New Brighton Music

It’s only been 10 days since our last New Music post, but somehow it feels like we’ve got a month’s worth of new music to share. Things are normally quiet in August, but the last couple of weeks have gone crazy. First up is the new single from Other States entitled Come Back To Me. Other States headline Brighton Electric on 19th September.

Dog in the Snow have just put out the second single from their upcoming album Consume Me. The single is called Child and was out last Friday. We’ve got a Brighton Rocks lined up with Helen coming up sometime soon, so watch this space.

Projector are releasing their new AA side single Love / Dreaming on cassette on 15th May with a launch party at the Green Door Store.

Resonators new single Right Time came out last Friday on Wah Wah 45s. Alongside the normal download options, there’s also a super-limited 7″ with the remixes, but hurry if you want one because there’s only five left on bandcamp at the time of writing:

The New Faith release their new single tomorrow. It’s called Fritter Away and is taken from their upcoming album Me On You, which is being launched at the Brightelm Centre on 13th October.

Battery Operated Orchestra are back with a new electro banger of a single, the title track from last year’s album Radiation. It’ll be available as a free download for a week from 12th September via the band’s website.

We missed the launch date (and launch gig) for Jenna Bennett Brighton themed single City By The Sea, although in our defence, we didn’t actually hear about it until after the event. You can watch the video here, and listen to the audio through the usual outlets:

We missed the launch of Luna Blue‘s Nightjar EP too, which was last Friday at the Hope & Ruin. Here’s the lead track from their EP which is out now:

Next we have the new one from Kev Minney, Like I Always. It’s taken from his upcoming album Stories of the Sky, which launches at Café Plenty on 9th September.

Finally, here’s Haze by Grapefruit Moon. Their debut album is due for release in November but you can catch them live before that on 5th September at The Joker.

Back to a normal sized New Music post this week, which doesn’t take me several evenings to write up. We’ve got plans for a new album roundup later this week too, so watch this space.

Our first track this week is Impossible Objects of Desire by Fujiya & Miyagi, taken from their self titled album, or EP3, depending on how much you like vinyl. Listening to the lyrical content of the track, I’d say that they’d probably describe it as being from EP3:

I had a thought this week that I should make all my new music posts on the same day of the week, and then they’d be New Music Mondays or something like that, but then I realised I could never be so organised as to organise my week like that, so we’re stuck with New Brighton Music as the post name, and they’ll come out as I manage to get the time in front of my computer. Anyway, our first track this week is from Dog in the Snow, a song called Magic taken from their upcoming album Consume Me due later this year:

Brighton Music Blog Great Escape / Alt Escape 2017 preview

TGE17
It’s almost that time again – the highlight in the Brighton musical calendar, when anywhere you can fit in a PA becomes venue for a few days. Yes, this coming weekend is The Great Escape Festival. We haven’t finalised our plans, but we’re probably going to end up seeing more Alt Escape stuff than proper Great Escape stuff, because that’s where the bulk of the local bands are playing. If you haven’t got yourself a ticket yet then you can get into all the Alt Escape stuff without one anyway.

January was a fairly quiet month for new music, so our second post of the year has taken until February. We’re going to start large, with one of the biggest bands from round these parts. Orbital are back with a track called Kinetic 2017, which is a remix of an Orbital side project release from 1992:

Gig preview : Triptych

untitled-1Happy New Year! Our first post of 2017 isn’t a new music post – nobody has sent us anything yet this year (although we have got a couple of things we missed last year that we need to catch up with). Instead we’ve got a preview of some gigs which caught our eye (a phrase specifically chosen to draw your attention to the beautiful flyers above). The last full week in January is Independent Venue Week and as part of that Love Thy Neighbour are putting on a trio of gigs that they’re calling Triptych. These aren’t just any gigs though – each night features three Brighton bands and is accompanied by it’s own super limited edition lathe cut vinyl release of the acts performing. Continue reading

Here’s this week’s new music round up. We’re kicking things off with news of the second album from the brilliant Fiction Aisle who completely unexpectedly put out a new album last week. It’s called Fuschia Days, and is available as a download or on very limited cd. There’s only two cds left – that’s how limited it is. Where The Fiction Aisle’s first album was a huge orchestral widescreen affair, the new album feels more sparse, but no less lacking in vision. A fantastic progression. Continue reading
