Domino is proud to launch Documents, an irregular new series of live studio recordings designed to capture the ever-evolving arrangements of our artists and their bands in high fidelity. Taking its inspiration from classic BBC sessions, each Documents release will be recorded in no more than a day or two at a world class studio in London. The first official Documents release is In The Same Room by Julia Holter, although Domino count Villagers' Where Have You Been All My Life? as the honorary inaugural Document in all but name.
In January 2016 Tindersticks will release their new album The Waiting Room, a milestone not just numerically, but musically and creatively. Their first studio album since 2012 s critically acclaimed The Something Rain' is the most ambitious, diverse and elaborate album you ll have heard from Tindersticks in recent years. 2 decades into their musical voyage these masters of restraint and poetic human emotion, are a band now confidently making the best songs of their career. The Waiting Room' breathes gravity and features guest appearances by Jehnny Beth of Savages and a particularly poignant duet with long time friend of Stuart Staples and Canadian legend, Lhasa De Sela.
Dutch concept compilation album with exclusive songs from many interesting prog bands Aragon, Brassé, Cliffhanger, Final Conflict, Galahad, Galleon, Jacob's Dream, Like Wendy, Maryson, The Night Watch. Directed by Marc Brassé, each band was asked to write and record a new song and together, they form a story… a musical adventure around a number of paintings in a room. An interesting visit for all neo prog lovers…
On The Blue Room, her second Decca recording, Madeleine Peyroux and producer Larry Klein re-examine the influence of Ray Charles' revolutionary 1962 date, Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music. They don't try to re-create the album, but remake some of its songs and include others by composers whose work would benefit from the genre-blurring treatment Charles pioneered. Bassist David Pilch, drummer Jay Bellerose, guitarist Dean Parks, and pianist/organist Larry Goldings are the perfect collaborators. Most these ten tracks feature string arrangements by Vince Mendoza.
