One True Pairing
One True Pairing

Following lead singer Hayden Thorpe’s first solo effort Diviner earlier this year, now it’s the turn of co-vocalist Tom Fleming to make a musical statement following the split of Wild Beasts in 2018. A self-titled offering under the name One True Pairing, it’s radically different to most of what you’d associate with Fleming, full of dissonant guitars and political soul-searching that he describes as “neo-heartland rock”. 

Blood Orange
Angel's Pulse

Oh hear he is again. He gets where water won't....and stop sprawling on the sleeve. Sit up straight man. Maybe he has good reason to be tired as this mixtape release comes just months after his previous album proper Negro Swan. So it's being marketed as a mixtape rather than an album which seems to mean that it is an addendum of sorts to his last record - a series of sketches and ideas made in the months since. There's guests such as Toro Y Moi and Porches helping out.

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
I Made A Place

Ooh it's been a long while since a fully original Bonnie 'Prince' Billy album. The last one was in the middle of the Obama presidency in fact - and to think people had the wherewithal to moan about that tenancy. Now, just as the world is ending we get a proper new BPB album because he realises that there is never a right time for a new album from one of the more loved artists of his generation. Let's just celebrate him whilst he is alive and healthy.

(Sandy) Alex G
House of Sugar

He just gets better and better. From lo-fi beginnings (Sandy) Alex G has slowly but surely emerged as one of the best songwriters of his generation. 2017's superb Rocket added a fascinating experimental bent to his songs and was a multi-faceted unpredictable riot of sound. Early indications for House of Sugar are of further warm country-tinged songs with nods towards Elliott Smith and Lou Barlow but complete as always with Alex G's wistful, autumnal melancholy. 

Arctic Monkeys
Whatever People Say I Am

Debut album from Los Angeles' neé Sheffield's finest from back when they were four scrappy kids with big fringes, before the smart shirts and slicked back hair. Even now the young Alex Turner's lyrics are genuinely impressive in how vivid a vision of the People's Republic of South Yorkshire they can create. 

Bill Ryder-Jones
Yawny Yawn

Bill Ryder-Jones’ 2018 LP Yawn was a fine set of epic ballads in that sort of Richard Hawley/Bill Callahan/Elbow tradition. On Yawny Yawn we find the former member of The Coral stripping back the tunes of Yawn to the bare essentials - just piano, voice and a few wisps of ambient electronics. This tender treatment allows the stark beauty of Ryder-Jones’ music to come into even sharper focus.

Fat White Family
Serfs Up!

Oh lord they are back. "The most gratifying and unexpected creative volte face in recent musical history!" screams the press release. The first track released from the sessions 'Feet' spends its time begging to differ as it just sounds like Fat White Family. But why let actual music get in the way of a hyped press release and their usual flirting with dodgy imagery. It's certainly something that never stopped Fat White Family before so in that respect it's same as it ever was. We'll reserve further judgement til we've heard the whole thing maybe.  

Arctic Monkeys
When The Sun Goes Down

Sensibly, Domino have been quietly re-pressing some of the Arctic Monkeys early singles for all you AM nuts out there. When the Sun Goes Down was the second single to be taken from their legendary debut album Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not. A tale of prostitution in their hometown of Sheffield, it's an early example of Alex Turner's unique lyrical prowess. On 7" backed with Stickin' To The Floor. 

Arctic Monkeys
The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala

The oddly titled The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala was a track taken from Arctic Monkeys fourth album Suck It and See. It's a melodic treat of a song on an album that has sometimes been accused of being too hard edged. Lots of lyrical twists and turns and stadium-ready rock here. The only downside is that the B side features Miles Kane. 

Arctic Monkeys
Black Treacle

I don't even remember this Arctic Monkeys song. Probably because it was the fourth single taken from their fourth album Suck it and See. My loss though as it's a lovely track not dissimilar from Cornerstone. Fans of all things Sheffield will be pleased to see Richard Hawley turn up on B side You and I. 7" re-press on Domino. 

Arctic Monkeys
Suck It And See

7” vinyl re-issue of ‘Suck It And See’, the title track and third single taken from Arctic Monkeys’ 2011 album of the same name. Unusually, its awesome B-side ‘Evil Twin’ performed better in the UK charts than the main feature, reaching no.114 in comparison to ‘Suck It And See’ at no.149.

  • Domino

Arctic Monkeys
Brianstorm

Brianstorm  - see what they did there? This was the first single to be taken from Arctic Monkeys second album Favourite Worst Nightmare and was early proof that their debut was no flash in the pan. It's a familiar storming racket with Alex Turner's dextrous, humorous lyrics atop swirling guitars and clattering drums. That rascal himself Dizzee Rascal turns up on the B side for an unlikely collaboration.   

The Last Shadow Puppets
Dream Synopsis

Comprised of Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys), Miles Kane, Zach Dawes and James Ford (Simian Mobile Disco), The Last Shadow Puppets are a modern day supergroup. In December 2016 the quartet bring us a six-track golden nugget in The Dream Synopsis (recorded in just one day) - which offers fresh twists on album favourites, covers and unreleased cuts.

Nérija
Blume

Domino's turn to get a slice of the 2019 London jazz scene pie. Nérija feature the already legendary saxophonist Nubya Garcia along side an ensemble of six other musicians. Blume, their debut album, is an incredibly vibrant and lovely work, that gets close to capturing how captivating the band are in the flesh. 

Arctic Monkeys
Fluorescent Adolescent

A high water mark of their second album, Favourite Worst Nightmare, Fluorescent Adolescent is one of the Arctic Monkeys most enduring and best known tunes. It's a good example of how they married Alex Turner's kitchen sink narratives to stadium singalong-ready but uniquely melodic guitar pop. Re-press on Domino backed with The Bakery  

Robert Wyatt
Shleep

There are many musicians who I wish would retire but one of them isn't Robert Wyatt.  Therefore it's a real shame that he is to make no more music. Instead let's be grateful that there is a large back catalogue to trawl through. 'Shleep' is his 1997 album which at that point was his first in six years. As always it's a glorious and eccentric work. He's one of the few people who can have Paul Weller guesting and yet it still doesn't put you off.  

Arctic Monkeys
I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor

This is where it all started in earnest for Arctic Monkeys with their now legendary debut single on which they matched a literate Northern cheeky chappy delivery with muscular guitar rock and came out with an instant classic. Still possibly their best known song it has now been re-issued onto 7" vinyl with original B side Bigger Boys and Stolen Sweethearts.  

Animal Collective
Strawberry Jam

Strawberry Jam was the one before the big one for Animal Collective and although the subsequent Merriweather Post Pavillion album now tends to dominate the rest of their catalogue, Strawberry Jam is not without its charms. It sees the band moving further away from their weird folk roots towards more of a weird pop mainstream.  Ideas galore as usual some good, some not so but on tracks like opener Peacebone the band seemed to achieve the mixture of the catchy and the experimental that they'd spend a decade searching for.   

Arctic Monkeys
Crying Lightning

Domino continue their series reissuing Arctic Monkeys original singles. Crying Lightning was the first single from their Humbug album and shows Alex Turner's always entertaining lyrical journeys being backed by some muscular guitar rock aided and abetted by producer Josh Homme. The vinyl features the original B side  - a version of Nick Cave's Red Right Hand.

Georgia
About Work The Dancefloor

About Work The Dancefloor by Georgia is euphoric electro-pop that defines the ecstacy of dancing the night, and the early morning, away. It mirrors Georgia’s own experiences with club culture and showcases her ability to blend her influences into a concise dancefloor banger. Includes a remix by The Black Madonna. On Domino.

Georgia
Started Out

Georgia is a woman who makes electronic music. Started Out shows the influence of the Chicago house scene of the ‘80s and ‘90s on her music. She used a bunch of kit that the likes of Frankie Knuckles and Mr. Fingers used - 909 drum machines, analogue synths and the like. This 12” includes a remix by Tuff City Kids. On Domino.

Arctic Monkeys
Teddy Picker

More Arctic Monkeys re-presses with a new 7" pressing of Teddy Picker, initially released as the third single off their second album Favourite Worst Nightmare. It's long since been on of the bands signature songs still getting reeled out in concert to this day. Get it on a nice fresh 7" backed with Bad Woman. 

