Los Angeles singer-songwriter Cornelia Murr announces her debut album 'Lake Tear of the Clouds' out July 13 via Autumn Tone. Murr also shared the album's first single "Man on My Mind" with a video directed by Charlotte Hornsby and Jesse Ruutila. Watch above.
 
Working with producer Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Murr conjures a hazy blend of folk and cosmic soul music, her voice floating over ghostly soundscapes that bring to mind the fantasias of Broadcast, Stereolab's most pastoral moments, and the spooky romance of Beach House. 
 
Recorded primarily at Palomino Sound, the record showcases Murr on vocals, Omnichord, mellotron, pocket piano, electric/acoustic guitars, whistles, and percussion. She's accompanied by contributions from James; piano and keys by Bo Koster of My Morning Jacket; Lola Kirke on vocals; Naomi Greene on vocals and electric harp. Bassist Shane McKillop and drummer Justin Flint, both of Amo Amo, comprise the rhythm section. 
 
Murr has long kept her songs close - shielding them from "roommates and lovers" - but Lake Tear of the Clouds represents her desire to no longer hide herself or her music away. Both intimate and psychedelic, the album explores womanhood and the personal revelations that accompany maturing into oneself. "I've spent so long/In a silent space scream/Now I've forgotten how it feels/To know someone's listening," Murr sings on "Billions." But Lake Tear of the Clouds presents Murr's voice as one well worth hearing.

PROTOMARTYR 'CONSOLATION EP' OUT 15TH JUNE 2018 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

Protomartyr 'Consolation EP'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Protomartyr announce Consolation E.P., which they recorded in part with friend Kelley Deal and will be released June 15th via Domino. Watch the Yoonha Park (‘Don't Go To Anacita’ director) directed video, above.

Two of the four songs feature Deal on vocals alongside singer Joe Casey, including ‘Wheel of Fortune’, the EP was recorded by Deal's R.Ring bandmate Mike Montgomery.

Joe Casey and Kelley Deal had this to say of the collaboration and EP:

“Early 2017 proved to be a productive time for the band. We were writing songs right up to recording Relatives In Descent and wanted to keep that momentum going right after. Making 2015's split single "A Half Of Seven" with R. Ring was one of our favorite recording experiences, so the decision to head down to Dayton, Kentucky and spend a weekend in May recording the four songs that became the Consolation E.P. was an easy one.” Joe Casey

“For Mike and I, working on this EP with Protomartyr was a re-kindling of the tender spark that was struck upon our first encounter with them years ago in Texas. They were graciously tolerant and receptive to my production ideas on the songs and the project quickly grew beyond our private orb. We have cello from Lori Goldston, viola from Jocelyn Hach and even bass clarinet from Evan Ziporyn, and I do some singing with Joe. There's a lot of trust involved when an artist places their songs in your hands, and we were very mindful of that while intentionally trying to take the songs in new directions. Candyland in Dayton, KY is home-base for R.Ring recording, and it's close enough that the Proto-men could make it down to lay the tracks down. This is the second project like this we've done with them, so we're ready to flip the tables and have them produce and record some of our songs!” Kelley Deal

TIRZAH 'DEVOTION' OUT 10TH AUGUST 2018 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN
Tirzah 'Devotion'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Devotion is the hugely anticipated debut album from one of London's most exciting underground talents, Tirzah out on the 10th August 2018 via Domino Records. The first track taken from Devotion comes in the form of ‘Gladly’, along with avideo directed by Hannah Perry, watch above.

Written and produced in collaboration with long-time friend and collaborator Micachu, Devotion's hallmarks are rooted in a fresh, raw emotion and feeling.

The Essex-born performer has been at the centre of the vital post-grime and UK garage sound of London for the better half of a decade but it’s only now that her work has come to full fruition, delivering what feels like a landmark debut LP.

Songs about the complexity and conflict of a very human, very confusing feeling come through in listless lines like “I thought that I would call you but I never could do it, while a faltering bass line carries it through a tumbledown assemblage of samples and vocal cutups. Track titles like ‘Gladly,’ ‘Guilty’ and ‘Reach’ reveal their emotional tone with a single word, while the deconstructed beats underscore the brittle nature of desire and romance. It is on tracks such as ‘Go Now’ where you can really hear the soul and gospel influences of Tirzah’s surprising inspirations in Al Green, Barry White and D'Angelo. There’s an understatement, though, a vulnerability that is unique to her own songwriting, where a simple four syllables, like “I want your arms, can speak volumes on loss and longing.

