New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s new music roundup, as eclectic as always. First up is Mayday by The Go! Team, which we’ve previously featured the audio of, but there’s a proper video for it now, and it also gives us a chance to remind you all that their gig this weekend has been moved to the Concorde:

Next up is Bird in the Belly, whose new single Give Me Back My Heart Again came out last Friday. It’s taken from their debut album The Crowning which comes out on March 23rd. You can catch them playing at The Village on 1st March :

Relax is the new Doves-esque single from Breathe Panel, out now on Fatcat records:

The Isle of CC released a new single at the end of January on Tapeline records. It’s called Listen and you can, erm, listen on Spotify below. If you want to hear more, The Isle of CC will be playing at the QM Records Spectrum night coming up on February 22nd at the Basement.

The Touch is the first single taken from the new Thieves by the Code album from Ava’s Revenge. The single is out now, the album comes out on 14th March:

wuuad are releasing a six track self titled EP on 17th February. In advance of that they’ve shared EP opener Cathedral. The single launch is up in London, but the band are playing Brighton gig on Feb 24th at Brighton Electric with Ezekiel Doo, PUSSLIQUOR, Gloomz and Grymm also on the bill.

I Feel Fine are a new emo band who have just released their debut single entitled Everyday Safari:

Strange Cages release their new single Hypothalamus Blues on 16th Feb, and are lanuching it at a late gig at the Green Door Store on Feb 23rd. Listening to the six minutes of bluesy psychedelia, it only seems right that it’s a late show.

Nick West has been working under a number of different aliases over the last few years, but has recently settled in Brighton and has started releasing music under his own name. The first track as himself is the synthpoppy The Watcher, whose lyrics draw upon his experience of depression:

So, welcome to probably our last new music post of the year. As December hits we’ll be doing our end of year round ups, but it’s rare that anything gets put out in the run up to Christmas anyway. Continue reading

August Gig Previews

A few days later than anticipated (aren’t we always apologising for late posts?) here’s a few of the gigs happening around town in August.

joker sFirst up is a series of gigs at the Joker called “Wanna Hang?”. They’re taking place every Tuesday in August (so there’s been one already and the next is tomorrow night). The future gigs see headlines from Breathe Panel, The New Tusk and Beachtape, but there’s four bands on each night. Tickets are only a mere three pounds which strikes us as a bargain.

Next Sunday is what’s probably Brighton Music Blog faves grasshopper‘s last gig for a while. They’re on the bill with Murder Boys and Strange Cages at The Prince Albert.

The following night (Monday 14th August), Brighton Noise are also putting on a night at the Prince Albert. It’s headlined by 80’s Matchbox B-line disaster spin-off Piano Wire, and also has T House from Charlottefield / Sweet Williams on the line up, but we’re most interested in this gig because it’s the debut performance from Black Bunny, Thomas White’s new band.

It’s been far too long since we made a new music post – transcribing the recent interview took forever, and rare nights out eat into the limited time we have to post. So here we are with a bit of catching up to do. Inevitably we won’t be able to write about everything we’ve sent, so we’ll do our best, and then try and catch up when we can.

We’ll kick things off properly with something brand new – this weekend ex Shrag / Blue Minkies member Steph Goodman released her debut solo album If You Know You Know. I could describe it as experimental DIY pop, but your best bet is to head over to Bandcamp and give it a listen:

Another Saturday in Brighton

There is no shortage of great music to choose from in Brighton. Last Saturday we took in two great live events, at the Green Door Store and Brunswick Pub with an array of excellent local acts, in yet another marathon … Continue reading

It’s been a few weeks since we’ve done a new music roundup. There’s doesn’t seem to be quite as much music coming out as there was a couple of months back for some reason, but there’s still plenty for us to write about. We would write about the new Tigercub track Destroy, leaner and more angular than some of their melodic tracks, but we can’t share the stream. You’ll have to click here to go over to soundcloud and listen for yourself.

Dog in the Snow have contributed to the 405 Alanis Morrissette Jagged Little Pill cover project. The album was 20 years old last month, and Helen has put her mark on Right Through You
