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 st...view item »

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 p...view item »

Pram
Across The Meridian

Long-time coming, this one. After over a decade away, the ninth LP from Brummie oddballs Pram arrives via Domino. The groundwork for Across The Meridian was laid at sessions in Wales, and there is a thick seam of Welsh psychedelia that runs through the music here. Other obvious touchstones come from the...view item »

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. ...view item »

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 ...view item »

Galaxie 500
Today

Debut album of the short-lived dream pop band. Galaxie 500 are the kind of band whose mastery of texture and unrepentant slowness makes them an ideal salve for the mind. I don't know how hectic life is on a Tugboat, but if I was on one, I'd be content knowing this calming trio were at the helm. ...view item »

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 sprea...view item »

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 Foundatio...view item »

Villagers
The Art of Pretending to Swim

The return of ol' wobble voice, Conor O' Brien has sat and made this latest Villagers record all by himself in his Dublin studio. Despite this lonesome pursuit, it's an album that adds all kinds of sonic detail and soulfulness to his songwriting resulting in possibly his most accessible music to date. There's an indie's only red...view item »

Galaxie 500
This is Our Music

Extremely classic and crucial album here from Galaxie 500, the dream-pop slow-indie band with one of the most particular sounds around. 1990’s This Is Our Music is the last album they released before splitting up, and contains songs as special as ‘Fourth of July’ and their Yoko Ono cov...view item »

Bob Moses
Battle Lines

This is the sort of thing that happens when you let Johnny Jewel release too many records. Bob Moses - confusingly not one person but two men called Tom and Jimmy - drop their second LP via Domino. Battle Lines is full of perfectly competent synth-pop songs that remind one of ...view item »

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 wor...view item »

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 fo...view item »

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....view item »

Franz Ferdinand
Always Ascending

New Franz Ferdinand! I always felt that Franz transcended the glut of mid-2000’s indie that rushed in on their coattails, and sure enough here they still are in 2017, producing music that is interesting and fresh. Always Ascending features lots of synth action, with moments that even recall ...view item »

Anna Calvi
Hunter

Why is she so wet? What has she been doing? Anyway for this third album for Domino Anna Calvi has made a visceral and truthful record that explores those very 2018 themes of sexuality and gender identity resulting in her most raw and primal record to date. Recorded by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, ...view item »

Tirzah
Devotion

Tirzah has been reaching a particular audience with her contemporary, streetwise voice since her debut EP for the Greco-Roman label in 2013. Now her soulful style reaches a wider audience on her debut LP for big boys Domino records. Co-created and written with Mica Levi who also produced, 'D...view item »

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 ...view item »

Animal Collective
Tangerine Reef

2018 is the International Year of the Reef, a project which aims to bring attention to the beauty of our friends beneath the waves as well as the massive amount of harm humanity has caused them. To commemorate it Animal Collective will produce their second audiovisual album Tangerine Reef (the fir...view item »

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 en...view item »

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...view item »

Dirty Projectors
Lamp Lit Prose

After their bleak and rather ham-fisted, one sided self titled break up album, Dirty Projectors are hopefully back doing what they do best with this lovely-titled new record. Information is thin on the ground but we hear that Lampo Lit Prose is a return to the band's infectious and inventive pop music as showcased on Swing L...view item »

Melody's Echo Chamber
Bon Voyage

Melody Prochet is back -- finally, after very nearly a six-year wait -- with her gloriously panoramic psych-pop project Melody's Echo Chamber. Following a lengthy absence and illness, Bon Voyage is the sophomore follow-up to Prochet's self-titled debut of 2012. We hope for great things after her initial opus: ...view item »

Protomartyr
Consolation EP

Now that they are quite popular, Protomartyr have made a new friend. She's not just any old friend though. She's none other than Kelley Deal from the Breeders. Everyone's favourite 'jellied eel' cockney rhyming slang appears on two tracks on this new EP which follows the bands rather successful Relatives in Descent LP. ...view item »

Sorry
Showgirl

Domino have snapped up London group Sorry off the back of two promising early mixtapes. Following on from Spring single ‘2 Down 2 Dance’ we now get ‘Showgirl’, a pleasant grungy slope. The press release describes it as ‘ferocious’, which it isn’t, but it’s a nice b...view item »

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...view item »

Flasher
Constant Image

Dum dum dum dum dum dum dum dum FLASH! … ER! Yes, it’s Washington, DC trio Flasher with their debut album Constant Image, which comes courtesy of the Domino Recording Company. The group go for lively indie rock in a graceful balance between heavy and light, while all three members (Taylor, Daniel and Emma) ...view item »

Joe Goddard
So Much / Human Touch

After a decade and a half with Hot Chip, time as half of 2 Bears, owning the record label Greco Roman and two solo albums, Joe Goddard has decided to focus his energy on the club scene with the first of two 12” singles. So Much brings some deep house to the ...view item »

Matthew E. White
Outer Face

Matthew E White’s debut LP ‘Big Inner’ was a big favourite of mine last year, creeping up on me slowly with his silky mumble and understated yet expansive and timeless soul-pop arrangements leaving every track on that one a future classic. Now we’re all acclimatised to his sound he&rs...view item »

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 the...view item »

Tirzah
Devotion

Debut album from frequent Mica Levi collaborator Tirzah. Devotion is her debut album, 11 tracks of cool and patient down-tempo R&B. Levi provides the production on the album while Tirzah's voice carries the melancholic atmosphere. Available on deluxe coloured vi...view item »

Animal Collective
The Painters EP

As is the tradition with Animal Collective, here is an EP companion to their most recent album Painting With, offering a few last chances to hear them working in that mode before they inevitably move on to something different. Four previously unheard tracks, including a cover of a song made famous by Martha &...view item »

Arctic Monkeys
Who The F**K Are The Arctic Monkeys

Alex Turner knows how to grind a hook into any song. He finds the melody in two bar tunes that no one else could, and he then works around it, slowly piecing together the song. The EP is based on an idea that could go wrong or right, depending on how you perceive it. They're singing about success and fame, and the pressures the lifestyle brings ...view item »

Alexis Taylor
Beautiful Thing

New solo business from voice-of-Hot Chip Mr Alexis Taylor! While his solo work in the past has often tended towards quiet intimacy (such as the self-explanatory Piano), fourth solo record Beautiful Thing, which was produced with UNKLE man Tim Goldsworthy, has p...view item »

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
Wolf of the Cosmos

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy has always been of particular interest to me - not because of his music - but because of his name. Why exactly does he need to claim to the 'Prince' status? Is he actually a prince? Or is he actually an unnecessary ego? Who knows. Either (or neither) way, Wolf of the Cosmos is available on vinyl LP and CD on Domino. ...view item »

Franz Ferdinand
Franz Ferdinand

Honestly, who knew we'd look back on this one as fondly as we do? Franz Ferdinand's first record seemed hell-bent on compacting as many hooks as was feasibly possible in a post-punk record, with "Take Me Out" a prime example of overdoing it for the best results. Not much else needs be said about this record of smirking gloo...view item »

Sorry
2 Down 2 Dance

Sorry are a new London band hopefully named after the Ronnie Corbett sitcom of the same name.  They make an interesting racket which takes in both r&b style beats and Nirvana grungy guitars. This is their debut 7" and it really does sound like Nirvana/Hole re-branded for the tastes of 2018.   ...view item »

The Kills
List of Demands (Reparations)

It is the Saul Williams classic. I was kinda joking when I was singing it in my head just then. The Kills are back with a 7" of covers. First up the aforementioned Saul Williams track and over on the flip they do the classic reggae tune Steppin' Razor by Joe Higgs, Peter Tosh & The Wailers.&nbs...view item »

Superorganism
Superorganism

Ok actual gonna-be-big record time. This hotly tipped million piece have already released two stellar singles and proved that not everything on Jools Holland is the worst music to blight humanity but now it's time to drop the big one. We are expecting multi-layered technicolour pop with nods to the Avalanches, Beck...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
Quail & Dumplings

Here's Bonnie Prince Billy with his latest single on which he does his Bonnie Prince Billy subtle countrified thing sounding almost exactly as you expect.  The video reveals how devoid of hair Mr Oldham's head has become. He wants to get some sunscreen on that. Or move to a cold climate. Up to him.  ...view item »

Lal & Mike Waterson
Bright Phoebus

A psychedelic folk classic worth nerding about. From all the way in 1972, Bright Phoebus features Lal and Mike of the Watersons making weirder and more verbose songs than ever before, inviting a rotating cast to develop a stranger and brighter strand of their pastoral songwriting. Quite lost in the avenues of time, it now...view item »

Julia Holter
Don't Make Me Over / Hello Stranger

Julia Holter has a penchant for taking classic pop tunes and abstracting them into her own fascinating world of chamber pop and ambient. 'Don't Make Me Over' offers up two on a double A-side: the eponymous cover of the Dionne Warwick song, as well as the gloriously sustained and droning "Hello Stranger", which is a cover of Barbara Lewis' origin...view item »

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...view item »

Palace Brothers
Days In The Wake

Will Oldham has used many names in his recording career. His early work was released under either Palace Music or Place Brothers depending on the band's line-up. Here, the band consists of his brothers Ned and Paul Oldham therefore the album was released under the Palace Brothers name. This is Will Oldham's second album and was released in 1994....view item »

Superorganism
Something For Your M.I.N.D.

