The Northern Irish artist and electronic composer’s third album is a seven-movement odyssey composed for analogue synthesizers and full, traditional 29-piece colliery brass band! ‘Mary Casio: Journey to Cassiopeia’, released 8th September via My Own Pleasure, explores one person's journey to outer space, by recounting the story of an unknown, elderly, pioneering, electronic musical stargazer and her lifelong dream to leave her terraced home in the mining town of Barnsley, South Yorkshire, to see Cassiopeia for herself. 

This exclusive album combines Peel’s detailed, analogue synth layered production and her expressive flair for performance with ‘Tubular Brass’, featuring the top UK championship brass band players. It’s a wholly unique, collaborative sound and seemingly, a first of its kind both live and on record. Peel combines the unearthly sound textures and celestial ostinatos of the analogue synthesizers with the tremendously deep and rich power of traditional ‘British’ brass band to map Mary’s intergalactic passage into another world. 

A handful of special shows in 2017 around the UK with the full 29-piece Colliery band and synths will accompany the release including an appearance at Blue Dot Festival and WOMAD.

Andy Jenkins shares the making of his latest album 'Sweet Bunch' out 15th June 2018 via Spacebomb. Watch the Departure Point Films directed film above.

Sweet Bunch springs into the world fully-formed, the work of a confident, timeless as well as contemporary singer-songwriter, offering beautiful and basic melodies with lyrics exploring the fluidity between the banal and the sublime. His work feels natural, complete within itself, untrained musically but adherent to its own forms and intricate in its own ways. Spring peepers line the path; the author feeds her peacocks strutting among vines and ruins; a photographer waits for the right light and color in frame. Each song presents a rich, new tableau of sound, glowing worlds to discover, rooted in an unnamed sense of place.

LOW 'DOUBLE NEGATIVE' OUT 14TH SEPTEMBER 2018 (DOMINO PUBLISHING)

Low 'Double Negative'

On September 14th, Low will release 'Double Negative', the most brazen, abrasive (and, paradoxically, most empowering) album in their 25 year long career. As a prelude to the full-length album, Low presents a triptych video for the opening songs of the album. Watch “Quorum” “Dancing and Blood” and “Fly” above. 

To make Double Negative, Low reenlisted B.J. Burton, the adventurous producer who in recent years has made records with Bon Iver, Lizzo, and Francis and the Lights. Returning once again to Justin Vernon's April Base studio in Eau Claire, Wisconsin (where they recorded 2015’s Ones and Sixes) Alan Sparhawk, Mimi Parker, and bassist Steve Garrington knew they wanted to go further with Burton and his palette of sounds: they wanted to see what someone who is, as Sparhawk puts it, “a hip-hop guy” could truly do with their music. Rather than obsessively write and rehearse at home in Duluth, Minnesota, they would often head southeast to Eau Claire, arriving with sketches and ideas that they would work on for days with Burton. Band and producer became collaborative co-writers, building the pieces up and breaking them down until their purpose and force felt clear. The album cover for Double Negative was created by longtime collaborator, English artist, Peter Liversidge.

“Quorum” Directed & edited by Ben Chisholm, Filmed by Karlos Rene Ayala.

WATCHING MELODY'S ECHO CHAMBER 'CROSS MY HEART' (DOMINO ALL-IN)

Melody's Echo Chamber 'Cross My Heart'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

To celebrate the release of Bon Voyage, MEC aka Melody Prochet is pleased to share the video for ‘Cross My Heart’, the final instalment in a fairytale trilogy directed by Daniel Foothead. Watch above. 

Album opener ‘Cross My Heart’ is stylistically the most recognisable track on the new record, at least until an old skool hip hop breakdown midway through seems to bifurcate the old Melody from the new Melody. From then on in it’s an odyssey of aural iridescence where anything can happen and it usually does. Watch the previous videos for ‘Breathe In, Breathe Out’ and ‘Desert Horse’

Bon Voyage is a collaborative record between Prochet and Dungen’s Reine Fiske and The Amazing’s Fredrik Swahn with Melody sculpting and producing the sessions as well as encouraging the players around her to experiment, often with instruments that might be less familiar to them. It also features special guests Gustav Esjtes and Johan Holmegaard (both from Dungen) and Nicholas Allbrook (Pond).

