The Last Shadow Puppets have launched the video for their new single ‘Aviation’. The video for ‘Aviation’ was created by Saam Farahmand with Black Sheep Studios. Watch above.
‘Aviation’ and recent single ‘Bad Habits’ feature on the band’s second album ‘Everything You’ve Come To Expect’ which will be released on Friday 1st April. The album finds Alex Turner and Miles Kane reunited with James Ford (production and drums) and Owen Pallett (string arrangements) and joined by Zachary Dawes (Mini Mansions) on bass, recording the follow up to 2008’s ‘The Age Of The Understatement’ at Shangri La Studio in Malibu.
Throws’ Icelandic heritage is dusted all over their debut track. ’The Harbour’’s suitably shivery opening is just the tip of the iceberg, too - from the topsy-turvy, snowy accompanying video to the stabs of wobbly bass that puncture its shimmering pop oddness, there’s an ice-cold cool to every element of this this first step.
An album is due out later this year on Full Time Hobby.
'Distance Inbetween' is The Coral’s eighth studio record and their first of original material since 2010 release 'Butterfly House'. Last year saw the band release "lost album" 'The Curse of Love'. The album was recorded at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studio with co-producer Richard Turvey.
The album is dedicated to Alan Wills, The Coral’s early mentor and Deltasonic label boss who died in 2014.
"Before we started making the album we had discussed that we wanted it to be more minimal and rhythmical,” frontman James Skelly says in a statement. “We thought ‘if you've got a rhythm section that’s been playing together for almost twenty years, why not make that the centre of the songs?’"
Paul Molloy, formerly of The Zutons, has joined the band on guitar with Ian Skelly, Nick Power and Paul Duffy rounding off the current line-up of the band. Watch the video for the single 'Miss Fortune' above.
Charles Moothart has been a major part of the Bay Area garage noise revival over the last few years. He’s been at Ty Segall’s side from Perverts through the Ty Segall Band, Fuzz, and GØGGS. Moothart and Mikal Cronin launched Moonhearts together, and the former played on both of the latter’s most recent albums. Now, he’s taking his name solo as he’s launched the new project CFM.
CFM’s debut LP is entitled Still Life of Citrus and Slime and is due out via the In the Red label. The album was written during two months of deliberate isolation brought on by “a brief and impermanent” separation from his longtime girlfriend and bandmate. Now that those wounds are healed, Moothart is ready to share the grimy, acidic fruits of his labor, beginning with lead single “Lunar Heroine”. Take a listen below.
US audio-visual artist Luke Wyatt has announced details of his second album as Torn Hawk, Union and Return.
The 11-track album was inspired by the idealised landscapes of painters like Karl Friedrich Schinkel and Caspar David Friedrich, which led Wyatt to incorporate themes of 19th century Romanticism in his music.
Union and Return ditches the irony, distortion and electronic collage of his previous records and replaces them with “lush and ornate” compositions.
The album is Wyatt’s second for Mexican Summer after 2014’s Let’s Cry and Do Pushups at the Same Time, through which he explored machismo and vulnerability, and follows a string of 12″s for L.I.E.S. and his own Valcrond Video label. Listen to 'Feeling Is Law' above.
Brooklyn’s Big Thief will release thier debut album Masterpiece via Saddle Creek. The LP finds the rising outfit specifically capturing “the process of harnessing pain, loss, and love, while simultaneously letting them go, looking into your own eyes through someone else’s, and being okay with the inevitability of death,” says the band’s main songwriter Adrianne Lenker.
Case in point - Big Thief’s latest single 'Real Love', though it starts quietly, the folk-tinged number mirrors its tempestuous lyrics, eventually blooming into a wild little rocker.
Watch the video for 'Masterpiece' above and stream 'Real Love' below.
Alex G is pleased to share the video for ‘Mud’, taken from last year’s stunning Beach Music. Shot in his hometown of Philadelphia, and featuring Alex and a cast of his friends - including Emily Yacina, the other vocalist on the track - the video is a sweet glimpse into the charmingly low-key life G inhabits.
Philadelphia trio Nothing have confirmed plans to release their new album ‘Tired of Tomorrow’ later this year.
The three-piece will follow up their 2014 debut ‘Guilty of Everything’ with the new ten-track full-length on 13th May. The record, which was recorded over a month in Studio 4 with Will Yip - the man behind albums from the likes of La Dispute and Title Fight - will be released through Relapse Records.
The band have also shared the official album trailer which can be seen above.

Experimental pop duo Young Magic are thrilled to announce their new full-length Still Life, set for release on Carpark Records. Singer Melati Melay grew up in Jakarta before relocating to New York ten years ago, and Still Life is an exquisite homage to her home country of Indonesia.
Born in Dundee, Billy Mackenzie formed the legendary band The Associates with Alan Rankine in 1979. Their biggest hits included "Party Fears Two" and "Club Country". Post Rankine’s departure from the band in ’82, Mackenzie continued working under the same name until the 1990s when he began to use his own name. His debut album ‘Outernational’ was released in 1992. Struggling with depression and the death of his mother, Mackenzie sadly took his own life on the 22nd January 1997.
