There’s four new releases to tell you about this week, from some new bands, and some more established bands. So without further ado…

The Electric Soft Parade – The Sun Never Sets Around Here

The White brothers next single, put out to support their mini-tour later this month (which sadly doesn’t include a Brighton date at the time of writing) is Idiots opener The Sun Never Sets Around Here. There’s a home made video, and the track has been re-recorded, with a brand new guitar solo and a completely different second half.

Atlasless is the debut EP from new Brighton four piece Poles Apart. It features three tracks of atmospheric rock and is up on Bandcamp now as a name-your-price download.

Octopuses – Ghost in the House

Octopuses are lining up for the release their second single Ghost In The House. With a title like that, it could only be released on Halloween, when it’ll be available as a free download from Big Salad Records. Until then you can enjoy the second home made video of today’s round up.

British Sea Power – Monsters of Sunderland

Finally, British Sea Power have put out a video today of Monsters of Sunderland from their album Machineries of Joy, featuring the bears which are staples of their live sets. The video only went up today, so catch it while it’s fresh!
