New Brighton Music

Back to a normal sized New Music post this week, which doesn’t take me several evenings to write up. We’ve got plans for a new album roundup later this week too, so watch this space.

Our first track this week is Impossible Objects of Desire by Fujiya & Miyagi, taken from their self titled album, or EP3, depending on how much you like vinyl. Listening to the lyrical content of the track, I’d say that they’d probably describe it as being from EP3:

Next up is Normanton Street, who played at the Unitarian church last weekend to launch their new single Supreme. As with a lot of their videos, it’s filmed around and about town, so see how much you can spot while you listen:

Dog in the Snow launch their new single this Saturday at the Green Door Store. It’s called Magic and it’s taken from their upcoming album Consume Me:

 

One of the supports at the Dog in the Snow launch is Mother Me, whose debut single  Make Me Whole was premiered on Gold Flake Paint last week:

 

Lastly (I told you it was much more manageable this week) we have M U M M Y, who have just released an EP entitled Others. M U M M Y have a few gigs coming up, supporting Aquaserge at the Prince Albert on Wednesday 28th June, and also on the same bill as Stephen Evans at the Green Door Store on Sunday 9th July.

 

 

 

New Brighton Music

I had a thought this week that I should make all my new music posts on the same day of the week, and then they’d be New Music Mondays or something like that, but then I realised I could never be so organised as to organise my week like that, so we’re stuck with New Brighton Music as the post name, and they’ll come out as I manage to get the time in front of my computer. Anyway, our first track this week is from Dog in the Snow, a song called Magic taken from their upcoming album Consume Me due later this year:

A few years after their first collaboration, Pete Fij and Terry Bickers have returned with some new material. There’s an utterly gorgeous single – Let’s Get Lost Together – all chiming guitars, beautiful harmonies and a lovely world weariness, that they describe as a Bromance song. It’s taken from an album called We Are All Millionaires which comes out on July 14th which we’ll definitely be writing more about in time.

Alyss‘ new EP Alchemy came out earlier this month and is packed with some of the best bass and beats we’ve heard in a while. You can check out the lead single Pyramid from it here:

At completely the other end of the musical spectrum are new Brighton band LOM. Accompanied by some beautiful animation, There is a Place is taken from the band’s Kingdom EP which is out now.

White Room were one of a number of bands whose people got in touch to ask if we’d be catching up with them at the Great Escape. We do our best, but unfortunately we didn’t make it to their gig, but to make up for it, here’s their new single Take Me Away:

We did make it up to the Black Dove to see Bloom though. As well playing three shows at the Great Escape, they’ve also put up a video for their new single Such a Shame, and finished posting all of the tracks for their Letting Go charity remix album too.

I’m not sure about their name, and I’m even less sure about their graphics, but Tidal Rave‘s new EP Neon Pants Party is actually a pretty good synth pop record. I say “record”, but apparently it’s been released on a USB stick inside a UV wristband that you can wear out raving. Obviously.

 

New Music – Fear of Men, Fujiya & Miyagi, Palm Springs, FEVRS, Mother of Billions, Bunty, Jacko Hooper, The Hundredth Anniversary, Water Canvas, Rooster Cole, Moulettes, Bentcousin, Adolescent, IYES

We seem to be chasing our tail with new music again – this week we’ve got absolutely loads again for you up with more from Fear of Men (who appeared in the last new music roundup we did with their French version of Luna), Bentcousin, Fujiya & Miyagi, Moulettes, Hundredth Anniversary and many, many more:

First up is the video for Fear of Men‘s new single Descent, directed by Eleanor Hardwick, who also directed the video for Dog in the Snow’s last single Factory.

Fujiya & Miyagi have put out a video for the lead track from their new album Artificial Sweeteners. The band are currently off touring the new album and have taken AK/DK along as support.

Palm Springs new single Seal My Fate is out now on Hove’s Random Acts of Vinyl label on 7″ and download, and also has this rather tasty black and white video:

FEVRS (pronounced “Fears” – the V is actually an upsidedown A) put out their debut EP on Everything is Chemical earlier this month. Here’s the first track, the ambient electronic Sirens / Control

Mother of Billions are a new London / Brighton based pop duo who are putting out their debut single Universe on 10th July. The launch party for the single takes place at The Hope on 11th July.

We’re gutted that we missed Bunty‘s single launch which took place at the Spectrum night at the Dome last Friday. The summery We Are Here is out now:

Egg Shells is the lead track from Jacko Hooper‘s upcoming For You EP, which had a very successful pledge campaign last year. The EP comes out on 30th June on One Inch Badge’s imprint:

Boon Magazine put out a 12″ Record to coincide with their last print issue. Here’s The Hundredth Anniversary‘s contribution, a slow brooding number called Stretched Lungs

Water Canvas are a new Brighton based rock band. You can grab their new At Least EP at bandcamp or take a listen to lead track Memorial Drive here:

The brand new Rooster Cole track Up To The Teeth only appeared on Soundcloud this afternoon. We don’t know much about it, but we like it!

Something else only uploaded today is the video to Moulettes new single. So It Goes is out today and is backed by an edit of Lady Vengeance which we’ve previously featured.

Bentcousin had an early demo of Dizzy up on Soundcloud last year, but that got taken down a long time ago. Since then they’ve rerecorded their ode to Brighton Summers for a full release on Team Love records on 1st July:

Adolescent have a video for another track from last month’s Golden Halls EP. The video for Hangshai is a digital animation which matches the music it accompanies:

Finally we have another remix from IYES, who have mixed up Brooklyn’s Paperwhite, making their track Magic sound much much cooler than the original
