Vampire Weekend
Modern Vampires Of The City

I’ve heard so many good reports of Vampire Weekend’s new record that I was literally chomping at the bit to hear it. All of which evaporated in a tick at limp opener ‘Obvious Bicycle’...have I even put the correct CD in the tray? It’s a really dull plodder so I’m o...view item »

Why?
Moh Lhean

Ah some nice news for 2017 we have Why? back. It's been awhile since his last missive the rather underwhelming 'Mumps etc' but opener 'This Ole King' promises a return to the enjoyable twisty pop of 'Elephant Eyelash' etc. Entirely recorded at home for the first time since his very early work the oddly titled 'Moh Lhean' promise...view item »

Frankie Cosmos
Next Thing

As Frankie Cosmos Greta Kline makes a funny and dense experimental pop that pays reference to songwriters like Jeffrey Lewis, but also the arrangements of a group like Belle & Sebastian. On Next Thing she keeps the bedroom, DIY attitude, but also expands it with a range...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 »

Papernut Cambridge
Mellotron Phase: Volume 2

An exciting foray into the endless possibilities of music made on a Mellotron or “contemporary tape/disc-based playback instruments.” Who am I even kidding? Papernut Cambridge has made an album that sounds like high-resolution covers of early RPG soundtracks. And that's not a bad thing, if it's your thing. ...view item »

The Clientele
Suburban Light

Merge reissue The Clientele’s debut LP on 180g LP complete with a bonus discs worth of covers, b-sides and demos. I’m new to the album but it’s a Clinton favourite and on first spin I really enjoyed it. Sits somewhere between The Velvet Underground stuck in ‘Candy Says’...view item »

Mitra Mitra
Marionettes

Here's a new thing on the ever popular Polytechnic Youth label this time from this Austrian duo who play icy electronic pop reminiscent of the early days of Mute Records although the band claim not to be influenced by a particular style. Serene and melodic the album contains eight tracks and is a one time pressing of 300 only. ...view item »

Spirit Fest
Anohito

It’s what Spirit Fest (Tenniscoats’ Saya & Takashi Ueno, Markus Acher and Cico Beck (The Notwist and others) did next. The supergroup’s second album Anohito is a sweet and engrossing indie charmer, plodding along with affectionate vocals, trickling guitarverb and m...view item »

Alpaca Sports
From Paris With Love

Elefant Records presents the second LP from Alpaca Sports. The tunes on From Paris With Love are perfectly pleasant indie-pop ditties in the best Swedish t...view item »

New Order
Get Ready

I must admit although New Order are one of my favourite bands, I almost gave up on them when they released that awful song about British football that came from the so-so Republic album (what?? ed) . But when I heard "Crystal", the single from this album I was instantly grabbed by the resurgence of New Order's hook-laden sound, deceptively so si...view item »

New Order
Low-Life

With the release of their most successful album Power, Corruption and Lies, New Order had a tough album to follow with. Making a more depressing sound helped with the creation of this album, and in 1985, Low-Life came to reality, and assisted in the growing music scene that was almost elegant, but catchy at the same time. Low Life signalled a ne...view item »

Special Occasion
The Word

Special Occasion - not to be confused with Special Occasion, the pop band briefly active in the mid 1980s - is the English duo of Messrs Guy Gormley and David Gray - not to be confused, I’m guessing, with David “White Ladder” Gray...view item »

Paul McCartney
Egypt Station

Say what you like but Paul McCartney ain't doing bad for nearly 80. The former Beatle has had one of the most incredible careers in music history ranging from brilliance to some of the worst music made by a human and he's still at it. Though lead single 'Come On To Me' sounds bizarrely like Flight of the Conchords...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 »

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 »

LCD Soundsystem
London Sessions

This album takes LCD Sound System's studio-perfect album recordings and puts them in a live setting (albeit still in a studio). This breathes some new life into their songs. The live performances have a little more edge and a little more excitement. The album starts off with a tantalising "Us V. Them" and doesn't let up from there. My favourite ...view item »

Depeche Mode
Speak & Spell | The 12” Singles

Depeche Mode get into the reissues game in a novel way. Ever the innovators, the group have eschewed the typical remastered-LP-on-heavy-vinyl thing for a series of box sets celebrating their 12” singles. This one focuses on the three hits that were born out of their 1981 debut Speak & Spell. That means ‘...view item »