They might look like the sort of trust fund twats that would write 'One GSCE' on a photo of a builder but in Superorganism the UK may finally have it's very own the Avalanches. Following their earlier indies only 7", this is their first release on the worldwide conglomerate that is Domino Records. It's a very good start indeed. ...view item »

Galaxie 500

Rating things out of ten is tough thing to do... This album I would rate 2/10 for Zumba classes, 4/10 for late night kebab shop ambience, 6/10 for insurance claim "your call is important to us" holding muzak & definitely 10/10 for walking a suburban night mile in crisp virgin snow, home from your best friend's house in 1990, with the...view item »

He spent a year-and-a-half perfecting his musically upbeat electro sound. The House features guest appearances from, among others, Sandy (Alex...view item »

Sorry
Wished / Lies

Sorry are a band who are able to sound poppy and underground at the same time, in this case using mainstream vocal arrangements and delivery with a slowcore dirge you'd equate with Picastro or a less doomy Big Brave. The result is an wonderfully entrancing and bittersweet contrast that demands f...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
Mindlessness

Disguised alt-country pioneer Bonnie "Prince" Billy released Singers Grave: A Sea of Tongues last year, a career watermark in terms of its contentedness and ability to steer between solo and full-band personas. Since then, he's also learned that you don't have to be singing a song to...view item »

Buzzcocks
Spiral Scratch

Pretty much your classic punk era single. Not only did this represent the early noisy Devoto era Buzzcocks at their most lethal but also was a true DIY statement with the band distributing the record themselves bypassing the then essential industry channels. This re-issue stays true to the original pressing with just 300 copies ...view item »

The Kills
Black Rooster EP

This was the Kills first ever record from way back in 2002. This was when former Blyth Power and Scarfo guitarist Jamie Hince teamed up with Alison Mosshart once of Discount to play a little bluesy punk rock. The rest, they say, is history.  This hasn't been available for a...view item »

If you wanted to make an incredibly long album and you figured 100 songs would be too many what would be the next number you'd pick?

These are songs that had to be eccentric and endearing, which they are....view item »

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...view item »

Seamus Fogarty
The Curious Hand

Some good news in a world full of dreadful news comes in the shape of the fact that Irish songwriter and electronic alchemist Seamus Fogarty has signed to Domino Records. His earlier albums were both very good and would be of particular interest to people who like the sea. Here he enjoys taking his lovely songs and adding odd bi...view item »

James Yorkston
Demonstration Of The Craws

The Demonstrations Of The Craws is a selection of raw and direct demos of James Yorkston songs, later to appear on his acclaimed The Cellardyke Recording and Wassailing Society albums. Great for the hardcore fans, but also for those who prefer a sparser sound. Vinyl only, Record Store Day 2015 item (e....view item »

Franz Ferdinand
Right Action / Love Illumination

Its the moment you have all been waiting for. The where-were-you happening for the twitter generation.

The Last Shadow Puppets
Everything You've Come To Expect

The Last Shadow Puppets was what we thought a one off collaboration between Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys) and Miles Kane but now they are back all grown up with a second album. While their debut was excellent piece of cinematic pop, lead single here "Bad Habits' is a growling piece of rawk. Early indications say ...view item »

Pavement
Terror Twilight

I wasn’t as filled with glee as I usually would be when I first heard Pavement’s final album “Terror Twilight”. There are some brilliant songs on here; I just feel that Nigel Godrich’s production took the Pavement out of Pavement, made them operate in a more confined space and reined t...view item »

Peter Perrett
How The West Was Won

Sandy (Alex G)
Rocket

After doing many self recorded, produced and released records and cassettes, Philadelphia’s Alex G has rightly been snapped up by Domino for 2015’s Beach Music, and now they bring him back for his eighth full length.

Flying Saucer Attack
New Lands

Released in 1997, New Lands is the eight-track pioneering record from Flying Saucer Attack. A solid and creative album that brings together different elements of their dreamy yet distinct shoegaze sound. Underneath a few of the tracks is a constant mumbling drone to keep you on edge and this quietly influential ...view item »

Dirty Projectors

Oh the classic mid-career self titled album. What will it yield?

'Up in Hudson' is certai...view item »

Austra

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.

Robert Wyatt

So I would say this is...view item »

Wild Beasts

Oh God, dear God what have they done?

It has come to my attention that I have never reviewed a Cass McCombs record before.

Here’s his latest, and possibly his most ambitious to date - a mammoth 19-song d...view item »

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 ...view item »

Blood Orange
Coastal Grooves

This is another great album from Blood Orange. This new album kicks off with the track "Forget It" which is a great track and a great way to start the album. His guitar playing on this album sounds great too and really helps the songs shine and sound great. There are also some awesome vocal performances on this album which sound great. Another h...view item »

Anna Calvi
Anna Calvi

I've not heard this lady before so while I'm letting her sink in a little bit I've been trying to think of words that rhyme with 'Calvi', except I can't think of any. Not proper rhymes like. I guess it was fun thinking about it though. From reading the press release I was fully expecting this to be very PJ Harvey-ish (Patti Smith is mentioned, N...view item »

Pavement
Quarantine The Past: The Best Of Pavement

Oh joyous day... Everyone knew it was only a matter of time before Pavement reformed to show the world who is best... That's right, best I said. Back in the 90's Pavement we're the band for me. I liked Nirvana, Mudhoney, Sonic Youth etc. but it was Pavement that spoke loudest. When pre-ordering Pavement records at my local record store the owner wo...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
Master and Everyone

Clint here with news of a brilliant album. Bonnie 'Prince' Billy returns with his first album for quite some time and the good news is:- its absolutely exceptional. I have to admit I haven't really liked the last couple of records he's done but this one is right up my alley. What to say? Well its...view item »

Arctic Monkeys
Humbug

Hey it's Arctic Monkeys. Can't see these guys catching on with their uneasy alliance of very obviously British lyrical obsessions and highly polished modern US rock sounds. Josh Homme had a big hand in the production and it's not hard to tell that they're massive fans since the singer dude spends half the album doing his best vocal impression and t...view item »

Bonnie Prince Billy
I See A Darkness

Will Oldham’s 6th album is his first where he uses the Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy moniker. Everything Will Oldham does well is on here. It’s sparse yet intense, strong yet fragile. “A Minor Place” opens the album and is one of two tracks that could be said to have any tempo, the ot...view item »

Robert Wyatt
Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard

At its heart, Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard is an active listening album. What I mean is, if you don't pay attention when you listen to it, you probably won't enjoy it very much. If you're not already a Robert Wyatt fan, I'm not sure if Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard is the best or most accessible place to start--that honour might go to Rock Bott...view item »

Tricky
Knowle West Boy

I read that 'Knowle West Boy' is a reference to the council estate in Bristol where Tricky grew up. He said that when he goes back there that people are pleased he's done well for himself but "I'd still get knocked out if I got mouthy in a bar". So onto his first album in 5 years... hehe he's got the obligatory shot of himself chugging on...view item »

Last Shadow Puppets
The Age Of Understatement

Couldn't get out of bed this morning. But the minute I did, the sun came out. Which places my mind in positive territory just in time for the debut Last Shadow Puppets album. 'The Age of the Understatement' contains a nicely rounded 12 tunes of smooth, cinematic 60's inflected pop that often continues the spaghetti Western feel of last weeks chart ...view item »

Arctic Monkeys
Favourite Worst Nightmare

Arctic monkeys second album has now arrived, so "Apes" are back! Expectations are huge at the band, because the first album was so brilliant, but if you heard the new "Brianstorm" single you can't hate the new album.I have now heard the new album so I can say that it was a big surprise to me, "Apes" have done an e...view item »

Neutral Milk Hotel
In The Aeroplane Over The Sea

The damn near-mythologised second album from Neutral Milk Hotel. Idiosyncratic stuff from 1998. Whether you’re die-hard for this one or rediscovering, let Jeff Mangum sing to you about semen-stained mountaintops and Jesus Christ between those stellar brass sections. Reissued on Domino on LP or CD....view item »

Smog
Red Apple Falls

Like all Smog albums, "Red Apple Falls" is good. I've always found it to be Bill Callahan's most Nick Drake-ish album, it's not that much like Nick Drake, but the opening track "The Morning Paper" could almost be on "Five Leaves left" or "Pink Moon" - but a more wonky version of either. Like lots of good albums, ...view item »

Smog
Dongs of Sevotion

Dongs is not what fans of Smog's early work will be looking for. It is loaded with songs that nuzzle up to popular song styles, with decent production (compared to the 4 track stuff on most of the old albums). Still, this album isn't selling the staunchly DIY Callahan out. Quite the contrary. The songs are still insightful and slightly weird. Fo...view item »

Pavement
Wowee Zowee

If there could ever be anything close to a modern day White Album, this is it. My first introduction to Pavement was "Rattled by the Rush", track 2 off this album; I was taken with its quiet chaos and looked up other songs by the band. While maybe not topping any "Best of the 90s" lists, Wowee Zowee gives its listener the clearest representation...view item »