Arctic Monkeys
My Propeller

My Propeller was initially taken from the Arctic Monkeys third album Humbug. It showcases the darker sound of the album as the Sheffield scamps started to grow up and explore more mature territories. What it lacks in tunefulness it makes up in a kind of brooding intensity. 7" re-press on Domino with Joining the Dots on t'other side. 

Fat White Family
Tastes Good With The Money

'It Tastes Good With The Money' is one of the best songs from the Fat White Family's third LP, 'Serfs Up', and probably one of the best things they've ever released. It's a glam-infused romp that takes in Gregorian chants (well... kinda...) and a killer spoken word piece from Baxter Dury, Domino are releasing it as a 10" with some exclusive non-album tracks, 'Waterfall' and 'Blue Hands'.

Arctic Monkeys
Cornerstone

Probably the only Arctic Monkeys song to regularly make me cry (in a good way that is). A wonderful slice of kitchen sink drama that should silence any remaining Alex Turner naysayers. Their best tune yet and you can hear the Richard Hawley influence snaking through the golden Sheffield afternoon.   "And I elongated my lift home, Yeah I let him go the long way round, I smelt your scent on the seat belt, And kept my shortcuts to myself".    

Von Sudenfed
Tromatic Reflexxions

Amazing that this ever happened but now that (presumably) there'll be no more music to come from the Fall then it's well worth revisiting this collaboration between ace ranter Mark E Smith and Mouse on Mars. Full of dancefloor-ready bloops and Smith's free associating lyrics, this is a unique and vital collaboration.

Bonnie Prince Billy
Master and Everyone

Master and Everyone was one of Will Oldham's most beautiful albums. It pared his particular brand of folk music back to basics and has a hushed, intimate feel that allows the listener to be able to peer into his deepest thoughts. It clocks in and just over half an hour but its delicate, pastoral songs are such a beautiful sigh that it hits harder than much of his more realised work. 

Protomartyr
Relatives In Descent

The first for Domino from unique Detroit post-punkers Protomatyr and their fourth in total. This follows on from the divisive 'The Agent Intellect' but from the sounds of lead track 'A Private Understanding' this is music everyone can enjoy.  Prime thought provoking complex guitar rock with nods towards Ought and Sonic Youth. 

Porches
Pool

Songs about settling down always worry me. It's can't be easy to find inspiration about a trip to IKEA to get a new bedside cabinet. However, settling is apparently what this album is about. On initial listen it's soothing and melancholy electronic pop with very pretty vocal harmonies. Sounds pretty lovely actually. Limited coke bottle colour spot gloss sleeve for Indies only.    

Buzzcocks
Another Music In A Different Kitchen

The debut album by vitally important UK punks The Buzzcocks, reissued. Another Music in a Different Kitchen tears straight through 11 songs, immediately establishing that this was a band to get excited about upon original release in 1978. Now livingly restored and remastered from the original tapes. Even more exciting than that is that it comes with a carrier bag.   
  • Label(s):
  • Domino

Buzzcocks
Love Bites

Love Bites was the second album by melodic Manc punks The Buzzcocks. It was originally released in September 1978, not quite 6 months after their classic debut Another Music In A Different Kitchen. Contains the single 'Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve)'. LP and CD, remastered from original tapes on Domino. 
  • Label(s):
  • Domino

Pavement
Slanted & Enchanted

This was the Pavement I liked. A sloppy sprawling lo-fi charm fest taking heavy influence from the Velvet Underground and the Fall but stumbling blinking in the sun with classic melodies glinting through the fuzzy production and madcap drumming. On top of that add Malkmus wordplay and you get an eternal classic.

King Creosote
Kenny and Beth's Musakal Boat Rides

Kenny And Beth’s Musikal Boat Rides was the album where Domino Records got involved with King Creosote. The Scottish singer/songwriter and Fence Collective founder also known as Kenny Anderson, had been prolific on his own Fence label prior to this. It was originally released in 2003 and contains songs written over a number of years. Heavyweight vinyl LP on Domino.

Panda Bear
A Day With The Homies

We now have a reason for why Noah Lennox sat out Animal Collective’s Meeting of the Waters EP that came out midway through 2017 - he was finishing off his first solo release since 2015. This limited-edish 12” sees Lennox retreating into the deeper frequencies, combining his trademark Panda Bear-iness with freeform experimentations and non-linear song structures.

Fat White Family
Feet

Beloved by their fans and derided by doubters, the ever-divisive Fat White Family take their bow on Domino Records for forthcoming third album Serfs Up!, due for release later in 2019. With an emphasis on rhythm and mood, 'Feet' is its lead-off single, which represents a bit of the change in the bands style up to and including auto-tune.

Hot Chip
A Bath Full of Ecstasy

How nice of them. Hot Chip got lots of pleasure from making this latest album of theirs and they want to pass that joy onto the listener. Some may say that it would have been even nicer of them to keep it to themselves. That said if they bring some joy into some peoples world who are we to argue. Expect joyful dance pop led by a tiny voice.   

Night Moves
Can You Really Find Me

Minneapolis duo, Night Moves, were likened to The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev and Band of Horses when they hit town with their debut album Colored Emotions back in 2012. Their music was based on classic American pop and rock - Beach Boys, Fleetwood Mac, Todd Rundgren - and twisted to make new cosmic shapes. Can You Really Find Me is their fourth album and finds them maturing. They’ve still got the hooks and the riffs, but now there’s an added emotional quality too.

Young Marble Giants
Colossal Youth

Young Marble Giants made just one album but it was a solid gold classic. Colossal Youth pretty much invented the fact that you could play songs slow and quietly with minimal instrumentation. It's a brilliant patchwork on clicking drum machines, ticking guitars and comical organs. Topped off of course by Alison Statton's remarkable voice. 

Arctic Monkeys
Suck It And See


Peter Perrett
Humanworld

Permanently sunglassed former the Only Ones frontman Peter Perrett had not been seen for many years before he returned with 2017s  How The West Was Won and now he's back again with Humanworld which as with his previous record was recorded with the help of his two sons Jamie and Peter Jr. Truly the renaissance man of post punk. 

Buzzcocks
A Different Kind Of Tension

A Different Kind Of Tension was the third album by legendary Manchester punk band Buzzcocks. It was originally released in 1979. In recent times reviews by magazines such as Rolling Stone and Uncut have suggested that this is the best of their first three albums, which is making quite a statement! Reissue LP and CD on Domino.

Buzzcocks
Singles Going Steady

Singles Going Steady was originally compiled to introduce The Buzzcocks to the US. As time has passed its assumed a life as their 'best of' or 'greatest hits'. However you want to refer to it, it is a truly marvellous collection of songs by and incredible band. Reissue LP, with 8 page booklet, and CD, with 36 page booklet, on Domino.

Arlo Day
Bad Timing

Then I look at you, and the world's alright with me. Just one look at you, and I know it's gonna be *deep breath* an Arlo Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaay (Arlo Day, Arlo Day, Arlo Day, Arlo Day…) Day’s debut (more like DAY-but, eh ladies and gentlemen?) EP contains none of the positive vibes of the old William Withers’ tune. Bad Timing is, in fact, a set of regret-filled bedroom indie in the vein of King Krule and Angel Olsen. Sorry for misleading you. It’s good, though!

Hood
Cold House

One of the best albums of the 2000s. The hitherto lo-fi (ish) Leeds collective had already been straying into more drifty pastoral areas when, pretty much out of the blue, came this album in which modernist electronics collided with melancholic song craft and leftfield hip-hop courtesy of cLOUDDEAD who appear on three tracks. An absolute favourite in these parts.

Hayden Thorpe
Diviner

It was commendable that the Wild Beasts split up when they did but the concern is...what will happen to the other two? The singers should be ok. I assume the low-voiced one will make a solo album in time but first out the blocks is the high-voiced one also known as Hayden Thorpe. His voice is so distinctive that it's going to sound like the Wild Beasts but a listen to early tracks reveals a soft sophistication and haunted balladry.      

Clinic
Wheeltappers and Shunters

I didn’t think Clinic were ever coming back, fortunately they have. Wheeltappers and Shunters is the Liverpool band’s eighth album but first for seven years. The title is taken from a 1970s variety show hosted by Bernard Manning - but don’t worry, it’s an inside joke, they’re not a bunch of ignorant bigots. On Domino.

Alex Turner
Submarine (Original Songs)

Submarine was the debut film from actor and director Richard Ayoade. The coming of age drama was a perfect vehicle for a soundtrack by Arctic Monkeys Alex Turner. Showcasing a more mature and reflective side to his songwriting, these six mostly acoustic offerings point the way towards his future work as part of the Last Shadow Puppets. As always lyrically dextrous, this is an overlooked but essential part of his back catalogue. 

Beth Gibbons & The Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra
Henryk Górecki: Symphony No. 3 (Symphony Of Sorrowful Songs)

Been wondering what Gibbons has been up to? Well nothing we can tell you from the last four years but in 2014 she performed Henryk Górecki: Symphony No. 3 (Symphony Of Sorrowful Songs) alongside the Polish National Radio Symphony conducted by Krzysztof Penderecki one of Poland's leading composers. Now several years later you can get the whole performance on audio and with the special LP version and the CD you get a visual DVD.    

Protomartyr
No Passion All Technique

In a music industry where nothing is secret and even less is sacred, Protomartyr’s debut LP No Passion All Technique has long been a refreshing anomaly. Obviously the group are very big now, but no-one knew this back in 2012 - not them, not us, and certainly not the Urinal Cake label who released this record. A tiny run sold out, and the thing’s been neither re-pressed nor available on streaming services at any point since. This Domino reissue allows you to experience No Passion All Technique without paying megabucks for it on the vinyl black market. It’s a damn sight more raggedy than the band’s subsequent work, but the idiosyncrasies of No Passion All Technique work in its favour. Come and see how the post-punk band we deserve ended up like this.

Four Tet (Fourtet)
Rounds

Ten years since the original release, Domino reissue Four Tet's Rounds on CD and vinyl. This masterwork of leftfield beats, sampling and melodic sound construction came at a pivotal point in Four Tet's journey to fame. On the reissue the album comes with a bonus live recording of a performance in Copenhagen.

The Clang Group
We Do Wie Du

Nothing warms the cockles of our hearts more than someone saying ‘Monks cover versions’ - and so it is with the legendary proto-post-punk act The Clang Group, who return with a one-off 7” single for Domino of the cult heroes’ ‘We Do Wie Du’, after their 2016 album Practice.

Animal Collective
Merriweather Post Pavilion

One of the Animals discovered that it sounds pretty darned rad if you play two or three Beach Boys songs at once. He told the rest of the Collective and, lo, t’was the birth of Merriweather Post Pavilion, and yea, it did dominate anno 2009 most ruthlessly. Precisely like the little green things on the front cover, the contents of Animal Collective’s eighth album are continuously lurching to and fro no matter what you do. Hang on tight!

Rustin Man
Drift Code

Oh Talk Talk where art thou? With Mark Hollis last seen in the early 2000s trying to learn the clarinet this most brilliant and influential bands has been on hold. However not all is lost. Bassist Paul Webb aka Rustin Man is back with a new LP. His previous one was in collaboration with Portishead's Beth Gibbons. Here he goes it alone.  

Nérija
Nérija EP

Domino grab a piece of the London jazz action by signing up group Nérija. The septet - which features celebrated young saxophonist Nubya Garcia, among others - showcase an energetic and soulful sound on this eponymous debut EP. Cuts like ‘The Fisherman’ and ‘Valleys’ are reminiscent of Tony Allen’s recent Blue Note output. Elsewhere on Nérija the band show their range with ‘For You’, a number that swells from bluesy ballad to a free-noise climax ala John Coltrane.

Avey Tare
Cows On Hourglass Pond

Clearly unwilling to be upstaged by Panda Bear, Avey Tare is going toe to toe with his Animal Collective buddy by also releasing a solo LP in early 2019. As with Tare’s 2017 album Eucalyptus, Cows On Hourglass Pond finds him drawing once more on AnCo’s golden mid-period. There’s plenty of Feels and Sung Tongs to this, and that’s something we should always be grateful for.

Stephen Malkmus
Groove Denied

We've all had mid-life crisis moments. For example, my dad sold the family car and bought himself a motorbike. This album is most likely Stephen Malkmus's mid-life crisis moment. For many musicians a mid-life crisis moment sees them embracing electronica and IDM after years of chugging along with guitars. So this could be as good/bad as Bob Mould's 'Modulate' album.   

King Creosote
Astronaut Meets Appleman

A new sweeping solo record from King Creosote. A lot of the material on Astronaut Meets Appleman is quietly epic, with instrumental contributions from a range of talented players of a range of interesting instruments (e.g. bagpipes, harp, violin) all woven together into a potent whole. Out on Domino.

Panda Bear
Buoys

Escaped Animal Collective animal Panda Bear, known to his handlers as Noah Lennox, arrives at album six with Domino. An exercise “hyper-modern production” techniques with Person Pitch collaborator Rusty Santos, Buoys finds ol’ Pand subjecting his schtick of characteristically queasy crooners to mainstream studio pastiche. Smashing.

SASAMI
SASAMI

Debut album from SASAMI, the very exciting Los Angeles based indie rock songwriter. Written partly while on tour with Cherry Glazer, SASAMI's song are a painful but necessary look inward that everyone can learn from. Melodic but restrained, and with instrumentation that can veer between the more dreamy and the more rocky. On Domino. 

James Yorkston
The Route To The Harmonium

I love to think about James Yorkston's daily life  - tinkering around in his attic with his vintage instruments at his disposal, the distant sound of the sea just with in earshot. He recorded the whole of this new album in said space but later got in...guess who?...David Wrench to have a listen and make some suggestions. The result is a deeply personal treasure trove of songs exemplifying Yorkston at the peak of his craft.     

Buzzcocks
Time's Up

The Buzzcock’s legendary 1976 demos, now known as Time’s Up and originally only available as bootlegs, capture all the shambling, deadpan and violent joys of punk’s first wave. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the band’s first EP, Domino are bringing these joys back to heavyweight vinyl LP (with download code) and CD.

Will Oldham
Songs of Love and Horror

Will Oldham yet again mines his own back catalogue this time as solo singer songwriter armed with just voice and guitar. It will be interesting to hear how everything sits in such an intimate setting. The album has also been made as a companion piece to a book of his lyrics which is about to be published. And as a plus point you get a nice picture of him with a dog on the cover. Woof woof!

Julia Holter
Aviary

It may well be difficult to think of a record more expansive than Julia Holter's 2015 opus 'Have You In My Wilderness' but it seems like 'Aviary' might just do it. This 15 song record explores the feeling of cacophony we feel on living in the modern world and a search for solitude and sweetness. Holter's theatrical vocals and cinematic synth work will hopefully find us all a solution.   

Bill Ryder-Jones
Yawn

Former The Coral bloke Bill Ryder-Jones drops his latest solo effort via Domino. Yawn is another record of furrowed-brow indie-rock from a man who always has a lot on his mind. The often-lengthy runtimes - most of the ten tracks here are over five-minutes - give Ryder-Jones the space for slow builds and thoughtful meditations on life. Musically the LP is frequently reminiscent of Elbow, Idlewild and Frightened Rabbit.

John Cale
Music For A New Society/M:FANS

An interesting move here from John Cale, who is simultaneously re-releasing and re-interpreting his 1982 album Music For A New Society. The new version, M:FANS, is unlikely to be confused with the original, as it is laden with very modern electronic production, often coming through as a weird kind of R&B. This 2CD release has both versions. On Domino.

How To Dress Well
The Anteroom

We all can laugh now at how much I hated the last How to Dress Well album but maybe Tom Krell hated it too as he's followed it up with one long piece of psychedelic music that taps into the long forgotten experimental core of his band. This could be the best or worst thing you hear all year but at least he's left that boyband stuff back in 2016.    

Cat Power
Wanderer

Cat Power celebrates the great blues tradition of transience on her first album in six years Wanderer. It was written over the course of a couple years during which she toured, and travelled, and played. Folk and blues are fundamentally collaborative genres and Wanderer is no different, featuring old friends, and a tour mate in Lana Del Rey.

Hood
Rustic Houses, Forlorn Valleys

'Rustic Houses, Forlorn Valleys' was Hood's first album for Domino following on from their two earlier lo-fi albums for Slumberland. It announced a drastic departure in their sound from the previous inventive indie to a less noisy, more tranquil approach that haunted the edges of post-rock. These six lengthy songs spread over 40+ minutes are full of bucolic beauty and draw comparisons to Bark Psychosis, Talk Talk, Mogwai and Pygmalion-era Slowdive.

