GEORGE FITZGERALD ANNOUNCES 'FADING LOVE' FOR APRIL 28TH RELEASE; LISTEN TO "FULL CIRCLE"

02/25/15

Image: George Fitzgerald Album Announce Shot

Fading Love, the long-awaited debut album from Berlin-based, British-born DJ and producer George FitzGerald, will be out April 28 on Double Six/Domino. The first listen from the album comes in the form of ‘Full Circle’, available to stream now HERE.



‘Full Circle’ premiered earlier today on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show as the Hottest Record In The World, and is also now featured as an NPR ‘Songs We Love’. The track, featuring vocals from Boxed In frontman Oli Bayston, is about the unfulfilled promise of stagnant relationships, both romantic and idealistic, and is perfectly suited for both headphones and the club.  

Fading Love establishes an exciting new chapter for the acclaimed British producer, DJ, and ManMakeMusic label head, marking an expansion out from his blistering DJ sets across Europe and the UK, and into the realm of songwriter/producer peers such as Caribou, Four Tet, and Jon Hopkins. The two-time Radio 1 resident, and producer of Katy B’s ‘I Like You’, FitzGerald has accomplished a great deal for his 26 years, including tour dates with Disclosure, a recent Jon Hopkins remix (hear his ‘Open Eye Signal’ remix HERE), and a string of well-received club singles for labels Hotflush and Aus, in addition to his previous two releases on Double Six, “I Can Tell (By The Way You Move)” and “Magnetic”. 

Fading Love is an intriguingly textured debut album, touching on the more emotive and tactile spectrum of electronic music, while keeping one foot firmly planted on the dance floor. 

Fading Love will be available on CD, LP, and digitally. Pre-order the album through Dom Mart HERE and through iTunes HERE. All pre-orders come with an instant grat of ‘Full Circle’.

PATRICK WATSON ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM 'LOVE SONGS FOR ROBOTS'; OUT MAY 12TH

Patrick Watson | 02/24/15

Image: Patrick Watson Love Songs For Robots

Love Songs For Robots, the highly anticipated fifth record from Patrick Watson, will be released on May 12th via Domino. Love Songs For Robots is the follow up to Watson’s 2012 release Adventures In Your Own Backyard, which received widespread critical acclaim— Consequence of Sound calls it “Larger than life,” while Q Magazine hails “Sublime,” and Uncut adds “Confidently ambitious.”

Listen to the title track from the album below now. In addition, Watson just released a teaser for the album, which includes the track ‘In Circles,’ watch HERE.

The new music was recorded at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles and Pierre Marchand Studio in Montreal. Of the record, some of which was debuted at private concerts in small loft spaces, Watson explains,

“I started thinking about things in a very mechanical way. I found it interesting how we would use our senses to come up with an emotional reaction. As I get older you get to know yourself better and I realized that a lot of my emotional reactions were mechanical responses and that was hugely influential. I didn’t want to be a robot. But the reason why we are superior to computers is that we have emotions and I realized that emotions are mechanical so the only thing left between us and robots is curiosity and inspiration - and I don’t think you can program that into a computer. That’s definitely where I was at when I started writing the record.”

Raised and still living in Montreal, Watson has composed 15 scores for both film and television, including a trailer for The Walking Dead and Wim Wenders’ new 3D film Everything Will Be Fine, where he performed the songs ‘Cynical World’ (an original for the film) and ‘Lighthouse’. The recipient of Canada’s elite Polaris Music Prize in 2007, Watson composes, performs and records his albums with a full band that includes Joe Grass (guitars), Robbie Kuster (drums/percussion) and Mishka Stein (bass).

'Love Songs For Robots' Tracklisting
1. Love Songs for Robots
2. Good Morning Mr. Wolf
3. Bollywood
4. Hearts
5. Grace
6. In Circles
7. Turn Into The Noise
8. Alone In This World
9. Know That You Know
10. Places You Will Go

Love Songs For Robots is available for pre-order on iTunes with an instant download of the title track. The vinyl edition comes with an additional 7”, featuring a non-album track, and can be preordered along with the CD on the Domino Mart.

