Manifesto: Simply put, the label has no set ideology, no slogans across the wall. It just seeks to release and promote records by artists that appeal to the Domino team’s likes.
A&R Philosophy: Again, Domino adheres to no set rules as to what it’s looking for – only the undefinable quotient of “Is it good?” and “Do they like it?”
Upcoming: Argentinean singer Juana Molina’s U.S. debut, Segundo, is out in July, and Four Tet and Manitoba are currently on the road. Check out www.fourtet.net and www.manitoba.fm for dates and cities.
