New Brighton Music

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.

Dog in the Snow have just put out the second single from their upcoming album Consume Me. The single is called Child and was out last Friday. We’ve got a Brighton Rocks lined up with Helen coming up sometime soon, so watch this space.

Projector are releasing their new AA side single Love / Dreaming on cassette on 15th May with a launch party at the Green Door Store.

Resonators new single Right Time came out last Friday on Wah Wah 45s. Alongside the normal download options, there’s also a super-limited 7″ with the remixes, but hurry if you want one because there’s only five left on bandcamp at the time of writing:

The New Faith release their new single tomorrow. It’s called Fritter Away and is taken from their upcoming album Me On You, which is being launched at the Brightelm Centre on 13th October.

Battery Operated Orchestra are back with a new electro banger of a single, the title track from last year’s album Radiation. It’ll be available as a free download for a week from 12th September via the band’s website.

We missed the launch date (and launch gig) for Jenna Bennett Brighton themed single City By The Sea, although in our defence, we didn’t actually hear about it until after the event. You can watch the video here, and listen to the audio through the usual outlets:

We missed the launch of Luna Blue‘s Nightjar EP too, which was last Friday at the Hope & Ruin. Here’s the lead track from their EP which is out now:

Next we have the new one from Kev Minney, Like I Always. It’s taken from his upcoming album Stories of the Sky, which launches at Café Plenty on 9th September.

Finally, here’s Haze by Grapefruit Moon. Their debut album is due for release in November but you can catch them live before that on 5th September at The Joker.

Album news – Wytches, Tigercub, Resonators and Bloom

It’s about time we had a catch up on the new albums by local bands which are either just out, or just about to come out. The first of these is The Wytches whose new LP All Your Happy Life came out on Heavenly right at the end of September. As a taster, here’s Crest of Death:

Tigercub are out on tour around Europe right now in support of their upcoming album. It’s called Abstract Figures in the Dark, and it comes out on 11th November on Alcopop. If you pre-order it from Resident you’ll get two free tickets to the band’s instore performance on 13th November. Here’s track three from the album, Omen:

The new album from Resonators also came out last Friday (although they played a Brighton launch at the Dome Studio Theatre a couple of weeks back). Their new release is called Imaginary People and is out on Wah Wah 45s. Here’s album opener All The Paths:

Bloom launched their debut album What Is Life with a gig at Latest Music Bar a couple of weekends ago. Formerly the Beautiful Word, the band have grown up, and are displaying a new-found maturity and a love of synths. The band have a new video out on Friday, and are also selling a very limited run if cassettes of the demos for their album (which you can find more info about on their Facebook page). If you’d like to know what to expect from the record, here’s Shout:

 

Weekend gig picks

We thought it would be worth posting up a few of this weekend’s gigs, since there’s so many great ones going on (and so many that we won’t be able to get to, but want to make sure you know about them). Tonight, Restlesslist play a set at the Prince Albert of their first new stuff that they’ve put together since the brilliant Coral Island Girl which they’ve been playing all yeat. Over the road at the Green Door Store, Ninja Tune’s Grasscut are playing a homecoming gig, and out in Hanover, The Bobby McGees are bound to entertain at the Horse & Groom. Meanwhile, The Resonators will be playing tracks from their new album The Constant at the Blind Tiger.

Tomorrow, our friends over at Some Of It Is True are hosting Bellman at the Palmeira, and Flash Bang Band are supporting. Cupboard Music are hosting a night called Hey! Fever at the Green Door Store, with Speak Galactic and Soft Arrows on the bill, and British Sea Power are playing a live soundtrack to a new film called From The Sea To The Land Beyond at Duke of Yorks.

Then on Saturday, Catherine Ireton plays her final Treasure Tracks 4 in association with Source New Music. Who knows exactly where that’s going to be! Our final pick of the weekend is Anneka who’s supporting Plaid at the Concorde 2.

Here’s to a great weekend of live music!
