Speedy Ortiz announce their latest album 'Twerp Verse' out 27th April 2018 via Carpark Records. In addition to their announcement, the band share the first single “Lucky 88,” alongside the Emily Yoshida directed music video. Watch above.

"Lucky 88” expresses optimism that space can be made for more radical agendas and socialist voices. “For the video, we wanted something evil, glossy, cynical, and camp,” Dupuis explains. “Our director Emily Yoshida came up with a concept that addresses our reliance on technology and apps that’s so absorbing, it’s hard to engage with the outside world, even when it is literally being consumed by slime (and, hello, global warming, melting ice, coral bleaching, impending heat death, make no mistake, it IS being consumed by slime).” 

Speedy Ortiz is Sadie Dupuis on guitars, vocals, and synths, supporting guitarist Andy Molholt (of psych pop outfit Laser Background), Darl Ferm on bass and Mike Falcone on drums.

ALEXIS TAYLOR 'BEAUTIFUL THING' OUT 20TH APRIL 2018 (DOMINO RECORDINGS)

Alexis Taylor 'Beautiful Thing'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE


Beautiful Thing is the forthcoming solo album from Alexis Taylor and will be released on April 20th via Domino. Watch the Edwin Burdis directed video for 'Beautiful Thing' above. 

This is a musician, writer and singer who has carved his own unique path through the music of the 21st century, completely avoiding getting trapped along the way in dumb oppositions of pop vs avant-garde, dancefloor vs intellect, retro vs modernist and so on. He has worked with living legends from major pop stars to free improvisors in the furthest left field, played huge arenas and tiny clubs without ever privileging one over the other, and through all of it, never stopped listening and learning. All of this accumulated experience is put to work on Beautiful Thing in pursuit of something subtle and elusive but ultimately quite profound and beautifully human. 

With ‘Beautiful Thing’, Alexis combines experimental, clattering noises with crazed, disco lavishness and bug-eyed acid house momentum to create something giddy and glorious. The video is a suitably compelling counterpart.

The upcoming record is a bold and confident step forward for Alexis both sonically and in terms of his songwriting abilities. It has electronic thrills, dark spaces, memories of dancefloors, heartfelt writing; it's composed, it's improvised, it's accidental, it's strange, but it's also very immediate. It is a beautiful thing itself:  a moving, modern and unique sounding long-player, to get lost in on repeated deep listens.

UK composer, producer and songwriter Will Archer (formerly recording as Slime), has announced two songs, ‘Scarecrow’ and ‘Cures and Wounds’, his first new music of 2018. Watch the Katia Ganfield directed music video above.

The release follows last year's single ‘Like A Hunger ft. Amber Mark’ and Archer's 2015 album, Company, under his previous moniker, Slime. After composing and writing for the likes of Jessie Ware, Selah Sue and Jeramiah Jae, the release sees Archer shift focus back to his own work. ‘Scarecrow’ takes Archer’s prodigious musicality to a whole new level, moving from the languid, elusive soul of his earlier works towards a more dynamic, robust form of modern instrumental experimentation.

The track is composed of a number of different movements each of which see a different instrument take the lead, eventually building to a gorgeous crescendo. Both ‘Scarecrow’ and ‘Cures and Wounds’ were composed, arranged and produced by Wilma Archer.

Since forming in 2010, the duo has mounted 19 tours of the U.S., frequently opening for Future Islands, and sharing stages with such acts as No Age, Lightning Bolt, Matmos, and Ceremony. The Music Beat originally worked in a maximalist drums, bass, and vocals mode, releasing the noise-rock full-lengths Jazz Mind (Load Records, 2012), and Party Jail (Infinity Cat Recordings, 2014). Their song “Sermon” is used in the Adult Swim short Unedited Footage of a Bear, and “Rats” appears in Theo Anthony’s feature documentary Rat Film.

For their game-changing new record Riddles, Ed Schrader’s Music Beat has teamed with producer and co-writer Dan Deacon to broaden their sonic palette and explore the possibilities of the art-rock and alt-rock genres.

