CASS MCCOMBS 'A FOLK SET APART' COMPILATION OUT 11TH DECEMBER 2015

DOMINO RECORDINGS
'A Folk Set Apart'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

A Folk Set Apart: Rarities, B-Sides & Space Junk, Etc., is an alternate retelling of the last decade in the life of extraordinary songwriter Cass McCombs.

Comprising songs from 2003-2014, the album showcases McCombs’ thematic and emotional diversity. A black mirror to his catalogue, there are varying moments of reflection, madness, and dark humor. Also of politics - “Bradley Manning,” which debuted on Democracy Now, is a modern folk ballad of the convicted Army whistleblower, and directly quotes Manning’s own Facebook posts. McCombs has a unique ability to stitch together ancient techniques with our current primitive mind. Listen to 'Evangeline' taken from the album below.

BEAT HAPPENING 'LOOK AROUND' OUT 20TH NOVEMBER 2015

DOMINO RECORDINGS
'Look Around'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Exploding the teenage underground into passionate revolt against the corporate ogre since 1983, Beat Happening formed at Evergreen College in Olympia, Washington by Calvin Johnson, Heather Lewis and Bret Lunsford. The band combined a modern primitive pop sound with the D.I.Y. ethos of ‘anyone can do it’ and inspired countless bands and labels along the way. The music community that arose around the band and their label, K, may have seemed the sonic antithesis of their Seattle neighbors (and friends) but was no less influential.

30 years since the release of their self-titled debut album (the subject of a 33 1/3 book out this week), 'Look Around' is a remastered, career-spanning double album anthology, handpicked by the band and a great starting point for the uninitiated as well a refreshing reminder to those who caught the wave the first time around. The 23 tracks range from their 1984 debut single, “Our Secret” b/w “What’s Important”.

The oft-covered “Indian Summer” from 1998’s Jamboree LP — which Ben Gibbard once called “the indie ‘Freebird’” and was named one of Pitchfork’s “Best Songs of the 1980s” (“it means something slightly different every time it’s heard”) — is now streaming BELOW

Panda Bear’s latest five track collection, Crosswords EP, sees wind in his sails as we follow him on his next wide-eyed quantum leap from this year’s acclaimed album Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper.

After two self-released EPs of exquisite, introspective songwriting – Increases and Increases II – and a youth orchestra-assisted performance at Tate Modern, Slime, aka Will Archer, signed to Weird World, the experimental imprint of Domino records. Curated from almost 400 demos, the 10 tracks that make up debut album Company are a late-night confessional, blurring dark electronica and fragmented instrumentation into swirling, psychedelic pop.

Daniel Brereton's video for Slime’s latest single, “Hot Dog,” tells a tale of British suburban stasis, and follows surreal creations for Kindness, Metronomy and Connan Mockasin. In contrast to Archer's visual aesthetic, the vocal collaborations on Company are much more human, with Belgian soul star Selah Sue and Chicago’s underground rapper Jeremiah Jae sparring with Archer’s shadowy stories.

'Slanted & Enchanted: The Secret History Vol.1'
GET: MP3 | WAV | LICENSE

Between 1992 and 1999, Pavement released five albums, each adored and cherished for different reasons. However, in the process of recording each record, there were many tracks that fell by the wayside, as will happen when making music. These songs would be released as B-Sides or EPs, much later on deluxe reissues, or never be heard at all. Now, Domino Records is collecting these rarities for a series of “shadow records” beginning with the August 11th release of The Secret History, Vol. 1.

Featuring material recorded around the time of Pavement’s 1992 debut, Slanted and Enchanted, Vol. 1 packs 30 tracks over two vinyl LPs. Included are rarities from the Japanese version of Slanted (“So Stark (You’re A Skyscraper)”, “Sue Me Jack), alternate takes (“Here”, “Summer Babe”), and unused John Peel sessions (“Kentucky Cocktail”, “Ed Ames”). There’s also a 13-song live performance from London featuring Mark Ibold and Bob Nastanovich recorded in 1992.

SLIME 'COMPANY' OUT 14TH AUGUST 2015

Company is the debut album by Slime, producer and multi-instrumentalist Will Archer. At a time when electronic music feels dominated by brash bombast and hyper-real concept, its ten elusive, unsettling and emotional tracks offer a master-class in nuance and sincerity. 

Born in Newcastle just before league football in England changed for good, music was almost entirely absent from family life. Nevertheless, Archer found himself drawn to the mechanical noise the coffee factory his father ran, its rhythms permeating his young imagination and eventually leading to him taking up the drums before hitting his teens.

Recorded over two years in-between a number of behind-the-scenes collaborations, orchestral performances and the artist’s on-going education, Company was brought to live in a window-less rabbit warren of a studio in Hackney where Archer spent every available waking hour amassing a staggering body of work, coming to total almost 400 tracks by the time he took them to Dillip Harris (Mount Kimbie, Micachu) for mixing in early 2014.

A debut album will arrive later in the year and is prefaced by My Company / In One Year, two elliptic, alien, soulful tracks mixed by Dilip Harris (MountKimbie, Micachu) which immediately mark Archer out as a unique new musical voice. Listen below.

“We share a lot of the same references and attitudes - there’s a definite aesthetic affinity,” say Shynola of Hot Chip. “The idea for the video wholly came from our reaction to the song. What was intended to be a piece of thrifty filmmaking ended up being a mind-melting shoot - if you can imagine shooting multiple versions of reality, but completely out of chronology, plus in the pissing rain and wind.”

FFS – the unique collaboration between Franz Ferdinand and Sparks - Produced by Grammy-award winner John Congleton (St Vincent, David Byrne, Anna Calvi) and recorded at London’s RAK Studios. FFS was recorded during an intense 15-day period in late 2014. “We approached it the way bands do with their first record,” says Kapranos. “We had the songs first, rehearsed them and then recorded it all together, in a room. So no hanging around or fannying about.”

The seed of FFS was sown around the time of Franz’s debut album when word got back to the Maels that the band were big Sparks fans. “We thought ‘Take Me Out’ was very cool, and wouldn’t it be nice to say hello when they came to Los Angeles?” recalls Russell Mael. “We met and decided then it would be great to do something together. We put forward a couple demos, one was ‘Piss Off’. But they got swept up by everything, and it didn’t happen at that time.”

Fast-forward to 2013 when both Sparks and Franz Ferdinand appeared at Coachella. On the day of Sparks’ warm-up show in San Francisco, Kapranos was in the city trying to locate a dentist when he heard a voice behind him: “’Alex, is that you?’ It was Ron and Russell. They invited us down to see them play that night. We said hello after, and everyone agreed that the 10-year gestation period for this idea was long enough------- we should try and make it happen now.”
