February Gig Previews

27024292_1758823704148932_4865391248267470806_oSo, that’s January pretty much done with, which means it’s time for our February gig roundup. First up is an all dayer at the Green Door Store this Saturday from our friends over at Brighton Noise. Thanks to the Facebook event saying “in no particular order” we can’t quite work out who’s headlining out of Dirty White Fever, Breathe Panel, Garden Centre, Penelope Isles (playing songs from their individual solo projects), Leatherhead, Tilt, Merlin Tonto, Perch and the National Intelligence Agency, but we trust their judgement and it’ll be great whatever you get to see.

The big gig for us this month is the Go! Team, who have had the venue upgraded for the hometown show of their tour to the Concorde 2 (so please don’t go to the Haunt!). They’re supported on 11th February by Neon Saints Brass Band (who are also on their great new album) and Berlin’s Gurr.


The following night (Monday 12th February) promoters Hot Wax and Tigmus to put on this months Locals night at the Prince Albert. This time round that’ve got Hanya, Circe, Tuval and Olivia May Green on the bill. Then on Wednesday 14th why not take your valentine to Rixson Music’s Support Your Local Girl Gang night at Sticky Mike’s where CLT DRP are headlining.

As well the Go! Team, another of one of Brighton’s heavy hitting bands are playing – If you’re lucky you will have got yourself a ticket to see British Sea Power play at the Concorde 2 on 20th. Unsurprsingly, It’s sold out.

Finally, our last recommendation is the Strange Cages single launch on February 23rd, where they’re playing CBGBs night at the Green Door Store to celebrate the launch of their next release Hypothalamus Blues, with support from Guru and a DJ set from Wytches.


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

New Brighton Music

Here’s this week’s dose of new music for you all, slightly bigger than normal because I didn’t get around to posting last week. Our first track is the new one from Sea Bed called Moving Ghosts, which gets a release on Four Thieves records on vinyl on 11th March (which you can pre-order here):

Miamigo have shared some more 80s-tastic synthpop. This is Pot Luck:

Thyla have followed up last year’s Us and Them with Car Crash, an ambitious, angular slice of guitar pop:

Great Pagans premiered their new single over on Steregum last week. The band are releasing  Call of the Wild on Anti-Ghost Moon Ray on 11th March.

Tuska are the third band we’re writing about who are releasing their new single on 11th March. Their new track is called We Could Be Alone, and is a must-listen for fans of Tame Impala. If you like what you hear you can catch the band at Sticky Mike’s on 4th March:

Landslide is the debut single from Loa Loa, a raucous three minute garage cacophony committed to tape at Brighton Electric

Changing tack completely, this is White Peaks, with their new dreamy electronic pop song Easy:

Nicolas and the Saints are releasing their album Years in the Making at the end of the month (or at the start of the month if you pledged to their indiegogo campaign). The album was literally years in the making, with recording taking place over seven years. Here’s the album’s penultimate track Been Hurt Before:

Warsaw Radio are returning to their Irish roots for the launch of their new single Down by the Sea. Their mini tour starts this time next week and takes in Dundalk, Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway:




Electric Greyhound make woozy electronica, and have just posted up their latest track Flounder:

Finishing up this post we have three videos – Just posted today was GAPS video for their track A World Away, from their album In Around The Moments:

Next we have the fuzzy shoegaze of Tuval‘s In My Head:

And finally we have a hip hop track sung in Albanian. This is Ledio, Te Lutem! by Via Tirana:



New Brighton Music

Here’s our first new music blog post in a little bit. Thankfully things have been quite quiet in the last week or so – I guess all the bands are off at festivals rather than uploading new tunes.

Anyway, our first track is the first new proper release from Dog in the Snow since last year’s Africa single. Proxy is taken from their new EP Uncanny Valley, which comes out on Love Thy Neighbour in October, and has it’s launch party at the Hope & Ruin on 14th October:
