As 2016 drew to a close, Domino launched a new imprint, Documents – an irregular new series of live studio recordings designed to capture the ever-evolving arrangements of our artists and their bands in high fidelity. Taking its inspiration from classic BBC sessions, each Domino Documents release will be recorded in no more than a day or two at a world class studio in London. Or at least that’s the plan.
The first official Documents release is In The Same Room by Julia Holter, although Domino count Villagers’ Where Have You Been All My Life? as the honorary inaugural Document in all but name.
In The Same Room – to be released March 31 – is named after a song from Holter’s 2012 album Ekstasis, and this new career-spanning collection is the fruit of two days recording by Julia and her tremendous band (Corey Fogel – drums/vocals; Dina Maccabee – viola/vocals and Devin Hoff – stand-up bass) at RAK Studios in the days after their main stage performance at Green Man Festival in Wales.
Having already shared a re-working of So Lillies (originally on Tragedy), Holter is pleased to share a new version of Loud City Song track Horns Surrounding Me.
