Weekend Gig Picks – Gaps and Fear of Men

Once upon a time, when we used  to be far more prolific on the blog we used to write a weekly gig picks column. Every now and then we revive it when we feel it’s worthwhile, and this weekend two of our favourite bands are playing at the Prince Albert on different nights, so here we are.

Tomorrow (or thursday, if you’re not reading this the day it was posted) Love Thy Neighbour are putting on GAPS supported by Chelou and Native Ray. Their new EP of remixes of A World Away came out last Friday, and the vinyl edition of their album In, Around The Moments comes out this Friday, so they’ve got lots to celebrate.

Then on Sunday it’s Fear of Men‘s turn, courtesy of Melting Vinyl and Teen Creeps. They’re supported by Girl Ray and Tiger Lion. Their new LP Fall Forever comes out on 3rd of June and they’ve just shared the video for Island, the first taste of the new material. By our calculations, they haven’t played a hometown gig in over eighteen months but we bet it’ll be worth the wait.

New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s dose of new music for you all, slightly bigger than normal because I didn’t get around to posting last week. Our first track is the new one from Sea Bed called Moving Ghosts, which gets a release on Four Thieves records on vinyl on 11th March (which you can pre-order here):

Miamigo have shared some more 80s-tastic synthpop. This is Pot Luck:

Thyla have followed up last year’s Us and Them with Car Crash, an ambitious, angular slice of guitar pop:

Great Pagans premiered their new single over on Steregum last week. The band are releasing  Call of the Wild on Anti-Ghost Moon Ray on 11th March.

Tuska are the third band we’re writing about who are releasing their new single on 11th March. Their new track is called We Could Be Alone, and is a must-listen for fans of Tame Impala. If you like what you hear you can catch the band at Sticky Mike’s on 4th March:

Landslide is the debut single from Loa Loa, a raucous three minute garage cacophony committed to tape at Brighton Electric

Changing tack completely, this is White Peaks, with their new dreamy electronic pop song Easy:

Nicolas and the Saints are releasing their album Years in the Making at the end of the month (or at the start of the month if you pledged to their indiegogo campaign). The album was literally years in the making, with recording taking place over seven years. Here’s the album’s penultimate track Been Hurt Before:

Warsaw Radio are returning to their Irish roots for the launch of their new single Down by the Sea. Their mini tour starts this time next week and takes in Dundalk, Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway:

Finishing up this post we have three videos – Just posted today was GAPS video for their track A World Away, from their album In Around The Moments:

Next we have the fuzzy shoegaze of Tuval‘s In My Head:

And finally we have a hip hop track sung in Albanian. This is Ledio, Te Lutem! by Via Tirana:
