-Self-directed, SASAMI says of the video: “Everyone has a destructive, reckless side- however much they choose or allow the world to see it. The video for ‘Take Care’ is about embracing that destructive side of you and forgiving yourself. Even when you are lost and want to give up, loving yourself and forgiving. Also there’s a little reminder to donate to RAICESTEXAS.COM because once you help yourself, you need to help others.”

L.A. Salami ‘L.A. Salami's Walkabout EP’
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE


L.A. Salami pushes his elegantly haunted poetry to the foreground with his new EP ‘L.A. Salami’s Walkbout’, which will be released on September 27th via Sunday Best. The release has been launched with its lead track ‘Tinder’. Set to a bluesy backing loop, the track ruminates on the nature of Tinder and the wider world of dating apps. Listen above.

His evocative, poetic lyrics span everything from grand existential questions to vignettes of everyday life as well as the affairs and anxieties of modern Britain. Set in “some nameless generic megacity”, the seven-track EP focuses on the experiences of Papalious Stokely. Equipped with little more than a pocket-sized bottle of brandy for company and comfort, Papalious Stokely explores the dirty extremes of this tired metropolis: a sprawling sea of cheap hookers, cocaine habits, whisky bottles, knife violence, jacked up hack ideologies, street gangs and inspirational hooligans.

Echoing the distant spirit of Jack Kerouac reciting conscious poetry to the rhythm and colour of the jazz bands of the era, this is a walk through L.A. Salami’s own subconscious stream with Butcher Pete (better known as Petter Grevelious from Francobollo) providing the beats. Papa Stokely wrote half of the EP, while his disconcerting doppelganger L.A. Salami crafted the rest.

"I mean, a lot of the people in the video didn’t even know we were making a music video till after its that candid…overall I feel like the whole song and video simply reflects on what I’ve been up to this summer between all the hustles/shows and my feelings to just keep going with a positive mindset despite any losses…hence the title: Take an L, Smoke an L (TLSL)..."

BLUE HAWAII 'OPEN REDUCTION INTERNAL FIXATION' OUT 11TH OCTOBER 2019 (DOMINO PUBLISHING)

Blue Hawaii 'Open Reduction Internal Fixation'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Blue Hawaii return with their fourth studio album 'Open Reduction Internal Fixation' out 11th October via Arbutus Records, to mark the announcement they have released the track 'All That Blue', watch above. 

Spanning genres as diverse as trance, acoustic, UK garage, trip-hop and house, its core elements are lighthearted and groovy. But oddly, “Open Reduction Internal Fixation” was born out of unfortunate circumstance. The duo were scheduled to tour through Southeast Asia & Japan in Autumn ’18 but plans changed suddenly when Agor smashed up his heel in Germany. Instead of the tour, he came back to Montreal for treatment - hence the title - “Open Reduction Internal Fixation”, the foot surgery he received.

Ra was going through her own challenges at this time, being on the heel end of a messy breakup - the kind where you almost get married and spend your life together only to find everything torched to ashes. Much like the surgery, that emotional rollercoaster also left her feeling torn open and fixated. The remedy: hit the club and make a record that makes you scream in joy at the speakers. Agor and Ra connected during their recovery periods, and through their different pains the tunes came together naturally, a healing through fun and friendship. Tied together with signature diva vocals, dreamy tones and liquid beats, “Open Reduction Internal Fixation” is the living proof of turning a bummer situation into a golden opportunity.

Blue Hawaii is a two person electronic project consisting of Ra and Ag, who met doing parties and shows in Montreal and continue to create together despite living in separate cities - split between Montreal and Berlin. “Open Reduction Internal Fixation” is their fourth LP and continues the thread of dreamy electronic pop and dance floor playability.

LOWER DENS 'GALAPAGOS' OUT 20TH AUGUST 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO PUBLISHING
Lower Dens 'Galapagos'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Four years since their critically acclaimed album, Escape From Evil, Lower Dens recently announced their newest creation -- The Competition -- which will be released on Ribbon Music on September 6th.  Lower Dens share a third taste of the album in the form of a glistening, synth-pop careen called “Galapagos.” Listen above.

Lower Dens also recently announced they will be hitting the road upon the album’s release supporting Of Monsters And Men in addition to three very special release shows in Los Angeles and Baltimore respectively.  All dates are below.

The Competition is a pop album with a concept both emotionally and politically urgent. By design, competition is the driving force of modern capitalism, and the title is lead singer and songwriter Jana Hunter’s (pronouns: they/them, him/his) term for a socio-psychological phenomenon this generates, a kind of psychosis that accelerates our insecurities and anxieties to the point of total overload, corroding our intimacies, our communities, and our senses of self.

Hunter says, “The issues that have shaped my life, for better or for worse, have to do with coming from a family and a culture that totally bought into this competitive mindset.  I was wild and in a lot of pain as a kid; home life was very bleak, and pop songs were a guaranteed escape to a mental space where beauty, wonder, and love were possible.  I wanted to write songs that might have the potential to do that.”

Indeed, The Competition might be Hunter’s most vulnerable, hook-filled album yet, a leftfield, resistance pop record that could only be released in 2019.

MICHAELA ANNE 'DESERT DOVE' OUT 27TH SEPTEMBER 2019 (DOMINO PUBLISHING/YEP ROC)

DOMINO PUBLISHING
Michaela Anne 'Desert Dove'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE
 
Michaela Anne is proud to debut 'By Our Design', the single is the newest from her upcoming album Desert Dove, out September 27th on Yep Roc Records. Watch the video above.
 
Recorded over the course of several weeks in San Clemente, California, Desert Dove was completed “on location” with the help of an all-star cast. Producers Sam Outlaw and Delta Spirit’s Kelly Winrich assembled guitarist Brian Whelan (Dwight Yoakam, Jim Lauderdale), fiddler Kristin Weber (Kacey Musgraves, Margo Price), and drummers Mark Stepro (Ben Kweller, Butch Walker) and Daniel Bailey (Everest, Father John Misty) to address this batch of songs with a fresh take, not leaning too hard on traditional arrangements or instrumentation. “Child of the Wind” is a great example of this; using a chunky, fuzzy electric guitar in place of what could have been a pedal steel or fiddle intro, adding sonic and tonal variables to the breadth of Michaela Anne’s range of characters and motifs.
 
Amidst the ups and downs of Desert Dove, there is a recurring focus on the emotions that fall in between peaks and valleys. “This record, for me, highlights the gray area, the nuance of emotional life and relationships that seems to be harder to convey in today’s modes of communication and limited attention spans: short excerpts on Instagram or Twitter paragraphs,” says Michaela Anne. “Nothing is black and white, solely good or bad. Who we are, how we live, how we love, what we desire or reject, it’s all full of contradictions and confusions. I wanted to explore that through my songs with care, depth, reality as well as light-heartedness, fun and fantasy.”
 
Michaela Anne also attacks most of the album with a sharp feminine perspective, dealing out wisdom, confidence, and sass with authority and maturity that is never tiresome. The easiest example of this is Michaela Anne’s light-hearted rebuttal to condescension and “mansplaining” with “If I Wanted Your Opinion,” but her stance drives deeper with each new song, all the way through the end of Desert Dove. “When I got to Nashville, I was told the ‘rules’ of songwriting,” Michaela recounts. “I was informed that a woman in a country song can never be the victim, but she can also never be the perpetrator. That’s not real life. As a woman, sometimes you’re everything all at once, and I wanted to write about those real experiences.”

Jack Klatt has announced the release of his eagerly awaited new album. IT AIN'T THE SAME arrives everywhere via Yep Roc Records on Friday, September 27. It Ain't the Same is preceded by the premiere of a raucous new single "Prove My Love"; the track is joined by an equally rockin' companion video, co-starring Minneapolis-based artist Alberta Mirais, watch above.

"'Prove My Love' is a pure and simple rock n' roll song about the push and pull of romance," says Klatt. "What beer way to visually capture the joy and chaos of love then two people dancing together? We shot the video on the night of the summer solstice at a fabrication shop that I work at in North East Minneapolis
when I'm not on the road. It was a hot night and many beverages were consumed while me and Alberta Mirais danced the night into day. I couldn't dream of doing something like this with anyone but her. She is most assuredly the star of the show."

Hailed by Rift Magazine for "great songs with witty lyrics" and "one helluva guitarist to boot," Klatt will herald IT AIN'T THE SAME with an array of upcoming live dates, beginning with an August run alongside Parker Millsap and then followed in September by a series of dates supporting Pokey LaFarge.

GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

London based producer and DJ O’Flynn has announced his debut album ‘Aletheia’, to be released 6th September 2019 on Silver Bear Recordings, and shared the second single ‘Painted Wolf’, out 21st June 2019. Listen to Painted Wolf above. 

His latest release follows a series of acclaimedproductions which explored his wide-ranging style:from squelchy acid on Ninja Tune to loose and luscious jazz on Blip Discs, as well as the high-octane 12” released on his own Hundred Flowers imprint earlier this year. With his new single O’Flynn honesin on the expansive electronica style found on his previous 12” single, ‘Sunspear’. Continuing his recontextualisation of evocative world music samples combinedwith layers of percussion, O’Flynn builds a fluid but powerful energy on heady club cut ‘Painted Wolf’. Painted Wolf has been 4 years in the making. The longest I've ever taken to finish an idea. It was probably my follow up to Desmond’s Empire in terms of style. This is my attempt to deliver something new to the world."

With standout 12” debuts ‘Tyrion’ and ‘Desmond’s Empire’ in 2015, O’Flynn quickly established his reputation as “one of dance music’s most prosperous newcomers”, as put by Boiler Room. Having gained support from Four Tet, Gilles Peterson, Bonobo, Denis Sulta, James Blake and Hessle Audio and his debut album forthcoming, he continues his musical evolution to become a resonant force within dance music.

ONE TRUE PAIRING 'ONE TRUE PAIRING' OUT 20TH SEPTEMBER 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

DOMINO ALL-IN
One True Pairing 'One True Pairing'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Tom Fleming will release his debut solo album under the guise One True Pairing. The former Wild Beasts songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist shared the first taste of his new direction earlier this month with “One True Pairing”, the titular track of the upcoming record. Watch the music video above. 

Today, Fleming is pleased to share the second song from the self-titled album, “I’m Not Afraid”. With its refrain - “We’ve been kicked our whole lives and I’m not afraid, But I won’t go back down to that place again” - Tom sets his intention for One True Pairing.

“I wanted to write about the real world, I didn't want it to be an artistic, poised, tasteful record, it’s neo-heartland rock" says Tom Fleming. "One True Pairing is a name taken from internet fan fiction, where you write the perfect relationship you always wished existed. The idea of Prince Charming and Helpless Princess living happily after is no fun at all.”

Tom’s musical touchstones were Bruce Springsteen, Don Henley, Tom Petty alongside Depeche Mode and Swans. He wrote and played everything himself and then brought in Ben Hillier (Nadine Shah, Graham Coxon) on mixing and production duties.

One True Pairing is an album shaped by class frustration and self-despair and there is a continuation of the exploration of masculinity that made Wild Beasts so unique. As well as being deeply personal, OTP has a wider political resonance. "This country is going through a terrible moment and if you listen to the art nobody seems to give a shit,” Fleming says emphatically. He believes that class is entirely discounted from the current conversation about inclusivity and privilege. In its 11 songs of discordant guitar and aggressive synth Fleming channels his discontent with Britain in 2019 and a “feeling of directionless rage and cheatedness which hasn't gone away."

Anna Calvi is pleased to announce that she has written and performed the score for the entire new season of BBC One’s Peaky Blinders. Peaky Blinders had its season 5 premiere in Birmingham yesterday evening, where Anna Calvi joined the cast and director Anthony Byrne on the red carpet.

Previously a fan of the series, Calvi said on writing the original score: “This is a new thing for me but it was a really good fit, I love everything about the show. I completely immersed myself in it and became quite obsessed with the characters, especially Tommy Shelby [played by Cillian Murphy] and getting lost in his mind.” 

Anna adds: “There is a duality to the show, a beauty and a brutality, which I have been exploring in my own music and on the ‘Hunter’ album. I want to say thank you to the director Anthony Byrne for believing in me and letting me seek out what I needed to.”

Read Anna and Anthony’s exclusive interviews with NME here.

Anna Calvi’s first score for television follows the release of her critically acclaimed third album Hunter. Calvi is a previous Brit Award nominee and has been shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize twice.

Warmduscher’s release their new single 'Midnight Dipper' and announce their upcoming album 'Tainted Lunch' out 1st November 2019 via Leaf Label. Watch the video featuring Iggy Pop above. 

Do you know that sinewy young fellow ploughing his way though the fields? Why, it’s Walt Clipper, and he has something to say. An armful of methamphetamine and a satchel full of anabolic steroids, driving a seven-wheeled behemoth at light-speed along a crystal highway. He is that neural terrorist of unknowing wisdom. Your friend and mine. Won’t you hear his story?  

Let me tell you, morning is the time for breakfast and I am just in time for tea. ‘Midnight Dipper’ has set a new bar for myself, the altruistic lust-conduit, to leap over. I have attempted to raise my limp and worthless body from my chair several times in a futile bid to resume the dance of my forebears, but to no avail. I end up, still, a used tissue of a man, crumpled on the floor, calling for help. 

If Warmduscher’s music can do this to an individual such as myself, imagine what it will do when played live in the discotheques and dancehalls of Berlin, Paris, Ghent and Jalalabad… rammed music-halls around the globe will tremble and swell with rapturous applause. ‘Head pulled back, eyes closed tight…’, our magnificent orator, Clams Baker Jr. III commands, this is how you must listen, dear reader. This is how you must live. Dr. Alan Goldfarb, 2019.

(Sandy) Alex G has shared a new track and accompanying video, “Hope”, from his forthcoming album, House of Sugar.

(Sandy) Alex G, a.k.a. the singer, songwriter, and musician Alex Giannascoli, began writing the songs that would ultimately become House of Sugar in the fall of 2017. Whereas with earlier efforts, such as 2011’s self-released Winner or the landmark 2014 release DSU, music was written and recorded at a prolific clip, with these new songs Giannascoli approached the recording process with a newfound deliberateness, concentrating on a smaller collection of songs and laboring over each with more focus and acuity than ever before.

 Giannascoli worked closely with Jacob Portrait, who mixed both Rocket and 2015’s Beach Music, and helped to balance each of House of Sugar’s dense, multi-faceted tracks. As the product of extended focus and planning, House of Sugar emerges as Giannascoli’s most meticulous, cohesive album yet: a statement of artistic purpose, showing off his ear for both persistent earworms and shifting textures, and the out-there sonic adventurism that’s made previous (Sandy) Alex G records so singular.

For just over an hour, they take us on a sprawling wonderful journey, arriving at what is a majestic body of work; their personal and collective experiences and inspirations over the last half decade or so.

On “I Drive,” Jana Hunter sings inquisitively “We had streets. But now there’s just police.  I drive at night.

On “I Drive”, Hunter says, “Like a lot of queer and trans people, I've learned that real family is made, and it isn't necessarily blood. Even my blood relatives, we work for that familial connection and trust. This song is about leaving behind obligations to people who don't love or care about you, being with and about people who do. It's a feeling so strong it's driving me. That's the driving I'm doing."