Hood
The Cycle of Days and Seasons

Hood's fourth full-length album and their second for Domino Records. This one sees them deconstructing their songwriting with a dub-inflected sound incorporating decaying tape loops, found samples and half-speed beats alongside their usual gentle guitars and hushed vocals. Co-produced by Matt Elliott (Third Eye Foundation) and Richard Formby (Ghostpoet, Wild Beasts), 'The Cycle of Days and Seasons' is a sonic collage of late-night post-rock and dub atmospheres.

Blood Orange
Negro Swan

Devonte Hynes has explored punk in his teens with Test Icicles, orchestral pop under the name of Lightspeed Champion, and as Blood Orange, perhaps his most successful and critically acclaimed project, he has made four albums underpinned by R’n’B and electronica. Negro Swan, his latest, explores depression - his own and other people's - along with the anxieties suffered by LGBT community and people of colour. LP and CD on Domino.

Jon Hopkins
Singularity

Singularity is the first Jon Hopkins record since his breakthrough opus Immunity and he has made it in such a way that you are meant to listen to it in one sitting. As a lot of music listeners have the attention span of a gnat this could prove a tricky request but sit yourself down, turn the internet off and enjoy it as Hopkins produces a suite of techno to ambience to choral music and everything in between.  

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks
Sparkle Hard

Here's renowned Pavementeer Stephen Malkmus with more indie rock verbosity. Sparkle Hard is his latest record as bandleader of the Jicks, and with its aggressively cheerful title, it's no surprise that he's found some peace writing from a place of joy. I'm sure there's some signature sad sighs in there, too, but it sounds like Malkmus is ready to have a good time.

Arctic Monkeys
Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino

The long-awaited return of those indie rock archetypes Arctic Monkeys. Five years after 2013’s AM, Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino is the next chapter in their journey from dishevelled Sheffield boys of the noughties to slick and swaggering Americanised rock gang. Or, how Alex Turner went from scruffy to professional. Available on transparent vinyl LP, on Domino.

Hookworms
Microshift

Leeds stalwarts Hookworms’ third studio album, available on CD and vinyl via Domino. After the banks of the River Aire broke in late 2015, the band’s studio was devastated. The repairs that took place over the course of the next year were only made possible by altruistic voluntary work and online donations. That community effort displayed in the face of tragedy is no doubt the source of a pertinent blend of euphoria and tension present on the record. A more synth heavy affair than previous efforts, MJ’s modular features much more prominently, and collaboration with local synth nut Richard Formby guarantee an interesting listen!!

John Cale
Music For A New Society

An interesting move here from John Cale, who is simultaneously re-releasing his 1982 album Music For A New Society and producing a wholly new version, M:FANS. This vinyl release of the original album includes an additional 3 bonus tracks that were previously unreleased. LP with download code on Domino.

Julia Holter
Have You In My Wilderness

‘Have You In My Wilderness’ is a collection of dreamy, atmospheric, intimate ballads textured with the imagery inspired by various literary references, exploring familiar themes such as love and human relationships in a way that is enigmatic and slightly unnerving. The record seems to be drawn from a more personal source than her first two releases.

Hot Chip
In Our Heads

Absurdly well-to-do quartet Hot Chip have been doing their floor-filling electronic disco pop thing for quite a long time now and despite the naysayers (hello!) have done pretty damn well with it. In Our Heads was their 2012 (it seems like only yesterday) album and is one of their best..confidently showcasing their inventive, infectious songwriting. Popular in both London and elsewhere if you haven't got on board their groove ridden Modeo hatch by now then here is a good place to start. 

The Feelies
Crazy Rhythms

New Jersey guitar practitioners the Feelies quietly made one of the best albums of the late 1970s with this now classic debut. It finds the band at their most jittery with stop start (crazy) rhythms and the superb twin guitar work of Glen Mercer and Bill Million. Later albums had a more pastoral, college rock feel but this is them at their earliest and most raw. If you like Talking Heads and Television then check this one out.
