New Music – Random Acts of Vinyl, King Porter Stomp, GAPS

The flow of new music has slowed recently, as it always does this time of year. The blogs are otherwise occupied with end of year lists (ours will be coming soon), but there’s still a few bits and pieces out there to tell you about.

King Porter Stomp‘s new single Warning, which features the talents of reggae legend Prince Fatty came out last week on Feet Up records on 10″ and download. It’s backed with a Dub remix by dub producer Nick Manasseh.

Yesterday saw the release of GAPS new single She Bears a Flower. We posted up the video for the single back in October, so we won’t repeat ourselves. Instead what we have for you is the b-side We Are Here – the most ambient thing we’ve heard from the band so far:

Finally, now it’s December it was inevitable that there would be some Christmas music coming. Random Acts of Vinyl have put out a four track 10″ EP with their bands each penning an original festive tune. We’ve got the audio of Fire Eyes‘ O Falling Snow below and the EP also has contributions from Beat Hotel, The Delta Bell and Palm Springs. Details of how you can get hold of the EP will be in the next blog we put up later this evening.

New Music – Fickle Friends, The Delta Bell, Winston & Goldstein, Dark Horses, Royal Blood

Another batch of new Brighton music for you all, including three singles that are out today:

The first of today’s new singles is PLAY by Fickle Friends, the follow up to Swim – the first new track of 2014 that we posted. PLAY is another slice of fantastic sunshine pop. The band are launching the single with a gig at the Shacklewell arms on 9th April before they head on tour in April / May, playing a hometown gig as part of the Great Escape at the Green Door Store on 9th May.

Wasted by The Delta Bell is the new country tinged 7″ released today on Random Acts of Vinyl. Kate Gerrard’s band play at the Hope tomorrow night supporting Flooding Rivers, and you can buy the single now from the Random Acts of Vinyl website.

You probably wouldn’t guess that the ice-cool electro of Ode to a Massive Obsession was made by an ex-member of Kins, but Winston & Goldstein is the new project by Jacqueline who in a previous musical life was responsible for keyboards and guitars. The track is the first video from the forthcoming album In The Eyes of the Other, due later this year.

Dark Horses are back with Live on Hunger, the first track from their second album. Hail Lucid State has been produced by Death in Vegas mainman Richard Fearless (who also produced their debut Black Music), and the album will be out later this year on Last Gang Records.

Finally, we have the new single from Royal Blood, also released today. Little Monster is packed with riffis and is available on download or limited 7″.
