis released their debut album Get Up In It! this past September. Definitely worth a listen.


The Dropsteppers - Get Up In It!

Our genre of music blends Jamaican early reggae (1969-72), Jamaican rocksteady (1966-1968) and American Soul. 90% of our music is original!

Our influences include many Jamaican and American Soul Artists such as: The Melodians, Desmond Dekker, Alton Ellis, Delroy Wilson, The Bleechers, Dave Barker, The Upsetters, Toots and the Maytals, Marcia Griffiths, Phyllis Dillon, Pat Kelly, The Techniques, Otis Redding, Sam Cooke, The Mohawks, The Specials, James Brown, David Ruffin, The Meters, Major Lance, The Beatles and The Aggrolites.

Listen to their album on Soundcloud here: http://soundcloud.com/the-dropsteppers/sets


The next band I'd like to share is The Stingers ATX.

The Stingers ATX - All In A Day

Since 1998, The Stingers have developed their own modern hybrid of Jamaican rocksteady/ska and classic American doo-wop soul: solid roots-reggae rhythms, melodic horn lines, and 5 lead vocalists each with a unique style backed by tight 3- and 4-part harmonies. All of this is anchored by superb songwriting and lyrics that range from rocksteady love tunes to politically charged steppers reggae to high energy ska, reflecting the decades-old legacy of Bob Marley and the Wailers, Sam Cooke, The Skatalites and Bob Dylan.

I'm surprised to see so much Five Iron love in here! Did not expect that at all. They're probably half the reason I picked up Trombone in 5th grade. The other half was probably Lanky Kong.

Judging from the comments, I'm sure a ton of Five Iron fans have left the church over the past 10 years. However, the fact that we all still love this band nonetheless is testament to what a great thing they've got going.

If you asked each of us what Five Iron’s mission is you might get 8 different answers, but from my perspective this band has no agenda other than to be authentic. It’s about honesty. I am interested in a pure, artistic expression, regardless of whether or not I’m of the same opinion as the artist. Reese is a gifted lyricist, and I enjoy his words even though we have very different notions about the world. He talks about struggles with faith in a way that I can relate to, and though we came out of our respective struggles with different ideas I am still moved by the music we all make together.

I love this thread. I've largely grown out of the loop with more current happenings, but this thread is a great reminder that a lot of bands are still going strong or have merged together to form even better bands.

I wonder what Big D is up to these days. As far as 3rd wave goes, I don't find their stuff to be terrible. Last album I heard from them was them ditching the doo-wop singers and the whole "stroll" genre. That was weird.

EDIT: Oh shit, Dave has cancer. :c

My favourite local band, The Expos (once known as larger, horn-equipped The Donuts) here's their current stuff:

Dying Too Long

Blackwater (One of my favourite tracks from them.)

And a re-release of The Donuts material:

To Be In Love, Under The Rain

Before Breakfast

Old Friends (Scroll to the bottom of the page. I know it's a weird spot to find it, but they're really unknown and don't have a tonne of material still alive on the internet.)

I was out of the loop for a few years myself. The past year or two though I've been trying to keep up and hear all the new and old stuff I've missed over the years. You definitely have to put in some work to find all the great music out there. It's so worth it though when you find a new band to love. I'll make another post of new bands/albums to check out sometime today.

I only found out about these guys a few months ago, but I've been absolutely loving this band. Please tell me these guys are still making music and have another album coming out. I just love their sound. Definitely recommend people check these guys out. Blackwater and Old Friends are available on Spotify.

Here's a few more albums that were released in 2011.


Prince Fatty meets The Mutant HiFi
Next time I play through Red Dead Redemption I'm using this album for the custom soundtrack.

Prince Fatty Meets The Mutant Hifi in 'Return of Gringo!' is the fevered and frontal lobe-damaged brainchild of Nick Coplowe (The Mutant Hifi) and Mike Pelanconi (Prince Fatty), the result of years of plotting, planning, laughing and procrastinating. Put simply, it is a surf/ska/spaghetti western soundtrack album for a film that is yet to be made. Think Dick Dale jamming with the Skatalites with Morricone at the helm, including appearances from Alessandro Alessandroni (the original spaghetti western whistler) and you're in the right section at the record store, although it is possibly a very small section.

