THE CLANG GROUP - THE CLANG GROUP EP 16TH FEBRUARY 2015

20/11/14

Image: The Clang Group

Clang Bang Wallop What a Picture!

Clanger aka Cliff Hanger aka Clive Langer wants to be a pop star at the age of 60!

After 35 years of producing other people’s discs for other dreamers (including Elvis Costello, Madness, Morrissey, Dexy’s Midnight Runners, The Teardrop Explodes and most recently his new label mates The Amazing Snakeheads) it’s about time he got back to what he loved best.

So...he’s only gone and done it, started a rock and roll band, The Clang Group, with the legendary Roxy Music saxophonist Andy Mackay. 

The concept was conceived at a dinner in February 2014 in Bethnal Green with drummer Gregg Braden bemoaning the lack of stage action. These two musicians having a coincidental window decide to form a band there and then.

The Sensational Deaf School, Clive’s original band, have had a remarkable renaissance in the last few years, rejuvenating Clive’s love of playing his old guitar, with astonishing aplomb on this remarkable EP.  Twang Twang Twang!! Electric Twang Ooooh eeeh ooohy!! Clang Bangg Wallop! What a Picture!

Now for your aural perusal I have in my tremulous sweating hands The Clang Group EP making a Global Work Space for Aural Meeting!!

Which includes Clive revisiting the incredible Shipbuilding which he wrote with Elvis Costello for the 'godfather' Robert Wyatt. 

 

Suggs 2014

The Clang Group are Clive Langer (guitar + vox), Andy Mackay (sax), Gregg Braden (drums), John Wood (keys) and Malcolm Lunan (bass). The Clang Group EP will be available on Monday the 16th of February 2015 on 10” vinyl (RUG639) and digitally (RUGD639).  You can purchase the EP HERE.  Listen to lead track ‘Rhoda’ HERE.  Tracklisting is as follows:

  

1.   Rhoda

2.   Places And Things

3.   Breaking Out

4.   Shipbuilding

BONNIE PRINCE BILLY SHARES THE VIDEO FOR ‘NEW BLACK RICH (TUSKS)’

Bonnie Prince Billy | 13/11/14

Image: Bonnie New Black Rich

The newest single from Singer's Grave A Sea of Tongues is molten, set to burn like a classic torch song should-- in your ears and forever! On ‘New Black Rich (Tusks)’, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy collaborated with longtime songwriting partner Bryan Rich to create the ardent ballad.  The mood of ‘New Black Rich (Tusks)’ is circumspect at best compared to first single ‘Quail and Dumplings’. Where Quailanticipated a bright future, which salved for the hardness of the present times, the ‘New Black Rich’ solution for present-day ennui is stated in its first line: "I'll say goodbye before we meet". ‘New Black Rich (Tusks)’ is brooding, with the fiddle of Billy Contreras, Chris Scruggs' mandolin and Emmett Kelly's guitar adding depth and shadows. The B- side, ‘Black as Grace’, is exclusive to this 7 inch single and not found on Singer's Grave! While ‘New Black Rich (Tusks)’ holds itself up with a sense of formal structure, ‘Black As Grace,’ appears as if it's unravelling, with Bryan Rich's vocals dividing the sounds.

The video for ‘New Black Rich (Tusks)’ reveals a love story, one filled with longing and hope. Bonnie’s words unmistakably come to life and manifest as tusks, hidden within his beard. He dances slowly, longing for a partner with whom he can share his experiences. As darkness falls, Bonnie wanders into a speakeasy, his eyes fixated on a woman performing on stage. Her presence is soothing, as she also exhibits physical characteristics of a creature. Bonnie initially finds solace in his new companion, but is their similarity enough to create a lasting relationship? Or will his expectations and dreams of finding a complete partner shatter his reality? Watch how it unfolds in the video for ‘New Black Rich (Tusks)’, now on Aquarium Drunkard!

Watch "New Black Rich (Tusks)" Here!

