New Brighton Music

We took a bit of a break over lockdown, but after a couple of other posts this week we’re properly back. We’ve got a bit of catching up to do with our new music, so this week’s post has over thirty tracks:

New Brighton Music

It’s been a funny few weeks since I last posted – Coronavirus has changed the world as we know it. Festival season has been decimated – Glastonbury has been cancelled this year, as has Brighton’s own Great Escape. I doubt I’ll be doing my monthly gig previews post for a bit. But there is still music to listen to, so here’s what’s new including a few Lockdown themed songs:

Knightstown / Rewire (from Rewire EP)
Man Like Malcolm / Don’t Cry For Me
Ruby Dutch / Listen To The Rain
The Ducks / Disco Fox (from Up To No Good album)
Ahsoka / Creature of the Deep
Ralph TV / Making Movements (from Cabin Fever Dreams LP)
Chxrlotte / Don’t Save Me
Mariah Casals / For You
Night House / To Be With (from Everyone is Watching from Afar LP)
Heights / Let Down
CLT DRP / Worth It (AKDK remix)
Samuel / Karma

Kate Gerrard and Beth Chesser from The Delta Bell / May You Bring Light // The New And The Old

Yumi & The Weather / Struggling

LibraLibra / Panic Buy

Sit Down / Quarantine

Brighton Music Blog Best of 2019

It’s Christmas Eve Eve, and we’ve left it a bit late to come up with our end of the year round up. Without much further ado, here it is – We say it every year, but this isn’t an ordered list, because you just can’t compare a band who’ve been releasing records for over twenty years with another who’ve just put out their first release. So hopefully there’s something in here for everyone, whether you’ve been listening to Nick Cave since he played with The Birthday Party, or you discovered CLT DRP at a sweaty night at the Green Door Store: Continue reading

September Gig Preview

It’s the third of September, which means we’re overdue for our September gig preview post.

The big gig to mention this month though is Kitfest, taking place at St George’s Church on Saturday 15th September. It’s in aid of the Kit Tarka Foundation, a charity set up by The Miserable Rich lead singer James De Malplaquet following the sad early passing of his son at just thirteen days old. The Miserable Rich have been on hiatus for a few years but are reforming for the concert which sees Fujiya & Miyagi (playing their only Brighton gig of the year) and Alice Russell & TM Juke at the top of the bill for the evening, which will be MCed by David Shrigley. Gloria Cycles are also reforming for the night – newcomers to Brighton might know the name from the vintage sign in the Basketmakers, but Gloria Cycles was also the name of one of the city’s top bands around ten years ago – alongside Jess Bishop, We Bop Choir and 1BTN DJs.
