THE KILLS ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM ASH & ICE, TO BE RELEASED 3RD JUNE

The Kills | 03/04/16

Image: The Kills launch shot

The Kills have unveiled details of their highly anticipated fifth album. Entitled Ash & Ice, the album will be released on June 3rd through Domino. Accompanying today’s announcement is the video for brand new single ‘Doing It To Death’, directed by Wendy Morgan (Janelle Monae, Laura Mvula) and shot in Los Angeles last month. 

 

 

Over their almost decade-and-a-half career, The Kills have released four records. Each one a restless, reckless enigmatic art statement that bristled with tension, anxiety, sex, unstudied cool and winking ennui, yet not one of them sounded like the previous one. Ash & Ice is the follow up to 2011’s critically lauded Blood Pressures and was five years in the making in part due to Jamie Hince’s five hand surgeries, which resulted in him having to re-learn how to play guitar with a permanently damaged finger. 

Unlike earlier albums, which have largely been written and recorded at Key Club Studio in Benton Harbor, Michigan, the bulk of the recording for Ash & Ice took place in a rented house in LA and at the world famous Electric Lady Studios in NYC. The album was produced by Jamie Hince and co-produced by John O’Mahony (Metric & The Cribs), and mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Arcade Fire, Amy Winehouse) and Tchad Blake (Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys).

It was during Hince’s recuperation from surgery that he first started sketching out what would become the songs for the album. To shake up the writing process, Hince booked a solo trip on the infamous Trans-Siberian Express for inspiration while Alison Mosshart, now residing in Nashville, TN, wrote some of the most affecting, poetically candid lyrics that she ever has, painting word pictures that mine the dangerous terrain between romantic obsession, prophecy and tough love. Where previous albums had an air of detachment and emotional austerity, underpinned by an uneasy self-awareness and unexpressed anger, the 13 songs on Ash & Ice are more understated, less tempestuous and more affecting because of that, exposing the kind of push-pull you feel when you find yourself in a complicated but all-consuming relationship. Ash & Ice is The Kills at their emotionally charged, arresting best. Prepare to be slayed.

The album details come with additional tour dates, including dates in DC, Boston, Detroit, Chicago and San Francisco. All dates are listed below, and new shows go on sale this coming Friday, March 4.

THE RANGE'S "FIVE FOUR" VIDEO; NYC + LA SHOWS THIS WEEK

The Range | 02/29/16

Image: The Range Five Four thumbnail

Following the release of the first single “Florida” from his forthcoming album Potential, Brooklyn, NY-based musician The Range (AKA James Hinton) has shared “Five Four” with an accompanying video. Watch it below now.

As its backbone, Potential utilizes a series of vocal samples that Hinton found in the deep corners of YouTube. “Five Four” finds Hinton exploring his love of early ’00s grime and mid ‘00s electronica while bringing it to a new sonic and emotional whole.  The music video, directed by Daniel Kaufman, features the London, UK-based grime MCs Ophqi and Super Thought, the musicians from the original YouTube sourced clip that Hinton used to write and produce “Five Four.”

Hinton had the following to say about the inspiration behind the song, and how it incorporates Ophqi and Superior Thought’s lyrics:
“Five Four is about the frustration of not being able to change the circumstances of a situation. I think ST captures it well - “Scarred from the hard tasks and dreams that never came to pass … And yet he tried to walk the straight and narrow path but he fiend for the lights and the drama need an arsenal and an armor to inflict the force and cause trauma.”  

In addition to the forthcoming album Potential, a documentary titled Superimpose, directed by Daniel Kaufman, out this spring, will look at the human stories behind Ophqi, Super Thought, and the other unknown artists included on the album. As Hinton states, “I am very conscious that these people who I have sampled elevate what I do, just as much as my record brings their work somewhere else.”

In addition to recently being announced on the lineups of Osheaga Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and FORM Arcosanti, The Range will be playing a handful of pre-release shows this month in Los Angeles, New York City, London and Austin for SXSW. More dates to be announced soon.

WHITE LUNG ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM PARADISE OUT MAY 6TH, SHARE VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE ‘HUNGRY’

White Lung | 02/24/16

Image: White Lung

After the critically acclaimed release Deep Fantasy (2014), White Lung return with their fourth studio album Paradise, due out May 6, 2016 on Domino. Coming in at a succinct yet powerful 28 minutes, the album simmers with desire and pain, love and beauty, and a seething urgency, hurtling towards the album closer and title track Paradise at signature breakneck speed.

In addition to today’s album announcement, White Lung are pleased to share the video for first single ‘Hungry’, directed by Justin Gradin, and starring Amber Tamblyn (Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants, The Ring, 127 Hours, House).

Says Gradin on the video:

“’Hungry’ plays with identity and perception, and the idea that sometimes public attention can create more isolation and delusion. The video focuses on a self-obsessed girl (who is barely famous as the model on a brand of canned condensed milk) as she struggles to seem important while being haunted by the ghosts of fame until her eventual epiphany of disposability."

For the making of Paradise, vocalist Mish Barber-Way, guitarist Kenneth William and drummer Anne-Marie Vassiliou reconnected in Los Angeles to work with producer Lars Stalfors (HEALTH, Cold War Kids, Alice Glass). In October of 2015, White Lung spent a month in the studio, working closely with Stalfors to challenge what could be done with their songs. Bringing all the energy, unique guitar work and lyrical prowess the band are known for to the studio, White Lung curated their songs with a new pop sensibility, focusing in on making a record for the present - “I wanted a record that sounded like it was made in 2016”, said William. Mixed by Stalfors and later mastered by Joe LaPorta, Paradise is their smartest, brightest songwriting yet. 

Mish Barber-Way and Kenneth William sat down with Annie Clark aka St. Vincent to discuss the making of the album and their creative process. The entire conversation can be read here.

“There’s this really stupid attitude that only punks have where it’s somehow uncool to become a better songwriter. In no other musical genre are your fans going to drop you when you start progressing. That would be like parents being disappointed in their child for graduating from kindergarten to the first grade. Paradise is the best songwriting we have ever done, and I expect the next record to be the same. I have no interest in staying in kindergarten.”Mish Barber-Way, in conversation with Annie Clark.

HIGHER AUTHORITIES ANNOUNCE DEBUT ALBUM NEPTUNE, SHARE NEW SONG 'COLOUR'

Higher Authorities | 02/10/16

Image: Higher Authorities press photo

Shadowy, psychedelic adventurers, Higher Authorities, are happy to announce their forthcoming debut album, Neptune, for April 20, 2016. Listen to debut track, ‘Colour,’ below now.

Neptune, a collection of warped psychedelic dub and electronic explorations will be available on CD & digitally on April 20, 2016. The release date – 4/20, a day of huge significance in cannabis culture – is no coincidence. Neptune is proper head music, an old-fashioned headphones album where the devil is in the lo-fi details.

Produced by the Higher Authorities, the album was augmented by legendary dub producer Adrian Sherwood, who brought his mad box of sound effects to proceedings.

For Higher Authorities, visual identity is important. There is symbolism at work here, the pineapples on the album artwork possibly refer to Liverpool's wealthy merchant's houses who had pineapples on the gateposts. One of the pineapples is smoking, it all ties in. 

‘Colour’ is the first single the duo has shared from the album, and the first window into their cosmic world. 

-----

Neptuneis available to pre-order now on CD from Domino Mart and digitally from iTunes.

