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.

PATRICK WATSON 'BROKEN' OUT NOVEMBER 2017 (DOMINO RECORDINGS)

Patrick Watson shares ‘Broken’, a brand new single and video released on the 16th November 2017. Watch above.

Of the video, recently shot in Montreal, director Pedro Pires says: “It was a real pleasure to work with Patrick to create this video. We started with simple intuitive ideas such as characters fleeing or running away in fast moving vehicles. I then proposed to use reflections and flares to fragment the light to reveal a more impressionist moody state of mind of these various “broken” characters”, explains the director.

Patrick has been busy on various projects since the 2015 critically acclaimed release of his fifth album, Love Songs for Robots. He played the Montreal Symphonique outdoor concert on the Mount-Royal to celebrate the city’s 375th anniversary, embarked on the Canadian C3 boat for a 2 week run to raise awareness on Diversity and Inclusion, Reconciliation, Youth Engagement and the Environment, and finally, performed last week at 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 set to be out sometime in 2018.

Watson composes, performs and records his albums with his full band of almost a decade, which includes Joe Grass (guitars), Robbie Kuster (drums/percussion) and Mishka Stein (bass). The recipient of Canada’s elite Polaris Music Prize in 2007, Watson and his band have performed to over 100,000 people at the 2009 Montreal Jazz Festival as well as with full orchestras in Amsterdam and Montreal. Raised and still living in Montreal, Watson himself has composed fifteen scores for both film and television; including a trailer for ‘The Walking Dead’ and Wim Wenders’ 3D film ‘Everything Will Be Fine’.