Prince Fatty meets The Mutant HiFi - Up The Creek

The Expanders - The Expanders

The Expanders began playing reggae music together in the summer of 2003, and today are one of the most respected and hardest working reggae bands in Southern California. They have come to be known for their vintage "rockers" style of reggae, played in the tradition of classic 1970s Jamaican groups like The Ethiopians, Culture, The Mighty Diamonds, etc. Their music emphasizes three-part vocal harmonies and strong song writing. In addition to performing their own original material and rare Jamaican scorchers, since 2006 The Expanders have been the backing band of choice for legendary Jamaican singers when they come to California to perform, having backed such classic artists as Alton Ellis, The Maytones, The Ethiopians, The Wailing Souls, and many more. For two years in a row they were featured at the Sierra Nevada World Music Festival in Mendocino County, where their performances were praised in "The Beat" magazine as having recreated "the old classic Kingston rocksteady sound to a T". They have been frequent guests on SoCal radio shows such as "Reggae Central w/ Chuck Foster" (90.7 fm) and "The Reggae Show w/ Junor Francis" (88.9 fm). In addition to playing in The Expanders, several members of the band also play in Hepcat, The Lions, Chris Murray Combo, See Spot and Boogaloo Assassins.

The Sidewalk Doctors - Music Is Medicine

Formed by Lenny Bignell (who has previously worked with Pama Intl and Acid Jazz Soul stars Lord Large) and Nathan Thomas, The Sidewalk Doctors have a sound that is equal parts sweet, soulful and heavy.
Taking influence from Vintage Jamaican sounds, particularly the Rocksteady era, adding a dose of soul and molding it into something unique.
August 2011 sees the release of their debut album "Music is Medicine"
9 choice cuts of Ska, Rocksteady and Reggae, exquisitely delivered.
A tonic to cure all your ills.

Kevin Batchelor - Kevin Batchelors' Grand Concourse

This is a brand new NYC based ska/reggae project behind frontman Kevin Batchelor. Kevin is well known for his work as a sideman with The Skatalites, but now KB is fronting his own original project called Grand Concourse. The band is loaded with talent that Kevin met along the way in the close knit ska community. The instant chemistry in the group can be heard in their debut record.

Spotify Link: http://open.spotify.com/album/1E0plMcJ0wSTLM1E8HYb7g
Reverbnation Page: http://www.reverbnation.com/kevinbat...grandconcourse


The One Droppers - The Big One

The warm buzz of the valves, the scent of spinning vinyls, the sound of a needle moving gently into the deep furrows, delivering offbeat rhythms to the enormous black speakers of a sound system.
What the One Droppers are trying to do is to dust off their the Studio One records and make those sounds alive once again, in another country and another time.
The core of this band is to reproduce those sounds and to recreate that atmosphere, spacing from early ska to the rocksteady years.
Eight elements with years of experience execute that one drop with royal majesty, with their broken calypso lines, deep basses, snapping offbeat, vibrating hammonds, explosive brass section and hot, amazing soul voices, bringing out the best years of the Alpha Boy school in order to generate cool vibes, hard dancing and to shorten the distance to Kingston Town.

Checking this out right now. I've been meaning to listen to this album since I saw it on Spotify a while ago. Definitely more punk than what I usually like in my ska these days, but it's not bad at all. The second song sounds A LOT like a Less Then Jake song. Even the horns have that LTJ sound.

Nothing wrong with RBF. They did the whole rock star/party ska thing perfectly. Their live shows are really great too.

To make one more band suggestion. Every ska fan should listen to The Moon Invaders. Their newest album "The Fine Line" came out last year and I just can't get enough of it. Check it out.

Just wanted to share The JB Conspiracy's newest EP "The Calm" that came out this year. I'm not really into to much ska/punk these days, but this EP is awesome. Best new ska/punk stuff I've heard in a long time. If these 4 songs are anything to go by, the album is going to be awesome. It's long overdue too since JB's last release was in 2007.

I love the old Ska but fucking hate ska punk and most of the ska-esque shite around today.

My experiences actually mirror your own; I listened to them constantly while growing up. However, I'm not sure that the possibility of another Five Iron Frenzy album evokes anything except sentimentality from me. I have no interest in actually listening to them again. I was going to joke that Five Iron Frenzy probably all became atheists after they broke up, but I see that some of the members actually have left the church.

Just found out about the band Yes Sir Boss and had to share. They recently released their first EP "Desperation State" and it is fantastic. Really great sound and a band worth watching out for.

You can listen to their song Never Know and a few samples on their MySpace page:
