Another week chock full of new Brighton music for you all. First band this week is Black Biro who have just put up their new track The Organist of Agony. Black Biro play the Prince Albert this Saturday, picking up a headline slot on only their second gig:
Our favourite band this year is one that haven’t released a whole album, but have put out two thirds of one. Fujiya and Miyagi have however put out EP1 and EP2, with a promise of EP3 in the new year, with the tracks from the three releases coming out on a self titled album. When we interviewed David Best earlier this year, he spoke about Feeling really good about the band, and listening to the EPs it’s easy to hear why – from the funky Seratonin Rushes through to the arpeggiated electro of Extended Dance Mix, the band have never sounded better. But it’s not just musically that they’re on top form. The lyrics of Extended Dance Mix are as self deprecating and witty as anything they’ve put out, and To The Last Beat of My Heart rhymed Jupiter with Stupider which is surely equal to Hal David rhyming “pneumonia” with “phone yer”. We can’t wait to hear EP3.
It’s actually been a few weeks since we’ve done a new music roundup, with a bit of variety getting back into the things we’re posting. Continuing in that vein, with any luck we’ll have an interview coming soon with our first artist this week Fujiya & Miyagi. Their new release EP2 comes out this Friday, and they’ve just shared another track from it. This is the self referential Extended Dance Mix:
Without any warning (to us at least) Sea Bed put out a new EP last Friday. The EP is entitled The Art of Living, and it includes recent single Geneva which we featured in a new music roundup a few weeks ago. Here’s the title track:
We also included Hello Today by Black Honey in one of our recent roundups, but that was before they shared the brilliant video for the track:
Jacko Hooper‘s After The Storm EP came out at the end of September. Here’s the video for the lead track from the release Time Will Tell Us Enough
We don’t know a great deal about Preston Parris who sent us over his EP under the name Preston Outatime, but we do know that we quite like his Enceladus EP of instrumental hip hop:
Gang put out a double A side single out on November 25th. Dead (featured here) will be backed with another new track Enough Nothing. You can catch Gang live at the Hope & Ruin on November 4th.
Last Friday Kanzi put out their new EP “Sketches, Early Summer“. The lead track is called March and is backed with another three tracks of lush electronica:
Last but by no means least is Who You Are by Tim Woodbridge which came out last week, which reminded us a bit of the last C Duncan album, which is no bad thing at all:
