Domino are thrilled to mark the return of Georgia with her new single, “Mellow” feat. Shygirl. “Mellow” is the first release from Georgia since 2017’s “Feel It” and sees Georgia honing her deft production craft, moving towards a deeply euphoric and seductive exploration into the underground club sound. Listen above. 

Mixed by David Wrench with programming from Ragz Originale, “Mellow” features a vocal collaboration from Shygirl, who is part of the London-based collective, NUXXE.As Georgia notes, with the club sound of “Mellow”, Shygirl’s fierce vocal addition is “perfect, edgy & almost non-human like, as if she's the voice of your hedonistic sub conscience!" Since the 2015 release of her self-titled debut LP, Georgia has been busy in the studio and out, with guest features on tracks by Honne, alongside taking on producer duties for a number of other acts and working on her own set of new recordings. 

The artwork for “Mellow” features the photograph ‘Marie Clair & Anna, 12, after Daisy’s Slumber Party 1991’ by renowned, influential American documentary and portrait photographer, Nancy Honey. The image is from her series of photographs entitled ‘Entering The Masquerade’ published by the National Museum of Photography Film & Television in 1992.

LOWER DENS 'GALAPAGOS' OUT 20TH AUGUST 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO PUBLISHING
Lower Dens 'Galapagos'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Four years since their critically acclaimed album, Escape From Evil, Lower Dens recently announced their newest creation -- The Competition -- which will be released on Ribbon Music on September 6th.  Lower Dens share a third taste of the album in the form of a glistening, synth-pop careen called “Galapagos.” Listen above.

Lower Dens also recently announced they will be hitting the road upon the album’s release supporting Of Monsters And Men in addition to three very special release shows in Los Angeles and Baltimore respectively.  All dates are below.

The Competition is a pop album with a concept both emotionally and politically urgent. By design, competition is the driving force of modern capitalism, and the title is lead singer and songwriter Jana Hunter’s (pronouns: they/them, him/his) term for a socio-psychological phenomenon this generates, a kind of psychosis that accelerates our insecurities and anxieties to the point of total overload, corroding our intimacies, our communities, and our senses of self.

Hunter says, “The issues that have shaped my life, for better or for worse, have to do with coming from a family and a culture that totally bought into this competitive mindset.  I was wild and in a lot of pain as a kid; home life was very bleak, and pop songs were a guaranteed escape to a mental space where beauty, wonder, and love were possible.  I wanted to write songs that might have the potential to do that.”

Indeed, The Competition might be Hunter’s most vulnerable, hook-filled album yet, a leftfield, resistance pop record that could only be released in 2019.

MICHAELA ANNE 'DESERT DOVE' OUT 27TH SEPTEMBER 2019 (DOMINO PUBLISHING/YEP ROC)

Michaela Anne 'Desert Dove'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE
 
Michaela Anne is proud to debut 'By Our Design', the single is the newest from her upcoming album Desert Dove, out September 27th on Yep Roc Records. Watch the video above.
 
Recorded over the course of several weeks in San Clemente, California, Desert Dove was completed “on location” with the help of an all-star cast. Producers Sam Outlaw and Delta Spirit’s Kelly Winrich assembled guitarist Brian Whelan (Dwight Yoakam, Jim Lauderdale), fiddler Kristin Weber (Kacey Musgraves, Margo Price), and drummers Mark Stepro (Ben Kweller, Butch Walker) and Daniel Bailey (Everest, Father John Misty) to address this batch of songs with a fresh take, not leaning too hard on traditional arrangements or instrumentation. “Child of the Wind” is a great example of this; using a chunky, fuzzy electric guitar in place of what could have been a pedal steel or fiddle intro, adding sonic and tonal variables to the breadth of Michaela Anne’s range of characters and motifs.
 
