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

HAND HABITS 'PLACEHOLDER' OUT 1ST MARCH 2019 (DOMINO PUBLISHING)

Hand Habits has returned with their sophomore album, 'placeholder' out 1st March 2019 via Saddle Creek, watch the video for the title track above.

To make this album, Meg Duffy chose to work in a studio and bring in collaborators, entrusting them with what had previously been a very personal creative process. Over the course of 12 tracks, Meg emerges with new confidence as both a bandleader and singer.

As a lyricist, Meg is drawn to the in-between, and the songs on this new album primarily confront the ways in which certain experiences can serve as a stepping stone on the road to self-discovery. “A big aspect of my songwriting and the way I move through the world depends on my relationships with people. The songs on placeholder are about accountability and forgiveness,” Meg says. “These are all real stories. I don’t fictionalize much.” 

Instrumentally, placeholder can be situated alongside some of Meg’s folk-adjacent contemporaries like Angel Olsen or Big Thief, and the guitar work on this album proves that Meg continues to be one of the finest young musicians working today. placeholder is another entry in the Hand Habits songbook, but it’s also a valuable testament of our time. While placeholder inspires a sense of ease, simple questions rarely beget easy answers and Meg honors the indescribable joy and profound sorrow that comes with figuring things out, one step at a time.

Jessica Pratt announces new album 'Quiet Signs' Out 8th February via Mexican Summer/City Slang Records. To mark the announcement, Jessica Pratt has shared the first single 'This Time around' accompanied by a Laura-Lynn Petrick directed music video. Watch above.

Her first album fully recorded in a professional studio setting, Quiet Signs finds Pratt’s songwriting and accompanying guitar work refined — more distinct and direct. Songs like “Fare Thee Well” and “Poly Blue” retain glimmers of OYOLA‘s hazy day afternoon spells, yet delicate flute, strings sustained by organ arrangements, and rehearsal room piano now gesture towards the lush chamber pop and longing of The Left Banke. On the album’s first single, “This Time Around,” Pratt hits on a profound, late-night clarity over just a couple of deep chords, evoking Caetano Veloso‘s casual seaside brilliance. And before the curtain drops on Quiet Signs, Pratt provides a show-stopping closer, “Aeroplane.”

The album was written in Los Angeles and recorded at Gary’s Electric in Brooklyn, NY over 2017 and 2018. It was co-produced by Al Carlson. He plays flute, organ and piano on some songs. Matt McDermott also played piano and string synthesizer.

WATCHING JAMES YORKSTON 'SHALLOW' (DOMINO ALL-IN)

James Yorkston 'The Route to the Harmonium'

Having recently announced news of his new album The Route to the Harmonium due for release on Feb 22nd 2019 via Domino - James Yorkston is shares a second track from the forthcoming record. Watch the Sam Wisternoff directed video above. 

On ‘Shallow’, James sings: “There are years, there are still years, that could have been ours..."

This feeling of times gone by, times missed, times that are no longer possible, is echoed elsewhere on The Route to the Harmonium - friends and family, past and present, those that have remained and those who have left is the strongest thread running through the album. The Route to the Harmonium is James’ first solo album since 2014’s CRAWS, and is produced by himself alongside David Wrench. Whilst ‘Shallow’ is a poetic ballad, indicative in part of the classic Yorkston sound, the album also has three thrilling spoken-word pieces including the previously shared ‘My Mouth Ain’t No Bible’.

The album was almost entirely recorded by James himself, in the small Scottish fishing village of Cellardyke, where he lives. The Route to the Harmonium (or, ‘the search for peace’) is intensely personal; it’s the sound of home, of undisturbed craftmanship. Childhood and youth, those summers in West Cork, ‘just family, just brothers’ – that sense of adventure hums throughout. Listen closely and you can imagine him putting it together. Overlaying vocal and guitar tracks, adding further with Dulcitones, harmoniums and autoharps, with nyckelharpa, the distinctive Swedish stringed instrument given to him by a friend. This is Yorkston’s world and could be nowhere else in music.

