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:

Nancy / Clic Clac
Fujiya & Miyagi / Gammon
Penelope Isles / Gnarbone
BUNKR / For The Birds
Laundromat / Humans
HANYA / Dream Wife
Blood Red Shoes / Howl
Orchards / Young
Barnacles / Manatee
CLT DRP / Speak To My
The Soft Walls / Every Target Can Afford To Wait
Projector / Go Ahead
Guru / Don’t Talk
Murmur / Cradle
Demob Happy / Less is More
Cate Ferris / Gyroscope
My Life Story / Taking on the World
Winter Gardens / Coral Bells
Dog in the Snow / Dual Terror
El Train / Feels Like
Ida Vallens / Mt Whitney Hotel
La Lune / Holding Onto U
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds / Gallen Ship
Meemo Comma / Murmur

Honorable mentions also need to go to the Spotify conscientious objectors, Electric Soft Parade and Andres Y Xavi:

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.

The Physics House Band headline the main stage on Friday night (with the other headliners being Alpha Male Tea Party, TTNG and USA Nails over the other stages / nights) with more local representation from InTechnicolour, Wild Cat Strike, Gender Roles, Delta Sleep, Cousin Kula, CLT DRP, Frank & Beans, Drip Gloss, Inwards, LibraLibra, Sit Down and Yumi & The Weather.

To get you warmed up for the festival Small Pond have shared a sampler with all the bands playing (see the bottom of the post, as well as a live video of Skin Remover by CLT DRP filmed at their studios:

Fans of The Physics House Band are hopefully already all over the band’s record store day release this weekend of a coloured vinyl edition of their album Mercury Fountain with additional bonus tracks.
