TY SEGALL 'EMOTIONAL MUGGER' OUT 22ND JANUARY 2016 (VIA DRAG CITY)

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Emotional Mugger'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

Ty Segall releases his new album, Emotional Mugger, through Drag City.

The 11-track effort follows 2014’s excellent Manipulator and serves as the prolific garage rockers’s eighth studio record under his own name. (Just two months ago, he put out II, the latest record from his FUZZ project.)

This month marks Emotional Mugger’s official release on vinyl/cassette/CD/mp3 formats. Previously it was only available on — wait for it — VHS tapes, which were mailed out by Segall’s label back in November. Those mysterious tapes included screenings of either 1993 film My Life or 1982’s Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

Watch the trailer above and stream the album below via this NPR music player.

THE BIG EYES FAMILY PLAYERS 'OH!' OUT 26TH FEBRUARY 2016

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Oh!'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

The Big Eyes Family Players are a loose collective based around Sheffield artist James Green. It’s been three years since the last Big Eyes album (‘Folk Songs II’ on Static Caravan) and a whole six years since they released an album of original material (not including 2011’s superb reworked best-of, ’Family Favourites’). The group, who have previously collaborated with the likes of James Yorkston, Alasdair Roberts and Rachel Grimes, are now a slimmed-down 5-piece with a sound that veers closer towards the 60’s psychedelic pop of the likes of United States of America and Broadcast than it does to the instrumentals or folk songs Big Eyes are perhaps best known for.

The album consists mainly of self-penned, vocal-led songs, written by James Green and Heather Ditch with themes ranging from family dysfunction, to hauntings, to fictional historical events. The centrepiece of the album is the dramatic ’Joyce’ which concerns the true story of Joyce Vincent, who was found dead in her flat in London three years after she died, her TV set still on, unopened Christmas presents at her feet, whilst another highlight, the wonderful ’Song For Thirza’ is the only cover on the album - a little-known song by Lal Waterson and a true-story about a girl who lived with the Waterson family, rescued from the workhouse back in the 1950’s.

THE MAGNETIC NORTH 'PROSPECT OF SKELMERSDALE' OUT 18TH MARCH 2016

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Prospect Of Skelmersdale'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

The Magnetic North – the occasional musical partnership of Erland Cooper, Simon Tong & Hannah Peel – release their second album on Full Time Hobby.

Skelmersdale in West Lancashire was designated a new town in 1961. Part of the UK’s second wave of post-war population redistribution, it was failing within twenty years. In the early ’80s, the town became the official UK home of the Transcendental Meditation movement. Geographically placed somewhere near the centre of the country, the town was deemed the perfect site for the movement to build their ‘ideal maharishi village complete with gold meditation dome’ (the Guardian). The local community was soon augmented by families from across the country looking to live peaceful, peace-promoting lives with an overriding ambition to spread goodwill to the town and beyond.

Inspired by the town and the lives of its inhabitants, the Magnetic North’s Prospect of Skelmersdale sits somewhere between finely tuned kitchen sink drama and urban psychogeography. Inspired as much by the greys and greens of Kes as the soothing, cyclical patterns of meditative ragas, Prospect of Skelmersdale is a collection of musical snapshots of a uniquely British town. Drawing on childhood memories, the urban landscape and the lives of its inhabitants, the album perfectly uncovers the beauty, magic and mythology that can be found in the most unexpected places.

Gathering together archived news stories, dim-lit memories, directions from road signs, local graffiti and tales from the town’s dual modern histories, the Magnetic North beautifully detail a dozen tales of hope and hopelessness.

Watch the video for the single 'Signs' above.

MEATRAFFLE 'HI-FI CLASSICS' OUT 13TH NOVEMBER 2015 (TRASHMOUTH RECORDS)

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Hi-Fi Classics'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

The lead track from Meatraffle's debut album ‘Hi-fi Classics’ is as anarchic as the band producing it. Refusing to be categorised, the band bring a plethora of influences to the musical feast, and a sizeable dollop of them find their way into ‘Oppenheimer’. The track begins with a suitably moody bass line, a portent of things to come, as the brass section ramp up the doom. 

The music often moves into free-fall jazz, with the brass section of the band contributing to the feel of ordered chaos in some of the interludes, but other musical forms also find their way onto the album. ‘Aurora’ has an underlying Jamaican feel, with the dub sound effect making its mark, and ‘The Horseshoe’ has a cool 60’s vibe with an especially funky little intro. The warped love song to both Rosaria, Za Za Sapien’s wife, and hi fi itself, ‘Madam Hi Fi’ is perfect in its messy dub craziness.

‘Hi Fi Classics’ as a whole is an interesting mix and a true representation of the fresh sounds available to those willing to stray from the indie fold. The album shows what can be achieved by striding out and producing music that takes from so many influences and genres, melding them together to form a very special body of work.

APPLEWOOD ROAD (FEAT. EMILY BARKER) 'APPLEWOOD ROAD' OUT 12TH FEBRUARY 2016

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Applewood Road' (Songs written by Emily Barker)

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

In September 2014, three songwriters met for the first time in a cafe in East Nashville. By the next morning they had put the finishing touches to their first song, ‘Applewood Road’, which they recorded live to tape at Nashville’s all analogue studio, Welcome to 1979.
The song’s nostalgic air, along with the clear, sparse arrangement of three vocals accompanied by double bass, drew immediate positive response, and they decided to expand the idea into a full album.

