June Top Ten

Slightly delayed since we’ve been on holiday, here’s out top ten tunes from June:

1 Fear of Men – Descent

Descent is the second single taken from Fear of Men’s fantastic debut album Loom. The band have spent the past few months supporting Pains of Being Pure at Heart across the US and Europe. The tour’s now over, so hopefully they’re taking a well earned rest before playing a few festival dates over the summer, including Green Door Store’s 234 festival taking place over the August Bank Holiday Weekend.

2 Anushka – Mansions

Mansions is taken from Anushka’s brand new album Broken Circuit, out now on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings label. It’s good, but play it loud and it’s even better.

3 Jacko Hooper – Egg Shells

Because we’ve been away we missed the launch party for Jacko Hooper’s new For You EP, which took place last week at the Green Door Store. The EP is out now on One Inch Badge’s record label.

4 Palm Springs – Seal My Fate

Seal My Fate is one of those slow burners which has got under our skin a little bit more every time we’ve played it. It’s out now on 7″ on Random Acts of Vinyl

5 Alex Banks – All You Can Do

The whole of Alex Banks’ new album Illuminate but we’ve decided to put the Gazelle Twin collaboration All You Can Do into our top ten.

6 Moulettes – So It Goes

To promote their new album Constellations, Moulettes put out a double A-side single, with Lady Vengeance backed with So It Goes which we’ve featured.

7 Bunty – We Are Here

We Are Here is the new single from the ever-creative Bunty, launched at last month’s Spectrum night at the Dome Studio Theatre.

8 Black Honey – Sleep Forever

Black Honey are the latest band to have a single put out by Duly Noted Records, which have put out previous releases by IYES and Fickle Friends. In a change of style for the label, Sleep Forever’s backing isn’t electronica but lush reverb drenched guitars.

9 The Mojo Fins – Longwave Reach

Longwave Reach is the latest single from The Mojo Fins brand new album Circa, which has been getting plenty of plays at Brighton Music Blog towers.

10 Faux Flux – You Know

Fuax Flux came out with another new track in June, the summery You Know.

 

New Music – Tyrannosaurus Dead, Bar Stool Preachers, Mother of Billions, Will Mussett, Black Honey, Fable, Andrew Montgomery, Mindofalion

Here’s this week’s dose of new music for you all. We’re kicking things off with Tyrannosaurus Dead, who have a new split single coming out soon with Joanna Gruesome. Post Holiday Dead Song is out on 7″ on July 21st, and can be pre-ordered now via Odd Box Records.

Bar Stool Preachers are a new local ska punk band. Here’s the video for their debut release One Fool Down:

We can’t stop listening to the Mother of Billions we posted up last week. Where the original had a classy trip hop feel, the Arshaw Remix gives Universe a sexy house sheen:

News about Hurricane, the first single to be taken from Will Mussett‘s debut album, only reached us this evening. Here’s the lyric video for the track, taken from the record due later this year.

Black Honey‘s first track was also a new arrival in our inbox today. The band are already getting props from Royal Honey and The Wytches, which should be more than enough recommendation to get your ears around Sleep Forever

Fable is a new Brighton based singer songwriter, but don’t let the description pigeon hole her. At only 19 years old she’s already provided vocals for the upcoming Orbital album and now releases her first track I Speak Words

Back in the 90s, angelic voiced Andrew Montgomery was better known as lead singer of Geneva. Since then he’s been involved in a number of musical projects, but later this year releases his debut solo album. After the Storm is the album’s opener and a taste of what we can expect when Ruled By Dreams comes out on 5th October.

Our last track this week is Obstacle by Mindofalion. The single is out on July 18th, with a launch gig the following day at The Hope:
