VEVO has launched a DSCVR session for Georgia, featuring brilliant live performance videos for her latest singles ‘About Work The Dancefloor’ and ‘Started Out’.

“About Work The Dancefloor” is a defiant slice of electro-pop, exploring love, passion, melancholy and the thrill of finding yourself on the dancefloor. Showcasing Georgia’s upbeat pop brilliance, the track is a reflection of the rich influences of Georgia’s personal experience with club culture. “About Work The Dancefloor” follows the euphoric hit single, “Started Out” which reached the A-list at BBC Radio1 and broke in to the top 15 in the Shazam charts.

NEW SIGNING: ARLO DAY 'BAD TIMING' OUT 31ST MAY 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN


Arlo Day is the moniker of Alice Barlow, a young songwriter and guitarist from South-East London whose unique ear for melody, haunting vocals and rumbling guitar tones have gained a quiet reputation as one of the capital’s best kept secrets. Newly-signed to iconic indie label Domino, Arlo Day has today revealed her debut single ‘Bad Timing’ and its emotive video. ‘Bad Timing’ is the lead single and title track taken from her first EP out 31st May. 

The video for ‘Bad Timing’ came together during the cold winter months of 2018 with Barlow collaborating alongside friends Holly Taylor, Elena Isolini and Esther Collins. The visuals were shot in the friends’ houses and all around South London. Barlow adds: ‘Like the song, the video is based around the disparity of time and hindsight, and how moments of the past can replay in your mind. We were inspired by photographs by Duane Michals and Katrien de Blauwer, and Lynne Ramsay’s short film Gasman.’

Self-produced and recorded at home, the Bad Timing EP is a trio of tracks that showcase her deft ability to write songs that are at once personal vignettes and brooding canvases for introspection and introduces Arlo Day as a singular and exciting new songwriting talent.

HAYDEN THORPE 'DIVINER' THE DEBUT SOLO ALBUM OUT 24TH MAY 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN
Hayden Thorpe 'Diviner'

It is with great pleasure that Domino announce Diviner, the debut solo album from Hayden Thorpe, due for release on 24th May 2019. Along with the news of Diviner, Hayden Thorpe shares the new track, “Love Crimes” plus a video, directed by Alexandra Liveris. Watch above.

Diviner is a deeply emotional album: lyrically generous in its candid tone and self-awareness, the melodies resonant with sense memory. The album feels like a startling departure from Thorpe’s previous work with Wild Beasts and also unlike anything else being made at the moment. 

Written in a deep period of flux; at points in California, Cornwall and at his home in London - the latter acting as a womb-like space where he worked out his new life, story and belief systems. “My adulthood was based on a certain belief system, a band, a family. When it shifted entirely, I had a ghost I had to find a new haunt for,” Thorpe notes. But his belief in songs as transformative entities kept him going. “I believe in the medicinal properties of songs. I believe in their healing properties,” he says. “Songs defy time, they don’t erode or denature, they come with you and reform anew in your mind as and when you need them.”

 “I broke up with myself. So this is a break-up album, but not about a relationship. It’s a break-up from a past self, it’s a breakup from the old idea of yourself and therefore every relationship, of all kinds, that you’ve ever had.” Throughout the record, Thorpe’s voice is a beacon - paired with weaving piano, ambient guitar drifts and propulsive bass lines - his sound is even more powerfully unfettered than before, as if he’d found a new inner voice, a new way to use his instrument.

CLINIC SHARE NEW SONG 'LAUGHING CAVALIER' OUT 8TH APRIL 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Having previously shared ‘Rubber Bullets’ from their upcoming album, Liverpool’s Clinic share new song ‘Laughing Cavalier'. Watch the Joseph May directed music video above.

Last month, Clinic announced their return with news of their first album in seven years alongside playing live at BBC 6 Music’s Festival. Entitled Wheeltappers and Shunters, the new album will be released on May 10th, and is named after the long-forgotten 1970s ITV variety show The Wheeltappers and Shunters Social Club, compered by Bernard Manning, which recreated the smoky, boozy atmosphere of Northern working men's clubs for a sofa-bound audience.

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. “We didn’t plan it. Within the set of songs that we’d worked on for it there was a thread of it being a bit more rock’n’roll, a bit more UP! It had that sort of feel to it early on.”

DOMINO ALL-IN
Little Cub 'Millennium People'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Little Cub return with the new single 'Millennium People' a savage satire with a clear intent to unsettle, watch the video above.  

“Millennium People” is the first new recording from Little Cub following their debut album, Still Life, in 2017 and was mixed by David Wrench (David Byrne, The xx). As if Vangelis sound tracked a Cronenberg movie - but in the Hacienda - this party is here to “bring the people together” but with a caveat. The track takes aim at those who cry for reason, and those who don’t cry at all; as singer Dominic Gore proclaims, “Maybe it’s time, the great British lifeboat capsized?”

Degenerate sloganeering (‘Millennium People’ is named after a J.G. Ballard novel after all) commands you to throw sense and servility out the window. With driving synths and tempos that drunkenly waver like society teetering on the brink, the arrival of the chorus comes to snap you to your senses.

It’s time for organising, it’s time for vulgarity and as Adam Curtis said the time has come to ask “whether you really want change or just the banks to be a bit nicer to you”.

 “About Work The Dancefloor is a song written in response to the clubbing culture I experienced in cities whilst touring. Going out and getting that emotion or sensation from a collective energy in various spaces. It’s that stuff of old school disco, the thrill of the dance floor” says Georgia on the track. The video was directed by NYSU in Madrid.

WATCHING SORRY 'JEALOUS BOY' OUT 21ST MARCH 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN
Sorry 'Jealous Boy'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

North London’s Sorry have shared their new track and video ‘Jealous Guy’ on Domino, watch above.

‘Jealous Guy’ is Sorry’s first new music of 2019, following their acclaimed 7” ‘Showgirl’/’Twinkle’, which received glowing  praise from Pitchfork and Dazed, and saw the band perform live for Marc Riley on BBC Radio 6 Music - and ‘Starstruck, a track that caught the eye of BBC Radio 1, seeing multiple plays across the station this year and last.

A sideways look at the John Lennon and The Plastic Ono Band song of the same name, ‘Jealous Guy’s buoyant tone finds a perfect juxtaposition cut with principal songwriters and vocalists Asha Lorenz and Louis O’Bryen’s sly and witty lyrics: “I'm just a jealous guy, watch out.” The riotous video for ‘Jealous Guy’ was directed by the band’s Asha, frequent Sorry visuals collaborator Flo Webb - the pair operate under the Flasha moniker - and Jasper Cable-Alexander. Asha explains, “We played on the saxophone idea - I guess like a Madness or The Specials video, or like The Blues Brothers, sharply dressed and funny, with interesting shots of us about town. The theme of jealousy runs through the video and the last shot is me [Asha] killing Louis due to her jealousy, after the realisation that Louis is too good at writing songs.”

Centred around Asha and O'Bryen, two 20 and 21-year-old childhood best friends, Sorry were signed by Domino after developing a reputation as the most thrilling new band on London’s underground circuit. Sorry’s lineup is completed by Lincoln Barrett on drums and bassist Campbell Baum.

WATCHING FAT WHITE FAMILY 'TASTES GOOD WITH THE MONEY' DIR. ROISIN MURPHY (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN
Fat White Family 'Tastes Good With The Money'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Following the recent announcement of their third album, Serfs Up!, Fat White Family have shared the video to Tastes Good With The Money, an absurd Monty Python inspired ‘romp’ directed by Roisin Murphy. Watch above.

Talking about the video, Roisin said: 

The idea of referencing Monty Python partly came out of the somewhat absurd and confusing political landscape that we are now living in Britain, Python seems prescient. The British laughing at themselves, a certain kind glee even in the loss of empire, singing as the ship goes down, well it just seems so...of the moment. There is this deep ambivalence to the establishment that resonates with the Fat Whites own irreverent world view.

Most of all I wanted an idea that would give them the confidence and the space to really let go and just perform, too allow them to be raw in what is essentially an unnatural situation for a bunch of ne’er do well musicians.

When I look at the video, what I see is the trust they put in me and I’m so proud of that. Maybe it’s because I am a performer too but they let themselves be put in a kind-of vulnerable situation; they allowed themselves to be foolish, silly and absurd in a way that could have gone tits-up, however, the result is hilarious and the performances are second to none.

Additionally, the  band are set to play a number of in-store shows the week of release of Serfs Up! The London & Kingston in-stores give fans a chance to see the band perform their unmissable full live show in tiny spaces, while the remaining shows see the band perform stripped back re-imaginings of the songs in a baroque style.

Pram 'Across The Meridian'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Following the release of Across The Meridian – their first album in 11 years – Pram have shared a new video for ‘Doll’s Eyes’, directed by Scott Johnston. Watch the video above.

"Pram's music often conjures a world for me that lies disconcertingly between adult nostalgia, childhood terrors,” says Johnston of the new video. “For this track I took those feelings literally! The concept became, what if I were making this video when I was a 12-year old home movie monster kid, using Super8mm, crude props and friends/family pets, all mashed up with a teen's heightened view of love and obsession?"

Released in 2018, Across The Meridian is a celebration of Pram’s unique vision, focused into a beautifully constructed and tautly produced soundworld. As with their previous albums, Across the Meridian mixes instrumentals and songs, weaving a gleeful path through the musical territory of film scores, 30s jazz, sun-drenched pop, electronica, and post-punk experimentation. Haunting and wistful vocals are set to a variety of soundscapes, sometimes appearing as a snatched fragment of the subconscious and dreamlike, at others crafting a story of longing or regret, drawing the listener into Pram’s uncanny world through the mirror. Newcomers to Pram will find a richly detailed collage of influences ranging from exotica, Krautrock and the forgotten film soundtracks that went on to inspire contemporaries Stereolab & Broadcast.

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.

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.

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.

SASAMI 'SASAMI' OUT 8TH MARCH 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

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.

WATCHING JULIA HOLTER 'WHETHER' (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN
Julia Holter 'Aviary'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE


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.  

“Sonic beauty and brains in a 90-minute epic” The Guardian 4*

STEVE MASON 'WALKING AWAY FROM LOVE' OUT 26TH NOVEMBER 2018 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN


Steve Mason has today shared 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. Listen above.

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,”.

JAMES YORKSTON 'THE ROUTE TO THE HARMONIUM' OUT 22ND FEBRUARY 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN


James Yorkston will release his new album The Route to the Harmonium on Feb 22nd 2019; produced by Yorkston and David Wrench, it is James’ first solo record since 2014’s Cellardyke Recording and Wassailing Society (CRAWS) and follows the two collaborative albums he made as one third of Yorkston/Thorne/Khan as well as the release of his debut novel Three Craws in 2016. 

Alongside the announcement, James has shared new song ‘My Mouth Ain’t No Bible’ - one of three thrilling spoken-word pieces on the record. It thrums insistently, military snares punching away, Yorkston’s delivery interplaying as two competing voices, one of himself, the other a lost musician friend, “a spare hand, a hired hand, a deck hand” who was unable to prevent self-destruction. 

The album was almost entirely recorded by James himself, in the small Scottish fishing village of Cellardyke, where he lives. Yorkston’s studio is a ramshackle old loft space, originally used to repair fisherman’s nets, and now stuffed full the antique instruments James has collected throughout his life as a musician. Having created hours of recordings, James called up his old collaborator David Wrench - the mixer and producer who has worked with the likes of Caribou, Four Tet, Frank Ocean, FKA Twigs and David Byrne - and someone who has worked on James’ albums since 2003 – to help make sense of the sessions.

The Route to the Harmonium (or, ‘the search for peace’) is intensely personal; it’s the sound of home, of undisturbed craftmanship. 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. And friends and family, past and present swim all over his songs. Remembering them, and those you’ve shared life with, those who leave and those who remain, is the strongest thread running through these affecting, extraordinary songs. This is Yorkston’s world and could be nowhere else in music.

RUSTIN MAN 'DRIFT CODE' OUT 1ST FEBRUARY 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

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


Rustin Man aka Paul Webb has announced his return. Webb, formerly the bass player in Talk Talk, will release his new album Drift Code on February 1st 2019 via Domino. Additionally, Rustin Man has shared the opening song, ‘Vanishing Heart’, watch above.  

Webb 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.The long-awaited album has a warm, wise kind of euphoria to it, coupled with an acute sense of storytelling and surreality.  Webb, who for the first time has written songs specifically for his own voice, turns out to be a gifted character actor, adopting various vocal roles across the songs. In ‘Vanishing Heart’, he is someone liberated from a loveless relationship: “At last I’ve found more warmth to feeling / It feels so good to be alive”.

As you might expect from someone of Webb’s pedigree, Drift Code is a deep, detailed work. The passage of time, the living space full of art, treasured objects and junk, the years spent listening to film music and ‘40s standards are all audible. But there’s a surprising spontaneity to it too. Though he did much of it alone, Webb’s recording technique made the music feel as if it has been recorded by a group of musicians playing in the same room. Raw demos written on a Dictaphone provided the basis for tracks begun with drums played by Webb’s former Talk Talk and O’rang colleague Lee Harris

“I called the album Drift Code as it’s an oxymoron, a code is something fixed, but our instinct is to wander, to drift. I like the idea that life is a puzzle that can’t be solved because the answer is always changing.”
