Brightonsfinest Radio Schedule: Mon 26th - Thur 1st Mar

Mon

Interview with AK/DK
So the rest of the country seems to have at last caught up with what Brighton has known for a while, as the phenomenal AK/DK have been creating more and more of a buzz recently. Back for a show at Patterns, in support of their latest album Patterns/Harmonics, it is sure to sell out and we are looking forward to chatting to Ed and Gee about all that has transpired recently.

Going Up With… Electric Six
Detroit band Electric Six exploded into the mainstream back in 2003, with their cult hits ‘Danger! High Voltage’ and ‘Gay Bar’, both mainstays of every indie and student disco of the time. Since then, they have released no fewer than 17 studio albums and are set for a sold out show at Concorde 2 at the start of March. We pin them down in our elevator, and fire some questions at them!

Tue

Interview with Ocean Wisdom
Yet another highlight of the Brighton scene, rapper Ocean Wisdom has enjoyed a meteoric rise to his career, being called, “The future of UK hip-hop” by the likes of Complex Magazine. His second album Wizville takes that potential and realises every inch of it – with collaborations with the likes of Method Man, Dizzee Rascal and Roots Manuva, he has confirmed his position amongst the leading lights of UK hip-hop.

Interview with Puma Blue
Jacob Allen, the man behind Puma Blue, is known for only writing his music in the early hours of the morning - so night time is the perfect time for us to chat to him on the show, before his show at The Hope & Ruin. We thought his debut EP Swum Baby was, “delicate and fragile lo-fi shoegaze with a hint of jazz”. Join us and get to know this very special artist a little bit more.

Wed

Interview with Mint Field
Bringing their shoegaze vibes all the way from Tijuana, Mint Field are about to drop their debut album Pasar de las Luces and we cannot wait. There is an intrinsically British feel to much of their music so far which, when combined with their Spanish lyrics, makes for a unique sound – and one we are looking forward to exploring more.

Interview with Screaming Females
New Jersey punks Screaming Females return with their latest album All At Once, their seventh in a series of sensational records. This time round, their sound is expanded and experimental – All At Once promises to be a sprawling double album that bounces between the surreal and the epic. One of the finest DIY bands in the world, this will be a fascinating chat.

Thu

Interview with Table Scraps
There is a lot to love about Birmingham garage punks Table Scraps, and those reasons will extend even further with the release of Autonomy. Unmissable for fans of IDLES and Fat White Family – Table Scraps are another exciting example of what is going on away from the mainstream. Check out the new album, and then check them out in interview next week!

BF Listeners Chart
Well, Elli Ingram ran away with the Brightonsfinest Listeners Chart with ‘Stone Cold’, on the chart where YOU decide what your favourite new track on our playlist is! Keep your eyes peeled on our playlist, and get voting! Will it be Gwenno, Suuns, Fickle Friends or Albert Hammond Jr? You choose!

Coming Soon

Superorganism
A truly exciting band, the eight members of Superorganism (who all live together in an East London house) have gathered a reputation for insane shows and have justified every inch of industry hype that surrounds them. While we prepare ourselves for their Haunt show, we catch up with them on the show.

Elli Ingram
A real home-grown talent, Elli Ingram has worked hard to get where she is today. Relentlessly touring the local Brighton scene, combining that graft with a natural-born ability, the end results have been stunning. Playing to 10,000 people at Glastonbury has become as natural to Ingram as it has to perform at a smaller venue like Patterns. She will be joining us too very soon!

Gwenno
Gwenno Saunders, formerly of The Pipettes, is one of the most interesting singers around and we are in for a triple treat in the coming weeks – with not just a new album in Le Kov, and not just a live show at Rialto Theatre but also an exclusive interview with us on the show!

Fickle Friends
It’s been a long time coming, but Fickle Friends’ debut album is finally nearly here! You Are Someone Else is set to confirm what we all know, that this Brighton band are one of the most exciting to emerge in recent years. With a major headliner show at Concorde 2 later this month too, it’s an exciting time to catch up with Natti and the gang.

Album of the Week



Public Access T.V. - Street Safari

The latest in a positive flood of excellent New York bands, Public Access T.V.'s sophomore album is a deepening claim to the band's unique identity. Having said that, there's flashes of Bowie and Talking Heads in there that make this a nod-filled extravaganza, and one that demands a tap of the foot.

Track of the Week


Superorganism - 'Reflections On The Screen'
Described as pop culture junkies, this eight-strong supergroup exploded onto the scene in a dizzying flash of wonky samples and tongue-in-cheek pop culture references. Their music puts the joy in enjoyable - we're thrilled to be welcoming them to the studio for a session while they're in town on 9th May.
