Brightonsfinest Radio Schedule: Mon 16th-Thur 19th Oct

Mon
Interview with Paul Jonas (Tru Thoughts)

Brighton-born independent record label Tru Thoughts turns 18 this year and, to celebrate, are playing packed shows at Brighton Dome and the Roundhouse in London. One of the most influential and successful indie labels, responsible for discovering the likes of Bonobo and Jon Kennedy, they have certainly left their mark on the music world already and we are delighted to be joined by co-founder Paul Jonas who will tell us all about it!

Interview with Gang Of Youths

Australian indie-rockers Gang of Youths may not yet be as much of a household name here as they are back home, but their latest album Go Farther in Lightness could very well be the album to change all that. We described it in our review as an “astonishing journey of an album”, and we have fallen further in love with it on every listen. Join us as we chat to the band.

Tue
Interview with YOWL

The state of the world has lit a fire under the music scene, and Peckham band YOWL are set to join the ranks of the disaffected with their dark, intense garage rock. New single ‘Darkroom’ is a brooding, menacing new addition to their catalogue - and we are joined by the band before their must-see show at The Joker.

Interview with Francobollo

Nobody who saw Swedish indie-rock band Francobollo on either their support of The Big Moon or at The Great Escape is likely to forget them. Bags of energy, full of mischief, but backing it up with tunes to match as their debut album Long Live Life showed. The band drop in to chat about their year, just in time for another show at The Hope & Ruin.

Wed
Interview with Knuckle Puck

Knuckle Puck have been quietly building a great reputation on the pop-punk scene since their arrival in 2010, and the Chicago band are just about to drop their second album Shapeshifter. Regularly on ‘bands you should know’ lists, this will be a great chance to see why their names resound across the underground scene.

 

Interview with HAKE

Brighton may be awash with psych-garage rock bands, but HAKE are one of those that stand out from the crowd. Just before their free show at the Green Door Store, they will be chatting to us about life on the local scene and all their latest news.

 

Thu
Interview & session with INHEAVEN

Top of most ‘hype’ lists for a few years, INHEAVEN finally delivered on the promise with their self-titled debut album last month. Instantly becoming a firm favourite up and down the country, the band will be playing an exclusive session with us on the show.

 

Interview with Jane Weaver

Modern Kosmology, Weaver’s eighth album, is a captivating and bewitching record of modern psychedelic music which straddles multiple genres. Live, she is just as sensational and both aspects have been gaining rave reviews this summer. We catch her before what is sure to be a stunning gig at The Haunt.

 

 

Coming Soon On Brightonsfinest Radio Show



Bill MacKay & Ryley Walker
Hailing from Chicago, these two guitarists first teamed up in 2015 with their recorded-as-live album Land of Plenty and are at it again with this month’s long-awaited SpiderBeetleBee. A perfect combination, we will be chatting to Bill and Ryley very soon.

Donae’o
Donae’o, the multi-talented rapper, MC and singer from London, will be in Brighton supporting Dizzee Rascal on a huge show at Brighton Dome. Having recorded with Giggs and Lethal Bizzle, as well as recently being part of the ‘Artists For Grenfell' charity single, we will be catching up with one of the scene’s biggest talents.

Phoebe Bridgers
It’s been a busy few months for the LA singer, and her current album Stranger in the Alps has proven to be one of our favourite albums of 2017 so far. We cannot wait to catch her at the Unitarian Church at the end of month, and are delighted to have her on the show!

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
With a major UK tour and Brighton Dome date, plus a new album due out in January, it’s like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club have never been away. The men in black will be on the show soon, telling us all their news and what they’ve been up to over the last few years.

Highlights

Album of the Week


St. Vincent – Masseduction
St. Vincent – Masseduction

This fifth solo album from Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, is probably her most hotly anticipated yet. Her last, self-titled, album came as a bit of a breakthrough for her, although that term ‘breakthrough’ tends to disregard the build-up. After the St. Vincent album came out in 2014 she was able to head out on a massive world tour, playing more dates in larger venues than ever before, but this wouldn’t have been possible without the profile-raising albums that proceeded it...

Track of the Week


Courtney Barnett + Kurt Vile - 'Let It Go'
If ever you wanted to pick two artists that sum up everything that Brightonsfinest loves, it’s Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile. Despite hailing from opposite sides of the world, they both embody the same spirit of dreamy indie-rock and their collaboration has the spirit of two old friends in a cool bar at 2am. Ever since the project was announced we have been on tenterhooks, and now it’s here it is everything we hoped for.


Preview of the Week


Declan McKenna Declan McKenna
Concorde 2 – Friday 20th October
Unfathomably, it’s been over two years since Declan McKenna came to the public attention by winning the Glastonbury Festival Emerging Talent Competition in 2015 and releasing his debut single ‘Brazil’. Since then, he’s toured extensively around the world, including huge shows in the States at Lollapalooza and Coachella; supported Blossoms around the UK and released his debut album What Do You Think About the Car? It's his first ever tour and it’s sure to be great...