Devotion is very much a journey, positioning Tirzah as a unique contemporary soul voice. It’s a deeply personal hallucination of British RnB at its best, very much its own peculiar construction, built on the sad streets and gloomy days of a forever breaking heart.

Dirty Projectors announce the new album ‘Lamp Lit Prose,’ out 13th July 2018 via Domino Records. Watch the video for 'Break-Thru' above. 

Produced by Dave Longstreth at his studio Ivo Shandor in Los Angeles, the new album features guest appearances from Syd, Empress Of, Amber Mark, Haim, Rostam, Robin Pecknold, and Dear Nora, as well as longtime DPs’ rhythm section Nat Baldwin and Mike Johnson. 

‘Lamp Lit Prose’ arrives just over a year after 2017’s self-titled ‘Dirty Projectors.’  Here Longstreth’s band returns with a new album that is the yang to the yin of the 2017 effort.  The songs signal a page turned for Longstreth: hope instead of heartbreak, a restorative balance.  Guitars have returned to the Dirty Projectors’ world, intricate vocal harmony too.  ‘Lamp Lit Prose’ is a recommitment to the sounds and ideals of Dirty Projectors, embracing the band’s trademarks while pushing forward the sonic envelope.

Longstreth will be joined on the road by Baldwin (bass) and Johnson (drums) as well as three new band members: Felicia Douglass (percussion/vocals), Maia Friedman (guitar/vocals) and Kristin Slipp (keyboards, vocals).

Flasher 'Constant Image'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Washington, DC trio Flasher announce their debut album, Constant Image, which will be released June 8th via Domino. They've also shared a new single and video, ‘Pressure’. Watch above.

Recorded in 2017 at Rare Book Room in Brooklyn, NY, Constant Image was produced by Nicolas Vernhes (Animal Collective, Deerhunter, War On Drugs) and crackles with invention. This isn’t the sound of a band finding their feet, it’s the rare sound of three people – Taylor Mulitz on guitar, bassist Daniel Saperstein and drummer Emma Baker - who know exactly what they want to achieve from the start.

From their hometown of Washington, DC, with its rich history of idiosyncratic underground music, Flasher has emerged at the forefront of a vibrant musical present. The Sister Polygon label (which Mulitz helps run with former bandmates Priests) is a vital element in this moment of local cultivation and political confrontation. With their new LP, Flasher is helping to define a new generation of music in the city set apart from Dischord or any other storied DC past. 

Says the band on ‘Pressure’ and its’ video:

“’Pressure’ is a song that treads the line between queer delight and delirium, and crushing isolation and survival. The video for ‘Pressure’, made in collaboration with Weird Life films and featuring designer and Chicago based artist An Authentic Skidmark, is a compliment to the paradox of the song itself and an invitation to that world in between.”

Oly Ralfe embarks on a new solo journey. Notes From Another Sea, Ralfe's debut solo instrumental piano album will be released via Ghost Ship Records on the 13th April 2018. Watch 'On My Train' above. 

Oxford-based Oly Ralfe, who has made albums as Ralfe Band since 2005, as an ode of his love of the instrument, Notes From Another Sea is Oly’s first album based entirely around the piano. The album was recorded on several different pianos, recording on a Yamaha upright at Strawhouse Studios in Oxford, an old Steinweg grand at Visconti Studio in London, and in his home studio a Eavestaff mini piano. 

Ralfe on 'Notes From Another Sea':

“A lot of the music I love is stripped back to just one or two instruments. I’ve always wanted to create an album with more space, with an intimate atmosphere. At first it felt a risky undertaking, but I was surprised by how natural the process became. It’s been great to form a clear simple voice through the power of a composition, the moment of the performance and the atmosphere captured in recording it.”

Oly is known for being the principal member and songwriter of Ralfe Band, releasing three studio albums, Swords (Skint), Attic Thieves (Loose), and Son Be Wise (Highline). He also composed the score to the feature film Bunny and the Bull (Warp Films / Film 4), directed by Paul King (Paddington), which was released as a soundtrack album.

******** are re-releasing their first and final record The Drink on January 26th 2018, it will also mark the first time the album will be available as a physical release. Watch the video for Practical Song above.

********’s vision of the world is portrayed through “rudimentary bass and de(con)structive guitar” [Neil Cooper]. With hacked drum machines and preprogramed keyboards, they create compositions that complement their lyrical content, itself demonstrating a harsh and contemptuous reality. Recorded during a six-month period and originally released solely on YouTube, the album itself addresses new modes of working and an interest in musical versatility. Being unrehearsed, unknowing and capable of compromise are key to the ******** ethos, with an emphasis on changing the form of each song to suit different performative environments.