MATTHEW E. WHITE REVEALS VIDEO FOR "ROCK & ROLL IS COLD"; 'FRESH BLOOD' OUT MARCH 10

Matthew E. White | 02/17/15

Image: Fresh Blood

Bandleader and soul visionary Matthew E. White has shared a video for 'Rock & Roll Is Cold', the first full single from Fresh Blood, his new album for Domino, out March 10th. 

The beautifully shot clip follows Matthew as he traverses various semi-surreal terrains, ultimately embarking on a joyride to an exquisite banquet in a video that's as playful and charming as the tune itself.

Matthew says: "This video was about highlighting and making use of pre-existing beauty and grandeur. The images I wanted were John Ford's America - part Badlands, part Bonnie and Clyde.

To that end, I used a team in Salt Lake City known much more for shooting spectacular outdoor shots than any music videos. That was really fresh for me, not to mention extraordinarily physically challenging at times - but these guys are world traveling, mountain climbing pros and brought out the tremendous beauty of the landscape we shot in.

Not to mention the extraordinary beauty of my lady, Miss Merry George. Mirroring the family involvement of the Fresh Blood album cover (shot at my Grandma’s house in Alabama) the final scene of this was shot at my Aunt’s house. It’s nice to keep the family involved when you can."

Fresh Blood will be available on CD, vinyl, and via digital download. There is also a special edition of the album, which is a double LP gatefold heavyweight vinyl containing a bonus LP titled Fresh Blood: No Skin – a full length minimalist mix of the entire album, minus strings/horns or choir. You can pre-order Fresh Blood via iTunes or DomMart.

Bob Moses, the duo comprised of Jimmy Vallance and Tom Howie, release All In All, a collection of their previously released singles. The 11 songs on All In All encompass the duo’s output to date, combining their 2 previous EP releases on Scissor & Thread, and the recent A/B side on Domino, I Ain’t Gonna Be The First To Cry / Grace

The band have also shared the video for single ‘I Ain’t Gonna Be The First To Cry’. Directed by Gene Doe, the video is an evocatively filmed meditation on youth and beauty, and can be watched below. The ethereal, dreamlike quality of the video is accentuated by the rarely used “slit scan” filming technique famously used in 2011: A Space Odyssey during the “star gate” sequence.

All In All is available via iTunes and Spotify now.

LISTEN TO DAN DEACON'S 'LEARNING TO RELAX'; SEE HIM ON HIS NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

Dan Deacon | 02/11/15

Image: DanDeaconannouncementFrankHamilton

Ahead of the release of his forthcoming album, Gliss Riffer, out February 24, 2015, Dan Deacon has shared 'Learning to Relax.' Listen to it below. It follows the release of the Andrew Jeffrey directed video for Gliss Riffer opening track 'Feel The Lightning.'

"Learning to Relax", a live favorite that took shape while being performed on the road last year in support of Arcade Fire, is yet another exploration of Deacon's newfound appreciation of tracks featuring predominate vocal melodies. It's one of the many songs on Gliss Riffer reveling in equal parts exuberant uncontained good times as well as dramatic flair. The same could be said for the "Learning to Relax" animation created by Alan Resnick, as described by the creator himself: "Two parallel columns of cubes are colored with complementary gradients. The cubes oscillate at faster and faster rates, which create the optical illusion of color mixing within elaborate visual patterns." 

Download the stems to “Learning to Relax” and ‘Feel the Lightning’ from Dan Deacon’s Soundcloud page

Deacon has also announced a North American April/May 2015 tour that will follow several sold out release week shows later this month in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. See a live stream of Deacon's set from Boiler Room in London next Tuesday, February 17th, at 2pm EST. More info here. All tour dates are listed below.
