New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s dose of new music for you all, slightly bigger than normal because I didn’t get around to posting last week. Our first track is the new one from Sea Bed called Moving Ghosts, which gets a release on Four Thieves records on vinyl on 11th March (which you can pre-order here):

Miamigo have shared some more 80s-tastic synthpop. This is Pot Luck:

Thyla have followed up last year’s Us and Them with Car Crash, an ambitious, angular slice of guitar pop:

Great Pagans premiered their new single over on Steregum last week. The band are releasing  Call of the Wild on Anti-Ghost Moon Ray on 11th March.

Tuska are the third band we’re writing about who are releasing their new single on 11th March. Their new track is called We Could Be Alone, and is a must-listen for fans of Tame Impala. If you like what you hear you can catch the band at Sticky Mike’s on 4th March:

Landslide is the debut single from Loa Loa, a raucous three minute garage cacophony committed to tape at Brighton Electric

Changing tack completely, this is White Peaks, with their new dreamy electronic pop song Easy:

Nicolas and the Saints are releasing their album Years in the Making at the end of the month (or at the start of the month if you pledged to their indiegogo campaign). The album was literally years in the making, with recording taking place over seven years. Here’s the album’s penultimate track Been Hurt Before:

Warsaw Radio are returning to their Irish roots for the launch of their new single Down by the Sea. Their mini tour starts this time next week and takes in Dundalk, Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway:

 

 

 

Electric Greyhound make woozy electronica, and have just posted up their latest track Flounder:

Finishing up this post we have three videos – Just posted today was GAPS video for their track A World Away, from their album In Around The Moments:

Next we have the fuzzy shoegaze of Tuval‘s In My Head:

And finally we have a hip hop track sung in Albanian. This is Ledio, Te Lutem! by Via Tirana:

 

 

New Music

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve made a New Music post – not because there hasn’t been good new music coming out, but because life’s got in the way – so we’ve got some catching up to do.

First up is the first music put online from the White brothers new project The Fiction Aisle. They’ve played a couple of gigs at the Prince Albert (with the next in their residency being on 26th November) but Blue is the first most people would have heard of the new band. Where Electric Soft Parade were all about a guitar based sound, The Fiction Aisle present beautiful shimmering pop:

Next up is a new tune from Ambassadeurs written while on tour recently in the States. From You is four minutes of effortless electronica.

BentCousin post up far more tracks than we get a chance to but their latest effort, Hid, is rather lovely, a simple string backed song with Amelia taking on the bulk of vocal duties.

Great Pagans launched their album Cupid In Error at the Green Door Store on 6th November at and haven’t rested on their laurels since then, sharing a remix of So Pure by fellow Brighton act Acquaintance.

Fickle Friends have breathed some new life into some of their old singles in the past few weeks, with a few remixes popping up and now a Vevo featured video of For You:

Time for T launch their self titled EP next Monday (24th November). They’re holding a London launch on the day, but the Brighton party isn’t until 13th December. As a taster, they’ve shared EP track Long Day Home

Last but by no means least is New Year’s Prayer, the lead track from Night House‘s upcoming debut EP, which is also self titled:

 

October Top Ten

We probably posted more new music in October than we had in any month in the three years we’ve been writing (we turned three on Friday!). Here’s our top picks from what we’ve heard:

1. Fujiya & MiyagiDaggers (Stephen Morris remix)

When we’re not listening to bands from Brighton, there’s a good chance that New Order ends up on the stereo, so when we read last week that one of our favourite Brighton bands had been remixed by a member of New Order it was almost inevitable that we’d love it.

2. Native RosesShadows (Ambassadeurs remix)

More Ambassadeurs than Native Roses, this remix of lush textured electronica didn’t bear a great resemblance to the original, but it’s beauty won us over.

3. Great PagansTangled up in Chemistry

Great Pagans album Cupid in Error was one of the highlights of the month. We could have picked any of the tracks – it’s all good – be we chose Tangled Up in Chemistry

4. Normanton StreetThis Wolf

We gave Normanton Street’s Much Respect EP a post of it’s own a day before it’s release last week, and deservedly so. The track we’ve chosen for our top ten is the beautiful stripped down This Wolf.

