Domino announces Can You Really Find Me, the new album from Night Moves, due for release on June 28th. Accompanying the news of the album comes new track “Strands Align” and its’ Cameron Dutra-directed video, starring John Pelant and Micky Alfano from the band as well as actor Chris Mulkey (Twin Peaks, Whiplash, Boardwalk Empire). Watch above.

Night Moves new album, Can You Really Find Me, pulsates and glows with the same sublime energy that radiated from breakout single “Carl Sagan” in 2016, however in the intervening years, John Pelant and Micky Alfano have grown up. The songwriting, while still steeped in super-catchy, velvety riffs and pure pop glaze, feels more sophisticated and modern. Since the pair met in high school, awestruck by such ear-candy wizards as Brian Wilson, Todd Rundgren, Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham, they set off to craft their version of what sophisticated, emotional modern pop music can and should sound like. 2016’s Pennied Days was a breakthrough, and set a new bar for the members of Night Moves. After spending the subsequent two years on Can You Really Find Me, they’ve scaled new heights, where the sounds are still just as sweet, but now smarter, more evocative, and perfectly designed for a summer release. 

Can You Really Find Me was produced by Jim Eno (founding member and drummer of Spoon) out of Public Hi-Fi Studios in Austin, TX and recorded with live band members Mark Hanson and Chuck Murlowski

PETER PERRETT 'HUMANWORLD' OUT 7TH JUNE 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

Peter Perrett returns once again with Humanworld, out on the 7th June via Domino. Watch the music video for the album’s opening track, ‘I Want Your Dreams’, above.

One of the recent past’s most unexpected come-back stories, Peter Perrett – former frontman of The Only Ones - resurfaced in 2017 with How The West Was Won, an album that saw him chart in the UK, star on BBC Newsnight, sell out rooms at Electric Ballroom and Islington Assembly Hall, and collect accolades across the board.

In this new chapter, Peter continues to dissect romance and politics with his trademark sense of sardonic wit and wry humour, if not with more vigour even and a palpable sense of immediacy. Peter adds, “This record has got more urgency and the songs are more concise. Don’t like words such as progression but I hope this is texturally and sonically more interesting than How The West Was Won.”

Peter’s band includes his guitar and bass playing sons Jamie and Peter Jr, drummer Jake Woodward, Jenny Maxwell (Microkorg synthesiser, viola, BVs) and Lauren Moon (keys, drums, BVs) - a tight-knit bunch who have honed this album and the previous one with choice live performances here and in Europe.

Following the years of possibly having too much fun, Peter Perrett is in the process of rebuilding himself, his family, and his art. Working with his sons and fronting another great band, he’s firmly back on track. Humanworld features a production credit for Peter’s son Jamie who also contributes a song to the album (‘Master of Destruction’); and the story of knitting a family back together following a history of chaos and addiction now takes a step closer to centre stage.

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.

Hot Chip will release their electrifying seventh album, A Bath Full of Ecstasy, on June 21st. Their third album for Domino, A Bath Full of Ecstasy is the group’s definitive release, crystallising the sound they’ve become celebrated for – bridging euphoria and melancholy with colourful melodies, idiosyncratic vocalisations and pounding electronic pop rhythms. Watch the Saman Kesh directed music video above.

Recorded in Paris and London, the album sees the group (Owen Clarke, Al Doyle Joe Goddard, Felix Martin and Alexis Taylor) open up to a more adventurous and collaborative song-writing process, choosing to work with outside producers for the first time: Philippe Zdar, the French maestro who’s shaped the magic of Cassius and Phoenix, and Rodaidh McDonald, the Scot who’s collaborated with The XX, David Byrne and Sampha, among others.

Today, the band share the first song from the record, ‘Hungry Child’; for 6 glorious minutes, Hot Chip fuse the uplifting soft pads and melodic keys of classic soulful house and the percussive swing of UK garage, full of sweet vocalisations and rhythmic snaps, to make an instant, club-ready hit. The video for ‘Hungry Child’ is directed by Saman Kesh and features Martin Starr and Milana Vayntrub.

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

DOMINO ALL-IN
Hayden Thorpe 'Diviner'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

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.

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.”

Little Cub 'Millennium People'

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”.

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.

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.

STEPHEN MALKMUS 'GROOVE DENIED' OUT 15TH MARCH 2019 (DOMINO RECORDINGS)

DOMINO RECORDINGS
Stephen Malkmus 'Groove Denied'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

The secret electronic album that Stephen Malkmus has been telling everyone about will see the light of day on March 15th, when it’s released on Domino. The first taste of Stephen’s new groove comes with the release of single ‘Viktor Borgia’, and its accompanying video starring Stephen alone in a dance club. Watch above. 

The title playfully merges the name of the comedian-pianist and the ruthless dynasty of Italo-Spanish nobles. With its stately melody and the almost-English-accented vocal, the coordinates here are early Human League or even Men Without Hats. “I was thinking things like Pete Shelley’s ‘Homosapien’, the Human League, and DIY synth music circa 1982,” says Stephen, adding “and also about how in the New Wave Eighties, these suburban 18-and-over dance clubs were where all the freaks would meet – a sanctuary.”

Groove Denied will shake up settled notions of what Malkmus is about and what he’s capable of, repositioning him in the scheme of things. But looking at it from a different angle, his engagement with state-of-art digital tech actually makes perfect sense. After all, Nineties lo-fi – the sound in which he and Pavement were initially vaunted as leaders and pioneers - was nothing if not insistently sonic – it was all about the grain of guitar textures, about gratuitously over-done treatments and ear-grabbing effects. Noise for noise’s sake. As Stephen tweeted recently on the subject of Auto-Tune’s omnipresence in contemporary music-making: “We long 4 transformation....and we humans fucking luv tools.”

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.

From the bold strokes of opening track ‘Fixture Picture’, there is an overriding sense of an enigmatic artist confident in their work, with contributions from Huw Evans (H.

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.

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.”

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.

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.
