The ever prolific Ty Segall has announced Mr. Face, a new EP that's due January 13 via Famous Class. If anything, this EP could be the missing link between Manipulator and Segall’s previous album, Sleeper. Whereas Sleeper was Segall at his most melancholy, Mr. Face takes its musical ideas and gives them bite and vigor. More and more electric guitar shows up as the EP progresses, but everything stays grounded in the acoustic guitar. On “Circles” and “Drug Mugger”, the acoustic plays a primarily rhythmic role, opening up space for Segall to lay some of his savage guitar solos.

The single builds upon the interest that was provoked by last year’s XXX’ and ‘Swarm’, two kraut-engined, lazer-guided garage rock missiles which introduced the band as a formidable new force of both brain and brawn.

Produced by Mark Rankin (Queens of the Stone Age, Bombay Bicycle Club), Chris Merrick Hughes (Tears For Fears, Adam And The Ants) and Oli Bayston (Toy, Boxed In), ‘To Die For’ continues to snap up disparate elements from the history of guitar music and forge them into something urgent and re-energised.

Emily Barker performed the Domino Publishing Sessions #3 accompanied by pianist Richard Causon at the October Gallery in Bloomsbury, London on 10th December 2014. Scroll down to watch Emily's performance. 

Emily Barker is an award-winning song-writer behind the theme to BBC TV crime drama Wallander.

Performing with The Red Clay Halo, the album Despite The Snow (2008), was recorded in live sessions in a 16th century barn in Norfolk. The album's opening track 'Nostalgia' was discovered by composer Martin Phipps and used as the theme tune to Wallander. 'Pause' from their next album Almanac (2011) provided the atmospheric theme to highly acclaimed BBC2 noir thriller The Shadow Line (starring Chiwetel Ejiofor and Christopher Eccleston). Emily Barker & The Red Clay Halo have toured extensively over the world and performed alongside Frank Turner at the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony. Working once again with Martin Phipps, Emily composed music for The Keeping Room directed by Daniel Barber. She then went on to compose her first full feature length soundtrack for forthcoming UK feature Hec McAdam directed by Jake Gavin (starring Peter Mullan). Emily is also a member of Vena Portae with British songwriter-theatre maker Dom Coyote and Stockholm based Ruben Engzell.

NEW PUBLISHING CATALOGUE - SLINT

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Spiderland' & 'Tweez'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

SLINT began in 1986. Before that, drummer Britt Walford, guitarist David Pajo, guitarist/vocalist Brian McMahan, and original bassist Ethan Buckler had played together in various bands within the tight-knit Louisville Punk scene. Brian and Britt formed their first band – Languid and Flaccid – in middle school, when Britt was just eleven. The older punks collapsed in fits of laughter when Britt and Brian’s dads carried in their amps and set them up on stage. Languid and Flaccid also featured Ned Oldham, later of the Anomoanon and older brother to Will Oldham a.k.a. Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy. Everyone in the band traded instruments from song to song. Brian and Britt also played in the beloved melodic hardcore band Squirrel Bait.

SLINT’s first show was during a service at the Unitarian Universalist church that Ethan’s parents attended. Even the people who held their ears told the band afterward how much they enjoyed it. In 1987, SLINT recorded their first album, Tweez, in Chicago with Steve Albini, who also produced albums for the Pixies, PJ Harvey, and Nirvana. Tweez was released on the minuscule Jennifer Hartman Records and Tapes label in 1989 and later reissued by Touch and Go Records in 1993. Ethan Buckler left the band after Tweez to pursue his own vision with his band King Kong and was replaced by Todd Brashear. In the fall of 1989, the members of SLINT scattered to various colleges throughout the Midwest. Britt and Brian wound up at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Before the school year was out, both were invited not to return. Then, over four days in August of 1990, SLINT recorded their second album, Spiderland, and the world would never again sound the same.

Produced by Brian Paulson at River North Recorders in Chicago and released by Touch and Go Records in April of 1991, the six songs on Spiderland methodically map a shadowy new continent of sound. The music is taut, menacing, and haunting – its structure built largely on absence and restraint, on the echoing space between the notes, but punctuated by sudden thrilling blasts of unfettered fury. It is a sound that no one had heard before and that no one will ever forget. The eerie, now-iconic black and white cover photo of the four band member’s heads breaking the surface of the water was taken by their friend Will Oldham. PJ Harvey was among the respondents to the band’s call for interested female vocalists on the back cover.

Spiderland spawned a whole new genre, frequently called Post-Rock, and came to be regarded as one of the most important and influential records of the past thirty years. The album was introduced to a wider audience when the song “Good Morning, Captain” appeared on the soundtrack for Larry Clark’s controversial 1995 film Kids. In 2010, Spiderland was enthroned in the popular and acclaimed 33 1/3 series of books about seminal record albums. SLINT broke up shortly before Spiderland was released. Band members went on to play in Tortoise, the Breeders, Palace, The For Carnation, Papa M, Evergreen, Interpol, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. In 2005, SLINT reunited to headline the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in Camber Sands, England, followed by a subsequent eighteen date tour. In 2007, the band performed Spiderland in its entirety for a series of European shows and at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. In late 2013, they co-headlined the final All Tomorrow’s Parties weekend at Camber Sands.

'I'm Not Dancing' EP & 'No Romance' EP

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

London's wonky pop singer Tirzah first came to listeners' attention with her bold single "I'm Not Dancing," a collaboration with Micachu & the Shapes' Mica Levi that blended garage beats and an odd recorder sample into something ear-catching. Tirzah and Levi became friends during their time at the Purcell School, where Tirzah was studying harp and Mica was studying violin, viola, and composition. The pair began working on their own music at that time, but Tirzah decided to pursue a career in fashion and Levi went on to form the Shapes. They restarted their collaboration in the 2010s with 2012's I'm Not Dancing EP, a distinctive blend of Levi's noise-meets-classical-meets-electronic production and Tirzah's down-to-earth vocals. The EP was released by Greco Roman, also home toDisclosure and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. The pair returned in April 2014 with the No Romance EP, a slightly more streamlined version of their unique electro-pop. Listen below.

*As taken from the statement on the Yep-Roc website.

It is with great sadness and eternal admiration that we report the passing of rock and roll icon Ian McLagan.  Ian was a member of the “Small Faces” and “Faces” and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

He died today, December 3, 2014, surrounded by family and friends in his adopted hometown of Austin, TX, due to complications from a stroke suffered the previous day.  He was 69 years old. His manager Ken Kushnick says,  ”He was a beloved friend to so many people and a true rock n roll spirit. His persona and gift of song impacted the music across oceans and generations.”

Ian’s bandmate in Small Faces and Faces, Kenney Jones said, “I am completely devastated by this shocking news and I know this goes for Ronnie and Rod also.”

Ian’s artistry, generosity and warmth of spirit touched countless other musicians and music fans around the world.  His loss will be felt by so many.
