    Confessions

    Confessions is a collaboration between acclaimed American composer Nico Muhly and Faroese singer/songwriter Teitur. The lyrics, inspired by or culled from video and commentary the pair found on YouTube, are simple, matter-of-fact, fragmentary, funny, and strange, yet they attain a dignity paired with the gorgeous and expressive music, composed and arranged for Holland Baroque, which performs it on the album.

    Toujours, the first solo record from Brazilian Girls co-founder,
    Sabina updates the classic YÉ-YÉ music that was exploding
    in France, Italy and spain in the early '60s with international
    pop grooves. Imagine Nico and serge Gainsbourg having
    cocktails. As matter of fact when asked about Toujours,
    sabina says, "I want to bring people together, make them
    mingle, dance, sing and discuss, that's what life really is."
    The New York Times says it's "Hard to imagine a better
    poster girl for polyglot New York pop" and rolling stone calls
    sabina simply, "glamorous." Toujours rediscovers sabina's
    unique voice, anthemic songwriting and her signature multilingual story telling.

    Planetarium

    Planetarium is a concept album that occasionally gives way to ambient interludes and majestic brass chorales, buttressed by a percussive drive that keeps the momentum skyward. In spite of all the experimentation in sound and style, Sufjan's vocals provide a clear and coherent center of gravity. The album includes some of his most diverse vocal performances to date (from soft hush to guttural scream), and whether he's singing through effects pedals, vocoders, auto-tune or not, his voice delivers an ambitious flight map through the cosmos. Planetarium is an album co-composed by four musicians: Bryce Dessner, James McAlister, Nico Muhly, and Sufjan Stevens.


    Flanked by a string quartet and a consort of seven trombones, this unique collaborative ensemble has assembled an expansive song cycle that explores the Sun, the Moon, the planets and other celestial bodies of our solar system (and beyond) through soundscape, song, science and myth. The result of this creative alliance is a musical and aesthetic journey as far-reaching as its subject: from lush piano ballads to prog-rock political anthems, curious electronic back-beats to classical cadenzas, the vast musical styles seek to explore the diversity and mystery of our cosmos. The subject of the album is not just the wilderness of outer space, but the interior space of human consciousness and how it engages.

    Bones

    Described as a call to action, a document of personal and collective uprising, 'Bones' is Son Lux's fourth album since producer-composer Ryan Lott started working under the name in 2007. Having recently evolved into a three-piece with guitarist-composer Rafiq Bhatia and drummer Ian Chang, 'Bones' comes after what you might typically describe as a whirlwind couple of years that have seen Lott work with Lorde, Boots, Sufjan Stevens, Nico Muhly, Busdriver and more.

    Killer Road


    Double LP With Gatefold Sleeve And 16-Page Booklet


    LP 1 Is Black Vinyl, LP 2 Is White Colored Vinyl


    A shimmering ambient tone, an electronic underlay to the lulling chatter of
    crickets, makes way for the unmistakable voice of Patti Smith, quietly intoning,
    ominously, "The killer road is waiting for you / like a finger, pointing in the night."


    Behind the music and concept of Killer Road is international trio Soundwalk
    Collective - Stephan Crasneanscki, Simone Merli, and Kamran Sadeghi - who,
    alongside Patti Smith's daughter, Jesse Paris, conceived an immersive exploration
    of the tragic death of Christa PÄffgen. Better known as Nico, the Velvet
    Underground chanteuse and solo pioneer, PÄffgen died while riding her bike on
    the island of Ibiza in the summer of 1988. Ironically, she'd recently got her health
    back, after fifteen years of heroin addiction. It was Nico's body's reaction to its
    new sobriety, and the fact she was cycling at the hottest time of the day, on the
    hottest day of the year, that was to prove her undoing.


    In the years before she died, Nico had not neglected her creative muse, writing
    poetry that would never be published, or heard, until now, in the form of the
    opening title track, "Killer Road." The tracks that follow are eight interpretations
    of Nico lyrics, predominantly taken from classic albums such as Desertshore and
    Drama of Exile, arranged by fellow poet and kindred spirit Patti Smith.


    The roots of Killer Road lie in a fortuitous meeting on an airplane bound for New
    York. One passenger was Smith; the other was Soundwalk Collective founder
    Crasneanscki. Soundwalk had previously been a collaborative series of walking
    guides to cities that created an idiosyncratic and evocative understanding for the
    listener, before evolving into musical frameworks for field recordings and sight
    specific sound installations and performances using a variety of texts and themes.


    Killer Road was initially a live audio-visual experience, at the French Institute
    Alliance Francaise in New York as part of 2014's Crossing the Line festival. Finally,
    we now have the recorded version, a poignant, profound, imaginative exploration
    and tribute nearly 30 years after that fateful summer's day.

    Psychic

    DARKSIDE is the collaborative duo of guitarist/
    composer Dave Harrington and electronic
    producer Nicolas Jaar. DARKSIDE summon
    a hybrid of electronic music, psychedelic
    rock, and dancefloor techno with the sort of
    artistic depth and breadth for which the term
    "progressive" was coined. DARKSIDE's first fulllength album-released on Nico's own Other
    People label in conjunction with Matador
    Records-is called Psychic.


    DARKSIDE's Psychic is a watershed moment
    for the duo, a quantum leap forward from
    their 3-song debut, 2011's DARKSIDE EP. At
    any given moment, Psychic encompasses the
    ritualistic structures and methodologies of
    krautrock, the cosmic exploration of classic
    space-rock, and the immersive, body-moving
    transcendence of 21st century house and
    techno-but, working with the finishingeach-others'-sentences fluidity of kindred
    spirits, Dave and Nico synthesize it all into a
    living, breathing whole.


    DARKSIDE are deep listeners and creators
    of both who see little need for distinction
    between their favorite sounds. The result
    is Psychic, an album of uncompromising
    creative vision from two artists working at the
    peak of their powers.


    "Nocturnal, cerebral, sensuous, paradoxical, and intuitive."

    - Pitchfork


    "How did Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington manage to make exactly
    the music I want to listen to right now? (Maybe all the time?)"

    - The Fader


    "On listening to Nicolas Jaar's new bluesy electronica project with his
    guitarist Dave Harrington, Darkside, it's rather too easy to forget that
    he's just 21. This is seriously ambitious music, with the emphasis on
    serious."

    The third Final Fantasy full-length and the first for Domino, Heartland is the product of nine months work in four separate countries. The release is a fully orchestral record, designed to exist simultaneously as an album, a 45-minute piece of orchestral music and a set of songs for looped violin and voice. Work began in earnest in November of 2008, when Owen Pallett and Arcade Fire drummer Jeremy Gara flew to Reykjavik to work at The Greenhouse, Valgeir Siggurdsson's studio (Bjork's Medulla, Bonnie Prince Billy's The Letting Go) with engineer Mio ??rrison at the board. The orchestra was recorded in January of 2009, in Prague, with the Czech Symphony. Other guests include Matt Smith (Nifty), Reg Vermue (Gentleman Reg) and Nico Muhly. Rusty Santos, who produced Animal Collective's Sung Tongs and mixed Panda Bear's Person Pitch, was taken on as mixer.

    Music From the Original Series Orange Is the New Black will be released via Universal Music Enterprises. The full track list includes the Grammy-nominated theme song, You've Got Time, by Regina Spektor, as well as songs by Kelis, The Velvet Underground, Nico and more.


    I feel like it's truly an inspired work, music supervisor Bruce Gilbert says of the Spektor song in a statement. I loved this song when I first heard it, but I loved it even more once I got to hear and see how beautifully it impacted our main titles. There's an immediate urgency to it that gives way to an emotion that breathes even more life into the stunning portraits of the prisoners.

    Go

    Jonsi has spent more than a decade writing epic compositions with Sigur Ros, creating some of the finest, most acclaimed albums of the last ten years. The choice to make an album of solo recordings came together as a solution to a backlog of songs Jonsi had written that didn't seem to fit within the Sigur Ros context. Go is a different beast entirely. Ecstatic, dramatic and alive, it features Jonsi's signature vocals throughout, with the majority of the songs sung in English.


    Not a straight ahead pop record, nor rock, folk, ambient or electronic, it encompasses all of these to create an expansive musical palette that's been brought to life by Jonsi alongside a number of free-spirited collaborators. Chief among these is Nico Muhly, the Philip Glass protege who is renowned for his work with Bjork, Antony & The Johnsons, Bonnie Prince Billy and Grizzly Bear. Also in the mix is the percussive genius of Samuli Kosminen, whose original drumming powers many of the songs along so you have a sonic landscape that bears little relation to anything else around today, yet explodes from the speakers with sheer happiness and wonder, wide-eyed and eager to be heard. The album was recorded in Iceland and Connecticut, was co-produced by Jonsi, Alex Somers and Peter Katis (The National, Interpol) and was mixed by Tom Elmhirst in London.

    People Problems

    Oh No Oh My writes songs that beat down your senses and fill up your boots with a feeling like you've just gotta, at the very least, move. The band jokingly describes their music as sexy indie which is what you might expect from an Austin-based foursome who cite Serge Gainsbourg's Histoire De Melody Nelson, Spiritualized's Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space and Nico's Chelsea Girls as influences on their second full-length album People Problems.



    Multi-instrumentalists Daniel Hoxmeier, Joel Calvin, Greg Barkley and Tim Regan showcase a relaxed, effortless feel and pull no punches, anything goes strategy (Pitchfork) on 12 melodically driven tunes that range from winsome plaints to slightly off-kilter rockers, including seven tracks with hauntingly beautiful strings.



    Oh No Oh My collaborated with sound engineers Jeff Byrd (Spoon, John Vanderslice) and Brad Bell (Spoon, Meat Puppets) in recording People Problems, the follow-up to 2008's Dmitrji Dmitrji EP. The album was recorded in the studio of Spoon drummer Jim Eno and at Hoxmeier's Sugarcube studio (named after the Yo La Tengo song).

    Additionally, the title track Cut The World is featured here for the first time. It is one of Antony's new songs for The Life and Death of Marina Abramovi, directed by Robert Wilson and staring Antony, Marina Abramovi and Willem Dafoe.



    Cut The World was recorded live on September 2nd and 3rd, 2011 at the DK Concert Hall in Copenhagen, DK and represents Antony's continued meditation on light, nature and femininity. Antony discusses his ideas on the track Future Feminism, a speech he made during one of the concerts. Addressing the affects of patriarchy on the global ecology, Antony explores the possibility of shifting towards feminine systems of governance in a gesture to restore our world.

    Strange Weather

    Anna Calvi is to release a 5 track covers EP entitled 'Strange Weather.' Produced by Thomas Bartlett
    (The National, Antony and the Johnsons, Sam Amidon) and recorded in New York, the EP features
    covers of tracks by FKA twigs, Connan Mockasin, Suicide, David Bowie as well as a stunning
    collaboration with David Byrne on the title track, a cover of Keren Ann's 'Strange Weather'.


    The cover of Suicide's Ghost Rider was recorded with drummer Matt Johnson (Jeff Buckley), and Nico
    Muhly contributes string arrangements to the EP opener, a deconstructed organic reworking of FKA
    twigs' 'Papi Pacify.'


    David Byrne said the following on working with Anna:


    'I'm a big fan of Anna's two records... and I caught her tour after her first record at Bowery Ballroom
    here in NY. 'Epic' I think is the word that is often used. So when Thomas Bartlett said he was going to
    be in the studio producing an EP of Anna doing covers I immediately agreed to join in. I was invited
    to suggest songs and I loved the last Keren Ann record and I thought Strange Weather had a haunting
    quality that might suit Anna.... so we did that, and Anna then suggested I join in on the Connan
    Mockasin track she'd done too.'

    Music For Heart And Breath

    Music for Heart and Breath is Richard Reed Parry's debut as classical composer who is mostly known from the Grammy Nominated Uber Indie Rock
    Band Arcade Fire Richard is a multi-instrumentalist and composer, drawing his influences from classical music, folk and electronica. This is his first core classical release
    that will find his home at Deutsche Grammophon!


    The album features various compositions for Heart and Breath for various ensembles, as well as small interludes (Interruptions) The concept behind Heart and Breath is that every musician involved in the piece generates his own tempo by listening to his/her pulse during the performance. Fragile and intimate, these stunningly created performance effects are the basis for this conceptual compositional approach Richard explains:


    "Music for Heart and Breath is a series of compositions that use involuntarily moving organs of the human body (specifically the lungs and the heart) as performance parameters. There are no time signatures: the tempos and rhythms are always governed by either the heart rates or the breathing rates of the individual players. In the case of the latter, the performers are instructed to play directly in sync with their own or another player's individual breathing (playing at the speed of their inhalations, their exhalations or both). To enable the players to hear and play in sync with their own heartbeats, they wear stethoscopes and, naturally, generally play quietly."


    The music is performed by an exciting line-up of musicians, produced by Bryce Dessner Nico Muhly (Conductor, celeste/piano), Bryce & Aaron Dessner (guitar) from The National, Kronos Quartet, the ensemble Ymusic

    Three EP's 2012 - 2014

    Dinner is the alias for Danish singer and producer Anders Rhedin. Since 2012, Dinner has released two EPs (Girl and You Are Like LA) and a guided meditation tape. This Fall, in collaboration with Texas label Red Eye Transit, we will be releasing his latest effort Oui!, a four-track EP that serves as a powerful introduction to this idiosyncratic musician.


    Dinner's songs seem to be inspired by his own life-in the lyrics you find references to cities, parties and girls (the
    latter sometimes referred to as "the divine feminine"). Dinner himself claims that "All the songs are about death and transcendence."
    At times, Dinner sounds a bit like a sun-bleached cassette tape you'd find stuck behind your car's dashboard-last played at a party in Dusseldorf in 1984-full of echoes of sweaty
    depressions, spiritual longings, and early-morning trances." At times, Dinner sounds a bit like melodic EBM-meets-Europop with elements of Danish darkwave. And sometimes he sounds
    more like the male descendant of Nico singing Eno-esque pop songs on discarded Julian
    Cope tracks. Whomever you ask, you'll find Dinner's sound defies simple classification.
    In his own words, his influences range from rock 'n' roll and pop giants like Michael Jackson and
    Velvet Underground, to experimental tape-music pioneers like Steve Reich.


    Dinner lives a somewhat nomadic existence, having alternated between LA, Berlin and
    Copenhagen. This last year, Dinner's itinerary has included falling in love with a baroness in
    Berlin, learning Qigong from a renowned Sifu on a mountainside in the Algarve, working on
    commercial pop songs in Hollywood ("The essence of dark magic," according to Dinner), and
    playing shows at festivals and galleries all over Europe. His current location is LA, where he is working on his debut full-length. Look out for that 2015.

    Lily-O

    Lily-O, a new album of reimagined folk songs by Vermont-born singer/fiddler/banjoist/guitarist Sam Amidon will be released by Nonesuch Records. The album was produced by Valgeir Sigurðsson (Björk, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Feist) and features the innovative jazz guitarist and composer Bill Frisell, along with Amidon's other frequent collaborators, bassist Shahzad Ismaily and drummer Chris Vatalaro.


    Frisell has been a hero of Amidon's since the young Vermont native first heard the guitarist play at the Village Vanguard during a teenage visit to New York City. The two musicians stayed in touch and had their first live collaboration in 2011; not long after, Amidon began contemplating a return to Iceland to make a third album at Sigurðsson's Greenhouse Studios. He eventually invited Frisell to join him and Sigurðsson, along with Ismaily and Vatalaro, to record what became Lily-O.


    "I decided to put us all in a room together in Reykjavik for a few days," Amidon said. "I knew if I got Bill together with those guys they would get into a deep situation. I imagined that we would do something weird and fiddle-based, but when we got in there it just felt great to sing the songs I had gathered. Recording took about four days. I'd teach them the basic structure of the song; we'd do a few takes, and move on to a new one. There's maybe one or two overdubs but otherwise you're hearing what we played."


    Lily-O's ten songs are mostly traditional folk songs gathered from disparate sources and refashioned in Amidon's signature way. The interplay between the four musicians is informed by their backgrounds in improvised music and the spontaneous nature of the sessions. As always, the central element is Amidon's voice, which, in his deceptively understated manner, tells tales of adventure, love, violence and redemption.


    Lily-O follows four albums by Amidon including his 2013 Nonesuch debut, Bright Sunny South. 2010's I See The Sign and 2008's All Is Well were made for the Icelandic label Bedroom Community and featured orchestral arrangements by composer Nico Muhly. Along the way Amidon has performed worldwide in myriad contexts, collaborating with musicians such as Muhly, Thomas Bartlett/Doveman, Beth Orton and Glen Hansard. He has appeared as a guest artist on recent albums by Tune-Yards, Aoife O'Donovan and the Blind Boys of Alabama.