The album 'Beyond The Sun' was released by Nude Records a few months after his death in January 1997 and includes some of his most melancholic material (much of it co-written with Steve Aungle) perhaps illustrated best by the track "Winter Academy" (from 'Beyond The Sun'). Four albums in total were released posthumously, showcasing Billy's influence to constantly push boundaries and produce beautifully crafted, heartfelt music. The last of these albums ‘Transmission Impossible’ was released in 2005. In June 2009, a play was staged in Dundee about Mackenzie’s life. We are extremely proud to represent Billy's music and have him part of the Domino Publishing family.
Bill Ryder-Jones has shared a barand new track titled 'Out of The Dark' which is one of two new tracks taken from a new digital bonus edition of the album 'West Kirby County Primary' that was released in November, 2015 on Domino.
Rootsy Toronto band The Strumbellas gained widespread recognition with their sophomore album, 2013's We Still Move on Dance Floors, which earned them a Juno win and worldwide distribution. Now, they've announced the follow-up. Hope will be out on Glassnote Records.
The band recorded it at Toronto's Lincoln County Social Club with producer Dave Schiffman (Weezer, HAIM, Sky Ferreira). There were three studio sessions, all in the first half of 2015. The pop-friendly recent single "Spirits" will be included. Watch the video above.
Glasgow’s Spinning Coin are to release new single ‘Albany’ through The Pastels’ Geographic Music imprint. Listen to ‘Albany’ BELOW. Spinning Coin are a fiercely independent rock group from Glasgow, something you could probably guess by listening to any of their songs.
Their roots are all over the place but a simple love of playing together in their rehearsal space, and almost never turning down shows, has seen them coalesce a winning group sound in almost no time at all, becoming an important part of the UK’s always interesting DIY live music scene. Drummer Chris White is part of the Winning Sperm Party collective, who document of a world of shadowy Glasgow music running all the way from the Glasgow Music Collective to Fuzzkill Records today. All the other members of Spinning Coin – Sean Armstrong, Cal Donnelly and Jack Mellin see themselves as primarily coming from this scene.
British trio Fear of Men (Jessica Weiss, Daniel Falvey, and Michael Miles) have announced a new album and shared its first single. Fall Forever is due out via Kanine. Below you can stream "Trauma". The album is the follow-up to the Brighton-based band's 2014-released debut Loom.
Weiss calls Fall Forever "a love album" and says in a press release that it's a "very personal and genuine record exploring where my life is at the moment."
Watch the video for the first single "Island" above.
The Kills have unveiled details of their highly anticipated fifth album. Entitled Ash & Ice, the albumwill be released on June 3rd through Domino. Accompanying today’s announcement is the video for brand new single ‘Doing It To Death’, directed by Wendy Morgan (Janelle Monae, Laura Mvula) and shot in Los Angeles last month.
Unlike earlier albums, which have largely been written and recorded at Key Club Studio in Benton Harbor, Michigan, the bulk of the recording for Ash & Ice took place in a rented house in LA and at the world famous Electric Lady Studios in NYC. The album was produced by Jamie Hince and co-produced by John O’Mahony (Metric, The Cribs), and mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Arcade Fire, Amy Winehouse) and Tchad Blake (Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys).
Hailed by Rolling Stone as “a genre unto herself,” Kaki King is a true iconoclast, a visionary musician/artist whose singular work rightly stands out amongst the easily formatted. Over her decade-long career, the Brooklyn-based guitarist/composer has recorded five extraordinarily diverse and distinctive LPs, performed with such icons as Foo Fighters, Dave Byrne, Timbaland, and The Mountain Goats, contributed to a variety of film and TV soundtracks and played to ever-growing audiences on countless world tours. See her story in this episode of Uncharted above.
Following the release of the first single “Florida” from his forthcoming album Potential, Brooklyn, NY-based musician The Range (AKA James Hinton), has shared the second single, “Five Four”, with an accompanying video. Watch it ABOVE.
Lone has worked his magic on the new single from Nimmo, a London five-piece making breezy tracks inspired by garage, jungle and ’80s electro-pop, and currently tipped for big things after a debut EP on Kitsuné in 2014.
Their new single ‘UnYoung’, originally produced by Boxed In (Oli Bayston), has just been given an luscious piano-rave makeover by Lone, who throws his signature twinkling keys and phased synths over chunky, rolling bass drums. Definitely an antidote to the band’s description of the track as “a song about the fear of our parents or loved ones dying”. Watch the video above.
In the quiet moments found between touring her first solo album and collaborating with mainstay folk and bluegrass peers, Aoife O’Donovan found the inspiration to write her sophomore album “In the Magic Hour” — out on Yep Roc Records.
The songwriting process for “In the Magic Hour” coincided with the death of O’Donovan’s grandfather, at age 93. She remembers him as a “gentle soul,” in the small Irish village of Clonakilty where he lived. The lyrics on “In the Magic Hour” are infused with a sense of loss and mortality’s dark certainty. But the album is just as much an ode to O’Donovan’s joyful childhood visits to Ireland. Aunts, uncles, grandparents and flocks of cousins would gather at the Clonakilty seaside to swim in the chilly ocean and sing together in the lingering Irish summer twilight. “In my memory it was sunny every day,” O’Donovan says. “Although that definitely cannot be true.”
The result of O’Donovan’s days of solitude is a 10-song album full of the singer’s honeyed vocals mixed with gauzy, frictionless sounds: splashing cymbals, airy harmonies, the leisurely baritone musings of an electric guitar.
After the critically acclaimed release Deep Fantasy (2014), White Lung return with their fourth studio album Paradise, due out on Domino.
