Gliss Riffer marks new territory for Dan Deacon who, following up on the release of his large ensemble-based recordings - 2009’s Bromst and 2012’s America - decided to return to a simpler way of writing and recording, similar to that of 2007’s Spiderman of the Rings, which has resulted in this self-produced album.

Watch the Andrew Jeffrey Wright of All Ages Production-directed video for ‘Feel The Lightning’ above.

MATTHEW E WHITE 'FRESH BLOOD' OUT MARCH 9TH 2014

DOMINO ALL-IN

In 2012, Richmond, Virginia songwriter Matthew E. White impressed with his debut album Big Inner, a collection of songs that took older influences like Randy Newman, Curtis Mayfield, and The Band, and made them into a progressive, 21st century product. Now, he hopes to pick up where he left off with his follow-up, Fresh Blood.

Due out March 10th via Domino Records, the 10-track LP was co-produced by White and his Spacebomb Records co-founder Trey Pollard. 

Watch the album trailer above which features a snippet of new song “Tranquility”.

NEW PUBLISHING CATALOGUE - SLINT

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Spiderland' & 'Tweez'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

SLINT began in 1986. Before that, drummer Britt Walford, guitarist David Pajo, guitarist/vocalist Brian McMahan, and original bassist Ethan Buckler had played together in various bands within the tight-knit Louisville Punk scene. Brian and Britt formed their first band – Languid and Flaccid – in middle school, when Britt was just eleven. The older punks collapsed in fits of laughter when Britt and Brian’s dads carried in their amps and set them up on stage. Languid and Flaccid also featured Ned Oldham, later of the Anomoanon and older brother to Will Oldham a.k.a. Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy. Everyone in the band traded instruments from song to song. Brian and Britt also played in the beloved melodic hardcore band Squirrel Bait.

SLINT’s first show was during a service at the Unitarian Universalist church that Ethan’s parents attended. Even the people who held their ears told the band afterward how much they enjoyed it. In 1987, SLINT recorded their first album, Tweez, in Chicago with Steve Albini, who also produced albums for the Pixies, PJ Harvey, and Nirvana. Tweez was released on the minuscule Jennifer Hartman Records and Tapes label in 1989 and later reissued by Touch and Go Records in 1993. Ethan Buckler left the band after Tweez to pursue his own vision with his band King Kong and was replaced by Todd Brashear. In the fall of 1989, the members of SLINT scattered to various colleges throughout the Midwest. Britt and Brian wound up at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. Before the school year was out, both were invited not to return. Then, over four days in August of 1990, SLINT recorded their second album, Spiderland, and the world would never again sound the same.

Produced by Brian Paulson at River North Recorders in Chicago and released by Touch and Go Records in April of 1991, the six songs on Spiderland methodically map a shadowy new continent of sound. The music is taut, menacing, and haunting – its structure built largely on absence and restraint, on the echoing space between the notes, but punctuated by sudden thrilling blasts of unfettered fury. It is a sound that no one had heard before and that no one will ever forget. The eerie, now-iconic black and white cover photo of the four band member’s heads breaking the surface of the water was taken by their friend Will Oldham. PJ Harvey was among the respondents to the band’s call for interested female vocalists on the back cover.

Spiderland spawned a whole new genre, frequently called Post-Rock, and came to be regarded as one of the most important and influential records of the past thirty years. The album was introduced to a wider audience when the song “Good Morning, Captain” appeared on the soundtrack for Larry Clark’s controversial 1995 film Kids. In 2010, Spiderland was enthroned in the popular and acclaimed 33 1/3 series of books about seminal record albums. SLINT broke up shortly before Spiderland was released. Band members went on to play in Tortoise, the Breeders, Palace, The For Carnation, Papa M, Evergreen, Interpol, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. In 2005, SLINT reunited to headline the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in Camber Sands, England, followed by a subsequent eighteen date tour. In 2007, the band performed Spiderland in its entirety for a series of European shows and at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. In late 2013, they co-headlined the final All Tomorrow’s Parties weekend at Camber Sands.

NEW SIGNING - TIRZAH

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'I'm Not Dancing' EP & 'No Romance' EP

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

London's wonky pop singer Tirzah first came to listeners' attention with her bold single "I'm Not Dancing," a collaboration with Micachu & the Shapes' Mica Levi that blended garage beats and an odd recorder sample into something ear-catching. Tirzah and Levi became friends during their time at the Purcell School, where Tirzah was studying harp and Mica was studying violin, viola, and composition. The pair began working on their own music at that time, but Tirzah decided to pursue a career in fashion and Levi went on to form the Shapes. They restarted their collaboration in the 2010s with 2012's I'm Not Dancing EP, a distinctive blend of Levi's noise-meets-classical-meets-electronic production and Tirzah's down-to-earth vocals. The EP was released by Greco Roman, also home toDisclosure and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. The pair returned in April 2014 with the No Romance EP, a slightly more streamlined version of their unique electro-pop. Listen below.

It is with great sadness and eternal admiration that we report the passing of rock and roll icon Ian McLagan.  Ian was a member of the “Small Faces” and “Faces” and was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.

He died today, December 3, 2014, surrounded by family and friends in his adopted hometown of Austin, TX, due to complications from a stroke suffered the previous day.  He was 69 years old. His manager Ken Kushnick says,  ”He was a beloved friend to so many people and a true rock n roll spirit. His persona and gift of song impacted the music across oceans and generations.”

Ian’s bandmate in Small Faces and Faces, Kenney Jones said, “I am completely devastated by this shocking news and I know this goes for Ronnie and Rod also.”

Ian’s artistry, generosity and warmth of spirit touched countless other musicians and music fans around the world.  His loss will be felt by so many.

PILOTE 'THE SLOWDOWN: EPILOGUE' EP OUT 27TH OCTOBER 2014

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'The Slowdown: Epilogue' EP

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

Pilote release a 10 track extended EP which features remixes from the original album aswell as bonus tracks from the original sessions
for The Slowdown. These are 5 tracks I was most pleased with at the time, but could not fit into the 'flow' of the album itself, so it's great to have them see the light of day nonetheless.

In addition,the release contains 'Catching Matilda',a brand new tune recorded with local fiddle player and artist Camilla Rose Yuill. We took an ancient cajun tune by Delma Lachney, "Je M'Vais Dans Le Chemin', as a melodic starting point, and re worked the tune as our own, complete with a vocal refrain performed by Camilla's sister Elise.

The remixes showcase an array of UK electronica talent putting their own slants on the original tunes. So, many thanks to The Unknown Stuntman, Scaramanga Silk, Kin; Aesthetic and Route 24 for their sterling contributions.

Watch the video for 'Foggy Paddock Backstep' (taken from 'The Slowdown' album) and listen to the full EP below.

HOOKWORMS 'RADIO TOKYO' SINGLE OUT 16TH FEBRUARY 2015

DOMINO ALL-IN

'The Hum' & Instrumentals

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

There is Hookworms live and then there is Hookworms on record. As the flood of acclaim around their second album The Hum testifies, both are equally thrilling sides of one coin. The Leeds five-piece mix power with finesse in the studio, each revolution of their visceral protopunk-wired repetition rock an exercise in nuance versus tumult. Onstage, though, they induce a form of sensory overload that brands black onto the brain. Directed by Sam Wiehl, their new video for ‘Radio Tokyo’ captures the audio and visual intensity of the band, glottal stabs of light punctuating the darkness they shroud themselves in while performing.
