October Gig Previews

October already. How time flies. We’re not quite as prompt as we would have liked with this month’s gig previews post – if we were we might have tipped the Platform B FM licence launch at the Green Door Store last night. Instead though we’ll kick off with a gig that’s been mentioned before tomorrow night.

Untitled (12)sMatters by Fröst came out last Friday and was named Resident’s album of the day . They’ve also made the launch gig their gig of the week too, so you don’t have to just take our word for it. It takes place at the Prince Albert, with support from Spill Gold.

There’s another album launch taking place next Wednesday too. The Haunt sees the return of 12 Stone Toddler and marks the release of their new album Idiolalia.

Our next tip takes place on 12th October at Brighton Electric. According to what we’ve read, there will be “a FREE induction course presented by myself – special guest speaker & founder of the Temple of B, Ronald K. Moiste. Ronald will be promoting a radical new book: Skin and Bone, a chronicle of his journey into finding B and how she helped me find myself and de-calcify my pineal gland (and liver)”. What we believe is actually taking place is the launch party for Sking & Bone, the new single from Libra Libra, with support from Inwards and Battery Operated Orchestra, although there’s only one way to find out.

One of the big releases last month was Black Honey‘s debut album. They head off on tour across the UK and Europe, playing Concorde 2 on Sun 14th October.

Wild Cat Strike‘s debut album comes out this Friday on Small Pond, but they’re waiting until Monday 15th October for the launch, which will take place at Pop Up Brighton (down near the i360). Support comes from Good Guy Clarence, I Feel Fine and Elliot Tatler.

41606980_685067261856493_1753955113430417408_oIt seems to be a month of plugging launch parties in this gig preview’s post. Here’s another – Lazybones launch their new single Heart Beat Like A Drum at Green Door Store on Wednesday 17th October. Also on the bill are Sit Down, Big and the Fat and Swoon.

Finally, the last we’ve got to mention is Our Girl, who are spending most of October on tour. They play a hometown gig at The Haunt on Friday 26th with Breathe Panel supporting.

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).

21369032_1560882130635579_931757122990434948_oThe big gig to mention this month is David Gedge’s At The Edge of The Sea mini-festival which takes place over two days at the Concorde 2. Both his bands always play every year and this time around there’s a 30th anniversary performance of Tommy by The Wedding Present on Friday 10th August as well as a headline set by them on the following night too. Cinerama play on Saturday afternoon at 3.30pm. The rest of the bill looks pretty tasty too (with a bit more Brighton representation in there) – Desperate Journalist, Terry de Castro, Young Romance, Helen And The Horns, Salad, The Catenary Wires, Amelia Coburn, Vinny Peculiar, Jetstream Pony, Oliver Elf Army and All Flags Are Grey are listed on the line up for the rest of the weekend. On top of the music, this year also features a showing of Something Left Behind, a documentary that tells the story of the Wedding Present’s debut album George Best, at the Duke of York’s Cinema at 4pm on Friday that also features a Q&A with David Gedge.

Our most straightforward gig in our previews this month is on Tuesday 21st August at the Green Door Store. It’s straightforward in that it isn’t a festival or an in-store, but the fact that The Academy of Sun are headlining probably means that it won’t be that straightforward as your average gig. Support comes from Kemper Norton and M. Butterfly & The Glass Saints.

37592963_10155780140873775_8857996707967795200_oThe following day Our Girl play at Resident roughly coinciding with the launch of their album Stranger Today (the album’s out on 17th August, but the in store isn’t until Wednesday 22nd). If you pre-order the album from Resident (which is available on a variety of CD, LP and cassette formats), you’ll get a guest list place which will get you in.

Our last thing to mention is the Fiddlers Street Festival taking place on the Sunday of the Bank Holiday, which is being curated by Warsaw Radio and Night House outside the Fiddlers Elbow. Keep an eye out of Facebook for line up announcements.

It’s a quiet week for new music, but it’s quality over quantity. First up is sometime member of Frost and The Larsens Johanna Bramli, whose debut solo EP came out last Friday. The five track EP is entitled Spirals and also features vocals from Debbie Clare:

Brighton Music Blog Great Escape / Alt Escape 2017 preview

TGE17
It’s almost that time again – the highlight in the Brighton musical calendar, when anywhere you can fit in a PA becomes venue for a few days. Yes, this coming weekend is The Great Escape Festival. We haven’t finalised our plans, but we’re probably going to end up seeing more Alt Escape stuff than proper Great Escape stuff, because that’s where the bulk of the local bands are playing. If you haven’t got yourself a ticket yet then you can get into all the Alt Escape stuff without one anyway.

Here’s this week’s New Music roundup. We’re kicking off with Our Girl whose EP Normally comes out on local label Cannibal Hymns on 18th November. The video for No Big Deal taken from the EP was featured on Vevo this week. Good work Our Girl!

We posted the audio for the new Gang single Dead in our last New Music roundup, but with a track name like that they would have been missing a trick if they didn’t do something to celebrate Halloween earlier this week. Right on cue they sent us the video:

Kudu Blue have a new track out called NGFM. They finally play their first headline shows later this month, in London on 16th November and at the Hope & Ruin on 17th.

It’s been a while since we wrote about The Space Agency, but they’ve just let us know about a double A side single The Devil’s Saddle / Tiger Paw, out now on their own label Tremolo Records and available to buy through their bandcamp page.

The latest band to sign up to the Communion singles club are MarthaGunn, who’ve featured on these pages before. The lead track from their single is Honest, which you can hear below. Look out too for the acoustic video of the track filmed in a church in Wales.

In advance of the release of their album Abstract Figures in the Dark, which comes out a week tomorrow, Tigercub have shared a video for  Memory Boy, made up of footage shot at their gig in October at Patterns:

Rounding up this week is This Party, whose new single Money comes out on Moscow Let’s Go records on 14th November

It’s been a few weeks since our last New Music post, and we were playing catchup with that one, so there’s a lot of ground to cover. Here’s a selection of our favourite tunes that have come to our attention in the last couple of weeks.

First up is Our Girl with their debut single Sleeper, the coolest four minutes of guitar music we’ve heard in a while:
