CLINIC 'WHEELTAPPERS AND SHUNTERS' OUT 10TH MAY 2019 (DOMINO PUBLISHING)

DOMINO ALL-IN
Clinic 'Wheeltappers and Shunters'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

After a seven year break, Clinic, Liverpool’s cherished post-punk pop experimentalists return with album number eight, released on May 10th by Domino Records. The first track to be shared from Wheeltappers and Shunters is ‘Rubber Bullets’, watch the Joseph May directed music video above.

Wheeltappers and Shunters is neither a celebration nor a denigration of the culture of the era in which Blackburn and his collaborator-in-chief, Hartley, grew up. “It’s a satirical take on British culture - high and low,” explains Blackburn. “It fascinates me that people look back on the 1970s as the glory days. It’s emerged that there was a darker, more perverse side to that time. When you look back on it now it was quite clearly there in mainstream culture.”

The album was recorded last year in founding band member Hartley's Liverpool studio, before they brought in Dilip Harris (King Krule, Sons Of Kemet, Mount Kimbie) to mix it. “We thought it felt right to make a fun, dancefloor album in these dark and conservative times,” Blackburn continues. Fun, sure, but this is Clinic – their brand of fun oozes with menace. 

The Great Britain that Clinic are evoking is not that ancient, bucolic past of village green cricket, half a mild and hanky-waving Morris Dancers that many seem so determined that the country should return to, but a rather more sleazy past. Clinic’s reverie is for a time when Blackpool was the pleasure capital of the kingdom and the public was kept entertained by travelling circuses and the dirty glamour of the funfair; tacky end of the pier merriment and enforced fun at Butlins; when bell-ringing town criers bellowed their nonsensical broadsides into the ether.

Fontaines. D.C. have confirmed details for their anticipated debut LP. 'Dogrel' – the word referring to a crude, traditionally Irish working-class form of verse historically looked down upon by literary critics (establishment upper classes) – will come out April 12th via Partisan Records. Opening track “Big” offers an intense, driving, self-confident statement of intent, and is accompanied by a music video (directed by Molly Keane) shot on the streets of Dublin. Listen/watch above. 

Speaking about the video, the band says: “We felt that great ambition was a sickness, and we got Grian's 11 year next-door neighbor to say it to you all because he's got the presence of a hundred frontmen.

Ahead of release, Fontaines D.C. sat down with Irish musician/writer/radio producer Paul McLoone to discuss the origins and meaning behind ‘Dogrel,’ read more HERE.

Hayden Thorpe shares his debut solo single, “Diviner”, out 21st February 2019 on Domino. Watch the evocative video, directed by Crowns & Owls above. 

After leaving the bitter Lake District winter behind, where the decision had just been made for Wild Beasts to go their separate ways after over a decade together, “Diviner” was written under the perpetual blue skies of California. 

“Diviner became the first song and the divining rod for what was going to be next” Thorpe says,There are, if we can wait for them, rare days of alignment. Diviner was written on such a day, my birthday of all days. The curtains were drawn for a while, I went inside. To say I’m delighted to see daylight would be an understatement.” 

“Diviner” is a tender, euphonious track with burnished keys and serpentine voice, heralding a bright future for Thorpe.

Avey Tare, a.k.a Dave Portner of Animal Collective, has announced the new album Cows On Hourglass Pond, for release on March 22, 2019. The first song to be released from the forthcoming album is “Saturdays (Again)”. A video, directed by Abby Portner, can be watched above.

Cows On Hourglass Pond was recorded between January - March 2018 by Dave Portner at Laughing Gas in Asheville, NC on a Tascam 48 half-inch reel-to-reel tape machine. The album was mixed by Adam McDaniel and Dave Portner at drop of sun in Asheville, NC. 

"For the Saturdays (Again) video I wanted to try and create what it would look like inside Avey Tare's new record cover, if you were to step inside and hang out with Dave and the cows in a surreal, colorful landscape. Since I did parts of the record art and paintings in the press photos, I wanted it to all be included inside this video." Cows On Hourglass Pond follows the 2017 release of Avey Tare’s Eucalyptus, and 2018’s audiovisual album Tangerine Reef, a collaboration between Animal Collective and avant-garde coral macro-videographers Coral Morphologic.

Domino is extremely proud to present Henryk Górecki: Symphony No. 3 (Symphony of Sorrowful Songs) performed by Beth Gibbons and the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Krzysztof Penderecki. Both an audio and film recording of the performance will be available on 29th March 2019. Watch the trailer above.

The performance took place at The National Opera Grand Theatre in Warsaw on November 29th 2014, and was part of an evening of programming that also featured Jonny Greenwood's (Radiohead) 48 Responses To Polymorphia and the world premiere of Bryce Dessner's (The National) Réponse Lutosławski. 

Following an invitation to collaborate at the concert, Beth Gibbons undertook an intense preparation process, including tackling the challenge of learning the original text (and the emotional weight it carries) without speaking the mother language. Typical to Beth though - the elusive yet iconic frontwoman of one of the most important British bands of the last two decades - the challenge was met and exceeded. Her performance alongside the maestro Penderecki has been hailed as triumphant, as you can see and hear on this release. The film, was produced by the National Audiovisual Institute, Poland and directed by Michał Merczyński.

The North Carolina duo have built a steady and growing fanbase with this kind of intimacy, and on Tides of A Teardrop it is more potent than ever. By all accounts, it is the duo’s fullest, richest, and most personal effort.

Singer-songwriter Andrew Marlin and multi-instrumentalist Emily Frantz have honed this lamp glow intimacy for years.

Plastic Mermaids are a five-piece band from the Isle of Wight who's self-produced debut album ‘Suddenly Everyone Explodes’ is to be released on May 24th 2019 via Sunday Best Records. Watch the video for 'Floating In A Vaccuum' above. 

Following on from their latest  psychedelic pop single ‘1996’, which was warmly received by fans and critics alike (supported at radio by Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, BBC6 Music’s Lauren Laverne and Chris Hawkins), the band have now revealed a second track, ‘Floating in a Vacuum’, which is also taken from their much anticipated debut album. The video for ‘Floating In A Vacuum’ features spacemen on skateboards and aliens firing off streamers. Entirely conceptualised and produced by the band and remains true to their creative form. 

In terms of musical influences, fans of The Flaming Lips, Arcade Fire, Sparklehorse and Tame Impala will all find something to love in Plastic Mermaids’ richly-textured sound. The Flaming Lips’ influence is also evident in their ecstatic live show, which has manifested itself in a sparkly-gold-cape-clad choir, who have recently accompanied Plastic Mermaids on tour, and Patricia; a mannequin covered in mirror ball tiles who is often suspended above their stage set.

THESE NEW PURITANS 'INSIDE THE ROSE' OUT 22ND MARCH 2019 (DOMINO PUBLISHING)

DOMINO PUBLISHING
These New Puritans 'Inside The Rose'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

These New Puritans share details of their fourth studio album Inside The Rose, set for release on 22nd March 2019. Brutal and beautiful, Inside The Rose arrives six years after the critically acclaimed album Field of Reeds and is arguably the Barnett brothers' most innovative work to date. Watch the Harley Weir directed music video for the title track below.

Recorded in Berlin, London and Southend-on-Sea, and mixed in Los Angeles, Inside The Rose is a record unlike anything else you’ll hear this year – 40 minutes of powerful melodies, lush strings and progressive electronics, packed with jaw-dropping sonic left turns. The title track of the record is available to stream and download from today, and follows the release of another album track ‘Into The Fire’, debuted late last year to immense acclaim. ‘Inside The Rose’ debuts alongside a short film that draws the viewer into the world of the album, directed by the award-winning photographer Harley Weir in collaboration with George Barnett.

Together they began to create their own musical world and in the years since they’ve successfully blurred the distinctions between pop, classical, electronic, rock and experimental music, earning rave reviews and praise from artists as diverse as Björk, Massive Attack and Elton John along the way.

2008’s debut Beat Pyramid, released when the brothers were still in their teens, was a circular work of fast rhythms, repetitive lyrics and fractured field recordings, stood out like a sore thumb amongst the conservative, guitar-based music of the period. The follow up, Hidden (2010) defied expectations and garnered numerous ‘album of the year’ accolades. After appearing on Björk’s Bastards remix album, the band released the cinematic Field of Reeds in 2013. Since then, Jack and George’s desire for new sonic challenges saw them produce the musical score for the first authorised theatrical production of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World.

Now, reverting to the original duo of brothers Jack and George Barnett, These New Puritans open a new chapter with Inside The Rose. Writing sessions began in Essex in 2015 and were completed in Berlin after they relocated there; the majority of recording was done in a former Soviet broadcasting studio in the city’s industrial suburbs. Inside the Rose’s sharp romanticism grips like a vice, drawing you into a nocturnal alternate reality where nothing is as it seems. “The songs are about beauty, transcendence, desire, oblivion, ecstasy and eyes,” says Jack.

ROSIE LOWE 'YU' OUT 10TH MAY 2019 (DOMINO PUBLISHING)

DOMINO PUBLISHING
Rosie Lowe 'YU'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Rosie Lowe returns with her much-anticipated second album YU out on the 10th May via Wolf Tone. Produced by Dave Okumu (The Invisible, Grace Jones, Jessie Ware) and featuring The P Funk Choir of Jamie Woon, Jamie Lidell, Jordan Rakei and Kwabs. Watch the Jovan Todorovic directed music video above. 

First single Bird Song marks a new dawn for Rosie Lowe. The track was inspired, says Rosie, by ideas of “lust and desire, but with the lingering sense of insecurity and longing.” YU is a record that asks bigger questions of how the heart and mind works, and ultimately finds power through opening up both. A songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and DJ, Rosie Lowe’s work digs into a richly complex mix of musical and emotional experiences. 

YU – says Rosie – “is about other. I wanted to write about my experience of sharing my life with another as a lover, friend and partner.” These are intensely songs of the mind, which makes sense after all when you consider the fact that Lowe is also training in psychotherapy. And it’s a process of analysis which allows YU the broader scope to interrogate life as a twenty something in London, as a woman empowered and in control. As much as it pushes into new sounds and stories, YU also sees Rosie Lowe look back on her life, and all those things that make YU. She grew up as one of six kids in rural Devon, having learnt the saxophone young (which she still plays and adores) and been exposed to a broad mix of soul, jazz, funk and R&B; influences which come to glorious fruition on her second album. 

Released in collaboration with Paul Epworth’s Wolf Tone and reuniting Rosie with producer and co-writer Dave Okumu, the record also features a rare appearance from Jay Electronica, The P Funk Choir, and leading lights across the UK’s dance and jazz circles (Floating Points, Shabaka Hutchings, Alfa Mist).

Lisa O'Neill shares her latest album 'Heard A Long Gone Song' out 28th October 2019 via Rough Trade Records imprint River Lea. The album has already been shortlisted for the RTE Choice Music Prize, the prestigious prize celebrates the best of Irish recorded music. Watch the video for 'Rock The Machine' above. 

Lisa O’Neill grew up in Ballyhaise, County Cavan and now lives in Dublin. Heard A Long Gone Song, her first album for Rough Trade imprint River Lea is a collection of traditional material interspersed with her own. The sense of ownership Lisa imbues in these old songs, coupled with the immutability of her chosen subjects makes it hard to tell which is which.

These are folk songs in the original sense of the word. The album begins with an entirely unaccompanied rendition of The Galway Shawl, first collected in 1936 but made famous by Alan Lomax’s 1956 recording of the great Margaret Barry. Lisa’s remarkable and unconstrained delivery of this popular Irish street ballad is like hearing it for the first time. It’s followed by the slow-building menace of Along The North Strand, a version of Lady Isabel And The Elf Knight collected from a Traveller singer named Kitty Cassidy.

Hand Habits 'Placeholder'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Hand Habits has returned with their sophomore album, 'placeholder' out 1st March 2019 via Saddle Creek, watch the video for the title track above.

To make this album, Meg Duffy chose to work in a studio and bring in collaborators, entrusting them with what had previously been a very personal creative process. Over the course of 12 tracks, Meg emerges with new confidence as both a bandleader and singer.

As a lyricist, Meg is drawn to the in-between, and the songs on this new album primarily confront the ways in which certain experiences can serve as a stepping stone on the road to self-discovery. “A big aspect of my songwriting and the way I move through the world depends on my relationships with people. The songs on placeholder are about accountability and forgiveness,” Meg says. “These are all real stories. I don’t fictionalize much.” 

Instrumentally, placeholder can be situated alongside some of Meg’s folk-adjacent contemporaries like Angel Olsen or Big Thief, and the guitar work on this album proves that Meg continues to be one of the finest young musicians working today. placeholder is another entry in the Hand Habits songbook, but it’s also a valuable testament of our time. While placeholder inspires a sense of ease, simple questions rarely beget easy answers and Meg honors the indescribable joy and profound sorrow that comes with figuring things out, one step at a time.

Jessica Pratt announces new album 'Quiet Signs' Out 8th February via Mexican Summer/City Slang Records. To mark the announcement, Jessica Pratt has shared the first single 'This Time around' accompanied by a Laura-Lynn Petrick directed music video. Watch above.

Her first album fully recorded in a professional studio setting, Quiet Signs finds Pratt’s songwriting and accompanying guitar work refined — more distinct and direct. Songs like “Fare Thee Well” and “Poly Blue” retain glimmers of OYOLA‘s hazy day afternoon spells, yet delicate flute, strings sustained by organ arrangements, and rehearsal room piano now gesture towards the lush chamber pop and longing of The Left Banke. On the album’s first single, “This Time Around,” Pratt hits on a profound, late-night clarity over just a couple of deep chords, evoking Caetano Veloso‘s casual seaside brilliance. And before the curtain drops on Quiet Signs, Pratt provides a show-stopping closer, “Aeroplane.”

The album was written in Los Angeles and recorded at Gary’s Electric in Brooklyn, NY over 2017 and 2018. It was co-produced by Al Carlson. He plays flute, organ and piano on some songs. Matt McDermott also played piano and string synthesizer.

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 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’.

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.

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 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.