Amidst the ups and downs of Desert Dove, there is a recurring focus on the emotions that fall in between peaks and valleys. “This record, for me, highlights the gray area, the nuance of emotional life and relationships that seems to be harder to convey in today’s modes of communication and limited attention spans: short excerpts on Instagram or Twitter paragraphs,” says Michaela Anne. “Nothing is black and white, solely good or bad. Who we are, how we live, how we love, what we desire or reject, it’s all full of contradictions and confusions. I wanted to explore that through my songs with care, depth, reality as well as light-heartedness, fun and fantasy.”
 
Michaela Anne also attacks most of the album with a sharp feminine perspective, dealing out wisdom, confidence, and sass with authority and maturity that is never tiresome. The easiest example of this is Michaela Anne’s light-hearted rebuttal to condescension and “mansplaining” with “If I Wanted Your Opinion,” but her stance drives deeper with each new song, all the way through the end of Desert Dove. “When I got to Nashville, I was told the ‘rules’ of songwriting,” Michaela recounts. “I was informed that a woman in a country song can never be the victim, but she can also never be the perpetrator. That’s not real life. As a woman, sometimes you’re everything all at once, and I wanted to write about those real experiences.”

Jack Klatt has announced the release of his eagerly awaited new album. IT AIN'T THE SAME arrives everywhere via Yep Roc Records on Friday, September 27. It Ain't the Same is preceded by the premiere of a raucous new single "Prove My Love"; the track is joined by an equally rockin' companion video, co-starring Minneapolis-based artist Alberta Mirais, watch above.

"'Prove My Love' is a pure and simple rock n' roll song about the push and pull of romance," says Klatt. "What beer way to visually capture the joy and chaos of love then two people dancing together? We shot the video on the night of the summer solstice at a fabrication shop that I work at in North East Minneapolis
when I'm not on the road. It was a hot night and many beverages were consumed while me and Alberta Mirais danced the night into day. I couldn't dream of doing something like this with anyone but her. She is most assuredly the star of the show."

Hailed by Rift Magazine for "great songs with witty lyrics" and "one helluva guitarist to boot," Klatt will herald IT AIN'T THE SAME with an array of upcoming live dates, beginning with an August run alongside Parker Millsap and then followed in September by a series of dates supporting Pokey LaFarge.

O'FLYNN 'ALETHIA' OUT 6TH SEPTEMBER 2019 (DOMINO PUBLISHING/SUNDAY BEST)

O'Flynn 'Alethia'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

London based producer and DJ O’Flynn has announced his debut album ‘Aletheia’, to be released 6th September 2019 on Silver Bear Recordings, and shared the second single ‘Painted Wolf’, out 21st June 2019. Listen to Painted Wolf above. 

His latest release follows a series of acclaimedproductions which explored his wide-ranging style:from squelchy acid on Ninja Tune to loose and luscious jazz on Blip Discs, as well as the high-octane 12” released on his own Hundred Flowers imprint earlier this year. With his new single O’Flynn honesin on the expansive electronica style found on his previous 12” single, ‘Sunspear’. Continuing his recontextualisation of evocative world music samples combinedwith layers of percussion, O’Flynn builds a fluid but powerful energy on heady club cut ‘Painted Wolf’. Painted Wolf has been 4 years in the making. The longest I've ever taken to finish an idea. It was probably my follow up to Desmond’s Empire in terms of style. This is my attempt to deliver something new to the world."

With standout 12” debuts ‘Tyrion’ and ‘Desmond’s Empire’ in 2015, O’Flynn quickly established his reputation as “one of dance music’s most prosperous newcomers”, as put by Boiler Room. Having gained support from Four Tet, Gilles Peterson, Bonobo, Denis Sulta, James Blake and Hessle Audio and his debut album forthcoming, he continues his musical evolution to become a resonant force within dance music.

ONE TRUE PAIRING 'ONE TRUE PAIRING' OUT 20TH SEPTEMBER 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN
One True Pairing 'One True Pairing'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Tom Fleming will release his debut solo album under the guise One True Pairing. The former Wild Beasts songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist shared the first taste of his new direction earlier this month with “One True Pairing”, the titular track of the upcoming record. Watch the music video above. 

