Welcome to what’s probably our last New Music post of the year. We’re going to go into hibernation mode soon, with maybe just a post with some of our favourite tracks, and then we’ll be back in the new year, bright eyed and bushy tailed. But for now, it’s business as usual:
We’re running a bit late because we’ve been away for a few days – apologies for the break in service. It feels like only a few weeks ago since we dedicated a New Music Post to new releases from two Fujiya & Miyagi offshoots, but here we are again, kicking off this week’s post with another two:
We’re playing catchup this week, after a gig preview last week and the Great Escape the week before that there’s a lot of ground to cover. We’ll also be introducing a simplification in how we present the tracks too, so that hopefully we don’t get so behind in future.
It’s been a few weeks since out last post for which we can only apologise – we had a holiday, then jet lag, and only now we’re back on the blogging wagon. In that time both The Magic Gang and Fickle Friends have released their albums, and it seems to have been one of the busiest periods for other bands to share new music. We’d have no hope of catching up if we wrote up our new music post the way we normally do, with us much info as we have and details of any upcoming gigs, so for this post we’re going to keep things brief – just names of bands and tracks – and hopefully by next week we can get back to normal.
It’s almost that time again – the highlight in the Brighton musical calendar, when anywhere you can fit in a PA becomes venue for a few days. Yes, this coming weekend is The Great Escape Festival. We haven’t finalised our plans, but we’re probably going to end up seeing more Alt Escape stuff than proper Great Escape stuff, because that’s where the bulk of the local bands are playing. If you haven’t got yourself a ticket yet then you can get into all the Alt Escape stuff without one anyway.
