Aldous Harding releases her second album, Party via 4AD. Following the recent single ‘Horizon’ – a lover’s call to arms which also features on her 4AD debut – a new track and video goes online today. Watch ‘Imagining My Man’ above.
Party was produced with the award-winning John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse) in Bristol, a world away from Harding’s New Zealand home. As well as contributions from Parish, Perfume Genius’s Mike Hadreas lends vocals to ‘Imagining My Man’ and Party closer ‘Swell Does The Skull’. Igniting interest with her eponymous debut album released just two years ago, Aldous Harding quickly became a name murmured on many lips. She’s known for her sinister torch songs, gentle laments and eerie odes delivered with a charismatic combination of hubris, shrewd wit and quiet horror. Party introduces a new talent to the stark and unpopulated dramatic realm where Kate Bush and Scott Walker reside.
Liverpool-based All We Are return with their startling new track ‘Burn It All Out’. It’s the trio’s first new music since their self-titled debut in 2015, and marks a shift in their sound – one that takes in psychedelia, krautrock and post-punk.
All We Are are Guro Gikling from Norway (vocals, bass), Luis Santos from Brazil (guitars) and Richard O’Flynn from Ireland (drums/vocals). ‘Burn It All Out’ sets the tone for their forthcoming second album – it reflects their increasing cohesiveness as a unit and their belief in the power of friendship and togetherness in a world intent on driving us apart.
On the first date of the band’s UK tour, Fránçois & The Atlas Mountains have shared their beautifully surreal video for, ‘Après Après’. The track is a stand-out, taken from their recently released 4th studio album, Solide Mirage. Fránçois stars in the video as a character very similar to (but not) Agent Cooper from Twin Peaks.
In François’ own words: “Time has come for you to seek the path. We have a new video, Agent Cooper 2.0 style!”
The Jesus And Mary Chain are set to release their long-awaited new album ‘Damage and Joy’ on March 24th on ADA / Warner Music. The album is their first since ‘Munki’ was released backed in the summer of 1998.
Fronted by the Reid brothers Jim and William, The Jesus And Mary Chain first reformed to play the Coachella festival back in 2007. Despite regular touring – most notably a 2015 world tour which revisited their landmark album ‘Psychocandy’ – it took some time before they could agree on a plan to record a much-mooted seventh album.
'Always Sad' is the second release from the new album adter the first single 'Amputation' which was released late last year. Watch the video above.
Yorkston/Thorne/Khan release their new album Neuk Wight Delhi All-Stars on 7th April. Itfollows the band’s debut, 2016’s critically acclaimed Everything Sacred, and presents a confluence of currents, among them the north Indian sarangi; jazz-tinged bass, reminiscent in places of Danny Thompson; acoustic guitar that owes a debt to Elizabeth Cotton, Dick Gaughan and Mississippi John Hurt; and three very different vocalists - James Yorkston (East Neuk of Fife), Jon Thorne (Isle of Wight) and Suhail Yusuf Khan (New Delhi).
Joe Goddard has shared the video for his brand new single, Home. Featuring vocals from bright, new, Michigan born vocalist Daniel Wilson, this disco-sampling deep house banger is all about that long cab ride home through London after a night out clubbing.
Thanks to Pete Fowler’s brilliantly trippy animations, the journey starts here on earth (as it usually does), before we’re transported into a world of purple dinosaurs raving on clouds and floating DJ booths.
Home is taken from Joe’s forthcoming solo album Electric Lines which is out on 21st April, 2017 via Domino.