Depeche Mode
A Broken Frame | The 12” Singles

Depeche Mode were one of the first major acts to embrace the potential of the 12” single. During their heyday the group would drop luxurious vinyl releases of their hits, always with striking artwork and often featuring extended versions and remixes by the hottest producers. Now a selection of their best work comes remaste...view item »

Pet Shop Boys
Behaviour

Yes, yes, we know the Pet Shop Boys have been a bit crap for a while now. But when they were good, they were really bloody good. Their fourth LP Behaviour, first released in 1990, is the one that would probably win if you took a straw-poll among hardcore PSB fans as to which was the duo’s best full-length. It&rsqu...view item »

La Force
La Force

As a description writer for Norman Records™ you end up reading a lot of press releases. The quality of these varies wildly. La Force’s La Force has one of the best ones this particular freelance lackey has read in all his years of being chained to a desk deep in the catacombs of Norman Towers. The re...view item »

Mirah
Understanding

Duvet-voiced songstress Mirah returns with an album that returns to the unconventional lo-fi recording processes of her earlier work but also uses guests such as frequent collaborator Eli Crews (tUnE-yArDs, The Julie Ruin, Son Lux) and Greg Saunier (Deerhoof...view item »

My Baby
MOUNAIKI ~ By the Bright of Night

My Baby are a band from New Zealand and also from Holland, and they are presently releasing their fourth album., which is a kind of concept album with a full narrative about a character named Mounaiki. The story gives the band an excuse to dabble in 20’s, 30’s and 40’s genres, on top of their usual fun...view item »

Talking Drums
Courage

Another cracking reissue from Dark Entries here. Talking Drums were a Glaswegian group that knocked about in the ‘80s, releasing two EPs and a full-length record. Courage was first put out in 1982, around the same time groups like Orange Juice were kicking it in Talking Drums&rsqu...view item »

Carla dal Forno
Top Of The Pops

Originally released this Spring, here is a further pressing of Carla Dal Forno's album of covers entitled Top of the Pops. I'm not sure if Liliput were ever on Top of the Pops but they are here alongside the Fates, Renee and the B52s (who have definitely been on Top of the Pops.  Six interpretations showcas...view item »

Slug
HiggledyPiggledy

Slug is the recording alter-ego of Ian Black, who was once a touring member of fellow Sunderland musos and label mates, Field Music. HiggledyPiggledy is Black’s second album and follow-up to 2015’s Ripe. Expect more XTC-meets-James Brown-Meets-John Bonham...view item »

Frankie Cosmos
Vessel

Frankie Cosmos leader and chief songwriter Greta Kline has an impressive 52 releases under her belt in just seven years. Vessel is her third under the Frankie Cosmos name and sees her looking back at the effect this artistically prolific time has had on her through her particular brand of pleasingly melodic indie-pop. LP, CD and...view item »

Field Music
Open Here

Sunderland's Field Music have escaped from the gloom of the world (and the shocking form of their local football team) by nestling into a studio in a light industrial estate to make their 6th album. Full to the brim with flute, flugelhorn and other non-rock instruments, the album continues their escapist vision of a time wh...view item »

Barbarossa
Lier

On Barbarossa's Lier a heady blend of pop and contemporary soul are paired alongside a lush framework of drifting, synthetic bass and glistening synths. Precise drum work comes from Joel Wästberg and everything is shrouded in a comforting amount of warmth and layered, floating orchestration. ...view item »

Barrie
Singles

Barrie are one of those cool bands from Brooklyn. Singles collects - surprise, surprise - their three singles to date. ‘Canyons’, ‘Tal Uno’ and ‘Michigan’ are all dreamy synth-pop tunes that come with a little of the halcyon r&b flavour of Blood Orange. There&rsqu...view item »

Calvin Johnson
A Wonderful Beast

Calvin Johnson, the man behind Olympia’s indie heroes Beat Happening and the label K Records has a new solo album out and it’s called A Wonderful Beast. It was recorded in Nashville and  produced by Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney. In a curveball-ish move by Johnson, it also f...view item »

Sandro Perri
In Another Life

Sandro Perri's newest record sees the avant-folk musician bringing in new aesthetics previously explored in his electronic project Off World. Utilising gorgeous guitar meanderings alongside creaking, squelching, zapping synths, he offers a twenty-plus minute track made with the aim of sounding "infinite". V...view item »

