When West Country feedback merchant Dave Pearce's Flying Saucer Attack resurfaced in 2015 with his first new music in more than a decade, it provided the ideal opportunity to introduce his out-of-print back catalogue to a whole new audience. Following the excitement generated by the re-release of Further, Chorus and Distance last year, Domino are reissuing three more of his peerless early works – the self-titled debut, New Lands and Mirror.
Tamsin Wilson and her band, aptly called Wilsen, are gearing up to release their long-awaited debut album ‘I Go Missing In My Sleep’ via Secret City.
They’ve now shared their latest taste of the album ‘Heavy Steps’. On it, Tamsin’s voice drifts across soothing, folk-infused guitar melodies, a light smattering of piano, sweeps of strings and even waves of soothing synths. It sounds like there’s a lot going on, but it’s all handled with light enough touch that it all seems effortlessly elegant. Tamsin told NPR that the track is “a reminder to look ahead, because sometimes it’s all too easy to do the opposite.” This track certainly makes you look forward to that upcoming debut LP.
Wilsen recorded the LP in upstate New York and at The Farm Studio, located just outside of Philadelphia, with producer Ben Baptie.
The Kills – Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince - are pleased to share a brand new video for ‘Whirling Eye’, off 2016’s album Ash & Ice. The video, helmed by award-winning video director Sophie Muller, a longtime collaborator of the band, was shot at several locations in Los Angeles using the Omni, GoPro’s synchronized 6-camera array for VR, and can be viewed above.
Animal Collective have announced The Painters EP. The companion to last year’s Painting With is out at the end of the week, Friday, February 17 (via Domino). It features three new songs recorded around the same time as the 2016 LP; there is also a cover of “Jimmy Mack” (made famous by Martha and the Vandellas).
Above, watch the lyric video (by Jack Kubizne) for the EP’s opening track “Kinda Bonkers.”
New sounds from a new outfit of Laetitia Sadier, the queen of Stereolab. This debut album of the Source Ensemble features some familiar collaborators, as well as guest spots from the likes of Rob Mazurek and Alexis Taylor. The smoothly groovy flavour of all Sadier’s work is still gorgeously present here on 'Find Me Finding You'. Released by Drag City.
The first single, "Undying Love For Humanity", announces its immediacy with protracted rhythms and pronounced vocal expressions. Laetitia proclaims power to the people. Listen below.
Announcing her signing to the 4AD label in truly stunning style, Aldous Harding has unveiled a brand new track 'Horizon' alongside its accompanying video, all of which precedes her run of European live shows later this Spring.
Horizon is the first single taken from a full-length album for the label which is due later in 2017.
South London trio Little Cub will release their debut album Still Life on Domino. Marrying a wry, worldly and subversive form of diarist lyricism with sumptuously evocative electronic production, Still Life announces the arrival of a band at once deeply in tune with the greatest traditions of progressive, homespun British pop music and at odds with the increasingly vacuous pop culture they are born into.
Little Cub is Dominic Gore, Duncan Tootill and Adrian Acolatse. Whilst now residing and writing in Peckham, their story begins in the banker-belt ennui of Dorking, Surrey. It was in this less than illustrious setting that Gore and Tootill first met by chance. The two hit it off over a shared love of James Murphy's seminal DFA Records, early Aphex Twin and New Order and before long began meeting up to share ideas for original songs alongside Ady Acolatse, whom Gore had met on a night out in the blare and glare of Fabric nightclub the previous summer.
Still Life was produced by Little Cub and mixed by the band, Oli Bayston (Boxed In) and Alexis Smith.
Watch the video for the new single, 'Too Much Love' directed by Lily-Rose Thomas above.
Taken from the recently announced forthcoming record, Solide Mirage, Fránçois & The Atlas Mountains has today shared the new video for ‘Tendre Est l’Âme’. Starring Fránçois Marry as a small town postman, the video was directed by Robin Lachenal. On the video, Fránçois says: “Our new song deals with bullied romantics, the soul of eggs, and being the ghost of yourself. The vocal phrase "Eeeyou-eeeyou" resonates like a distant chorus from a blurred memory.”
Yorkston/Thorne/Khan release their new album Neuk Wight Delhi All-Stars out on Domino. It follows the band’s debut album, 2016’s critically acclaimed Everything Sacred, and presents a confluence of currents, among them the north Indian sarangi; jazz-tinged bass, reminiscent in places of Danny Thompson; acoustic guitar that owes a debt to Elizabeth Cotton, Dick Gaughan and Mississippi John Hurt; and three very different vocalists - James Yorkston (East Neuk of Fife), Jon Thorne (Isle of Wight) and Suhail Yusuf Khan (New Delhi).
The first track to be shared from Neuk Wight Delhi All-Stars is ‘False True Piya’ – mingling traditions as diverse as Britain and India via the Appalachian Mountains.
As the release of Dirty Projectors’ new self-titled album on February 24th approaches, they release another single. ‘Cool Your Heart’, co-written by David Longstreth and Solange Knowles, during breaks from sessions for Solange’s album A Seat At The Table, is a duet between Longstreth and psychedelic r&b visionary Dawn Richard. An anthem against co-dependency and about feeling cool by yourself, ‘Cool Your Heart’ finds Richard and Longstreth driving an S-series Tesla down a lonesome stretch of California road, their timelines scrubbing backwards and forwards on a nighttime journey.
"Raining On Hope Street" is Glasgow based band Spinning Coin's second single after they made their first impression on the world at large with 2016’s “Albany” / “Sides”, their debut 7” single on Geographic. A joyous jolt to the senses, it was also a call-to-arms for progressive politics, against the back-footed movement of right-wing bigotries. The quartet’s roots are in proudly independent music making, group endeavour and countercultural activism, and they’re sensitive to the ways this affects the art we strive to make.
The Range has partnered with YouTube on the release of a virtual reality video for his 2016 Potential LP single “Florida.” Directed by Andrea Allen and produced by Anchor Light, it plants the viewer on a rooftop in the midst of a group of kids dancing along to the song with the New York City skyline in the background.
Wild Beasts have just shared their video for the single Alpha Female - watch it above.
Directed by Sasha Rainbow, the film, shot in Bangalore, India, is immersed in the magical world of Atita Verghese and Girl Skate India with the song acting as a perfect soundtrack to their inimitable journeys.
Melbourne indie rocker Alex Lahey released her debut EP B-Grade University last year, and now it’s been announced that Alex signed to Dead Oceans. That makes her labelmates with Mitski, Kevin Morby, Slowdive, and more.
The EP gets a digital re-release, and she’s also got a video for “Wes Anderson” from the EP (which means there are now videos for four of the five songs). It’s a quirky video, starring Alex and her plank friend. It was shot, directed, and edited by Jam Nawaz. Check it out above.
The first official Documents release is In The Same Room by Julia Holter, although Domino count Villagers’ Where Have You Been All My Life? as the honorary inaugural Document in all but name.
In The Same Room – to be released March 31st 2017 – is named after a song from Holter’s 2012 album Ekstasis, and this new career-spanning collection is the fruit of two days recording by Julia and her tremendous band (Corey Fogel – drums/vocals; Dina Maccabee - viola/vocals and Devin Hoff - stand-up bass) at RAK Studios in the days after their main stage performance at Green Man Festival in Wales.
Having already shared a re-working of ‘So Lillies’ (originally on Tragedy), Holter is pleased to share a new version of Loud City Song track ‘Horns Surrounding Me’.
