Austra have just unveiled the first video from their new album. “Home” is taken from their forthcoming full-length Olympia, the follow-up to 2011’s excellent debut Feel It Break, which is due for release on June 18th via Paper Bag/Domino. The video was directed by Noel Paul & Stefan Moore of That Go. Watch it now.
“Don’t Deny Your Heart” is the latest single to be released from Hot Chip’s latest album In Our Heads, which is being re-released as a double CD. The expanded edition features the original album augmented by a bonus disc of demos, rare studio tracks, as well as new and previously unreleased remixes by Optimo, Daphni and Major Lazer. Watch the hilarious video for “Don’t Deny Your Heart,” directed by Peter Serafinowicz, below.
Handsome and talented Britpop singer-songwriter Eugene McGuinness has dropped the video for “Sugarplum”, the latest single off of his amazing third full-length album The Invitation To The Voyage which is out via Domino Records. If you’re new to McGuiness’ music, first of all, you can thank us after watching the video below. Second of all, don’t let the tight-fitting linen suit and the slicked back hair through which the Irish/British singer blinks an eye to his influences and idols from the 60s make you think that you’re about to hear something retro and nostalgic. On the contrary, his music is as modern sounding as British pop music can ever be. And third of all, you will probably want to visit this YouTube playlist by Domino Records to watch what you’ve been missing from this guy.
As for “Sugarplum,” the single is due out on December 10th. We love the beat-driven bright groove and the marvelously catchy chorus of this single…oh, and not to mention, those brilliant wordplays that run through the lyrics which are basically calling his “Sugarplum” to be spontaneous and free, to celebrate the happiness in the present moment and letting everything else go by. Shot at a London rooftop, the video has a very simple, stylish and urban feel. You can watch it below.
Dirty Projectors have announced that the will release “About to Die,” taken from their sixth studio album Swing Lo Magellan, as an EP that will include 3 brand new tracks on November 6th via Domino Recording Co..

The videos were both written and directed by the band’s David Longstreth. Watch them below.
Here’s a new (short) video from garage-rockers The Kills… it’s for “Wild Charms” and it’s taken from their album Blood Pressures, which is out now on Domino Records. The video was directed by Kenneth Cappello.
“Today’s Supernatural” is the first single to stem from American experimental group Animal Collective’s ninth album, and first since 2009’s Merriweather Post Pavilion. The said album is titled Centipede Hz, and it comes out on September 4th via Domino Records. The band keeps it weird by commissioning Danny Perez to direct the video for the track. Make sure you tune in to their radio station this Sunday at 9PM EST as they will be unveiling the rest of their album.
Here’s “Dance for You,” our second taste from Dirty Projectors’ forthcoming album Swing Lo Magellan (“Gun Has No Trigger” was the first track to leak).
