August Gig Preview

We’ve been a bit slow off the mark getting our August gig preview together, but August is actually a pretty quiet month for the local music scene (Let’s not let the fact that Britney and Chic played as part of Pride this weekend get in the way of things – it’s incredible that they played but hardly representative of what happening the rest of the month).

New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s new music roundup, starting off quiet, and getting noisier as we go along.

First up is La Lune, whose Bliss EP is every bit as lovely as the name suggests. Here’s EP opener He Breathes Colour When I Feel So Grey:

New Brighton Music

So, welcome to probably our last new music post of the year. As December hits we’ll be doing our end of year round ups, but it’s rare that anything gets put out in the run up to Christmas anyway. Continue reading

November / December gig preview

For this month’s gig preview post we’re actually going to cover November and December. Generally there aren’t as many gigs in December, and we’re normally distracted with end of year stuff on the blog, so it’s seems appropriate to cover two months in one post now. Continue reading

Night House – Heart on a Wire

Nick Williams’ troupe Night House release their new video today. It’s a lovely song called Heart on a Wire, reminiscent of early Leisure Society, and you can see the band performing it for Latest TV and a small select audience at the Marwood Cafe tonight. They’ll be playing a full set, along with support from blog favourite Ellie Ford and her new band line-up. Also playing are Michael Baker and Matthew the Oxx.

New Music

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve made a New Music post – not because there hasn’t been good new music coming out, but because life’s got in the way – so we’ve got some catching up to do.

First up is the first music put online from the White brothers new project The Fiction Aisle. They’ve played a couple of gigs at the Prince Albert (with the next in their residency being on 26th November) but Blue is the first most people would have heard of the new band. Where Electric Soft Parade were all about a guitar based sound, The Fiction Aisle present beautiful shimmering pop:

Next up is a new tune from Ambassadeurs written while on tour recently in the States. From You is four minutes of effortless electronica.

BentCousin post up far more tracks than we get a chance to but their latest effort, Hid, is rather lovely, a simple string backed song with Amelia taking on the bulk of vocal duties.

Great Pagans launched their album Cupid In Error at the Green Door Store on 6th November at and haven’t rested on their laurels since then, sharing a remix of So Pure by fellow Brighton act Acquaintance.

Fickle Friends have breathed some new life into some of their old singles in the past few weeks, with a few remixes popping up and now a Vevo featured video of For You:

Time for T launch their self titled EP next Monday (24th November). They’re holding a London launch on the day, but the Brighton party isn’t until 13th December. As a taster, they’ve shared EP track Long Day Home

Last but by no means least is New Year’s Prayer, the lead track from Night House‘s upcoming debut EP, which is also self titled:
