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’.

Always Ascending’ is the new album from Franz Ferdinand, released by Domino Records on the 9th February 2018.  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. Listen above. 

Recorded at RAK Studios, London and Motorbass in Paris, with the help of French producer extraordinaire Philippe Zdar (Cassius, Phoenix, The Beastie Boys), the mutual affection between band and producer seeping into every dazzling groove. ‘Always Ascending’ shows Franz Ferdinand broadening their palate, as exuberant as it is euphoric, creating a sound that singer, Alex Kapranos, refers to as “simultaneously futuristic and naturalistic.”

From the city which jointly played host to the album’s conception, the band will mark the announcement of ‘Always Ascending’ with a live streamed launch event at Paris’s Point Ephémère, to be broadcast from the Franz Ferdinand Facebook page from 8.30pm BST tonight, Wednesday October 25, during which the band will preview a selection of their new recordings.

The double A side single (also available digitally) is comprised of two different versions of the classic 1993 Depeche Mode original. Depeche Mode was one of Travis’ favourite bands. 

Gonzalez, Holter, M.G.N and Torrisi said: “Aside from being an authentic and talented artist and collaborator, Travis was a great friend beloved by many in Los Angeles and around the world. Known for his infectious laugh, sense of mischief, and passion for art, music, and architecture, Travis was simply a pleasure to be around. We hope you will check out a link to some of his work.”

Proceeds from the sale of this record will go to Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services in Los Angeles.

JOE GODDARD 'ELECTRIC LINES' OUT 21ST APRIL 2017 VIA GRECO-ROMAN/DOMINO

DOMINO RECORDINGS

Joe Goddard 'Electric Lines'

Electric Lines is all about connections. The title refers to the colourful cables that link the modules in his Eurorack synthesizer and to the invisible wires that run between all the different kinds of electronic music that he loves. An apt title for a record which brilliantly unites the strands of his prolific career: a member of Hot Chip and the 2 Bears, songwriter, producer, DJ, Grammy award nominated remixer and co-founder of the Greco-Roman label. Designed to share his stories directly with fans prior to Electric Lines release, the site is an extension of Goddard’s playlist of the same name - which he’ll continue to curate throughout 2017. Charting his musical influences, passions and the friendships that inspired the creative process when making the forthcoming album, the interactive site uses Spotify’s API technology to power a radio show style experience with original audio commentary from Goddard. 

London-based Toby Mortimer (George Fitzgerald’s ‘Crystalise, Loyle Carner’s ‘Stars & Shards’, King Creosote’s ‘You Just Want’) created a set of bespoke illustrations for the site, with audio responsive loops animated by design collective People.

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.
