After an extended break the English reggae outfit The Drop revealed a new song recently.
Three gigs have also been announce to accompany the new song – Avatar – along with a rumour of an LP for release during the early part of 2018. It would therefore appear that this new song is more than a one off, which is good news to hear.

Their début single She’s Got It Down is centred around a dreamy melodic flow of guitars, which harks back to Factory Records, taking the listener on a beguiling ride of psychedelic colours, in a track that attests to the strong songwriting skills that lay behind the output as the song unhurriedly drifts through its just over three and a third minutes duration.
The English metal quartet Skarlett Riot released the LP Regenerate on the 27th of October.
A ten track album of high-octane rock that bursts in to the room in a frenzy of pulsing bass and furious percussion with the guitar providing a balance of roaring riffs and expansive melody while the vocal harmonises the different elements.
The English roots-reggae outfit Royal Sounds released their début LP Burning Inspiration on the 27th of October.
It is when information of the likes of the roughly fifty six minutes bakers dozen album plus an almost ten minutes remix fourteenth track (available on bandcamp) surfaces that life as a music journalist fully evidences the absolute joy of doing what I do and why I keep on doing it – already I have the first long-list identification for the Editors’ choice for band of the month for November and it is only the 2nd.
Set aside plenty of time and space to dance and fully engage with the LP – my pick of which is the fifth track No Amnesia.
Royal Sounds are out on tour later this month and in to December around Wales and England – and if within reach something with which to engage.

The English indie quintet The Collision are almost set to release their début EP.
Formed earlier in the year The Collision seep influences of US indie-dance in to their output, which enables them to deliver music of transatlantic appeal and rather than languishing in the Sargasso sea are able to deliver a soundtrack which has a winding brit-pop inside a more pristine US indie-pop that has a resonance on both sides of the ocean.
The first song to surface from the forthcoming full-length is Never Gone.
