If…, is the solo album from Bill Ryder-Jones out November 14th 2011 recorded to soundtrack Italo Calvino’s meditation on writing in the post modernist novel If On A Winters Night A Traveller. Ryder-Jones left The Coral after the fifth studio album where he was able to spend time focussing on developing ideas in string arrangements and orchestral platforms particularly with a focus on working towards emulating beloved film scores. This debut came into being in various locations around Ryder-Jones’ hometown of Liverpool including the Scandinavian Church, Grade II listed warehouse Elevator Studios and his mother's home down by the Irish sea. Musicians, friends and even the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra pulled together to make this extraordinary undertaking a magnificent work and the beginning of what will assuredly be a spectacular opening for one of Domino's most fine new signings sure to be recognised as one of Britain's finest young composers.

Trevor Powers, whose stage name is Youth Lagoon, began writing his debut album The Year of Hibernationin 2010. Based around the idea of psychological dysphoria, Powers tried to document the trails of his mind through songs of minimalism and hypnotic ambiance. Powers signed with Mississippi-based label Fat Possum Records in 2011, he toured much of the following year before going back into solitude to write.
Wondrous Bughouse, Powers' sophomore album (releeaed in March 2013), was spawned from what he describes as "becoming more fascinated with the human psyche and where the spiritual meets the physical world." During the time he wrote, Powers became intrigued with the metaphysical universe and blending those ideas with pop music.

Toronto-native Warren Hildebrand began his Foxes in Fiction project in 2005, during his sophomore year of high school, as an outlet for his drug-induced, experimental sound collages. His debut album, Swung from the Branches, was released in 2010 on Hildebrand’s own label Orchid Tapes and then later released via Ghostly International’s sub-label Moodgadget Records. During the downtime between his Alberto EP, a split 7” with Benoît Pioulard, and a slew of self-releases distributed for free from his website, Hildebrand began to focus heavily on Orchid Tapes, a hub for underground acts that fit within his vision and aesthetic.
In 2011, Hildebrand hunkered down in his Toronto apartment, writing and recording what would later become his second Foxes in Fiction full-length album entitled Ontario Gothic. The album, which is centered around the idea of loss, finds Hildebrand looking back at the past five years while living in Toronto and the powerful experiences that took place during that time.
Ontario Gothic will be released on September 23 via Orchid Tapes. View and listen to the preview track 'Shadow's Song' using the link above.
