Thought Gang
Thought Gang

So who are Thought Gang then? Well just David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti that's all. The duo have of course worked together for many years, most famously on the Twin Peaks soundtrack but here they move away slightly from the cool jazz and cinematic sounds of earlier collaborations towards...view item »

Low
Double Negative

Two years on from the excellent Ones and Sixes Low have headed back down Highway 53 to Eau Claire to resume work with producer B.J. Burton (Bon Iver, James Blake) on an album which is said to be an unflinching eleven track quest to be loud, abrasive and commanding. A Low recor...view item »

The Declining Winter
Belmont Slope

No one evokes the emotional atmospheres of the North quite like Richard Adams, so thank god he's made Belmont Slope, a musical fable about the M62. Mysterious and muffled, he returns with his Declining Winter moniker to detail further secrets hiding in the Yorkshire soil. If it's anything l...view item »

The Fall
I Am Kurious Oranj

Like most Fall albums, this one contains filler, but the strong material is lethal. From the steamroller opening track "New Big Prinz" to the surprisingly pretty instrumental "Overture From 'I am Curious, Orange'" amusingly pockmarked by Brix' ejaculations, to the disturbing "Jerusalem" to the vintage Fall "Wrong Place, Right Time" to the Fall's...view item »

Jóhann Jóhannsson
Mandy (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

The horror film Mandy, directed by Panos Cosmatos and starring Nicholas “Not the bees” Cage, was the late Jóhann Jóhannsson’s final film score commission. Easily as equipped to convey the intense unease required of a horror film soundtrack as the pathos of its more melancholy stages, JJ a...view item »

Aphex Twin
Collapse EP

With mysterious artwork appearing everywhere from Turin to Kippax - on people's coffee cups, on the back of tea towels, on the last sheets of loo paper - it's that time again: a new Aphex Twin marketing campaign. Which means only one thing - new music from the maverick electronic producer. This time, a 12" issued with bizarre sp...view item »

Qujaku
Qujaku

Qujaku are a Japanese band who are building themselves a serious reputation as heavyweight guitar-wielders, working with a psych sound with all airy lightness stripped away in favour of super-taut bass power. Qujaku has been imported all the way from Japan’s So I Buried Records just so you can get blasted by it: c...view item »

Sufjan Stevens
Songs For Christmas

Speaking of box sets our old SUFJAN STEVENS has been well busy as we have a 5 CD box set in this week. Apparently the sentimental chap releases a Christmas EP each year and Rough Trade/ Asthmatic Kitty have collected them together for a limited box set release type thing (in time for xmas). Loads of carols...view item »

Bauhaus
The Sky’s Gone Out

Reissue of The Sky’s Gone Out, Bauhaus’ 1982 third album. With tracks like ‘Exquisite Corpse’ and ‘The Three Shadows’ (in three parts), ...view item »

BEAK>
>>>

Beak’s third album, >>>, follows on from > and >>. Does this show a lot or very little imagination when it comes to naming albums? Anyway, the classy electronic three-piece who are led by Portishead’s Geoff Barrow have taken another step forward and their sound grows along with the stages they’re invited to pl...view item »

Jungle
For Ever

Jungle is massive. Jungle is unstoppable. Jungle For Ever. The posh soul duo have swapped the townhouses of Shepherd’s Bush for the penthouses of Los Angeles in a bid to be more … something. To be honest, this - their second album - just sounds like the first one. It’s another helping of blue-eyed fun...view item »

Bauhaus
Burning From The Inside

Reissue of 1983’s Burning From The Inside, the fourth and final album made by Bauhaus in their original incarnation before their split that same year. Illness meant l...view item »

Bauhaus
In The Flat Field

The best thing about this album is not what it sounds like, but what it doesn't. Leave your preconceptions about goth at the door, Bauhaus are at heart a post-punk band with a diverse range of influences. In a way, it's a shame that Bauhaus' work spawned a genre that has been burdened with so many stereotypes, and these do neither the album nor ...view item »

TOY
The Willo / Energy

Two new songs from Toy, working in two fairly different styles. It's a double A-side release, so each track deserves equal prominence. ‘The Willo’ is a remarkably spaced-out seven minute number, with organ and acoustic guitar prominent. While &lsq...view item »

Sandra Kerr & John Faulkner
The Music From Bagpuss

Hello all 40+ somethings out there. You'll remember big saggy 70s cloth cat Bagpuss from your favourite childhood television show and the beautifully constructed folk soundtrack it snored around? Brings back memories doesn't it? Well the soundtrack actually works as a lovely album even without the nostalgia associated with the cat and now you ca...view item »

Spiritualized
And Nothing Hurt

The new Spiritualized album really is just the work of one man, Jason Pierce, who wrote and recorded the album on a laptop in a small room in his east London home. Yet Pierce is so meticulous that he found a way of making the record sound like a studio session, and only things bigger than he could get up his stairwell were recor...view item »

Sleaford Mods
Sleaford Mods EP

First new music from Sleaford Mods since 2017's English Tapas and as is their wont it's a five track EP ahead of a promised new LP next March. A bunch of things to tie you over all about people's anger with the political system and the slow descent into slanging matches. Always on the ball it's nice to have them back. They may l...view item »

Chris Carter

Chris Carter the Throb Grist wizard has collected some of his best solo work on this exquisite box set. You get the following albums plus a booklet of unseen images (mainly of synthesizers):- Mondo Beat (1985) – clear vinylDisobedient (1998) – double purple vinyl, includes new track 'Disobedient Redux'Small Moon (...view item »

Felt
Forever Breathes The Lonely Word

The first Felt album for Creation and the first not to feature guitar wizard Maurice Deebank. Forever Breathes the Lonely Word is kind of a bridge album between their old sound and the lighter more varied work in the second half of the eighties. As a result of Deebank's departure Martin Duffy's organ takes centre stage, wanderin...view item »

Sauna Youth
Deaths

Sauna Youth’s third album, Deaths, mixes a whole lotta genres into their punk sound. The London-based group forced a deadline on themselves by booking the studio time before anything was written. This meant the creative process was turned on its head and time limits meant whichever band members could make it to sessions ea...view item »

J Mascis
Elastic Days

J Mascis writes a new album, a new album writes J Mascis. Elastic Days is his third solo studio LP away from the daily grind of being in Dinosaur Jr. As with previous albums Several Shades Of Why and Tied To A Star, this one finds The World's Slacker Dad focussing on the acoustic side ...view item »

Villagers
The Art of Pretending to Swim

The return of ol' wobble voice, Conor O' Brien has sat and made this latest Villagers record all by himself in his Dublin studio. Despite this lonesome pursuit, it's an album that adds all kinds of sonic detail and soulfulness to his songwriting resulting in possibly his most accessible music to date. There's an indie's only red...view item »

Bauhaus
Press the Eject and Give Me the Tape

Live actions from Bauhaus circa 1981 -1982, compiled from a variety of shows from Paris to Liverpool. Press the Eject and Give Me the Tape features all the best ...view item »

Bauhaus
Mask

I hate the term Goth. It just lumps everyone who wears black into the same brooding category. By that definition Avril Levine is Goth. Bauhaus is much more than the sum of its parts. With sparse atmospheric guitars, haunting vocals and syncopated rhythms Bauhaus has one foot in the graveyard and the other in the land of Ziggy Stardust. With a pa...view item »

Susumu Yokota
Acid Mt.Fuji

Originally released on Sublime Records (Marc Romboy, Captain Funk) in 1994, Susumu Yokota’s Acid Mt.Fuji is reissued as a double-vinyl by Midgar. This is nicely-calibrated electronica that veers from squeaky Rephlex-aping techno (...view item »

Gazelle Twin
Pastoral

Gazelle Twin is an artist, musician, and uh.. Adidas model? Her new album Pastoral continues the fascination the current wave of English psychedelic musicians has with the English countryside and the rot within. These tales are told through twisted electronics and Gazelle Twin's own mangled vocals. ...view item »

Thom Yorke
Suspiria (Music for the Luca Guadagnino Film)

It's true then. Thom Yorke is soundtracking Luca Guadagnino's reimagining of the 1977 Dario Argento horror flick. And here is as much proof as you'd need. The soundtrack is a mix of score work, interludes and some actual normal songs featuring Thom singing. If you are a Radiohead fan you should be excited. ...view item »

Yves Tumor
Safe In The Hands of Love

Safe In the Hands of Love was first released in fragments; from the single ‘Noid’ being labelled Pitchfork’s Best New Track, to the release of a Daniel Sannwald-directed video ‘Licking An Orchid (ft James K)’ to Zane Lowe premiering ‘Lifetime’ on Beats 1. 24 hours later, the whole album is laid ...view item »

Mutual Benefit
Thunder Follows The Light

In his Mutual Benefit guise, NYC singer-songwriter Jordan Lee has recorded with artists like Julie Byrne and covered Vashti Bunyan’s Just Another Diamond Day in full. Safe to say that you can go into his latest full-length Thunder Follows The Light expecting a light touch...view item »

Bauhaus
Crackle

All the essentials are here ("Bela Lugosi's Dead", "She's In Parites", etc.). However, their producers missed an opportunity to make a perfect Bauhaus collection. Certainly they have made enough great songs to fill one disk. Still, there's a lot of good stuff here and I would recommend this as a good starting place. Those new to Bauhaus really n...view item »

Throbbing Gristle
Heathen Earth

Here it is! The stupendous monolithic mother of 'em all! TG's 'Heathen Earth' remastered and reissued in all it's menacing glory. Everything about the record just ticks every box for me, from the cover art bearing the number twenty three and the Charles Manson "Can the world be as sad ...view item »

Christine and The Queens
Chris

Héloïse Letissier is back with a new album as Christine and The Queens! The French singer-songwriter now gives us 'Chris' as the follow-up album to 2014's 'Chaleur Humaine' which took France by storm and sold shedloads (millions, actually) just about everywhere else; including here at your humble Norman, in an expand...view item »

Lonnie Holley
MITH

The legendary Lonnie Holley returns with Mith. It's an album filled with righteous fire aimed at the chaos and injustice of American life. His impassioned spoken word delivery gives topics like Standing Rock and Black Lives Matter the weight they deserve. As does the beefy instrumentation: wild dr...view item »

The Lucid Dream
Actualisation

The Lucid Dream put their bad luck (their gear was all stolen in Paris in 2017) firmly behind them with fourth album Actualisation, a record that could not have come to be without some great fan support. The album works some big acid house vibes into the group’s general big psychedelia, as well as some delightful ...view item »

Kurt Vile
Bottle It In

Well here's something rather exciting - a brand new album from melody-drenched longhair Kurt Vile. Thirteen new songs from the prolific troubadour to add to his storied back catalogue of laid back, stoned-out, gently rocking things. This time he's been inspired by travel and the exciting life experiences touring gives but also t...view item »

The Beta Band
The Three EPs (20th Anniversary Remaster) [Deluxe Edition]

Noted for *that* moment in High Fidelity when the guy in the store says "let's sell some records" and puts a Beta Band track on and people start wandering up to the counter to find out what it is. It's a reminder that the early the Beta Band was a good thing - their reputation is based on these three early EPs. The fact that the...view item »

Elysian Spring
Glass Flower

French jazz from the late sixties is an underappreciated niche. Mais pas ici at Norman Records. Imagine the heartfelt joy we felt when our kind amis at Le Très Jazz Club announced their repressing of Elysium Spring’s cult classic, Glass Windows. Finally, these soft and gentle jazz...view item »

The Goon Sax
We're Not Talking

The junior to The Go-Betweens' senior, this very good band features Louis Forster, son of Robert, probably none too happy about this endless comparison, but I just really like the word junior so was compelled to namedrop. They released a real Norman beloved record in Up t...view item »

Oh Sees
Smote Reverser

Seemingly incapable of stopping making music for one second, this is Oh Sees 6th album in the last three years if you include Thee Oh Sees and OCS in that tally. Yet Dwyer keeps pushing forward with his double drum line up with all kinds of alumni making guest appearances. Expect more scorching psych but this time with a heavy p...view item »

The Durutti Column
M24J (Anthology)

