Here’s this week’s dose of new music. First up is Heaven by Martha Gunn, who I assume isn’t made up of bar staff from the pub on Lewes Road (although they may well be), but are also named after the Prince Regent’s best known dipper. Continue reading
Happy Easter! Can you still say Happy Easter a few days after Easter? Who knows. I’m saying it regardless. Anyway, here’s this week’s new music roundup, kicking off with the brand new track from Black Honey. This is called All My Pride and is taken from their forthcoming Headspin EP:
Here’s what’s likely to be our last new music post of October, with half a dozen brand new tunes for you to feast your ears on.
First up is the subtly renamed Clowwns (formerly with just the one w), with a video for their upcoming single Shame on You. They’ve been one of the city’s best live bands for a while, so it’s great to hear the music getting out there.
Spirit Hips is the new single from Eagles for Hands. The track is less housey than the other singles that he’s put out this year, but still packs a massive dancefloor punch. It comes out on 17th November, and is followed the following Monday (24th) with a gig at Sticky Mike’s.
Who U Are is the third and final track from J Tropic‘s Love Up EP, which comes out today on Duly Noted. We’ve featured the other tracks – Love Up and Solid Gold, and the third track doesn’t disappoint.
Sticking with Duly Noted records, we’ve got a new track from Black Honey, which is going to feature on their debut EP Sleep Forever. Bloodlust is the fourth track on the EP which is going to be onsale at upcoming gigs:
Next up we’ve got a track from a brand new Brighton band called Nightkites. Drones is the lead track from an EP of the same name which is available to download now from Soundcloud. If you were a fan of Burial, this should be right up your street.
Finally, we have the a new track from Mount Bank, foxing our attempts to write about it giving it a title of the symbol of a crescent. The track is some lovely ambient electronica, unassumingly aimless for the first minute before a repeated piano motif brings everything together:
It’s ten days since our last new music post, and the music has been flooding in.
First up is the new single from Fickle Friends. For You is currently Hype Machine’s most blogged about track, so we’re a few days behind the curve with this one. That’s what happens if you take ten days between new music posts I guess. For You is another fantastic 80s influenced pop tune, following on from their previous singles Swim and Play.
J Tropic are Fickle Friends’ labelmates but Love Up is more r’n’b than pop. J Tropic’s three track debut EP is out on Duly Noted records on 27th October.
Human Touch by Gazelle Twin got a premier on The Line of Best Fit last week, and is taken from her upcoming album Unflesh, out next Monday. Gazelle Twin headline the next Spectrum Music Night at the Dome Studio Theatre next Friday night. The whole evening is a showcase for Gazelle Twin’s label Anti Ghost Moon Ray, and also has Benholz and Great Pagans on the bill.
We haven’t been slow off the mark with all of the tracks we’re posting – Champion Fever‘s latest offering is hot off the fresh, only appearing online this afternoon – VolcaNO is four minutes of uplifting electronica
Next week, Cate Ferris launches her new EP. Disappear is already available for people who supported her pledge campaign, but is getting a full launch at Latest Music Bar on Tuesday. Here’s the title track:
We posted about the upcoming Levellers album a few weeks back and shared the collaboration they had made with Billy Bragg. They’ve now shared another of the new collaborations of their old tracks which feature on their new best of, this time working with Imelda May on a new version of Beautiful Day:
Dark Train are a new Brighton duo who make dark brooding synth pop. Here’s their latest track Sing To You. If you like what you hear, Dark Train are supporting Return To The Sun at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar next thursday:
Transformer have a new three track EP out entitled Feel The Beast. XLR8R offered a free download of the track Deepak from the EP, but here’s the title track:
We hadn’t rushed to write anything about the new Salt Ashes single If You Let Me Go because the PR email we got told us that it wasn’t out until October. However, a few clicks around the internet has told us that the single is actually out already on iTunes, and has been for a couple of weeks. Oops:
The last track we’re featuring today is something guitar based, from the debut EP Empiricism from Brighton based alternative rock band Rory Indiana. The EP comes out on September 26th. So far the only track out there from the EP is Sanctuary, which you can hear below:
