Esben & The Witch new album news

Esben & The Witch announced details of their new album A New Nature this week. The follow up to last year’s Wash The Sins Not Only The Face has been produced by legendary producer Steve Albini at his Electric Audio studio in Chicago, and will be released on September 1st on a new label set up by the band called Nostromo records. The first taster of the album is a track called Blood Teachings, which you can hear below:

There’s a lot more information over at The Quietus, including the album artwork and comments from the band.

New Music – Tyrannosaurus Dead, Bar Stool Preachers, Mother of Billions, Will Mussett, Black Honey, Fable, Andrew Montgomery, Mindofalion

Here’s this week’s dose of new music for you all. We’re kicking things off with Tyrannosaurus Dead, who have a new split single coming out soon with Joanna Gruesome. Post Holiday Dead Song is out on 7″ on July 21st, and can be pre-ordered now via Odd Box Records.

Bar Stool Preachers are a new local ska punk band. Here’s the video for their debut release One Fool Down:

We can’t stop listening to the Mother of Billions we posted up last week. Where the original had a classy trip hop feel, the Arshaw Remix gives Universe a sexy house sheen:

News about Hurricane, the first single to be taken from Will Mussett‘s debut album, only reached us this evening. Here’s the lyric video for the track, taken from the record due later this year.

Black Honey‘s first track was also a new arrival in our inbox today. The band are already getting props from Royal Honey and The Wytches, which should be more than enough recommendation to get your ears around Sleep Forever

Fable is a new Brighton based singer songwriter, but don’t let the description pigeon hole her. At only 19 years old she’s already provided vocals for the upcoming Orbital album and now releases her first track I Speak Words

Back in the 90s, angelic voiced Andrew Montgomery was better known as lead singer of Geneva. Since then he’s been involved in a number of musical projects, but later this year releases his debut solo album. After the Storm is the album’s opener and a taste of what we can expect when Ruled By Dreams comes out on 5th October.

Our last track this week is Obstacle by Mindofalion. The single is out on July 18th, with a launch gig the following day at The Hope:

Momotaro and Winston & Goldstein at the Hope

Last night Momotaro and Winston & Goldstein supported Garden City Movement at a sweltering night at The Hope.

We’ve written about a few of Winston & Goldstein‘s tracks before but this was only her second proper gig (after playing with Dog in the Snow a few weeks ago). There’s an album that’s being sold at the live shows which showcases not just her dancier tracks we’ve posted about already, but a whole spectrum of electronica – we’ll be writing more about that when it’s a bit easier to get hold of. Last night was Momotaro‘s first gig as a five piece, having recently added a bassist and a VJ to their line up. Their set was mostly taken from this year’s album Second Side with a couple of new tracks, or maybe radical reworkings thrown in, bolstered with live bass, and accompanied by visuals which they’ve played to a few times but are now on a permanent basis. Here’s our photos we took of the night:

New Music – Fear of Men, Fujiya & Miyagi, Palm Springs, FEVRS, Mother of Billions, Bunty, Jacko Hooper, The Hundredth Anniversary, Water Canvas, Rooster Cole, Moulettes, Bentcousin, Adolescent, IYES

We seem to be chasing our tail with new music again – this week we’ve got absolutely loads again for you up with more from Fear of Men (who appeared in the last new music roundup we did with their French version of Luna), Bentcousin, Fujiya & Miyagi, Moulettes, Hundredth Anniversary and many, many more:

First up is the video for Fear of Men‘s new single Descent, directed by Eleanor Hardwick, who also directed the video for Dog in the Snow’s last single Factory.

Fujiya & Miyagi have put out a video for the lead track from their new album Artificial Sweeteners. The band are currently off touring the new album and have taken AK/DK along as support.

Palm Springs new single Seal My Fate is out now on Hove’s Random Acts of Vinyl label on 7″ and download, and also has this rather tasty black and white video:

FEVRS (pronounced “Fears” – the V is actually an upsidedown A) put out their debut EP on Everything is Chemical earlier this month. Here’s the first track, the ambient electronic Sirens / Control

Mother of Billions are a new London / Brighton based pop duo who are putting out their debut single Universe on 10th July. The launch party for the single takes place at The Hope on 11th July.

