The Last Shadow Puppets | 20/01/16

The Last Shadow Puppets return with their new album ‘Everything You’ve Come To Expect’ on Friday 1st April 2016.  The album finds Alex Turner and Miles Kane reunited with James Ford (production and drums) and Owen Pallett (string arrangements) and joined by Zachary Dawes (Mini Mansions) on bass, recording the follow up to 2008’s ‘The Age Of The Understatement’ at Shangri La Studio in Malibu. 

Featuring current single Bad Habits, ‘Everything You’ve Come To Expect’ is a more open and expansive work than its predecessor, wearing its influences less obviously on its sleeve – by turns the album is soaring, snarling and breathlessly seductive. 

Everything You’ve Come To Expect’ will be available on standard (WIGCD371) and deluxe CD (WIGCD371X - featuring a 40 page booklet containing exclusive photography).  Vinyl versions of the album are available as standard (WIGLP371) and deluxe heavyweight vinyl (WIGLP371X - ltd to one pressing, featuring a 32 page booklet and 7” coloured vinyl featuring ‘Bad Habits’, new exclusive track ‘The Bourne Identity’ and download card) and via digital download (WIG371D).

You can pre-order the album via The Last Shadow Puppets store,  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

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.

BILL RYDER-JONES SHARES VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE WILD ROSES, NEW ALBUM WEST KIRBY COUNTY PRIMARY OUT NOW, FORTHCOMING HEADLINE DATES INCLUDE LONDON'S SCALA MARCH 3RD, TICKETS ON SALE NOW

Bill Ryder-Jones | 14/12/15

Image: Wild Roses video still

Bill Ryder-Jones has today shared a video for ‘Wild Roses’, the latest single taken from his highly acclaimed album, West Kirby County Primary.

The new video, again directed by James Slater, finds Ryder-Jones captaining a 5-a-side football team featuring his live band members against a team of local Evertonian heroes. Watch the video now below.

West Kirby County Primary, the third full-length album from multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer, Bill Ryder-Jones, is the follow-up to A Bad Wind Blows In My Heart and was written and recorded by Ryder-Jones in his childhood bedroom at his mother’s house in West Kirby before being filtered through Liverpool’s legendary Parr Street Studios. A classic band record, West Kirby County Primary features Bill playing a multitude of instruments including the electric guitar with his trademark prowess.

Mixed by James Ford, each of West Kirby County Primary’s ten tracks offers a sneaked glance into his private world; they eavesdrop on a set of encounters that go about “turning stories into beautiful truth” set to glorious molten melody that explodes like fireworks over water. It all adds up to a remarkable record by one of our most cherished musicians – a musical polymath as at ease on stage with the Manchester Camerata (where he performed ‘If…’ as part of the Manchester Literature Festival last Autumn) or on live guitar duties with Arctic Monkeys as he is on production duties with Hooton Tennis Club and The Wytches. 

Bill Ryder-Jones supports the release of West Kirby County Primary and the new single with new live dates throughout 2016. The new dates include a run of UK headline dates in March, including London’s Scala on March 3rd. New European support dates with Mumford and Sons throughout May have also been announced.

VILLAGERS SHARE BEHIND THE SCENES FOOTAGE FOR ‘HOT SCARY SUMMER’ FILMED LIVE AT RAK STUDIOS, LONDON

Villagers | 03/12/15

Image: Villagers Hot Scary Summer still

Where Have You Been All My Life?, released on 8th January 2016, is a collection of songs that distils five years and three albums of Villagers’ songwriting into one flowing narrative.

Recorded in one day at London’s RAK Studio with Richard Woodcraft (Radiohead, The Last Shadow Puppets) and Villagers live engineer Ber Quinn, the album is a re-imagining of older material seamlessly woven with present glories from Villagers’ most recent studio album, Darling Arithmetic.

Watch behind the scenes footage of the recording of the track ‘Hot Scary Summer’ HERE.

Released in April 2015, Conor O’Brien’s third album under the guise of Villagers was a more pared-back, intimate journey compared to the multi-faceted arrangements of Becoming A Jackal (2010) and {Awayland} (2013). This fresh approach was extended on subsequent Villagers tours, where old songs were reinvented to match the new. Then for one day in July 2015, 18 songs were quickly captured and 12 songs chosen for the final album, making it Villagers’ most intense, but satisfying, session to date. These recordings are all first or second takes, and the immediacy of the occasion was part of the magic that day, live and unadorned by overdubs or studio trickery.

The unique nature of these arrangements is due in no small part to the musicians in the room at the time of recording: Cormac Curran on grand piano and analogue synthesizer, Danny Snow on double bass, Mali Llywelyn on harp, mellotron and vocals, and Gwion Llewelyn on drums, flugelhorn and vocals. The result is a lush, harmony-laden and vibrant document of a time and a place.

Included in the album are new versions of ‘The Waves’ and ‘Memoir’ – a track written by O’Brien for Charlotte Gainsbourg’s 2011 album Stage Whisper.    Listen to ‘Memoir’ and ‘The Waves’ below.

‘Where Have You Been All My Life?’ will be available on LP (WIGLP368), CD (WIGCD368), Digital (WIG368D) and Deluxe LP (green coloured vinyl  with two bonus tracks on the download card, ‘Pieces’ & ‘No-one to Blame’). Pre-order the album from Dom Mart HERE and iTunes HERE.

The tracklisting is as follows:

1. Set the Tigers Free

2. Everything I Am is Yours

3. My Lighthouse

4. Courage

5. That Day

6. The Soul Serene

7. Memoir

8. Hot Scary Summer

ANIMAL COLLECTIVE ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM 'PAINTING WITH'; LISTEN TO "FLORIDADA"

Animal Collective | 30/11/15

Image: Animal Collective Painting With press photo

Animal Collective is pleased to announce the release of their eleventh full-length album, Painting Withreleased on February 19. Today, the band share first single ‘FloriDada.’ Listen to it below.

For fifteen years Animal Collective has been rewriting the musical map, their line-up and aesthetic shifting with each astonishing release as they continue their pursuit of a new psychedelia. Their wild path has taken them from cramped concrete basement shows and forest floor singalongs to immersive installations at the Guggenheim and performances to millions on national television. So where to from here?

Dizzyingly upbeat and gloriously realized, the new album bounces and pops with an urgent, ecstatic energy, propelled by polyrhythmic beats and gurgling modular synth, with Noah Lennox and Dave Portner’s vocals gleefully falling in and out of syncopation and off-kilter harmony. 

Working as a trio, Portner (Avey Tare), Lennox (Panda Bear) and Brian Weitz (Geologist) began trading demos in early 2015, pursuing a goal of what Portner calls “really short songs: no B.S, get in, get out material…” The three met in Asheville during that spring and began exploring the songs together. Recording took place in the legendary EastWest Studios in Hollywood, home to sessions by The Beach Boys and Marvin Gaye. The album features contributions from John Cale and Colin Stetson, and was engineered by Sonny DiPerri.

The result: Painting With. Warm and personal, kaleidoscopic and high definition, concerned with art (Cubism, Dadaism, and the distorted way those artists viewed the world) and the human experience, and the meeting of both - creating something elemental, joyous, and unmistakably Animal Collective. 

Painting With will be available in standard CD, LP, and a limited deluxe edition format. The album in CD and LP formats will be available in three different covers, featuring each Animal Collective member – Avey Tare, Geologist, and Panda Bear - as painted by Brian DeGraw and displayed below. The limited deluxe edition format exclusively available via the Animal Collective and Domino stores includes a choice of one of the three covers, 180 gram heavyweight vinyl, a zoetropic 12" turntable slipmat that animates when activated in part with a strobe light, and a bonus 7” featuring two exclusive non-album tracks mailed at a later date. All pre-orders, including from iTunes, come with an instant download of "FloriDada."

Mikkeller is an award-winning microbrewery founded in Copenhagen in 2006, which has stockists in more than 40 countries worldwide. Their style of brewing is considered very unique - their experimentation with flavor and their sometimes very limited runs of product has earned them a cult following globally. Mikkeller is consistently ranked in the top 5 breweries in the world.

PORCHES ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM POOL, SHARES VIDEO FOR HOUR, ANNOUNCES 2016 CO-HEADLINE TOUR WITH ALEX G

Porches | 19/11/15

Image: Porches - press shot photo credit Paley Fairman

Porches, the recording project of New York-based Aaron Maine, today announces the new album, Pool, set for release on February 5, 2016, via Domino. Written and recorded in his Manhattan apartment, Pool is an elegantly drawn set of gorgeous, synth-driven pop songs, expanding on and re-articulating the melancholy we’ve come to know from previous single releases on Terrible (2014’s Prism), Birdtapes (2013’s Townie Blunt Guts) and Seagreen (2014’s Leather), and a full length on Exploding in Sound (2013’s Slow Dance In The Cosmos).

Additionally, Porches today shares a video for the current single ‘Hour’, which was released digitally on October 8. Directed by Alan Del Rio Ortiz (Blood Orange, Danny Brown, St. Vincent, Petite Noir), the video stars Maine and Kline as star-crossed lovers on a night excursion. Watch the video now below.

Says Del Rio Ortiz of the clip:

"I wanted to create a simple but hallucinogenic montage dealing with a love affair that no longer exists but would never vanish. On the surface we see a young couple driving around the city and sneaking into a swimming pool. However we also see nostalgic imagery that creates a feeling of loss and illustrates a severed relationship."

