Bob Moses have announced their debut album “Days Gone By” out on Domino on September 18th, 2015.
The highly anticipated full-length debut will feature 10 original tracks, including their current and critically acclaimed single “Talk.” To accompany the announcement of their album “Days Gone By” and upcoming North American tour (dates below), the duo also premiered the official video to “Talk.” Directed by Andreas Arvidsson and Robin Asselmeyer, and shot in Sweden, the mysterious video details the story of a young woman facing life- changing decisions.
The duo will embark on a 25-date North American tour that starts at Symbiosis Festival in California and will make stops in New York, Seattle, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Texas and Florida amongst many other cities. Tickets go on-sale Tuesday, June 30th and will be available to purchase here.
Occupying the fertile ground between organic band and an all-electronic production project, Bob Moses draw on the two poles to vividly resonate across both. A duo with an individual name, Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance’s musical endeavor plays with this kind of duality all over their impressive debut album.
Alternating between brooding dance-floor burners and moments of reflective, downbeat repose, “Days Gone By” is a record that’s not in a rush to get to its destination, preferring to subtly, slowly seduce rather than sway and swagger into submission, weaving a rich spectrum of sensation over the course of its ten tracks.
The balance of man and machine is a delicate dance that Bob Moses have realized with their debut, and “Days Gone By” is a dazzling exploration of discreet, personal moods that engages and eventually engulfs, tastefully coalescing dance music’s giddy rush with more timeless, introspective song craft. Borrowing from both but slaves to neither, as a result the record is equally effective headphone listening, as it is deft club euphoria.
A Domino Mart exclusive, limited edition of “Days Gone By” is available for pre-order here, featuring silver vinyl and a download code with two additional two bonus tracks. Pre-order the album on iTunes here. Be sure to catch the trailblazing duo live on the following tour dates this Summer and Fall.

Double Six are pleased to announce the debut album release by Yannick Ilunga, AKA Petite Noir, ‘La Vie Est Belle / Life Is Beautiful’. The 11 track LP from the half-Congolese, half-Angolan, Cape Town-residing artist is due for release on 11th September 2015. This follows the release of his breakout EP, ‘The King Of Anxiety’, earlier this year.
Recorded at Box Ten Studios in London with Oli Bayston (Boxed In) and Leon Brichard (Ibibio), ‘La Vie Est Belle / Life Is Beautiful’ is a highly accomplished album with a unique concoction of influences. The record seamlessly fuses intricate contemporary electronics and raw post-punk energy with Yannick’s stirring, soulful vocals and African shuffles that echo his homeland. Named after a revered Congolese film of the same name, the album is both a beacon and a vessel of inspiration, offering empowerment to those who need it.
With footage filmed around the streets of Lubumbashi during Yannick’s recent trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo, the first track to be shared from the album - ‘Down’ - blends unrehearsed imagery and joyful sounds to paint a contemporary portrait of Petite Noir's Congolese background and his hopes for the country's future. Watch it below:
La Vie Est Belle / Life Is Beautifulrepresents the first full expression of what Ilunga calls ‘Noirwave’, which is more of a concept than a specific sound. Inspired by innovators like Mos Def and legends Fela Kuti and Tabu Ley, Noirwave encompasses a ‘new African aesthetic’, plain and simple. ‘I think for me, it's just the story their music tells and the sense of freedom. It's about seeing the positive in dark times’.
‘La Vie Est Belle / Life Is Beautiful’ will be available on CD (DS100CD), Digital (DS100D) and double vinyl LP with etched artwork on Side D (DS100LP). Pre-order the album through Dom Mart HERE and iTunes HERE, and instantly download ‘Down’.
Petite Noir is also happy to announce a headline show next month at Lot 45 in Brooklyn. The show, hosted by Afropunk Festival, precedes Petite Noir’s performance at the festival in August.

Baltimore-based musician Dan Deacon has shared a new music video for ‘Meme Generator,” the third video from his recent album Gliss Riffer. It follows the release of the Adult Swim’s Off the Air produced video for “When I Was Done Dying.”
The video directed by Monica Mirabile, stems from an earlier collaboration between the two on a performance art piece with choreography group FLUCT that resulted in Deacon writing an earlier version of “Meme Generator” with lyrics. To complement the video, there’s an interactive video game based on the four different choreography sequences seen in the music video. Surprises abound for those that play the game.
