Time for another new music post. This time around we’ve got new ones from Orchards (who also announced details of their new album this week, which you can pre-order from their website), and Wax Machine (which can be pre-ordered through their bandcamp page amongst other places) who also appear on the new Hill album which is included too. Oh, and for Penelope Isles fans we’ve also got the new Ciel track, produced by Jack Wolter.

Welcome to our first new music post of 2020. We’re on catchup somewhat, having not made any new music posts in December or so far in January, so we hope you’re sitting comfortably. We’re kicking off with two albums, the first from some Brighton legends who’ve kept us waiting for six and a half since their last record, and the other from the ambient solo project of one of our city’s most prolific drummers:
Electric Soft Parade / Stages
Muddy Suzuki / Endleofta
Beat Hotel / Bury It Deep
Guru / Don’t Talk Alex Banks / Falling Down Klae / Take it Back Thrillhouse / One of These Days Liemba / Ever Evolving BUNKR / Solitary Drift (from The Initiation Well Remixed album) Ornament / Ghost of What We Knew Fukushima Dolphin / The Furry Side (from The Furry Side EP) La Lune / Holding onto U Speedboat / For Jean Thyla / December Ross Patience / Dark Days (from Dark Days EP) Hannah Renton / Skyline Leroy Horns / A Simple Joy Good Guy Clarence / Pure Ego Death (from Split Habit EP) El Train / Out of My Head
Last night Clowwns played at the Hope & Ruin (supported by Mum Dad and the Kids, but we got there a bit late for them because Clowwns played a two sets). The band, who disppeared off the scene for a few years are back for 2020, and played a mix of old and new songs, all as tight and angular as they ever were. Lighting was provided by the seemingly omnipresent Innerstrings (who’s also going to be hard at work next weekend running Lewes Psych Fest, alongside last night’s promoter Melting Vinyl).
