Welcome to our first new music post of 2020. We’re on catchup somewhat, having not made any new music posts in December or so far in January, so we hope you’re sitting comfortably. We’re kicking off with two albums, the first from some Brighton legends who’ve kept us waiting for six and a half since their last record, and the other from the ambient solo project of one of our city’s most prolific drummers:
Electric Soft Parade / Stages
Muddy Suzuki / Endleofta
Beat Hotel / Bury It Deep
Guru / Don’t Talk Alex Banks / Falling Down Klae / Take it Back Thrillhouse / One of These Days Liemba / Ever Evolving BUNKR / Solitary Drift (from The Initiation Well Remixed album) Ornament / Ghost of What We Knew Fukushima Dolphin / The Furry Side (from The Furry Side EP) La Lune / Holding onto U Speedboat / For Jean Thyla / December Ross Patience / Dark Days (from Dark Days EP) Hannah Renton / Skyline Leroy Horns / A Simple Joy Good Guy Clarence / Pure Ego Death (from Split Habit EP) El Train / Out of My Head
Almost our last New Music round up of the year – of the decade, thinking about things. Not much gets released in December, so there’ll probably be maybe one more, then we’ll have some kind of end of year post, which I haven’t really thought about yet. Anyway, here’s what to listen to this week:
Hanya / Dream Wife ARXX / Swallowed The Sun (taken from Wrong Girl, Honey EP) Beach Riot / Stuck Inside Meljoann / Assfuck the Boss Sunny / Infinitely Endless (title track from the album of the same name) Johnny Kills / Right Now (taken from Panic EP) Dead Skin Sessions / London, England (from Health & Safety EP) The Academy of Sun / Rose Devoid of Form niff / Stuck in my head Ahsoka / Beg For It RALPH TV / Loverboy
The flow of new music has slowed recently, as it always does this time of year. The blogs are otherwise occupied with end of year lists (ours will be coming soon), but there’s still a few bits and pieces out there to tell you about.
King Porter Stomp‘s new single Warning, which features the talents of reggae legend Prince Fatty came out last week on Feet Up records on 10″ and download. It’s backed with a Dub remix by dub producer Nick Manasseh.
Yesterday saw the release of GAPS new single She Bears a Flower. We posted up the video for the single back in October, so we won’t repeat ourselves. Instead what we have for you is the b-side We Are Here – the most ambient thing we’ve heard from the band so far:
Finally, now it’s December it was inevitable that there would be some Christmas music coming. Random Acts of Vinyl have put out a four track 10″ EP with their bands each penning an original festive tune. We’ve got the audio of Fire Eyes‘ O Falling Snow below and the EP also has contributions from Beat Hotel, The Delta Bell and Palm Springs. Details of how you can get hold of the EP will be in the next blog we put up later this evening.