Director Mirabile says in regards to the collaboration:
“Meme Generator is a game of programmed choreography. The players are downloaded into a digital world and asked to play the game of semiotic codes interacting with the "house". A few years ago Dan and I decided to collaborate on a video that I was making with my own performance art collaboration (FLUCT). That video is set in a living room which looped suburban leisure choreography created by the glitch of being physically effected by technology. The inspiration for this video has been an extension of the way our bodies are programmed by the worlds we live. In the music video, four choreographers created four dances in a liminal house. I gave no rules, just asked for a response derived from the choreographers own relationship to the "program." The program being the familiar space of the house. I'm most directly inspired by the choreography of the people that surround me, as we are all affected by a similar marketed reality. We all play the game.”

Matt Mondanile’s Ducktails has released the new single, “Surreal Exposure,” from forthcoming album St. Catherine out July 24. The tracks follows the release of "Headbanging In The Mirror," the first track to be shared from the album, further affirming Mondanile’s melodic lilt is at its most honest and vibrant amongst the new material. Listen to both tracks below.
St. Catherine, Mondanile's fifth full-length under his solo moniker, is a finely-honed collection of baroque pop songs that take the blissful, cascading melodic fretwork that Mondanile has made his signature with both Ducktails and his other band, Real Estate, and applies it to songs of considerable new emotional heft and dynamic range.
In addition to having announced new North American tour dates in August and September, Ducktails will perform a special free show this Friday, June 12 at Elvis Guesthouse in New York previewing material from the new album. Find all dates below.
Mondanile partially wrote and recordedSt. Catherine in bedrooms and studios predominantly in east LA and Glendale, but venturing as far as Berlin and New York. When Mondanile finally settled back in LA at the start of 2015, it was Rob Schnapf, co-producer of Elliott Smith’s classic albums XO and Either/Or, that he turned to in order to help put the finishing touches to St. Catherine.
The Julia Holter-featuring “Church” and “Heaven’s Room,” see Mondanile flex his muscles as a composer and arranger, introducing complex, interlocking vocal harmonies, gorgeously sweeping string parts (provided by Chris Votek and Andrew Tholl) and a host of off-kilter electronic elements into his sonic palate – channelling the likes of Broadcast, and Stereolab but with a younger, wide-eyed sensibility.
St. Catherine will be available on July 24 on CD, standard edition LP, and limited edition coloured vinyl LP. Few copies remain of the limited edition coloured vinyl through the Domino Mart. Pre-order on iTunes and receive both "Headbanging in the Mirror" and "Surreal Exposure" instantly.
Ducktails tour dates: 06-08 Leeds, UK - Brudenell Social Club 06-12 New York, NY – Elvis Guesthouse 07-24 Los Angeles, CA – The Getty Center ^ 07-31 Philadelphia, PA - Boot & Saddle ^ 08-01 Cleveland, OH - Euclid Tavern ^ 08-02 Bloomington, IN - The Bishop ^ 08-03 Chicago, IL - Schubas ^ 08-04 Ferndale, MI - The Loving Touch ^ 08-05 Toronto, Ontario – Garrison ^ 08-06 Montreal, Quebec - Casa del Popolo ^ 08-07 New York, NY - Bowery Ballroom ^ 08-09 Boston, MA - Great Scott ^ 08-26 Davis, CA – Sophia’s Thai Kitchen * 08-28 Seattle, WA – Barboza * 08-29 Vancouver, BC – Fortune Sound Club * 08-30 Portland, OR – Mississippi Studios * 09-01 San Francisco, CA – The Chapel * 09-02 Santa Cruz, CA – The Crepe Place * 09-04 Los Angeles, CA – The Echo * 09-06 San Diego, CA – The Casbah *
Today, the NYC-by-way-of-Canada duo known as Bob Moses premiered their brand new track titled “Talk”. The sultry summer smash is now available on digital platforms including iTunes and Spotify and serves as an exciting taste of what’s to come from the talented producer/DJ duo.
Since Bob Moses’ stellar performances in-front of thousands of fans at Mysteryland, Movement and Lightning In A BottleFestivals last month, the critically acclaimed duo has now confirmed they will be performing live at MoMA PS1 on August 1 as part of their summer Warm Up series, as well an already-sold-out headlining roof-top show at Brooklyn’s Output Club on Friday, July 31.
Hailed by Consequence of Sound after their incredible set at Movement Festival in Detroit the reputable outlet tipped the duo as having “the ability to establish deep house on an entirely new level.”
Bob Moses -- comprised of Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance -- grew out of the underground electronic dance scene, playing in abandoned Brooklyn warehouses and as part of the Marcy Hotel collective alongside the likes of Soul Clap, Wolf + Lamb and Nicolas Jaar.
Having received their oddball moniker from Francis Harris (the iconoclastic DJ/producer and co-founder of tastemaker label Scissor & Thread) after “urban planner” Robert Moses, their name is a testament to the pair’s DNA being very much entrenched in NYC, where they currently reside.
The duo unleashed their debut Domino release last year, an EP titled “First to Cry” and earlier this year collected their previous singles in the "All In All" compilation.
We are proud to announce the debut eponymous album by multi-instrumentalist, producer and songwriter Georgia Barnes, out August 7th, 2015. Watch a trailer for the album featuring the opening track, 'Intro', below.
Additionally, we're excited to announce that Georgia will be performing two headlining shows in New York the week her debut album comes out. Details below, with tickets to both shows on sale this coming Friday, June 5.
Mon Aug 3 || Elvis’ Guesthouse || New York, NY (Buy tickets) Thurs Aug 5 || Baby's All Right || Brooklyn, NY (Buy tickets)
Written, performed and produced by Barnes in its entirety and recorded in her own home-studio, Georgia is the product of two years of obsessive work, but also a young lifetime of voracious music listening.
Elements of the glacial yet hyper-melodic tone of early 00's grime, sweltering, mid-summer west London dub and ragga, sophisticated pop, first wave post-punk agitation, the formative influence of Missy Elliott and the high-concept, illuminated sound-design work of contemporary artists such as The Knife and Hudson Mohawke run through Georgia, a record that reveals new layers of intrigue and ingenuity with every listen.
Born and raised in a deeply musical household in north west London, Georgia combined music study at London's SOAS with a stint working on the counter at Rough Trade and quickly made a lot of very natural musical connections, being invited to play drums with DIY innovators such as Kwes and Kate Tempest.
Georgia herself is a warm, compelling, malleable voice as believable a sensual soul-bearer as she is raucous provocateur (as witnessed at her dynamic recent live shows at The Great Escape and supporting Hot Chip and Kelela) and a very necessary new pop star for 2015.
Georgiawill be available on CD, LP, Deluxe LP, and digitally. The Deluxe LP comes with a bonus 10”. You can pre-order the album via Dom Mart or iTunes. Pre-orders will feature 4 instant grats - "Intro," "Move Systems," "Be Ache" and "Digits."
Watch the video for "Move Systems" below and listen to "Be Ache."

Quickly building a stellar reputation on the back of a series of singles introducing their melodic, snarling guitar pop, The Bohicas release their anticipated debut album ‘TheMakingOf’ on August21st on Domino. Watch the band in action in the trailer for Pulse Films’ director duo thirtytwo’s (Blur’s ‘No Distance Left To Run, LCD Soundsystem’s ‘Shut Up And Play The Hits’) tour documentary from the ‘Swarm Over Essexxx’ tour below.
‘TheMakingOf’ lands blow after blow. Featuring early singles XXX and Swarm, alongside Radio 1 playlisted To Die For and Where You At, the album is two barrels' worth of electrifying tunes and crackling 21st Century rock and roll.
The Bohicas are rock and roll painted in vivid primary colours. Hi def, loud, fast, shiny and above all fun. A barrage of killer hooks, razor blade riffs and choruses that slap you in the face, grab your hand and lead you onto the dance floor. All shot through with pulp imagery torn from the pages of a graphic novel.
‘The Making Of’ was produced by Mark Rankin (Queens Of The Stone Age, Bombay Bicycle Club), Chris ‘Merrick’ Hughes (Tears For Fears, Adam And The Ants) and Oli Bayston (Toy, Boxed In).
The Bohicas are Dominic McGuinness, drummer BrendanHeaney, guitarist DominicJohn and bassist AdrianAcolatse. The Bohicas’ story began in Essex where, as schoolmates, McGuinness, Heaney and John first came together over a love of The Beatles, The Kinks, Ray Charles and the new wave of guitar bands who emerged at the start of the century after the scrag ends of Britpop had finally limped off.
‘The Making Of’ will be available on CD, vinyl and digitally. In addition, the album will also be released in two special formats - the Deluxe Edition will feature a bonus 7” single featuring In The Mood and Rewind Replay, and will be available from Domino Mart and select indies. The same two tracks will also feature on theiTunes Bonus Track Edition.
The album’s artwork was created by illustrator TomerHanuka. “The immediacy and impact of Tomer's style marries perfectly to how we want our music to sound,” explains McGuinness. “The subject of most of the songs is a boy longing for a girl. We thought the cover should be inviting and dangerous so we asked Tomer to draw someone who is about to fuck off into the future and this is your chance to join her.”
