New Brighton Music

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.

March Gig Previews

The beast from the east might be making it feel like deepest midwinter, but it’s actually the first day of March, so it’s time for some more another gig preview post. First up, this weekend AK/DK play their first Brighton gig since their album launch at the end of last year. It’s at Patterns on Saturday night, and support comes from Fruity Water.

Guru Hake

Then on Tuesday 6th March Guru and Hake launch their new release at the Green Door Store. The split 10″ contains Medicine Man by Guru and After Space Legacy by Hake and can be bought at the show.

On Friday 9th March, Anushka play Patterns – their first Brighton gig in almost two years, and their first local headline gig in over three years. On the same night Warsaw Radio launch their album Midnight Broadcast at the Green Door Store. The album’s out later this month preceded by a single called Ms Monroe which we’ll be posting up in a New Music post soon.

Our last gig to mention is Wax Machine‘s EP launch at the Hope & Ruin on 31st March. Support comes from Jungfrau, Rokurokubi and Puppet Alan Watts. The four track The This officially comes out the following day but can be bought on the night (or you could pre-order it through the band’s bandcamp page).

So, welcome to probably our last new music post of the year. As December hits we’ll be doing our end of year round ups, but it’s rare that anything gets put out in the run up to Christmas anyway. Continue reading
