Warmdsucher at EartH

Get your Halloween hammers in courtesy of Warmdusher. They’re on the socially-distanced gig train, playing two sets at EartH in Hackney on October 31st. They have new songs in the chamber, and seven months of pent up Duscher energy to expend. This will go off (responsibly).

Tickets will be on general sale at 10am on Friday, October 9th. Form an orderly queue outside warmduscher.co.uk.

***UPDATE: Postponed until further notice***

Craven Faults - Enclosures
Published 01 October, 2020 by DM

Craven Faults returns. Enclosures follows debut album Erratics & Unconformities which landed at the very beginning of this year - a lifetime ago. These 37 minutes of music are the start of the next journey. New terrain and more refined methods of travel. Dark clouds gathering.

New single ‘Doubler Stones’ means business from the off. Watch the mesmeric generative video by long-time Craven Faults collaborator James Islip.

Enclosures will be released November 27th and is available to pre-order on limited edition black vinyl and limited edition blue vinyl (Bandcamp and Norman Records exclusive). There is a super-limited cork/rubber turntable mat + blue vinyl bundle available only on Bandcamp.

Keeley Forsyth - Photograph EP
Published 30 September, 2020 by DM

Keeley Forsyth follows up her critically lauded debut album, Debris, with the Photograph EP. It takes two steps on from the album’s electronic closer ‘Start Again', and hints at the vast possibilities open to Forsyth on her next album. Her striking vocals still sit at the centre of everything, with traditional song structures giving way to something more expansive.

“I always work from home,” Forsyth explains. “This time, the isolation had a new influence on my lyrical ideas. I was contemplating the idea of homesickness within the home; when life is lived on the domestic grid, in rooms and in tasks. I was looking to reframe the day, to give sound to the picture.”

Watch the surreal video for the title track now. Dinner is served.

Photograph will be released November 20th, and is available to pre-order now on limited edition 12” vinyl.

Domenique Dumont - People On Sunday
Published 15 September, 2020 by DM

We’re delighted to welcome a new signing with considerable pedigree to the Leaf stable. Domenique Dumont, whose hazy exotica albums Comme Ça and Miniatures De Auto Rhythm you may already be familiar with, is the thoroughbred in question. Released on Parisian electronic label Antinote, the records have garnered something of a cult following, and are well worth investigating if you haven’t done so already.

Dumont’s third album - his first for Leaf - is entitled People On Sunday, an original soundtrack commissioned to accompany the 1930 silent film variously known as Menschen am Sonntag, Les Hommes le Dimanche and People On Sunday. The film is a key work of interwar German cinema, based on a screenplay by Billy Wilder. Drawing on Dumont’s love of classical music, library music and early electronic experimentation to create a timeless sound, the album evokes a more innocent, carefree era conjured by wistful electronics full of warmth and melody.

“The film shows people and their surroundings shortly before all of it was destroyed,” says Dumont, who has previously composed for film. “Ironically, watching this movie with the eyes of today, it looks more surreal than documentary. And I can’t help but think and reflect about the times we are living in now. We might have similar desires people had a hundred years ago, but we now have a completely different approach to life.”

The title track is accompanied by a video featuring excerpts from the film.

People On Sunday will be released on various formats, including limited edition white vinyl LP (from independent shops only), black vinyl LP and limited edition CD. There is also a super limited edition silver vinyl LP available via Bleep and Bandcamp only. Pre-order here.
