New Music – Fujiya & Miyagi, Tigercub, Tyrannosaurus Dead, Ewan Hoozarmi, Abraham Moughrabi, Morning Smoke, Prince Vaseline, IYES

At the start of the week we posted what we said was “probably” our last New Music post of the month. As it turns out, there’s been so many great tunes in our in box we’ve decided to squeeze in another.

This evening we got very excited when Fujiya & Miyagi posted a brand new remix of Daggers from their latest album Artificial Sweeteners put together by Stephen Morris from New Order

Blood Red Shoes have launched their own label called Jazz Life, and the first release will be out on 1st December from Tigercub with a newly recorded version of live favourite Centrefold:

Tyrannosaurus Dead‘s new album Flying Ant Day is out a week next monday. To get everyone in the mood they’ve shared the track Bagged & Boarded:

Ewan Hoozarmi has a new free download up on Soundcloud. Reaching Dragons is five minutes of funky electro-house:

As well as tomorrow night being Normanton Street’s EP launch at The Haunt and Spit Shake Sister’s single launch at Bleach, it’s also the next Spectrum at the Dome Studio Theatre, which this month is headlined by Speak Galactic. Joining them on the bill is Abraham Moughrabi, who’s recorded a live video of Cross The Line for the Site and Sound part of Spectrum in advance of the night:

One of the supports at the Spit Shake Sisters launch tomorrow is Morning Smoke. They got in touch to let us know about their new single Hunger which is out on December 1st:

As I’m writing this, I’m missing out on Prince Vaseline playing live at the Prince Albert supporting 80s Matchbox spin off group Piano Wire. If you didn’t make the gig either (or maybe if you did and you’re reading this later), here’s the video for their new track Orchid:

Finally a new remix by IYES who are on the brink of releasing some new material of their own very soon. Here’s their taken on Jack Garratt‘s Worry, which they’ve turned into a much more upbeat, dancable affair:

First listen : Normanton Street – Much Respect EP

We’ve given Normanton Street mentions before when they’ve popped onto our radar, and now we’re happy to host the premiere of their new Much Respect EP.

The six track EP comes out tomorrow and features (in their words) “three distinct vocals, jazz influenced guitars, warm bass grooves, tight rhythmic drums along with memorable saxophone melodies”. Laid back opening tracks Fly Lady (Get Money) and New Dawn contrast Ned and Nicholson’s rap with Phoebe’s soulful vocal, then No Drama takes things in a jazzier direction. Grass is Greener serves up some old school hip hop before Rakim (The 26th Year) takes things up a notch, and the stripped back acoustic R’n’B of This Wolf is the perfect showcase for Phoebes voice. Take a listen for yourself below:

The band have been on the road playing gigs in support of the new EP this week, playing in Nottingham, London, Leicester, Manchester and Sheffield, but return back to Brighton for the official launch party tomorrow night at the Haunt, with support coming from Time for T, New Street Adventure and Wolflung.

New Music – Clowwns, Eagles for Hands, J Tropic, Black Honey, Nightkites, Mount Bank

Here’s what’s likely to be our last new music post of October, with half a dozen brand new tunes for you to feast your ears on.

First up is the subtly renamed Clowwns (formerly with just the one w), with a video for their upcoming single Shame on You. They’ve been one of the city’s best live bands for a while, so it’s great to hear the music getting out there.

Spirit Hips is the new single from Eagles for Hands. The track is less housey than the other singles that he’s put out this year, but still packs a massive dancefloor punch. It comes out on 17th November, and is followed the following Monday (24th) with a gig at Sticky Mike’s.

Who U Are is the third and final track from J Tropic‘s Love Up EP, which comes out today on Duly Noted. We’ve featured the other tracks – Love Up and Solid Gold, and the third track doesn’t disappoint.

Sticking with Duly Noted records, we’ve got a new track from Black Honey, which is going to feature on their debut EP Sleep Forever. Bloodlust is the fourth track on the EP which is going to be onsale at upcoming gigs:

Next up we’ve got a track from a brand new Brighton band called Nightkites. Drones is the lead track from an EP of the same name which is available to download now from Soundcloud. If you were a fan of Burial, this should be right up your street.

Finally, we have the a new track from Mount Bank, foxing our attempts to write about it giving it a title of the symbol of a crescent. The track is some lovely ambient electronica, unassumingly aimless for the first minute before a repeated piano motif brings everything together:

New Music

Here’s this week’s dose of new music, starting off with a couple of releases which are out today.

Great Pagans new album Cupid In Error is released on Anti Ghost Moon Ray today. You can hear the whole lot over on their soundcloud, but as a taster, here’s album opener December:

Eva Bowan‘s new EP is also out today. The EP is entitled Hyperspectacle EP and it’s been released on KLDSCP records. Here’s lead track Lacerta XI.

On a vaguely KLDSCP related theme, here’s 316 by Mount Bank, a new electronic project featuring Physics House Band’s Sam Organ as one of their number, and Luo (some of who’s previous releases came out on KLDSCP) with Parallelogram.

Dog in the Snow‘s new single Africa came out earlier this month, and the band have just put the b-side up on Soundcloud. We reckon Concrete Walls is just as good as it’s flip, but we’ll let you judge for yourself:

Feel It is the new track from High Tyde. You can catch the band supporting Little Comets at The Concorde 2 on 31st October.

Finally we have another remix of Play by Fickle Friends, following on from last week’s remix by Foreign Skin. Brazil’s Cesare injects the track with a bit of South American sunshine and turns it into a summery house tune:

New Videos – Spit Shake Sisters / Blasphemer and GAPS / She Bears a Flower

It’s only been less than 24 hours since our last new music post but in that time two of our favourite bands have posted up videos to their new singles.Rather than wait until next week to post them up we thought we’d share them now

Spit Shake Sisters new track Blasphemer is officially their debut single, and comes out on Dead Fun Records on 31st October. The launch party for the single is at Bleach on the same day with Strange Cages and Tombes also on the bill.

We shared the audio for the new GAPS track She Bears a Flower a week ago, but here’s the video, directed by Walt McNee. Apparently tickets have almost sold out for their upcoming debut London show, so if you’re planning on getting tickets, don’t hold back.

Dark Horses live at the Hope

You’ll have read our interview with Ali Tollervey last weekend and know we like this band, so it’s no surprise we were at the Hope for Dark Horses‘ stellar show to promote Ali’s exhibition and their new album ‘Hail Lucid State’.

For those not in the know, Dark Horses produce gritty sexy rock music, somewhere in-between kraut rock and gothic new wave, with lead singer Lisa Elle giving out vibes of Patti Smith and Jim Morrison.  Sunday night was special, with the band on top form playing a bundle of songs from their two albums, kicking off with the latest single Saturn Returns and ending with a dark moody cover of the Doors’ Hello, I love you, in amongst an array of visuals and light effects.

Brighton Music Blog took a double pack of camera folk to capture the spirit. If you head to the Hope, downstairs  you can see Ali Tollervey’s photography of the band, but for now you have these.
