New Brighton Music

Nobody releases anything in December. Or so I thought. I figured that after putting up my end of year list I could come back in January to a relatively sleep start, but it seems that everybody else was thinking differently. So here’s what’s probably our biggest new music post ever, featuring some of Brighton’s heaviest hitters – Steve Mason has a new album has a new album out this week, and Blood Red Shoes’ new LP is due any week now

Artist: Steve Mason
Album Name: About The Light
Release Date: out now
Next Gig: 9th February at St Barts

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

Brighton Rocks #17 : LibraLibra

Untitled (6)es

What is the best thing about Brighton?
BETH: It’s a very open and accepting city, it’s a place where you come out of your shell and be your true self. I think what’s really telling of this is how the Brighton art/music scene is flourishing, there are some crazy talented bands / musicians / artists left right and centre. It’s an exciting place to be right now. Continue reading

June Gig Previews

We’re only a few days away from June, so it’s about time for another set of previews.

31870984_10155845867916622_8293160172981846016_oOur first tip is Crayola Lectern’s album launch at the Rosehill this Friday (1st June). Friday is also release day for Happy Endings, Crayola Lectern‘s second long player, and you can see the video for Rescue Mission in yesterday’s new music post.

Our next tip is another gig at the Rosehill, on Friday 8th June. Love Thy Neighbour and Immersion put on their fourth Nanocluster event, where Immersion and an invited guest play individual sets then join forces for the final section of the gig. Ulrich Schnauss joins them in June, following an incredible set from Laetita Sadier last month. Continue reading
