Blonde Redhead has announced their first album in 9 years, Sit Down For Dinner, out September 29th, 2023 via section1.

Blonde Redhead has announced their first album in 9 years, Sit Down For Dinner, out September 29th, 2023 via section1.

The album’s title is a nod to the often-sacred communal ritual of sharing a meal with those you love, and this immersive, meticulously crafted album appropriately serves as an expression of persistent togetherness, a testament to the unique internal logic Blonde Redhead have refined over their three-decade existence.

Dinner has long been a sacred ritual for Blonde Redhead; when they're on tour or rehearsing, they always share a meal, no matter what. To celebrate the release of their new album, Sit Down for Dinner, the band will be hosting a dinner party in Paris, London, LA, and New York in partnership with section1. A limited amount of seats are available as part of a vinyl + dinner bundle.

Alongside the album announcement, Blonde Redhead has shared "Snowman," a song inspired by the attitude and breeziness of Brazilian experimental music, with a luminous groove and chord progression.

Blonde Redhead’s Amedeo Pace explains:

"Coming down in a bus from the Monte Rosa mountains and listening to Jorge Ben Jor (trying not to get motion sickness), I got inspired to write a song that only had two chords and a melody that would live and float between them. ‘Snowman’ is about how it can be a blessing or a curse to be invisible and undetectable, and how it’s something we all feel and desire at times."

The Fall dates find 2D, Murdoc, Noodle and Russel on the run in the U.S., having packed into their van following Gorillaz’ recent back-to-back Coachella performances – the first of which inspired The Los Angeles Times to proclaim “Gorillaz rule Day 1,” the second described by Uproxx as “electrifying” – and their highly successful 2022 World Tour led by Damon Albarn and the 14-piece live band, aided and abetted by a varying cast of guest performers.

HINAKO OMORI shares new single "in full bloom". First glimpse of new body of work set to follow.


- Shares new single in full bloom
- First glimpse at new body of work, set to follow
Press shot by Luca Crawford-Bailey

Following the release of her highly acclaimed debut album, ‘a journey…’, last year on Houndstooth, London-based artist Hinako Omori marks the start of a new chapter with a new single today, entitled in full bloom”.
“in full bloom” is an enchanting track where Hinako’s ethereal vocal melodies weave a shimmering web across organic, kaleidoscopic synth-lines.
“Focusing the beams on the allotment / where I tend to my inner garden / may you grow” Omori sings, presenting an introspective song about the need to take care of oneself. in full bloom is a song of reflection” she comments; “of remembering to love and have compassion towards ourselves.”
“On “in full bloom” I used the piano at Abbey Road - Pitchfork very kindly arranged a session there before the Pitchfork London festival last year (watch here), and we were able to use the day to work on something - I took in a demo that I’d been making at home and we recorded vocals, piano and additional synths. It was such a great opportunity to be able to finish the track there”.
in full bloom” on YouTube: https://youtu.be/wIgjGIF_Gfk
Other streaming options: https://hth.lnk.to/infullbloom
Where her 2022 album, 'a journey...', used binaural sounds and focussed on the therapeutic properties of music, her forthcoming work shifts the focus to shining a light on our shadow sides - the act of facing our fears, letting go and finding peace and stillness within ourselves. More information to follow in due course.
More about Hinako Omori:
Omori is a composer who thinks deeply about her music and provides generously to her listeners. Born in Yokohama, Japan, she moved to the UK when she was three years old and lives in London. She began her musical path learning classical piano, later training as a sound engineer, and has since moved into working with analogue synths. In addition to releasing her own solo material she has toured with and played on records by a raft of critically acclaimed musicians, including Kae Tempest, Georgia, and EOB, among many others, but it is her work in sound engineering that provides the bedrock of skills that manifest her vision for her solo work, articulating a whole world in binaural field recordings, analogue synthesisers and augmented vocals.

Dominic Fike announces North American tour + shares new music video




Dominic Fike by Daniel Prakopcyk



"Ant Pile"



PRE-SAVE/ORDER: https://DominicFike.lnk.to/Sunburn

(May 30, 2023) - Dominic Fike announces an upcoming Summer tour, Don’t Stare At The Sun, in support of his sophomore album Sunburn that is set for release on July 7th via Columbia Records. The announcement comes on the heels of him detailing Sunburn for fans last week and sharing new song "Ant Pile," the video for which arrives today alongside news of the tour. The Reed Bennett-directed video offers a glimpse into Dom's upbringing in Florida, capturing the essence of his formative years, and complements the previously released "Dancing In The Courthouse" video.

Dom gave fans a taste of what they can expect from the upcoming Live Nation-produced tour in his sold-out 2022 fall/winter Out Of Order tour and breakout Coachella set, which received praise from the likes of Drake, BLACKPINK's Jisoo, Cara Delevigne and Rolling Stone, who remarked that "his talent jumped out every time he took the mic." During that set, Dom delighted fans with the just-released single "Dancing In The Courthouse" along with debuting "Ant Pile" ahead of its formal release last week.

Running from mid-July through the end of August, the tour will include stops at iconic venues such as New York's Prospect Park, Los Angeles's The Greek Theatre and Chicago's Huntington Bank Pavilion, marking the biggest venues Dom has played to date. Tickets will be available starting with an artist presale tomorrow at 10AM local. A Live Nation and Ticketmaster presale will take place on Thursday, June 1st from 10AM to 10PM local time in each market. General on-sale begins June 2nd at 10 local time in each market at dominicfike.com.

The album is available for pre-order now and will be released on standard CD and vinyl formats, an exclusive CD edition with 60-page photo book as well as deluxe and color vinyl editions (the former of which is on black vinyl with a 24-page insert booklet and the latter of which comes on Florida orange vinyl with a 12-page insert booklet).

Loma Prieta Share Spiraling New Single “Circular Saw”

Loma Prieta Share Spiraling New Single “Circular Saw

The song appears on their new album, Last, available June 30th on Deathwish. // See Loma Prieta on tour in July.

"Loma Prieta sound as remarkable as ever" - BrooklynVegan

Loma Prieta's highly anticipated full-length Last will arrive June 30th from Deathwish Inc.  A long eight years since their previous LP, and three years since their excellent Continuum b/w Fate 7inch, Last is comprised of eleven new songs that took shape amid the turbulence the world has collectively faced since. The emotional tension within each song on Last is palpable; at times unfurling contemplatively with delicate melody while at others, exploding with sonic violence. The songs all give voice to the manic nature of the modern human experience.

Today, the San Francisco-based group has shared the album's spiraling new single, "Circular Saw."  Loma Prieta comments: "'Circular Saw' was written during summer of 2020, a time of deep fear and uncertainty; at the time, writing new music was meant as an escape from thinking about the state of the world. Interestingly, the song reflects the internal chaos we were trying to calm with writing new music at that time. Listening back, it's clear there was no way to ignore the mental toll of what was transpiring around us in that moment. It is a clear example of the effects of severe anxiety- serene and low energy one minute, raging anger the next."

For nearly two decades, Loma Prieta have evolved in front of our eyes. With each release, they have elevated the post-punk subgenre to high art without abandoning the heart at its core; all serving as an artistic reflection for their personal growth amid the complex world that surrounds us all.

Recorded at Atomic Garden Studios with Jack Shirley, this new album expands upon Loma Prieta’s kaleidoscopic discography — 2020’s “Continuum b/w Fate,” heralded LP's Self Portrait (2015), 2012’s I.V. and 2010’s Life/Less to name just a few — and is available for pre-order here ahead of the June 30th street date.  Revisit previous singles "Sunlight" and "Glare" below.
