Roll The Dice have been confirmed for the upcoming All Tomorrow's Parties Nightmare Before Christmas, on the day curated by Leaf alumni Caribou. The festival takes place at Butlin's in Minehead over the weekend of December 9-11 (the first two days are curated by Les Savy Fav and Battles respectively).

Before ATP, Malcolm and Peder play a string of shows in Europe taking in Le Guess Who? (Utrecht) and Autumns Falls (Brussels) festivals and a second headline show in London, amongst others. Blanck Mass (F*ck Buttons) will DJ at the London show, which takes place at Corsica Studios, joining the previously announced Haxan Cloak. All of the shows are on our live page.

Pre-Order Matthew Bourne's Montauk Variations
Published 17 November 2011 by BWL


Matthew Bourne's first ever solo studio album, Montauk Variations, will be released on February 6 2012, and you can pre-order it now from our shop. You can exclusively preview three songs from the album here now.

Montauk Variations by Matthew Bourne

A phenomenal live performer, Bourne brings a breathtaking physicality to the piano that, once witnessed, is hard to forget. Montauk Variations is, by contrast, an album of beautiful, lyrical solo piano compositions, yet still serves as a great introduction to his multifarious talents. This is the first in a series of album projects to be released through a new partnership with Leaf. Future releases under the ‘Matthew Bourne Presents’ banner will include an audio-visual project recorded with his beloved Memorymoog analogue synthesizer, and an album with vocalist Seaming To under the name Billy Moon, which you can expect to hear in the next 18 months or so.

Bourne teams up with London Sinfonietta again this Friday (November 18) for the London Jazz Festival. The project, 'Written/Unwritten', was premiered this summer at London's Kings Place and puts together the differing worlds of improvisation (Bourne) and composition (London Sinfonietta). Lithuanian composer/percussionist Vladimir Tarasov will also appear.

March 2012 will see Bourne head to China as part of a residency programme organised by The British Council and PRS For Music Foundation. Joining Imogen Heap, Jamie Woon and Gareth Bonello, the programme is designed to enable innovative British musicians to explore new musical trerritory, reach new audiences and write new material in the context of an emerging, international market.

Bourne travels to China early next year as part of a British Council residency and they have produced a brilliant little video from a recent live show:

Leaf Mixtape Available For Download
Published 24 November 2011 by BWL


Last month was the 40th birthday of Leeds' wonderful Jumbo Records and they asked Leaf founder Tony Morley to put together a mixtape for the occasion. The hand-packaged CDRs sold out almost immediately so we're giving non-Yorkshire folk the chance to download the mix from our shop and iTunes (UK, US) at a bargain price.

The mix takes in tracks from the last 13 years, going back as far as Susumu Yokota's first release on the label, and brings us right up to date with exclusive tracks from 2012 releases by Matthew Bourne, volcano! and another artist that we haven't even announced we're working with yet...