5. HeliopauseCity of Glass

Heliopause have popped up quite frequently on the blog over the years, as folk, then nudging post rock, and most recently as more straightforward indie. It suits them.

6. The DuBarrysUndress Your Soul

The DuBarrys had a self titled EP out this month, and lead track Undress Your Soul is a beautiful folk-pop classic in the making.

7. Fire EyesHide Out

Random Acts of Vinyl’s latest 7″ release by Fire Eyes is a great track on it’s own, but it confirmed it’s place in our top ten with remixes by the Bad Seeds’ Barry Adamson and AK/DK.

8. Eva BowanLacerta XI

Eva Bowan’s latest EP Hyperspectacle has been released by local label KLDCP and is possibly her most accessible, most cohesive work yet. We loved EP opener Lacerta XI.

9. Dog in the SnowConcrete Wall

Technically, Concrete Wall came out last month, being released as the B-side to Dog in the Snow’s Africa single, but it only got posted up to Soundcloud this month, and it’s still getting a lot of plays around these parts.

10. NightkitesDrones

We got the heads up about Nightkites’ future garage from GAPS who posted up a link to the music on their facebook page. The EP is named after the paranoid yet slightly hopeful standout track Drones.

New Music

Here’s this week’s dose of new music, starting off with a couple of releases which are out today.

Great Pagans new album Cupid In Error is released on Anti Ghost Moon Ray today. You can hear the whole lot over on their soundcloud, but as a taster, here’s album opener December:

Eva Bowan‘s new EP is also out today. The EP is entitled Hyperspectacle EP and it’s been released on KLDSCP records. Here’s lead track Lacerta XI.

On a vaguely KLDSCP related theme, here’s 316 by Mount Bank, a new electronic project featuring Physics House Band’s Sam Organ as one of their number, and Luo (some of who’s previous releases came out on KLDSCP) with Parallelogram.

Dog in the Snow‘s new single Africa came out earlier this month, and the band have just put the b-side up on Soundcloud. We reckon Concrete Walls is just as good as it’s flip, but we’ll let you judge for yourself:

Feel It is the new track from High Tyde. You can catch the band supporting Little Comets at The Concorde 2 on 31st October.

Finally we have another remix of Play by Fickle Friends, following on from last week’s remix by Foreign Skin. Brazil’s Cesare injects the track with a bit of South American sunshine and turns it into a summery house tune:

New Music – GAPS, Great Pagans, She Crazy, Dark Train, The Dubarrys, Heliopause, Winston & Goldstein

Here’s our first New Music post for October, which is already shaping up to be another great month.

It only feels like the other week that we were sitting in the sun outside Small Batch interviewing GAPS about their new EP with Maya Jane Coles, but they’re not resting on their laurels and have announced details of another new single. She Bears a Flower will be released out on Sexbeat on 1st December:

Great Pagans have previewed Tangled Up in Poetry from their upcoming album Cupid in Error which gets released on Anti Ghost Moon Ray on 20th October. The launch party for the gig takes place at the Green Door Store on 6th November with support from Japanese Sweets and Soph Nathan.

As we head to the end of October, we’re hoping we see more videos like the new one from She Crazy. Made by Novi films, the promo for Zompocalypse Now is nothing short of brilliant (the song’s not bad either)

Carrying on with the vaguely horror theme, here’s Jekyll & Hyde, the new track from Dark Train:

A couple of weeks ago we posted up the video to Lilly by The DuBarrys, taken from their self titled EP. At the time we didn’t have too much info, but this week, as the band post up the rest of the EP to soundcloud, we thought we’d share another track from the record and also the iTunes preorder link.

Here’s some new music from Heliopause. City of Glass is possibly the furthest away from folk that the band have strayed to date:

Finally, a new download from Winston & Goldstein. If you’ve ever wondered what an ambient electronica response to female celebrity phone hacking might sound like, take a listen to Celebgate:

 

Gazelle Twin at Spectrum at the Dome Studio Theatre

Friday night was the latest Spectrum event held at the Dome Studio Theatre, organised in collaboration between the Dome and Resident records. This month’s even was an Anti Ghost Moon Ray showcase, headlined by the jaw dropping Gazelle Twin, in support of her new album Unflesh. Also on the bill here her label mates Great Pagans and Bernholz, whose album How Things Are Made is also out now.
