London based trio The Wave Pictures - Jonny Helm (drums), Dave Tattersall (guitar & vocals) and Franic Rozycki (bass) - return with their brand new album Bamboo Diner in The Rain due out on Moshi Moshi. Following on from last year’s Billy Childish collaboration Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon and their recent acoustic record A Season in Hull, Bamboo Diner in the Rain sees The Wave Pictures battling against the robot music apocalypse. The new album is a bluesy, boozy love letter to the guitar, filled with American Primitive instrumentals, John Lee Hooker chugs and Link Wray style minor-key surf music.

As songwriter and guitarist Dave Tattersall explains: 

The Wave Pictures are strange: an indie rock band with absolutely no indie rock influences. For years, all we’ve listened to has been the classic blues and rock and roll of America in the 50s and 60s. And yet, we’re always disliked those retro acts who slavishly copy the look and the sound, the haircuts and the fonts of the past, but miss the unfettered spirit of the music they love. We have a style of our own already, the way your eyes have a colour. We don’t want to be a blues band. But the blues is there, at the invisible core of everything we do. We love it. 

You see, these days the kids like their music to be made by machines, even when it pretends otherwise. The kids don’t seem to fear the machines (as I do, having been so profoundly affected at a young age by the first two Terminator movies) and so they happily switch on their computers and listen to robots singing. Well, one day those robots will rise up and kill us all. Listen instead, kids, to The Wave Pictures, the band that will someday soundtrack the resistance. We are the real thing, you know. The only reason the press haven’t noticed is that they are besotted with the machine music of robots, too. Ah, but no robot could swing the way Franic Rozycki swings his tugboat bass on a mighty blues-rock anthem such as “Now I Want To Hoover My Brain Clean” or “Panama Hat”, which will not sound right until it is heard crackling through a broken radio in a burned out basement after the robot apocalypse, a last little sign of human life on earth. The resistance starts here.

This is the most personal album I’ve made so far. In fact, that’s the whole idea of the band, to become more and more authentically ourselves on record. To grow inwards. Like everything on this dark and strange little album. It’s not robot music.

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.

WATCHING JON HOPKINS 'SINGULARITY' (DOMINO ALL-IN)

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.”

Between them, Haiku Salut play accordion, piano, glockenspiel, trumpet, guitar, ukulele, drums, and melodica. Their music also features electronic elements, which they refer to as "loopery and laptopery". Influenced by the evocative film soundtracks of Yann Tiersen and Benoît Charest, the genre-melting electronica of early Múm, and the impressionistic writing of Haruki Murakami, the band released their debut album Tricolore in 2013, to critical acclaim, which was followed in 2015 by the equally acclaimed Etch And Etch Deep (“the album Four Tet might have made after Rounds” – The Observer). 

This year’s release, There Is No Elsewhere, is Haiku Salut’s first album for neo-classical and electronica label PRAH Recordings and sees the trio continue their distinctive re-imagining of dreampop and rural electronica. It also sees the band finally find their place, both musically and politically.
