G STANDS FOR GO-BETWEENS: VOLUME 1 1978-1984

The Go Betweens | 01/10/14

Image: Go Betweens press shot B&W

The Domino Recording Company is honoured to announce the upcoming release of an extraordinary anthology for one of the most beloved and influential Australian groups of all-time, The Go-BetweensG Stands For Go-Betweens Volume One extensively documents the band’s origins in an ambitious box containing four vinyl albums, four compact discs and an extensive 112-page book, featuring a trove of archival photos and extensive historical liner notes from founding member Robert Forster, along with additional pieces from guest essayists, fans and contemporaries.

The box set captures the band’s output from 1978 through 1984 and includes the first vinyl re-pressings of their first three studio albums in over thirty years (Send Me A Lullaby, Before Hollywood & Spring Hill Fair), all re-mastered from the original analogue tapes. G Stands For Go-Betweens also brings together their early classic and collectible singles together on a fourth vinyl LP entitled The First Five Singles featuring new artwork from its creators. Additionally, the set comes with four compact discs of rare, hard-to-find and unreleased demos, recordings, radio sessions and a complete live concert radio broadcast from 1982. If that’s not enough, the set comes with a silkscreen of their first promotional poster for their debut single, “Lee Remick", as well as a reproduction of their very first press release from their own Able Label.

For a complete tracklist and in-depth information on this release, please visit the following: http://dominorecordco.com/gobetweens/

We will begin taking pre-orders for this very special limited edition release today and will continue to do so until October 31st.  While a very small overrun may be made available to a few select retail outlets at a later date, this is a deluxe limited package and we will only be pressing this very special collection once.  The only way to guarantee your own copy is to order from Domino Mart HERE.  The stock is estimated to be delivered to customers at the beginning of January.

But here’s the special part: the first 600 orders will get a randomly selected book from the late Grant McLennan’s personal literary collection along with a specially-printed bookmark signed by Robert Forster, certifying their veracity. These books were collected by Grant through his lifetime and some were signed and dated by him on purchase (though no guarantee that every book will have said inscription...it will be the luck of the draw). Recipients will be invited to join the Grant McLennan Book Club over at www.go-betweens.net to share anecdotes and book reports on the copies they receive.

The Go-Betweens were formed by Robert Forster and Grant McLennan in Brisbane, Australia in 1978 while studying at the University of Queensland. The duo, augmented by various drummers and guests, recorded a series of acclaimed singles for seminal Australian labels such as their own Able Label and Missing Link. After a sojourn to London and Glasgow that led to their brief relationship with the legendary Postcard label, they were joined by their more permanent rhythmic counterpart, drummer Lindy Morrison, upon their return home prior to recording their debut album, Send Me A Lullaby. That release brought them to the attention of Rough Trade and a lengthy re-location to London. It was then the band recorded their breakthrough album, Before Hollywood. Produced by John Brand (Aztec Camera, The Waterboys), the album contains some of the group’s most beloved recordings, including McLennan’s “Cattle And Cane” and Forster’s “By Chance”. Shortly thereafter, McLennan would hand off bass playing duties to new member Robert Vickers, who joined the group prior to the recording of Spring Hill Fair.

During their initial phase, the group went on to record three additional albums for Beggars Banquet before splitting up in 1989 in spite of their greatest commercial success with the album 16 Lovers Lane. Forster and McLennan went on to extensive solo careers before reuniting in 2000 and making three more Go-Betweens album together, including the ARIA-winning finalé, Oceans Apart. Sadly, the reunion came to a sudden end when McLennan passed away on May 6th, 2006 from a heart attack and The Go-Betweens disbanded for good.

It would be hard to overstate the shadows cast across the musical landscape of the last three decades by the Go-Betweens’ self-ascribed “striped sunlight sound”. The duo of McLennan and Forster ranks alongside the best of the best songwriting partnerships, influencing younger musicians both expected (such as Belle & Sebastian who reference the group on “Shoot The Sexual Athlete”) and unexpected (as with the late, great Jay Reatard’s fiery cover of “Don’t Let Him Come Back”). This anthology is sure to provide inspiration to a new generation of musicians while providing a very special personal experience for the existing fans.

Following a sold out, euphoric performance at The Royal Festival Hall last Friday, Jon Hopkins can announce the release of a 4 track EP, entitled Asleep Versions, on 10th November 2014.

Asleep Versions was recorded at Sundlaugin Studios, near Reykjavik, in February of this year. Intended to be heard as one single 25 minute piece, it is composed of four decelerated, dreamlike re-imaginings of tracks from the Mercury-nominated  

Immunity. Representing the quieter, more meditative side of the album, these new explorations take its hypnotic, transcendent qualities to a far deeper level. At times almost painfully beautiful, the EP contains a new, semi-acoustic re-interpretation of album track Form By Firelight, featuring additional vocals from the Braids and Blue Hawaii lead vocalist, Raphaelle Standell.

Watch an animated trailer for the EP, designed and directed by Robert Hunter.

 

Asleep Versions will be available on 12" (RUG622T), CD (RUG622CD) & Digital(RUG622D). The tracklisting is as follows:

  1. Immunity (with King Creosote)
  2. Form By Firelight (With Raphaelle Standell)

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’.

‘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

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.

KING CREOSOTE SHARES VIDEO FOR SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN PLUS UNION CHAPEL DATE

King Creosote | 20/08/14

Image: King Creosote 2

Something To Believe In will be released as the new single from King Creosote on 20th October 2014. The track is the elegiac album opener from From Scotland With Love, which critics described as ‘a lovingly crafted thing’ (Independent on Sunday), ‘consistently superb’ (Loud & Quiet – 9/10) and ‘a beautiful thing, flitting between affecting, inspiring, amusing and enchanting’ (Time Out – 4* lead review).

 

King Creosote can also announce a show at London’s Union Chapel on 3rd February 2015. Kenny will be accompanied by a six-piece band for what promises to be a very special night. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased HERE. Both the matinee and evening shows on Saturday 27th September at London’s Barbican venue, Milton Court, are now sold out.

From Scotland With Love was created in collaboration with director Virginia Heath and Producer Grant Keir as an audio-accompaniment to a poetic documentary film of the same name, which was commissioned for the Commonwealth Games. Featuring archive footage but no narration or interview, the film works around themes of love and loss, war, resistance, emigration, work and play, and is driven as much by the music as it is the images. For the first time King Creosote found himself being able to write from other people’s perspectives. The result is From Scotland With Love, one of King Creosote’s most widescreen cinematic and finest pieces of work to date. From Scotland With Love is available now through Dom Mart, and iTunes, with an extended version available HERE.

AUSTRA SHARE VIDEO FOR 'DOEPFER'; 'HABITAT' EP OUT NOW

Austra | 06/08/14

Image: austra habitat

Following on from videos for EP tracks ‘Habitat’ and ‘Hulluu’, Austra are pleased to share a video for ‘Doepfer’. Directed by Adrienne Crossman and filmed in various locations around Toronto, the ‘Doepfer’ video premiered with THUMP today and can be viewed here.

Made up of footage taken in Toronto and Berlin, the video for Austra’s Doepfer acts as a disruptive visual meditation on the third released track from their Habitat EP. Accompanying the percussive-heavy dark synth soundtrack, the visual landscape of the video is made up of eerie footage of dark hallways, a dead mouse, silhouetted figures and mysterious textured surfaces, including a pixelated close up of billowing tin foil. As the music intensifies so do the visuals, with an increased frequency of anamorphic glitched disruption. Shot, edited and co-directed (with drummer Maya Postepski) by Adrienne Crossman, the video for Doepfer is a glance into the distorted intricacies of the band’s increasingly experimental musical nature.

Toronto-based Austra’s Habitat, a four-track EP, is out now on Domino. Order the limited-edition hand-numbered 12” here from Austra or download from iTunes.

FRANZ FERDINAND SHARE VIDEO FOR STAND ON THE HORIZON

Franz Ferdinand | 04/08/14

Image: Stand On The Horizon

Franz Ferdinand have revealed the new video to their new single, Stand On The Horizon , which is released through Domino. 

Directed by Karan Kandhari , the director of the award winning film Bye Bye Miss Goodnight and more recently The Vaccines Melody Calling video, the stunningly shot video is based around a live performance in an old-fashioned club. Kandhari said of the video:

An awkward look at innocence and experience.  An attempt to capture a sparkle in the melancholy and a warmth in the strangeness.  I hope people find it both sad and funny / hopeful and human.  We either achieved all of this, or totally failed and ended up with an alternative universe version of Franz Ferdinand.

Taken from their much acclaimed fourth album, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action, the song is inspired by Alex’s time in Sunderland as a child, mentioning both the local Marsden Rock and South Shields Metro station.

This summer has already seen the band play a rapturous show at T in the Park, perform as part of this year’s Somerset House series in London and headline Fuji Rock in Japan. Currently playing festivals across Europe, the band head to South America for a run of shows in September.
