As mentioned yesterday, we’ve got a lot of new music to catch up on. We made a bit of progress yesterday, but hopefully after today we’ll be up to date.
We’re playing catchup again this week after our holidays last week, and it seems that we missed a flurry of activity, so once again we’re going to keep things pretty brief, limiting our words to just what you need to know about the tracks.
The biggest news this week is that Blood Red Shoes have a new single. It’s called God Complex and is out now on Jazz Life:
Here’s this week’s new music roundup, just in time for Easter, and with two of Brighton’s biggest bands with brand new releases. New first of these is The Go! Team who shared the video for their new single The Only Thing New is U Finding Out About It. Previously only available as a bonus track on the Japanese version of Semicircle, it’s now out as a single for the rest of the world:
Making end of year lists is tough, especially for us. No, hear us out – this isn’t just some sob story. Most of the bands we write about are just starting out, so haven’t had albums out yet – should they be lower down the list or even omitted because they haven’t put out a long player? And conversely what about the bands who have released an album – surely they shouldn’t be higher in the list by default. And what about the more established bands – should we be including them at the expense of smaller bands? And how are we going to get around the fact that bands with more recent release or live dates are nearer the front of our mind than those who put records out at the start of the year? It’s a metaphorical minefield, so our list is rather arbitrary. It could easily have been twice as long, and as usual we’ve gone for bands rather than tracks or albums to get around it. Here’s numbers 25 through to 11: Continue reading
It’s been a fortnight since our last New Music roundup, so we’re playing catchup from the off. We’ll kick off with the new EP from Yonaka, Heavy, which came out last Friday. As mentioned in our gig preview post they’re playing in a few weeks time at Patterns, and then again at the Green Door Store in January. Here’s EP lead track Bubblegum:
It’s only been 10 days since our last New Music post, but somehow it feels like we’ve got a month’s worth of new music to share. Things are normally quiet in August, but the last couple of weeks have gone crazy. First up is the new single from Other States entitled Come Back To Me. Other States headline Brighton Electric on 19th September.
It’s been a fortnight since we made a new music post, and as usual when it’s been slightly longer, somehow there’s disproportionately more tunes to write about (and that’s not counting the ones we’re missing out because the Spotify / WordPress plugin isn’t working for us these days). So without further ado, our first track this week is another new track from the upcoming GAPS album. If We Remain is the latest track the band have shared from As It Is, which comes out on 22nd June (according to the iTunes preorder page)
