Tim Presley's White Fence share the title track from the upcoming album "I Have to Feed Larry's Hawk" Out 25th January 2019 via Drag City records. Gliding past ghostly statues of mythic entities and through the mist into the present world, Tim Presley's White Fence shed their multicolored-shroud for a heartfelt yet enigmatic, cycle of songs about losing the thing that's killing you that you love in order to gain the thing that makes you love what you love, with loads of Heartbreakers and other new pop classix.

WATCHING JAMES YORKSTON 'SHALLOW' (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN
James Yorkston 'The Route to the Harmonium'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Having recently announced news of his new album The Route to the Harmonium due for release on Feb 22nd 2019 via Domino - James Yorkston is shares a second track from the forthcoming record. Watch the Sam Wisternoff directed video above. 

On ‘Shallow’, James sings: “There are years, there are still years, that could have been ours..."

This feeling of times gone by, times missed, times that are no longer possible, is echoed elsewhere on The Route to the Harmonium - friends and family, past and present, those that have remained and those who have left is the strongest thread running through the album. The Route to the Harmonium is James’ first solo album since 2014’s CRAWS, and is produced by himself alongside David Wrench. Whilst ‘Shallow’ is a poetic ballad, indicative in part of the classic Yorkston sound, the album also has three thrilling spoken-word pieces including the previously shared ‘My Mouth Ain’t No Bible’.

The album was almost entirely recorded by James himself, in the small Scottish fishing village of Cellardyke, where he lives. The Route to the Harmonium (or, ‘the search for peace’) is intensely personal; it’s the sound of home, of undisturbed craftmanship. Childhood and youth, those summers in West Cork, ‘just family, just brothers’ – that sense of adventure hums throughout. Listen closely and you can imagine him putting it together. Overlaying vocal and guitar tracks, adding further with Dulcitones, harmoniums and autoharps, with nyckelharpa, the distinctive Swedish stringed instrument given to him by a friend. This is Yorkston’s world and could be nowhere else in music.

Rustin Man 'Drift Code'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE


Rustin Man aka Paul Webb is pleased to share a second track from his forthcoming album Drift Code – to be released on February 1st via Domino. Watch the Edwin Burdis directed video above. 

On ‘Judgement Train’, which Webb describes as “the Marx Brothers in a musical version of Apocalypse Now,” he casts himself as a man playing poker with God on a train. “He is a bit of a cheat and a chancer, confident he can outwit God to win his place in Heaven. As it develops he realises it’s not going so well and God has cunningly switched places with the devil. By the end, the guy has been out-played and realises he actually has a lot in common with the devil. I like to think it has a happy ending!”

Webb, formerly the bass player in Talk Talk, has released one record under the moniker Rustin Man so far, the superb Out Of Season in 2002 - a collaboration with Beth Gibbons of Portishead. He has been working on the follow-up ever since, recording it in his home, a converted barn, in an Essex field three miles from the nearest village, an extraordinary building as much Old Curiosity Shop as modern living space. Creating that, and raising two daughters with his wife Sam, was happening alongside the making of Drift Code.

This is the first time Paul has written songs specifically for his own voice, and he turns out to be a gifted character actor, adopting various vocal roles across the songs, as heard on ‘Judgement Train’ and the previously shared ‘Vanishing Heart’.

Fat White Family 'Feet'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Following the announcement of Serfs Up!, their third album and their first for new label Domino, Fat White Family have shared the video to Feet, a suitably grandiose work directed by C.C. Wade which perfectly matches the overwhelming scope and ambition of the track.

Having released their second album, Songs For Our Mothers in January 2016, core-members Lias and Nathan Saoudi relocated to Sheffield and set about writing the album. Joined by co-conspirator Saul Adamczewski and recorded at their own Champzone studios in the Attercliffe area of the city, Serfs Up! was finished in late autumn 2018 with the help of long-time collaborator, Liam D. May and features a guest appearance from Baxter Dury on Tastes Good With The Money.

Serfs Up! is a lush and masterful work, lascivious and personal. Tropical, sympathetic and monumental. It invites the listener in rather than repel them through wilful abrasion. Fat White Family have broken previous default patterns of behaviour, and as such their third album heralds a new day dawning. Where once they soundtracked a grubby Britain of vape shops, Fray Bentos dinners and blackened tin-foil, a crepuscular comedown realm stalked by Shipman, Goebbels and Mark E. Smith, Fat White Family now inhabit another cosmos entirely. Serfs Up! is the product of a band of outlaws reborn. Few but themselves could have forecast it: Fat White Family survived. Fat White Family got wise. Fat White Family got sophisticated.

Cherry Glazerr have shared the latest cut from their upcoming album 'Stuffed and Ready' Out 1st Of February via Secretly Canadian. Accompanying the new single is a gothic and hellish music video which can be watched above.

On 'Wasted Nun', Clementine Creevy (lead singer) explains “Wasted Nun” is about a woman trying to come to grips with her life. She’s a tragic woman. She hates herself and is trying to move through the world but gets deflated by extreme self-loathing. She wants to harness the power of the universe but instead she turns to self-destruction. The song is aggressive and intense because I’m letting out my anger, I’m enraged. People want girls to be strong, I want to be strong, but I just feel angry, and those are two very different things. There’s a stubbornness there, I know.'

Director Jessica Collins describes the video: “Music, blood, blades, babes. Sometimes anger looks like a weird beautiful demon nun that wants to rip right through you! You’re not sure how she’ll do it, but you know you want her to! The soft and sharp of brutality makes you want to bite down on something and rip it off! RIP IT UP! DO SOMETHING!

Stuffed & Ready follows Cherry Glazerr’s Secretly Canadian debut Apocalipstick, an album that sizzled with Creevy’s confidence, vision and fiercely idiosyncratic personality. When Creevy began writing Stuffed & Ready, she found unexpected inspiration by turning inward. Her unblinking honesty attempts to reconcile confusion and anger in the current political climate.

Serfs Up! is Fat White Family’s third album and their first for new label Domino. Released on Friday 19th April 2019 it marks the most gratifying and unexpected creative volte face in recent musical history. The band have today shared the first track to be taken from the album, Feet, a triumphant return which perfectly heralds the overwhelming musical scope and ambition of the album.  Listen to Feet HERE.

Having released their second album, Songs For Our Mothers in January 2016, core-members Lias and Nathan Saoudi relocated to Sheffield and set about writing the album. Joined by co-conspirator Saul Adamczewski and recorded at their own Champzone studios in the Attercliffe area of the city, Serfs Up! was finished in late autumn 2018 with the help of long-time collaborator, Liam D. May and features a guest appearance from Baxter Dury on Tastes Good With The Money.

Serfs Up! is a lush and masterful work, lascivious and personal. Tropical, sympathetic and monumental. It invites the listener in rather than repel them through wilful abrasion. Fat White Family have broken previous default patterns of behaviour, and as such their third album heralds a new day dawning.

Gregorian chants, jackboot glam beats, string flourishes, sophisticated and lush cocktail exotica, electro funk and the twin spirits of Alan Vega and Afrika Bambaataa punctuate the record at various junctures, while the dramatic production of Feet is as immaculately-rendered as ‘Hounds of Love’-era Kate Bush. The dirt is still there of course, but scrape it away and you’ll find a purring engine, gleaming chrome.

Where once they soundtracked a grubby Britain of vape shops, Fray Bentos dinners and blackened tin-foil, a crepuscular comedown realm stalked by Shipman, Goebbels and Mark E. Smith, Fat White Family now inhabit another cosmos entirely. Serfs Up! is the product of a band of outlaws reborn. Few but themselves could have forecast it: Fat White Family survived.

SASAMI 'SASAMI'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Los Angeles-based artist SASAMI has announces her self-titled debut album with the release of a video for its lead single, Jealousy. Watch above.

