Mandolin Orange release their latest album 'Tides Of A Teardrop'  on the 1st February via Yep Roc Records. To mark the release, the band have shared the Josh Sliffe directed music video for 'Golden Embers' 

Mandolin Orange’s music radiates a mysterious warmth —their songs feel like whispered secrets, one hand cupped to your ear. 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. You can hear the air between them—the taut space of shared understanding, as palpable as a magnetic field, that makes their music sound like two halves of an endlessly completing thought. 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)

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)

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 'HEARD A LONG GONE SONG' OUT 28TH OCTOBER 2019 (DOMINO PUBLISHING)

Lisa O'Neill 'Heard A Long Gone Song'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

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.
