New Brighton Music

I had a thought this week that I should make all my new music posts on the same day of the week, and then they’d be New Music Mondays or something like that, but then I realised I could never be so organised as to organise my week like that, so we’re stuck with New Brighton Music as the post name, and they’ll come out as I manage to get the time in front of my computer. Anyway, our first track this week is from Dog in the Snow, a song called Magic taken from their upcoming album Consume Me due later this year:

A few years after their first collaboration, Pete Fij and Terry Bickers have returned with some new material. There’s an utterly gorgeous single – Let’s Get Lost Together – all chiming guitars, beautiful harmonies and a lovely world weariness, that they describe as a Bromance song. It’s taken from an album called We Are All Millionaires which comes out on July 14th which we’ll definitely be writing more about in time.

Alyss‘ new EP Alchemy came out earlier this month and is packed with some of the best bass and beats we’ve heard in a while. You can check out the lead single Pyramid from it here:

At completely the other end of the musical spectrum are new Brighton band LOM. Accompanied by some beautiful animation, There is a Place is taken from the band’s Kingdom EP which is out now.

White Room were one of a number of bands whose people got in touch to ask if we’d be catching up with them at the Great Escape. We do our best, but unfortunately we didn’t make it to their gig, but to make up for it, here’s their new single Take Me Away:

We did make it up to the Black Dove to see Bloom though. As well playing three shows at the Great Escape, they’ve also put up a video for their new single Such a Shame, and finished posting all of the tracks for their Letting Go charity remix album too.

I’m not sure about their name, and I’m even less sure about their graphics, but Tidal Rave‘s new EP Neon Pants Party is actually a pretty good synth pop record. I say “record”, but apparently it’s been released on a USB stick inside a UV wristband that you can wear out raving. Obviously.

We’ll hopefully have the third in our Brighton Rocks series for you some time this week, but until then, here’s a regular dose of new music. Our first track is the new one from Fröst, their third in about six months. Delta Antenna wouldn’t sound completely out of place if it had been put out by Steve Lewis’ other band Fujiya & Miyagi:

Demob Happy are back with a new single to keep us on our toes while they work on their new album. You can listen to Dead Dreamers below, and catch them supporting Gang of Youths at the Green Door Store on 30th May:

Time for T have finished recording their album Hoping Something Anything, but it won’t be out until September. Here’s the new single to be taken from it though, called Wax:

The riff heavy Just The Once is the new single from Projector. You can catch Projector at an Alt Escape show sometime next week – keep an eye on their facebook page for more details.

We can tell you when Thyla‘s Alt Escape show is though – they’re on at the Mucky Duck on Friday night. There’s a good chance that they’ll play their new single Ferris Wheels:

This Party‘s new EP Lover comes out next monday, and they’re celebrating with with a show at the Prince Albert on Tuesday (16th May):

Momotaro‘s new EP Between Places came out last week, and we shared the lead track Gone Places in a previous new music post. Here’s another for you called Invisible:

GAPS new album As It Is comes out next month, but unfortunately there’s no Brighton launch. You can console yourself with another track that they’ve shared from the record, Hide Behind The Years:

Last, but by no means least is another track from Bloom‘s Letting Go remix series, which I think we may have missed some of. The remixes are on sale for charity, so go and take a listen to them and put your hand in your pocket. This week’s 12 minute long epic remix is courtesy of Nmesme. Oh, and you can catch Bloom’s Alt Escape Show on Thursday night at the Marlborough:

Another week, another new music roundup. We’re starting off this week  with news of the new EP from Momotaro, who have been fairly quiet for the last few years. The new EP is called Places and is out on 5th May, and the first track from it that they’ve shared is the lovely Gone Days.

Next up, another longtime favourite of Brighton’s electronic music work, Foreign Skin, has shared her remix of Luo‘s track Lucid Dream:

Yumi & The Weather have put up the B-side to their upcoming single Distant Days, a track called In The Night. The single is out on the 12th May, but there’s a launch party at the Hope & Ruin on Monday 8th.

The New Faith‘s first proper single comes out on 2nd June and is called To Sad To Be Young. The video features nudity, although it has been pixelated to get past YouTub’s restrictions. There’s a pre-release gig for the single this Saturday at the Prince Albert.

Black Biro are a new Brighton band made up of members of older Brighton bands, who descibre their sound as Gothadelia. Thye’ve posted up a few demos on Soundcloud and you can hear A Door above My Name below, and they play their first ever gig at the Prince Albert this Saturday on at 8.30:

Orchards new track is called Darling, which marries their familiar guitar sounds with 80s synths. You can see Orchards live this weekend at the Bad Pond Festival, alongside the likes of Luo, TEEFF, Patchwork Natives, and a whole load of other bands

It was only in our last new music post that we shared a new GAPS track, but they’re already back with a second new track this month. Much like Shatter, The View showcases GAPS’ more electronic side:

OMG it’s a new Fond of Rudy track. Sorry – weak joke, but I couldn’t resist. OMG is the name of the band’s new single, out now. You can catch them at Patterns on 3rd May supporting Cassia.

