BONNIE ‘PRINCE’ BILLY SHARES NEW VIDEO FOR ‘WHEN THY SONG FLOWS THROUGH ME’, NEW ALBUM POND SCUM RELEASED TODAY

22/01/16

Image: Bonnie 'Prince' Billy Pond Scum photo

Pond Scum is an integral piece in the evolution of Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's progressive and prolific catalogue. A collection of sessions recorded for John Peel’s influential BBC show, it spans eight years of Bonnie's career and is essential for longtime fans and first-time listeners alike. Released today, Pond Scum captures Will Oldham’s powerful and compelling songwriting, accompanied only by a single guitar and a few subtle, yet captivating harmonies. 

Recorded in 2001, ‘When Thy Song Flows Through Me’ is one of the finest paradigms of Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's illustrious career. Inspired by the devotional chant by Paramahansa Yogananda, the Pond Scum version is every bit as spiritual and moving as the original. To accompany such a poignant adaptation, Bonnie enlisted the help of Louisville based director Ryan Daly to construct moving images that soothe the mind and body. Partly inspirited by the works of Nathaniel Dorsky and Jerome Hiler, the video for ‘When Thy Song Flows Through Me’ is dazzling in its simplicity.

Watch ‘When Thy Song Flows Through Me’ here.

Additionally, Oldham shared another Pond Scum cut via NPR last week, a cover of Prince’s ‘The Cross’. Listen to it here.

Pond Scum is available on CD (WIGCD374), vinyl (WIGLP374) and digitally (WIG374D).  You can purchase Pond Scum via Dom Mart or iTunes.

THE RANGE ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM POTENTIAL RELEASED 25TH MARCH, LISTEN TO "FLORIDA" AND WATCH ALBUM TRAILER

The Range | 20/01/16

Image: The Range photo by Alexandra Gavillet

We're happy to announce the Domino debut Potential from Brooklyn, NY-based musician James Hinton, aka The Range, out March 25, 2016.

The magic of Potential, following 2013’s Nonfiction - is as a document of its time. The Range has made an electronic record inspired by Baltimore club, early ‘00s grime and mid ‘00s electronica, but also as a member of the last generation that will remember going online for the first time. Listen to lead single “Florida” below.

As its backbone, Potential utilizes a series of vocal samples that Hinton found in the deep corners of YouTube, introducing us to unknown artists expressing themselves unfettered by the constraints of industry. He might be fascinated by the code that determines his YouTube searches, but what truly grips him are the human stories behind the samples. Hinton explains, “I found each person by using a small set of search terms on YouTube. Each song is inextricably linked to the point in time that I came across each video. I endeavored to tie the songs of Potential together by telling my own story alongside the stories of the people I sampled. Every song tries to acknowledge a sense of vulnerability or difficulty in life, as well as an intense drive to cope with problems in ways that don't drag you into the abyss.” 

In addition to the forthcoming album Potential, a documentary titled Superimpose, directed by Daniel Kaufman, out this spring, will look at the human stories behind the unknown artists included on the album. As Hinton states, “I am very conscious that these people who I have sampled elevate what I do, just as much as my record brings their work somewhere else.” Watch the documentary trailer below.

 

 

Potential will be available in CD, LP, deluxe double LP edition, and digital formats. The deluxe double LP edition, pictured above, is available to pre-order exclusively from the Domino Mart and includes a bonus 4 track Strings 12” EP and instant download of “Florida.” It will be limited to 1000 copies worldwide. 

The Range will be playing a handful of pre-release shows in March. Dates below, with more extensive touring to be announced soon.

The Range live dates:
03-01 Los Angeles, CA - Resident
03-09 London, UK - Pickle Factory

NIGHT MOVES ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM PENNIED DAYS, SHARE VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE 'DENISE, DON'T WANNA SEE YOU CRY'

Night Moves | 19/01/16

Image: Night Moves - photo credit Bryan Derballa

Minneapolis band Night Moves are pleased to announce their new album, Pennied Days, due for release on March 25, 2016 on Domino. The first single from the forthcoming album, ‘Denise, Don’t Wanna See You Cry’, is released today alongside a music video, directed by Anthony Sylvester (director of Shamir’s ‘In For The Kill’ and ‘On The Regular’ videos) and shot in upstate New York late last year. Watch the video below now.

Formed in 2009 in the Twin Cities, Night Moves is composed at its core of John Pelant and Micky Alfano. Friends since high school, their bond was solidified when Alfano lent Pelant his copy of George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass, a luminous classic of turn-the-page melancholy that echoes through Pennied Days. Over time, Pelant and Alfano broadened their scope to allow for a wide array of maverick influences, ranging from traditionalist heroes like Leon Russell and The Band to r’n’b originators Curtis Mayfield and Sly Stone to pre-punk experimentalists Suicide. (They also love Joe Walsh, like all free-thinking Americans.)

For Pennied Days, Pelant channeled both his disillusionment and his quiet resolve into a set of beautiful, melodic songs whose sunny surface obscures an inner darkness. Pennied Days might ultimately be as breezy and pleasurable as the records Pelant grew up loving, but that description belies the years of work the band put into making the album. 

“A lot of the songs are about trying to find yourself and what your future will look like and who you are – life overall,” Pelant says now — a seemingly simple statement about the most complicated of personal journeys. After releasing their 2012 debut, Colored Emotions — and touring with the likes of Father John Misty, Lord Huron, Django Django, and Poliça — Pelant set about recording demos for the follow-up. Originally, he planned on making another record quickly — Pelant is compulsively creative, writing loads of hooky pop songs in short bursts. (The band has few hobbies outside of music, beyond “drinking, wasting time talking about life, girls, and partying.”). But sessions for Pennied Days stretched far longer than anticipated, with the music veering from Flaming Lips-influenced doomsday dirges to the folky, laidback material the band were known for, and so eventually producer John Agnello was introduced to help steer things back on course, resulting in a 9 song collection of future folk-rock, paisley-tinged guitar licks, and even a piano jam or two.

Pre-order Pennied Days via iTunes HERE, or via the Domino Mart HERE. The deluxe LP - limited to 500 copies worldwide and available via the Dom Mart - comes in a single jacket with a printed inner sleeve, and includes a limited edition 10 inch with three bonus tracks.

YOUR FRIEND SHARES NEW SINGLE COME BACK FROM IT, DEBUT ALBUM GUMPTION OUT JANUARY 29TH

Your Friend | 14/01/16

Image: Your Friend - photo credit Crystal Lee Ferris

Taryn Miller, aka Your Friend, will release her debut album, Gumption, on January 29th via Domino. The second single from Gumption, “Come Back From It,” debuts today on Noisey with an accompanying video directed by Christophe Acker / Thatfilm and shot at the end of last year in Paris.

Says Miller, “We shot the footage on my last day in Paris, when I was there last November for Red Bull Music Academy, which was postponed following the awful events in November. It was freezing, and wild. He (the motorcycle driver) was weaving between highway traffic and at times, splitting the space between semis. It all came together at the very end of my trip, and was a really lovely way to leave after seeing what so many endured. There was this juxtaposition of the time that I arrived, and the night before I left. The streets were empty on my first day there, and it was exhilarating to be riding back into the city like that, and to have witnessed such resilience during such a dark time.” 

“Come Back From It,” was composed of salvaged pieces of an almost entirely scrapped song during Gumption’s demoing process. The whirling, dark, drum loop (arguably the backbone) and the crackling drone were the only original pieces of audio from the demo. Producer Nicolas Vernhes encouraged that there was something about the lurching nature of those elements that was worth pursuing. Miller already had a sense of verses, but there wasn’t a “relief,” as Vernhes said, when referring to a chorus. Vernhes sat her in the control room of Rare Book Room in Brooklyn and played Lou Reed’s “Pale Blue Eyes,” with the both of them in silence, then said, “You have thirty minutes, go write a chorus.” After the structure was formed, Miller took on the task of creating several, separate loops for each chord in the entire song, and Vernhes collaging them and achieving an overall cinematic type of texture.

“Come Back From It” follows the album opener and first single, “Heathering,” a brooding track Miller had been working on long before entering the studio. The opening acoustic guitar sample was something that Vernhes had caught before she knew they were tracking. It was left as somewhat of a playful placeholder initially, but then ultimately became an endearing and important part of the opening. 

Gumption deals with the dualities and nuances of human interaction, and questions how much we, as individuals, are responsible for in the ways we are perceived. It’s a record of courage, as its title suggests - of having the willingness to make necessary shifts, and to have a sense of self-awareness that ultimately leads to growth.