Arc Iris
Icon of Ego

Brooklyn label Ba Da Bing! (Julie Byrne, Katie Von Schleicher) drop the third LP from avant-pop group Arc Iris. For three people they sure do make a big sound on Icon Of Ego. Singer/guitarist Jocie Adams provides an anchor for the band’s complex, slightly math-ind...view item »

Miss World
Keeping Up With Miss World

Shit Girlfriend’s Natalie Chahal adopts the excellent moniker Miss World for her new project. Debut LP Keeping Up With Miss World finds Chahal turning in a baker’s dozen of brisk, brusque grunge-punk tunes as funny as they are catchy. ‘Carb Yr Enthusiasm’, ‘Buy Me Dinn...view item »

Lydmor
I Told You I'd Tell Them Our Story

I Told You I’d Tell Them Our Story is the third LP from Copenhagen-based ‘troublemaker’ Jenny Rossander aka Lydmor. This record was inspired by Rossander’s time living in Shanghai, and sure enough there’s both modern opulence and traditional craft to this record. Some of the tracks - &lsquo...view item »

Marnie
Crystal World

What the fuck does Helen Marnie look like on the sleeve to this, her debut solo album?  Helen, as you may perhaps know, was in Ladytron who sometimes did some good songs, sometimes didn’t but people liked them it seems. Anyway she is wearing a sort of all in one faux leather ...view item »

Mac DeMarco / Haruomi Hosono
Honey Moon

Turns out that Mac DeMarco is a huge fan of Japanese legend Haruomi Hosono and as part of this ongoing series from Lights in the Attic has chosen to cover 'Honey Moon' in his inimitable style whilst also singing in Japanese. You'll remember this series from the time Ariel Pink covered ...view item »

Frøkedal
How We Made It

Second LP from Grammy-nominated Norwegian Frøkedal here. How We Made It is one of those folksy twee-pop things that Scandinavians tend to excel at. The press release says that this album is more instrumentally diverse and less reliant on acoustic instruments than her debut full-length Hold On Dreamer, bu...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 »

Ingus Baušķenieks
Spoki

Knives, shoes, guitars and . . . pens? Interesting album art. Spoki (or Ghosts for us who don't happen to speak Latvian) is a collection of sound art and experimental noise, taking the sound away from what Ingus Bauškenieks is perhaps better known for: being the bass guitarist in Dzeltenie Pastn...view item »

Richenel
Perfect Stranger

Six more tracks released by Music From Memory by the Dutch art-disco singer Richenel. The songs on Perfect Stranger are from Richenel's 1982 cassette only debut album La Diferencia. This is disco in the post-punk vein, all aust...view item »

Blood Orange

The Walker Brothers
Nite Flights

My introduction to Scott Walker was a quite recent TV showing of Scott Walker: 30th Century Man documentary. I got to see the documentary two times, and both showings got me deeper and deeper into the world of Walker. I've been an electronic dance music DJ for over two decades, concentrating mainly in techno, I...view item »

Franz Ferdinand
Always Ascending

New Franz Ferdinand! I always felt that Franz transcended the glut of mid-2000’s indie that rushed in on their coattails, and sure enough here they still are in 2017, producing music that is interesting and fresh. Always Ascending features lots of synth action, with moments that even recall ...view item »

Marie Davidson
Working Class Woman

If you've yet to experience Marie Davidson's music as a solo artist then it's possible you may have encountered her on the Constellation label as a member of Essaie Pas, Land Of Kush or Les Momies de Palerme (amongst others). 'Working Class Woman', her fourth solo full-length, arrives on Ninja Tune and is the Montreal-based artist's most introsp...view item »

Anna Calvi
Hunter

Why is she so wet? What has she been doing? Anyway for this third album for Domino Anna Calvi has made a visceral and truthful record that explores those very 2018 themes of sexuality and gender identity resulting in her most raw and primal record to date. Recorded by Nick Launay (Nick Cave, ...view item »

Pet Shop Boys
Bilingual

While the ‘90s may have seen a slight tail-off in affection for the Pet Shop Boys after they conquered all during the Thatcher years, the decade also had the duo quietly turn in some of their best LPs. Bilingual, their sixth record of original material, is one of these unsung classics. The album maintains a quinte...view item »

Django Django
Marble Skies

7" of the title track from Django Django's third album, Marble Skies. This comes backed with a remix from CID RIM, an affiliate of the LuckyMe record label. CID RIM takes the high energy art rock of the band's original, and gives it the electronic edge a...view item »

Hippo Campus
Bambi

Poppy-type pop music from the likeable Hippo Campus here. Bambi, the Minnesota band’s sophomore LP, is one of those records that has a Mac Demarco thing going on. It’s also likely to be a huge hit, so best school yourself on it now so you can look cool to your mates when the band are headlin...view item »

Westerman
Edison

The comparisons to Arthur Russell have flown freely for Westerman since his emergence a couple of years back. Russell certainly lurks in the corners of Westerman’s new single ‘Edison’ - their singing voices in particular are uncannily similar - though the song is very much drawing from the ...view item »

Sons Of Raphael
A Nation Of Bloodsuckers

The first ever EP from Sons Of Raphael, the London duo who are not only sons, but also brothers. A Nation Of Bloodsuckers contains four tracks, and if you can look past the...view item »

The Beautiful South
Miaow

Once Hull's second biggest employer, the Beautiful South were an incredibly successful collective and the second band to emerge from the brain of Paul Heaton after his earlier the Housemartins. Miaow was their fourth album and contained the usual pop froth with hidden dark and provocative lyrics. S...view item »

Jenn Champion
Single Rider

In the press release for Single Rider, Jenn Champion threatens a record that is a cross between Drake and Billy Joel. On both counts, she delivers. And you know what? It’s bloody good fun. The artist formerly known as S has crafted some sexy lights-low pop jams th...view item »

Big Red Machine
Big Red Machine

Ahh these minstrels will soothe my jangled nerves. Big Red Machine is a collaborative record between Bon Iver Sadboy 2.0 Justin Vernon and Aaron Dessner, songwriter and guitarist in The National. Dessner seems to be at the desk on this one, while Vernon's doubling ...view item »

Talk Talk
Spirit Of Eden

Fashioned from innumerable improv sessions, 1988’s Spirit of Eden is where Talk Talk took an experimental turn and, in so doing, secured the legacy that lives on in bands such as Zelienople. Sprawled-out and unhurried song structures, a smattering of strange sound design, a wide instrumental palet...view item »

Marie Davidson
Marie Davidson

Montreal synth-popster Marie Davidson has had a fine couple of years off the back of her excellent 2016 LP Adieux Au Dancefloor. Seems like a good time, then, for Texan label Holodeck Records to set her eponymous 2012 EP to wax for the first time. While Adieux… had a distinctly noir-ish ...view item »

Wild Nothing
Indigo

My giddy aunt this is an 80s-sounding album. Jack Tatum’s Wild Nothing gig might always have had a fair whack of New Order/The Cure/Echo & The Bunnymen about it, but fourth LP Indigo is the most unabashedly pop-type-thing that Tatum&rsquo...view item »

LCD Soundsystem
Sound Of Silver

LCD Soundsystem's second release differs significantly from their debut, however not to let that discourage as it offers its own merits. Sound Of Silver feels as it can act to the low near or after the end of the party, with their first album being the party, offering songs like 'Someone Great' which elicits an emotional response which can reson...view item »

Ozma
Rock and Roll Part Three

Rock and Roll Part Three was the debut album of Ozma (don’t be fooled by that ‘Part Three’), originally released on day one of the new millenium. Ozma have often been compared to Weezer, and this power-pop beauty is arguably better than a large portion of that band&rsq...view item »

Darwin Deez
10 Songs That Happened When You Left Me With My Stupid Heart

He may have had those frizzy tight curls cut off but here he is with a moustache like that and posing top off for an album sleeve. This is his fourth album which sensibly avoids the current vogue for synth rock and electro textures and simply writes good simple guitar pop with tunes you can whistle. Maybe he's ok after all?  ...view item »

School Damage
A To X

Pop music as made by Melbourne young guns doing it on their own, with a sparky, punky, jumpy guitar band vibe. School Damage have the tight drums, bright organ leads and anti-virtuoso vocals that really make this kind of music shine, and their second album ...view item »

The Kooks
Let’s Go Sunshine

Still being deafened from the roars of the crowds reverberating in their ears from their last arena jaunt, the Kooks return with a bold album inspired by British life, break up and recovery and lost innocence. They've already had one billion streams on various platforms and by my calculations that should result in about 76 album...view item »

Sarah Nixey
Night Walks

Nighthawk and vocalist for Black Box Recorder Sarah Nixey’s third album is finally here. Night Walks caters right to those of us who need that sophisticated pop sound, loaded with electronics and very catchy.

