Seamus Fogarty is pleased to announce news of his new EP The Old Suit, which will be released on November 2nd.  He also shares the title track from the EP, featuring additional production and mixing by Mike Lindsay (Tunng, LUMP). Listen above.

Seamus explains how the EP got started: “I put a crappy drum machine, a crappier synth and a cheap guitar in a plastic bag and took myself off to a cottage in a restored famine village on the Southwest coast of Ireland to write. I came back to London refreshed, having written no songs, and went out for a few drinks with my friend Ed Dowie after which we challenged each other to write something new every two weeks. I trawled through various phone recordings I’d made while on my (non)writing trip, hoping to find some magic fragment, and I found a line about an old suit which I’d written while reflecting on the loss of my friend Willie Meighan.  I wanted to make something a bit different from the album (except for Emma Smith’s strings which go on everything), so I took a chance and asked Mike Lindsey if he’d lend an ear or two and help mix and produce the track, and this is what we ended up with.” 

The Old Suit EP also features another new Seamus song, ‘Song For John’ (an ode to John Martyn and a sing off Seamus once had with him) plus two remixes, the first by Django Django and the second from label-mate James Yorkston. Seamus says of the remixes: “I've been a huge fan of Django Django since seeing them on the Planet Eigg back in 2012 so was delighted to be able to get them on board to remix ‘Carlow Town’. James Yorkston has been a great friend and inspiration for many years; this is James getting his dancing shoes on.”

Domino are thrilled to mark the return of Georgia with her new single, “Mellow” feat. Shygirl. “Mellow” is the first release from Georgia since 2017’s “Feel It” and sees Georgia honing her deft production craft, moving towards a deeply euphoric and seductive exploration into the underground club sound. Listen above. 

Mixed by David Wrench with programming from Ragz Originale, “Mellow” features a vocal collaboration from Shygirl, who is part of the London-based collective, NUXXE.As Georgia notes, with the club sound of “Mellow”, Shygirl’s fierce vocal addition is “perfect, edgy & almost non-human like, as if she's the voice of your hedonistic sub conscience!" Since the 2015 release of her self-titled debut LP, Georgia has been busy in the studio and out, with guest features on tracks by Honne, alongside taking on producer duties for a number of other acts and working on her own set of new recordings. 

The artwork for “Mellow” features the photograph ‘Marie Clair & Anna, 12, after Daisy’s Slumber Party 1991’ by renowned, influential American documentary and portrait photographer, Nancy Honey. The image is from her series of photographs entitled ‘Entering The Masquerade’ published by the National Museum of Photography Film & Television in 1992.

Taken from his critically acclaimed new album, Singularity, Jon Hopkins is very proud to share the video for the title track. Directed by Academy Films’ Seb Edwards, ‘Singularity’ is a visual pinnacle of the album’s arc and a continuation and deepening of all the themes that pervade Jon Hopkins’ work. Watch above.

Jon Hopkins says of the video: “This is the single most epic video I’ve ever had made. Seb has been a friend and collaborator for nearly 15 years now, but this is the first opportunity we’ve had to work with total freedom on a video for my own music. The power of what he has done left me speechless the first time I saw it. He translated the themes of destruction and defiance that I fed into the music into a powerful, violent ballet between male and female and I totally love it.” 

Director Seb Edwards adds:  “I've always loved Jon’s work and we've been wanting to collaborate for a while. ‘Singularity’ is such an incredible track, its merciless intensity somehow reflects our troubled times. I wanted to capture the feeling of defiance that rises from the initial brutality. The track is ultimately about acceptance and finding peace in nature. I hope I did it justice.”

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)

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'

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

JULIA HOLTER 'AVIARY' OUT 26TH OCTOBER 2018 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN
Julia Holter 'Aviary'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE


Aviary is an epic journey through what Julia Holter announces her latest album 'Aviary' to be released on 26th October via Domino. Watch the video for I Shall Love 2 above. 

It’s the Los Angeles composer’s most breathtakingly expansive album yet, full of startling turns and dazzling instrumental arrangements. The follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2015 record, Have You in My Wilderness, it takes as its starting point a line from a 2009 short story by writer Etel Adnan: "I found myself in an aviary full of shrieking birds." It’s a scenario that sounds straight out of a horror movie, but it’s also a pretty good metaphor for life in 2018, with its endless onslaught of political scandals, freakish natural disasters, and voices shouting their desires and resentments into the void.

Aviary, executive produced by Cole MGN and produced by Holter and Kenny Gilmore, combines Holter's slyly theatrical vocals and Blade Runner-inspired synth work with an enveloping palette of strings and percussion that reveals itself, and the boundless scope of her vision, over the course of fifteen songs. Holter was joined by Corey Fogel (percussion), Devin Hoff (bass), Dina Maccabee (violin, viola, vocals), Sarah Belle Reid (trumpet), Andrew Tholl (violin), and Tashi Wada (synth, bagpipes).
