April Top Ten

Here’s our top ten tracks that we’ve been listening to in April:

Sea BedCaves

Technically this came out last month (and we included Haunted in last month’s top ten), but their Rosso EP hasn’t left our stereo, and their debut gig at the Prince Albert supporting Them The Sky was awesome.

MomotaroRoots

Momotaro’s new EP Highest actually came out yesterday which made it May, but since the band put up Roots from the EP on Soundcloud, it’s been on heavy rotation around here.

Fiction AisleEach and Every One

It was actually Each and Every One’s joint double A side that we wrote about a few weeks ago, but it was this track of the pair that really caught our attention.

CurxesWhat You Want

Curxes debut album is out in just a few hours time! We’ve been a big fan of the band’s retro electro (or Blitz Pop as they like to call it) for ages, so can’t wait to hear the rest of the record.

The Go! TeamYe Ye Yamaha

Where so many bands put out re-releases or remixes for Record Store Day, The Go! Team put out two brand new tracks. That’s how it should be done.

Black HoneySpinning Wheel

Spinning Wheel is our favourite track that should have been in a Tarantino film this month and deserves to be played LOUD. We’ve not caught them live yet, so we’re hoping to get to see them at the Great Escape in a few weeks.

ClowwnsIdiot Bouncing

The Artful Execution of Macho Bimbo, the debut album by one of Brighton’s finest live bands Clowwns, has been in gestation since before we started the blog so we’re pleased that it’s finally getting released soon. Idiot Bouncing is the free download put up to persaude us all to buy the record.

Ambassadeurs – Can’t See You

Can’t See You is another track which we haven’t actually featured on the blog, having posted up other tracks from the EP, but for our top ten we had to post the release’s title track.

MiamigoHard To Love

DIY mag wrote “Bands could spend decades figuring out how to write the biggest hooks and they might not get close to this” about Hard to Love, and who are we to disagree.

10 Gazelle Twin – Love and Mercy

After doing her best to give us nightmares with last year’s Unflesh, Gazelle Twin is doing her best to gain our affections again with her cover of Brian Wilson’s Love and Mercy.

New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s dose of new music, catching up after a break last week when we slacked a bit because it was Easter.

The first tune this week is the debut single from Tom White’s new band The Fiction Aisle. It’s a A-side with the track below A Promise Kept being backed with another new song Each & Every One. It came out yesterday on new Brighton label Chord Orchard and you can download it now from Bandcamp.

Next up is the new single from Black Honey. Spinning Wheel is the bands liveliest track yet. sounding like something from a Tarantino soundtrack. The single came out last week on Duly Noted records and is backed with Madonna, which we featured last month.

After a bit of a break (up until last week, the last time they had posted to their facebook page was February 2014), The Bobby McGees are back. Four new tracks have been posted to Jimmy McGee’s YouTube page, with Kings of England being the track they used to tell us about the new material on facebok.

Back to the rock now for the new track from Jolta. One Apple Tree is taken from the band’s debut EP Sunset Surrender which came out last week:

Ambassadeurs new EP came out yesterday as an exclusive download on Beatport. If you buy your music elsewhere, you’ll have to wait until the end of the month, but till then here’s track two from the EP, My Way:

BentCousin have gone disco. Technically it’s not just Bentcousin, they’ve collaborated with Alcatraz for their joint new single Under The Sun, which you can pick up on Bandcamp for only a pound.

Last but by no means least is the new single from Bunty, which comes out on Beatabet next month. Before she releases We Are Here, Bunty is off on a tour of the UK which started earlier this month in Norwich and stops off at the Speigeltent as part of Brighton Fringe on 11th May. You’ll also be able to catch her a few days later as part of the Great Escape.
