Nadine Khouri
The Salted Air

Nadine Khouri recorded her debut album with noted PJ Harvey collaborator John Parish, and it isn’t hard to spot a little of PJ in The Salted Air’s languid atmospheres and soft power. But Khouri’s Lebanese side brings further delicious elements into the mix. It’s hard to believe this is her first full-length, as Khouri sounds so totally in control here. Out on One Flash Records.

Laurie Shaw
Felted Fruit

Amalgamating vintage sounds with a contemporary slant, not unlike Cate Le Bon, Laurie Shaw’s music emanates the gentle ebb and flow of soft vocals and warm fuzz. The 30 tracks on this double album are certain to make their impression on you, like crashing waves carve out the rocks of the shaw. One can’t help but feel this album’s richness and authenticity from the outset.

Heart Beach
Kiss Your Face

Tasmanian indie-pop trio Heart Beach follow up their 2015 self-titled debut album with “Kiss Your Face” on Sydney’s Spunk Records.

Record comes with a handy download code too, so you can take these sad-pop rhythms and angsty guitar riffs with you on the go and hit yourself right in the feels in all sorts of environments.

Black Opal

Shining Bird have been dreaming up Australian-tinged dream pop in Australia for several years now, and now have a second full length to share with the world.

D∆WN
Redemption

Following her EP on Fade To Mind, D∆WN returns to Local Action with a new album in tow, completing the trilogy after GoldenHeart and Blackheart. Redemption’s lead single “Renegades” sees her “Not Above That” producer Machinedrum return to collaborate on more exuberant electronic-R&B where vocal harmonies, anthemic horns and skittering percussion coexist in an ecstatic utopia of explosive colour. Dawn Richard’s Danity Kane days are long gone.

Dronne

Joyful whimsy and mild dischord from North Sea Radio Orchestra on Dronne, their fourth album after a four year break where guitarist Craig Fortnam has been beavering away on his solo projects.

CC Dust
CC Dust

CC Dust make good old-fashioned synth-pop, driven by the cold-hearted relentless pulse of a vintage drum machine (the way it should be!).

Hinds
Leave Me Alone

Hinds are an all-girl indie four-piece with a DIY aesthetic. Their reverb-heavy guitars and call-and-response vocals are inspired by the ‘60s sun-kissed music of Californian beaches but also recall more modern bands such as Bleached, Best Coast and Dum Dum Girls. Their debut album, Leave Me Alone is getting plaudits from all the right places including BBC 6 Music, Pitchfork and NME.

Once & Future Band
Once & Future Band

Once & Future Band are a full-on throwback to the rich flavours of the great orchestral-prog-pop of the 1970’s. This self-titled debut of theirs sounds like a mash-up of all the nicest bits from all those bands, but performed with such love and skill that it all sounds new and fun. Nobody does this kind of music anymore anyway. Released by John Dwyer’s Castle Face label.

Prince
Let's Pretend We're Married

When Prince makes the proposition Let's Pretend We’re Married to you, you know you are in for a hell of an evening. Especially if you take a look at the sleeve art too… This was one of the singles from the smash album 1999, and comes backed with the original B-side ‘Irresistable Bitch’. 12” single reissued by Warner Bros.

Queensberry Rules feat. KUČKA

Returning after a mini hiatus from his relentlessly great release schedule, Dro Carey is back on vinyl 12” from Soothsayer. Queensbury Rules sees the house-not-house producer joined by KUČKA on vocals, and he just about manages to keep his experimental ideas in check for these dark club deconstructions.

Valley Hush
Valley Hush

Valley Hush would describe their music as ‘experimental pop’, a nice little genre pocket to sit in. Their songs are indeed songs, and catchy ones at that, but the duo make things happen with their productions that you might not expect to hear in your pop. Valley Hush is their debut full-length album, and is released on vinyl by The Record Machine.

Clean Cut Kid
Make Believe

Though I would personally find it hard to sleep at night if I released a single as cheerful and optimistic as Make Believe, I shouldn't ruin the fun for those less pessimistic and cynical than myself. So what I will say is that the new Clean Cut Kid single is a highly polished and well written tune, with pleasurably fuzzy guitars and a joyous party spirit. However, if the election of a certain spray-tanned billionaire has brought you down to my pre-existing level of bleak despair, then I'll tell you what I really think of this song in person. Released as Vinyl 7" on Polydor.

