We are thrilled to announce that VillagersDarling Arithmetic has won Album Award’ at the Ivor Novello Awards.

This is Conor O’Brien’s second Ivor Novello Award, having previously won ‘Best Song Musically and Lyrically’ in 2011, for his track ‘Becoming A Jackal’ taken from the debut album of the same name.

Released in April 2015, Darling Arithmetic – Villagers’ third full-length - is a breathtakingly, beautiful record entirely about love and relationships. O’Brien wrote, recorded, produced and mixed the album at his home in Malahide, a coastal town north of Dublin. It was a more pared-back, intimate journey compared to the multi-faceted arrangements of 2010’s Becoming A Jackal and 2013’s {Awayland} and revealed a single-minded artist at the peak of his already considerable songwriting powers.

Previously nominated twice for the Mercury Music Prize and winner of Ireland’s Choice Music Prize, O’Brien is currently working on his fourth album.

OLIVER COATES 'UPSTEPPING' OUT 13TH MAY 2016

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Upstepping'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

'Upstepping' is the new mini-album by the cellist, composer and producer Oliver Coates. On first listen, Coates’ description of it as “pumped-up body music” feels perfectly apt – it’s a bedroom recording fuelled by caffeine, nervous energy and early Orbital and Photek – but deconstructed, destabilising and even sinister elements soon emerge. Coates himself, a globally lauded soloist, juggles appearances in Europe’s grandest concert halls with long-running, wide-ranging collaborations with like-minded artists, from the experimental composers Jonny Greenwood and Mica Levi to the electronic musician and producer Actress.

Upstepping continues Coates’ deep exploration of the synthesis between the sounds he can tease from his cello and the sonic and rhythmic palette of electronic music. The instrument is a bridge between two worlds: the rigour and restraint of classical performance and the catharsis of dance music. Upstepping is fuelled by a childhood spent practising and performing during daylight hours, and glued to the pirate radio of 1980s London at night.

When he came to make Upstepping, “limiting myself was the only rule” Coates says. “About 95 per cent of the sounds are derived from recording the cello and processing it digitally. A hi-hat equivalent is often a distorted, compressed and heavily EQ’d horsehair-on-steel stroke. All the melodic pitched sounds, even the ones that feel like keys, are samples of the tail of a cello harmonic. For example, ‘Perfect Love’ is a study in grey, concealing the source – it’s 100 per cent made from different types of cello attack. All of this is my way to try to widen the vocabulary of percussion, sampling and drum machine sounds, which have a rich history of their own.” Listen to "Timelapse (Walrus)" below.

Villagers’ Darling Arithmetic has been nominated in the category ‘Album Award’, at this year’s Ivor Novello Awards.

Released in April 2015, Darling Arithmetic is the third full length album from Villagers. O’Brien wrote, recorded, produced and mixed the album at his home – the loft of a converted farmhouse that he shares in the coastal town of Malahide, north of Dublin. It was a more pared-back, intimate journey compared to the multi-faceted arrangements of 2010’s Becoming A Jackal and 2013’s {Awayland} and revealed a single-minded artist at the peak of his already considerable songwriting powers.

QUASI TO REISSUE FIRST THREE STUDIO ALBUMS

DOMINO RECORDINGS

'R&B Transmogrification’s, Featuring “Birds” , Field Studies'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

Indie rock had seen power duos before: Guv’ner, Royal Trux, Buckingham-Nicks, the Carpenters – but they’d never sounded like Quasi. Drumming like a controlled detonation; mutant blues coming out of an electric harpsichord or guitar by turns. Backwards through the backwoods of AM pop and Pebbles psych to create a new form: bar-room baroque. Honey-golden multitracked vocals and some of the bleakest, black-eyed, black-hearted lyrics put to paper since Lou Reed woke up in a bad mood. And all played with the kind of ramshackle ease that only comes from weeks of practice, months in the van, and serious chops.

Janet Weiss and Sam Coomes first collaborated in 1990 as Motorgoat, but by 1993 they had become Quasi. These initial excursions would later be re-released as Early Recordings, but 1997’s R&B Transmogrification is where they define their double act. On drums and harmonies, Weiss is all low-key Bonham-ie, power with poise. On top Coomes’ Roxichord makes you wonder how the electronic harpsichord never took off, its low-end crunch with top notes sounding like Ray Manzarek with a Superfuzz. 

From Weiss’s opening salvo, and the first action-painting splatter of Coomes’ keyboard on ‘Our Happiness is Guaranteed’, Featuring “Birds” is Quasi at their peak, melding jams-kicking rock’n’roll, punk action, and chord shifts that feel like the change of a season. The success of Weiss’s other group, Sleater-Kinney, in the meantime was clearly only firing up, rather than undercutting Quasi.

Closing in on the millennium, both feet on the pedals, Field Studies arrives in 1999. Organ edges out the Roxichord, making for a sound less jagged and more floating – like the protagonist of ‘The Star You Left Behind’, drifting out into an infinite void.  Does Field Studies have an Elliott Smith turn to the harmonies? They do share that heady hit of sweet-sour power-pop – or maybe both Quasi and Smith have a Heatmiser influence, given that’s the Portland band that Coomes and Smith had played in together.

Seven years after Animal Collective’s Josh Dibb (aka Deakin) launched a Kickstarter to fund the recording of his solo debut, the album is finally making its way to digital retailers.

