Brighton Rocks #28 : Penelope Isles

We first approached Penelope Isles about doing a Brighton Rocks with us back in June but as we’ve been told my multiple people, they’re the hardest working band in town, so the post is only finally going up now. Their album Until The Tide Creeps In came out on Bella Union back in July and the band have been on tour pretty much all this year, most recently supporting the Flaming Lips and playing at British Sea Power’s Krankenhaus festival. Next week they kick off a headline worldwide tour, starting with Europe, then North America, then Europe again and back to the UK culminating in a headline gig at the Haunt on 11th December

July Gig Previews

It’s the first of July and summer’s definitely here. What’s hot in the world of Brighton music over the next month though? Read on and we’ll tell you…

65013478_2449985405052630_1447428644749180928_oThe first gig we have to mention takes place this Friday (5th), when The Physics House Band play at the Hope & Ruin, off the back of their recent Death Sequence EP. There are two local supports – Inwards and Jouis – and the nightwill be lit by Innerstrings.

Yumi & The Weather are on the road around the UK from today for their first full band tour. They’re playing at the Green Door Store on Monday 8th July.

This will be the first time we’ve actually caught a full Orchards set, having missed them so many times and only managing to catch the last couple of songs at this year’s Great Escape. Support comes from Libra Libra and Pollon.

Unless you’re lucky enough to be at one of the European festivals they’re playing at this summer, this is going to be your only chance to see them until their tour in November / December (which finishes at the Haunt on December 11th).

Finally, we couldn’t close off our gig preview without mentioning Rag’n’Bone Man’s gig at the Racecourse on Saturday 27th July. I’m not sure if he still lives locally, but does that really matter when he’s done so much for the local music scene – working his way up with Rum Committee, supporting AudioActive, and playing at the Brits in front of visuals of the pier.

Next week sees the return of The Great Escape, where we all get even less sleep than normal, and anywhere you could imagine a stage, and a few places you couldn’t, turn into venues for three days. It overshadows most other musical happenings in May, which is quite remarkable since May is also the month of Brighton Festival, so this post replaces our usual monthly gig preview. Continue reading

Here’s this week’s new music post, which starts a bit differently from normal because the first track I wanted to share isn’t online as far as I can see – It’s the Record Store Day release from Blood Red Shoes’ Jazz Life record label, and the release is called AA Sessions Volume One. It features contributions from AK/DK, Blood Red Shoes, Tigercub, Sick Joy and Projector. Hopefully by the time you read this they might still have a copy at Resident. If not, give Cult Hero, Vinyl Revolution or Rarekind a try. There’s only 500 for the whole country though, so good luck. Continue reading
