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

The Go Betweens | 10/01/14

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 ANNOUNCES ASLEEP VERSIONS EP; BROOKLYN SHOW

Jon Hopkins | 09/24/14

Following a string of incredible summer festival performances, including Pitchfork Music Festival and Osheaga, Jon Hopkins is pleased to announce the release of a 4 track EP, entitled “Asleep Versions,” available November 11th in the US (November 10th in the rest of the world). 

Watch an animated trailer for the EP, designed and directed by Robert Hunter and listen to Form By Firelight feat. Raphaelle Standell below.

In news sure to delight New York-based fans, a one-off headline show has been announced for November 21st, Jon Hopkins will be playing the FIXED 10 Year Anniversary event at Output in Brooklyn. All worldwide live dates are below. 

“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. 

“Asleep Versions” will be available in 12", CD and digitally. Pre-order the 12” and CD from Domino Mart or digitally from iTunes. In addition, there'll be a limited edition double CD package of both Immunity and “Asleep Versions” available on November 10th. Pre-order it now from Domino Mart.

ALL WE ARE ANNOUNCE SELF-TITLED DEBUT ALBUM, SHARE 'I WEAR YOU' VIDEO

09/18/14

Image: All We Are

Liverpool-based trio All We Are are proud to announce their eponymous debut album, due out January 6 2015 on Double Six / Domino. The first taste of this forthcoming album, the harmony-driven single “I Wear You”, today arrives with a video directed by Kate Moross (Jessie Ware, Wild Beasts, Disclosure), which brings the album art by Leif Podhajsky to life.  

WATCH THE VIDEO FOR “I WEAR YOU” HERE.

All We Are’ will be available in CD, LP, and digital formats. A limited edition LP featuring a bonus 7” with the tracks “Reach” and “Just Give It To Me” will be available through the Dom Mart. Pre-order the album on physical formats through the Dom Mart HERE and digitally through iTunes HERE. All pre-orders come with instant downloads of “I Wear You” and “Feel Safe”.

All We Are are a global gathering made up of Ireland’s Richard O'Flynn (drums, vocals), Norway’s Guro Gikling (bass, vocals) and Brazil’s Luis Santos (guitar, vocals), who met at university in Liverpool. 

Written initially in a cabin in the isolated Norwegian mountains, with follow-up sessions in a secluded cottage in North Wales, the forthcoming self-titled album was finished and perfected in their studio in a disused school in Liverpool. The record was then recorded in London with producer Dan Carey (Bat For Lashes, M.I.A, Hot Chip).

A total democracy, the band write all music and lyrics together. Born of long, late nights, dreamy melodies, supple psychedelics and gorgeous midnight disco grooves – this is the sublime, swirling sound of All We Are.

Following tours with Warpaint and Jungle, All We Are will be headlining two UK shows this October and have also been invited to perform as main support to London Grammar on their European tour. For all tour dates, head here.
