Cat Power, the vocalist, songwriter, musician, and producer Chan Marshall, will release her new album Wanderer on October 5th 2018, via Domino. Watch an introduction to Wanderer directed by Greg Hunt above. 

Produced in its entirety by Marshall, Wanderer includes appearances by longtime friends and compatriots, as well as guest vocals courtesy of friend and recent tour-mate Lana Del Rey. Written and recorded in Miami and Los Angeles over the course of the last few years, the new album Wanderer is a remarkable return from an iconic American voice.  

Wanderer’s 11 tracks encompass “my journey so far,” says Marshall. “The course my life has taken in this journey - going from town to town, with my guitar, telling my tale; with reverence to the people who did this generations before me. Folk singers, blues singers, and everything in between. They were all wanderers, and I am lucky to be among them.”

Following the release of standalone single ‘Broken’ at the end of 2017, Patrick Watson shares Melody Noir’, a brand new second single and video directed by himself and Brigitte Poupart. “This song was inspired by an incredible singer from Venezuela, Simon Diaz. I was so inspired by his music I had to write a tune,” explains Watson. “It’s a love song dedicated to the hole inside of you.” Watch above.

The video was shot in Montreal and was “inspired by an amazing film called ‘I am Cuba’,” adds Watson. “I wanted to make a sensual but surreal dance video, where the main character slowly gets eaten by a void, embodied by the other dancers. The dancers are a wonderful Colombian dance troupe who bring a mix of classical and modern elements to the piece. I hope you enjoy.”

Patrick has been busy on various projects since the critically acclaimed release of his fifth album, Love Songs for Robots. 2017’s ‘Broken’ was featured in many TV series including Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Doctor and Burden of Truth. He was part of the cast as a performer for the circus show Rêveurs définitifs, embarked on the Canadian C3 boat for a 2 week run to raise awareness on Diversity and Inclusion, Reconciliation, Youth Engagement and the Environment, performed the Bell Center for Tower of Songs, a tribute concert to Leonard Cohen in Montreal with Sting, Lana Del Rey, Elvis Costello and more. Patrick and his band are currently recording the next album.

With the release of their new album, Sparkle Hard, heading our way on May 18th, Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks have shared a documentary short film shot on-location in Portland, OR directed by Brook Linder. Watch above.

It’s an intimate and brilliant glimpse into the quotidian world of Stephen Malkmus – songwriting legend, tennis champ, horseback rider, band-leader, and all-around charming goofball.  “Since watching this doc,” says Stephen, “I’ve improved my tennis game immensely… I’ve shortened my follow through on the forehand and made progress on a buttery topspin backhand.”

 Director Brook Linder has shared his inspiration, explaining “I have long been a Malkmus fan, and for years have thought very hard about what I would make with him given the opportunity. He’s such a unique character and there’s obviously so much history involved - making anything at all seemed pretty formidable.  To me he is mysterious and nothing is obvious. The idea of making a typical visual to match the sound was out straight away.”  Brook, thinking back to when he first saw Malkmus play live, at Pitchfork Fest 2007, recalled “the set was mostly Malkmus and an acoustic guitar, and it was so raw and funny and vulnerable and felt rare and weird.  I wanted to capture that side of Malkmus somehow – to grab the mundane details of his life – and it turns out they’re as enigmatic as he is.”

WATCHING THE KILLS 'LIST OF DEMANDS (REPARATIONS)' (DOMINO ALL-IN)

The Kills 'List Of Demands (Reparations)'

The Kills have covered Saul Williams’ “List of Demands (Reparations)” and Peter Tosh’s “Steppin’ Razor”. Watch the video for 'List Of Demands' above.

The greatest duos teeter on the cliff’s edge between chaos and equilibrium, salvation and obliteration, 10,000-watt voltage and gothic darkness. For a decade and a half, The Kills have mastered that savage balance, unleashing artful detonation and subtle vocal and guitar violence. That’s five albums and four EPs where Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince reimagined the possibilities of modern duality—alchemizing garage rock, punk, and blues into smoke clouds, psychic carnage, and a smoldering nocturnal slink. A northwest passage between Outkast and Suicide. Artwork for the single was created especially for the release by Shepard Fairey.

ALEXIS TAYLOR 'BEAUTIFUL THING' OUT 20TH APRIL 2018 (DOMINO RECORDINGS)

Beautiful Thing is the forthcoming solo album from Alexis Taylor and will be released on April 20th via Domino. Watch the Edwin Burdis directed video for 'Beautiful Thing' above. 

This is a musician, writer and singer who has carved his own unique path through the music of the 21st century, completely avoiding getting trapped along the way in dumb oppositions of pop vs avant-garde, dancefloor vs intellect, retro vs modernist and so on. He has worked with living legends from major pop stars to free improvisors in the furthest left field, played huge arenas and tiny clubs without ever privileging one over the other, and through all of it, never stopped listening and learning. All of this accumulated experience is put to work on Beautiful Thing in pursuit of something subtle and elusive but ultimately quite profound and beautifully human. 

With ‘Beautiful Thing’, Alexis combines experimental, clattering noises with crazed, disco lavishness and bug-eyed acid house momentum to create something giddy and glorious. The video is a suitably compelling counterpart.

The upcoming record is a bold and confident step forward for Alexis both sonically and in terms of his songwriting abilities. It has electronic thrills, dark spaces, memories of dancefloors, heartfelt writing; it's composed, it's improvised, it's accidental, it's strange, but it's also very immediate. It is a beautiful thing itself:  a moving, modern and unique sounding long-player, to get lost in on repeated deep listens.

Franz Ferdinand have announced details of the release of ‘Feel The Love Go’, the latest track to be taken from Always Ascending, their forthcoming album which is being released by Domino on Friday the 9th of February. Watch above.

The track is accompanied by a stunning video by acclaimed director Diane Martel (www.diane-martel.com). The video, shot while the band were in Los Angeles on their recent US tour, has the feel of a public access TV religious show and sees Alex cast as an unhinged evangelical preacher.

Talking about the video Diane said: I’m excited to work with Franz for the third time! They are close friends and steller artists. I think this is their best album to date. Each song could be a single, it’s expansive musically, wonderfully produced and the lyrics are brilliant as usual. This new incarnation of the band is perfection! 

Always Ascending is the band’s fifth album and was recorded at RAK Studios, London and Motorbass in Paris, with the help of French producer extraordinaire Philippe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Beastie Boys). Nothing short of a rebirth, the album’s 10 songs are a triumphant recasting of the group, bursting with fresh ideas and vigorous sonic experimentation.

The band return to the UK in February for a tour which includes a show at London’s 02 Brixton Academy on Saturday the 24th of February. The band will be joined on the UK leg of the tour by Albert Hammond Jr.
