THE NORTH SEA ORCHESTRA 'DRONNE' OUT 9TH SEPTEMBER 2016

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Dronne'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

After a 4 year break North Sea Radio Orchestra return with their fourth album 'Dronne'. All North Sea Radio Orchestra music is composed, recorded and lead by guitarist Craig Fortnam who during the last four years he has not been idle. As well as releasing Arch Garrison's 2014 CD, 'I Will Be A Pilgrim' (Craig as singer-songwriter, singing songs about old roads and chalk downland in a psych-folk haze), Craig also spent the first half of 2014 immersed in the music of Robert Wyatt, having been asked to direct and do all arrangements for a performance of Wyatt's music for the Nuits de Fourviere Festival in Lyon, with North Sea Radio Orchestra as house-band. 'I A Moon', North Sea Radio Orchestra's previous album was very much concerned with the tragic illness that befell Craig's good friend Tim Smith (that underrated genius from pop / prog / punk legends Cardiacs), so that album felt almost unbearably sad at points.

For this release Craig wanted there to be no 'meaning' or particular theme but of course life often intervenes in such plans; half way through making the record Craig suffered a close family bereavement, naturally having a huge impact on the outcome of this album 'Dronne' still contains all the elements that have made North Sea Radio Orchestra special to their fans and wholly unique in British music; the ability to produce beautiful music without being over-sweet, the combination of large-scale instrumentals ('Dinosaurus Rex Parts 1 and 2') with smaller pieces and songs, the beautiful voice of Sharron Fortnam, and the ability to marry seemingly disparate influences (Britten, Vaughan-Williams, Cardiacs, early Kraftwerk etc), all wrapped up in a very English/Northern European harmonic and melodic language.

THE CLANG GROUP 'PRACTICE' OUT 30TH SEPTEMBER 2016

'Practice'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

On turning 60, legendary producer Clive Langer decided it was time to get a band together. Their first LP is 'Practice' will be released on Domino.

Previous to that moment, Clive’s CV read like a route map of the last four decades of the very best British music. As a member of legendary rock’n’roll misfits Deaf School, Langer had helped influence a generation of kids who’d go on to form bands as diverse as Madness and Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Later on - with studio partner Alan Winstanley – he helped steer everything from One Step Beyond to Kilimanjaro; Too-Rye-Ay to Shipbuilding (a co-write with Elvis Costello) with stop offs for the Attractions, the Commotions, Morrissey, Roddy Frame and even the Dame himself (Bowie’s timeless classic Absolute Beginners). But something about that significant age set him on a different path.

Recorded at Iguana Studio in Brixton with musician mates and long time cohorts (including Suggs and Roxy Music’s Andy Mackay), Practice is jagged, melodious, ingenious, impulsive and exhilarating.

HOW TO DRESS WELL 'CARE' OUT 23RD SEPTEMBER 2016

DOMINO ALL-IN

'Care' & Instrumentals

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

How To Dress Well - aka Tom Krell - will release his fourth album, Care, via Weird World /Domino. Written by Krell, mixed by Andrew Dawson (Kanye West, fun.), and featuring co-production from Krell alongside Jack Antonoff, Dre Skull, CFCF, and Kara-Lis Coverdale, Care is a sensual, dazzling alt-pop tour de force.

The video for the first single ‘Lost Youth / Lost You’, was directed by Ben Tricklebank and choreographed by Jos McKain, features dancers McKain, Viet Dang, Grave Jones, Emily Jane, and Annie Blackhurt. Watch above.

Care is the next step in the evolution of Krell’s sound, which began with his first critically-lauded album, Love Remains, in 2010 and continued up through his widely acclaimed previous album, What Is This Heart?, released in 2014. In six quick years, Krell has deftly moved from hazy, bedroom R&B to full-blown alt-pop gems, projecting more clarity and depth than ever before. Writing and working between Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York, Care retains Krell’s signature lyrical wordplay while being the most vibrant, curious, and celebratory he’s ever been with the listener.

DOMINO ALL-IN

'Superimpose' EP / 'Potential' & Instrumentals

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

SUPERIMPOSE explores the making of The Range's new album Potential, which exclusively uses the voices of people who posted videos of themselves on YouTube. The documentary sheds light on the unique and varied human stories of the people featured on the album who were completely unknown to The Range (Brooklyn-based electronic producer James Hinton) when originally selected. The documentary travels to off-the-beaten-path neighborhoods of New York City, NY; Kingston, Jamaica and London, England to tell the stories of a wide range of unique people - from Kai, the shy Brooklyn teenager who loves singing Ariana Grande covers; to Damian “Naturaliss” Gordon, the charismatic Jamaican correctional officer by day, dancehall singer by night; to Ophqi, the determined Brixton rapper and dutiful father with a difficult past who is still waiting for his moment to succeed as a musician; and more. Directed by the gifted young filmmaker Daniel Kaufman whose resume includes short films and music videos for DJ Khaled, Waka Flocka Flame, OT Genasis, The Decemberists, and more.

An early version of the documentary screened this March at YouTube’s SXSW showcase in Austin, and this past weekend’s Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. Further screenings of the full version of the film have been announced in New York City and London. See a list of screenings and events below.

Two percussionists, Sven Kacirek and Thomas Klein present Rhythmus I-IV. Although the two musicians each speak their own distinct rhythmic language, with only a few data transfers between Hamburg and Düsseldorf they have conjured up four compact tracks, which despite the instrumental limitations, are surprisingly diverse in terms of sound, groove and depth. Each sent the other a sketch for further development and expanded upon these blueprints. In a final meeting, formal decisions and minimal corrections were made. In addition to drums, cymbals, shakers, xylophone and vibraphone sounds, sonic treatments are clearly audible.

The End of Comedy is the debut album by Drugdealer, a new project conceived and conducted by Los Angeles artist Michael Collins (formerly of Run DMT, Salvia Plath) who guides a group of Angelenos including Ariel Pink and Natalie Mering (Weyes Blood) through a whimsical world informed by Jean Baudrillard, social media perception, Sergio Leone’s spaghetti western vistas and Collins’s endless travels.

The first track to be shared from the album is ‘Suddenly’ featuring Weyes Blood – watch the video above.

DOMINO ALL-IN

'Motion Graphics'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

Motion Graphics, the solo project of NY based electronic artist Joe Williams, announces its’ debut with a self-titled LP out on Domino. Created over a two year period between NY, LA, & Baltimore, Motion Graphics is a unique and compelling collection of richly detailed widescreen compositions, inspired in part by the ambient sound effects of digital menu systems that decorate today’s auditory landscape. Creating custom randomised software instruments, Williams’ mimics the erraticism of the Twitter timeline and the aggregated news feed, while incorporating elements of techno-pop and jazz, sequenced through the superhuman capabilities of a computer. Motion Graphics is an ambitious debut from an artist adept at manipulating the sounds and digital tools ubiquitous to the everyday. The first single ‘Lense’ is now available, accompanied by a striking animated visual of the album artwork, a video created by CULTURESPORT.

Williams currently serves as a core member of Future Times’ Maxmillion Dunbar’s ongoing Lifted ensemble. Williams’ productions can be heard on Baltimore-based Co La’s Moody Coup LP and on Williams’ original score for 12 O’Clock Boys, a feature-length documentary on the notorious dirt bike riders of Baltimore’s Westside.

Lou says 'I had a gut feeling I wanted to experiment with a slightly psychedelic feel and, by chance, met up with Simon Byrt (the album's co-producer) in a friend's studio. It turned out that he has a strange passion for vintage spring and tape echoes and, before long, we'd decided to make a record together."

SON LUX 'STRANGER FORMS' EP OUT 17TH JULY 2016

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Stranger Forms' EP & Instrumentals

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

Son Lux began as the solo project of classically trained electro artist Ryan Lott, but it was expanded to a trio for last year’s album Bones. The trio is set to follow up that excellent full-length effort with the Stranger Forms EP this summer. 

It opens with winding, wandering, triumphant horns and careens into a marching band feel with the horns coming in huge bursts with big drums. Lott’s soulful vocals come in to signal a switch to a more subdued, jazzy aesthetic and then the two contrasting sounds alternate, wonderfully fluctuating the energy and evolving the sonic for a relentlessly engaging excursion. Hanna Benn joins to punctuate the crescendo as Lott provocatively repeats “You don’t know me/ You don’t know me at all,” evoking the gamut of emotions that come with the realization of someone you care about knowing you less intimately than you thought or would like them to. The tension between the brightness and immensity of the sound and the darkly shaded sentiments makes for a stirring experience.

Check out the EP opener, “Cage of Bones” above.

KING CREOSOTE 'ASTRONAUT MEETS APPLEMAN' OUT 2ND SEPTEMBER 2016

DOMINO ALL-IN

'You Just Want'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

King Creosote, returns with his new record Astronaut Meets Appleman. It explores the tension and harmony between tradition and technology – between analogue and digital philosophies – and also invokes a feeling, King Creosote (otherwise known as Fife’s Kenny Anderson) says, of “being caught between heaven and earth”.

Astronaut Meets Appleman follows King Creosote’s breakthrough record From Scotland With Love (2014) and his Mercury-nominated collaboration with Jon Hopkins, Diamond Mine (2011). It arrives replete with a chamber-rock rabble and then some: harps and bagpipes come as standard, as does silence.