Today, Fleming is pleased to share the second song from the self-titled album, “I’m Not Afraid”. With its refrain - “We’ve been kicked our whole lives and I’m not afraid, But I won’t go back down to that place again” - Tom sets his intention for One True Pairing.

“I wanted to write about the real world, I didn't want it to be an artistic, poised, tasteful record, it’s neo-heartland rock" says Tom Fleming. "One True Pairing is a name taken from internet fan fiction, where you write the perfect relationship you always wished existed. The idea of Prince Charming and Helpless Princess living happily after is no fun at all.”

Tom’s musical touchstones were Bruce Springsteen, Don Henley, Tom Petty alongside Depeche Mode and Swans. He wrote and played everything himself and then brought in Ben Hillier (Nadine Shah, Graham Coxon) on mixing and production duties.

One True Pairing is an album shaped by class frustration and self-despair and there is a continuation of the exploration of masculinity that made Wild Beasts so unique. As well as being deeply personal, OTP has a wider political resonance. "This country is going through a terrible moment and if you listen to the art nobody seems to give a shit,” Fleming says emphatically. He believes that class is entirely discounted from the current conversation about inclusivity and privilege. In its 11 songs of discordant guitar and aggressive synth Fleming channels his discontent with Britain in 2019 and a “feeling of directionless rage and cheatedness which hasn't gone away."

Anna Calvi is pleased to announce that she has written and performed the score for the entire new season of BBC One’s Peaky Blinders. Peaky Blinders had its season 5 premiere in Birmingham yesterday evening, where Anna Calvi joined the cast and director Anthony Byrne on the red carpet.

Previously a fan of the series, Calvi said on writing the original score: “This is a new thing for me but it was a really good fit, I love everything about the show. I completely immersed myself in it and became quite obsessed with the characters, especially Tommy Shelby [played by Cillian Murphy] and getting lost in his mind.” 

Anna adds: “There is a duality to the show, a beauty and a brutality, which I have been exploring in my own music and on the ‘Hunter’ album. I want to say thank you to the director Anthony Byrne for believing in me and letting me seek out what I needed to.”

Read Anna and Anthony’s exclusive interviews with NME here.

Anna Calvi’s first score for television follows the release of her critically acclaimed third album Hunter. Calvi is a previous Brit Award nominee and has been shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize twice.

WARMDUSCHER 'MIDNIGHT DIPPER' OUT 24TH JULY 2019 (DOMINO PUBLISHING)

GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Warmduscher’s release their new single 'Midnight Dipper' and announce their upcoming album 'Tainted Lunch' out 1st November 2019 via Leaf Label. Watch the video featuring Iggy Pop above. 

Do you know that sinewy young fellow ploughing his way though the fields? Why, it’s Walt Clipper, and he has something to say. An armful of methamphetamine and a satchel full of anabolic steroids, driving a seven-wheeled behemoth at light-speed along a crystal highway. He is that neural terrorist of unknowing wisdom. Your friend and mine. Won’t you hear his story?  

Let me tell you, morning is the time for breakfast and I am just in time for tea. ‘Midnight Dipper’ has set a new bar for myself, the altruistic lust-conduit, to leap over. I have attempted to raise my limp and worthless body from my chair several times in a futile bid to resume the dance of my forebears, but to no avail. I end up, still, a used tissue of a man, crumpled on the floor, calling for help. 

If Warmduscher’s music can do this to an individual such as myself, imagine what it will do when played live in the discotheques and dancehalls of Berlin, Paris, Ghent and Jalalabad… rammed music-halls around the globe will tremble and swell with rapturous applause. ‘Head pulled back, eyes closed tight…’, our magnificent orator, Clams Baker Jr. III commands, this is how you must listen, dear reader. This is how you must live. Dr. Alan Goldfarb, 2019.
