Quite late in the week, here’s this week’s new music post, featuring the return of Cate Ferris with the first single from next year’s album and a whole host of other tracks out this week: Continue reading
Another week, another new music roundup. We’re starting off this week with news of the new EP from Momotaro, who have been fairly quiet for the last few years. The new EP is called Places and is out on 5th May, and the first track from it that they’ve shared is the lovely Gone Days.
We have two new albums to write about this week – The first is from Broker, whose album Quixota came out on October 22nd on Smalltown America records, although we received the first mail about the record back in August. Sorry guys. Since then the band have been on tour around Europe, but you haven’t missed the local launch yet – The album launch is happening this Saturday at the Prince Albert.
Next other is the new long player from Luo, who also got in touch with us far too long ago. Again, apologies. Their new release is called Sleep Spindles, and is out on local label Small Pond. There’s no big local launch for the record, but Luo are supporting Three Trapped Tigers on Sunday at Patterns, with the equally brilliant Physics House Band also on the bill.
Here’s our first update in a little while. The usual excuses don’t apply – we were on holiday instead. Whatever the excuse though there’s still over a week’s worth of new music to catch up on.
Our first track is a new free download from Alex Banks. It’s called All Over and it features fellow Brightonians Alphabets Heaven. Here’s the video for it, you can download the track via Alex’s website.
Another week, another new music roundup. Ten tunes for you this week, two of which have been posted before, but are worthy of another mention, but we’ll tell you about them when we get to them.
Our first track is by The Go! Team, whose new album The Scene Between comes out at the end of the month. If you pre-orer the album you’ll get instant downloads of What D’You Say, which you can hear below, Blowtorch, which we featured last month, and the album’s title track.
Glass City Vice‘s new single Landslide comes out next Monday. If we’d have been a bit more on the ball on following up from the mail we had from their people we’d have been able to tell you about their gig supporting Dry The River at the Concorde on tuesday night, but at least we weren’t so slack that we missed telling you about their headline gig at The Hope & Ruin on 15th April.
Black Honey have put up new track Madonna which is coming out on a double A side single on 6th April. It’ll be backed with another new track Spinning Wheel and will be released on Duly Noted Records.
Black Fields new single Monster came out last friday. It’s currently available to download for free on their bandcamp page.
David Bennett sent us the video for his new track Atoms the other day, which shows David playing all of the instruments, as he does on the track itself.
Mustang Japan is taken from High Tyde‘s upcoming Fuzz EP, out next Monday. The band are off on tour later this month, starting off with a couple of dates at the Haunt where they’re support Peace at their sold out nights.
Luo and Monoman are a couple of Brighton artists who have tracks featured on a new compilation put out by Brighton label SmallPrint. We’ve featured one of Luo’s tracks here (they have two tracks on the compilation) but you can download Eidolon and the rest of the album for free via the SmallPrint facebook page.
Mount Bank‘s Island Life EP is also out next Monday. We posted up Everything Is Glass from it a few weeks back, and here’s another track – Summer Camp (Anenon Remix). You can pre-order the EP on iTunes here.
Finally the two tracks that we’ve featured before – We first wrote about Glow by IYES back in November last year, when it was scheduled for a released in December. Things got pushed back, but it’s finally out now. You can watch the video below or buy the track on iTunes here.
Last, and by no means least since it headed up February Top Ten, is the video for Demob Happy‘s Young & Numb. When we posted the track last month only the audio stream was available, but since there’s now video too it’s worth re-sharing.
Drill Festival is this weekend. There’s a fantastic line up featuring LOADS of Brighton bands from big names like The Wedding Present, Blood Red Shoes and British Sea Power alongside upcoming bands like Speak Galactic, Dog in the Snow and Luo. You can read the whole line up on Drill’s Facebook page, but rest assured you won’t be disappointed.
Things have been a bit quiet from Les Enfants Terribles since their regular venue The Blind Tiger closed down earlier this year. They’re back next wednesday with out of towners The Away Days heading the bill, supported by locals and Morning Smoke.
