The Root / Range On Castle
Kim Deal & Morgan Nagler

7/10 according to our Clinton on 16th April 2014

Always got plenty of time for Kim Deal. While her former band name gets dragged through the dirt, Kim is having fun playing with a bunch of people and releasing these nice 7” records of the results. This one is more collaborative than ever as Kim shares vocals with Whispertown singer Morgan Nagler. As a result I just can’t ge…view full details.

You're An Art Soul
Cavern of Anti-Matter

8/10 according to our Clinton on 24th April 2014

Its the third Cavern of At Matter record in a week so I won’t drone on and on. As you perhaps know by now this is Tim Gane (Stereolab) with another Stereolab pal Joe Dilworth and a German lad. This is a limited edition (to just 320) 3 tracker that you’ll want if you like…view full details.

Blood Drums
Cavern of Anti-Matter

9/10 according to our Mike on 24th April 2014

One of my review highlights of last week was the bargain-priced Cavern of Anti-Matter 12" on Deep Distance which features 45 minutes of freeform kosmische synth jamming from the Stereolab-related trio. Fast forward to this week and they've got two more records out on two entirely separate labels, the most exciti…view full details.

Are You Mine / Wish I Was
Kim Deal

8/10 according to our Clinton on 28th November 2013

Although I’ve not been quite as blown away by Kim Deal’s recent 7” series than some around here these are still a special collection of songs and, of course, highly collectable. This is the third in the series, and is very similar to the others in style in that it's a folky, twinkly affair with lyrics which immediately …view full details.

Rosy
The FLK / Marry Waterson

8/10 according to our Mike on 17th April 2014

Mysterious post-folk experimentalists The FLK (definitely nothing to do with the KLF since you were wondering) have a new 7”! Fans of their last CD, and I know there are a lot of you, get the chequebooks out now. As previously, this is folk music repurposed in weird and modern ways. This time round they ta…view full details.

Drop
Thee Oh Sees

9/10 according to our Li'l Biz on 11th April 2014

Hi. Below is some information regarding the new Oh Sees album - listen up. ‘Drop’ is a John Dwyer Oh Sees record, as with previous non-band outings like ‘Castlevania’ and such, yet it also sounds like a complete band outing which is reassuring. Sadly there’s no Brigid, no Petey (Dammit!) and no Mike whi…view full details.

Austerity Dogs
Sleaford Mods

10/10 according to our Nathon on 16th November 2013

Months ago, back when I first started seeing this album on this site, I had it judged by its cover, title and band name. "Brilliant," I thought, "more wannabe 'Mod' twats selling that line about how important it is in working class culture to wear a sharp coat." Fully expecting it to contain the latest forgettable rehash of crappy Mod nostalgia,…view full details.

Young Alaska
Christian Loffler

9/10 according to our Clinton on 17th April 2014

New one from the German producer reviewed in war-like conditions in the middle of the office with chuntering going on round my ears. The first track that rises above the cacophony is ‘Mt Grace’, the second track on the record where Loffler marries some neat electronics to a stretched out vocal sample which reminds me of something …view full details.

8/10 according to our Mike on 17th April 2014

‘80s soundtrack loving dude Umberto is back this week with the full-length 12-minute version of ‘The Child’ which appeared in an edited form on his debut. A right old doozy it is too, a labyrinthine passage of cold disco beats and John Carpenter synths which will delight any fans of …view full details.

Finite World EP
Maia

8/10 according to our Clinton on 16th April 2014

Huddersfield’s Maia seem to do tremendously well amongst folk-loving sorts yet as yet remain relatively unheard of above sea level. Their previous album was a technicolour smorgasboard of sounds veering a little too closely towards disco-folk at times yet a number of extremely strong psychedelic folk pop songs saw it through. Onto …view full details.

Virgins
Tim Hecker

7/10 according to our Clinton on 11th October 2013

Virgins? I wonder what virgins have to do with this sonic soup? Hecker released an album a couple of years back called ‘Dropped Pianos’  - a phrase which kind of sums up the second track here, the spiralling-off-the-rails-maelstrom of ‘Virginal1’. It begins with the sound of a piano tumbling down a never-endi…view full details.

Busy Earnin'
Jungle

9/10 according to our Mike on 15th April 2014

Who are Jungle? The press release tells me there are two of them, sometimes expanding to a seven-piece live band, but I genuinely have no idea if any of these people photographed on the sleeve are actually playing any of the music on the record. It's a bit confusing. These guys impressed me with their last 7" though, and this new one isn't disap…view full details.

Mr. Jolly Fucker / Tweet Tweet Tweet
Sleaford Mods

9/10 according to our Ian on 16th January 2014

As you may know,  Nottingham’s finest Jason Williamson and Andrew Fearn aka Sleaford Mods have been creating a bit of a stir here at Norman HQ recently, it’s safe to say that these lads are definitely Marmite. This is a double A-side of two tracks that don’t feature on their ‘Austerity Dogs’ album so if…view full details.

Woods

8/10 according to our Li'l Biz on 11th April 2014

It’s unlikely Woods will ever make an unlistenable or bad album, I just can’t see it happening. Generally, when reviewing Woods it’s just a matter of assessing whether Jeremy Earl and the lads maintain their typically high standards from release to release. I think they go from strength to strength and though evolution isn&rsqu…view full details.

Brighton’s Fear of Men drop their debut LP this week, an ambitious and sprawling piece which takes in elements of dreampop, coldwave and minimal indie rock for a delicately formed pop aesthetic which will appeal to fans of Broadcast and the Cocteau Twins and …view full details.
