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.

WATCHING JAMES YORKSTON 'SHALLOW' (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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Julia Holter 'Aviary'

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.

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 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.”

Panda Bear 'Buoys'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Noah Lennox's sixth solo album as Panda Bear is Buoys, due out February 8th, 2019 on Domino. The first song to be released from Buoys is “Dolphin”: Lennox’s bright, sincere voice front and center, with miles of space surrounding it, a guitar and some textured samples fleshing out the dubby sparseness and undercurrent of speaker-limit-pushing sub-bass low-end. Watch above.

Buoys was co-produced and co-mixed by collaborator Rusty Santos in Lennox’s adopted home of Lisbon, Portugal. Lennox and Santos last collaborated on the landmark Panda Bear album Person Pitch, which had its 10-year anniversary last year.

Animated by their ongoing interest in contemporary music production techniques, Lennox and Santos envisioned something that would “feel familiar to a young person’s ears.” However, Buoys retains a deep layer of experimentation coursing through the hyper-modern production – a hallmark of Panda Bear releases that will feel intimately familiar to fans of Lennox’s decade-plus body of work.

Alongside Santos, Buoys also features collaborators in Chilean DJ/vocalist Lizz and Portuguese musician Dino D'Santiago, both artists who came to Lennox via Santos’ recent trap and reggaeton production work; the former contributes arrangements throughout the album including “Dolphin,” and both lend their vocals to “Inner Monologue."

Buoys is the first Panda Bear release since 2018's vinyl-only EP A Day With the Homies, and the follow-up to 2015's kaleidoscopic full-length Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper. "The last three records felt like a chapter to me, and this feels like the beginning of something new," says Lennox whilst surveying how Buoys relates to the estimable Panda Bear catalogue. Indeed, the forthcoming Buoys is full of fresh ideas from one of modern music's most fascinating, innovative, and emotionally generous artists.

Directed by Sam Wisternoff (Ill Spectre Productions), Wisternoff says of the video:

“The tongue in cheek idea behind the clip is for it to represent 'The Last Music Video Ever Made'.  This is to reflect the mournful elements of the song, a kind of 'waving goodbye to the format'.  The more psychedelic elements of the track are represented by Seamus as a floating space creature, distorting and warping as he looks down on the earth-bound video as it slowly zooms away. 

I used a variety of techniques including re-filming parts of the video by pointing a lens-less camera at the monitor screen and exposing Seamus to dangerously high level 'warping rays'.  In space.”

Following the release of her recent track “Mellow” featuring Shygirl comes “Started Out”, the brand new single from Georgia, her second single of 2018. Watch the Rosie Marks directed video above. 

“Started Out” is an upbeat and euphoric track infused with hedonism and influences from the Chicago house scene of the 80s. Using the same original 909 drum machines & sequential analogue synths used by dance legends of the 80s & 90s, “Started Out” is another shining example of Georgia’s flair in the studio; melting her thrilling pop lyricism, with her rich wealth of experience in the studio. 

The video, featuring Georgia, was shot and directed by Rosie Marks, who was recently included in the 2018 Dazed 100 list. Georgia says about the track:

Started Out is about that exciting sensation that comes from the beginning of something, maybe meeting someone for the first time and getting a sensation/thrill out of it all. It’s hard to maintain though, and you don’t want to lose it. But we can be bold, take risks, be young fools, and not be able to understand what it all means but know that someone will love us for it.”

Bill adds: “Love this video although I decided to never wear sunglasses again after watching it”. A buckle-up and knuckle-down listen, Yawn rewards the listeners’ attention with motifs and melodies that play hide and seek but never fail to deliver on those between-the-lines verities. This musical belief of delayed gratification is something Bill learnt from classical music as a child, from Elgar and Debussy in particular – and over the long hall of his short life, you can hear these riches being polished on Yawn. Most of the 10 songs clock-in over the 5 minute mark and this wide-angle lens affords us time to interpret and translate meaning – or just to revel in it.

“Yawn is a sublime show of songwriting strength, Ryder-Jones’s gifts, world-weary as they are, showing no signs of running down or out” Mojo 4*            “It’s a stunningly assured, deeply romantic and already one of this year’s best” Q 4*

Seamus Fogarty is pleased to announce news of his new EP The Old Suit, which will be released on November 2nd.  He also shares the title track from the EP, featuring additional production and mixing by Mike Lindsay (Tunng, LUMP). Listen above.

Seamus explains how the EP got started: “I put a crappy drum machine, a crappier synth and a cheap guitar in a plastic bag and took myself off to a cottage in a restored famine village on the Southwest coast of Ireland to write. I came back to London refreshed, having written no songs, and went out for a few drinks with my friend Ed Dowie after which we challenged each other to write something new every two weeks. I trawled through various phone recordings I’d made while on my (non)writing trip, hoping to find some magic fragment, and I found a line about an old suit which I’d written while reflecting on the loss of my friend Willie Meighan.  I wanted to make something a bit different from the album (except for Emma Smith’s strings which go on everything), so I took a chance and asked Mike Lindsey if he’d lend an ear or two and help mix and produce the track, and this is what we ended up with.” 

The Old Suit EP also features another new Seamus song, ‘Song For John’ (an ode to John Martyn and a sing off Seamus once had with him) plus two remixes, the first by Django Django and the second from label-mate James Yorkston. Seamus says of the remixes: “I've been a huge fan of Django Django since seeing them on the Planet Eigg back in 2012 so was delighted to be able to get them on board to remix ‘Carlow Town’. James Yorkston has been a great friend and inspiration for many years; this is James getting his dancing shoes on.”

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.

Jon Hopkins 'Singularity'

Taken from his critically acclaimed new album, Singularity, Jon Hopkins is very proud to share the video for the title track. Directed by Academy Films’ Seb Edwards, ‘Singularity’ is a visual pinnacle of the album’s arc and a continuation and deepening of all the themes that pervade Jon Hopkins’ work. Watch above.

Jon Hopkins says of the video: “This is the single most epic video I’ve ever had made. Seb has been a friend and collaborator for nearly 15 years now, but this is the first opportunity we’ve had to work with total freedom on a video for my own music. The power of what he has done left me speechless the first time I saw it. He translated the themes of destruction and defiance that I fed into the music into a powerful, violent ballet between male and female and I totally love it.” 

Director Seb Edwards adds:  “I've always loved Jon’s work and we've been wanting to collaborate for a while. ‘Singularity’ is such an incredible track, its merciless intensity somehow reflects our troubled times. I wanted to capture the feeling of defiance that rises from the initial brutality. The track is ultimately about acceptance and finding peace in nature. I hope I did it justice.”

NEW SIGNING: HEN OGLEDD 'MOGIC' OUT 16TH NOVEMBER 2018 (WEIRD WORLD/DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN
Hen Ogledd 'Problem Child'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Weird World are proud to welcome Hen Ogledd and their new record, Mogic, due for release on 16th November 2018. Founded by Richard Dawson and harpist, Rhodri Davies, with the addition of Dawn Bothwell and Sally Pilkington, Hen Ogledd’s meaning comes from the Welsh name for The Old North. Along with the news of Mogic, Hen Ogledd take you on a psychedelic journey through time and space in the new video for ‘Problem Child’. Watch above.

Mogic is Hen Ogledd’s third LP (their first for Weird World), and their most surprising and accessible work yet.

Each hailing from historically different tribal regions of the Old North, the musicians on Mogic challenge the idea that the ancient world was rife with magic, while the new is infiltrated by cold logic. The tracks on Mogic create new phantasmal blends of images and ideas that draw upon the mystical and technological. Mogic is a discombobulating pop prayer exploring artificial intelligence, witches, nanotechnology, pre-medieval history, robots, romance, computer games and waterfalls. 

This dynamic record of eddies and swirls, ravishing melodies, hallucinatory textures and bonkers rhythms is pinned down by some deft performances: Pilkington’s picture-perfect pop and earthy singing, Davies’ blazing harp splutterations and guitar moans, Bothwell's twisted telephone techno and bamboozling lyric-bombs and Dawson's utter bass. No small mention must go to special guest Will Guthrie, one of the finest and classiest drummers there is, who's all over this record like long grass on dunes.

STEVE MASON 'ABOUT THE LIGHT' OUT 18TH JANUARY 2018 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN

GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE


Steve Mason has announced details of his new album, About The Light, which is out on Double Six on Friday 18th January 2019.  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). Stars Around My Heart, the first track to be shared from the album, is accompanied by a suitably out-there video directed by Brother Willis (www.brotherwillis.com). Watch above.

Talking about the Spielberg meets Ashes to Ashes video, Brother Willis said:

“The concept and inspiration were very much a collaborative effort with Steve.  We share a mutual love for the textures and warm personality that outdated formats have in contrast to the crisp HD 8K of today.  It was an incredible collaborative experiment to shoot on Tube Camera and modern camera and put it all out to tape and back to try and achieve the feeling of watching a beloved sci-fi movie from your youth.  And a good excuse to have amazingly talented people build an alien vessel and hone their early 80’s visual effects skills. We were aiming for an uplifting, Psychedelic Spielberg effect that hopefully we achieved.”

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.  Talking about the process, Stephen Street says, “Steve explained that he wanted to make this album with his band playing more ‘live’ than on some of his previous offerings and also to augment the songs with brass and female backing vocalists. I felt this approach of first stripping back the songs to a more ‘live’ feel to create more space for the more ‘soulful’ elements to breathe in was an interesting one and we got down to work!”