The Durutti Column were Tony Wilson’s first signing to Factory Records, and remained an understated constant throughout the label’s existence and beyond. Vini Reilly’s minimal, mostly instrumental arrangements, fluid guitar playing and gentle introversion were ...view item »

Mush
Gig Economy

Leeds band Mush have been have been on somewhat of an upward trajectory of late. BBC 6 Music’s Marc Riley loved their last single, Alt Facts and they’ve been supporting bands such as Rolling Blackouts CF, Parquet Courts and Ultra Spacek. Their new single, Gig Economy...view item »

Harmony Rockets with Special Guest Peter Walker
Lachesis / Clotho / Atropos

epic45
Through Broken Summer

It's only a new record from Epic45, my favourite Staffordshire-based post-indie rock band. I can only imagine how beautiful Through Broken Summer will be if their other albums are to go by. You can already hear the calming, yet oddly satisfying sound permeating through your brain, melting your very core. Available on vi...view item »

Arve Henriksen
The Height Of The Reeds

In a work specially commissioned for Hull City of Culture 2017, Arve Henriksen relates to the love-affair-on-the-waves between Scandinavia and the hitherto unheralded Yorkshire port-town on The Height Of The Reeds. Composed alongside Elvind Aarset and Jan Bang, the music accompanied a sound walk last ye...view item »

Waxahatchee
Great Thunder

Katie Crutchfield returns with a mini album of recordings she started whilst making her previous albums Cerulean Salt and Ivy Tripp. These were more experimental jams recorded with a collective called Great Thunder that is no longer active. Fascinated by the material Crutchfield took it into the studio and reworked it resulting in a strippe...view item »

Mark McGuire
Vision Upon Purpose

Great 90s style early day graphic design on this. This is the guy from Emeralds I mixed up with Steve Hauschildt last week. This is the one that does play guitar and makes stuff perfect to soundtrack an aerial helicopter-eye view of a golf course. Mastered by the genius that is James Plotkin. Th...view item »

Sudden Infant
Buddhist Nihilism

How could I not reference the press release here? "SUDDEN INFANT is a Swiss Industrial-Dada-Noise-Rock band based in Berlin". How bad-ass does that make this band sound? Buddhist Nihilism is the latest release from SUDDEN INFANT and contains 12 explosive tracks that, like the records before this (see Radiorgasm...view item »

Robert Rental
Different Voices For You, Different Colours For Me. Demos 1980

The late Robert Rental laid down this little album at his flat in Battersea throughout 1980. Bar two tunes being re-recorded for a Mute single late in the year, the bulk of the tracks that make up Different Voices For You, Different Voices For Me have been on a cassette, gathering dust. Now the goo...view item »

Olan Mill
Curves

Olan Mill's Alex Smalley made his new album 'Curves' before and after his trip to Myanmar at the tail end of 2016. At the time, Smalley was looking forward to becoming a father and moving to Germany; it therefore chronicles a story of personal upheaval with all the feelings you'd expect to come with such milestone events. Built ...view item »

Dead Can Dance
Dionysus

Neo-hippy and alternative stoner sweethearts Dead Can Dance are finally back with their first new album in six years. I’m sure you won’t be surprised to learn that Dionysus is about reaching a state of trance, about spiritual journeys, about combining musical folk traditions from all across the world....view item »

Stereolab
Aluminum Tunes

This is the third in the series of three Stereolab singles compilations that have now been re-issued on clear vinyl LPs. It covers the years 1995-1998 and rounds up all the EPs and split singles and compilations the band produced. They were very prolific indeed and also ahead of the time. Everyone does kraut-pop now but Stereola...view item »

Throbbing Gristle
20 Jazz Funk Greats

For all their reputation as “wreckers of civilisation”, by 1979 the original industrial quartet had gotten some of the confrontation out of their system and were exploring a wider range of expression. Chris and Cosey were getting more into their electronics, evident on the pure electropop of Hot on the Heels of Love ...view item »

Teleman
Family of Aliens

London indie four-piece, defined by two neat haircuts and two less neat, Teleman follow-up 2016’s Brilliant Sanity with their third studio Album, Family of Aliens. Known for their smart lyrics, carefree guitar work and earworm-ready melodies, Family of Aliens finds them adding electronic shades to their sound. Limited edit...view item »

Interpol
Marauder

A baker’s dozen of tunes from the mid-2000s indie bands who have grown old with the most grace. Marauder’s lead single ‘The Rover’ kind of sounds like Preoccupations having a go at covering ‘Mr. Blue Sky’, and in its own way it’s a charming post-punk ditty. They should have...view item »

Mountain Man
Magic Ship

In this, the age of instant content, an eight year gap between album can prove utterly deadly. Fortunately for us Mountain Man were able to survive such a gulf to bring us Magic Ship. As on their debut, this is an album which celebrates not just the voice, but voices. The genius of A...view item »

Shawty Pimp
Still Comin' Real

Thanks to European label Gyptology Records, we can now lay our hands on a first-time vinyl edition of Shawty Pimp's cult 1995 cassette 'Still Comin' Real'. This limited-edition LP showcases 11 raw rap cuts from the Memphis, Tennessee hotbed of hip-hop in the '90s. A gloriously lo-fi album showcasing Pimp's unique vocal deli...view item »

The Chills
Snow Bound

I've just danced around the room and celebrated as if I'd won the World Cup as there's a new the Chills album due. The legendary New Zealand group returned in 2015 with the excellent Silver Bullets which was as good as anything they recorded in their heyday. Their precise yet emotional economic pop is certainly wel...view item »

Throbbing Gristle
Journey Through A Body

Why does the name of this band hurt my teeth?  Journey Through A Body is a purposely recorded piece of art by Throbbing Gristle for an Italian radio way back in the good ol' days.

Pixies
Come On Pilgrim... It's Surfer Rosa

Well there's no doubt that these are two of The Most Important Indie Rock Records Of All Time. Both are absolutely exceptional, in particular 'Surfer Rosa' which pretty much turned everything I knew on its head in my teenage years. 30 years after the event we get this luxury box set of both records plus a live show from the era. No new demos or ...view item »

Emma Ruth Rundle
On Dark Horses

Oh I do love an Emma Ruth Rundle mystery. This week's instalment sees our intrepid sleuth come out of a personal nadir by moving home, getting a new friend and making a new album with other friends. This is heart on sleeve stuff, uncomfortable realties put to music in dark duets that recall Johnny and June.  ...view item »

Soap And Skin
From Gas to Solid / you are my friend

Third album from inexplicable Austrian chart topper Soap&Skin. I say inexplicable not because the music is bad, far from it, but because this is clearly not 'pop' music. From Gas to Solid / you are my friend is an album of sparse gothic beauty, which explores Anja Plaschg's sense of self as sh...view item »

Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs
King of Cowards

Not again! Rocket Recordings left the sty gate open and now as many as seven Pigses are off trotting about the place. Aye, that’s seven pigs, a theme of the seven deadly sins, six riffing, Nu Manchu bangers and one city, Newcastle, where this style is currently enjoying quite a revival. Trivia: the album was mostly written...view item »

James Holden + Maalem Houssam Guinia
Three Live Takes

What a combo: Maalem Houssam Guinia and James Holden; Moroccan Gnawa and modular synth. Three Live Takes presents us with three live cuts from a 2016 London performance, with these two very different sound palettes somehow combining into a coherent new sound-world. 12” out on Border Community....view item »

Heavenly Music Corporation

Flat Worms
The Apparition / Melt The Arms

Flat Worms are as close to a garage-rock supergroup as you can get. The LA trio features members of Oh Sees, Dream Boys and Kevin Morby’s band. This single, the first new thing they've done since last year's eponymous LP for Castle Face, was also prod...view item »

Julia Holter
Aviary

It may well be difficult to think of a record more expansive than Julia Holter's 2015 opus 'Have You In My Wilderness' but it seems like 'Aviary' might just do it. This 15 song record explores the feeling of cacophony we feel on living in the modern world and a search for solitude and sweetness. Holter's theatrical vocals and cinematic synth wor...view item »

Richard Dawson
Peasant

The new album from Richard Dawson is a notable new epic from the Tyneside master, featuring more guest musicians than ever before. Peasant’s songs are all set in the pre-medieval north-east, with each title naming a figure: ‘Weaver’, ‘Herald’, ‘Beggar’. It’s the most fully...view item »

Way early (1992) compilation release of even earlier Stereolab material: in fact, this is the very earliest Stereolab material there is. Switched On compiles the Super 45 EP, the Super-Electric EP, and the Stunning Debut Album 7”, and for all those rarities this is a pre...view item »

Maribou State
Kingdoms In Colour

Maribou State return with their sophomore LP. The follow-up to 2015’s Portrait is another collection of breezy, emotive electronica that takes in plunderphonics, festival house, post-dubstep and more. Hopping on a trend in this sort of thing at the moment, there seems to be a Bollywood flavour to some of the sampl...view item »

Silver Jews

Is American Water different from UK water?  Find out by buying the 20 year re-issue of this classic album by Silver Jews.

Where is he by the way? We...view item »

Grouper
Dragging A Dead Deer Up A Hill

Liz Harris’ 2008 album proved irresistible to many and is generally considered her defining release. A woozy fog of guitar and vocal, it’s simultaneously intoxicatingly beautiful, yet dark and unsettling. It’s been in and out of print over the years and often frustratingly unavailable, so here it is aga...view item »

Sarah Davachi
Gave In Rest

Proving it's both a marathon and a sprint, drone artist Sarah Davachi puts out yet another record. Hot off the heels of the impressive baroque tone poem Let Night Come On Bells End the Day, Davachi makes the hop to Ba Da Bing! for a record of lonely, isolationist ambient music that refl...view item »

Throbbing Gristle
The Second Annual Report Of Throbbing Gristle (40th Anniversary Edition)

Not in fact their second anything, The Second Annual Report Of Throbbing Gristle, is the band’s now four decade old debut. Though their impact on electronic and industrial music is undeniable, listening to these tracks I’m relieved their needlessly “transgressive” lyrics and imagery have not been so influ...view item »

Grouper
Ruins

'Ruins' is the newest record by drone folk artist Grouper. Recorded in a house near a lost, deserted village in Portugal, under the usual reclusive conditions that Liz Harris writes music, the record is the closest her project has gotten to capturing actual songs, each performed on a piano and recorded immediately to a 4-track. 'Ruins'...view item »

The National
Sleep Well Beast

The National have slowly seeped into our consciousness over the past few years simply by selling truckloads of records and becoming a thing we regularly compare other bands to when at a loss to describe moody rock music.

Sons Of Kemet
Your Queen Is A Reptile

Sons Of Kemet return with their third LP of iconoclastic jazz takes.

Soca, calypso, merengue and more all rumble...view item »

Suede
The Blue Hour

Well. They are back. David Bowie might be dead but Suede are still alive right? So everything is ok.

Expect a lot of wrought songs about being outsiders in suburbi...view item »

Eumig is a project of Nick Dawson, who uses a Moog Sub Phatty, a Microbrute, and other synths to conjure up dense scapes of noise-inflected drone.

Mac-Talla Nan Creag
The Sorrow Of Derdriu

We were a massive fan of Firecracker's first Mac-Talla Nan Craeg release, a record that curve-balled our expectations on the label to release good house bangers via an archaeological dig of Scotland's ancient landscape. One can only assume that participating artists Hoch Ma Toch, Other Lands and Lord Of The Isles have ...view item »

Hiro Kone
Pure Expenditure

On Pure Expenditure, Hiro Kone, real name Nicky Mao, approaches electronic music with a brutal intent not heard since the earliest Factory Floor recordings. This all comes from Pure Expenditure's core theme, the non-utilitarian use of surplus energy. The album features the likes o...view item »

Felt
The Pictorial Jackson Review

The Pictorial Jackson Review is not only brilliantly titled but is one of the best of the latter day Felt records. It's full of wonderfully brief tunes which more often than not sound comically in thrall to Bob Dylan. Try listening to How Spook Got Her Man without thinking of the grizzled troubadour. ...view item »

John Carpenter
Halloween (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Halloween is the latest Classic American Movie to be wrent from the tomb of history and paraded around the cultural flatland that is the Millennial West.
