Nobody releases anything in December. Or so I thought. I figured that after putting up my end of year list I could come back in January to a relatively sleep start, but it seems that everybody else was thinking differently. So here’s what’s probably our biggest new music post ever, featuring some of Brighton’s heaviest hitters – Steve Mason has a new album has a new album out this week, and Blood Red Shoes’ new LP is due any week now

It’s been too hot for new blog posts the past couple of weeks. It was too hot for me to sit in front of my PC typing away, and it was too hot for you all to be sitting in reading the internet. Now the weather’s slightly more bearable, here’s a whole heap of new music that we’ve been waiting to tell you about:
We wrote about Aashton‘s new single I Can’t Shake It way back in April. Things got a bit delayed with the released, but it’s out now, and to celebrate he’s giving away a free download of his track Status Ain’t Crooked:
Phantom Runners‘ debut EP is out on 22nd August. The three track EP featuring featuring On The Run, Anna and Goddess of War has been produced by Fun Loving Criminal’s Huey Morgan. You can hear lead track On The Run here:
Whenever we hear that Eagles for Hands has posted some new music up we drop what we’re doing and listen straight away. Glass Heart is Laurie Ross’ latest offering of uplifting electronica with female vocals.
Thyla release their debut EP in October and have shared the first track, Sticky Red. You don’t get too much female fronted grunge so Sticky Red is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Oslo Parks have just released their debut single on X Novo records.If you like the sound of Twin look out for the fantastic video produced by Jeb Hardwick from Phoria.
Samuel Organ has posted some more electronica to his Soundcloud page. Feeling Underwater starts off ambient before slipping into a slick house tune:
Heliopause gave use the heads up about the new video from Stuart Warwick, who have played a few live dates together recently. Here’s the haunting Sailors.
I Am Ampersand recently did a few solo shows supporting Pete Fij and Terry Bickers (whose new album Broken Heart Surgery is on our list of things to write about). To celebrate the event, they’ve put up a reworked version of I Thought I was Alone which originally appeared on 2012’s eponymous album
Soft Walls is the solo project from The Cold Pumas’ Dan Reeves. No Time is the the name of his new album, and also the name of the lead single which has a video from Innerstrings Light Show:
Flash Bang Band got in touch with us today to share the video for their new single Art History. Art History is the third and final single to be taken from last year’s album Bite Your Tongue.
Tied to the Mast have an album called Some Strange Chemistry on the way later this year. Some of the album has been produced by the legendary Stephen Street but the first track they’re sharing from the album – Melissa – was produced by the band’s guitarist Rhys:
Brighton Music Blog favourites IYES are back with another remix , this time sprinkling skittery beats and wonky electronica over The Night VI‘s Wonderlust:
Finally, we have a live video from Adolescent, playing K:TV from their recent Golden Halls EP:
