New Brighton Music

Another week chock full of new Brighton music for you all. First band this week is Black Biro who have just put up their new track The Organist of Agony. Black Biro play the Prince Albert this Saturday, picking up a headline slot on only their second gig:

Abattoir Blues announced their debut EP Blinded last week. They’ve shared the title track which you can hear below, and you can hear the rest of the EP when it’s released on 24th November. The band head out on tour in December, finishing up with a gig on 15th at The Haunt.

Bad Family‘s second EP, imaginatively entitled EP2 comes out on 17th November. The first taster of this is On Your Wall which was shared online yesterday:

The new The Academy of Sun album Codex Novena comes out on 9th November, and is being launched with a gig at the Hope & Ruin on 16th November. It’s preceded by a single called Some Boys Like Thunder which you can watch below:

News arrived of the new Matt Finucane EP while I’ve been typing this blog, so this is hot off the press. Threaten Me With Your Love came out yesterday on Light Crude, and will be a followed up with another already finished EP early next year

I don’t know a great deal about King Kuda. Their new EP Lately / Halfway to Neptune is on Soundcloud and Spotify, but I can’t seem to find them anywhere else online (although there are a lot of other King Kudas on twitter and Facebook). Here’s side one of their new release anyway:

The latest Fond of Rudy single came out on 13th October. To Be Mine is the follow up to July’s L O V E and the mail we received promised some live dates, although didn’t give any detail of them. We’ll keep you posted.

Finally, Jungfrau, who are supporting Red Deer People at their single launch on 10th November at the Hope & Ruin, dropped their Glass Neck EP last weekend. Here’s Oysters and Jewels from the EP:

Brighton Music Blog Great Escape / Alt Escape 2017 preview

TGE17
It’s almost that time again – the highlight in the Brighton musical calendar, when anywhere you can fit in a PA becomes venue for a few days. Yes, this coming weekend is The Great Escape Festival. We haven’t finalised our plans, but we’re probably going to end up seeing more Alt Escape stuff than proper Great Escape stuff, because that’s where the bulk of the local bands are playing. If you haven’t got yourself a ticket yet then you can get into all the Alt Escape stuff without one anyway.

New Brighton Music

Although we’re managing to be fairly regular with our posts these days we haven’t actually made a new music post since the start of November, so we’ve got a bit of catching up to do. The first track we’re going to write about is very new though – the band’s first release (although both members are very established musicians) and only went online at the weekend. The band in question is called Fröst, and they’re made up of Johanna Bramli, who currently sings with The Larsens, but was also a member of Stereolab offshoot Imitation Electric Piano and The Woo!Worths (who we wrote about in the early days of the blog) and Fujiya & Miyagi’s Steve Lewis. The track’s called Crackling On The Wire, and if you like the sound of their motoric psychedelia their first gig is at the Rose Hill on 2nd December: Continue reading