Whyte Horses & St. Barts Choir
St. Barts Choir perform Pop or Not (the music of Whyte Horses)

Earlier this year Manchester’s Whyte Horses released made a psych-pop album called Pop or Not. Then they got together with the choir of Haslemere primary school St. Bartholemew’s and re-did the whole thing, but with the kids singing. My cockles, consider them warmed. Out as LP and CD in December. It is preceded by a special cut of ‘She Owns the World’ where all of the school’s 420 (yes, 420) children belt out the chorus.

Croque Madame
Croque Madame

Sam Kogon
Psychic Tears

Sam Kogon’s Psychic Tears has the feel of a vintage obscurity that didn’t get its dues in the 1970’s. And yet this is a brand new release! So give it those dues straight away.

Izenberg immerses himself in his typically vivid imagination, in what becomes a romantic and easy-listen offering.

Jazzateers
Don't Let Your Son Grow Up To Be A Cowboy

'Don't Let Your Son Grow Up To Be A Cowboy' brings together early work by the underground New Wave outfit Jazzateers, a session that was recorded for Postcard Records but had all but been forgotten by time. "Wasted" is a throughline to the emergent indie rock of the time, intended to be the very last single Postcard Records would put out, and produced by the renowned Edwyn Collins, of Orange Juice fame. 'Don't Let Your Son Grow Up To Be A Cowboy' often shows off Jazzateers at their rawest and most immediate.    Tracks: Natural Progression Part 1 Don't Worry About A Thing Say Goodbye I'm No Tarzan When The Novelty Wears Off Can It Be Moon Over Hawaii Wasted Stop Me From Being Alone Love Is Around Run Away Don't Let Your Son Grow Up To Be A Cowboy Hey Mister Different Feeling Lee Can It Be Moon Over Hawaii Natural Progression Part 2

“Love is Enough”, the latest offering from Castellon’s Lia Pamina, is due to be released on limited edition vinyl with an included download code.

Adam Green has, it would appear, taken it upon himself to produce a film version of Aladdin, giving it his own, fairly radical spin (the lamp is replaced with a 3D printer) and bringing in his New York associates to assist. This is his soundtrack to the project, a decadent song suite full to the brim with Adam Green. On Revolver.

Virginia Wing
Forward Constant Motion

Virginia Wing’s second LP ‘Forward Constant Motion’ sees the band deviate towards a more expansive, focused sound but still retains some of the cosmic darkness of debut LP ‘Measures of Joy’. Still showing signs of a propensity for dreamlike, otherworldly themes, this record melds a successful hybrid of the sleepy new age of Laurie Anderson and Homework-era Daft Punk, resulting in a bold and imaginative contemporary pop record. Includes a digital download card.

Also include one new track featuring The Mattson 2.

Aa
ZebrAa

Three different drummers appear on ZebrAa, drawn from throughout Aa’s career to date. So many drummers! That means that inventive percussion is at the heart of the record: electronics and vocals have plenty to add, but triple-drummer polyrhythms are damn hard to overshadow. Vinyl release on the Fire Talk label for this wonderfully catchy noisemakery.

With a new album in the works and her oddball collaboration as the Drink bringing her to new listeners it's a decent enough time for Cate Le Bon's earlier work to be re-issued. This is her third album and it showcases her way with a wandering and winsome melody. Duran Duran fans should note that her real name is Cate Timothy.

Rayon
A Beat Of Silence

The latest release from Rayon, aka Markus Archer, aka singer of The Notwist. Though A Beat of Silence is a quiet and considered record, several of the numbers here create ambient textures via the use of organic rather than effect-laden instrumentation. See how the title track and ‘Dots’ bring about a feel of gradual motion not through delay pedals but through careful layering of marimba, vibraphone and piano. Out on vinyl and CD through Morr Music.

Carla dal Forno
You Know What It’s Like

Carla dal Forno, who has previously been active in Tarcar and Mole House, has a thickly melancholy singing style that somewhat recalls Nico. Solo debut You Know What It’s Like is an album of highly personal songs, but, because this is out on Blackest Ever Black, it naturally also has a good deal of heavy electronic weight to it. A super-atmospheric record.

Jamie Lidell
Building a Beginning

Really smooth music from Huntingdon's answer to Marvin Gaye. Liddell has been soulful for many years but he sounds like some kind of cross between Gaye and Stevie Wonder slinking his way through a batch of laid back electronic soul. He uses the cream of the world's best session musician to create this soporific, psychedelic soul that is so thick you could stand a spoon in it.

Soft Hair

This is the duo of Connan Mockasin and Sam Dust (LA Priest/Late of the Pier) in collaboration.

TOY
Clear Shot

They are a strange lot Toy, they never completely blow you away but they are very pleasant to listen to. This is their third album and they recorded it themselves then sent it over to the states for a bit of gloss. It carries on the moody krauty template from previous albums and lead track 'Fast Silver' has some rather moody atmospheres which certainly bode well.

All the bands with ‘Crystal’ in their name always make me think of hazy fuzz-guitars, but Crystal Fighters have more than that up their sleeve on this new album (their third). Everything Is My Family is born out of the band members’ various gap-yearish global travels, and they all came back with a new understanding of ‘world’ musics and ‘world’ life. Released by Play It Again Sam.

Meilyr Jones
2013

Meilyr Jones’ album 2013 is intended to convey to the listener the experience of being Meilyr Jones during the year 2013, which it achieves through the medium of broadly orchestrated melodic pop songs. As well as Jones’ vocals, we have trombones, choirs, french harps, bassoons and plenty else contributing to the sound of 2013. Out on Moshi Moshi.

s a r a s a r a
a m o r f a t i

It is impossible not to mention Bjork here. Signed to her label One Little indian, the debut album from french singer/songwriter/electronica-madwoman s a r a s a r a is tonal and heavy. A sort of uber R&B with Amon Tobin production values and Bjork-come-Coco Rosie vocals with a bits of Julianna Barwick layering.

Jake Bugg
On My One

As far as I am aware, this is Jake Bugg’s first foray into production after his previous album, Shangri La was produced by none other than Rick Rubin. A bit of a leap for Bugg perhaps who wrote, played and produced everything except three tracks produced by Jacknife Lee. Perhaps this is why the album is called On My One and has such insular, inflected track titles as ‘Love Hope and Misery’ and ‘Gimme the Love’ which sees Bugg begging for love in the chorus. It’s yet another move away from the boy-with-guitar sound of his first album and one with bold ambitions for rock/pop success.

Tusks
False

London based Emily Underhill has been snapped up by One Little Indian as Tusks. A Four tracks of diverse and slickly executed tracks with For You’s Cinematic Orchestra esque opening dropping into a spacious FKA Twigs style beat as pitched vocal chops swirl around and title track False being a slow build to a dramatic trip-hop/post-club that would sit nicely with London Grammar.

Man & The Echo
Man & The Echo

Warrington born four-piece Man & The Echo are so named after a poem by W.B. Yeats. This is unsurprising, as their self-titled debut has poetry and lyrical philosophy to boot, all delivered in a sincere north-western accent. Warmly reminiscent of some of the earlier pioneers of the genre (think Pulp/The Smiths), Man & The Echo is 11 tracks of down-to-earth, catchy and charming indie-pop. Released as Vinyl LP and CD on 1965 records.

Crocodiles
Dreamless

For those who haven't been keeping count this is Crocodiles 6th LP. Where does the time go eh? The title refers to a condition close to Phil's heart - insomnia. And despite their lack of sleep the duo have come up with a collection of perky collection of piano 'n' synth tunes. Certainly the track I'm listening to sounds a bit like New Order. I'm happy with that.

Magik*Magik
Magik*Magik

Magik*Magik is Minna Choi, a musician who has appeared on recordings and in performance with stacks of great musicians, from Jonny Greenwood to Death Cab To Cutie. For this self-titled debut album of her own material, her voice dances with super-rich orchestration and poppy rhythms: high-grade stuff from someone who has engaged with music all across the spectrum.

CC Dust
Shinkansen No. 1 / New Ways

CC Dust are a new band with an old sound, fully embodying the heart and soul of 1980’s synth-pop. Shinkansen No. 1 / New Ways throbs with David Jaques’ melodic basslines and soars with Maryjane Dunphe’s moodily impassioned vocals. They’ve got the synth-pop skills and no mistake. 7” single release on the Night School label.

The Radio Dept.
Running Out Of Love

The new Radio Dept. album has been on the brew for six years now, and is now ready to be served up. Running Out Of Love expresses frustration with the direction of development in the band’s native Sweden, with a pumping electro-pop musical backing. Melancholy vibes, fiercely expressed.

The Beat Escape
The Beat Escape

Starkly immediate and organic, is the self-titled record thought-up by Montreal duo - The Beat Escape. Naked drum machines sit alongside haunting harmonies and faint chord progressions, that conjure up both nostalgia and melancholy. Lo-fi, yet smooth - this is the height of chilled. Close your eyes, and escape into this otherworldly universe.

Hooton Tennis Club
Big Box of Chocolates

Although it may not sound like it from the title, Big Box Of Chocolates sees Wirral indie band Hooton Tennis Club come of age, exploring themes of love and loss. The band recruited the legendary Edwyn Collins to produce the album. It is their second album and follows on from their vivacious debut Highest Point In Cliff Town.

Arab Strap
Arab Strap

Look at them there on the sleeve. They look a lot older than that now and to the delight of their fans have reformed for a few shows this October. To tie in with this comes this compilation of some of their best bits as well as rarities and B sides etc.  Arab Strap were always a lot more than their pished up image suggested with lots of gorgeous music backing Aidan Moffatt's slurred tales.

American Wrestlers
American Wrestlers

American Wrestlers are a new lo-fi project by 20-year-plus indie veteran and proud Scot, Gary McClure. McClure's journey has seen him move from his home in Scotland to Manchester and finally to Missouri where American Wrestlers took shape. Recorded on an 8-track and using cheap and basic instruments, McClure writes blissfully melodic indie-pop about simple pleasures.

Holy Oysters
Holy Oysters

60/70s psyche inspired indie pop from Parisian band Holy Oysters, dragging the genre into 2016, kicking and screaming. There’s a bit of Currents stage Tame Impala mixed with crystal clear electro-pop production, glistening synths and guitars that stopped sounding like guitars four pedals ago. These are catchy pop songs that stay with you. Psychedelic earworms for all.

Pavo Pavo
Young Narrator In The Breakers

As otherworldy and retrofuturist as its utopian record sleeve, Young Narrator In The Breakers is the 2016-born brainchild of Pavo Pavo. The Brooklyn-based five-piece flex their weightless off-kilter pop into a multitude of spaces in what amounts to a thoroughly inquisitive yet enjoyable offering.

Douglas Dare
Aforger

First up the most important question. What is that in his mouth? It looks like it could be some kind of bird or something. Not a good idea. This is Dare's second album and like many records comes out of what sounds like a horrible relationship breakdown. Dare sings about identity and the sort of fakery that goes on when someone plays around behind your back. Dark stuff but therapeutic for him I hope. Couple this with some neat electronics and bleak guitars and we could have an interesting record here.

Our Daughter’s Wedding
Moving Windows

Reincarnated onto vinyl and CD from Futurismo, is Moving Windows - the 1980's brainchild of highly underrated American synth-punks Our Daughters Wedding. Produced by big hitters David Spradley (Funkadelic) and Colin Thurston (Duran Duran, Iggy Pop), this reissued version fires the trio into the 21st century.

Lawrence Arabia
Absolute Truth

New Zealand’s Lawrence Arabia hopes to make a breakout with Absolute Truth, reaching for a wider international crowd than his current Kiwi / Oz fanbase. There is a rich detail to the sunny pop sound of this album, as though each musical surface was carefully thought about and polished to a sheen. Out on New Zealand’s legendary Flying Nun label.

Pet Shop Boys
Say It To Me

The Pet Shop Boys have always been well-remixed, and Say It To Me, the latest release from their current Super album, is no exception. Real Lies, Tom Demac, Stuart Price and Offer Nissim all work their magic across both CD and 12” releases: CD purchasers get the extra treat of a Carl Craig reworking of ‘Inner Sanctum’! Pure pop power on x2.

