New Brighton Music

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.

Next up, another longtime favourite of Brighton’s electronic music work, Foreign Skin, has shared her remix of Luo‘s track Lucid Dream:

Yumi & The Weather have put up the B-side to their upcoming single Distant Days, a track called In The Night. The single is out on the 12th May, but there’s a launch party at the Hope & Ruin on Monday 8th.

The New Faith‘s first proper single comes out on 2nd June and is called To Sad To Be Young. The video features nudity, although it has been pixelated to get past YouTub’s restrictions. There’s a pre-release gig for the single this Saturday at the Prince Albert.

Black Biro are a new Brighton band made up of members of older Brighton bands, who descibre their sound as Gothadelia. Thye’ve posted up a few demos on Soundcloud and you can hear A Door above My Name below, and they play their first ever gig at the Prince Albert this Saturday on at 8.30:

Orchards new track is called Darling, which marries their familiar guitar sounds with 80s synths. You can see Orchards live this weekend at the Bad Pond Festival, alongside the likes of Luo, TEEFF, Patchwork Natives, and a whole load of other bands

It was only in our last new music post that we shared a new GAPS track, but they’re already back with a second new track this month. Much like Shatter, The View showcases GAPS’ more electronic side:

OMG it’s a new Fond of Rudy track. Sorry – weak joke, but I couldn’t resist. OMG is the name of the band’s new single, out now. You can catch them at Patterns on 3rd May supporting Cassia.

Sulky Boy have only just come onto our radar even though they’ve been going for a while now. They’ve got a new EP out tomorrow on Echochamp called Sulky Boys Play Songs of Love, and you can hear Drunk Dial taken from it here:

Finally, the new single from Atlas Wynd comes out this weekend according to the mailout I got earlier from Resident. Mona Lisa is out on 7″ backed by I’ve Had Enough. Unfortunately we missed telling you about the launch, which was last night at Sticky Mikes. Oops.

 

New Brighton Albums

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.

 

New Brighton Music

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.

New Music

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.

Upcoming gig picks : Drill Festival, Les Enfants Terribles and Bleeding Hearts Christmas party

In a rare return to our gig picks posts, here’s three gigs that have caught our eye:

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 10604562_10152654609889262_1113715772719153842_o 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.

New Music

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:

New Music – Fear of Men, The New Union, Luo, Bentcousin, A Lily

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.

We’ve written about Fear of Men‘s new single Luna before (here and here), but now they’ve posted up the video, premiered earlier today over on Vice, featuring wrestling, archery and snake handling

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:
