New Brighton Music

It’s been a funny few weeks since I last posted – Coronavirus has changed the world as we know it. Festival season has been decimated – Glastonbury has been cancelled this year, as has Brighton’s own Great Escape. I doubt I’ll be doing my monthly gig previews post for a bit. But there is still music to listen to, so here’s what’s new including a few Lockdown themed songs:

Knightstown / Rewire (from Rewire EP)
Man Like Malcolm / Don’t Cry For Me
Ruby Dutch / Listen To The Rain
The Ducks / Disco Fox (from Up To No Good album)
Ahsoka / Creature of the Deep
Ralph TV / Making Movements (from Cabin Fever Dreams LP)
Chxrlotte / Don’t Save Me
Mariah Casals / For You
Night House / To Be With (from Everyone is Watching from Afar LP)
Heights / Let Down
CLT DRP / Worth It (AKDK remix)
Samuel / Karma

Kate Gerrard and Beth Chesser from The Delta Bell / May You Bring Light // The New And The Old

Yumi & The Weather / Struggling

LibraLibra / Panic Buy

Sit Down / Quarantine

Artist: My Life Story
Track Name: Taking on the World

Brighton Music Blog 2018 Highlights

I’m not a fan of end of year lists. There’s the forced ranking of things, introducing subjectivity and pitting people against each other. There’s the fact that you might not remember things from the start of the year as well as recent tracks, or that some songs sounded great in the sunshine but right now it’s cold, wet and miserable. So instead, here’s a few tracks from 2018 that are highlights for us. No particular order, no claims that one is better than another, just what we think are a bunch of great tunes. There’s a few maybe more obvious bands missing (naming no names) – it’s been a brilliant year for Brighton Music – but some of the bands you might be thinking of haven’t been in touch, or haven’t got back to us when we’ve been in touch. Given how successful they’ve been they obviously haven’t needed a blog like us, and it’s not like we’ve been short of great music to post this year. Anyway, we’ve tried to post bandcamp links where we can, so if you like what you can hear, you can click through and buy from the site where the biggest proportion of the price goes back to the artist: Continue reading
