After a lengthy absence following the release of their 2013 debut album ‘If You Leave’, Elena Tonra and Daughter have returned to announce their second album for 4AD / Glassnote Records. ‘Not to Disappear’ is slated to drop on the 15th of January 2016.
Along with the album announcement, the band have revealed the promo video for ‘Doing the Right Thing’. The song itself seems like a good indicator of the next great chapter to the Daughter story, with Tonra’s yearning vocals and the band’s alternately minimalist and bombastic instrumentation framing the poignant story all too familiar to families today that matches well with the lyrics and title of the song. Watch the video below.
Past coverage of Daughter on TGTF is this way.

One of the bookies’ current favourites for a 2015 Mercury Prize nomination for his debut solo album ‘In Colour’, Jamie xx has a new video this week out for ‘I Know There’s Gonna Be’. It features the vocal talents of American hip hop artist Young Thug and Jamaican dancehall artist Popcaan.
The promo starts serenely enough, with beautiful views over a city by the water, and then it turns into a dance floor banger. You’d expecting nothing less from Jamie xx, though, am I right? Watch it below. ‘In Colour’ is out now on Beggars imprint Young Turks.
Spanish garage rock band Hinds will play a run of live dates in the UK next February, following the release of their debut full-length album ‘Leave Me Alone’, which is due out on the 8th of January via Lucky Number.

In case you missed it – and if you have, I guess you don’t listen to BBC 6 Music much! – Elbow’s beardy frontman and all around cuddly Mancunian teddy bear Guy Garvey announced earlier this month that he will be releasing a solo album next month. ‘Courting the Squall’ is due to drop on the 30th of October on Polydor Records.
‘Angela’s Eyes’ was the first taster of Garvey’s solo work that was released to the wild, and Carrie reviewed it for us here on TGTT last week. The single now has an accompanying promo video that is every bit as smoky and bluesy as the song itself. I have to admit I wasn’t expecting this direction at all from The Garvinator, but I suppose he wanted to do something different! Watch the video for ‘Angela’s Eyes’ below.
Who knows where Guy Garvey’s solo career will go, and it will take some time before we build up an archive of posts on him solo here at TGTF. In the meantime though, you’re welcome to peruse our pretty massive back archive of posts on Elbow here.

Presumably to talk up her current North American tour – she played the Royale in Boston last night – Lianne La Havas has revealed this live video from a performance in Germany this past summer. In it, the BBC Sound of 2012 alum (a vision of loveliness in green leopard print) and her band perform ‘Green & Gold’, a pretty chill track from her current album ‘Blood’, at Grünspan in Hamburg. Watch the live performance below.
The singer/songwriter’s second album ‘Blood’ is available now from Warner Brothers. You can catch all of TGTF’s past coverage of Lianne La Havas through this link.
