Western Edges
Prowess

Listen up, Normanites, this is something you’ll want to hear: Western Edges is the new project from Richard Adams of Hood, The Declining Winter, and Memory Drawings. Prowess, the project's debut, sees him exploring the world of ambient and electronic music and is comparable to bvdub, Aphex Twin and the beatless bits of Boards of Canada. It also soundtracks the area around Saltaire...and we love Saltaire here at Normans!  It is his third release on Sound Is Silence following two albums in 2015 by The Declining Winter and Great Panoptique Winter. 

Hood
British Radars

The lo-fi indie crew known as Hood originally wanted British Radars to be released as a a 7” in 1994, but nothing came of it. In 2015 however, these 6 tracks have indeed been pressed to vinyl, in a limited edition! Several alternate versions dragged up from the archives, very exciting for Hood heads. On Acuarela.

Hood
Cold House

One of the best albums of the 2000s. The hitherto lo-fi (ish) Leeds collective had already been straying into more drifty pastoral areas when, pretty much out of the blue, came this album in which modernist electronics collided with melancholic song craft and leftfield hip-hop courtesy of cLOUDDEAD who appear on three tracks. An absolute favourite in these parts.

The Declining Winter
Belmont Slope

No one evokes the emotional atmospheres of Northern England quite like Richard Adams, so thank God he's made Belmont Slope, a musical fable about the M62. Mysterious and muffled, he returns under his Declining Winter moniker to detail further secrets hiding in Yorkshire's soil and concrete. If it's anything like the magnificent Home for Lost Souls, it should deliver intimate pop gems influenced by his favourite stay-at-home songwriters -- while occasionally reaching for the expanse of old band Hood.

Hood
Compilations 1995-2002

The second of the CD collections of all the various bits of Wetherby's finest. This one collects all the tracks that appeared on split singles, compilations etc during their long history and remarkably despite it's diversity from lo-fi pop to electronics to rhythmic post rock the collection stands up pretty well as a standalone LP.

Hood
Singles Compiled

Preposterous 59 track double CD of all the bands mid-era singles on a variety of labels such as Earworm and 555. Ranges wildly from lo-fi pop to electronica to field recordings to blissed out pastoralism. Contains 15 previously unreleased tracks.  A must for any discerning fan of the Wetherby based band.

Hood
Rustic Houses, Forlorn Valleys

'Rustic Houses, Forlorn Valleys' was Hood's first album for Domino following on from their two earlier lo-fi albums for Slumberland. It announced a drastic departure in their sound from the previous inventive indie to a less noisy, more tranquil approach that haunted the edges of post-rock. These six lengthy songs spread over 40+ minutes are full of bucolic beauty and draw comparisons to Bark Psychosis, Talk Talk, Mogwai and Pygmalion-era Slowdive.

Hood
The Cycle of Days and Seasons

Hood's fourth full-length album and their second for Domino Records. This one sees them deconstructing their songwriting with a dub-inflected sound incorporating decaying tape loops, found samples and half-speed beats alongside their usual gentle guitars and hushed vocals. Co-produced by Matt Elliott (Third Eye Foundation) and Richard Formby (Ghostpoet, Wild Beasts), 'The Cycle of Days and Seasons' is a sonic collage of late-night post-rock and dub atmospheres.

Memory Drawings
Phantom Lights

Very limited edition tour CD from this Anglo/American collective featuring members of Hood, Brave Timbers and Manyfingers. 'Phantom Lights' is like an annexe to the their earlier 'The Nearest Exit' album featuring several brand new tracks alongside a remix by Barnaby Carter. Dulcimer-led, rhythmic post rock, folk and neo-classical that sits in a unique place within those genres.   

Memory Drawings
The Nearest Exit

Third album from the Anglo/American collective Memory Drawings, featuring members of Hood, Manyfingers, Brave Timbers and Movietone. Pushing their exquisite dulcimer/guitar/violin sound deeper into the heart of post-rock (with nods towards Bark Psychosis and Tortoise courtesy of the polyrhythmic playing of newly-joined drummer Chris Cole) these beautiful cinematic compositions perfectly soundtrack the onset of autumn. All versions include a bonus remix album featuring Isnaj Dui, Edward Ka-Spel, Robert Rich, Leaf Library, and more.

Northern Exchange
The Loveliest Lanes We Knew

Northern Exchange were a short-lived duo, operating from either side of the Pennines. They only put together one EP in their time, with three short tracks, and here it is. The Loveliest Lanes We Knew is a sweet set of songs, made with minimal means and (apparently) a deep love of Young Marble Giants. A short but sweet career, captured in full on a 3” CDr. On Rural Colours.