Track listing:

  1. Another time, Another place         
  2. Twilight (in luminous lodge)         
  3. Colour                                                               
  4. ...and why not?                                
  5. The Clone                                         
  6. If                                                         
  7. Monocle Man                                   
  8. Abracadabra                                    
  9. Decades                                           
  10. Neptune

THE RANGE ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM POTENTIAL, LISTEN TO "FLORIDA" AND WATCH ALBUM TRAILER

The Range | 01/20/16

Image: The Range photo by Alexandra Gavillet

We're happy to announce the Domino debut Potential from Brooklyn, NY-based musician James Hinton, aka The Range, out March 25, 2016.

The magic of Potential, following 2013’s Nonfiction - is as a document of its time. The Range has made an electronic record inspired by Baltimore club, early ‘00s grime and mid ‘00s electronica, but also as a member of the last generation that will remember going online for the first time. Listen to lead single “Florida” below.

As its backbone, Potential utilizes a series of vocal samples that Hinton found in the deep corners of YouTube, introducing us to unknown artists expressing themselves unfettered by the constraints of industry. He might be fascinated by the code that determines his YouTube searches, but what truly grips him are the human stories behind the samples. Hinton explains, “I found each person by using a small set of search terms on YouTube. Each song is inextricably linked to the point in time that I came across each video. I endeavored to tie the songs of Potential together by telling my own story alongside the stories of the people I sampled. Every song tries to acknowledge a sense of vulnerability or difficulty in life, as well as an intense drive to cope with problems in ways that don't drag you into the abyss.” 

In addition to the forthcoming album Potential, a documentary titled Superimpose, directed by Daniel Kaufman, out this spring, will look at the human stories behind the unknown artists included on the album. As Hinton states, “I am very conscious that these people who I have sampled elevate what I do, just as much as my record brings their work somewhere else.” Watch the documentary trailer below.

 

 

Potential will be available in CD, LP, deluxe double LP edition, and digital formats. The deluxe double LP edition, pictured above, is available to pre-order exclusively from the Domino Mart and includes a bonus 4 track Strings 12” EP and instant download of “Florida.” It will be limited to 1000 copies worldwide. 

The Range will be playing a handful of pre-release shows in March. Dates below, with more extensive touring to be announced soon.

The Range live dates:
03-01 Los Angeles, CA - Resident
03-09 London, UK - Pickle Factory

NIGHT MOVES ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM 'PENNIED DAYS', SHARE VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE 'DENISE, DON'T WANNA SEE YOU CRY'

Night Moves | 01/19/16

Image: Night Moves - photo credit Bryan Derballa

Minneapolis band Night Moves are pleased to announce their new album, Pennied Days, due for release on March 25, 2016 on Domino. The first single from the forthcoming album, ‘Denise, Don’t Wanna See You Cry’, is released today alongside a music video, directed by Anthony Sylvester (director of Shamir’s ‘In For The Kill’ and ‘On The Regular’ videos) and shot in upstate New York late last year. Watch the video below now.

Formed in 2009 in the Twin Cities, Night Moves is composed at its core of John Pelant and Micky Alfano. Friends since high school, their bond was solidified when Alfano lent Pelant his copy of George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass, a luminous classic of turn-the-page melancholy that echoes through Pennied Days. Over time, Pelant and Alfano broadened their scope to allow for a wide array of maverick influences, ranging from traditionalist heroes like Leon Russell and The Band to r’n’b originators Curtis Mayfield and Sly Stone to pre-punk experimentalists Suicide. (They also love Joe Walsh, like all free-thinking Americans.)

For Pennied Days, Pelant channeled both his disillusionment and his quiet resolve into a set of beautiful, melodic songs whose sunny surface obscures an inner darkness. Pennied Days might ultimately be as breezy and pleasurable as the records Pelant grew up loving, but that description belies the years of work the band put into making the album. 

“A lot of the songs are about trying to find yourself and what your future will look like and who you are – life overall,” Pelant says now — a seemingly simple statement about the most complicated of personal journeys. After releasing their 2012 debut, Colored Emotions — and touring with the likes of Father John Misty, Lord Huron, Django Django, and Poliça — Pelant set about recording demos for the follow-up. Originally, he planned on making another record quickly — Pelant is compulsively creative, writing loads of hooky pop songs in short bursts. (The band has few hobbies outside of music, beyond “drinking, wasting time talking about life, girls, and partying.”). But sessions for Pennied Days stretched far longer than anticipated, with the music veering from Flaming Lips-influenced doomsday dirges to the folky, laidback material the band were known for, and so eventually producer John Agnello was introduced to help steer things back on course, resulting in a 9 song collection of future folk-rock, paisley-tinged guitar licks, and even a piano jam or two. 

---------

Pre-order Pennied Days via iTunes HERE, or via the Domino Mart HERE. The deluxe LP - limited to 500 copies worldwide and available via the Dom Mart - comes in a single jacket with a printed inner sleeve, and includes a limited edition 10 inch with three bonus tracks.

YOUR FRIEND SHARES VIDEO FOR 'COME BACK FROM IT', DEBUT ALBUM "GUMPTION" OUT JANUARY 29TH

Your Friend | 01/14/16

Image: Your Friend - photo credit Crystal Lee Ferris

Taryn Miller, aka Your Friend, will release her debut album, Gumption, on January 29th via Domino. The second single from Gumption, “Come Back From It,” debuts today on Noisey with an accompanying video directed by Christophe Acker / Thatfilm and shot at the end of last year in Paris.

Says Miller, “We shot the footage on my last day in Paris, when I was there last November for Red Bull Music Academy, which was postponed following the awful events in November. It was freezing, and wild. He (the motorcycle driver) was weaving between highway traffic and at times, splitting the space between semis. It all came together at the very end of my trip, and was a really lovely way to leave after seeing what so many endured. There was this juxtaposition of the time that I arrived, and the night before I left. The streets were empty on my first day there, and it was exhilarating to be riding back into the city like that, and to have witnessed such resilience during such a dark time.” 

“Come Back From It,” was composed of salvaged pieces of an almost entirely scrapped song during Gumption’s demoing process. The whirling, dark, drum loop (arguably the backbone) and the crackling drone were the only original pieces of audio from the demo. Producer Nicolas Vernhes encouraged that there was something about the lurching nature of those elements that was worth pursuing. Miller already had a sense of verses, but there wasn’t a “relief,” as Vernhes said, when referring to a chorus. Vernhes sat her in the control room of Rare Book Room in Brooklyn and played Lou Reed’s “Pale Blue Eyes,” with the both of them in silence, then said, “You have thirty minutes, go write a chorus.” After the structure was formed, Miller took on the task of creating several, separate loops for each chord in the entire song, and Vernhes collaging them and achieving an overall cinematic type of texture.

“Come Back From It” follows the album opener and first single, “Heathering,” a brooding track Miller had been working on long before entering the studio. The opening acoustic guitar sample was something that Vernhes had caught before she knew they were tracking. It was left as somewhat of a playful placeholder initially, but then ultimately became an endearing and important part of the opening. 

Gumption deals with the dualities and nuances of human interaction, and questions how much we, as individuals, are responsible for in the ways we are perceived. It’s a record of courage, as its title suggests - of having the willingness to make necessary shifts, and to have a sense of self-awareness that ultimately leads to growth.

---

Gumption will be available on CD and standard LP via the Domino Mart. Pre-order the album from the Domino Mart HERE or iTunes HERE and receive an instant download of “Heathering.” The standard LP comes in a single jacket with a printed inner sleeve and is accompanied by a MP3 download card.

Preorder: Dom Mart / iTunes

PORCHES SHARE VIDEO FOR 'BE APART', ALBUM "POOL" OUT FEB 5

Porches | 01/12/16

Image: Porches - photo credit Jessica Lehrman

Porches’ new album Pool is out via Domino on February 5th, and ahead of its release, the band is pleased to share a video for its latest single, ‘Be Apart’. Premiered via Fader, ‘Be Apart’ can be viewed below now.

The video was directed by Daniel Brereton (Connan Mockasin, Django Django, Kindness, Metronomy) and was filmed outside London during a recent UK/EU tour. 

Says Maine on ‘Be Apart’:

“’Be Apart’ is sort of about moving to New York City and wanting to belong. It's about nightlife, about being taken away, losing control, longing for acceptance, and letting go. I imagine the music video portraying some sort of cult or family living in a mansion. The cult/mansion represent both what you might long to be a part of and also the sentiment of longing to be elsewhere, a part of what is outside.”

This video comes off the back of the previously released ‘Hour’ (watch HERE), which features Maine's partner and frequent collaborator, Greta Kline a.k.a Frankie Cosmos.

Next month marks the much-anticipated release of Pool, Porches’ debut full-length for Domino and a major step forward for Maine —as an evolving singer/songwriter, and as a nascent producer. Written and recorded almost entirely in his Manhattan apartment, and mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Tobias Jesso Jr) in Los Angeles, Pool was influenced, in part, by settling in the city as an artist and a person. Says Maine, “there was something special about recording this album in my new home. To be surrounded by the city and in my own world at the same time. I quickly became obsessed with the energy around me, and my experience of New York - I was forced to see my music in an entirely different context.  This was challenging, but also exciting, when the songs started to sound like a true reflection of what I was feeling in my new surroundings."

Pool is available to pre-order now on limited pressing clear vinyl, CD, and digital download. 

Pre-order: Dom Mart / Bandcamp / iTunes

Porches will be taking off on an extensive 2016 North American tour, starting March 9 in Washington, DC. The tour is a co-headline with label-mate Alex G, and will feature Your Friend, another fellow Domino artist, on support for all dates. Tickets to all shows are on sale now.

Image: Martin Courtney by Shawn Brackbill

After capping off 2015 with a sold-out album release show at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, we're excited to announce additional tour dates from Martin Courtney, in support of his debut solo album Many Moons. The shows will feature his full band - Jarvis Taveniere of Woods, Matt Kallman of Real Estate, Doug Keith and Aaron Neveu - and will be the first time fans in cities beyond New York experience the album live. 

The bright, lush, 10-song collection of soft psychedelia, which was previewed during a string of CMJ shows earlier this year, further cements the Real Estate songwriter’s talent for writing deceptively affecting songs – jangly, melancholic jams touching on themes of past and present, loss and love, home and the heart. Purchase it now on CD or LP from the Domino Mart, your fine local record store, or purchase / stream it from a digital retailer.

We're also happy to share two videos from Martin Courtney and his band. The first is a cover of Pavement’s "Major Leagues" recorded as part of a Sirius XMU session. Courtney and band recently recorded a live session for KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, watch a performance of "Airport Bar" below. Fast forward to 17 minutes into the stream to hear them cover Richard Hell's Time.

Speaking of radio, "Northern Highway" was recently featured in NPR Music's Heavy Rotation "10 Songs Public Radio Can't Stop Playing." Read more about it here. Special thanks to WFUV.

Watch the video for "Northern Highway" and listen back to "Airport Bar" and "Vestiges."

ANIMAL COLLECTIVE ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM 'PAINTING WITH'; LISTEN TO "FLORIDADA"

Animal Collective | 11/25/15

Image: Animal Collective Painting With press photo

Animal Collective is pleased to announce the release of their eleventh full-length album, Painting Withreleased on February 19. Today, the band share first single ‘FloriDada.’ Listen to it below.

For fifteen years Animal Collective has been rewriting the musical map, their line-up and aesthetic shifting with each astonishing release as they continue their pursuit of a new psychedelia. Their wild path has taken them from cramped concrete basement shows and forest floor singalongs to immersive installations at the Guggenheim and performances to millions on national television. So where to from here?

Dizzyingly upbeat and gloriously realized, the new album bounces and pops with an urgent, ecstatic energy, propelled by polyrhythmic beats and gurgling modular synth, with Noah Lennox and Dave Portner’s vocals gleefully falling in and out of syncopation and off-kilter harmony. 

Working as a trio, Portner (Avey Tare), Lennox (Panda Bear) and Brian Weitz (Geologist) began trading demos in early 2015, pursuing a goal of what Portner calls “really short songs: no B.S, get in, get out material…” The three met in Asheville during that spring and began exploring the songs together. Recording took place in the legendary EastWest Studios in Hollywood, home to sessions by The Beach Boys and Marvin Gaye. The album features contributions from John Cale and Colin Stetson, and was engineered by Sonny DiPerri.

The result: Painting With. Warm and personal, kaleidoscopic and high definition, concerned with art (Cubism, Dadaism, and the distorted way those artists viewed the world) and the human experience, and the meeting of both - creating something elemental, joyous, and unmistakably Animal Collective. 

Painting With will be available in standard CD, LP, and a limited deluxe edition format. The album in CD and LP formats will be available in three different covers, featuring each Animal Collective member – Avey Tare, Geologist, and Panda Bear - as painted by Brian DeGraw and displayed below. The limited deluxe edition format exclusively available via the Animal Collective and Domino stores includes a choice of one of the three covers, 180 gram heavyweight vinyl, a zoetropic 12" turntable slipmat that animates when activated in part with a strobe light, and a bonus 7” featuring two exclusive non-album tracks mailed at a later date. All pre-orders, including from iTunes, come with an instant download of "FloriDada."

PORCHES ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM 'POOL', SHARES VIDEO FOR 'HOUR', ANNOUNCES 2016 CO-HEADLINE TOUR WITH ALEX G

Porches | 11/19/15

Image: Porches - press shot photo credit Paley Fairman

Porches, the recording project of New York-based Aaron Maine, today announces the new album, Pool, set for release on February 5, 2016, via Domino. Written and recorded in his Manhattan apartment, Pool is an elegantly drawn set of gorgeous, synth-driven pop songs, expanding on and re-articulating the melancholy we’ve come to know from previous single releases on Terrible (2014’s Prism), Birdtapes (2013’s Townie Blunt Guts) and Seagreen (2014’s Leather), and a full length on Exploding in Sound (2013’s Slow Dance In The Cosmos).

Additionally, Porches today shares a video for the current single ‘Hour’, which was released digitally on October 8. Directed by Alan Del Rio Ortiz (Blood Orange, Danny Brown, St. Vincent, Petite Noir), the video stars Maine and Kline as star-crossed lovers on a night excursion. Watch the video now below.

Says Del Rio Ortiz of the clip:

"I wanted to create a simple but hallucinogenic montage dealing with a love affair that no longer exists but would never vanish. On the surface we see a young couple driving around the city and sneaking into a swimming pool. However we also see nostalgic imagery that creates a feeling of loss and illustrates a severed relationship."

Pool is Porches’ debut full-length for Domino and a major step forward for Maine —as an evolving singer/songwriter, and as a nascent producer. Written and recorded almost entirely in the Manhattan apartment he shares with his partner and collaborator, Greta Kline a.k.a Frankie Cosmos, and mixed by Chris Coady (Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Tobias Jesso Jr) in Los Angeles, Pool was influenced, in part, by settling in the city as an artist and a person. “I’m feeling like I’m in a more permanent situation than I’ve been in before,” he says. “There is something special about recording at home. It’s why it sounds the way it does. Being able to obsess over it on your own time and being in your own little cube knowing you’re surrounded by the city, being able to go so deep into it and to spend hours building it, loving it: all of that allowed me to reflect and focus on things a little closer.”

Pool is available to pre-order now on limited pressing coke bottle clear vinyl, CD, and digital download.

Pre-order: Dom Mart / iTunes

YOUR FRIEND ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM 'GUMPTION', OUT JANUARY 29TH; SHARES NEW SONG "HEATHERING"

Your Friend | 11/12/15

Image: Your Friend launch shot

Taryn Miller, aka Your Friend, is today pleased to share the first taste of new music since last year’s debut EP, in the form of new song ‘Heathering’.

The brooding, elegantly haunted track marks a new chapter in Miller’s career – one that will be fully revealed with the release of her debut full-length, titled Gumption, on January 29, 2016 via Domino.

 

The release of ‘Heathering’ comes just ahead of Miller’s participation in the Red Bull Music Academy in Paris, during which she will participate in the Cosmorama event, to be held next Tuesday, November 17, alongside like-minded artists sitting at the musical intersection of lush electronica and indie-inflected pop music.

Since the release of her debut self-recorded EP, Jekyll/Hyde, in early 2014, Taryn Miller has experienced many firsts as an artist – her first tour (with Courtney Barnett), her first SXSW (in 2014, in support of the EP release), and her first time working in a proper studio with a producer. And now, the 24-year-old who resides in Lawrence, Kansas and makes music under the moniker Your Friend, begins the process of another first – the release of her debut full length album, Gumption.

Miller began writing the songs that would become Gumption at her studio space and apartment in Lawrence, Kansas after returning from touring in mid-2014. As a part of the album’s process, Miller acquired a field recorder that she used to explore sound from a familiar place. She took it to her family farm in Dexter, KS and drove around, dipping her senses into childhood nostalgia.

From there, she started recording with producer Nicolas Vernhes (The War on Drugs, Deerhunter) at the Rare Book Room in Brooklyn, which helped Your Friend fulfill a penchant for drones, loops and found sounds. “I paid attention to textures,” Miller says. “I was trying to remove myself from an approach that I had followed before, but still wanted to bring in that melodic element that is most inherent to me, and marry it with a more sonically meditative landscape.”

Gumption deals with the dualities and nuances of human interaction, and questions how much we, as individuals, are responsible for in the ways we are perceived. It’s a record of courage, as its title suggests - of having the willingness to make necessary shifts, and to have a sense of self-awareness that ultimately leads to growth.

Gumption will be available on CD and standard LP via the Domino Mart. Pre-order the album from the Domino Mart HERE or iTunes HERE and receive an instant download of ‘Heathering’. The standard LP comes in a single jacket with a printed inner sleeve and is accompanied by a MP3 download card.

Preorder: Dom Mart / iTunes

GUMPTION TRACKLIST:

1. Heathering

2. Come Back From It

3. To Live With

4. Desired Things

5. Nothing Moved

6. Gumption

7. I Turned In

Your Friend has a handful of European dates on the horizon, and will be on tour in the US in early 2016. Stay tuned for all news and updates via the new Your Friend website HERE.

BLOOD ORANGE RELEASES NEW SONG 'SANDRA'S SMILE'; ANNOUNCES SHOW AT HARLEM'S APOLLO THEATER

Blood Orange | 10/26/15

Image: Blood Orange_Apollo Show Announce


Blood Orange – aka Devonté Hynes – today releases a new song, titled ‘Sandra’s Smile’, accompanied by a video shot last week in New York. Directed and edited by Hynes himself, and featuring cameos from Junglepussy, Ian Isiah, and Waffle Crew, the ‘Sandra’s Smile’ video can be seen HERE.


Blood Orange will perform his first U.S. show of 2015 on December 12, 2015 when he returns to the stage at Harlem’s World Famous Apollo Theater in NYC alongside a cast of friends and collaborators.

The show at Harlem’s World Famous Apollo Theater will feature not only music from Hynes’ critically acclaimed first two albums under the Blood Orange moniker, but will also include the live debut of brand new Blood Orange material.

All proceeds from the show will benefit the Opus 118 Harlem School of Music, a program that transforms the lives of their students and families through access to quality music education both in-school and after-school.

Says Hynes, “Playing music saved my life; if it wasn't for the chance to play cello or piano when I was a kid growing up in Essex, I shudder to think where I'd be right now. At this point in my life, all that matters to me is giving back to communities and making people happy, so I have decided to put on a fun night of performances at the legendary Apollo Theatre in Harlem that is hopefully affordable to all, with all proceeds going to the Opus 118 Harlem School of Music.  New York City, let's have some fun!"

Baltimore-based musician Dan Deacon has announced upcoming tour dates with Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz. Deacon will open for the band  in Chicago, Detroit, Washington, D.C., Boston, New York City and Philadelphia.

I think it's safe to say without any doubt that the experience of touring with Miley and everyone. It will be one of the most reality curving events of my career thus far. Mostly I'm really looking forward to introducing my music and performance to the 'smilers' and to watch this show unfold each night."

CASS MCCOMBS TO RELEASE A FOLK SET APART: RARITIES, B-SIDES & SPACE JUNK, OUT DECEMBER 11TH

December 11th marks the release of A Folk Set Apart: Rarities, B-Sides & Space Junk, Etc., an alternate retelling of the last decade in the life of extraordinary songwriter Cass McCombs.

Comprising songs from 2003-2014, the album showcases McCombs’ thematic and emotional diversity. A black mirror to his catalogue, there are varying moments of reflection, madness, and dark humor. Also of politics - “Bradley Manning,” which debuted on Democracy Now, is a modern folk ballad of the convicted Army whistleblower, and directly quotes Manning’s own Facebook posts. McCombs has a unique ability to stitch together ancient techniques with our current primitive mind.

For all their differences, this collection of songs reveals the artist as navigator of avoidance. They have been unearthed from the so-called underground - culled from the various limited, rare sources from which they were initially released on different independent labels on both sides of the pond, now compiled by Domino. For the past decade, most of these have been next to impossible to find, and for the first time are now readily available. Many were first unveiled as split 7”s, only sold at shows, whose artist pairings are as diverse as McCombs’ own musical tendencies: e.g. Meat Puppets (“Evangeline,” “Night of the World”), Michael Hurley (“Three Men Sitting On A Hollow Log”) and White Magic (“If You Loved Me Before”).

McCombs is a perennial favorite of many acclaimed musicians - as evidenced by the broad range of guests who appear on the tracks: Mike Gordon (Phish) co-wrote and lent his unmistakable vocal to the bizarre experiment, “Texas”; PREfection-era drummer, Tim Dewit aka Dutch E. Germ (Gang Gang Dance) on “A.Y.D.”; drummer Joe Russo (Furthur) on “Evangeline” and “Night Of The World”; Chris Cohen (Deerhoof) plays guitar on “Poet’s Day” and “An Other”; Tim Cedar (from noise/punk band Ligament) drums on “Twins”; among many other anti-heroes from the musical underground, proving community defies classification.

Parallel universes obviously exist, but where are they before we experience them? The occult world stalks us until the final coup-de-gras. But McCombs is not a mystic but a brutal realist, exposing himself warts and all, in the punk tradition.

These songs will both satiate and perplex those already familiar with McCombs, while compelling and rewarding new listeners, pointing a way towards his back catalog. It’s a glimpse behind the studio curtain at one of the greatest songwriters of the 21st Century. True trash esoterica.

A Folk Set Apart includes 19 songs (19 on CD, 11 on LP + 8 digital bonus tracks) all remastered for this release. Five of these songs are previously unreleased. The LP is a single vinyl in a gatefold jacket, which includes a printed inner sleeve and an MP3 download card.

Pre-order via Dom Mart or iTunes.

McCombs will be playing a string of US dates in the coming weeks. October sees him open for Kurt Vile on the West Coast, and November he’ll be opening for My Morning Jacket on one night of their four-night run at New York’s famed Beacon Theatre. Details below.
