New Brighton Music

Here’s a blog post I started writing back in SEPTEMBER. I’ve been terrible about writing blog posts, but at least the excuse of a five month old baby is a pretty good one. Normally I’d write a paragraph to go with each track, letting you know about release dates and launch parties, but in the interests of actually getting this posted, here without any introduction is some of the (now not so) new music that we heard around six weeks ago. To everyone who’s sent us tracks since, watch this space. Hopefully the next update won’t take as long!

New Brighton Music

A relatively quiet week for new music this week, but here’s what we’ve got to share. First up is the new GAPS All Me, All You remix EP, which the first music we’ve embedded from Spotify, so hopefully this will work. There’s remixes from Maya Jane Coles and Alex Arnout of two tracks from their album In, Around The Moments, as well as the original versions, and you can also buy the EP on iTunes here.

Black Honey‘s new single is called Corrine. It’s getting a physical release in a month’s time on 23rd October on Foxfive records, and the band are heading out on tour for most of October, finishing things up with a hometown gig at the Hope & Ruin on 5th November. Continue reading

Another week, another nine new tracks for you to hear, so there should be something for everyone. The first two tracks came out especially for Record Store Day. If you’re lucky you might still be able to pick them up on down at Resident.

The Go! Team‘s RSD release was a new 7″ called Ye Ye Yamaha, which came out on yellow translucent vinyl. Both sides of the record were brand new tracks which weren’t included on their new album The Scene Between.

We posted the lead track from Demob Happy‘s Young & Numb EP back in February. Last saturday they got truly into the spirit of Record Store Day, playing an impromptu set outside Resident and then playing an afternoon set at the Spectrum gig at the Dome. They also put up another track from the 10″ they put out for the event, and you can listen to Fizz below:

We were very please to read about the return of Momotaro. They have a new EP called Highest out on 2nd May, and the first track online from it is the housey Roots:

Rooster Cole released his debut EP last week. The More Than You EP is available to download via Bandcamp and iTunes and opens up with Up To The Teeth:

Fickle Friends have been teasing about some news to be announced on Radio One later this evening over on their facebook page. It’s exciting times over at Fickle Friends HQ because yesterday they also shared a video for their new track Could Be Wrong:

Last week Astrid’s Tea Party shared the audio of their upcoming single Black Swan. The dramatic electro pop single comes out on May 18th:

Red Deer People have just released a couple of new tracks on Bandcamp (with a physical cd release to follow).  Fire Fire Blister Blister is backed with another track called Pull Out Your Dagger Pull Out Your Gun.

Eighties Matchbox B-Line distaster offshoot Krak Krak release the follow up to their debut single on 18th May. Grave Dohl will be coming out as a digital download on Sonic Anhedonic Recording Company and will be playing a couple of shows at the Great Escape a few days before to celebrate:

Finishing up with something a bit quieter than the Krak Krak track is Jack Watts, whose new EP Red Shortbread comes out on 17th May. Here’s EP opener with Push Blue:

New Music

When I sat down last night to put together this week’s new music post I didn’t think it would be quite as big as it has turned out, which is why it’s taken me an extra day to post it up. In the last eight days we’ve heard about a dozen new tunes that we need to share. Good work Brighton musicians!

First up is the new tune from The Fiction Aisle. Their first proper single will be with us at some point, but in the meantime the band have put up the mournful Soon Enough The Morning Comes:

We’ve written about a few of Salt Ashes previous singles, but none have sounded as dancefloor friendly or well produced as Raided:

Silence Myself is a marked change for Fable, whose previous releases have been much noisier and intimidating, where her latest offering is beatless with just a soft synth backing. You can catch Fable playing live at the Prince Albert on 18th March. supported by Fragile Creatures.

Monoman‘s beats have been augmented with the vocal talents of Molly Burbridge on his latest track Untouchable. Head over to Monoman’s Soundcloud page to hear another track they’ve recorded together called Orion.

Krak Krak, featuring ex Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster‘s drummer Rob Ling released their debut EP Burnt At The Stake yesterday on Sonic Anhedonic records. Here’s EP opener War on Us:

Bones is the new single from Object Object. In the band’s bio, they claim to be influenced by 80s New Wave and Fleetwood Mac, which you can hear coming through on the track:

Lion Bark are giving away their new track Amongst The Many as a free download over on their bandcamp page. If you’re a fan of guitar pop, then this is for you. Lion Bark headline the newly refurbished Hope & Ruin (formerly just The Hope) on 21st March.

Last friday Record / Start put out their debut single on Post/Pop records. Rock from Afar (featured here) is backed with Followay, and is available over on the Post/pop bandcamp page. Hopefully that’s just a typo on the price of the digital download though!

IYES cover of Beyonce’s Crazy in Love first appeared in December 2013, but it’s been given a new lease of life with a remix by Ben Pearce which turned up online last week:

Talking of remixes, earlier this year Moulettes put out their single Glorious Year. Champion Fever‘s remix wasn’t put out with the single, but he has shared it with us as a free download on bandcamp:

One more remix? How about Ambassadeurs reworking of Marvin Gaye‘s classic Let’s Get It On. Ambassadeurs is playing live this saturday at the Green Door Store, supported by Foreign Skin.

Rory Indiana‘s Empiricism EP came out last September but was promoted with other tracks at the time. This week the band, who are already in the studio hard at work on their next release, put up a video to the EP’s title track:

 

New Music

Here’s our first new music post of 2015. We’ve kept receiving music over the Christmas break, including an incredible five emails from one band about a track we’d already featured in a new music post. Odd.

First up is the new single from Moulettes, the aptly titled Glorious Year, out today via the usual digital distribution channels, which comes with remixes from Jimthefingers (aka Moulettes bassist Jim Mortimore) and Modernaire – an old pseudonym of the band they used when they made dance music which has largely been inactive for the last five years:

Ambassadeurs new release came out last week. The Forever EP has been released on his own Lost Tribe label, and can listen to it below on Soundcloud:

Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster drummer Rob Ling has got a new project called Krak Krak, which he describes as like the White Stripes on crack. They have an upcoming EP coming out in February on Sonic Anhedonic in February, but as an introduction here’s a track called It Sleeps:

After we put Yumi & The Weather into our top twenty at the end of the year last year we were promised that there would be some new music soon, and today a new track called Be There appeared on Soundcloud. We don’t know much about the track, but we’ll keep you posted with any news:

Finally, from nowhere we have a mini album from Black Black Hills who we had thought were missing in action somewhere. The eponymous release collects together the bands several singles along side a few other unreleased tracks and is available on Bandcamp now:
