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.

SPINNING COIN 'HYACINTH' OUT 21ST FEBRUARY 2020 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

On February 21st, Spinning Coin will release their second album Hyacinth via Geographic. A brave step forward, Hyacinth is an album full of poetry, light and warmth of heart, and presents a band holding nothing back. It registers a number of changes for the group since their debut LP Permo in 2017: personnel changes, geographical changes, a new context, an ever-changing world outside. Watch the video for 'Feel You More Than World Now' above.

The quartet both lost and gained a member, with Cal Donnelly exiting the group, and Rachel Taylor joining. Rachel and Sean Armstrong have relocated, leaving Glasgow for Berlin – Rachel, from Canada, had no choice but to leave the UK, and Sean followed her. “I think if anything the change has brought us closer as a band,” Rachel reflects, “and made it clear to us that we wanted to continue making music together". 

Today, Spinning Coin are pleased to share the first song from Hyacinth born of this new set up, “Feel You More Than World Right Now”. With an animated video directed by Joseph May, “Feel You More Than World Right Now” is an Armstrong penned song – now one of three songwriters in the band alongside Jack Mellin and Taylor.

Throughout Hyacinth, there is joy in spades, but also melancholy, and a checked fury, threading the group’s political vision through their reflections on the personal and the interpersonal. Jack explains that the new songs are about the need for love in an often very unloving world. Trying to find a balance of some kind between feelings of apathy, negativity, detachment and action, positivity and oneness.” Whilst Mellin’s songs were more pointedly political on Permo, here he has built more complexity into his writing. Elsewhere, Rachel contributes her first song to a Spinning Coin release, in the form of the beautiful “Black Cat”. 

Hyacinth was recorded during a few days, by Peter Deimel at Black Box Studios in France, while the group were on a summertime tour. It was an idyll, a restorative respite. That carries through to the album, there’s a sense of society and collectivism at the heart of these pop songs, and a commentary on the optimism of the will, no matter how bleak things can get. Ultimately, on Hyacinth, the Spinning Coin ethos stays true to itself, as Sean expands about the experiences and the motivations behind the new music: “It’s trying to connect with other people on a human level, doing something that we love, and trying to embrace the unknown.

YORKSTON THORNE KHAN 'NAVARASA : NINE EMOTIONS' OUT 24TH JANUARY 2020 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

Yorkston/Thorne/Khan - James Yorkston (guitar/nyckelharpa/vocals), Jon Thorne (double-bass/vocals) and Suhail Yusuf Khan (sarangi/vocals) - are pleased to announce their new album Navarasa : Nine Emotions out on January 24th. Listen to 'Westlin Winds' above. 

At the heart of YTK’s transporting new album is the subcontinent’s navarasa; the nine (nava) emotions or sentiments (rasa) of the arts. This central unifying underpinning is a centuries-old organising principle. The individual artistic emotions range from Shringara (love, beauty) through Hasya (laughter, mirth, comedy), Raudra (anger), Karuna (sorrow, compassion or mercy), Bibhatsya (disgust), Bhayanaka (horror, terror), Veera (heroism, courage), Adbutha (surprise, wonder) to Shanta (peace, tranquillity). Each song on YTK’s new album is connected to one of these emotions, and the first track to be shared from Navarasa : Nine Emotions is “Westlin’ Winds”, paired with Adbutha.

“Westlin’ Winds” starts with the life-destroying Act I of Robert Burns’ poem ‘Now Westlin Winds, (And Slaught’ring Guns)’ and deliciously transplants its disjoined, nature-extolling and life-affirming Act II onto Indian soil with a composition “in Purbi, a specific dialect of old Hindi. I learnt the song,” says Suhail, “by listening to various qawwali [Muslim devotional song] singers singing at Hazrat Nizammuddin’s dargah [shrine] in Delhi. Its source is Hazrat Amir Khusrau.” Thus YTK unite one of the key spiritual visionaries and architects of Hindustani art music, the poet-philosopher Hazrat Amir Khusrau with the key literary visionary of Scottish and Scots-language culture, Robert Burns.

This bricolage of diverse cross-cultural elements is apparent across Navarasa : Nine Emotions and all of what YTK create. James Yorkston weaves in Scottish folk, sangster and literary strands. Jon Thorne is grounded in jazz and groove. What the New Delhi-based, eighth-generation hereditary musician Suhail Yusuf Khan brings to this feast of pulses and cycles is northern Indian classical, light classical (thumri, for example) and Sufi devotional musical and literary forms. What binds these diverse musical strands together is, in James’ phrase, “a dark happiness”.

As autumn draws in, Villagers are pleased to announce The Sunday Walker EP. The four tracks collected are primarily songs recorded around the time of The Art Of Pretending To Swim sessions – Conor O’Brien’s acclaimed fourth album, released last year. Listen to 'Did You Know?' above. 

In Conor’s words: “The tracks that fell through the cracks; it turns out they had their own story to tell. The Sunday Walker EP is a collection of lost songs as much as it is an emotional arc. Songs of loss and songs of realisation. Songs of empathy and isolation.” Villagers head out on a European tour later this week including the renowned Rolling Stone Festival in Germany before returning to Ireland for a run of sold out shows in Dublin and Cork in December.

ONE TRUE PAIRING 'I'M NOT AFRAID (REMIXES)' OUT 1ST NOVEMBER 2019 (DOMINO ALL-IN)

One True Pairing 'I'm Not Afraid (Remixes)'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Following the recent release of his acclaimed debut album, One True Pairing aka Tom Fleming – former Wild Beasts songwriter, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist – has shared new remixes of “I’m Not Afraid” by Clarence Clarity and Ed Nash (Bombay Bicycle Club).

Clarence Clarity works “I’m Not Afraid” into a glitching and twisted bombastic pop song whilst Ed Nash plays with Fleming’s recognisable baritone vocal taking it to deeper and stranger places.

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."

Panda Bear is proud to present A Day with the Homies (Digital Mix), an EP featuring brand new mixes of the much sought after 12” exclusive EP released in January 2018.  Fresh from co-producing and co-mixing Panda Bear’s most recent album Buoys and new single “Playing the Long Game,” Rusty Santos has mixed the A Day with the Homies (Digital Mix) EP – whereas the original 12” was self-produced and mixed by Lennox. 

Frequent visuals collaborator Danny Perez (see “Buoys” video) has directed a video for each of the five songs on the EP. On the videos, Lennox notes:

“Danny and I have talked for a while about trying to make something together that reflects what we do at the shows and because Homies is a favourite of his, I thought the streaming release of it might be a good place to do so. We hope you all enjoy it and our best to you and yours. happy halloween…"

Dan Deacon announces Mystic Familiar, his new album out January 31st on Domino records and the lead single/video “Sat By A Tree,”. Watch above.

Mystic Familiar takes a propulsive leap with the robot-performed drums and soaring melodies of “Sat By a Tree.” Lyrically, the song conjures campfire reflections on key memories with the hard-won clarity of time, a dialogue with an anthropomorphic tree on chilling out, and befores and afters of life and death. The video, directed by Daren Rabinovitch of film and animation studio Encyclopedia Pictura and starring comedian Aparna Nancherla, uses natural world elements, vivid colors, and a cartoon-like aesthetic to reflect on time and the precious shortness of life (not for those with an aversion to bugs).
