Domino are proud to release ‘Different Every Time’, a new compilation album of the works of Robert Wyatt.  Curated by Robert together with Domino and biographer Marcus O’Dair, the double album features disk 1 ‘Ex Machina’, the ideal introduction for the Wyatt novice, compiling tracks from Robert’s entire career to date and acting as a companion to O’Dair’s new biography , also titled ‘Different Every Time’ (released by Serpent’s Tail on the 30th of October).   Disk 2 brings together the best of Robert’s collaborations and guest appearances,  or, as Robert has it, ‘benign dictatorships’, including some very special oddities and rarities available here for the very first time.

Starting out as a drummer for Soft Machine, sharing bills with Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix, Robert Wyatt blended Bohemian and jazz and brought it to the 60s rock scene.

Admired by his peers and with a career spanning five decades, he has collaborated with Bjork, John Cage, Brian Eno, Scritti Politti, David Gilmour and Hot Chip to name but a few, many of which are featured here.

Different Every Time’ will be available on double CD (WIGCD347), 2 x double LPs (WIGLP347-1 & WIGLP347 – 2) and digitally (WIG347D).   There will also be a special Dom Mart exclusive version of the album (WIGLP347 – 1X), featuring a limited print.

ANNA CALVI ONE BREATH NOMINATED FOR MERCURY MUSIC PRIZE 2014

Anna Calvi | 11/09/14

Image: One Breath

We are very pleased to announce that Anna Calvi has been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize for her critically acclaimed second album, One Breath. Anna’s eponymous debut album also picked up a nomination for the coveted prize in 2011.  

Produced by John Congleton in Blackbox Studios, France and mixed in Dallas, Texas, USA, One Breath was written in a year and recorded over a few intense weeks. One Breath is a more personal record than its predecessor. Reflective and vulnerable, it strikes a balance between optimism and despair, beauty and ugliness. The fiery elements of Anna’s debut remain, but One Breath is more instinctive and urgent, revealing a wider spectrum of textures and emotion.

 

Following standout performances at Isle Of Wight, Glastonbury, Latitude and Green Man, Anna Calvi has been invited to support Morrissey for a string of his UK and European dates, including a show at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday 29th November. Full dates with ticket links are as follows:

 

NOVEMBER

SUN  23 GERMANY, BERLIN COLUMBIAHALLE
MON 24 GERMANY, ESSEN COLOSSEUM
WED 26 BELGIUM, ANTWERP STADSSCHOUWBURG THEATRE
THU 27 BELGIUM, ANTWERP STADSSCHOUWBURG THEATRE
SAT 29 UK, LONDON O2 ARENA

DECEMBER
MON 1 IRELAND, DUBLIN O2 ARENA

Strange Weather, a 5 track covers EP is also available to purchase HERE. Featuring covers of Suicide, David Bowie, Connan Mockasin and fellow Mercury-nominee, FKA twigs, the EP also includes a stunning collaboration with David Byrne on the title track, a cover of Keren Ann’s ‘Strange Weather’.

Listen to Anna Calvi’s deconstructed organic reworking of FKA twigs’ ‘Papi Pacify’, HERE.

 

JAMES YORKSTON SHARES NEW SINGLE FEATHERS ARE FALLING, OUT OCTOBER 27TH

‘Feathers Are Falling’ is lifted from James’ critically acclaimed eighth studio album, The Cellardyke And Wassailing Society, out now through Domino. The single will be released on October 27th


CRAWS finds the Scotsman opening his studio doors to a broad and brilliant selection of players, with the production chair helmed by Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor. Long-term collaborators Jon Thorne and Emma Smith were joined by KT Tunstall, The Pictish Trail, Fimber Bravo, and Rob Smoughton.

Feathers Are Falling is Yorkston at his most hushed and reverential, with the cracked opening line, “I am feeling very mortal now” by way of an introduction. It builds and blossoms with Yorkston’s collection of exquisite musicians aiding and abetting the song’s seamless ebb and flow.

 

Later this month James heads out on a hefty tour of the UK and Ireland. Tickets for all dates are on sale now through www.jamesyorkston.co.uk