 Speaking about the video, Joan says: “The director, Brian Crano, and I became friends when I scored his upcoming feature Permission (released the same day as my album Damned Devotion). I asked him if he could suggest someone to shoot my video and within 5 minutes he had written me back an entire storyline himself. He used the fact that I enjoy creating personas as the basis for the video. I play a variety of characters; a glam queen, a chef who consumes her own heart, a (self-)interrogator, photographer, etc. Let’s just say at one point I wield a unicorn piñata glitter canon… Tell me tell me tell me what (else) do you want?'

Already acknowledged as a thrilling live performer and starkly honest lyricist, Damned Devotion, finds Joan Wasser at her rawest. “My maxim is: if it feels scary to say it, it’s the thing you must say”. And onDamned Devotion the thoughtful lyricism is married to her most accessible music to date.

Famously a collaborator and muse to artists as diverse as Anohni, Rufus Wainwright, Lou Reed and Beck, since the release of her last album Joan has worked alongside fashion designers Viktor & Rolf as well as a growing list of musicians including Sufjan Stevens, Lau, RZA and most recently Daniel Johnston.

On the eve of the release of new album Microshift, Hookworms have shared new the video for new track, ‘Each Time We Pass’. Featuring vocals from Alice Merida Richards from Virginia Wing, the track is a stand out from Microshift and marks one of the band's first fully collaborative pieces of music. The band’s long-time AV projectionist and video artist, Sam Wiehl has created the video to accompany the track which features 3D scans of the band, their friends and fans. Watch above.

On ‘Each Time We Pass’, the band have said:

“This track was the first time we have ever truly collaborated with an artist external to the band, in the most modern sense of the word. It was an extremely rewarding experience and it is one of the only Hookworms songs where I can happily stand back and admire it as it had been written by another band.” 

Microshift is the Leeds band's first new work in over 3 years and marks a seismic shift in their sound, dynamic, song-writing and production, whilst still bearing all the ferocious energy, intricate musicianship and bruised but beautiful song-craft of the previous releases which have quietly made them one of the UK's most revered young bands. Radiant, immersive and teeming with light, but still heavy and forceful.

Insecure Men share the video for I Don’t Wanna Dance (With My Baby), the latest track to be taken from their forthcoming self-titled debut album which is released on Friday 23rd February 2018 via Fat Possum.

The video, shot in Blackpool, was directed by  renowned London-based independent production team Sharp Payne (www.sharppayne.com). Talking about the video, director Jak payne said:

'Me and Saul had spoken about making videos that felt dated and kitsch, and kind of invoked this old British seaside culture. We found a kid's ballroom dancing competition up in Blackpool, and it worked with the style and lyrics of the song. I really liked the pageantry of the whole event, these 12 year olds dolled up in make-up and these very 70s, bright dresses. There's something bizarre and unsettling about it, it feels cartoonish in how exaggerated everyone’s out-fits and expressions are, which, I think, goes with the Insecure Men sound.'

The band, who at the end of last year were named as one of The Guardian’s artists to watch in 2018 recorded their album onto an ancient Tascam at Sean Lennon’s studio in upstate New York while Saul was working on the Moonlandingz album. It was subsequently produced by Sean and mixed by Marta Salogni.

Taking inspiration from the exotica of Arthur Lyman, the early electronic pop of Perrey and Kingsley, the supreme smoothness of The Carpenters, the songwriting chops of Harry Nilsson and the hypnagogic uncanniness conjured up by David Lynch it’s outwardly a charming exercise in timeless pop, exotica and easy listening however, there lurks a darker heart beneath the surface. As Saul says it’s “pretty music with a dark underbelly to it”.

GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Double Six and Domino Records are very proud to present All That Must Be, the second full length LP from George FitzGerald, due for release on 9th March 2018. With the announcement, FitzGerald has shared the album’s lead single, ‘Roll Back’ a collaboration with Lil Silva.

Watch the video directed by Hugo Jenkins (Blackdog) above.

All That Must Be is a record with its psychological roots in two cities - Berlin and London. It documents a period of time when FitzGerald’s decade-long stint in the German capital came to an abrupt end, seeing him back in his hometown of London and becoming a father for the first time. It was against this backdrop that All That Must Be started to form and the result is a record that deals with the processes of upheaval, change, acceptance and renewal that affect us all.