Recorded at studios in London and Brighton, About The Light,sees a subtle yet noticeable evolution in Steve’s sound. 

“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?”

HOW TO DRESS WELL 'THE ANTEROOM' OUT 19TH OCTOBER 2018 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN
How To Dress Well 'The Anteroom'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

How To Dress Well announces The Anteroom, the upcoming album from Thomas Krell will be out October 19th on Domino.  Co-produced by Joel Ford (Ford & Lopatin, Airbird) How To Dress Well shares the first single from the album – “Nonkilling 6 | Hunger”. Watch the collaborative effort, written and directed by Krell and visual artist Justin Daashuur Hopkins, with help from Hopkins’ NOH/WAVE collective, above.

The stories Krell sings on this record – some biographical, many from the most knotted corners of human life – are deeply personal and human(e). The Anteroom - with its blizzardous electronic noise, fragile melodies and poignant poetry - reclaims the experimental core of the HTDW project. 

As TK puts it: “I wrote the record after moving to Los Angeles, which is a crazy and maybe dreadful place, right after the 2016 election, with hell and death gaining ground all around us on every corner of the globe. The Anteroom is testament to a two year period in which I felt myself slipping out of the world and into a cosmic loneliness in which I would eventually be dissolved. In order to give myself a way back, I began to try to understand my station as some kind of anteroom – a space between – a chamber that separates the known and the unknown, stable life from total disintegration.” Teetering on treacherous precipices, living in an uncanny new place, Krell found his way back around to the sound and inspiration of his early work, and to his grandest statement yet – the culmination of a 10-year journey, and the dawn of a daring new one.

The song “Nonkilling 6 | Hunger” opens with a stanza from Li Young-Lee, one of the many poets sampled and featured on The Anteroom. Much of the video features interactively generated digital visual work by Cloaking, and all the effects in the video were generated by combining digital fx with analog in-camera techniques, yielding a physically intense lo-fi/hi-fi hybrid a union that is echoed in the music of The Anteroom

JULIA HOLTER 'AVIARY' OUT 26TH OCTOBER 2018 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN

GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE


Aviary is an epic journey through what Julia Holter announces her latest album 'Aviary' to be released on 26th October via Domino. Watch the video for I Shall Love 2 above. 

It’s the Los Angeles composer’s most breathtakingly expansive album yet, full of startling turns and dazzling instrumental arrangements. The follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2015 record, Have You in My Wilderness, it takes as its starting point a line from a 2009 short story by writer Etel Adnan: "I found myself in an aviary full of shrieking birds." It’s a scenario that sounds straight out of a horror movie, but it’s also a pretty good metaphor for life in 2018, with its endless onslaught of political scandals, freakish natural disasters, and voices shouting their desires and resentments into the void.

Aviary, executive produced by Cole MGN and produced by Holter and Kenny Gilmore, combines Holter's slyly theatrical vocals and Blade Runner-inspired synth work with an enveloping palette of strings and percussion that reveals itself, and the boundless scope of her vision, over the course of fifteen songs. Holter was joined by Corey Fogel (percussion), Devin Hoff (bass), Dina Maccabee (violin, viola, vocals), Sarah Belle Reid (trumpet), Andrew Tholl (violin), and Tashi Wada (synth, bagpipes).

BILL RYDER JONES 'YAWN' OUT 2ND NOVEMBER 2018 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

  

Bill Ryder-Jones announces his fourth album 'Yawn' set for release on November 2nd via Domino. The first track to be shared from Yawn is ‘Mither’, a song about Bill’s mother, who he talks about in a timbre warm as milky tea, worrying about her guinea pigs instead of Bill (for once). Watch the James Slater directed video above.

Multi-instrumentalist, producer, string-arranger and composer Bill Ryder-Jones has had a career spanning 15 years, a rarity in a world that so often looks to the new.  From his musical interpretation of Italo Calvino’s ‘If On A Winters Night A Traveller' (If… in 2011), 2013’s A Bad Wind Blows In My Heart, the acclaimed West Kirby County Primary (2015) and now to Yawn, Bill has constantly widened his scope, weaving in an overarching sense of authenticity, intimacy and wryness as he goes. 

Yawn was recorded and produced entirely by Bill himself, with a little help from friends including guest vocals from The Orielles and Our Girl, cello by Rod Skip and mixing by Craig Silvey (Portishead, The Horrors, Arcade Fire). Bill has also been steadily building up a list of album production credits for other musicians including Our Girl, Hooton Tennis Club, Brooke Bentham and Holly Macve, who he records at his own place in West Kirby, aptly titled Yawn Studios.
