March Top Ten

Yes, yes. We’re almost a week into April. But we’ve had Easter in the way, and we were overwhelmed with new music last month. Here’s our top picks:

1. The Go! TeamWhat D’You Say?

Highlight of the month for us was the brand new Go! Team album The Scene Between. If you haven’t gone out and bought it yet what are you waiting for?

2. IYESGlow

Glow was originally meant to be out at the tail end of last year, but being pushed back a few months in record company schedules makes it no less majestic.

3. RockerswitchShow Me

Rockerswitch’s debut starts off quite lazy and gradually gets more and more spaced out. Great stuff.

4. Mount BankEverything is Glass

We love everything on Mount Bank’s Island Life EP but opener Everything is Glass is our favourite with it’s bright synth strings and piano motif.

5. TigercubHold On

Showing a more mature side than seen on their previous releases, Tigercub’s latest demo was so good it got picked up by NME and streamed on their website.

6. Foreign SkinEnemy

A favourite from their live sets, Foreign Skin has finally shared the beguiling Enemy on their Soundcloud stream

7. AmbassadeursCan’t See You

Can’t See You is the first taster from Ambassadeurs next EP. On the strength of what we’ve heard from Ambassaders in the past it’s almost inevitable that we’ll be featuring other tracks from the EP in coming months.

8. Sea BedHaunted

Sea Bed have shared a couple of tracks from their upcoming Rosso EP which drops next week. Our pick of the two is the almost garagey Haunted.

9. GAPS – All Me All You

GAPS debut album comes out in May. As well as featuring a couple of their older singles it also includes All Me All You, the first new track taken from “In, Around The Moments”

10. Fools EmpireThe Professionals

Last up is The Professionals, the first of three singles coming out in a sequence from Fools Empire. Can’t wait for the other two.

The Go! Team – The Scene Between

The Go! Team‘s brand new album is out today! The Scene Between, the band’s first record in about four years, is out in the shops (and the usual digital places) right now. As mentioned in our most recent new music roundup, last week Buzzfeed where premiering a whole week of videos of tracks from the album, kicking off with What D’You Say? (which we also posted). They followed up with videos for Blowtorch, Did You Know?, Catch Me On The Rebound, and Reason Left To Destroy all of which we’ve rounded up for you below.

If you like what you hear (and let’s face it, it’s very easy to enjoy The Go! Team), then you can catch the band live at The Haunt on 4th July.

New Brighton Music – The Go! Team, Self Help Group, Sea Bed, Fools Empire

Here’s this week’s new music roundup which starts off with a video and a whole heap of news about The Go! Team.

These days people are more likely to visit Buzzfeed than more traditional media, so with that in mind, The Go! Team have premiered a new video for What D’you Say? there. It’s not just the one video either – every day this week they’re putting up a new video. What you won’t find over on Buzzfeed is news about the band’s tour, kicking off on 5th June in Bristol and finishing up with a hometown gig at The Haunt on 4th July. Tickets go on sale this friday.

Next up is a track called Caves, by a new band called Sea Bed. Sea Bed are made up of Lizzie Massey and Jim Corbin, who used to be in Tiny Dragons. They’ve put the rock side of their character to bed with their old band name and have embraced dance music still layered with live instruments to give the sound a more rounded feel. Caves is taken from the Rosso EP, out on 6th April on DEPF records.

Next up is a new remix of a Self Help Group track. The original version of Prisoner appeared on their album Not Waving but Drowning, but you can grab a free download of the Small World Orchestra remix over on bandcamp:

Fools Empire are a new Brighton Based five piece playing soaring rock. The Professionals came out last friday and is the first of a set of three singles that the band are putting out this year.

New Music

Another week, another new music roundup. Ten tunes for you this week, two of which have been posted before, but are worthy of another mention, but we’ll tell you about them when we get to them.

Our first track is by The Go! Team, whose new album The Scene Between comes out at the end of the month. If you pre-orer the album you’ll get instant downloads of What D’You Say, which you can hear below, Blowtorch, which we featured last month, and the album’s title track.

Glass City Vice‘s new single Landslide comes out next Monday. If we’d have been a bit more on the ball on following up from the mail we had from their people we’d have been able to tell you about their gig supporting Dry The River at the Concorde on tuesday night, but at least we weren’t so slack that we missed telling you about their headline gig at The Hope & Ruin on 15th April.

Black Honey have put up new track Madonna which is coming out on a double A side single on 6th April. It’ll be backed with another new track Spinning Wheel and will be released on Duly Noted Records.

Black Fields new single Monster came out last friday. It’s currently available to download for free on their bandcamp page.

David Bennett sent us the video for his new track Atoms the other day, which shows David playing all of the instruments, as he does on the track itself.

Mustang Japan is taken from High Tyde‘s upcoming Fuzz EP, out next Monday. The band are off on tour later this month, starting off with a couple of dates at the Haunt where they’re support Peace at their sold out nights.

Luo and Monoman are a couple of Brighton artists who have tracks featured on a new compilation put out by Brighton label SmallPrint. We’ve featured one of Luo’s tracks here (they have two tracks on the compilation) but you can download Eidolon and the rest of the album for free via the SmallPrint facebook page.

Mount Bank‘s Island Life EP is also out next Monday. We posted up Everything Is Glass from it a few weeks back, and here’s another track – Summer Camp (Anenon Remix). You can pre-order the EP on iTunes here.

Finally the two tracks that we’ve featured before – We first wrote about Glow by IYES back in November last year, when it was scheduled for a released in December. Things got pushed back, but it’s finally out now. You can watch the video below or buy the track on iTunes here.

Last, and by no means least since it headed up February Top Ten, is the video for Demob Happy‘s Young & Numb. When we posted the track last month only the audio stream was available, but since there’s now video too it’s worth re-sharing.
