So, it turns out that even if I have the desire to keep the blog update, the combination of lockdown, a job and childcare mean that there aren’t enough hours in the day, which is why it’s been over a month since our last post. Here’s an attempt to catch up, with no promises about when I’ll get to make my next post! In no particular order, here’s more than twenty tracks that have come out from local acts since we last wrote:
Ellis D / Puppeteering Jetstream Pony / It’s Fine Fragile Creatures / Parallel Lines Dan Sumner / Electric Light Lucy Feliz / Magic Hour Will and the People / Head in the Sand Psychic Shakes / Wage Slave Nancy / Call Me On Your Telephone Billy Carr / Swinging Jon Mcleod / The Cavalry Comes Libra Libra / Juicy Lucy Maurice Business / Inside (from Songs for the Office EP) Mrisi / West Baby Thrillhouse / : Ready When You Are Sit Down / Told U So (from Nice One EP) The Daylight / Ghosts (Clementine remix) Politeburo / Middlechild Dom Champ / Slow Candid / Oz Fruity Water / Telephone Song Thudd / What Once Was Joe Peter / Self Adhesive Maida Vorn / Manic in Me
Time for another new music post. This time around we’ve got new ones from Orchards (who also announced details of their new album this week, which you can pre-order from their website), and Wax Machine (which can be pre-ordered through their bandcamp page amongst other places) who also appear on the new Hill album which is included too. Oh, and for Penelope Isles fans we’ve also got the new Ciel track, produced by Jack Wolter. Continue reading →
Quite late in the week, here’s this week’s new music post, featuring the return of Cate Ferris with the first single from next year’s album and a whole host of other tracks out this week: Continue reading →
What with planning for the Great Escape we’ve got a bit behind with our new music posts, so there’s a LOT to get through this week. Hopefully we’re back up to date after this, but if you’ve heard of something local that we haven’t, let us know!
On the weekend of the release of their new EP, we caught up with Adam Kidd from Fragile Creatures to take some photos and ask our set of ten questions:
What’s the best thing about Brighton?

No attempted April fools from us. We’ve never tried, mainly because if we did, they’d probably be a bit crap. There is an April gig preview post on the way though, so look out for that. In the meantime, here’s this week’s new music:
Here we are with our first New Music post of 2016. A fair few of the tracks actually came out last year, but we were a bit distracted in December with our Top ten posts. Talking of our Top ten, you might ask why we’re featuring our number one Fujiya & Miyagi again. Well, EP2 is about to get a US release, and the band put out a video for Extended Dance Mix directed by Bob Brown from Shrag:
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.