Villagers are pleased to share a brand new single, “Summer’s Song”. Featuring a chorus of six flugelhorns, “Summer’s Song” was written and produced by Conor O’Brien and mixed by the legendary Dave Fridmann (Tame Impala, Flaming Lips, MGMT). Watch the video above.

In Conor’s words: “Summer's Song is the closest I'll ever get to writing a pure pop song. I just had to roll with it and I'm glad I did; it was really just an excuse to make the horns sound like sunbeams. Boy it's fun to play live. I can't quite believe we managed to get the magical touch of Dave Fridmann in on the mix”. The video - animated by Joe May and illustrated by Patricio Bauzá - is equally drenched with memories of summers past and anticipation of those to come.

Fresh from supporting Mumford & Sons on their recent UK arena tour, Villagers will be playing shows throughout the summer including a sold-out gig at Dublin’s glorious Iveagh Gardens (his biggest ever headline - 4000 cap).  A European tour including Paradiso, Amsterdam and the Rolling Stone Weekenders in Germany have also been announced for November.

Villagers released their acclaimed fourth album The Art Of Pretending To Swim last year and O’Brien has a string of accolades under his belt including two Ivor Novello Awards, two Mercury Music Prize nominations and is a previous winner of Ireland’s Choice Music Prize.

Additionally, Villagers’ music has featured in both seasons of HBO drama ‘Big Little Lies’ – reaching the Top 60 Shazam charts in the UK and US last month - and their Spotify session of “Nothing Arrived” has hit over 130 million streams.

Hot Chip recently released A Bath Full Of Ecstasy, their brilliant seventh album and 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. Ahead of their show at Glastonbury, the band have shared a video for album track “Spell”, Watch above.

Directed by Simon Owens, the video for “Spell” takes the lyrics “Like a spell you are under | And now I feel your curse / It’s all that I wanted / A memory in reverse / Forever I’m haunted” and twists them into a weird and warped bedroom that wouldn’t be out of place in an Evil Dead film.

Having originally started life as a track for Katy Perry (Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard contributed to her 2017 album Witness), “Spell” showcases some of the more experimental vocal production found on A Bath Full of Ecstasy. Taylor’s vocals are manipulated to be playful and free, without obfuscating the words; harking to Prince’s gender-bending infectious lust.

BILL RYDER-JONES 'YAWNY YAWN' OUT 26TH JULY 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

At the end of 2018, Bill Ryder-Jones released the critically acclaimed Yawn – his beautiful fourth album. He has now reimagined the songs from Yawn, this time with only vocals and piano, opening an even more intimate window onto his world. Taking inspiration from The Beach Boys, Bill has titled this alternative version of the record Yawny Yawn and it will be released on July 26th. The first track to recieve a reimagining is 'Don't Be Scared, I Love you' which can be watched above.

In his own inimitable style, Bill Ryder-Jones says: “I can't remember why I thought it was a good idea to make a piano version of Yawn, I presume at some point I felt that the original had too much pep. Was actually quite fun to make although I've since developed a dislike for the way my hands look”. 

Similarly to Yawn, the album artwork for Yawny Yawn features a family photo. Bill adds: “Much like the artwork for Yawn, this photo just looked like it should be an album cover. Whereas Yawn featured my brother, our babysitter and myself in the background, the artwork for Yawny Yawn shows me at my aunt's house aged 3 and playing my keyboard.” 

Multi-instrumentalist, producer, string-arranger and composer Bill Ryder-Jones has had a career spanning 15 years, a rarity in a world that so often looks to the new.  From his musical interpretation of Italo Calvino’s ‘If On A Winters Night A Traveller' (If… in 2011), 2013’s A Bad Wind Blows In My Heart, West Kirby County Primary (2015) and last year’s Yawn, Bill has constantly widened his scope, weaving in an overarching sense of authenticity, intimacy and wryness as he goes.