Last, but by no means least is the Bleeding Hearts Christmas party. The Bleeding Hearts Club went into hibernation after their Christmas party two years ago to focus on putting out records (by the likes of Crayola Lectern and Cuz as well as upcoming releases from Clowwns and Seadog), but they’re back for a one off event at the Rialto Theatre on Dyke Road next Monday. Expect some great festive music from some of the old familiar faces. You should also be able to pick up a copy the Random Acts of Vinyl Christmas 10″ mentioned in our last blog post too.
Here’s this week’s dose of new music, starting off with a couple of releases which are out today.
Great Pagans new album Cupid In Error is released on Anti Ghost Moon Ray today. You can hear the whole lot over on their soundcloud, but as a taster, here’s album opener December:
Eva Bowan‘s new EP is also out today. The EP is entitled Hyperspectacle EP and it’s been released on KLDSCP records. Here’s lead track Lacerta XI.
On a vaguely KLDSCP related theme, here’s 316 by Mount Bank, a new electronic project featuring Physics House Band’s Sam Organ as one of their number, and Luo (some of who’s previous releases came out on KLDSCP) with Parallelogram.
Dog in the Snow‘s new single Africa came out earlier this month, and the band have just put the b-side up on Soundcloud. We reckon Concrete Walls is just as good as it’s flip, but we’ll let you judge for yourself:
Feel It is the new track from High Tyde. You can catch the band supporting Little Comets at The Concorde 2 on 31st October.
Finally we have another remix of Play by Fickle Friends, following on from last week’s remix by Foreign Skin. Brazil’s Cesare injects the track with a bit of South American sunshine and turns it into a summery house tune:
Here’s out latest round up of Brighton’s new music, with tracks from Fear of Men, The New Union, Luo, Bentcousin, and A Lily.
The New Union‘s new single Now came out last week, and now you can download a free remix by Oxford’s Pixel Fix, where they’ve swapped the jangling guitars are swapped chilled beats:
Luo released a new three track EP today. Lapis Lazuli is a return to Luo’s earlier electronica style, but he promises that he hasn’t turned his back on prog:
BentCousin have got a new track up on Souncloud. Everything is apparently about stalking, not that you’d guess from the melodica and soulful backing:
Since our last new music roundup A Lily have posted up the last two cover versions which go to make up their Augury EP. You can download Cold Blooded Old Times (originally a Smog track), and The Hollows (a Why? cover) from their bandcamp page:
Last year, The Physics House Band put out their six track debut release Horizons / Rapture. Today a remixed version of the mini album was put out on the bands own Kaleidescope records as a free download on Bandcamp. Remixes come from the likes of some of Brighton’s best electronica talent including iTal Tek, AK/DK and Luo as well as Blood and Biscuits labelmates Teej, Three Trapped Tigers.
In a bit of our change to our weekly gig round up, which used to just focus on what was going to be happening at the weekend, from 2014 we’ll be looking at what’s going on for the whole week. We always played a little bit fast and loose with the concept of weekend, always starting on Thursdays (and even Wednesdays on some occasions), but inevitably there would be the odd gig that would slip through the net.
As it happens, our first post in the new format is starting with a recommendation for thursday night – Luo, Kudu Blue and Fools Empire at playing at the Green Door Store in a fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support. Four pound on the door goes to the charity.
Meanwhile, over at the Hope, Demob Happy headline a not-so-late-night Late Night Lingerie, with a couple of French bands also on the bill.
On Friday Night, Late Night Lingerie regulars Spit Shake Sisters are playing a free gig at the Blind Tiger, with Broadbay in support.Meanwhile, over at Hotel Pelirocco Japanese Sweets headline Synthesize Me. While the name Japanese Sweets may not be familiar, you’ll have probably read one of our many posts about Speak Galactic, which is one of Owen Thomas’ other projects.
At Sticky Mike’s, their regular Brighton Rock nights are back, with Dizzy Tales, The Evil Son, Saint Elmo and Mude this week.
Our last pick of the week is Almighty Planets who are hosting monthly nights at the Blind Tiger. Amongst the supports are Brighton’s Normanton Street.
