Hyper-creative, acclaimed ‘gypsy brewer’ Mikkeller has partnered with Domino & Ribbon Music artists to create a series of custom, limited edition brews, each lovingly and collaboratively flavored, designed, and produced over the course of the last 12 months.
The brews incorporate artists’ favorite flavor profiles, and each artist involved has worked with the Mikkeller brewing team and art director to make a recipe that represents their tastes – both aesthetically and fundamentally.
The first two brews made available for purchase come courtesy of Hamilton Leithauser and The Pastels. Hamilton Leithauser, lead singer of The Walkmen, released his debut solo album Black Hours via Ribbon Music in June of last year. Seminal Glaswegian band The Pastels released Slow Summits via Domino in 2013.
With the release of their widely praised third album, ‘Deep In The Iris’; 2015 has proved to be a huge and non-stop year for Montreal-based experimental pop band, Braids. With a perfectly intertwined mix of musical and visual aesthetic, we’ve been excited about this three piece for some time - and so when the chance for a Wonderland Session arose, we took it. Watch the performance of Braids 'Blondie' below.
Connan Mockasin and Devonté Hynes wrote and recorded the Marfa Myths 001 EP as part of the 2015 Marfa Myths festival. The pair spent the week prior to the Myths festival in Marfa Recording Studio with Gregory Smelley, an engineer and facility growing in prominence as the Far West Texas town increasingly becomes a destination for bands worldwide.
This occasion marked the first collaboration between Connan and Dev. Their week together inspired three new compositions that focus and flit through both artists’ particular approach to pop songwriting. Connan’s choral melodies meet Dev’s throwback funk in “Feelin’ Lovely” and “La Fat Fur”, whereas “Big Distant Crush” showcases a golden coalescence of their respective talents for crafting heartfelt ballads.
Youth Lagoon treated the NPR office to two songs from the new album: the heartbreaking tale of addiction "Kerry," as well as "Rotten Human," a meditation on the passage of time and search for purpose in life. And, as if to give a nod to his twitchy beginnings, Powers included "July," a wistful reflection on youth and regret from the band's debut.
Together with Oscar de la Renta, Cadenzza celebrates its ‘Handpicked’ movie. The first of this unique film series follows a Cadenzza trend expert on a journey behind the scenes in New York City, at the Spring Summer 2016 Oscar de la Renta fashion show.

Porches, the recording project of New York-based Aaron Maine, today announces the new album, Pool, set for release on February 5, 2016, via Domino. Written and recorded in his Manhattan apartment, Pool is an elegantly drawn set of gorgeous, synth-driven pop songs, expanding on and re-articulating the melancholy we’ve come to know from previous single releases on Terrible (2014’s Prism), Birdtapes (2013’s Townie Blunt Guts) and Seagreen (2014’s Leather), and a full length on Exploding in Sound (2013’s Slow Dance In The Cosmos).
Additionally, Porches today shares a video for the current single ‘Hour’. Directed by Alan Del Rio Ortiz (Blood Orange, Danny Brown, St. Vincent, Petite Noir), the video stars Maine and Kline as star-crossed lovers on a night excursion. Watch the video above.
