Moulettes – Constellations

Moulettes constellations

Somehow, we haven’t made a proper post about the brand new Moulettes album yet. Sure, we went along to the launch gig and took loads of photos, and we posted the video and remix of Lady Vengeance a couple of weeks ago, but not a proper post, telling you what a great record the album is and imploring you to part with some of your hard earned cash in buying it.

Word from the Moulettes camp is that the best place to buy Constellations from is propermusic.com – If the band hits the top 40 in it’s first week (which it might just, with your help) then it gets into the shops, and it has a much much better chance of doing well in the longer term.

And if you’d like to buy the album from a bricks and mortar shop, and get to see the band play live too, you should head over to Union Music Store in Lewes on Saturday at 1pm, where they’ll be playing a short set and signing copies.

Gallery – Moulettes at the Haunt

On Thursday night, Moulettes played at the Haunt to promote their upcoming album Constellations. Moulettes are one of Brighton’s hardest working bands, who seem to be constantly on tour. It’s been over a year since they played in Brighton (and around eighteen months since we last caught them), and you could tell that they relished playing a hometown gig – as well as the opportunity to sleep in their own beds after play a gig! The line up has changed a little since we last saw them, and on top of the original core of members they were also joined by Eliza Jaye on guitar, vocals and violin, Emma Gattrill on harp and saxaphone, Faye Houston from The Resonators on backing vocals on one track and Kate Young on violin, who also played a support set of her own. The album features a whole host of other local musicians and midway through the gig Hannah praised the local music scene for all it’s talent. Constellations is out on June 2nd on Navigator Records. You can listen to the title track below and you can pre-order it here. Click on the images below to view them large.

New Music – Fujiya & Miyagi, Moulettes, New Union, A Lily, Black Rooster, Black Shag, The Hundredth Anniversary, Catherine Ireton

It feels like weeks since we put up a new music blog post, possibly because it has been weeks, but also because we’ve got so many things to share this time around.

First up is another new track from the upcoming Fujiya & Miyagi album Artificial Sweeteners. Album opener Flaws confirms the more electronic direction of the band that we heard on Tetrahydrofolic Acid, and is available as an early download if you pre-order the album on iTunes.

Moulettes gave us the first listen of the title track of their new album this week. Constellations is out on 2nd June on Navigator records, but I reckon that you’ll be able to plenty of tracks from the new record when the band play at The Haunt on 24th April.

We already posted up the audio for the new New Union single Now, but the video went live last week, so here it is again. We were at the Now launch gig at Bermuda Traingle on Friday night and will be posting up our pics soon.

Every monday for a month, A Lily are uploading a free cover version to bandcamp which together will make up an EP called Augury. The first of these is a cover of Julia Holter’s Goddess Eyes. Keep an eye on A Lily’s facebook page for news of the next upload.

Black Rooster Black Shag‘s Run Baby Run was one of our favourite tracks of last year, so our ears pricked up when they told us they had a new track coming out. Borderline is taken from the band’s upcoming album As Far As My Lead Will Take Me.

The Hundredth Anniversary have shared a track from their upcoming release. A Daze is the second track from the Wreckers EP, which is being released on Odd Box records on 17th March.

 

Catherine Ireton has released an EP which takes in two of her Treasure Tracks songs (which she performed in intimate venues around Brighton in 2012) as well as a track with Belle & Sebastian offshoot God Help The Girl and two tracks with other bands she’s played with over the years. The EP is entitled Pieces of Me and can be bought from iTunes and Amazon.
