New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s new music roundup, which comes with an apology to half of the bands included. We’re off on holiday at stupid o clock tomorrow morning and that means I should be spending my evening packing rather than blogging, so the tracks are included but half of my accompanying words aren’t, leaving you with just the words I note down before I flesh things out for some tracks. Sorry!

This weeks first tune is the new single from Orchards which somehow got missed from our last roundup. It’s called Luv You 2 and came out on 4th April. You can catch Orchards representing Brighton at the Great Escape next month

Next up is Underwater Boys who have a new single called Apricot. Underwater Boys next local gig will also be part of the Great Escape (get used to me saying this a lot over the next four weeks)

We can’t see Tuval mentioned in the line up for the Great Escape yet though. That doesn’t mean he won’t be playing (we know of at least one band who aren’t listed yet), or that he won’t pop up at an Alt Escape gig somewhere. Their My Love Don’t Worry EP came out last Friday and is released on download or limited CD:

Pandaux has a new three track EP out of effervescent electronic, called XYZ

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 – Fear of Men, Fujiya & Miyagi, Palm Springs, FEVRS, Mother of Billions, Bunty, Jacko Hooper, The Hundredth Anniversary, Water Canvas, Rooster Cole, Moulettes, Bentcousin, Adolescent, IYES

We seem to be chasing our tail with new music again – this week we’ve got absolutely loads again for you up with more from Fear of Men (who appeared in the last new music roundup we did with their French version of Luna), Bentcousin, Fujiya & Miyagi, Moulettes, Hundredth Anniversary and many, many more:

First up is the video for Fear of Men‘s new single Descent, directed by Eleanor Hardwick, who also directed the video for Dog in the Snow’s last single Factory.

Fujiya & Miyagi have put out a video for the lead track from their new album Artificial Sweeteners. The band are currently off touring the new album and have taken AK/DK along as support.

Palm Springs new single Seal My Fate is out now on Hove’s Random Acts of Vinyl label on 7″ and download, and also has this rather tasty black and white video:

FEVRS (pronounced “Fears” – the V is actually an upsidedown A) put out their debut EP on Everything is Chemical earlier this month. Here’s the first track, the ambient electronic Sirens / Control

Mother of Billions are a new London / Brighton based pop duo who are putting out their debut single Universe on 10th July. The launch party for the single takes place at The Hope on 11th July.

We’re gutted that we missed Bunty‘s single launch which took place at the Spectrum night at the Dome last Friday. The summery We Are Here is out now:

Egg Shells is the lead track from Jacko Hooper‘s upcoming For You EP, which had a very successful pledge campaign last year. The EP comes out on 30th June on One Inch Badge’s imprint:

Boon Magazine put out a 12″ Record to coincide with their last print issue. Here’s The Hundredth Anniversary‘s contribution, a slow brooding number called Stretched Lungs

Water Canvas are a new Brighton based rock band. You can grab their new At Least EP at bandcamp or take a listen to lead track Memorial Drive here:

The brand new Rooster Cole track Up To The Teeth only appeared on Soundcloud this afternoon. We don’t know much about it, but we like it!

Something else only uploaded today is the video to Moulettes new single. So It Goes is out today and is backed by an edit of Lady Vengeance which we’ve previously featured.

Bentcousin had an early demo of Dizzy up on Soundcloud last year, but that got taken down a long time ago. Since then they’ve rerecorded their ode to Brighton Summers for a full release on Team Love records on 1st July:

Adolescent have a video for another track from last month’s Golden Halls EP. The video for Hangshai is a digital animation which matches the music it accompanies:

Finally we have another remix from IYES, who have mixed up Brooklyn’s Paperwhite, making their track Magic sound much much cooler than the original
