SEA MONSTERS 2: The Best of Brighton
Following last year’s fantastic celebration of Brighton’s musical underground. SEA MONSTERS is back, bigger and better than ever! Expanding by five extra bands and nearly 40 extra minutes Sea Monsters 2 presents the 23 most crucial bands in Brighton in 2012 across two intense CDs.
As always it was incredibly difficult to whittle the scene down to just 23 standout new artists. Across this comprehensive compilation you’ll get to hear the indie-pop perfection of Munich and Black Black Hills; the quirkiness of Restlesslist and Us Baby Bear Bones; the youthful exuberance of Tyrannosaurus Dead and Fear of Men; the electronic assault of DA-10 and The Physics House Band; the balls-out psychjamzzz of Negative Pegasus; and the heavier-than-thou dark-side of Sea Bastard and Plague Sermon; amongst many, many others. It’s an experimental set of music that switches genres more times in the space of two discs than even Madonna dared to, a real testament to the true depth and excitement of the Brighton scene in 2012.