VILLAGERS 'THE ART OF PRETENDING TO SWIM' OUT 21ST SEPTEMBER 2018 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

Villagers 'The Art Of Pretending To Swim'

Conor O’Brien announces the release of Villagers’ fourth studio album, The Art Of Pretending To Swim, released by Domino on Friday 21st September. Watch the video for 'A Trick Of Light' above.                                            

Following the exquisitely sparse, intimate aura of 2015’s Darling Arithmetic, O’Brien’s new record reconnects with the multi-faceted approach of Villagers’ 2010 album debut Becoming A Jackal and 2013’s {Awayland} while adding a new-found soulfulness, rhythmic nous and dazzling panoply of sonic detail, both analogue and digital, creating feverish moods while writing effortlessly accessible tunes. Balanced with subtle aspects and lyrical themes that embrace existential fears and hopes in this desperate, technologically-centred dystopian age, The Art Of Pretending To Swim is the most brilliantly realised Villagers album to date. The album was written, produced, mixed and primarily performed by Conor O’Brien in his Dublin studio.

The video for ‘A Trick of the Light’, the first single from the album, was directed by Bob Gallagher. Conor says of the collaboration:

Myself and Bob got together and discussed the song thematically and came to the conclusion that there was no other option but to make a short film in which we follow a dishevelled shamanistic protagonist who mysteriously triggers an altered state of consciousness in everyone he meets, or at least believes that he does. We also wanted lots of dancing and to inspire a general feeling of "what the hell did I just watch?" in the viewer.

O’Brien has a string of accolades under his belt including two Ivor Novello Awards (the most recent being 2016’s Album Award for Darling Arithmetic), two Mercury Music Prize nominations and is also a previous winner of Ireland’s Choice Music Prize. Additionally, Villagers’ music recently featured in the high profile HBO drama ‘Big Little Lies’, Conor has collaborated with the composer Nico Muhly (that track featuring in the forthcoming Paulo Sorrentino Berlusconi biopic ‘Loro 2’) and Villagers’ Spotify session of ‘Nothing Arrived’ has hit over 100 million streams.

ANNA CALVI 'HUNTER' OUT 31ST AUGUST 2018 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

Anna Calvi 'Hunter'

Anna Calvi announces her third album, 'Hunter', which will be released on 31st August 2018 via Domino. To mark the announcement she has shared the William Kennedy directed video for single 'Don’t Beat The Girl Out Of My Boy'. Watch above.

Produced by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, Grinderman) at Konk Studios in London with some further production in LA, the album was recorded with Anna's band - Mally Harpaz on various instruments and Alex Thomas on drums - with the addition of Adrian Utley from Portishead on keys and Martyn Casey from The Bad Seeds on bass. 

Hunter is the embodiment of the feeling of truly letting go. For the songwriter and virtuosic guitarist, it was a catharsis, an opportunity to be more truthful than ever. The first new music since 2014’s collaborative release with David Byrne, Strange Weather EP, her self-titled debut album and the 2013 follow-up One Breath, Hunter is a visceral album exploring sexuality and breaking the laws of gender conformity. A queer and a feminist record, it is galvanising in its hunt for freedom. It was important to Calvi that it was as vulnerable as it is strong; as beautiful as it is harsh; as much about the hunted as it is about the hunter. 

The first single, "Don’t Beat The Girl Out Of My Boy”. A battle cry with a rousing chorus, the song was partly written while thinking about how young children are when they’re conditioned to follow gender roles – in particular, the “heartbreaking” process through which small boys are taught not to cry or show emotions. Speaking about the track, Anna said the following: It’s a song about the defiance of happiness. It’s about being free to identify yourself in whichever way you please, without any restraints from society.”

Bob Moses 'Heaven Only Knows'

Bob Moses share new track, “Heaven Only Knows.” The song is the first new music from the band since their debut album, Days Gone By, featuring their worldwide hit “Tearing Me Up.” Listen above.

Bob Moses is the Vancouver-bred, Los Angeles-based duo of Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance. Born from the Brooklyn underground scene in 2012, the band’s early single releases on taste-making electronic label Scissor & Thread and captivating live performances led to signing with Domino and the release of Days Gone By. A standout performance on “Ellen,” a pair of nominations at both the Junos and the Grammys (and a Grammy win), and a top 15 US Alternative radio hit with "Tearing Me Up” soon followed.

Meshing guitar licks, dance-floor ambience and classic song writing, the duo created a sound that appeals equally to club goers and rock fans.
