New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s new music post, two weeks after our last one – we were out of the country last week though, so we’re playing catchup a bit now. Our first tune this week is from Brighton supergroup Alien Stadium, made up of Steve Mason and Primal Scream‘s Martin Duffy. Their first release is a track called This One’s for the Humans, a lolloping almost-baggy almost-bluesy number which is taken from a mini LP called Livin’ in Elizabethan Times which gets released on 1st December. Have a dig around for the version that’s up on Spotify which clocks in over six minutes long and gets a much more psychedelic groove on.

Next up is the return of the incredible Dark Horses who are back with some ghostly krautrock vibes. Their new single VIII comes out on Tricky Spirits Records:

The Fiction Aisle describe their new single Some Things Never Die as having “Winehouse-does-Spiritualized narco-pop vibes”. There’s more Amy than J Spaceman to these ears, but it’s every bit as lovely as everything that’s gone before in the world of the Fiction Aisle. If you’re as big fans as us then we’ll see you down the front at the Hope & Ruin on December 13th.

Dig is the sultry new single Black Honey, who currently on the road with Royal Blood playing huge venues across the country (they stop off at the Brighton Centre on 29th November). It’s coming out on white 7″ on 14th December, but you can pre-order here now.

Psylhouette first graced our pages back in the summer with their single Asking. They’ve teamed up with Berlin vocalist Juli Holz once again for their new EP entitled Everything & Nothing. Here’s the EP opener Rain:

Knightstown‘s new single Border came out last Friday. The album is due next year on Fatcat records – we’ll bring you more details of that as we have them

We gave the most recent Projector single Love a mention back in August but that feels like an age away – it didn’t actually come out until October and the video for it has only just come too. They’re on our list of bands that we MUST get around to seeing in 2018, so we’re more than happy to give it another plug:

Pussyliquor wrote to us a month ago with details of their debut double A side single, but streams have only just gone online this week. Get Out is backed with another track called Kitty Kitty and comes out on 8th December. You can catch them live on 1st December at the Haunt supporting Los Albertos.

It’s been about three years since we last wrote about Anushka, and they had dropped so far off our radar that we missed Do You Have Soul? that they put up last month. It’s obviously all systems go with them now because it’s been quickly followed up with another new track called Mountains:

Next up we have Cannibal Song by White Room, taken from their forthcoming double EP Eight (out this year the PR blurb said without giving a date, but there isn’t that much of this year left). White Room go on their first ever headline tour later this month, playing a date at the Hope & Ruin on 27th November:

No So Bad by Johnny Kills came out last month, but even a mid October release stretches their claim of being a summer single a bit:

These Blind Giants are a new Brighton band who’ve just released their debut single Witch Magnet . You can catch them playing at Brighton Electric on 18th November.

Bella Spinks has been a fixture on the Brighton scene for a number of years, but she’s only just gearing up to release her debut album. The first single to be taken from it is  Noble Lie, out now on Spotify, but with a live piano version here (since Spotify links always seem to look terrible)

Hello! We’ve got a whole load of new music to share this week, so I’m going to skip the preamble (which is normally the bit that takes the longest to write anyway) and jump straight in with Hello Hello – the new single from Fickle Friends:

Brighton Music Blog 2016 Top Ten 10 – 6

It’s the middle of December! That makes it the time of year when we should be doing some kind of end of year round up, and here’s the first part of it. As always it’s completely unscientific – it’s just what’s floated our boat this year. Artists might have released a single, an EP, a whole album, or maybe just played some gigs that we absolutely loved. The first part is covering number ten through to six, with the top five coming sometime nearer to Christmas.
10. Cold Pumas (Hanging Valley LP)
9. My Life Story (24 Hour Deflower single)
8. Prince Vaseline (On an Island EP)
7. Black Honey (Headspin EP / Hello Today single)
6. Sea Bed (The Art of Living EP)

It’s actually been a few weeks since we’ve done a new music roundup, with a bit of variety getting back into the things we’re posting. Continuing in that vein, with any luck we’ll have an interview coming soon with our first artist this week Fujiya & Miyagi. Their new release EP2 comes out this Friday, and they’ve just shared another track from it. This is the self referential Extended Dance Mix:

Without any warning (to us at least) Sea Bed put out a new EP last Friday. The EP is entitled The Art of Living, and it includes recent single Geneva which we featured in a new music roundup a few weeks ago. Here’s the title track:

We also included Hello Today by Black Honey in one of our recent roundups, but that was before they shared the brilliant video for the track:

Jacko Hooper‘s After The Storm EP came out at the end of September. Here’s the video for the lead track from the release Time Will Tell Us Enough

We don’t know a great deal about Preston Parris who sent us over his EP under the name Preston Outatime, but we do know that we quite like his Enceladus EP of instrumental hip hop:

Gang put out a double A side single out on November 25th. Dead (featured here) will be backed with another new track Enough Nothing. You can catch Gang live at the Hope & Ruin on November 4th.

Last Friday Kanzi put out their new EP “Sketches, Early Summer“. The lead track is called March and is backed with another three tracks of lush electronica:

Last but by no means least is Who You Are by Tim Woodbridge which came out last week, which reminded us a bit of the last C Duncan album, which is no bad thing at all:

 

Black Honey at Patterns gallery

We don’t get out nearly as much as we used to, and haven’t been able to support the live scene as much as we ought. Last night though, we pitched ourselves up in the front row at Patterns to catch Black Honey, on the road just in time for their new single Hello Today. They played to a sold out venue for over an hour – not bad for a band who haven’t even had an album out yet, and while their live set gets bigger and better each time we see them they haven’t forgotten their roots, with the old pink flamingo nestled in the back of the set. Here’s our pics, as usual, click through to view large:

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.

Happy Easter! Can you still say Happy Easter a few days after Easter? Who knows. I’m saying it regardless. Anyway, here’s this week’s new music roundup, kicking off with the brand new track from Black Honey. This is called All My Pride and is taken from their forthcoming Headspin EP:
