This week’s New Music post gives us here at Brighton Music Blog much happiness because this week we read about the return of The Go! Team. They’ve returned with a single called Semicircle Song, the first taste of an album of the same name. The single is out now, and the album follows in January, out on neon pink vinyl if you pick it up from Resident. There are also all sorts of bundles available from the Go! Team’s webstore too. Tickets are also onsale now for the launch gig which is at The Haunt on 11th February.
Next we have the video for Pioneer by Common Tongues, which is the lead single from their album Divisions which came out in the summer:
Our next track is by a brand new Brighton band called Something Leather . They only played their first gig in the last month, and we haven’t received any info about their first track Shotgun Persona other than the title:
Red Deer People put out their new single C’est Bon on 7″ at the beginning of November. There’s a launch gig for it which takes place on 10th November at the Hope & Ruin with Porridge Radio and Jungfrau supporting.
A couple of days ago we had an email with some news from Island Club. They’ve just put out a new track called Irresistible which you can hear below, and have announced a headline gig at the Green Door Store on 9th December, their first Brighton date since May. No word yet on the supports, but we’ll keep you updated if we have any news:
Finally, a track that slipped through the cracks last month. Teeth is the first release from a new band called Swoon, whose members include Adam Macauley, formerly of Curxes.
It’s been a fortnight since we made a new music post, and as usual when it’s been slightly longer, somehow there’s disproportionately more tunes to write about (and that’s not counting the ones we’re missing out because the Spotify / WordPress plugin isn’t working for us these days). So without further ado, our first track this week is another new track from the upcoming GAPS album. If We Remain is the latest track the band have shared from As It Is, which comes out on 22nd June (according to the iTunes preorder page)
Nipping in quickly before The Great Escape turns the city crazy, here’s another round of new music. A few of the bands we’re going to mention are playing at the Great Escape too, so we’ll give their sets a mention while we’re here. First up is a new video from The Fiction Aisle, whose debut album came out at the end of last year, and whose next album is already on the way. Here’s a track that isn’t from either though – Will I Get Where I’m Going Before I’m Ready? will apparently appear on the band’s third long player. Thomas White and his band play at Bar Rogue on Friday at 6pm as part of the Earworm Events / Northbrook College stage: Continue reading →
Now Europe’s most talked about showcase festival, is taking place in a matter of days in our fantastic city. The Great Escape Festival is seen as a ‘mecca for music lovers’. It’s baby sister the Alternative Great Escape will soon be eclipsing the main event.. with the 2016 lineup proving to be even stronger. One of the things I love about the alternative events, is not only are they in your standard live music venues, but you’ll also see them hosted in at your favourite bagel bar, vintage clothes shop or even courtyard. Here are my top 10 highlights for this year’s Alternative Escape: Continue reading →
OK, so we’ve got a LOT of catching up to do. Life’s throwing lots of distractions at me which means that blogging doesn’t get nearly as much time as it ever used to. I started writing this blog post over a week ago, so even once I post this I’m playing catch up. Let’s just plug ahead shall we?
First up is Bentcousin, who’ve collaborated with Alcatraz Electro on a New Order-esque track called Everybody Loves The Weekend. Ideal to kick off a Saturday post with.
As promised yesterday, this week’s new music comes in two doses, and here’s the second.
Today’s post starts with the flip side of the record that started yesterday’s post. Pogo by Octopuses is the double A side that accompanies the new track from Milk & Biscuits, out on 1st June on Lick Music:
