June Gig Preview

It’s almost June, which means that we’re almost due for our regular monthly gig preview, back to a standard one after our amended format for May when focussed on the Great Escape.

New Brighton Music

I nearly put off making a new music post earlier this week – I only had a couple of things to write about and I thought I’d carry them over to next week. but then I double checked what I had to post about and suddenly there was more than enough. So let’s get on with it…

Artist: Demob Happy
Track Name: Less Is More
Taken From: Less Is More
Release Date: 1st February 2019
Next Gig: 2nd March at the Concorde, supported by Sick Joy and Heirloom

Brighton Music Blog 2018 Highlights

I’m not a fan of end of year lists. There’s the forced ranking of things, introducing subjectivity and pitting people against each other. There’s the fact that you might not remember things from the start of the year as well as recent tracks, or that some songs sounded great in the sunshine but right now it’s cold, wet and miserable. So instead, here’s a few tracks from 2018 that are highlights for us. No particular order, no claims that one is better than another, just what we think are a bunch of great tunes. There’s a few maybe more obvious bands missing (naming no names) – it’s been a brilliant year for Brighton Music – but some of the bands you might be thinking of haven’t been in touch, or haven’t got back to us when we’ve been in touch. Given how successful they’ve been they obviously haven’t needed a blog like us, and it’s not like we’ve been short of great music to post this year. Anyway, we’ve tried to post bandcamp links where we can, so if you like what you can hear, you can click through and buy from the site where the biggest proportion of the price goes back to the artist: Continue reading
