Lo-fi indie rocker Alex G will release Beach Music, his first album for Domino, on October 9. First single "Bug" has just a little more studio work than his previous releases, but it's otherwise very much up that same alley. Check it out, with the album artwork and tracklist, below.
Alex and TF don't play NYC together, but Alex plays a record release show here on October 8 at Baby's All Right with Porches frontman Ronald Paris and Forth Wanderers. Tickets go on sale Friday (8/14) at 10 AM.
He also has shows with Girlpool and Spencer Radcliffe coming up. All dates are listed below...
Petite Noir, aka multi-genre South African artist Yannick Ilunga, released the The King of Anxiety EP earlier this year on Domino, and the label will put out his debut full length in September. It's called 'La Vie Est Belle / Life Is Beautiful, drops on 9/11, and is prefaced by the lead single "Down." You can watch the video for that below. That's the album artwork above.
Petite Noir also has tour dates coming up, including two in NYC. The first is an Afropunk-curated Red Bull Sound Select show on July 14 at Lot 45 (411 Troutman St in Bushwick). Openers and RSVP info TBA. Then he returns in August for the Afropunk Festival in Commodore Barry Park (8/22-23) with Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Kelis, Danny Brown, Suicidal Tendencies, Kele, Thundercat and more. Tickets for that fest are still available.
All dates are listed, with the new video and album tracklist, below...
It's been a killer year for Del the Funky Homosapien. He already played "Clint Eastwood" with Damon Albarn at Bonnaroo, and Deltron 3030 have an upcoming tour that hits NYC for a free Celebrate Brooklyn show in Prospect Park on 7/19 and NJ the next day (tix). Now, another of Del's groups, the great Hieroglyphics, will be going on a short Northeast tour this August following Deltron's run.
For this tour the group will include Del along with A-Plus, Casual, Domino, Opio, Pep Love, Phesto, Tajal and DJ Toure. It kicks off in Boston and hits NYC a day later on August 21 at Brooklyn Bowl. Tickets for that show are on fan club presale now (anyone know the password?) and the general on-sale begins Friday (6/27) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.
Hieroglyphics' last album was 2013's The Kitchen which was their first since 2003's Full Circle. You can stream The Kitchen over at SPIN. Watch the video for "You Never Knew" off their classic debut, 3rd Eye Vision, with the list of tour dates, below...

Julia Holter at Bowery Ballroom in 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Art pop musician Julia Holter had one of the best albums of 2012 with Ekstasis, and she's now set to release that album's followup, Loud City Song, on August 20 via her new label home, Domino. Regarding the new album, Domino writes:
The songs that make up Loud City Song have origins that pre-date 2011's debut Tragedy - coaxed out and finessed as demos in Holter's bedroom studio and then finally coalesced into one thrillingly cohesive experience in the latter stages of 2012 by Holter and co-producer Cole Marsden Grief-Neill and an ensemble of Los Angeles musicians. The result is an album of enormous ambition - Holter taking inspiration from Collette's 1944 novella Gigi and using it as a prism through which to explore her relationship with her hometown of Los Angeles and modern life universally, taking cues from the work of Joni Mitchell and the poetry of Frank O'Hara but forging those touch-points into something resolutely unique.Check out the video for the haunting opening track, "World," below.
As mentioned, Julia is coming to NYC for a show on July 12 at Le Poisson Rouge with Jessica Pratt around the time of her appearance at Pitchfork Music Festival. Julia has since announced a full tour happening this summer, and all dates are listed below. Tickets for the NYC show are still available.
Dufus' last show at Cake Shop in 2010 (more by Daniel Sieradski)
Manhattan's SideWalk Cafe is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and in honor of that, they'll be having anniversary events all year long. The first of these will be the winter edition of the bi-annual Antifolk Festival, which will take place at the cafe from February 19 to 28. The 10-day festival includes a number of performers each day, and the full schedule is below. One of the notable ones is on February 26, the cafe will host Jeffrey Lewis & Peter Stampfel (of Holy Modal Rounders), who have a long collaborative history, plus Forest Creature, Larkin Grimm, and others.
Forest Creature is the new duo of Seth Faergolzia (Dufus) and John Ludington, and the Sidewalk Cafe show is part of their February/March tour, which also includes a Brooklyn show later that night (2/26) at Goodbye Blue Monday (1087 Broadway) with Chingching. They recently revealed their first track, "Beasly," a meandering antifolk cut, which you can stream below, along with a list of all dates.
Animal Collective revealed the first and super distorted lead single for their new album, Centipede Hz. It's called "Today's Supernatural" and you can stream it below. The track was premiered last night on Animal Collective Radio, a new weekly online radio show, which airs every Sunday at 9PM EST, presented by Domino and Creators Project. Each show is hosted by a different member of Animal Collective. Last night it was hosted by Panda Bear, and in addition to the premiere of the new single, his show featured guest DJ sets by Black Dice, Sublime Frequenices, and Haunted Graffiti. If you missed last night's show, it will be streaming on loop for the 24 hours following its airing.

Hot Chip have signed to Domino Records who will put out the band's fifth album, In Our Heads, which will be out June 12 in all the popular formats. It will be the band's first since 2010's One Life Stand.
Hot Chip's only American show scheduled at this point is the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago on July 13, but a NYC show before or after seems likely. No music yet (or album art) at this early juncture, but the tracklisting is at the bottom of this post.
2012 is a busy year for Hot Chip, in and out of the group. Joe Goddard is one half of The 2 Bears whose debut album, Be Strong, came out back in January and is one of the more fun, danceable albums of the year so far. (You can stream it on Spotify.) Felix Martin and Al Doyle are two-thirds of New Build whose debut (very Roxy Music) is out April 3 via the band's own Lunark Recordings. New Build will be at SXSW and play Mercury Lounge March 13 and 14.
Tour dates and audio streams for New Build are below, plus 2 Bears videos and the In Our Heads tracklist...
