New Brighton Music

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

Brighton Music Blog 2018 Highlights

I’m not a fan of end of year lists. There’s the forced ranking of things, introducing subjectivity and pitting people against each other. There’s the fact that you might not remember things from the start of the year as well as recent tracks, or that some songs sounded great in the sunshine but right now it’s cold, wet and miserable. So instead, here’s a few tracks from 2018 that are highlights for us. No particular order, no claims that one is better than another, just what we think are a bunch of great tunes. There’s a few maybe more obvious bands missing (naming no names) – it’s been a brilliant year for Brighton Music – but some of the bands you might be thinking of haven’t been in touch, or haven’t got back to us when we’ve been in touch. Given how successful they’ve been they obviously haven’t needed a blog like us, and it’s not like we’ve been short of great music to post this year. Anyway, we’ve tried to post bandcamp links where we can, so if you like what you can hear, you can click through and buy from the site where the biggest proportion of the price goes back to the artist:

Fröst – Trail Away

The Fiction Aisle – Gone Today

Yumi & The Weather – Hustle

La Lune – He Breathes Colour When I Feel So Grey

Crayola Lectern – Secrets

Ex-Display Model – Autopilot

Blood Red Shoes – God Complex

LibraLibra – Animali

Projector – Break Your Own Heart

Anneka – Burst

The Go! Team – Chico’s Radical Decade

Moon Panda – Gun

Wax Machine – Time

Cate Ferris – Rise

Orchards – Double Vision

 Our Girl – In My Head

Inwards – When She Flashes Her Smile On Me

Steve Mason – Walking Away From Love

We’re playing catchup again this week after our holidays last week, and it seems that we missed a flurry of activity, so once again we’re going to keep things pretty brief, limiting our words to just what you need to know about the tracks.

The biggest news this week is that Blood Red Shoes have a new single. It’s called God Complex and is out now on Jazz Life:

After a couple of weeks of live posts, here’s our second new music post of the year.

Our first track this week is the new release from Adal called Synthesize. Tight eighties synths provide the perfect accompaniment to vocals provided by Alexanderson from Cardiff’s XY&O.

New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s new music post, two weeks after our last one – we were out of the country last week though, so we’re playing catchup a bit now. Our first tune this week is from Brighton supergroup Alien Stadium, made up of Steve Mason and Primal Scream‘s Martin Duffy. Their first release is a track called This One’s for the Humans, a lolloping almost-baggy almost-bluesy number which is taken from a mini LP called Livin’ in Elizabethan Times which gets released on 1st December. Have a dig around for the version that’s up on Spotify which clocks in over six minutes long and gets a much more psychedelic groove on.

November / December gig preview

For this month’s gig preview post we’re actually going to cover November and December. Generally there aren’t as many gigs in December, and we’re normally distracted with end of year stuff on the blog, so it’s seems appropriate to cover two months in one post now. Continue reading

July Brighton Gig Previews

We don’t do gig previews that much any more, mainly because we don’t get out nearly as much as we used to. We’ve got a big feature coming, but it’s taking a little while to get together, so to tide you over until then, here’s a few gigs that have caught our eye over the coming month:

Tomorrow night (Monday 10th July), Bleeding Hearts almost celebrate their fifteen birthday at The Rialto. As they put it: “We’d planned to host an alldayer only to find out that our adversaries had used their telemeters to evil effect. Due to dimentional complications we will not be celebrating the actual anniversary but instead our inability to celebrate our longeveness.”. On the bill are Garden Centre, Academy of the Sun, Gary Goodman and Sam Cutting. Continue reading
