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

Image: Asleep Versions

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.

Today, Real Estate release their new single “Had To Hear” as a limited-edition orange-colored vinyl 7”, in a run of just 500 copies. Coming backed with a b-side, a cover of The Nerves’ “Paper Dolls”, which was recorded in Chicago during the ‘Atlas’ recording session, the single is also available digitally via iTunes here. 

STREAM “PAPER DOLLS” HERE

Grab your copy of the limited edition release here: http://smarturl.it/HadToHear7

Alex Bleeker from Real Estate, on how The Nerves cover came into being:

"I'm drawn to the Nerves' intricate guitar work. We're interested in creating similar guitar parts for Real Estate, but the Nerves have a more aggressive sound so I thought it would be fun to wear that "musical costume" for a while. Blondie already did a pretty good job with "Hanging on the Telephone" so "Paper Dolls" seemed like the next logical choice."

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

Austra | 08/05/14

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.

Image: Blood Orange High Street

Devonté Hynes – aka Blood Orange – released his sophomore album Cupid Deluxe to critical acclaim last year. Today, he releases a new music video for Cupid Deluxe's grime-inspired track, "High Street" featuring British rapper, Skepta. Click HERE to watch the video exclusively via ssense.com.

 

Subsequent to the release of Cupid Deluxe, Hynes has quickly established himself as one of the most prolific musicians, songwriters, and producers in contemporary music: Cupid Deluxe earned recognition from both NPR Music and Pitchfork in their Top 50 Albums of the Year compilations. Known as "2014's answer to Lou Reed" according to GQ, 2014 has undoubtedly been the year of Devonté Hynes.

Blood Orange's partnership with SSENSE is part of the international online retailer's series of bi-weekly music-based videos, a project that has seen collaborations between established artists and creatives from every corner of the industry. So far, SSENSE has premiered videos for artists like Sky Ferreira, Hercules & Love Affair, and Henry Krinkle. In their most recent release, Maryam L'Ange directed Chloë Sevigny in a noir-inspired fashion film featuring music by electronica three-piece, Eaux. Every video allows viewers to shop the fashion featured on screen, while Blood Orange and Skepta's "High Street" offers an exclusive preview of the upcoming Fall season.

Cupid Deluxe is available for download via iTunes here, and you can order a physical copy of the release via Dom Mart, here.

WHITE LUNG SHARE NEW VIDEO FOR IN YOUR HOME + TOUR DATES

White Lung | 07/08/14

Image: White Lung In Your Home video still

Fresh from touring Australia and New Zealand, White Lung are poised to release new single ‘In Your Home’ on August 25th before tearing up North America with a string of live dates once again. Mish Way explains the video:

“This video was created by Justin Gradin and Ben Jacques. Justin has done all our album art since our first LP so ‘In Your Home’ is funny, demented and uncomfortable, it's perfect. The star of the video is my dear friend Christina Kenton who pushes the baby cart and smiles at the end. She's an incredible artist herself. This video is filled with people way more talented than the four of us.”

 

Watch the new video for ‘In Your Home’ below.

 

Deep Fantasy is their third full length and proves White Lung to be every bit as confrontational as before, but it appears that Vancouver’s hard hitting rock n’ roll outfit have opened their sound up just enough to draw listeners in:

“I wanted it to sound more like a rock record than a punk record. I didn't want to lose any of the speed and aggression that we have, but I wanted more melodies,” says Way, “But it's still a really hard record.”

Way is more provocative and melodic than ever on Deep Fantasy, lyrically surveying addiction (“Drown With the Monster”), body dysmorphia (“Snake Jaw”) and sexual dynamics (“Down It Goes,”) amongst other dinner table topics.  Guitarist Kenneth William, a devotee of Johnny Marr “plays with the speed of an 80s hardcore dude” whirled in Anne-Marie Vassiliou’s relentless and seemingly effortless approach to drumming.

Mish compiled a playlist: ‘Songs That Inspired Deep Fantasy’, listen  HERE

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

 

White Lung Live Dates:

 

JULY

22nd: Rickshaw Stop, San Francisco, CA

AUSTRA SHARE NEW VIDEO FOR HULLUU

Austra | 07/03/14

Image: Austra Hul

Toronto-based Austra have shared a video for Hulluu, directed by Zeesy Powers and featuring choreography and dancing from Emily Law

Hulluu is the last track on Habitat, a brand-new four-track EP which is out now. Order the limited-edition hand-numbered 12" here from Austra or download from iTunes

Katie Stelmanis from Austra said the following about the video:

 

I knew that I wanted the video for Hulluu to focus on movement. I've known Emily since I was 12 and she is the best dancer/waacker in Toronto so I definitely wanted her to be a part of it. Zeesy is a super-talented artist who I used to live with and collaborate with all the time making soundtracks for her performance art pieces (and who was actually the one to encourage me to start performing my own music in the first place). I thought it would be cool to work together again. We used a green screen and filmed Emily dancing to the track for about 4 hours.

In director Powers' words: "The spirit self is unleashed in the nightclub in your mind. The beat hits and time stops, speeds up, slows down. On the dance floor do you compete with others or only yourself? True freedom fills the body with what we have been, are, and could be. Shedding psychic bodies reveals the person always there. Move."

 

 

The band recently completed US west coast dates with Chvrches after having performed at Coachella and Sasquatch and have upcoming festivals in Canada and Europe including a show at Oval Space in London on 10th July. The band has also announced North American dates supporting Broken Bells. Full dates are below.

 

“'Habitat' is an old song that we've waited almost three years to release," says the band's Katie Stelmanis. "It didn't seem to fit with the sounds of Feel it Break or Olympia, so we decided to finally put it out as a single along with 3 new instrumental tracks.There's a lot of live versions of the song online but people have always pressed us to make a proper recording, so we are especially excited to announce these limited-edition physical copies of the EP. It’s a euro-style computer music experiment produced with love from me, Maya, and Dorian."
