New Brighton Albums

We haven’t done a new album post in a few months, so it’s about time we stopped and looked at what local albums have come out recently, and what’s coming up.

Last night, Time for T launched their debut album Hoping, Something, Anything at the Rialto. There’s a new single, Ronda, which you can see below:

The Dials new album That Was The Future comes out on 13th October, but will be sent out early if you pre-order from the band’s website. You haven’t missed the launch gig for this album yet though – that’s on 6th October at The Hope & Ruin.

Ghost on the Stairs is the new album by Meemo Comma, the latest alias of Lara Rix-Martin who runs record label Objects Ltd, which puts out electronic music from an exclusively women and non-binary roster. The album has been out a couple of weeks already and if you want to hear more of her brand of ambitious electronica, you can catch her headlining Spectrum at the Basement on 30th September.

The New Faith launch their new album Me On You with a gig at the Brighthelm Centre on 13th October. As well as entrance, your ticket will also provide you with two beers, which is certainly something that appeals to us. The album includes previous singles Too Sad to be Young and Fritter Away:

AKDKThe new AK/DK album comes out on October 20th. It’s called Patterns Harmonics, and includes Morphology, the track we included in our most recent New Music post last week. You can pre-order the album now via their bandcamp page on digital download, cd or lush looking white vinyl. The band are off on a mini-tour to launch it at the end of October, kicking off with a gig at the Green Door Store on 24th. AK/DK are arguably one of Brighton’s best live bands – you’ll definitely see us down the front of this gig.

Fujiya

Next, news of a new old album. Fujiya & Miyagi‘s breakthrough album Transparent Things originally came out in 2006, but never got a vinyl release at the time. Unthinkable now, but a lot has changed in the last eleven years. The reissue (available to preorder here) is coming out on transparent vinyl, obviously, as well as on cd and download. If you bought it first time around and are wondering what’s in the reissue for you, it also comes with Reeboks in Heaven, which was a bonus track on the US release, and Different Blades from the Same Pair of Scissors, a running mix made for Nike in 2011. To celebrate, the band are playing a handful of gigs, including one at Patterns on 7th December. The first non-festival gig we saw Fujiya & Miyagi at was at Patterns, when it was still Audio, which kicked off our long standing love of the band, so this should be pretty special.

Kev Minney launched his album Stories of the Sky with a gig at Café Plenty last Saturday, after releasing his album the day before. You can pick up his album via his website, or the usual digital outlets.

New Brighton Music

It’s only been 10 days since our last New Music post, but somehow it feels like we’ve got a month’s worth of new music to share. Things are normally quiet in August, but the last couple of weeks have gone crazy. First up is the new single from Other States entitled Come Back To Me. Other States headline Brighton Electric on 19th September.

Dog in the Snow have just put out the second single from their upcoming album Consume Me. The single is called Child and was out last Friday. We’ve got a Brighton Rocks lined up with Helen coming up sometime soon, so watch this space.

Projector are releasing their new AA side single Love / Dreaming on cassette on 15th May with a launch party at the Green Door Store.

Resonators new single Right Time came out last Friday on Wah Wah 45s. Alongside the normal download options, there’s also a super-limited 7″ with the remixes, but hurry if you want one because there’s only five left on bandcamp at the time of writing:

The New Faith release their new single tomorrow. It’s called Fritter Away and is taken from their upcoming album Me On You, which is being launched at the Brightelm Centre on 13th October.

Battery Operated Orchestra are back with a new electro banger of a single, the title track from last year’s album Radiation. It’ll be available as a free download for a week from 12th September via the band’s website.

We missed the launch date (and launch gig) for Jenna Bennett Brighton themed single City By The Sea, although in our defence, we didn’t actually hear about it until after the event. You can watch the video here, and listen to the audio through the usual outlets:

We missed the launch of Luna Blue‘s Nightjar EP too, which was last Friday at the Hope & Ruin. Here’s the lead track from their EP which is out now:

Next we have the new one from Kev Minney, Like I Always. It’s taken from his upcoming album Stories of the Sky, which launches at Café Plenty on 9th September.

Finally, here’s Haze by Grapefruit Moon. Their debut album is due for release in November but you can catch them live before that on 5th September at The Joker.

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

The New Faith at the Prince Albert gallery

On Monday night the New Faith launched their new single Too Sad To Be Young at the Prince Albert. When we chatted to them for our recent Brighton Rocks feature they invited us along and we were more than happy to accept. We brought along our camera, because that’s what we do (albeit nearly as often as we used to) – click on the pics to view large: Continue reading

New Brighton Music

Another week, another new music roundup. We’re starting off this week  with news of the new EP from Momotaro, who have been fairly quiet for the last few years. The new EP is called Places and is out on 5th May, and the first track from it that they’ve shared is the lovely Gone Days.

New Brighton Music

Here we are with our first New Music post of 2016. A fair few of the tracks actually came out last year, but we were a bit distracted in December with our Top ten posts. Talking of our Top ten, you might ask why we’re featuring our number one Fujiya & Miyagi again. Well, EP2 is about to get a US release, and the band put out a video for Extended Dance Mix directed by Bob Brown from Shrag:
