The music just keeps coming – Here’s this weeks new music round up. When we went to see AK/DK last week, we don’t remember them mentioning that they had a new release out, but it turns out that they do, and according to the release date on iTunes it was out the day of the gig. It’s a track called Lagom and comes backed with a Physics House Band remix:
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:
Lion Bark are giving away their new track Amongst The Many as a free download over on their bandcamp page. If you’re a fan of guitar pop, then this is for you. Lion Bark headline the newly refurbished Hope & Ruin (formerly just The Hope) on 21st March.
Last friday Record / Start put out their debut single on Post/Pop records. Rock from Afar (featured here) is backed with Followay, and is available over on the Post/pop bandcamp page. Hopefully that’s just a typo on the price of the digital download though!
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:
It’s ten days since our last new music post, and the music has been flooding in.
First up is the new single from Fickle Friends. For You is currently Hype Machine’s most blogged about track, so we’re a few days behind the curve with this one. That’s what happens if you take ten days between new music posts I guess. For You is another fantastic 80s influenced pop tune, following on from their previous singles Swim and Play.
J Tropic are Fickle Friends’ labelmates but Love Up is more r’n’b than pop. J Tropic’s three track debut EP is out on Duly Noted records on 27th October.
Human Touch by Gazelle Twin got a premier on The Line of Best Fit last week, and is taken from her upcoming album Unflesh, out next Monday. Gazelle Twin headline the next Spectrum Music Night at the Dome Studio Theatre next Friday night. The whole evening is a showcase for Gazelle Twin’s label Anti Ghost Moon Ray, and also has Benholz and Great Pagans on the bill.

Dark Train are a new Brighton duo who make dark brooding synth pop. Here’s their latest track Sing To You. If you like what you hear, Dark Train are supporting Return To The Sun at Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar next thursday:
Transformer have a new three track EP out entitled Feel The Beast. XLR8R offered a free download of the track Deepak from the EP, but here’s the title track:
We hadn’t rushed to write anything about the new Salt Ashes single If You Let Me Go because the PR email we got told us that it wasn’t out until October. However, a few clicks around the internet has told us that the single is actually out already on iTunes, and has been for a couple of weeks. Oops:
The last track we’re featuring today is something guitar based, from the debut EP Empiricism from Brighton based alternative rock band Rory Indiana. The EP comes out on September 26th. So far the only track out there from the EP is Sanctuary, which you can hear below:
