New Brighton Music

Welcome to our first new music post of 2020. We’re on catchup somewhat, having not made any new music posts in December or so far in January, so we hope you’re sitting comfortably. We’re kicking off with two albums, the first from some Brighton legends who’ve kept us waiting for six and a half since their last record, and the other from the ambient solo project of one of our city’s most prolific drummers:

Electric Soft Parade / Stages

Muddy Suzuki / Endleofta

Beat Hotel / Bury It Deep

Guru / Don’t Talk
Alex Banks / Falling Down
Klae / Take it Back
Thrillhouse / One of These Days
Liemba / Ever Evolving
BUNKR / Solitary Drift (from The Initiation Well Remixed album)
Ornament / Ghost of What We Knew
Fukushima Dolphin / The Furry Side (from The Furry Side EP)
La Lune / Holding onto U
Speedboat / For Jean
Thyla / December
Ross Patience / Dark Days (from Dark Days EP)
Hannah Renton / Skyline
Leroy Horns / A Simple Joy
Good Guy Clarence / Pure Ego Death (from Split Habit EP)
El Train / Out of My Head

It’s Christmas Eve Eve, and we’ve left it a bit late to come up with our end of the year round up. Without much further ado, here it is – We say it every year, but this isn’t an ordered list, because you just can’t compare a band who’ve been releasing records for over twenty years with another who’ve just put out their first release. So hopefully there’s something in here for everyone, whether you’ve been listening to Nick Cave since he played with The Birthday Party, or you discovered CLT DRP at a sweaty night at the Green Door Store:

Nancy / Clic Clac
Fujiya & Miyagi / Gammon
Penelope Isles / Gnarbone
BUNKR / For The Birds
Laundromat / Humans
HANYA / Dream Wife
Blood Red Shoes / Howl
Orchards / Young
Barnacles / Manatee
CLT DRP / Speak To My
The Soft Walls / Every Target Can Afford To Wait
Projector / Go Ahead
Guru / Don’t Talk
Murmur / Cradle
Demob Happy / Less is More
Cate Ferris / Gyroscope
My Life Story / Taking on the World
Winter Gardens / Coral Bells
Dog in the Snow / Dual Terror
El Train / Feels Like
Ida Vallens / Mt Whitney Hotel
La Lune / Holding Onto U
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds / Gallen Ship
Meemo Comma / Murmur

Honorable mentions also need to go to the Spotify conscientious objectors, Electric Soft Parade and Andres Y Xavi:

Brighton Rocks #21 : Guru

Untitled (8)ees.jpg

What’s the best thing about Brighton?
Simon: Most definitely the people here, it’s hard to find another place where you instantly feel so comfortable and vibe off other people. The sea is alright as well.
Ferg: I like how small it is too. Some people don’t like that but it’s nice being able to walk from one end to the other in half an hour. I don’t like public transport Continue reading

Welcome to what’s probably our last New Music post of the year. We’re going to go into hibernation mode soon, with maybe just a post with some of our favourite tracks, and then we’ll be back in the new year, bright eyed and bushy tailed. But for now, it’s business as usual:

Artist: Blood Red Shoes
Track Name: Howl
Taken From: Get Tragic album
Release Date: Howl out now, Get Tragic out 25th January

It’s been a few weeks since out last post for which we can only apologise – we had a holiday, then jet lag, and only now we’re back on the blogging wagon. In that time both The Magic Gang and Fickle Friends have released their albums, and it seems to have been one of the busiest periods for other bands to share new music. We’d have no hope of catching up if we wrote up our new music post the way we normally do, with us much info as we have and details of any upcoming gigs, so for this post we’re going to keep things brief – just names of bands and tracks – and hopefully by next week we can get back to normal.

The Magic Gang – Take Care