A mesmeric, transportive set of electronic songs, All That Must Be is a collection that is moving in both senses of the word. Featuring collaborations with Lil Silva, Bonobo and Tracey Thorn (Everything But The Girl), All That Must Be plots a route through the landscape, both mental and physical, of its creator over the course of 18 tumultuous months. “I wanted to mirror the uncanniness you feel when a massive event happens in your life”, explains FitzGerald,  “Everything looks and sounds the same but it’s somehow different. Your surroundings are less intelligible."

FitzGerald altered his creative process in the creation of the album, focusing more heavily on the piano as opposed to the computer and combining the electronic drums of previous album Fading Love with live percussion recorded in the studio. The result is a record with a very human pulse and an emotional maturity only hinted at when FitzGerald had his eyes and ears firmly set on the dancefloor.

To kick off 2018, Hookworms, have today shared the new video for ‘Static Resistance’ the latest track from their forthcoming album, Microshift, due for release on February 2nd 2018. Watch the video, directed by Ciaran Lyons , above.

 On ‘Static Resistance’, the band have said:

“Static Resistance is the oldest track on the album, we wrote and recorded the first version of it early 2015, not very long after The Hum had been released. It's one of only two pre-flood songs on the record. It’s a song about the wax and wane of depression and an eternal want to escape the life you’ve built.” 

Microshift is the Leeds band's first new work in over 3 years and marks a seismic shift in their sound, dynamic, song-writing and production, whilst still bearing all the ferocious energy, intricate musicianship and bruised but beautiful song-craft of the previous releases which have quietly made them one of the UK's most revered young bands.

Radiant, immersive and teeming with light, but still heavy and forceful - the music on Microshift acts as a very deliberate counter to some of the difficult topics the album's lyrics address. Death, disease, heartbreak, body image and even natural disaster are all present here but the overall effect these songs achieve is euphoric catharsis.

Franz Ferdinand have announced details of the release of ‘Feel The Love Go’, the latest track to be taken from Always Ascending, their forthcoming album which is being released by Domino on Friday the 9th of February. Watch above.

The track is accompanied by a stunning video by acclaimed director Diane Martel (www.diane-martel.com). The video, shot while the band were in Los Angeles on their recent US tour, has the feel of a public access TV religious show and sees Alex cast as an unhinged evangelical preacher.

Talking about the video Diane said: I’m excited to work with Franz for the third time! They are close friends and steller artists. I think this is their best album to date. Each song could be a single, it’s expansive musically, wonderfully produced and the lyrics are brilliant as usual. This new incarnation of the band is perfection! 

Always Ascending is the band’s fifth album and was recorded at RAK Studios, London and Motorbass in Paris, with the help of French producer extraordinaire Philippe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Beastie Boys). Nothing short of a rebirth, the album’s 10 songs are a triumphant recasting of the group, bursting with fresh ideas and vigorous sonic experimentation.

The band return to the UK in February for a tour which includes a show at London’s 02 Brixton Academy on Saturday the 24th of February. The band will be joined on the UK leg of the tour by Albert Hammond Jr.

Holiday Oscar unveils the video for his latest single on Sunday Best Records 'I Can't Keep Checking My Phone'. Watch above.

Wry observations, very much taken from everyday, modern life enveloped in a familiar and warm 70’s folk sound is the backdrop for much of the new material. Self- reflective story telling combined with beautifully composed arrangements has seen Holiday Oscar emerge from a productive year and the onset of 2018 portrays a visual montage of life since the the advent of the mobile phone in the accompanying video for new track; I Can’t Keep On Checking My Phone

“I like to tell myself that I Can't Keep Checking My Phone is just a silly song about smartphones. In that regard, the video is just another silly piece of content to feed the Internet. It's a fail compilation. It'd probably be more popular if I just put some royalty free dubstep over it."

Currently adding the final touches to new material set for release later this year through Sunday Best and following a host of live dates guesting on Amy McDonalds UK tour at the tail-end of 2017 confirms his first live outing of the year with a show at London’s St Pancras Old Church.
