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
