Joe Goddard today announces brand new track 'Electric Lines' featuring Alexis Taylor, ahead of the release of solo album Electric Lines this Friday, April 21st. The track premieres today through a completely unique immersive site that has been created by Domino Recording Co and Joe.
Designed to share his stories directly with fans prior to Electric Lines’ release, the site is an extension of Goddard’s playlist of the same name - which he’ll continue to curate throughout 2017. Charting his musical influences, passions and the friendships that inspired the creative process when making the forthcoming album, the interactive site uses Spotify’s API technology to power a radio show style experience with original audio commentary from Goddard.
London-based Toby Mortimer (George Fitzgerald’s ‘Crystalise, Loyle Carner’s ‘Stars & Shards’, King Creosote’s ‘You Just Want’) created a set of bespoke illustrations for the site, with audio responsive loops animated by design collective People.
Joe Goddard will be bringing 'Electric Lines' to North America next month. See below for the full itinerary:

(Sandy) Alex G is pleased to announce his new album, Rocket - set for a May 19th, 2017 release.
Rocket is the Philadelphia-based artist’s eighth full-length release—an assured statement that follows a slate of humble masterpieces, many of them self-recorded and self-released, stretching from 2010’s RACE to his 2015 Domino debut, Beach Music. Rocket’s sessions began shortly after Beach Music’s ended, with Alex tracking songs at home, by himself and with friends, in the gaps between a hectic 2015 and 2016 touring schedule. Rocket was mixed by Jacob Portrait (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Bass Drum of Death), who also lent his hand to Beach Music, giving the album a fine-tuning that retains the homespun personality of earlier efforts.
(Sandy) Alex G will be playing a special album release show in Brooklyn, New York, on Thursday May 18th. The show will be at The Park Church Co-Op, and tickets go on sale this Friday here. Also announcing today is an all-ages hometown Rocket show on July 8th at Union Transfer in Philadelphia, PA. Tickets go on sale this Friday here. Both shows will feature special guests.
Stay tuned for more tour dates to be announced soon.
Watch the music video for "Bobby" and listen to "Witch" below.
Rocket is available to pre-order now on ltd. red translucent vinyl, ltd. red translucent cassette (Domino Mart exclusive), ltd. random colorway cassette (Bandcamp exclusive), CD, and digital download.
Dirty Projectors is out today! Three days early, the preorders are in the mail and the album is available in both physical and digital stores. This morning, David Longstreth of Dirty Projectors hand-delivered the LP to a fan in Los Angeles, who was randomly selected from the album’s pre-orders. Following this surprise delivery, the full album streamed via the Dirty Projectors Facebook page, and immediately afterwards, the album was available widely for fans to stream and buy.
The deluxe edition of the album is available exclusively through the Domino Mart. The deluxe features the album on 150g clear with black smoke double LP, housed in a wide spine jacket with a 16-page 11x11 libretto, and an etched D side. The first pressing of the CD features an O-card sleeve with a 16-page libretto.