Sulky Boy have only just come onto our radar even though they’ve been going for a while now. They’ve got a new EP out tomorrow on Echochamp called Sulky Boys Play Songs of Love, and you can hear Drunk Dial taken from it here:

Finally, the new single from Atlas Wynd comes out this weekend according to the mailout I got earlier from Resident. Mona Lisa is out on 7″ backed by I’ve Had Enough. Unfortunately we missed telling you about the launch, which was last night at Sticky Mikes. Oops.

Happy Easter! Are you still allowed to say that once you’re past Easter Sunday? Who knows. You’re all still enjoying an Easter Bank Holiday, that’s for sure (unless you’re working, in which case I apologise). Anyway, new music. It’s been a long time since the last proper release from Yumi & The Weather, but Distant Days is worth the wait. Cool-as-ice vocals flutter over effervescent electronic beats. It’s coming out on super-limited 7″ on MIOHMI records on 12th May and is backed with another new track called In The Night:

Next we have the first new music from GAPS taken from their upcoming second album. Shatter starts off with an electronic shimmer then settles into skitterish electronic beats:

The latest Wax Machine track came out quite a few weeks ago, but it’s only just popped up on our radar. Magic Machine is eight minutes of full on psych, with a video to match:

It’s taken us a little while to get around to writing about the Gender Roles EP, Planet X-ray, and consequently we missed telling you to go and see them live with Broadbay a couple of nights ago. The tour is still on though, with dates in Glasgow, Huddersfield, Harlow, Swindon, Birmingham and Bristol still to go. The EP is out on limited blue cassette, which you can order from the bandcamp link, and the lead track is called Skin:

Holly Isobelle sent us a preview of her debut single The Remains of our Love a few weeks ago, but it’s only just gone online publicly this week. The PR email said that it was influenced by Two Door Cinema Club and Lucy Rose, but we can hear a bit of Sophie Ellis Bextor in there too, which is no bad thing in our book.

Tilda Allie is Swedish but Brighton based. She’s signed to Normanton Street affiliated QM Records and has some gorgeous soulful pop out in the shape of Further Than You:

Hetton‘s debut EP comes out on 29th May. It’s called Through The Cracks, and you can watch the video for the lead track Weeds, which reminds us a lot of The Kings of Convenience, here.

Finally, to round things off we have another track from Anneka‘s upcoming Life Force EP. Life Force is the second track shared from the EP, following The End of It which we wrote about a few weeks back:

 

 

New Brighton Albums – Nick Cave, Fujiya & Miyagi, British Sea Power, Emma Gatrill, King Porter Stomp and The Physics House Band

We do our best to keep on top of new tracks to share with you all, but it’s about time we made a separate post about new albums too. Some of these have been mentioned in passing already when tracks have come out in advance of the releases, but this will be the first mention for some of the others.
lovelycreatures_15-1-768x512The first of the new mentions is a best of from Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. They’ve had a best of out before, all the way back in 1998, but this new release covers material from 1984 through to 2014. Lovely Creatures is out on May 5th and will come in a variety of packages – a double cd, a triple LP, a 3 cd + DVD package, and a limited edition which comes with a 256 page hardback book of photos and essays. In Nick Cave’s own words “There are some people out there who just don’t know where to start with The Bad Seeds. Others know the catalogue better than I do! This release is designed to be a way into three decades of music making. That’s a lot of songs. The songs we have chosen are the ones that have stuck around, for whatever reason. Some songs are those that demand to be played live. Others are lesser songs that are personal favourites of ours. Others are just too big and have too much history to leave out. And there are those that didn’t make it, poor things. They are the ones you must discover by yourselves.”

It’s been less than a week since our last new music round up, but this week we have NINE new tracks to share. So without further ado… We got our first taste of Fröst last November when they shared their debut track Crackling on the Wire. Three months later they’ve shared another – this one is called Keratin:

Welcome to this week’s new music post. As usual it’s a real mixed bag, but this week it’s got more of an electronic slant. First up is a new release from Ital Tek, which came out this week but is made up of recordings from sessions from his album Hollowed in 2014/2015. The EP is called The Speed of Darkness, which is also the name of the ambient opening track, but the bandcamp page where you can buy the EP jumps straight to Time Out which is more familiar techno territory:
