Domino are immensely proud to announce the signing of my bloody valentine, with new physical editions of the band’s seminal catalogue being made available. ‘Isn’t Anything’ and ‘loveless’ have been mastered fully analogue for deluxe LPs and also mastered from new hi-res uncompressed digital sources for standard LPs, with each being made available widely for the first time ever. Fully analogue cuts of ‘m b v’ will also be available on deluxe and standard LPs globally for the first time.
my bloody valentine, the quartet of Bilinda Butcher, Kevin Shields, Deb Googe and Colm Ó Cíosóig, are widely revered as one of the most ground-breaking and influential groups of the past forty years. During an era in which guitar bands denoted, at best, a retroclassicism, not only did my bloody valentine sound unlike any of their contemporaries, the band achieved the rare feat of sounding like the future.
The second my bloody valentine album, ‘loveless’, was released in 1991. Musically, it took an unexpected leap forwards, standing ahead of anything released at the time. Shields and the band moved further towards a music of pure sensation, creating textures and tones that could be felt as much as heard; with ‘loveless’ the band created an album that overwhelmed the senses. ‘loveless’ is widely considered a flawless whole and rightly regarded as a masterpiece; a 1990s equivalent to ‘Pet Sounds’, ‘In A Silent Way’ or ‘Innervisions’, a record constructed by exploring the edges of what a recording studio is capable of. It is a record best experienced as a whole, in one sitting - a listening experience like no other and unmatchable in its sonic brevity.
