Husbands
Karlstad EP

As 2018 draws to a close, Box Bedroom Rebels are a label that wants to help you forget all the nonsense that has gone on in the world with a joyful EP of unabashed indie-pop. Oklahoma band Husbands are the people who have made the right record at the right time to conjure up that carefree feeling with Karlstad EP. 7-track 7&rdqu...view item »


Mac DeMarco
Salad Days

Yes its the Return of the Mac. This is Mac De Marco’s third full length record and its safe to say that if you like the first two then you are going to find plenty to swoon over here.  He’s long discarded the pitched down croon he used on the first side of the corking ‘Rock and Roll Nightclub’ debut and has adopted a...view item »


Kate Bush
Aerial

In 2005, Kate Bush returned to recorded music for the first time in 12 years, with the beautiful Aerial. This is her only double album, featuring the two sides ...view item »


Janelle Monae
Dirty Computer

Inventive, trend-bending hip-pop soulsmith Janelle Monáe returns with a host of collaborators for Dirty Computer. Her first album in five years finds her celebrating the spectra of sexuality with rubbery pop - some of which co-written by the late Prince himself. The album also hosts the dulcet to...view item »


New Order
Movement

Movement is a dark, brooding, desperate record that resonates all these years later almost as well as Joy Division's two albums. I hesitate to think of another album that oozes raw emotion as blatantly and tragically. These songs are deftly composed manifestations of the sadness and fear these young men were living, but without a hint of self-in...view item »


New Order
Power, Corruption & Lies

New Order’s second full-length achieves a fine balance between electronic and guitar-based music. While the preceding Movement LP was the work of a band who couldn’t quite shake off the weight of their past as Joy Division, Power, Corruption and Lies and the contemporary Blue Monday 12” saw them define a singul...view item »


Kate Bush
50 Words for Snow

We're reviewing this off a stream of the album (thanks to our sponsors at NPR) as we don't want to open and ruin one of the CD copies. As I mentioned in an earlier review there are lots of winter/christmas themed records out at the moment but this is one that is surely welcomed. Kate as ...view item »


Green Seagull
First Snow of Winter / God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman

Christmas. It's only October and we've started arguing about it already here at Normans. Baroque psychedelic band Green Seagull already have things sorted though with a two song Christmas extravaganza. On the A side an original which talks about the comforts of the festive season (high winds, exhausts, snarl ups etc). Over on th...view item »


Depeche Mode
Some Great Reward | The 12" Singles

Some Great Reward The 12” Singles is a box set featuring various mixes of tracks from Depeche Mode’s 1984 album of the same name. Mixes of People Are People, Master And Servant and Blasphemous Rumours are spread over 6 12” singles and housed in a lovely box. The latter also featu...view item »

The Beatles
Abbey Road

Abbey Road was the penultimate album by The Beatles. It’s predecessor, Let It Be, was all but finished before the recording of Abbey Road began, however, Abbey Road was released first. The album is notable for George Harrison’s songwriting coming to the fore, seven son...view item »


The Beatles
Let It Be

This may not be The Beatles greatest recording moment, but it holds up very well despite all the bashing its gotten over the years. Started January 1969 as Get Back, the original idea was to record an album aux natural with as little of the production values that has graced their latter albums (Sgt Pepper, MMT, The White Album). Although many cr...view item »


Vymethoxy Redspiders
Perspectives from the Silverspore Expanse



Public Service Broadcasting
White Star Liner

40,000 copies sold of their last album.... selling out the Albert Hall? Well our favourite 'putting-bits-of-old-commentary-over-second-rate-post-rock' lot are back with a 4 track EP which you could have got for free by taping off 6 Music when it was broadcast. This time they have turned their attention to that time the Titanic went down. Whateve...view item »


Mary + Stew
You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth

Barely forgivable attempt at the Meatloaf 'classic' by members of Even As we Speak and Boyracer. They slow it down to indie ballad pace and add in some sweet harmonies. Comes on lesser spotted flexi disc with download card in case you actually want to play it without having the needle slide acro...view item »


R. Stevie Moore
Afterlife

R. Stevie moore is the curmudgeonly, misanthropic pioneer of lo-fi and DIY music. His prolificacy puts the likes of Robert Pollard to shame with over 200 self-released albums and 30-odd official releases. He has been working away at his craft, mostly unnoticed, for 50 years. His n...view item »

The Pale Fountains
(There's Always) Something On My Mind

(There’s Always) Something On My Mind was the debut single by The Pale Fountains from 1982. The band was lead by Michael Head who went on to form Shack and make great albums with The Strands and The Red Elastic Band. The A s...view item »


East Village
Cubans In The Bluefields

One of the great forgotten bands of the ‘80s indie scene, East Village, were formed by Buckinghamshire brothers Martin and Paul Kelly. Cubans In The Bluefields was their debut EP. The standout track of the three on offer is Strawberry Window, one of the most perfect slices of indie jangle po...view item »


Roisin Murphy
Overpowered

Overpowered (2007) was the second album by ex-Moloko singer Roisin Murphy. Murphy set out to make a pop/disco album and she succeeded. She took influence from the pre-house sounds of D-Train, Mantronix and Gwen Guthrie, whilst bei...view item »


Snow Patrol
A Hundred Million Suns

‘A Hundred Million Suns’ is the incredible new album from one of the biggest bands in the UK – Snow PatrolThe album was recorded through Summer 2008 in Hansa Studios in Berlin (where Bowie recorded ‘Low’, ‘Heroes’ & ‘Lodger’) and at Grouse Lodge deep in the Irish countryside. ...view item »


Snow Patrol
Eyes Open

Eyes Open was the fourth album by Snow Patrol, coming three years after its predecessor, Final Straw, in 2006. It shifted a lot of copies and was the biggest selling album of the year. The major label boost was really paying off. To make the album extra shiny, U2, Robbie Williams and The Killers p...view item »


Snow Patrol
Fallen Empires

Some hits, some misses. Good songs, but gets a bit same-y after awhile. It's also a little over-produced for my taste. I think that's the culprit in their sound, actually. Trying to make these songs fit a previously successful form and feel. The result is that even though there are plenty of good hooks here, it breaks ZERO new ground. I guess fa...view item »


Snow Patrol
Final Straw

Snow Patrol’s 2003 album Final Straw was their third album, but their first real biggie. Having signed to a major label may have helped with production values and a marketing push, but they were solely responsible for writing some anthemic songs. Run, for example, went stratospheric and unfo...view item »


Tess Parks
Blood Hot

Tess Parks has recently been working closely with Anton Newcombe of The Brian Jonestown Massacre (see this year’s I Declare Nothing), but this release brings us back to her strong and smoky solo debut. Blood Hot was released in 2013, and is now receiving its first vinyl p...view item »


Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2
Star Stuff

Hang on, this back story is so complicated I lost my way at a point way before the record actually got made. Anyway by way of a lost drum stool, a dog and some coffee Chaz Bundick (Toro Y Moi) etc hooked up with psychedelic groove guys Mattson 2 for an album of exploratory pop and psych-tinged jazz moves which o...view item »


Mac DeMarco
Rock And Roll Night Club

Firstly get the boy some make up lessons. What a state he's got himself in on the sleeve of his debut 12”. Titles like 'Rock and Roll Night Club' and 'Baby's Wearing Blue Jeans' suggest some kind of '70s denim nightmare but this is really good. He sounds like the re-incarnation o...view item »


Jenny Hval
The Long Sleep

Jenny Hval has evolved from her origins as the singer of a Norwegian goth metal band in the late ‘90s to become a novelist and creator of arty, experimental and highly acclaimed music. Her new four song EP, The Long Sleep, follows on from her 2016 LP Blood Bitch. It was recorded with Håvard Volden, whom she has worke...view item »


Solange
A Seat At The Table

Solange Knowles’ A Seat at the Table is one not to sleep on for any fans of neo-soul, funk and R&B. Directing an all-star ensemble of contributors including Raphael Saadiq and Sampha, Solange truly realises her vision of an album that explores black womanhood through a self-directed, empowering and contemporary lens....view item »


David Bowie
Hunky Dory

Parlophone reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these nice 180g vinyl versions are being released individually too. Hunky Dory is Bowie’s 1971 triumph, containing several of his most immortal songs, including ‘Changes’ and ‘Life on...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 »


