One third of Test Icicles, Sam Mehran, releases a collection of works. Whilst his former band mates (Rory Atwell andDev Hynes) have been producing and working on counteless high-profile side projects, we've been privately enjoying Sam Mehran's intrepid foray into his alter ego Outer Limitz notably with the song I Kontakt. Now dropping the Z in favour of an S, Sam launches a full public assault by consolidating his Singles, Demos & Rarities into one edition for you all to enjoy as well.
'I feel like I have many stories ahead of me. Over the past few years I've learnt that people are people and music is music and I can't really judge or say I believe deep down that one this is genuinely better than another, Life is just so crazy. I used to think I was an alien, but Earth has been such an epic experience that I'm now glad to call it home. But who knows, maybe one day I'll leave and realize that home was some place else.'Sam Mehran
This compilation represents the perfect portal into a special artistic imagination, a thrilling outsider-art artefact and even more reason for excitement regarding whatever Mehran dreams up next.
A video montage first released in 2011 using the music of Domino Publishing's White Rainbow. The video was directed by Domino's very own Jib Kidder who releases the album ' Teaspoon To The Ocean' on 26th January 2015.
How to Dress Well has recorded a song with London artist TALA as part of the ongoing Yours Truly/Adidas Originals series "Songs From Scratch." The premise is that two artists conceive & complete a collaborative song in a day's studio time.

Formed in 2012 by core members Ryan Needham (Komakino) and Liza Violet (Department M), Leeds-based band Menace Beach are considered to be a bit of an indie supergroup. With a rotating cast of notable auxiliary members that frequently includes Nestor Matthews (Sky Larkin), MJ (Hookworms), and Matt Spalding (You Animals), they blend fuzzed-out '90s-style indie with big melodic pop. They made their debut in 2012 with the Dream Out EP on French label Desire, followed a year later by a single on the London-based Too Pure label. Their reputation grew quickly and, with only those two releases to their credit, they were covered in NME, Drowned in Sound, and The Guardian and recorded a session for BBC Radio 6. Following the release of their second EP, 2014's Lowtalker, they signed with Memphis Industries, which released their debut album, Ratworld.
All We Are have shared the track ‘Stone’ taken from their forthcoming eponymous debut album on 2nd February 2015. A standout track from the album, ‘Stone’ features a haunting vocal performance from bassist Guro Gikling that builds to an exhilarating end.
Torn Hawk is the project of audiovisual artist Luke Wyatt. Wyatt first gained notoriety for his "Video Mulch", creating innovative visual work for the label Peoples Potential Unlimited and artists like Autre Ne Veut and Mi Ami.
The acclaimed "Tarifa" 12", released on L.I.E.S. in 2012, debuted the distinctive Torn Hawk soundtrack-ready aesthetic of emotive guitars and smeared beats. The tracks sounded like the audio equivalent of confessional watercolors, framed with cinderblocks and distressed leather. This was followed by a prolific two years, with releases appearing on labels including Not Not Fun, Rush Hour’s “No Label”, 1080p, and Wyatt's own imprint Valcrond Video.
"Let’s Cry And Do Pushups At The Same Time" (Mexican Summer, 2014) is the most recent full-length statement from Torn Hawk, and marks the onset of a more emotionally manipulative and sonically confident direction.
