New Brighton Music

We’re playing catchup this week, after a gig preview last week and the Great Escape the week before that there’s a lot of ground to cover. We’ll also be introducing a simplification in how we present the tracks too, so that hopefully we don’t get so behind in future.

November / December gig preview

For this month’s gig preview post we’re actually going to cover November and December. Generally there aren’t as many gigs in December, and we’re normally distracted with end of year stuff on the blog, so it’s seems appropriate to cover two months in one post now. Continue reading

July Brighton Gig Previews

We don’t do gig previews that much any more, mainly because we don’t get out nearly as much as we used to. We’ve got a big feature coming, but it’s taking a little while to get together, so to tide you over until then, here’s a few gigs that have caught our eye over the coming month:

Tomorrow night (Monday 10th July), Bleeding Hearts almost celebrate their fifteen birthday at The Rialto. As they put it: “We’d planned to host an alldayer only to find out that our adversaries had used their telemeters to evil effect. Due to dimentional complications we will not be celebrating the actual anniversary but instead our inability to celebrate our longeveness.”. On the bill are Garden Centre, Academy of the Sun, Gary Goodman and Sam Cutting. Continue reading

Brighton Rocks #6 – Animal House

Untitled (3)es.jpg

What’s the best thing about Brighton?

The people. We were incredibly warmly welcomed into a big group of friends as soon as we arrived and it’s never been difficult to meet a friend here. The music scene follows along that same vein. Continue reading

New Brighton Music

It’s been a fortnight since we made a new music post, and as usual when it’s been slightly longer, somehow there’s disproportionately more tunes to write about (and that’s not counting the ones we’re missing out because the Spotify / WordPress plugin isn’t working for us these days). So without further ado, our first track this week is another new track from the upcoming GAPS album. If We Remain is the latest track the band have shared from As It Is, which comes out on 22nd June (according to the iTunes preorder page)

New Brighton Music

Another week, another new music round up. We’re kicking off this week with the new single from Black Honey which came out last Friday called Hello Today. We’ll be down the front for Black Honey’s sold out show next Thursday at Patterns. See you there.

Next up is Fear of Men who are off on tour again, covering Europe in September and October (stopping off at Patterns on 15th October), then off to America in November. To celebrate they’ve shared a video for another track from their Fall Forever album. This is Sane:

Bad Family have just shared their second single called I’m a Drunk. It seems that everyone I’m writing about is playing live soon – you can catch them at The Hope & Ruin next Monday.

The Hundredth Anniversary‘s first new music in a long time showed up a week or two ago. After I Was Thrown In The River is more melodic and less shoegaze than their early stuff, and is the first taster of their upcoming album Sea State Pictures.

The new Animal House EP Sorry comes out on 18th November. They’ve put out a video for the track Heavy which you can see below. We’d write about when they’re playing live, but they’re probably on stage at the Prince Albert as I’m typing this:

A Drop of Blood in a Bowl of Milk is the new EP from Whiskey for the Wounded which came out on 22nd September. If you missed the launch last week, you can catch them at the next Indie Noir night at the Verdict on 13th October.

Last but not least we had news in a few weeks ago of End Call, an album released on cassette by Bloody Death. Turn The Tables is the track that they’re choosing to showcase the album with on bandcamp, but the rest of the tape isn’t all trashy guitar – there’s some mellower stuff on there too.

New Brighton Music

Have you all recovered from The Great Escape yet? I think my trainers are still wet from thursday’s downpours. Anyway, here’s this week’s roundup of new music. There’ll actually be two new music posts this week because we’ve had so many bands contact us that there’s just too much for one post.

First up is Milk & Biscuits, who’ve been missing in action since the release of their Lick Tape in spring 2014. They’re back with a double A side split single on Lick Music with a track called Towns are Concrete Holes, which is out on 1st June. The flip is a track from Octopuses which we’ll feature in our other post we make this week.

Milk & Biscuits share a few members with Prince Vaseline, who have a whole album coming out in June. The album’s called A Naturally Coloured Pleasure and will be released on Sunhorse Records. Here’s the first taster of it, the psychedelic Radio On:

Atomic is the new track from Alphabets Heaven, featuring London vocalist Segilola. It features on King Deluxe’s latest compilation, and also got picked out by Bandcamp as one of their tracks of the week.

Time for T launched their new single Tom Tom at the Green Door Store last week and premiered the video on Spindle. They’re currently in Portugal on a mini-tour of Europe where they seem to play even more than they do locally!

Flash Bang Band are back with their first new material since their debut album. Spooky Action at a Distance is out on 14th June, and apparently forms a bridge between the lo fi sound of their debut and new material being recorded.

Bichon Frise is the new single from ElleKaye. I haven’t been provided with release dates or labels, but we’ll fill you in with more info as we get it:

Animal House are Australian originally, but have relocated to Brighton. In an effort to socialise with the locals, they’ve made a video featuring roller derby team Brighton Rockers. Figure It Out comes out on May 25th:

After a number of remixes over the past year or so, Kudu Blue put out their first self penned track earlier this year, a chilled pop number called Bones. Head over to their soundcloud page where there’s also a remix by Luo.