We’re gutted that we missed Bunty‘s single launch which took place at the Spectrum night at the Dome last Friday. The summery We Are Here is out now:

Egg Shells is the lead track from Jacko Hooper‘s upcoming For You EP, which had a very successful pledge campaign last year. The EP comes out on 30th June on One Inch Badge’s imprint:

Boon Magazine put out a 12″ Record to coincide with their last print issue. Here’s The Hundredth Anniversary‘s contribution, a slow brooding number called Stretched Lungs

Water Canvas are a new Brighton based rock band. You can grab their new At Least EP at bandcamp or take a listen to lead track Memorial Drive here:

The brand new Rooster Cole track Up To The Teeth only appeared on Soundcloud this afternoon. We don’t know much about it, but we like it!

Something else only uploaded today is the video to Moulettes new single. So It Goes is out today and is backed by an edit of Lady Vengeance which we’ve previously featured.

Bentcousin had an early demo of Dizzy up on Soundcloud last year, but that got taken down a long time ago. Since then they’ve rerecorded their ode to Brighton Summers for a full release on Team Love records on 1st July:

Adolescent have a video for another track from last month’s Golden Halls EP. The video for Hangshai is a digital animation which matches the music it accompanies:

Finally we have another remix from IYES, who have mixed up Brooklyn’s Paperwhite, making their track Magic sound much much cooler than the original

 

Moulettes – Constellations

Moulettes constellations

Somehow, we haven’t made a proper post about the brand new Moulettes album yet. Sure, we went along to the launch gig and took loads of photos, and we posted the video and remix of Lady Vengeance a couple of weeks ago, but not a proper post, telling you what a great record the album is and imploring you to part with some of your hard earned cash in buying it.

Word from the Moulettes camp is that the best place to buy Constellations from is propermusic.com – If the band hits the top 40 in it’s first week (which it might just, with your help) then it gets into the shops, and it has a much much better chance of doing well in the longer term.

And if you’d like to buy the album from a bricks and mortar shop, and get to see the band play live too, you should head over to Union Music Store in Lewes on Saturday at 1pm, where they’ll be playing a short set and signing copies.

Album news – The Mojo Fins / Circa

The-Mojo-Fins-CIRCA-980srq

The Mojo Fins are a bit of a Brighton institution, having plied their wares around this fine city of ours for the best part of a decade. Next week sees the release of their third album Circa on Amazon Records. The follow up to 2011’s Shake The Darkness sees the band taking a step forward musically. Thanks to the production skills of Dave Eringa (best known for his work with Manic Street Preachers but who also produced the band’s The Spirit EP from a couple of years ago) the Mojo Fins sound both more focussed and more exciting – Some of the tracks, like New Order sounding lead single Introverts, have the electronica backing coming to the fore with other tracks, like the beautiful Catholic Guilt, are stripped back and almost acoustic, but always hitting the mark. The Mojo Fins have never sounded better. There’s no news yet of a local launch gig, but if we hear of anything we’re sure to let you know.

Circa by The Mojo Fins is out on Amazon Records on June 8th on download and CD.

New Music – Fear of Men, Flash Bang Band, Foreign Skin, IYES, Fujiya Miyagi, Fool’s Empire, Faux Flux, Anushka

It’s been a frustrating week for us – our internet has been playing up and we haven’t been able to make half the posts that we wanted. As time has passed we’ve ended up with more and more to add to our regular new music post, so here we go, with more music than normal:

Fear of Men have spent the past few months supporting Pains of Being Pure at Heart on tour in America. Next week the tour moves to Europe, starting in France, so to celebrate the band have recorded a French version of their single Luna:

It’s not just Fear of Men who are off to Europe on tour next week – Flash Bang Band are too. Here’s a brand new video for Young Rogue from their album Bite Your Tongue that they’ve posted to celebrate, made up of footage from last year’s European tour.

The latest new music from Foreign Skin is a video of a live remix of Draper’s Electricity. You can catch Foreign Skin performing in the flesh at the Green Door Store on 26th June supporting Bernholz:

Sticking with remixes by Brighton acts, here’s IYES remixing 1965 by Zella Day, taking something that Lana Del Ray wouldn’t be ashamed of into electro wonderland:

This Friday we’re off to see Fujiya & Miyagi, supported by AKDK. You don’t have to wait until then to hear them in the same room though. Here’s Flaws from Fujiya & Miyagi’s new album remixed by AKDK:

Fool’s Empire release their debut EP on 16th June and have a launch party at the Green Door Store on the same day. Here’s the title track This Is Not For You:

Faux Flux put out a new single yesterday. You Know follows on from the electro pop of last year’s Come Alive and Week Long War releases:

Last, but by no means least, is the massive new tune from Anushka. Mansions is taken from the band’s upcoming album Broken Circuit. Huge wobbly bass, jittery beats and gorgeous harmonies
