Conor O’Brien announces the release of Villagers’ fourth studio album, The Art Of Pretending To Swim, released by Domino on Friday 21st September. Watch the video for 'A Trick Of Light' above.                                            

Following the exquisitely sparse, intimate aura of 2015’s Darling Arithmetic, O’Brien’s new record reconnects with the multi-faceted approach of Villagers’ 2010 album debut Becoming A Jackal and 2013’s {Awayland} while adding a new-found soulfulness, rhythmic nous and dazzling panoply of sonic detail, both analogue and digital, creating feverish moods while writing effortlessly accessible tunes. Balanced with subtle aspects and lyrical themes that embrace existential fears and hopes in this desperate, technologically-centred dystopian age, The Art Of Pretending To Swim is the most brilliantly realised Villagers album to date. The album was written, produced, mixed and primarily performed by Conor O’Brien in his Dublin studio.

The video for ‘A Trick of the Light’, the first single from the album, was directed by Bob Gallagher. Conor says of the collaboration:

Myself and Bob got together and discussed the song thematically and came to the conclusion that there was no other option but to make a short film in which we follow a dishevelled shamanistic protagonist who mysteriously triggers an altered state of consciousness in everyone he meets, or at least believes that he does. We also wanted lots of dancing and to inspire a general feeling of "what the hell did I just watch?" in the viewer.

O’Brien has a string of accolades under his belt including two Ivor Novello Awards (the most recent being 2016’s Album Award for Darling Arithmetic), two Mercury Music Prize nominations and is also a previous winner of Ireland’s Choice Music Prize. Additionally, Villagers’ music recently featured in the high profile HBO drama ‘Big Little Lies’, Conor has collaborated with the composer Nico Muhly (that track featuring in the forthcoming Paulo Sorrentino Berlusconi biopic ‘Loro 2’) and Villagers’ Spotify session of ‘Nothing Arrived’ has hit over 100 million streams.

SEAMUS FOGARTY 'THE OLD SUIT' OUT 2ND NOVEMBER 2018 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

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.”

MR MITCH 'PRIMARY PROGRESSIVE EP' OUT 26TH OCTOBER 2018 (DOMINO PUBLISHING)

Mr. Mitch announces his return with a five-track EP of new tracks, ‘Primary Progressive’ will be released on the 26th October via Gobstopper records. Watch the Ross Aitken directed video for track 'Settle' above. 

‘Primary Progressive’ looks inward to Mitch’s own life experiences for inspiration, forming its own, thoughtful counter to the quiet happiness explored in his music over the last four years. ‘Primary Progressive’ also marks an excursion from the sugary, delicate, away-from-the-club tropes Mitch has pushed both via his own productions and from producers like Orlando and Odeko on Gobstopper. Returning to the dancefloor via the crisp, dancehall twang of tracks like ‘Settle’ and the brooding ‘Phantom Dance’, Mitch proves that he still has a tight grip on making the club both move and think.