 

Also, in London – as previously announced – Bonnie is inviting fans and passers-by alike to express their thoughts and create a “sea of tongues” on a new billboard poster on Broadway Market. It’s inspired by the artwork for his current album Singer’s Grace A Sea Of Tongues and he wants YOU to add to it.

For those of you too far away and/or lazy: Don’t fret! Visit HERE where we have recreated the environment to express yourself via the means of pixel & hand.

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy will embark on a European tour this month including two sold out shows at St John’s in Hackney on November 18th and 19th.

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy will be playing the following dates:

15 November: Gnration, Braga, Portugal

Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, or PBVSGR as the album has been referred to cryptically online over the past few months, is the fifth studio album from Animal Collective founding member and critically acclaimed solo artist Noah Lennox, a.k.a. Panda Bear. The album will be released via Domino on January 12th in the UK and January 13th in the United States.

Watch the video for Mr Noah, the album’s first single, directed by AB/CD/CD, below. The Mr Noah EP, a 4-song standalone EP featuring the single, plus 3 new tracks that will not be on the forthcoming album is available to buy and to stream now. The exclusive iTunes pre-order of the album will come with the EP as instant gratification tracks.

Noah has had a far-from-quiet few years since the release of his fourth solo record, 2011’s Tomboy. Since the breakout success of 2007’s universally-adored Person Pitch, each new Panda Bear release is a highly anticipated event, and a high-profile Daft Punk collaboration later (Doin’ It Right, from Random Access Memories), that’s more the case than ever.

 

Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper finds our hero leaving the airy minimalism of Tomboy and unpacking his sonic toolbox again, rearranging the multitude of his disparate influences into the ever-morphing concoction he refers to as “the soup.”

Old school hip-hop textures and production techniques meld with the intuitive, cyclical melodies he has become known for, for a sound that is at once dense and playful.

Recording for the album came together everywhere from El Paso, Texas, to a garage by the beach near his home in Lisbon, Portugal. In a relationship that already proved fruitful on Tomboy, Noah partnered again with Pete “Sonic Boom” Kember, this time in a more top-to-bottom production role.

 

Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper signifies a pivotal point for an artist who has proven he can continue to evolve while remaining at the top of his game. As Noah says, “It’s sort of marking change — not necessarily an absolute death, but the ending of something, and hopefully the beginning of something else.”

 

Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper will be available in Standard CD and 2xLP formats, and Limited Edition Deluxe 2xCD and 3xLP formats. The Limited Edition Deluxe 2xCD and 3xLP includes the 4-song Mr Noah EP in addition to the album in deluxe packaging. Exclusive bundles that include a limited edition T-shirt and lithograph are available via the Animal Collective webstore. All pre-orders come with an instant download of the Mr Noah EP.

WILD BEASTS SHARE VIDEO FOR FORTHCOMING SINGLE PALACE

Wild Beasts | 04/11/14

Image: PalaceWB

Today Wild Beasts have shared a video for ‘Palace’, the band’s forthcoming single which will be released on 24th November 2014. The video was filmed by Alex Turvey. Tom Fleming explains the concept behind the video:

‘The idea was to match the feel of a cheap game show with the content of a rather cruel psychological experiment. The content was unknown to us before the shoot; we were kept in a closed room until we were filmed, one by one, in a single take. What you see is us being introduced to the content for the first time and our genuine reactions to the objects and people involved. We wanted to make something that felt like an event and a sort of project, rather than what passes for a traditional music video.’

Present Tense – Special Edition, featuring the original album augmented by a bonus disc of remix material from artists including Factory Floor, Juan Atkins, Lone, East India Youth, Sohn as well as a brand new remix of ‘Palace’ from Foals, is available to purchase now.


Wild Beasts will be curating and headlining a special end-of-year event in Leeds entitled ‘Soft Future’, on December 11th. The band will perform live on stage at 9.45pm and the night will feature appearances from East India Youth, Evian Christ (DJ), Nathan Fake, Fryars and Forest Swords (DJ). Tickets for ‘Soft Future’ are available HERE.