Six months later, they reconvened to write, rehearse and record songs for the self-titled album Applewood Road. The songs were again performed live around a single microphone at Welcome to 1979 and recorded to two-track tape with minimal accompaniment from some of Nashville’s finest session players, including Aaron Lee Tasjan, Josh Day, Fats Kaplin, Jabe Beyer, and Telisha Williams.
The tapes were assembled at London’s most exclusive high-end mastering suite, Gearbox Records, mastered through their vintage analogue outboard, and lacquers cut in-house on their own Heaco lathe.

Applewood Road is Emily Barker, Amber Rubarth and Amy Speace.

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Parallel Memories LP'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

We're really pleased to welcome Mr. Mitch (please note the "." after Mr) to our roster.

As a co-founder of fast rising record label Gobstopper Records and club-night, now also record label Boxed, he's a curator and auteur at the forefront of forward thinking instrumental grime, ambient and experimental electronic music.

He's currently signed to Planet Mu as a solo artist working on the follow up to his wonderful debut LP 'Parallel Memories'. As a producer/co-writer he has worked with grime stalwarts Skepta, P-Money and more recently with r&b/electronic star Katy B. He is fast becoming a go-to producer/writer outside of the instrumental grime sphere.

Mr. Mitch is a gentle giant, steadily, but forcefully pushing the boundaries of electronic music and pop culture in a way only he does.

BLEEDING HEART PIGEONS 'IS' OUT 12TH FEBRUARY 2016

DOMINO PUBLISHING

'Is' & Instrumentals

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

Bleeding Heart Pigeons release their full length debut album ‘Is’ through Virgin EMI.

The three piece from West Limerick self-produced Is, a collection of well-crafted pop songs that are filtered and layered with heavy synths, feedback and delay. Mixed by David Wrench (Jamie XX, FKA Twigs and Everything Everything), the album features the band’s latest single ‘Anything You Want.’
Choppy guitars and droning electronics feature on ‘Anything You Want’ that straddles dreamy indie rock and showgaze-influenced fuzz. Bleeding Heart Pigeons hold together a vast palette of sounds, all of which have caught the attention and support of Steve Lamacq on 6 Music.

The video for Anything You Want portrays the hidden desires of an ordinary man. Directed by the band in a rough, DIY style; it mixes surreal aesthetics with documentary-like techniques. It is their own interpretation of a self’s duality, transition from one world to another where rationality often doesn’t exist. You can watch it ABOVE.

The album is a continuation of the Hallucination EP, a surreal journey that reaches its destination on Is. Opening track Frozen catapults you into the psychedelic world of Bleeding Heart Pigeons; dreamy vocals, hazy yet melodic harmonies and a sprinkling of stark synth lines. The bands sonic rawness is beautifully tapped and blends elements of Interpol and Caribou.

'Pillars Of Ash'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

BLACK TUSK have established themselves as one of the hardest working bands in rock since their formation over 10 years ago. After four full-lengths, numerous splits and EPs and thousands of shows under their belts, the punk/metal power trio was faced with an immense and unexpected tragedy in late 2014 when founding bassist/vocalist Jonathan Athon passed away after a motorcycle accident in his hometown. Now, as a testament to his profound and lasting legacy on the heavy music scene, the band are releasing Pillars of Ash, their final recordings with Athon. Recorded with Toxic Holocaust's Joel Grind behind the boards and featuring gorgeous artwork by Jeremy Hush (Skeletonwitch, Rwake), Pillars of Ash is the culmination of three brothers-in-arms' blood, sweat and tears, and their finest accomplishment to date.

BONNIE 'PRINCE' BILLY 'POND SCUM' OUT 22ND JANUARY 2016

DOMINO RECORDINGS

Bonnie "Prince" Billy has released a collection of his Peel Sessions for BBC Radio 1 titled ‘Pond Scum’. It features his cover of Prince's "The Cross" and a previously unreleased original called "Beezle." He's also shared a new arrangement of his song "Rich Wife Full of Happiness".
There are no Peel sessions anymore - that tradition was buried in the pyramids with John Peel himself upon the great man's passing. Of the thousands left in the wake, six are ascribed to Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - and of those six, three have been combined to form the deeply congruous experience of Pond Scum.

'THE AMBIGUITY OF DAVID THOMAS BROUGHTON' DOCUMENTARY PREMIERS AT THE ICA ON 12TH JANUARY 2016

'Outbreeding' / 'The Complete Guide To Insufficiency'

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

'The Ambiguity of David Thomas Broughton'(Greg Butler, UK 2015, 60 min) is a musical documentary following the creative process of one of the UK’s most enigmatic musicians and performers.

As a musical act, David Thomas Broughton is almost unclassifiable. His live shows are a exhilarating mix of musical experimentation and performance art, underlined with a raw unpredictability. His recorded material is dark but beautiful, marrying traditional folk with a surrealist edge. Off-stage, he’s an introvert with a passion for bird watching.

Who is the real David Thomas Broughton? Through a series of interviews with fellow musicians and fans like Sam Amidon, David Shrigley and James Yorkston, anecdotes include increasingly bizarre acts of improvisation and self sabotage and the best way to deal with aggressive hecklers yet devised.

'Control' & Instrumentals

GET: MP3 | WAV | CD

 

Devon-born newcomer Rosie Lowe has announced her debut album ‘Control’ to be released via Wolf Tone / Polydor.

Lowe’s first work is being led by ‘Woman’, a strong-headed, ultra-assured take built from neat sparseness. Self-produced alongside Dave Okumu, the song is a bravely bold take on femininity, and not over-analysing imperfections others can’t see. It’s the sort of track you could look to as a daily reminder on how to be true to yourself. Write the lyrics down, stick them in a handbook, carry them around with you.

The new album also features previously-unveiled singles ‘Right Thing’, ‘Who’s That Girl?’ and ‘Worry About Us’.

Watch the album teaser above and stream the track 'Woman' below.