Pool is 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 the Manhattan apartment he shares with his partner and collaborator, Greta Kline a.k.a Frankie Cosmos, 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. “I’m feeling like I’m in a more permanent situation than I’ve been in before,” he says. “There is something special about recording at home. It’s why it sounds the way it does. Being able to obsess over it on your own time and being in your own little cube knowing you’re surrounded by the city, being able to go so deep into it and to spend hours building it, loving it: all of that allowed me to reflect and focus on things a little closer.”

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

YOUR FRIEND ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM 'GUMPTION', OUT JANUARY 29TH, SHARES NEW TRACK HEATHERING

Your Friend | 12/11/15

Image: Your Friend launch shot

Taryn Miller, aka Your Friend, is today pleased to share the first taste of new music since last year’s debut EP, in the form of new song ‘Heathering’.

The brooding, elegantly haunted track marks a new chapter in Miller’s career – one that will be fully revealed with the release of her debut full-length, titled Gumption, on January 29th, 2016 via Domino.

 

The release of ‘Heathering’ comes just ahead of Miller’s participation in the Red Bull Music Academy in Paris, during which she will participate in the Cosmorama event, to be held next Tuesday, November 17th, alongside like-minded artists sitting at the musical intersection of lush electronica and indie-inflected pop music.

Since the release of her debut self-recorded EP, Jekyll/Hyde, in early 2014, Taryn Miller has experienced many firsts as an artist – her first tour (with Courtney Barnett), her first SXSW (in 2014, in support of the EP release), and her first time working in a proper studio with a producer. And now, the 24-year-old who resides in Lawrence, Kansas and makes music under the moniker Your Friend, begins the process of another first – the release of her debut full length album, Gumption.

Miller began writing the songs that would become Gumption at her studio space and apartment in Lawrence, Kansas after returning from touring in mid-2014. As a part of the album’s process, Miller acquired a field recorder that she used to explore sound from a familiar place. She took it to her family farm in Dexter, KS and drove around, dipping her senses into childhood nostalgia.

From there, she started recording with producer Nicolas Vernhes (The War on Drugs, Deerhunter) at the Rare Book Room in Brooklyn, which helped Your Friend fulfill a penchant for drones, loops and found sounds. “I paid attention to textures,” Miller says. “I was trying to remove myself from an approach that I had followed before, but still wanted to bring in that melodic element that is most inherent to me, and marry it with a more sonically meditative landscape.”

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

2. Come Back From It

3. To Live With

Your Friend has a handful of European dates on the horizon, and will be on tour in the US in early 2016. Stay tuned for all news and updates via the new Your Friend website HERE.

YORKSTON/THORNE/KHAN ANNOUNCE NEW COLLABORATIVE ALBUM EVERYTHING SACRED

Yorkston/Thorne/Khan | 03/11/15

Image: Yorkston/Thorne/Khan

Yorkston/Thorne/Khan release their collaborative debut album ‘Everything Sacred’ on Friday the 15th of January 2016.  Listen to their cover of Ivor Cutler’s ‘Little Black Buzzer’ featuring the trio joined by the superb and distinctive young Irish singer Lisa O’Neill below.

Yorkston/Thorne/Khan are an experimental group that includes James Yorkston, one of the most “influential singer/songwriters on the Scottish folk scene”, Suhail Yusuf Khan, award winning sarangi player and classical singer from New Delhi and Jon Thorne, best known as jazz double bass player with electro outfit Lamb. 

This is Scottish-Irish-Indian-English music in the raw, Yorkston's familiar steel guitar strings pulled, pushed and bent into more unfamiliar acoustic drones, the bass dropping anchors through the floor. Rather than world music per se, this sounds more idiosyncratic, a temporary structure bivouacking by the side of the indie-folk, art music tradition, while its widening horizons extend back to the Sixties heyday of the Incredible String Band, and forward to this singular album's satellite orbit over the folk music, Indian classical and indie music of today – all these musical ley lines threaded into a new kind of eclectic, domestic setting.

“Playing together as Yorkston / Thorne / Khan, we tackle a wide array of different sounds and songs. Alongside pieces of our own, there’s a fair chunk of improvisation, plus covers of Ivor Cutler’s ‘Little Black Buzzer’ and Lal Waterson’s ‘Song For Thirza’. Jon’s jazz back-ground definitely comes to the fore, as does Suhail’s devotional singing and outstanding sarangi playing. I just do my best to keep up…” – James Yorkston

 ‘Everything Sacred’ will be available on CD (WIGCD367), Standard LP (WIGLP367), Deluxe LP (WIGLP367X) and digitally.  The Deluxe LP features a die cut sleeve with a bonus 7” featuring exclusive tracks ‘Peggio’ and ‘The Blues You Sang’ with download card.  You can pre-order the album  via Dom Mart HERE and iTunes HERE.

The band will be performing the following shows in 2016 - more to follow soon:

Jan 18th - Anstruther Dreel Halls

Jan 19th - Glasgow Celtic Connections

28th Feb - Komedia, Bath

You can also find details of James Yorkston’s forthcoming solo shows HERE.