The six-track Sleep Cycle has landed alongside  a video for the eight-minute, spacey trip, “Just Am.” The visual inverts the color and follows Deakin on a walk through a barren forest. Dibb originally began working on the album in 2009 when he launched a Kickstarter to fund a trip to Mali to play a music festival and raise money for the organization, Temedt, which works to end slavery in the country. Dibb began working on Sleep Cycle six years ago, several of the songs were recorded last year. The timing aligns with Animal Collective’s latest full-length Painting With, and Dibb does not appear on the band’s 10th LP.

Empty dance floor and a calm Moffat explaining that there is a reality to be aware of beyond the art, but somehow eventually getting slightly swept up in the moment.” Stream it in full below.

THROWS SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM OUT 10TH JUNE 2016

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Throws' & Instrumentals

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

Mike Lindsay and Sam Genders, Tunng’s founding forefathers, a magical Icelandic adventure of man chats, drinks-til-dawn, and a little ‘Northern Falsetto’ has found the pair re-igniting their spark on new record Throws.

Nearly ten years since the release of Tunng's third album Good Arrows and the last time the partnership’s imagination was let loose together - comes Throws; the sound of two old friends and collaborators reconnecting, catching up on each other’s lives and creating ideas on an enchanting island. During their time apart Mike had been living in Reykjavik and Sam had moved to Sheffield; it became apparent the two friends had taken dramatically different paths in love, location, and life. Curious what they could produce second time around; with no preconceived agenda Sam packed his suitcase and joined Mike in his Reykjavik studio, in the town’s industrial old fishing harbour, with no more intentions than catching up with his old buddy.

A brilliantly varied record that couldn’t be further from the pair’s earlier incarnation, the two have channelled all they’ve soaked up over the years into salt-swept surroundings. Through the studio’s big windows over-looking the sea, synths, old guitars and an off-key piano would bring the elements onto the record. On the big pop of ‘High Pressure Front’ pizzicato strings drop like onomatopoeic rainfall on the water, whilst Sam’s soulful falsetto on the beautifully odd ‘Learn Something’, the traditional folk rooting of ‘Silence In Between’, and ‘Knife’s glitchy electronica all capture the town’s movement, energy, and throes of passion.

STAL 'YOUNG HEARTS' RELEASED 23RD OCTOBER 2015 (GRAND BLANC/VELVETICA)

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Young Hearts'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

Born and raised in the south of France, Pierre-Marie Maulini was a musician from a young age. With his older brother and a couple of friends he played in the band « A Red Season Shade » and released a debut album in 2006 on swiss label Gentlemen Records. A post-rock effort influenced by Sigur Ros and Explotions in the Sky which led him to meet local shoegaze icon Anthony Gonzalez. It didn’t take them long to become friends and Anthony soon asked him to join M83 on tour for the release of their fifth album « Saturday = Youth ». The band spent almost 2 years travelling around the world, opening for bands such as Kings Of Leon in the UK or Midnight Juggernauts in Australia, and of course headlining sold out shows all over America!

Back home and enthrilled by this experience, Pierre-Marie decided it was time for him to lead his own project and started STAL. Recording bedroom demos first, then moving to Ireland for a while where renowned sound engineer Patrick Walsh helped him develop his keyboard and synthesizer knowledge and skills. The first demos started spreading in 2011, they defined Stal’s sound as epic with a strong rock energy but also a touch of electronica and even ambient. On stage, the band is also composed by Hugo Rattoray on synths and guitars, Renaud Rodier on drums.

STAL is the word for steel in many languages. It evoques the coldness of machines and modern industrial life. But behind this cold varnish Stal’s music reveals itself as harmonious, luminous and somehow exhilarating, its lyrics speaking of the true and simple happiness one can find in life, love and hope.

The debut album 'Young Hearts' was released in October, 2015. Watch the video for 'Gone' above.

'The State Of Things' EP & Instrumentals

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

Visuals will debut on thesongsays with his beautifully well-rounded novella of an EP, The State Of Things.

The label has long focused on the romantic and conceptual currents of dance music and Visuals joins the tight-knit roster with three stunning songs that perfectly fit the thesongsays ethos while bringing together the diverse elements of his musical background. The Brooklyn-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist - whose work debuted on Nicolas Jaar’s Other People imprint - excels not only through his distinctive vocal style and melodic richness, but also through the acute subtlety of his lyrical content.

The record’s A-side is a case in point: pure tropical melancholia that finds Visuals lyrically sifting through the modern contradictions of everyday life over lambent pads and off-kilter percussion: “I couldn’t tell hell from paradise / I’m so caught up in the state of things.” While the vocals recall the realm of indie, the quirky textures and post-production (courtesy of DARKSIDE member Dave Harrington and Berlin-based house producer and drummer Louis McGuire ) gesture toward the electronic.

On the flip, the buoyant bass line of "Days Of Our Youth" anticipates an infectious chorus that feels perfectly anthemic for spring and summer: "Days of our youth on fire / Burning in your eyes." It’s an expertly crafted and arranged piece of music that lends itself to adventurous DJs wanting to give the room something counterintuitive and unusual. Completing the release is "No Handle"—pensive, deep, and hypnotic for the noir corners of early morning dance floors.