Sam Coomes
Bugger Me

With his career seemingly continually funded by Domino Records despite not that large a percentage of the music listening public being all that interested, Quasi organ guy Sam Coombes unleashes his solo debut which as you might imagine sounds like a light hearted organ-based funfair ride. The big question is whether the title is 'bugger me' as in "bugger me that's where the shed key got to" or an instruction?

Empire Of The Sun
Two Vines

Although the press release cheerfully discloses that their debut Walking on A Dream sold 1.5 million copies it fails to confirm sales of it's follow up Ice on the Dune. Something went very wrong between the two albums but there's hope yet for Empire of the Sun if they can just stay clear of being too cheesy. Two Vines does sound like another very hi end production from these guys with big banks of catchy pop pulping out of ridiculously dressed men.

Madness
Can't Touch Us Now

Madness really like London don't they? Love the place. Can't stop talking about it. It's a shame their previous album 'Oui Oui, Si Si, Ja Ja, Da Da' was as much of a dud as its title as the earlier 'The Liberty of Norton Fulgate' was a superb late period piece. From the sound of lead single 'Mr Apples' the nutty boys still have that quintessential English thing going along alongside a knack of producing catchy, heartwarming vintage pop. Long may they rein.

Few Bits
Big Sparks

Berlin band Few Bits move to [Pias] for their sophomore album of doped up and hazed out jangly, shoe-focused, indie pop. On songs like Anyone Else there’s a 90s teen flick nostalgia going on here, there’s angst but it’s all a bit soft focused, while Summer Sun sits back more and offers more dreamy atmospheres.

Cardinal
Cardinal

Cardinal are a duo made up of American singer/songwriter Eric Matthews and Australian Richard Davies (The Moles). Giving 60s orchestral pop a modern twist with lush harmonies and soft melodies. Originally released in 1994, this eponymous debut album was at odds with the noisier guitar bands that were all the rage at the time. The CD contains bonus tracks including early demos and more.

La Femme
Mystere

French indie pop with many twists. With songs like Sphynx being (relatively) straight hitting synth pop and Où Va Le Monde delving into french folk pop indie, with flanger soaked guitar strums and a frolicking pace, to the near psychedelic Septembre. La Femme don’t really sit still, but with each guest appearance change their output accordingly. Features Naomi Greene, Angela Hureau, Battista Acquaviva, and more.

Depeche Mode
Black Celebration

Black Celebration is Depeche Mode's fifth album, and was originally released in 1986. It is regarded by many fans of the band as their zenith, and with good, disturbing cause: the dark sound that was nascent on Black Celebration's predecessors, Construction Time Again and Some Great Reward was fully realised here.

Depeche Mode
101

101 captures Depeche Mode at the very end of a colossally long 1989 tour (yep, 101 shows…) and at the peak of their powers. So that means an hour and a half of mega-hits played out to an adoring crowd, with bangers including ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’ and ‘People Are People’ in the mix. Reissued on a pair of 180g LPs by Colombia.

Throws
Throws

Throws is the new sound of the musicians formerly known as Tunng, nigh on a decade since that project’s last album. The folkishness has mostly faded, and electronics are very much at the fore: this is almost synth-pop at times! Good to see that there is still plenty of interesting life in this resurrected creative relationship. Out on Full Time Hobby.

The Slow Show
Dream Darling

Powerful, string backed, slow crescendo ballads of The National with deep and nearing on breaking baritone soft spoken vocals reminiscent of Lambchop. Big piano chords and warm trundling bass and drums, huge, yet subtle swelling orchestral pieces back the drama and intimacy of these songs for a little self reflection.

D.D Dumbo
Utopia Defeated

D.D Dumbo is the solo alias of Oliver Perry out of Castlemaine, and this is the debut Dumbo full-length.

Jenny Hval
Blood Bitch

We here at Norman love Jenny Hval, so this new album is a happy occasion for us. Blood Bitch engages with black metal, 70’s horror films and menstruation, ending up in a typically fantastic experimental song-suite. Oh, and Norwegian noise heavyweight Lasse Marhaug is on production duties too! On Sacred Bones.