The first track to be shared is the album’s opener ‘You Just Want’. A seven-minute piece of hymnal drone-pop, its touchstones are the art of patience, scenes of mild bondage and Venus (in Furs). Listen above.

THE WYTCHES 'ALL YOUR HAPPY LIFE' OUT 30TH SEPTEMBER 2016

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'All Your Happy Life' & Instrumentals

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

The new Wytches album is set to be released on Heavenly Recordings and is titled ‘All Your Happy Life.’ The album was recorded by Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds / Grinderman) in Chapel Studios in Lincolnshire and then Toe Rag in East London, and mixed by Sclavunos and Mikey Young (Total Control Eddy Current Suppression.)

The album draws on a lifetime’s worth of new experiences shoehorned into two whirlwind years since their acclaimed debut album Annabel Dream Reader. There’s no difficult second album syndrome here. This black-hearted set is a combination of heavy comedown psychedelia and bilious and brilliant baroque ‘n’ roll. It’s portentous and scathing. Scabrous and bold. Utterly nihilistic.

Influences and inspiration is drawn from unexpected places – reading Tolstoy’s stories of dysfunctional relationships on the tour bus, digging the warm Hammond-and-acoustic tones of Elliot Smith, loads of underground metal band – but mainly it is informed by observing small town English life with new eyes, having traversed the planet on that first wave of success that followed their 2014 debut. It’s not so much the sound of the calm after the storm, but the howling vortex that follows in its wake.

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Build A Boat To The Sun' & Instrumentals

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

Sea of Bees is the musical project of Julie Ann Bee, or Jules as everyone calls her. She sings, writes the songs, and plays lots of musical instruments. The 3rd album, Build A Boat To The Sun, is released on 3loop Music. 

Since the release of 2012’s “Orangefarben” (Heavenly Records), “Build A Boat To The Sun” sees Jules leaving the darkness for brighter horizons, gathering the good things up, leaving the bad behind and moving forward. The music has also moved forward sonically from previous releases with more tracks having a full band sound after Jules bought a drum kit and spent as much time playing drums as guitar much to her neighbour's dismay.
The immediate upbeat pop swagger of ‘Test Yourself’ and alt-rocker ‘Karma Kard’ set out the stall for this album as Jules and producer John Baccigaluppi visit a variety of styles across the album. There are moments of the folk-pop that brought the initial critical acclaim in ‘Don’t Follow Me’ and ‘Moline’, touches of lush orchestration in ‘Monk’ and ‘Little Sea’ and even a nod to the electronica of Grandaddy (Jason Lytle is a big fan) on ‘Dan’. The album was mixed with Jesse Lauter who produced The Low Anthem.

NEW SIGNING - PETER PERRETT (THE ONLY ONES)

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'The Only Ones', 'Even Serpents Shine', 'Baby's Got A Gun', The One (Peter Perrett) 'Woke Up Sticky'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

Led by the raffish and slightly scuzzy romance-obsessed Peter Perrett, the Only Ones were one of the punk era's most underrated bands. Not as confrontational as the Sex Pistols, as politically indulgent as the Clash, or as stripped-down as the Ramones, the Only Ones played not-so-fast guitar rock that sounded deeply indebted to the New York Dolls and other mid-'70s proto-punks. Singing his intelligently crafted pop songs in a semi-tuneful whine of a voice and backed by a band that effectively combined youthful exuberance with gracefully aging veterans (non-punk drummer Mike Kellie had done time with early-'70s clod-rockers Spooky Tooth, bassist Alan Mair was nearly 40), Perrett was an astute chronicler of the vagaries of modern, dysfunctional love. Despite a career that lasted from 1978-1981 and one certifiable "hit" song to their credit (the brilliant "Another Girl, Another Planet"), the Only Ones became the archetypal contenders that never broke big, despite assurances from fans and critics that they couldn't miss. Although they split up in 1981 after only three records, the Only Ones, due in large part to "Another Girl, Another Planet," became more influential than one would have guessed.

Listen to Paul Westerberg and you'll hear more than a little Peter Perrett (in fact, the Replacements covered "Another Girl"); look at the number of Only Ones releases over the past decade (a half-dozen at least) and you soon realize that a significant cult surrounding the band grew after their breakup. Ironically, it was the posthumous release of the sessions for John Peel's BBC show that, more than any of the proper studio releases, accurately displayed the muscle and smarts of this fine band. There have been many rumors surrounding Perrett's life after the Only Ones, many of them involving an alleged heroin addiction. Perrett did continue to record and release solo projects during the '80s, including a project known as the One in the mid-'90s.
