Semper Satago

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tim Sendra
Domino Records established itself as one of the premier indie labels and the 2005 Semper Satago shows why. The lineup of bands on the label is knock-down impressive and ranges from world-beaters like Franz Ferdinand and Clinic to obscure geniuses like Juana Molina and James Yorkston & the Athletes, with loads of worthy groups and artists in between. Listening to the collection, one is struck by the lack of a defining label sound or even a clear identity. Instead they just seem to collect bands that sound good to them. How else can you reconcile the country noise of Sons and Daughters with the smooth electro-pop of the Junior Boys or the gutter blues of the Archie Bronson...

The lineup of bands on the label is knock-down impressive and ranges from world-beaters like Franz Ferdinand and Clinic to obscure geniuses like Juana Molina and James Yorkston & the Athletes, with loads of worthy groups and artists in between. Listening to the collection, one is struck by the lack of a defining label sound or even a clear identity. Instead they just seem to collect bands that sound good to them. How else can you reconcile the country noise of Sons and Daughters with the smooth electro-pop of the Junior Boys or the gutter blues of the Archie Bronson Outfit or the glittering techno rock of the Notwist? All credit goes to an adept A&R staff with golden ears. Their first label compilation features mostly tracks from albums but also picks up a few semi-rarities like Clinic's brief "Nicht" taken from the flip of the Magician 7," the Jay Dee mix of Four Tet's "As Serious as Your Life" from the 12" single of the same name, and Franz Ferdinand's "Love & Destroy" taken from the Michael CD-5 single. An indie rock collection this steady and challenging is pretty rare; that it all comes from one label is pretty darn amazing.
