Brightonsfinest Volume 2

Having created a sell-out on our first compilation release, Volume 2 has high expectations and a somewhat different ambition. Rather than a celebration of Brighton’s music, with the focus on acts with a close connection here, Brightonsfinest has decided to look further afield – to all of the great music that’s coming out of the UK right now, looking at the most exciting acts they’ve been playing on their radio show and featuring on the site.

This compilation is a great opportunity to sample some of the finest up-and-coming home-grown acts out there, a great taster for anyone wanting to discover new talent. It’s available from 24th November on high quality double-vinyl from our online shop as well as all good record shops, and this time round it will also be available as a digital download and stream. Get yourself a copy today and join Brightonsfinest in celebrating the British music scene: it’s really healthy right now and the more we recognise that, the stronger it becomes!

The cover artwork for Volume 2 features a photograph by well-known and much admired British photographer Martin Parr, from a series of photographs he took in the early 80s at Liverpool’s faded suburban seaside resort of New Brighton. Volumes 3 and 4 will also feature different images from this series, known as The Last Resort, further tying the series together.