Kate Bush
Remastered in Vinyl III

The third of the Kate Bush Remastered in Vinyl reissue series features three of the great artist’s more recent albums: the triumphantly-returning 2005 double album Aerial, her 2011 reworkings-of-earlier-material collection Director’s Cut, and 50 Words For Snow from the same year. All presented on v...view item »


The 1975
A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships

Extremely (and unfathomably to people over 40) popular group the 1975 return with the thankfully shorter titled follow up to the one with the extremely long title. Who knew that when Tim Healey and Denise Welch got together this would be the result but there we are. That last LP reached number one on both sides of the little pud...view item »


Various
Uneven Paths (Deviant Pop From Europe 1980 - 1991)

Even by the standards of Music From Memory, this is an oddball. Label founder Jamie Tiller gets together with Parisian crate-digger Raphael Top-Secret to comb the annals of 80s/early 90s European music and find the weirdest stuff they can that still has a hint of a pop sensibility about it. Unsu...view item »


Carola Baer
The Story of Valery

Fans of the more ethereal ‘80s 4AD releases, listen up - a cassette of home recordings by Carola Baer was discovered in a US thrift store. The songs, which were recorded in the ‘90s, are fragile with computerised beats that recall The Cocteau Twins and Dead Can Dance. The lo-fi home ...view item »


The Beatles
Rubber Soul

Rubber Soul by The Beatles, released in 1965,  was the follow-up to Help! And, therefore, the second album of theirs to consist entirely of original material. By this time, the band had given up touring and were able to focus all of their energies on recording in the studio. The results are b...view item »


Kaiser Chiefs
Employment

Sometimes, simply down to location, Norman Records gets albums by Leeds bands that you just cannot buy anywhere else…..oh no, hold on, It’s Kaiser Chiefs, I remember now. They were absolutely massive and their singer, Ricky Wilson, is a judge on The Voice Factor now. The Leeds band fl...view item »


Pulp
Different Class

Following the recent renewal of interest in Britpop comes the reissue of Pulp's widely revered 1995 LP 'Different Class'. Pressed onto 180g vinyl, this special issue comes with an insert featuring Cocker's bitingly deft lyrics. Alluding to society and the British class system, 'Different Class' was defiantly of its time, but still resonates toda...view item »


London Grammar
If You Wait

I'm getting very tired of the 'girl next door singing the white blues with loads of reverb' type thing couched in layers of breathy and flimsy soulless melancholy. There's quite a lot of this annoying and insipid 'Birdy' - lite around at the moment. Still the punters seem to lap it up so what do I know? Well I do know that it bores me to tears. ...view item »


First Aid Kit
Stay Gold

The dusky Americana sound belies these two’s Scandinavian upbringing. Originally discovered when they posted their cover of a Fleet Foxes song online, there has since been an avalanche of interest, culminating in this, their third studio album, which from the chunterings I hear on the vine threatens to be ...view item »


The Shins
Oh, Inverted World

Exactly what you never knew you always needed: a fifteen-year-old album reissued on cassette. Maybe you need an extra copy for your car. Maybe you want to give it to somebody who can’t afford a record player. What do we know? Either way, The Shins’ 2001 classic Oh, Inverted World is finally stepping into the...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 »


Sleeper
The Modern Age

No-one thought this would happen, including the band. Sleeper have a new album out. It’s their first in twenty-one years, since the heady days of Britpop, and it’s called The Modern Age. The band used to be made up of three guys and a girl, now they’re made up of a novelist, two ...view item »


Felt
Me And A Monkey On The Moon

The final Felt album saw the band go out on a rather sombre and perhaps disjointed note on an album that somewhat lacked the distinctive creativity of their previous work. That said it shows a hitherto unseen maturity with a slight country-ish feel and is notable by the appearance of pedal steel player B J Cole. ...view item »


Arthur Russell
Another Thought

Here’s the first ever vinyl pressing of Arthur Russell’s ‘Another Thought’, a posthumous collection compiled from 800 tape reels recorded between 1982 and ‘90. What’s immediately surprising is how coherent it sounds as an album. The performances often hushed, sparse and sou...view item »


Kate Bush
Hounds Of Love

Hounds Of Love is one of those LPs that you can end up skipping over because you feel like you already know it too well. In particular ‘Running Up That Hill’, ‘Cloudbusting’ and the title track are all old friends at this point. But here’s the thing - as frequently as you might hear its famous sin...view item »