---

Gumption will be available on CD and standard LP via the Domino Mart. Pre-order the album from the Domino Mart HERE or iTunes HERE and receive an instant download of “Heathering.” The standard LP comes in a single jacket with a printed inner sleeve and is accompanied by a MP3 download card.

Preorder: Dom Mart / iTunes

PORCHES SHARE VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE 'BE APART', NEW ALBUM POOL RELEASED 5TH FEBRUARY

Porches | 06/01/16

Image: Porches - photo credit Jessica Lehrman

Porches’ new album Pool is out via Domino on February 5th, and ahead of its release, the band is pleased to share a video for its latest single, ‘Be Apart’. Premiered via Fader earlier today, ‘Be Apart’ can be viewed below now.

The video was directed by Daniel Brereton (Connan Mockasin, Django Django, Kindness, Metronomy) and was filmed outside London during a recent UK/EU tour. 

Says Maine on ‘Be Apart’:

“’Be Apart’ is sort of about moving to New York City and wanting to belong. It's about nightlife, about being taken away, losing control, longing for acceptance, and letting go. I imagine the music video portraying some sort of cult or family living in a mansion. The cult/mansion represent both what you might long to be a part of and also the sentiment of longing to be elsewhere, a part of what is outside.”

This video comes off the back of the previously released ‘Hour’ (watch HERE), which features Maine's partner and frequent collaborator, Greta Kline a.k.a Frankie Cosmos.

Next month marks the much-anticipated release of Pool, Porches’ debut full-length for Domino and a major step forward for Maine —as an evolving singer/songwriter, and as a nascent producer. Written and recorded almost entirely in his Manhattan apartment, and mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Tobias Jesso Jr) in Los Angeles, Pool was influenced, in part, by settling in the city as an artist and a person. Says Maine, “there was something special about recording this album in my new home. To be surrounded by the city and in my own world at the same time. I quickly became obsessed with the energy around me, and my experience of New York - I was forced to see my music in an entirely different context.  This was challenging, but also exciting, when the songs started to sound like a true reflection of what I was feeling in my new surroundings."

Pool is available to pre-order now on limited pressing clear vinyl, CD, and digital download. 

Pre-order: Dom Mart / Bandcamp / iTunes

Porches will be taking off on an extensive 2016 North American tour, starting March 9 in Washington, DC. The tour is a co-headline with label-mate Alex G, and will feature Your Friend, another fellow Domino artist, on support for all dates. Tickets to all shows are on sale now.

BONNIE 'PRINCE' BILLY TO RELEASE POND SCUM, A NEW COLLECTION OF JOHN PEEL SESSIONS, 22ND JANUARY

Bonnie Prince Billy | 06/01/16

Image: Pond Scum

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.

A span of eight years is covered, in reverse, and many chestnuts are rolled out, freed of former contexts with sparse arrangements. "(I Was Drunk at the) Pulpit" feels, ten years from inception, more vividly worn; "Death to Everyone" is loosed from its frame, the bones decoupled and spread out, giving the song a reflective air (as opposed the biting declamation of the original); "Arise, Therefore" adapts its metronomic base, the evangelic twist of its roots made palpable. With the centre of the performance in stark relief, the gnomic qualities of two "Get On Jolly" pieces are intensified. Further accenting the devoted spirit of this collection is the inclusion of Bonnie's take on Prince's "The Cross", as well as the previously-unreleased original "Beezle."

Bonnie's lone shadow casts over this lot, accompanied on the first four tracks by David Heumann, but otherwise playing solo through a set of original songs (and two covers) representing a decade of progress in the almost unbearably intimate-yet-unknowable manner that was so often the vibe of those strange and wondrous days.

Layers peel to reveal the subtle artistry and refinement contained within these sessions, so begin to dig deep into the vault on January 22nd, 2016! But wait, there's more! You can download a new arrangement of "Rich Wife Full of Happiness", (which is similar in tone, but not found on Pond Scum!)! 

Listen to and download “Rich Wife Full Of Happiness” HERE

Pond Scum is available on CD (WIGCD374), vinyl (WIGLP374) and digitally (WIG374D).  You can purchase Pond Scum via Dom Mart or iTunes.