Wild Beasts will also be performing at the O2 in London as special guests to The National on 26th November. Full live dates are as follows:

November 5: V-Hall, Seoul, South Korea

November 7: Mongkol RCA, Bangkok, Thailand

November 8: Beep Studios, Singapore

AVEY TARE’S SLASHER FLICKS SHARE SHORT FILM FOR ‘CATCHY (WAS CONTAGIOUS)’

Avey Tare | 31/10/14

Image: ATSF Catchy (Was Contagious) video still

Happy Halloween Slasher fans!

Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks is proud to share the short film for ‘Catchy (Was Contagious)’. The tense, eerie 9 minute short is inspired by early black & white horror films, and finds its perfect soundtrack in the supernatural sounds of Slasher Flicks.

The video for ‘Catchy (Was Contagious)’ was directed by Abigail Portner, with Giovanni Ribisi working in the role of Director of Photography. It was shot in and around Atwater, Los Angeles, in August of this year.

 

“I wanted to make a video that referenced old horror movies from the 1950s Universal horror era. I am obsessed with movies like The Third Man, Truffaut’s 400 Blows and Ingmar Bergman’s films. I wanted it to have the style of classic old LA so we used the LA river and the neighborhoods surrounding it as locations. The movie Them from the 1940s was shot on the LA river and I wanted it to have that feel also. Parts of Grease and Chinatown were filmed there too. The videos I make for Animal Collective and my own personal style is pretty specific so it was great to work with Giovanni because I feel like he just got it. We were on the same page thematically, reference-wise and with regards to the style of filming and our goal - to create something that has a classic, pretty 1950’s feel to it but the undertone is still very dark.” – Abigail Portner on ‘Catchy (Was Contagious)’

The short film will have its live premiere tonight, prior to Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks’ set at the Haunted Hotel Bash at the Ace Hotel, Los Angeles. In addition, the Halloween party will feature a screening of John Carpenter’s horror classic Halloween; DJ sets by Zach Cowie (Wooden Wisdom), Amason (Miike Snow), Clifton Weaver (Funky Sole), and Neil Schield (Origami Vinyl); and visuals by Abigail Portner.

AVEY TARE’S SLASHER FLICKS

Slasher Flicks by name alone is not what it appears to be. Scrambled horror film soundtracks? Not even remotely. A bunch of East Coasters making their quintessential LA album? No, more like escape from LA, say guitar-wielding Avey Tare (of Animal Collective), keyboard player and singer Angel Deradoorian (of Dirty Projectors, Deradoorian), and drummer Jeremy Hyman (of Ponytail, Dan Deacon). If LA is an environment to get lost in, as they claim, this group sewing roots in SoCal have become lost in the best way: relocating and reinventing sounds they’re already skilled in making, sounds that as Avey Tare says, are not only regionally unrestricted but that “come from a place that’s not human.”

THE GO-BETWEENS: THE STORY OF THE GRANT MCLENNAN BOOK CLUB

The Go Betweens | 24/10/14

Image: THE GO BETWEENS news image

There was a time where being a Go-Betweens fan meant to be part of an inadvertent secret club.  To establish with a new acquaintance that common connection was a social and musical shorthand to understanding one another, that you’d met a worthy conversant at the least but quite possibly a lifelong friend as well.  And it wasn’t willful elitism or snobbery: The Go-Betweens were "the secret" fans wanted to share with the world and continue to do so, even today.  And I can’t help but think that it was this spirit of sharing and mutual respect between the band and their fans that inspired “The Grant McLennan Book Club”.

How this came to pass was that Grant’s books had been collected and stored since his passing in 2006.  As we were getting into the thick of assembling G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume One, Grant’s son, Nathan, approached and asked Robert Forster what he thought should be done with the books.   In a moment of inspiration, Robert wondered aloud how great it would be if we could actually share this collection with fans, like how you would give a good book to a friend after you’ve finished reading it, not necessarily worried about its return.

An idea was born and, with Nathan’s blessing and generosity, some 30-odd boxes began their journey from Queensland to the Domino warehouse in London. While there was no doubting Grant’s taste, we didn’t know what we were getting, to be honest.  Cracking opening the boxes, we were pleased to find a number of surprises.  Firstly, a good number of the books bore an inscription in the front pages, usually in the form of Grant’s signature along with the city and the date of the purchase.  And then of course was the books themselves, a wide array of hardback first edition novels, paperbacks, poetry books, biographies, art folios… 1800 in all.

So, the first 600 folks that have ordered G Stands For Go-Betweens Volume One will be receiving one of these books, along with a bookmark signed by Robert Forster, ceremonially certifying the veracity of the books’ origins.  There will be a forum for folks to congregate at www.go-betweens.net, share their box number, the book received with their box, and as much detail on the book you care to share, like any good book club should.

Now, some of you that are paying closer attention have probably noticed that while the offering was only for the first six hundred orders, that suspiciously leaves another 1200 books unspoken for.  What’s the deal?  I suppose you’re going to have to wait and see what’s to come after Volume One.

PANDA BEAR ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM 'PANDA BEAR MEETS THE GRIM REAPER'; PRE-ORDER TODAY; WATCH VIDEO FOR 'MR NOAH'

Panda Bear | 22/10/14

Image: Panda Bear announce shot

Today, Domino and Panda Bear are pleased to announce the forthcoming release of Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, the fifth studio album from Animal Collective founding member and critically acclaimed solo artist Noah Lennox, a.ka. Panda Bear. Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, or PBVSGR, as the album has been referred to cryptically online over the past few months, will be out January 12th in the UK and January 13th in the United States via Domino.

Mr Noah, the album’s first single, comes to you today via the premiere of an AB/CD/CD directed video, VIEW HEREAlso available today is the Mr Noah EP, a 4-song standalone EP featuring the single, plus 3 new tracks that will not be on the forthcoming album. Stream or buy the EP today. The exclusive iTunes pre-order of the album will come with the EP as instant gratification tracks - link to follow.

 

Noah has had a far-from-quiet few years since the release of his fourth solo record, 2011’s Tomboy. Since the breakout success of 2007’s universally-adored Person Pitch, each new Panda Bear release is a highly anticipated event, and a high-profile Daft Punk collaboration later (Doin’ It Right, from Random Access Memories), that’s more the case than ever.

 

Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper finds our hero leaving the airy minimalism of Tomboy and unpacking his sonic toolbox again, rearranging the multitude of his disparate influences into the ever-morphing concoction he refers to as “the soup.”

Old school hip-hop textures and production techniques meld with the intuitive, cyclical melodies he has become known for, for a sound that is at once dense and playful.

Recording for the album came together everywhere from El Paso, Texas, to a garage by the beach near his home in Lisbon, Portugal. In a relationship that already proved fruitful on Tomboy, Noah partnered again with Pete “Sonic Boom” Kember, this time in a more top-to-bottom production role.

 

Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper signifies a pivotal point for an artist who has proven he can continue to evolve while remaining at the top of his game. As Noah says, “It’s sort of marking change — not necessarily an absolute death, but the ending of something, and hopefully the beginning of something else.”

 

Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper will be available in Standard CD and 2xLP formats, and Limited Edition Deluxe 2xCD and 3xLP formats. The Limited Edition Deluxe 2xCD and 3xLP includes the 4-song Mr Noah EP in addition to the album in deluxe packaging. Exclusive bundles that include a limited edition T-shirt and lithograph are available via the Animal Collective webstore. All pre-orders come with an instant download of the Mr Noah EP.

ROYAL TRUX - POUND FOR POUND REISSUED ON DOMINO ON 1ST DECEMBER 2014

Royal Trux | 22/10/14

Image: Pound For Pound News

The final Royal Trux album to be released while they were still a live, touring entity, ‘Pound for Pound’ will be reissued by Domino on 1 December 2014.

In ‘98, Royal Trux had emerged from their Virgin contract buyout, proudly bearing the brand of SELL-OUT! tattooed on their forehead by the angry mini-hordes of indie rock. As always, out was in and the only direction was UP. 

The year is now 2000 —Y2K and all that jazz. Innarestin’ times! The next move for Royal Trux started by reconvening their Floridian rhythm section of Dan Brown and Chris Pyle, who’d been a part of the Virgin act. Together with Kenny Nasta (who’d come on later in the Virgin period and then stuck around), these guys formed a boogie-tastic base while Neil ramped up the riffing for a set of songs that explored southern rock mythos lick by lick. On top, Jennifer and Neil furthered the hip-hop-styled dual-vocal approach from ‘The Radio-Video EP’, with each of them fully loaded with a separate set of lyrics and melody; two trains on the same track with tight-ass, split-second timing. 

‘Pound for Pound’ plays like the follow-through to the two Virgin Records, but separated by four years and a flurry of other releases, just to keep you guessing. Knowing Royal Trux, this was the beginning of nothing — the next album was just as likely to slide into another direction — and as it transpired, ‘Pound for Pound’ was the last go-round for the muse and bliss of Royal Trux, both of which involved being wildly out of step with any movement, group or person that actually seemed to want them around. A far cry from the larval keenings of ‘Luminous Dolphin’ and ‘Cut You Loose’ — but in that, an invariably perfect bow.

Pound For Pound will be available on CD (WIG81CD) and vinyl (WIG81 LP).  Pre-order the album HERE.

BONNIE PRINCE BILLY SHARES VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE QUAIL AND DUMPLINGS

Bonnie Prince Billy | 15/10/14

Image: BPBQuailDumplings

The "Quail and Dumplings" single plays in the wake of Singer's Grave a Sea of Tongues, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's latest album which exists simultaneously as a new album, an alternate-reality version of Wolfroy Goes To Town and the concluding record of two separate perceived trilogies within the Prince's catalog. There is much on the table here, and "Quail and Dumplings" manages to balance contrasting perspectives within itself - one of great lack and wanting, and the other of a sense of greatness coming. This shifting tone is greatly enhanced by the fiddle of Billy Contreras and the remarkable voice of the well-travelled Caroline Peyton. The song alludes to travelers who may be unclear on when their next meal is coming, but are still determined to keep their positive outlook on the journey of life. And much like the song itself, the video for “Quail and Dumplings” operates with a set of conflicting perspectives! You’ll find Bonnie & friends’ frolicking through the “Quail and Dumplings” water park enjoying all that the day has to offer, but is all what it seems? The struggle between the balances of happiness and grief and its contrast become apparent during their day, but will the friends overcome it?

Always expect the unexpected with Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy; and only His Grace can enhance the song’s shifting tone in such an uproarious fashion! The "Quail and Dumplings" video, directed by Ben Berman, has been called "the greatest video ever made" - watch and agree!

Quail and Dumplings will be available on 7" (RUG633) and as a 2 track Digital Bundle (RUG633D) backed with “Pull Your Eyes Out, Molly".

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy will be playing the following dates:

18 November: St John’s, London, UK

19 November: St John’s, London, UK

20 November: AB, Brussels, Belgium

21 November: Le Guess Who Festival, Utrecht, Netherlands

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), 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. Featuring archive footage from the National Library of Scotland Scottish Screen Archive, 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.

Watch the videos for Something To Believe In’ and ‘For One Night Only’, featuring footage from the film ‘From Scotland With Love’.

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.

Jon Hopkins | 25/09/14

Image: Jon Hopkins Asleep still

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)
  3. Breathe This Air (Asleep Version)
  4. Open Eye Signal (Asleep Version)

A Limited Edition Double CD featuring Immunity and Asleep Versions EP will also be available from 10th November. Pre-order it HERE. The tracklisting is as follows:

 

DISC 1 – Immunity                DISC 2 – Asleep Versions

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.

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.

Before then, the group will release ‘In Your Home’ on August 25th, the follow-up single to ‘Face Down’, both of which feature on their current album Deep Fantasy which was released earlier this year. 

 

Deep Fantasy is available to buy now from Dom Mart HERE and through iTunes HERE