Disclosure
Moonlight

Critically acclaimed and commercially successful Surrey-based electronic duo, Disclosure delve into previously uncharted waters with their new mini-LP, Moonlight. The tracks are a mix of African rhythms, vocal jazz, disco and deep house - sample based and picked from genres that the pair have always loved, but never recorded. 18...view item »

Chorusgirl
Shimmer and Spin

The 2015 self-titled debut by German/English indie four-piece Chorusgirl was released on Fortuna Pop! and received weighty support from BBC 6 Music. It’s been three years in the making, but they’re back with its follow-up, Shimmer and Spin. Comparisons can be made to Cocteau Tw...view item »

Not With That Attitude

Ok, I’ll admit that I get annoyed when my loaf of bread gets squashed among other grocery items but I’ve never fought milk. London’s Fightmilk take their name from a sketch about an alcoholic milk drink on the US comedy show It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. They have prev...view item »

Depression Cherry

Depression Cherry is Beach House’s fifth album and they return to a more simple, melodic feel while continuing to change their sound as they go.

Suprise! Don’t let the fact that Beach House’s last full-length album Depression Cherry was only released two months ago fool you: they are, nevertheless, back with a new record now!

OK Computer - OKNOTOK 1997-2017

If you happen to be a fan of this album then here’s something you might want to get your mitts on. The whole album remastered plus the B sides from the singles of the time plus the holy grail for Radiohead fans,  three unreleased and long sought after tracks dug out of the vaults. All formats have all the b...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 »

Since 2016, Darren Hayman has been conducting an investigation into the the nuances of rural life in Britain.

WEWANTSOUNDS, they cry! Well now you’ve got them. Happy? Like every third record that has come out in 2018 this album is a reissue of an album that was made in Japan in the 1980s (1981, to be precise). Like all of those reissues, it’s pretty good. Akiko Yano ...view item »

Beyoncé
Lemonade

Steering away from the sheeny chart-leading bangers that made Queen Bey a hegemonic pop power, Lemonade is yet another pioneering reinvention from someone exploring new territory. Risk-taking has become alien from many modern powerhouse artists; but so long as the likes of Beyonce keep us on our toes, th...view item »


Alfie Templeman
Like An Animal EP

At the tender age of 15, it could be said that multi-instrumentalist Alfie Templeman is making music beyond his years. With drum samples and wibbly-wobbly chorused guitar he comes across as a more pop, less weird version of Mac Demarco. Like An Animal is his debut EP. 10” pu...view item »

In an ideal world, Robert Forster’s band, The Go-Betweens would have sold millions of records in the eighties, such was their ability to write a nice tune. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen and The Go-Betweens music was left to be appreciated by those in the know. Robert Forste...view item »

Rather like The Great Conjunction in The Dark Crystal, Tunng’s shifting personnel have aligned once again, for the first time in many years, just as they were at the outset..

New Order
Technique

What. An. Album. This is the one where New Order took loads of drugs and went to Ibiza and came out with dance pop classic.

Massive Attack
Mezzanine

Mezzanine is a dark masterpiece, as black, as glossy and as intimidating as the beetle creature on its cover.

Amy Winehouse
Frank

Frank was the debut album by Amy Winehouse. She made a massive impact with this upon its release in 2003.

The first Felt album for Creation and the first not to feature guitar wizard Maurice Deebank.

As a result of Deebank's departure Martin Duffy's organ takes centre stage, wanderin...view item »

The Necessaries
Event Horizon

A total rarity for over 35 years, even many Arthur Russell fans don't know about his involvement in this post punk band.

Nadine Shah
Love Your Dum And Mad

Nadine Shah's debut album "Love Your Dum And Mad" came out in 2013 to great critical acclaim. Whilst I can hear a talented artist I still struggle to see what's so fantastic.

Metronomy
Nights Out

Way before they became a curly-haired pop phenomena, Metronomy were a weird little electro band. This is the first album where they started to write 'proper' songs and have a man sing them. "Heartbreaker' particularly foreshadows their increasingly endearing rinky-dink pop. 10th anniversary re-issue 2LP on Because....view item »


Pulp
His 'n' Hers

Pulp's His & Hers is the first 'classic era' Pulp album and definitely one of their best.

She’s not wrong, y’know - it really is a Sensual World that we live in.
