So, it turns out that even if I have the desire to keep the blog update, the combination of lockdown, a job and childcare mean that there aren’t enough hours in the day, which is why it’s been over a month since our last post. Here’s an attempt to catch up, with no promises about when I’ll get to make my next post! In no particular order, here’s more than twenty tracks that have come out from local acts since we last wrote:
Ellis D / Puppeteering Jetstream Pony / It’s Fine Fragile Creatures / Parallel Lines Dan Sumner / Electric Light Lucy Feliz / Magic Hour Will and the People / Head in the Sand Psychic Shakes / Wage Slave Nancy / Call Me On Your Telephone Billy Carr / Swinging Jon Mcleod / The Cavalry Comes Libra Libra / Juicy Lucy Maurice Business / Inside (from Songs for the Office EP) Mrisi / West Baby Thrillhouse / : Ready When You Are Sit Down / Told U So (from Nice One EP) The Daylight / Ghosts (Clementine remix) Politeburo / Middlechild Dom Champ / Slow Candid / Oz Fruity Water / Telephone Song Thudd / What Once Was Joe Peter / Self Adhesive Maida Vorn / Manic in Me
October already. How time flies. We’re not quite as prompt as we would have liked with this month’s gig previews post – if we were we might have tipped the Platform B FM licence launch at the Green Door Store last night. Instead though we’ll kick off with a gig that’s been mentioned before tomorrow night.
Matters by Fröst came out last Friday and was named Resident’s album of the day . They’ve also made the launch gig their gig of the week too, so you don’t have to just take our word for it. It takes place at the Prince Albert, with support from Spill Gold.
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.
