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.

New Music

When I sat down last night to put together this week’s new music post I didn’t think it would be quite as big as it has turned out, which is why it’s taken me an extra day to post it up. In the last eight days we’ve heard about a dozen new tunes that we need to share. Good work Brighton musicians!

First up is the new tune from The Fiction Aisle. Their first proper single will be with us at some point, but in the meantime the band have put up the mournful Soon Enough The Morning Comes:

We’ve written about a few of Salt Ashes previous singles, but none have sounded as dancefloor friendly or well produced as Raided:

Silence Myself is a marked change for Fable, whose previous releases have been much noisier and intimidating, where her latest offering is beatless with just a soft synth backing. You can catch Fable playing live at the Prince Albert on 18th March. supported by Fragile Creatures.

Monoman‘s beats have been augmented with the vocal talents of Molly Burbridge on his latest track Untouchable. Head over to Monoman’s Soundcloud page to hear another track they’ve recorded together called Orion.

Krak Krak, featuring ex Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster‘s drummer Rob Ling released their debut EP Burnt At The Stake yesterday on Sonic Anhedonic records. Here’s EP opener War on Us:

Bones is the new single from Object Object. In the band’s bio, they claim to be influenced by 80s New Wave and Fleetwood Mac, which you can hear coming through on the track:

Lion Bark are giving away their new track Amongst The Many as a free download over on their bandcamp page. If you’re a fan of guitar pop, then this is for you. Lion Bark headline the newly refurbished Hope & Ruin (formerly just The Hope) on 21st March.

Last friday Record / Start put out their debut single on Post/Pop records. Rock from Afar (featured here) is backed with Followay, and is available over on the Post/pop bandcamp page. Hopefully that’s just a typo on the price of the digital download though!

IYES cover of Beyonce’s Crazy in Love first appeared in December 2013, but it’s been given a new lease of life with a remix by Ben Pearce which turned up online last week:

Talking of remixes, earlier this year Moulettes put out their single Glorious Year. Champion Fever‘s remix wasn’t put out with the single, but he has shared it with us as a free download on bandcamp:

One more remix? How about Ambassadeurs reworking of Marvin Gaye‘s classic Let’s Get It On. Ambassadeurs is playing live this saturday at the Green Door Store, supported by Foreign Skin.

Rory Indiana‘s Empiricism EP came out last September but was promoted with other tracks at the time. This week the band, who are already in the studio hard at work on their next release, put up a video to the EP’s title track:
