Multi-instrumentalist Matthew Eaton, is best known to Domino as one of the founding members of Pram but also as an accomplished sound designer with professional experience in theatre and film. Over the past three years, Matt has worked on countless scores for projects including Hamlet (Creation Theatre Co), It Ain't All Bollywood (Rifco Arts) and most recently worked on a production The Gambler for BBC Radio 3. Versitile and swift, Matt enabled by his own studio facilities has created sounds from exotic asian to mysterious and eerie to sugar plum nursery style. Only Matt knows how to make running a screwdriver along an electric guitar sound like the perfect match for an underwater dream.

Pram themselves are no strangers to film and TV usage. 'Track of the Cat' was used on a BT advert and have had uses in other commercials including Volkswagen 30 Years in the Making. Last summer, Birmingham (UK) had the pleasure of premiering a new collaboration between Filmficciones and Domino artist Pram at Supersonic Festival.  The half hour show screened black and white horror film footage accompanied by a live original soundtrack by Pram. Commissioned by Capsule (the curators of Supersonic festival), the show hopes to venture nationwide and beyond. Here you can watch the trailer for this production.

NEW SIGNING: HEN OGLEDD 'MOGIC' OUT 16TH NOVEMBER 2018 (WEIRD WORLD/DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN
Hen Ogledd 'Problem Child'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Weird World are proud to welcome Hen Ogledd and their new record, Mogic, due for release on 16th November 2018. Founded by Richard Dawson and harpist, Rhodri Davies, with the addition of Dawn Bothwell and Sally Pilkington, Hen Ogledd’s meaning comes from the Welsh name for The Old North. Along with the news of Mogic, Hen Ogledd take you on a psychedelic journey through time and space in the new video for ‘Problem Child’. Watch above.

Mogic is Hen Ogledd’s third LP (their first for Weird World), and their most surprising and accessible work yet.

Each hailing from historically different tribal regions of the Old North, the musicians on Mogic challenge the idea that the ancient world was rife with magic, while the new is infiltrated by cold logic. The tracks on Mogic create new phantasmal blends of images and ideas that draw upon the mystical and technological. Mogic is a discombobulating pop prayer exploring artificial intelligence, witches, nanotechnology, pre-medieval history, robots, romance, computer games and waterfalls. 

This dynamic record of eddies and swirls, ravishing melodies, hallucinatory textures and bonkers rhythms is pinned down by some deft performances: Pilkington’s picture-perfect pop and earthy singing, Davies’ blazing harp splutterations and guitar moans, Bothwell's twisted telephone techno and bamboozling lyric-bombs and Dawson's utter bass. No small mention must go to special guest Will Guthrie, one of the finest and classiest drummers there is, who's all over this record like long grass on dunes.

STEVE MASON 'ABOUT THE LIGHT' OUT 18TH JANUARY 2018 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

Steve Mason has announced details of his new album, About The Light, which is out on Double Six on Friday 18th January 2019.  About The Light is his fourth solo album following Boys Outside (2010), Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time (2013) and Meet The Humans (2016). Stars Around My Heart, the first track to be shared from the album, is accompanied by a suitably out-there video directed by Brother Willis (www.brotherwillis.com). Watch above.

Talking about the Spielberg meets Ashes to Ashes video, Brother Willis said:

“The concept and inspiration were very much a collaborative effort with Steve.  We share a mutual love for the textures and warm personality that outdated formats have in contrast to the crisp HD 8K of today.  It was an incredible collaborative experiment to shoot on Tube Camera and modern camera and put it all out to tape and back to try and achieve the feeling of watching a beloved sci-fi movie from your youth.  And a good excuse to have amazingly talented people build an alien vessel and hone their early 80’s visual effects skills. We were aiming for an uplifting, Psychedelic Spielberg effect that hopefully we achieved.”

Picking Stephen Street to produce the album, and with a very clear plan in mind, from the off the goal was to capture the songs live and draw out their soulful elements.  Talking about the process, Stephen Street says, “Steve explained that he wanted to make this album with his band playing more ‘live’ than on some of his previous offerings and also to augment the songs with brass and female backing vocalists. I felt this approach of first stripping back the songs to a more ‘live’ feel to create more space for the more ‘soulful’ elements to breathe in was an interesting one and we got down to work!”

Recorded at studios in London and Brighton, About The Light,sees a subtle yet noticeable evolution in Steve’s sound. 

“It’s a beautiful, confident, positive, angry, loving and gentle album which once again moves what I do forward,” he adds.  “David Bowie said that you should always be slightly out of your comfort zone if you want to achieve greatness, and for the first time perhaps ever, I deliberately pushed myself into that place. Who doesn’t want greatness?”

HOW TO DRESS WELL 'THE ANTEROOM' OUT 19TH OCTOBER 2018 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN
How To Dress Well 'The Anteroom'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

How To Dress Well announces The Anteroom, the upcoming album from Thomas Krell will be out October 19th on Domino.  Co-produced by Joel Ford (Ford & Lopatin, Airbird) How To Dress Well shares the first single from the album – “Nonkilling 6 | Hunger”. Watch the collaborative effort, written and directed by Krell and visual artist Justin Daashuur Hopkins, with help from Hopkins’ NOH/WAVE collective, above.

The stories Krell sings on this record – some biographical, many from the most knotted corners of human life – are deeply personal and human(e). The Anteroom - with its blizzardous electronic noise, fragile melodies and poignant poetry - reclaims the experimental core of the HTDW project. 

As TK puts it: “I wrote the record after moving to Los Angeles, which is a crazy and maybe dreadful place, right after the 2016 election, with hell and death gaining ground all around us on every corner of the globe. The Anteroom is testament to a two year period in which I felt myself slipping out of the world and into a cosmic loneliness in which I would eventually be dissolved. In order to give myself a way back, I began to try to understand my station as some kind of anteroom – a space between – a chamber that separates the known and the unknown, stable life from total disintegration.” Teetering on treacherous precipices, living in an uncanny new place, Krell found his way back around to the sound and inspiration of his early work, and to his grandest statement yet – the culmination of a 10-year journey, and the dawn of a daring new one.

The song “Nonkilling 6 | Hunger” opens with a stanza from Li Young-Lee, one of the many poets sampled and featured on The Anteroom. Much of the video features interactively generated digital visual work by Cloaking, and all the effects in the video were generated by combining digital fx with analog in-camera techniques, yielding a physically intense lo-fi/hi-fi hybrid a union that is echoed in the music of The Anteroom

PLANNINGTOROCK 'POWERHOUSE' OUT 9TH NOVEMBER 2018 (DOMINO PUBLISHING)

Dance producer Planningtorock aka Jam Rostron announces their fourth album 'Powerhouse' out on the 9th November via Human Level/DFA records. Watch the video for lead single 'Transome' above.

Powerhouse marks the Berlin-via-Bolton producer’s most intimate album to date, a kinetic, self-produced record flush with attitude, humour, vulnerability and swagger. The LP offers up some- thing infinitely more personal: emotionally-charged, biographical anthems drawn from Rostron’s lived experiences as a non-binary genderqueer artist, experiences around family, identity and music itself.

The album was written and recorded across Berlin, London, New York and Los An- geles. It comes couched in the precision-tooled synths that have become Rostron’s signature, though critics and fans will hear a subtle, ear worm-y shift in style here: from the Noughties US r&b swagger of ‘Transome’ and the bubbling oldschool ‘90s house of 'Beulah Loves Dancing' and ‘Non Binary Femme’, to the funky, flute-laced ‘Much To Touch’ (the only track on Powerhouse to feature a co-producer, long-time friend and collaborator Olof Dreijer of The Knife).

The striking, pitched-down vocals that shook fans of W are as radiant as ever on Pow- erhouse. It was pitching that gave Rostron’s then-hidden inner self an authentic, exter- nal voice; and it was pitching that enabled them to come out, beginning “this long, complex and very much still evolving process of living their non-binary genderqueer self”.
