Jake Bugg debut album to be released this April

Jake Bugg, Nottingham’s newest hitmaker has announced his eponymously-titled debut album, set for release here in the Philippines on 23rd April under MCA Music.

To date Jake has taken the UK by storm. He’s been on Radio 1 playlists, supported The Stone Roses at an already legendary secret gig in London and has support dates with Noel Gallagher in the UK and Europe on the horizon, as well as his first trip to the USA in support of Noel and Snow Patrol.

Support has come across the board, from the NME, Clash, The Fly, i-D, The Observer, Independent On Sunday, The Sun, The Daily Star and more. He is a unique artist right now, a working class kid with an acoustic guitar set to take the world by storm with his perfectly poised songs about growing up and his hometown of Nottingham. It’s an old fashioned approach that is paying rich dividends. To date he has had a phenomenal five Record Of The Weeks on Radio 1 with massive support across the board from Zane Lowe, Fearne Cotton, Greg James and Huw Stephens. His debut TV performance on Later with Jools Holland was a special moment.

His debut album is 14 songs, clocking in at less than 40 minutes that belie his eighteen years. Sharp, observant and honest, they inhabit a world no other new UK act is currently operating in. It opens with recent single “Lightning Bolt”, a scorching blues number with his Telecaster to the fore. New single “Two Fingers” follows with its swaggering chorus, whilst the likes of “Country Song” and “Broken” are more reflective. It’s a perfectly paced record, one that marks out Jake as the most exciting new UK act of 2012 and manages to effortlessly straddle the gap between authenticity and mainstream appeal. He counts Noel Gallagher, Lily Allen, Elton John, Chris Martin, Damon Albarn and Snow Patrol amongst his fans and has supported Michael Kiwanuka, Example and Lana Del Rey.

DOMINO : MANTIS

The artist: This woman’s music career started in grade school, when she sang a Filipino folk song on stage. A few years after, she then recorded her first album “Fair Tales”, in which she realized that music was indeed her lifelong calling.. She’s definitely no diva or pop princess though. If you see Lally Buendia aka Domino in person, you know that with her leather-wearing vibe and blunt, edgy ‘do, she’s sharp and feisty and she surely won’t sing you any love song. But worry not because she just might, in her latest album Mantis.

On Mantis : Two years in the making, Lally would write songs on days when she was on either side of her emotional spectrum. She believes this album is her unabashed attempt to come out and kick ass. She was also tremendously lucky to have worked with a motley crew of brilliant artists in the music scene – Ely Buendia (Pupil, The Oktaves), Pat Tirano (TOI), Jerome Velasco (Daydream Cycle), Jazz Nicolas (The Itchyworms), Mikey Amistoso (Ciudad, Hannah+Gabi), and Eric Perlas (COG) who co-produced the album. Japs Sergio (Peso Movement, Daydream Cycle) co-wrote 2 songs and Aldus Santos (The Purplechickens) wrote a track and recorded guitars and vocals for it. Clem Castro (The Camerawalls) and Wendell Garcia (Pupil) also played on a couple of tracks. Having grown up in a family where everyone’s into music of all sorts, you’ll be able to hear strains of these genres in all her songs. And as she is never one to box out her band in one category, she defines Domino’s music as a fusion of everything, easily one that she would like to listen to, just probably with more bits of pop in it, as this is her biggest influence.

Mantis includes the following tracks: “I Love You, But I’m Driving”, “His Song”, “Veil”, “I Die Each Time”, “Eight Days”, “Farichild”, “Oath”, “This Furious Now”, “To Thunder” and “Dites-moi”.

So ladies and gents, enough said. How about we skip the pleasantries? Buckle up and prepare for a sexy soundtrip. If you’re in for a funking out, eargasmic time, Mantis won’t disappoint.

Mantis by Domino is now out in CDs at Odyssey Music & Video stores nationwide under MCA Music (Universal Music Philippines).
