MARTIN COURTNEY ANNOUNCES MANY MOONS, DEBUT SOLO ALBUM FROM REAL ESTATE FRONTMAN OUT OCTOBER 30TH, WATCH VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE 'NORTHERN HIGHWAY'

Martin Courtney | 02/09/15

Domino is pleased to announce the debut solo album from Real Estate songwriter and frontman Martin Courtney, titled Many Moons, out October 30th 2015

Accompanying the album’s announcement is the video for first single ‘Northern Highway’, directed by Rob Hatch-Miller and Puloma Basu. The video, shot recently in the bucolic summer landscape of upstate New York, is available to view below.

Many Moons is a bright, lush, 10-song collection of soft psychedelia that recalls the Kinks and Big Star even as it probes the depths of his own life as a family man, father, and touring musician. The album is squinting-at-the-sun bright, full of subtle introspection, an elliptical document of Courtney’s transition into family life and fatherhood, largely written while he was on the road touring Atlas, Real Estate’s third full length release.

His players on this album, including Jarvis Taveniere of Woods, who produced the album, and Julian Lynch and Matt Kallman, help bring a newfound sonic clarity, a brightness evidenced in new single ‘Northern Highway’. Songs are rounded out with orchestral arrangements, as in the previously-shared ‘Vestiges’, or the instrumental title track, a sweetly luxurious string and flute number that wouldn’t be out of place on a prime-era Pentangle record.

Listen to ‘VestigesHERE.

Courtney has long made a career of writing songs about what happens when your image of home is something you’re trying to hold on to, when the nostalgia that used to comfort you starts to feel unfamiliar.  On Many Moons, he’s moved through that. It’s not so much a rejection of nostalgia, but an embrace of what’s ahead - an album-length meditation on his life right now, which is the type of exploration Courtney has become exceptional at. 

Many Moons will be released on CD, standard and limited edition LP on October 30th 2015 on Domino. The limited edition LP (of 500) is available to pre-order now from Domino and contains an alternate cover with an embossed jacket, featuring an artist logo designed by Robert Beatty and coke-bottle clear colored vinyl.  All pre-orders from Domino or iTunes include instant downloads of ‘Northern Highway’ and ‘Vestiges’.

ALEX G SHARES VIDEO FOR BUG, BEACH MUSIC OUT OCTOBER 9TH

Alex G | 27/08/15

Image: alexgpress

Bug’, the lead track from Alex G’s forthcoming album Beach Music, is now accompanied by a video. Shot in Ojai, California, and directed by Micah Van Hove, the video can be viewed below now.

Says Van Hove of the video:  

“The music of Alex G carries such vivid stories, fleeting moments and cunning characterization that one can't help but think visually while listening. The idea here was to explore the cyclical nature of a relationship, the addictive quality of love and the joy and confusion it brings. To experience one full turn of the clock, toying with commitment and the flighty nature of the self. We shot over 2 days in my hometown of Ojai, CA on 4th of July weekend with an extremely hardworking and talented cast and crew.”

Alex G’s forthcoming new album Beach Music will be out via Domino on October 9, 2015. The album, his seventh full-length, follows on from previous beloved albums DSU (Orchid Tapes), Trick, and Rules, which have led to a fervent cult fan base, a number of Artist To Watch designations from outlets such as Fader and Rolling Stone, and a dedicated live audience who sing along with every word.

Beach Music was written and recorded in Giannascoli’s apartment, between the Fall of 2014 and the Spring of 2015, during breaks from touring with the likes of Elvis Depressedly, Cymbals Eat Guitars, and Gardens & Villa. While its predecessors often came in uninterrupted bursts—from his head to his Bandcamp page in a matter of hours and days—Beach Music was shaped in part by Giannascoli adapting to life as a touring musician. Songs were written within months of one another rather than all at once, with influences ranging from noise music to piano-based laments to Southern rock to the rhythmic focus of techno—whatever he happened to be most interested in at the time. “Every song is coming from a different place,” he says. “It branches off in all these directions, but it has its own sound. It’s not something I do intentionally, but I’m the common thread.”

Beach Music is available to pre-order now via the Dom Mart on LP, CD, and digital download. Limited edition deluxe vinyl and cassette offerings have already sold out.

Pre-order: Dom Mart / Bandcamp / iTunes

Image: Bob Moses Talk Press Pic

Bob Moses recently announced their debut album Days Gone By, due for release via Domino  on Sept 18, 2015. The band has already revealed two singles from the LP, and now reveal a remix of first single ‘Talk’, courtesy of Matrixxman.

‘Talk’, along with new single ‘Too Much Is Never Enough’, exemplifies the band’s ability to skillfully combine guitar-lead songwriting and stirring electronic production to mesmerizing effect. Matrixxman hones in on the duo’s darker undertones and takes the track into deeper and ominous territory, a constant digital array of bleeps and blips as if being emitted from a combination of analytical machines.

The band returns to the UK for a headlining show at London’s Village Underground on the 26th of November, following their extensive US tour throughout the autumn. See full tour dates below.

Days Gone By will be out September 18, 2015 on Domino. Preorder the album via iTunes HERE and via Dom Mart HERE.

JULIA HOLTER STREAMS NEW SONG ‘SEA CALLS ME HOME’

Julia Holter | 26/08/15

Image: Julia Holter image - photo credite Tonje Thilesen

With the highly anticipated release of her fourth full-length Have You In My Wilderness on 25th September, Julia Holter has today released the second song to be heard from the new album in ‘Sea Calls Me Home’ 

 

Of the track, Holter says: “'Sea Calls Me Home' is about moving away from things that trap you, the scary wonder in discovering freedom.”


Have You in My Wilderness was written from the heart – warm, dark and raw – and explores love, trust, and power in human relationships. While love songs are familiar in pop music, Holter manages to stay fascinatingly oblique and enigmatic, with some of the most sublime and transcendent music she has ever written. Like Holter’s previous albums, Have You in My Wilderness is multi-layered and texturally rich, featuring an array of electronic and acoustic instruments played by an ensemble of gifted Los Angeles musicians.

 

Have You in My Wilderness is also Holter’s most sonically intimate album, with her vocals front and centre in the mix, lifted out of the layers of smeared, hazy effects. The result is striking: clear and vivid, but disarmingly personal. 

Have You In My Wilderness will be available on CD (WIGCD341), Digital (WIG341D) and LP (WIGLP341). For a very limited period the vinyl LP will come with a photographic print signed by the artist, via Dom Mart only. The album is available to pre-order with an instant grat of both ‘Feel You’ and ‘Sea Calls Me Home’. Pre-order from Dom Mart HERE and iTunes HERE.

The album tracklisting is as follows:

  1. Feel You
  2. Silhouette
  3. How Long?
  4. Lucette Stranded On The Island
  5. Sea Calls Me Home
  6. Night Song
  7. Everytime Boots
  8. Betsy On The Roof
  9. Vasquez
  10. Have You In My Wilderness

Julia Holter will be touring in support of Have You In My Wilderness through October, November and December with a London show at Islington Assembly Hall on 12th November. Live dates are as follows with UK and European shows in bold:
