New Music – Moulettes, Self Help Group, Young Night, Adolescent, Us Baby Bear Bones, Kins, Beautiful Boy

Here’s another batch of new music for your listening pleasure. First up is a double dose of Moulettes, whose new album Constellations is out on 2nd June. In the past few days a video and a Champion Fever remix of Lady Vengeance from the album have appeared online:

Next we have a new video from The Self Help Group. The rather lovely The Bus is taken from their album Not Waving But Drowning which came out earlier this year:

Young Night are a band from Australia who pestered me for a while on twitter without giving me any indication that they were now Brighton based. It turns out that they moved to Brighton earlier this year (although their band Facebook page still says that they’re based in Brisbane). They’ve updated their twitter page though, and are giving a push for their summery guitar pop track Picasso:

Last week KLDSCP released Adolescent‘s new EP Golden Halls. We’ve featured a couple of the tracks before as they’ve appeared but now the whole four track EP is up on bandcamp, and it’s all rather lovely:

We posted about the new Us Baby Bear Bones EP at the weekend, and sadly missed the launch yesterday at the Green Door Store. If you want to get hold of the Ursari EP, you can buy it from their label Love Thy Neighbour’s bandcamp page:

Young Night aren’t the only Australians who’ve relocated to Brighton who have a new release out. Kins have new three track single out, headed up by album track Mockasin’s (their apostrophe, not mine) available as a free three track download from soundcloud:

Last but by no means least, this week also sees the release of the new Beautiful Boy double A side Home / Love Me More, out now on Raygun Records:

RIP Us Baby Bear Bones

It’s been a bit quiet from us for a little while, for which we apologise profusely. It’s all the Great Escape’s fault. As fun as it is, it does leave us with no spare time for three days, then knackered for a few days after that.

We’re back now though and unfortunately it’s with some sad news. Last week we got a press release saying that one of Brighton’s finest bands – Us Baby Bear Bones – were splitting up. They’re releasing a second and final EP, Ursari, which has been produced by Blood Red Shoes’ Simon Ansell which is coming out tomorrow on Love They Neighbour, limited to only a hundred copies, and also playing one final gig at the Green Door Store, with support from Hypnotized and Speak Galactic. Here’s the video for Only One from the EP:

Don’t be sad for too long though. Two of the band’s members are continuing as Psalm Springs, and their first track Get Out (Leave) is already out there, tucked away on Cupboard Music’s sampler cd that they gave away to those who made the early start on Record Store Day, which isn’t too difficult to find a stream of with a little bit of hunting. If Psalm Springs are even half the band that Us Baby Bear Bones were they’ll still outshine most of what Brighton has to offer so we look forward to hearing more from them.