On the video, SASAMI says, The whole ‘Jealousy’ video was born out of inspiration from the scene “Bruce Vs Chocolate Cake” from the 1996 film adaptation of Roald Dahl’s ‘Matilda’. I wanted it to be kind of like a filmed version of a weird play. I am a witch creature and my sidekick, Gobby, and I dance in our painted backdrop lair and plot mischief. Luckily our havoc bears liberating ends as the bewitched are released of their socially-expected, self-imposed obsessions and rituals. I wanted to make something grotesque and creepy and funny, of course.” 

Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Sasami Ashworth, aka SASAMI, wrote the album's ten tautly melodic rock tracks over the course of a year on tour, playing keys and guitar with Cherry Glazerr.  Originating as a string of demos she recorded straight to her iPad whilst on tour with Cherry Glazerr, the songs poured out of Ashworth in stream-of-consciousness fashion, tracking the thrills, disappointments, and non-starters of a year spent newly single and on the road. In many ways, though, they were the culmination of decades of hard work. 

Just like her notoriously irreverent stage banter, Ashworth notes that her relationship to music, and to playing instruments, "comes from a place of love and playfulness and joy" - and it's something you can hear at every moment of SASAMI. But if SASAMI tells a story, it's one about the surprising ways that one's relationships - with lovers, with friends, with oneself - can shift in a single year.

Steve Mason shared the video to Walking Away From Love, the latest track to be taken from his forthcoming new album, About The Light, which is out on Double Six on Friday 18th January 2019. The video was directed by Edwin Burdis and shot on location in The Gambia. 

About The Light is his fourth solo album following Boys Outside (2010), Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time (2013) and Meet The Humans (2016).  Having written most of his previous albums alone, About The Light marks a change in approach for Steve.  “I decided with this album that I wanted to get my live band involved at every stage because I wanted to capture the energy that we produce when we play live shows, so this time the band and myself worked on a collection of songs over the course of last year,” he explains.

Picking Stephen Street to produce the album, and with a very clear plan in mind, from the off the goal was to capture the songs live and draw out their soulful elements. Recorded at studios in London and Brighton, About The Light, sees a subtle yet noticeable evolution in Steve’s sound.

“When I listen to this album it feels and sounds like the first ‘legitimate’ record that I have ever made. It’s hard to explain but it sounds like a ‘real’ album. I think that is partly the production, the playing and the work that I did with the band for all those months in our rehearsal room on the South Coast,” says Steve. “It’s a beautiful, confident, positive, angry, loving and gentle album which once again moves what I do forward,” he adds.  “David Bowie said that you should always be slightly out of your comfort zone if you want to achieve greatness, and for the first time perhaps ever, I deliberately pushed myself into that place. Who doesn’t want greatness?”

Los Angeles-based artist SASAMI has released a video for ‘Not The TimeGorilla vs Bear premiered the video today, calling it a "vibrant and charming video for her sweetly buzzing new single". Co-directed by Kate Hollowell and Sasami Ashworth, the video features the LA Municipal Dance Squad and The Linda Lindas as SASAMI’s backing band. Last month, The FADER called ‘Not The Time’ a fully-formed, heart-striking gem”, hailing SASAMI as “rock's next big thing”

SASAMI (Sasami Ashworth) has been making music in the Los Angeles area, in almost every way you can, for the last decade. From playing French horn in orchestras and studios and playing keys, bass, and guitar in local rock bands (Cherry Glazerr, Dirt Dress), to contributing vocals/string/horn arrangements to studio albums (Curtis Harding, Wild Nothing, Hand Habits) and producing on tracks for other respected artists (Soko), she has gained a reputation as an all-around musical badass. 

After graduating from the Eastman School of Music in 2012, SASAMI spent her time scoring and making orchestral arrangements for films, commercials and studio albums, as well as being a deeply committed music teacher in Los Angeles. She spent the previous two and a half years touring the world non-stop playing synths in the band Cherry Glazerr and is now taking a turn to focus on her own music. SASAMI has already shared bills with the likes of Mitski, Japanese Breakfast, Liz Phair, The Breeders and Blondie.

DAN DEACON 'TIME TRIAL SOUNDTRACK' OUT 30TH NOVEMBER 2018 (DOMINO PUBLISHING)

DOMINO ALL-IN
Dan Deacon 'Time Trial Soundtrack'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE


Dan Deacon’s second revelatory release for the Domino Soundtracks imprint, Time Trial, transmits new spectrums of sound from a universe parallel to, yet distinct from, his electronic-pop output. Zooming in on the inner life of the solitary on-screen struggle captured in director Finlay Pretsell’s visceral documentary of the same name, Deacon’s score amplifies dreams of redemption and fleeting bursts of elation that grind against punishing environs, ghosts of the past, and the physical limits of the human body. Recently nominated for the "Outstanding Achievement in ​Original Music Score” at the 2018 Cinema Eye Honors, Time Trial is not only one of the year’s essential soundtrack releases, but a major work of modern electronic composition.

The album is as fully formed and flawlessly sequenced as any of Deacon’s albums, yet never bound to his pop persona—even if its exultant moments, like closing track “Finlay’s Anthem,” are unmistakably the work of the mastermind behind America and Gliss Riffer. From the swelling, cacophonous build of “The Melee” and steady adrenal pulse of “The Breakaway” to the creeping dread of “Worse Times” and deep chill of “Charlie I Can’t Feel My Hands,” Time Trial is a challenging, resonant, and deeply rewarding record that discovers hard-worn truth and beauty in broken dreams and collapse.

A few months after “Ring” Michelle Blades changes gears with “Kiss Me On The Mouth”, an unpredictable, intense and graceful single that came to being during several soundchecks on tour. The Mexican-Panamanian artist presents a bitter-sweet track that presents a character trying to persuade themselves of an innocence long lost while analyzing the vices of those around them. Filmed in Mexico City, the music video was directed by the collective Fuerza Basicas and feature Michelle Blades dressed in multiple outfits, picturing the redundancy of the day-to-day experienced with different disguises. Watch above.

A self-taught artist, a multi-instrumentist, Michelle Blades reveals a discography infused with multiple sounds as an extension of her nomadic life spent between Panama, where she was born; Mexico, land of her mother’s family; Florida where she escaped from Manuel Noriega’s dictatorship, Arizona, where the young woman met underground and alternative culture and France for a music career spanning over ten years. Between 2015 and 2016, Michelle Blades has released with Midnight Special Records the LP Ataraxia and two Eps: Nah See Ya and Polylust. In the past years, she toured in several countries with French artist Fishbach as a bassist where she still found the time to record a new EP: Premature Love Songs, released in 2017.

“Kiss Me On The Mouth” gives yet another taste of Visitor, Michelle Blades’ new album, out on March, 29th on Midnight Special Records.

Julia Holter released her fifth acclaimed album last month, the dazzling Aviary. An epic journey through what Holter describes as “the cacophony of the mind in a melting world”; it is full of startling turns and dazzling instrumental arrangements whilst still clinging to a sense of radical hope, even in its most sombre moments. Julia is pleased to share the video for ‘Whether’

As with the videos for ‘Words I Heard’ and ‘I Shall Love 2’, Dicky Bahto takes on directorial duties. He says of the collaboration:

“When Julia asked me to make a video for Whether, she said that I should “have fun with it”. I decided to indulge in my love of hand-worked darkroom techniques. Exposing 16mm film prepared with cyanotype solution to the light of the sun on my balcony every afternoon over a couple of weeks, making the work in small pieces, meant that as the fires in Southern California darkened the sky with smoke, my exposures took increasingly long amounts of time to get images ever more faint. Julia wanted me to share this anecdote, since it fits the dystopian theme of the song, which is about the world collapsing around us because of climate change.”

“Aviary is Holter’s best album to date. Accomplished in almost every way, what happens next could be breathtaking” Record Collector 4* New Album of the Month.
