Highly interactive and elegantly produced, it mirrors Frànçois Marry’s creativity towards his music perfectly. Heavily involved in the making of the app, Frànçois introduces the app below and offers a demonstration HERE.

Double Six is proud to announce the release of ‘Feel Safe’, the first single from Liverpool based 3-piece, All We Are, on 5th May 2014. Listen to the track, HERE.

All We Are, consist of Richard 'O Flynn (drums, vocals - from Ireland), Guro Gikling (bass, vocals - from Norway) & Luis Santos (guitar, vocals - from Brazil), and self-released the single ‘Utmost Good’ which was considered one of 2013’s most promising debuts and precipitated a European tour with Warpaint and their eventual signing to Domino affiliate, Double Six.

The Dan Carey-produced ‘Feel Safe’ showcases the band’s fondness for perfectly formed and simple song structure, whilst deftly treading a line between exuberance and intimacy. The atmospheric track is complimented by Carey’s ambient production that results in a curious mix of the pleasant and the uneasy.

SMALL ENGINE REPAIR OUT 27TH JANUARY 2014

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Serve Yourself'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

 

If you wanted to know about Small Engine Repair you could do worse than start with their name. That suggestion of containment, care and attention, recycling rather than obsolescence, being comfortable with not being the biggest or the most powerful; all of these are qualities that run through the band’s intricate and beautifully poised music.

Shot through with Americana but removed from copyism, ‘Serve Yourself’ delivers twelve songs that encompass the singalong hookworm of its title track, the observational, spoken word ‘God’s Given Up On Him’ and the self-referential dark comedy of ‘Pretty Hateful’. The understatement that permeates the tracks is decisive and deliberate, an indication of the maturity of this bunch of twenty-somethings. Instrumentation is used sparingly and intelligently throughout to create an album rich in primary melody. As Tom notes ‘The songs are strong with guitar and voice so as a band we want to reinforce that rather than take away from it’

Such care to attention applies to the recording of ‘Serve Yourself’. Eschewing the interest that came with a very limited EP release in 2011, Small Engine Repair chose to record and produce the album themselves, Tom taking the lead role in a home that rapidly became a studio, a journey that reinforces the purity of the creative vision at the heart of the band. 
 The concept of music as an emotive force retains at least one set of subscribers here and points to the likes of Daniel Johnston, Elbow, Nick Cave and Eels as artists who share Small Engine Repair's DNA.

‘Serve Yourself’ is released on ‘iLabel via Hit Music Co on 27th January 2014.

COOL STUFF

A range of special edition releases listed below will be sold exclusively through independent outlets around the country.

Julia Holter – ‘Don't Make Me Over’ by Dionne Warwick and ‘Hello Stranger’ 7”

Julia Holter's 7" single features a brand new, full band studio recording of her version of ‘Don't Make Me Over’, a song originally performed by Dionne Warwick and written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David. The AA-side is ‘Hello Stranger’, another cover (this time of Barbara Lewis) and one of the highlights of last year's much-lauded Loud City Song album. The single's beautiful artwork was designed by long-time Holter collaborator Rick Bahto.

Hamilton Leithauser – ‘Alexandra’ and ‘In The Shallows’ B-side 7”

Having announced his debut solo album Black Hours via Ribbon Music (Domino) on May 5th, Hamilton Leithauser is marking a new chapter in his career, beginning by releasing a special double-sided 7” for Record Store Day.

‘Alexandra’’, the first track to be taken from Black Hours , will be available on 7” vinyl. The B-side will be ‘In The Shallows’, a brand new track recorded during Hamilton’s album sessions. Guests across the two tracks include Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend), Morgan Henderson (Fleet Foxes), Paul Maroon (The Walkmen), Richard Swift (The Shins/solo) and Hugh McIntosh from Leithauser’s first band, The Recoys.

 Steve Mason – The Greg Wilson & Derek Kaye Remixes 12”

Monkey Minds In the Devil’s Time is an album that has been shaped by the current global political climate and the lack of dissenting voices in music and popular culture in general.  The righteous, undaunted anger at the heart of the album has helped to create Mason’s best record to date. Now Steve Mason is releasing a special two-track 12” featuring remixes of ‘Seen It All Before’ and ‘Come to Me’ which both feature on last year’s Monkey Minds In the Devil’s Time. Remixes are courtesy of Greg Wilson and Derek Kaye.

Villagers – Occupy Your Mind 7”

Having won Ireland’s prestigious Meteor Choice Music Prize for their album {Awayland} last month, Villagers are set to release their new; James-Ford produced single ‘Occupy Your Mind’ on limited edition clear vinyl on Record Store Day.

Nature Noir sees The Stilts honing in on their various affinities at once. Simulcast from different pools of the past, bridging and expanding their intensive tastes in soul, folk, psych, country, proto-punk and onward, it’s apparent that their new formulary is more subtle and fully realized than ever. Like any creation worth loving, it’s the quality of the ingredients and the unique perspective lenses of the creators that produce a marvel such as this. Pleasingly distilled in celestial darkness, floating in a sea of color drenched dreams, and grounded in protean mythology, Crystal Stilts third LP sounds refreshingly bold and deep rooted within the current musical climate.

Jessy Lanza's debut album 'Pull My Hair Back', co-written and co-produced with Jeremy Greenspan from Junior Boys, is a 2013 flagship for what electronic pop could sound like, stripped of bloated, behaviourist impulses that treat listeners like lab rats. It's graceful and erotic without the gratuitous close ups, icey and sensual, sweet without rotting your teeth, emotional but with enough blue glow to pull your heart strings.

Released on Hyperdub, 'Pull My Hair Back' was co-produced and co-written by Junior Boys' Jeremy Greenspan. This moody first single from the LP is accompanied by a video that features someone named "Jed the dancing guy", shot in the Canadian town of Hamilton.