Rustin Man 'Drift Code'

Rustin Man aka Paul Webb is pleased to share a second track from his forthcoming album Drift Code – to be released on February 1st via Domino. Watch the Edwin Burdis directed video above. 

On ‘Judgement Train’, which Webb describes as “the Marx Brothers in a musical version of Apocalypse Now,” he casts himself as a man playing poker with God on a train. “He is a bit of a cheat and a chancer, confident he can outwit God to win his place in Heaven. As it develops he realises it’s not going so well and God has cunningly switched places with the devil. By the end, the guy has been out-played and realises he actually has a lot in common with the devil. I like to think it has a happy ending!”

Webb, formerly the bass player in Talk Talk, has released one record under the moniker Rustin Man so far, the superb Out Of Season in 2002 - a collaboration with Beth Gibbons of Portishead. He has been working on the follow-up ever since, recording it in his home, a converted barn, in an Essex field three miles from the nearest village, an extraordinary building as much Old Curiosity Shop as modern living space. Creating that, and raising two daughters with his wife Sam, was happening alongside the making of Drift Code.

This is the first time Paul has written songs specifically for his own voice, and he turns out to be a gifted character actor, adopting various vocal roles across the songs, as heard on ‘Judgement Train’ and the previously shared ‘Vanishing Heart’.

WATCHING FAT WHITE FAMILY 'FEET' (DOMINO ALL-IN)

Following the announcement of Serfs Up!, their third album and their first for new label Domino, Fat White Family have shared the video to Feet, a suitably grandiose work directed by C.C. Wade which perfectly matches the overwhelming scope and ambition of the track.

Having released their second album, Songs For Our Mothers in January 2016, core-members Lias and Nathan Saoudi relocated to Sheffield and set about writing the album. Joined by co-conspirator Saul Adamczewski and recorded at their own Champzone studios in the Attercliffe area of the city, Serfs Up! was finished in late autumn 2018 with the help of long-time collaborator, Liam D. May and features a guest appearance from Baxter Dury on Tastes Good With The Money.

Serfs Up! is a lush and masterful work, lascivious and personal. Tropical, sympathetic and monumental. It invites the listener in rather than repel them through wilful abrasion. Fat White Family have broken previous default patterns of behaviour, and as such their third album heralds a new day dawning. Where once they soundtracked a grubby Britain of vape shops, Fray Bentos dinners and blackened tin-foil, a crepuscular comedown realm stalked by Shipman, Goebbels and Mark E. Smith, Fat White Family now inhabit another cosmos entirely. Serfs Up! is the product of a band of outlaws reborn. Few but themselves could have forecast it: Fat White Family survived. Fat White Family got wise. Fat White Family got sophisticated.

WATCHING CHERRY GLAZERR 'WASTED NUN' OUT 11TH JANUARY 2019 (DOMINO PUBLISHING)

Cherry Glazerr have shared the latest cut from their upcoming album 'Stuffed and Ready' Out 1st Of February via Secretly Canadian. Accompanying the new single is a gothic and hellish music video which can be watched above.

On 'Wasted Nun', Clementine Creevy (lead singer) explains “Wasted Nun” is about a woman trying to come to grips with her life. She’s a tragic woman. She hates herself and is trying to move through the world but gets deflated by extreme self-loathing. She wants to harness the power of the universe but instead she turns to self-destruction. The song is aggressive and intense because I’m letting out my anger, I’m enraged. People want girls to be strong, I want to be strong, but I just feel angry, and those are two very different things. There’s a stubbornness there, I know.'

Director Jessica Collins describes the video: “Music, blood, blades, babes. Sometimes anger looks like a weird beautiful demon nun that wants to rip right through you! You’re not sure how she’ll do it, but you know you want her to! The soft and sharp of brutality makes you want to bite down on something and rip it off! RIP IT UP! DO SOMETHING!

Stuffed & Ready follows Cherry Glazerr’s Secretly Canadian debut Apocalipstick, an album that sizzled with Creevy’s confidence, vision and fiercely idiosyncratic personality. When Creevy began writing Stuffed & Ready, she found unexpected inspiration by turning inward. Her unblinking honesty attempts to reconcile confusion and anger in the current political climate.
