New Brighton Music

After last week’s massive post, this week’s new music post is far more digestible. The big tune this week is the title track from Yonaka’s debut LP which drops a week on Friday:

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

The received wisdom is that new music tends to dry up as you head towards the end of the year, but more than halfway into November, there’s no abating from our local music scene. Here’s this week’s dose of new music:

New Brighton Music

There’s loads of new music this week, but before I get on with that, there’s been a couple of comments on social media after the new music posts from people pointing out that I haven’t featured their band. Neither of these acts had actually sent us any links or information, which makes things quite difficult – while we try to be proactive we aren’t omniscient and things do pass us by. The best way of getting in touch to get featured is to drop a mail to BrightonMusicBlog@gmail.com, with soundcloud / bandcamp / youtube links (or Spotify if you must, but as you’ll see below they don’t look great on blogs powered by WordPress), making sure you mention that you’re from Brighton if we don’t know you.

Artist: Orbital
Track Name: P.H.U.K (edit)
Taken From: P.H.U.K single
Release Date: out now
