Here’s a slightly belated new music blog post, catching up with a couple of weeks of tunes that have dropped into our inbox. Because we’re a bit behind we’ll split things into two, with another post tomorrow. Hopefully normal service will resume soon.

When I sat down last night to put together this week’s new music post I didn’t think it would be quite as big as it has turned out, which is why it’s taken me an extra day to post it up. In the last eight days we’ve heard about a dozen new tunes that we need to share. Good work Brighton musicians!
First up is the new tune from The Fiction Aisle. Their first proper single will be with us at some point, but in the meantime the band have put up the mournful Soon Enough The Morning Comes:
We’ve written about a few of Salt Ashes previous singles, but none have sounded as dancefloor friendly or well produced as Raided:
Silence Myself is a marked change for Fable, whose previous releases have been much noisier and intimidating, where her latest offering is beatless with just a soft synth backing. You can catch Fable playing live at the Prince Albert on 18th March. supported by Fragile Creatures.
Monoman‘s beats have been augmented with the vocal talents of Molly Burbridge on his latest track Untouchable. Head over to Monoman’s Soundcloud page to hear another track they’ve recorded together called Orion.
Krak Krak, featuring ex Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster‘s drummer Rob Ling released their debut EP Burnt At The Stake yesterday on Sonic Anhedonic records. Here’s EP opener War on Us:
Bones is the new single from Object Object. In the band’s bio, they claim to be influenced by 80s New Wave and Fleetwood Mac, which you can hear coming through on the track:

IYES cover of Beyonce’s Crazy in Love first appeared in December 2013, but it’s been given a new lease of life with a remix by Ben Pearce which turned up online last week:
Talking of remixes, earlier this year Moulettes put out their single Glorious Year. Champion Fever‘s remix wasn’t put out with the single, but he has shared it with us as a free download on bandcamp:
One more remix? How about Ambassadeurs reworking of Marvin Gaye‘s classic Let’s Get It On. Ambassadeurs is playing live this saturday at the Green Door Store, supported by Foreign Skin.
Rory Indiana‘s Empiricism EP came out last September but was promoted with other tracks at the time. This week the band, who are already in the studio hard at work on their next release, put up a video to the EP’s title track:
