New Brighton Music

Nobody releases anything in December. Or so I thought. I figured that after putting up my end of year list I could come back in January to a relatively sleep start, but it seems that everybody else was thinking differently.

Brighton Music Blog 2018 Highlights

I’m not a fan of end of year lists. There’s the forced ranking of things, introducing subjectivity and pitting people against each other. There’s the fact that you might not remember things from the start of the year as well as recent tracks, or that some songs sounded great in the sunshine but right now it’s cold, wet and miserable. So instead, here’s a few tracks from 2018 that are highlights for us. No particular order, no claims that one is better than another, just what we think are a bunch of great tunes. There’s a few maybe more obvious bands missing (naming no names) – it’s been a brilliant year for Brighton Music – but some of the bands you might be thinking of haven’t been in touch, or haven’t got back to us when we’ve been in touch. Given how successful they’ve been they obviously haven’t needed a blog like us, and it’s not like we’ve been short of great music to post this year. Anyway, we’ve tried to post bandcamp links where we can, so if you like what you can hear, you can click through and buy from the site where the biggest proportion of the price goes back to the artist:

Fröst – Trail Away

The Fiction Aisle – Gone Today

Yumi & The Weather – Hustle

La Lune – He Breathes Colour When I Feel So Grey

Crayola Lectern – Secrets

Ex-Display Model – Autopilot

Blood Red Shoes – God Complex

LibraLibra – Animali

Projector – Break Your Own Heart

Anneka – Burst

The Go! Team – Chico’s Radical Decade

Moon Panda – Gun

Wax Machine – Time

Cate Ferris – Rise

Orchards – Double Vision

 Our Girl – In My Head

Inwards – When She Flashes Her Smile On Me

Steve Mason – Walking Away From Love

New Brighton Music

We’re playing catchup again this week after our holidays last week, and it seems that we missed a flurry of activity, so once again we’re going to keep things pretty brief, limiting our words to just what you need to know about the tracks.

The biggest news this week is that Blood Red Shoes have a new single. It’s called God Complex and is out now on Jazz Life:

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.
