New Music – Ital Tek, Ancient Times, Samuel Organ & Caveman Genius, Aashton

Despite it being only the first week of January we’ve already got loads to share with you. A couple of the tracks are ones that passed us by a little bit over Christmas, but 2014’s new music is appearing already

When we picked up on Ital Tek‘s latest Soundcloud upload Golden, it was being given away as a free Christmas download. It looks like the download option has now gone, but it’s still there to listen to, and it’s still a great track:

Ancient Times new track Healer is brand new though, just being posted up in the last twenty four hours. It’also been picked out by Fake DIY to feature in today’s Neu post.

Samuel Organ from Physics House Band continues to be one of Brighton’s most prolific musicians, this time collaborating with Caveman Genius for a new three track EP for download called Dune Drug Rituals

Finally, at the end of last year Aashton put up the first track from his free download EP1, in advance of a full EP called Show You out soon on Lounging Records. All U Need is up now as a free download, with the promise of another track from the EP1 being uploaded soon.

resonatorsThe big gig on Thursday night is Passenger. The Let Her Go singer is playing a sold out hometown gig at the Concorde 2 (actually he’s playing two, with the second next Monday, which is also sold out).

New Music – Dog in the Snow and more

Here’s our latest post of the seemingly never-ending stream of fantastic new music from Brighton.

First up is a brand new dream pop download from Dog in the Snow. Fire in the Sky was produced by Steve Hillier, best known for his work in the nineties as a third of Dubstar, but the track owes more to Bat for Lashes and those who have followed her – haunting vocals, fuzzy guitars, a simple piano line and pounding drums. 

Next up we’ve got a remix of Keep You by GAPS. The Paradise Remix brings in the beats earlier, loses some of the vocals and makes the whole thing far more dancefloor friendly.

After writing this weekend about how much we love Luo, we’re a little bit embarrassed to admit that we missed him putting out another EP a few weeks ago. Imprints is free four track download that shows that electronica needn’t be cold an inhuman.

Yesterday Ed Prosek announced the release of a new EP. Willow tree is five tracks of gentle acoustic folk, which you can listen to on bandcamp and buy on download or limited cd.

Ancient Times have a new 7″ out next monday. Double A side Nightschool / Hieroglyphic has two tracks of unashamedly Smiths influenced indie which you can order now through their bandcamp site. 

Freefall is a new single from brother / sister due BASA. Things start a bit synth-pop but by halfway through things are definitely dubstep. 

Last, but by no means least is Embers by Momotaro, who have been tipped in the second edition of Green Door Store’s new monthly zine as “Brighton Band To Watch”. At the moment, all of Momotaro’s music on Soundcloud is free to download, so go and feast your ears!