The Streets
A Grand Don't Come For Free

Upon its release 10 years ago, The Streets second album, A Grand Don’t Come For Free was instantly hailed as another masterpiece to equal his initial clarion call, Original Pirate Material.

Part Time
Spell #6

Indiepop dreamer David Speck, better known as Part Time, treating us to his 6th album already.

My Autumn Empire
Oh, Leaking Universe

July Skies/epic45 member Benjamin Holton drops a solo LP under the guise of My Autumn Empire. Anyone who’s copped an earful of previous MAE LPs will be expecting plenty of lush, folky acoustic guitar on Oh, Leaking Universe. They won't be disappointed, but th...view item »

Kathryn Joseph
Tell My Lover

Single Tell My Lover on 7” from Scottish indie folk singer/songwriter Kathryn Joseph, whose debut LP won the Scottish Album of the Year award back in 2015. A tender and sensitive song with all the fragile power of Joseph’s otherworldly vocals and gentle melodies. Out o...view item »

Alvvays
Alvvays

Another name like Chvrches to add to the easier to google, intentionally misspelt list. Although Canadian, the band sound quite remarkably Scottish. They take most of their cues from Camera Obscura and have a pleasing mid-fi sound with both jangle and strum aplenty. Fans of ...view item »

Still Corners
Slow Air

Fourth album from Americanophile Brits Still Corners. Slow Air represents the band exploring the vastness of America, a vastness that finds itself on this album's songs. The instrumentation is intense and sparse, built from plucked guitars, minimal drums and synths, and of course Tessa Murray...view item »

Panda Bear
A Day With The Homies

We now have a reason for why Noah Lennox sat out Animal Collective’s Meeting of the Waters EP that came out midway through 2017 - he was finishing off his first solo release since 2015.

En Attendant Ana
Lost and Found

Invitation To Her's

Barrow/Norway hook ups Her's have aligned themselves with a never ending cycle of album titles. 'Invitation to Her's' follows the compilation 'Songs of Her's' and we predict the next one with be 'Thrown out of Her's' or 'The Police Were Round at Her's' or later their Go-Betweens covers album 'Her's Handwriting'.

Up ‘n’ coming Londoner Laurel introduces her debut Dogviolet. Named after everyone’s favourite purple, scentless flower, it broods on the complex old chestnut of love.

London’s Heavenly Recordings reissue a long overdue j-pop classic by four-piece kawaii-overloaders CHAI.

New Order
Power, Corruption & Lies

New Order’s second full-length achieves a fine balance between electronic and guitar-based music.

Life is pain. That, my dear Norman Records™ customer, is just how it is. Break-ups. Boring jobs. Tax returns. Penalty shootouts. Famine. War. Pestilence. Brexit.

The year, 2113; the setting, Earth. The planet is a withered corpse. Ravaged by the climate catastrophes and nuclear wars of the previous century, human life has become impossible to support.

The Lemon Twigs debut album Do Hollywood was loved by Norman customers despite what the staff thought, so you’d probably like to know about it’s follow-up, huh?

His 'n' Hers

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

Joyriders, Lipgloss, Babies and Do You Remember the First Time all on one album, that's incredi...view item »

Sparks
Exotic Creatures Of The Deep

The Sparks success is measured through their cult following and critical acclaim rather than commercial chart success.

BC Camplight

Songs You Make At Night

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..

The Pearlfishers
The Strange Underworld Of The Tall Poppies

The Pearlfishers, from Glasgow, are an alternative pop band with retro influences from the late sixties and early seventies. They are perhaps the most melodic band ever!

Parekh & Singh
Science City

Parekh & Singh present their second LP, and boy is it lush. Science City perhaps lands somewhere between the gorgeous dream-pop of Beach House and the textured arrangements of Grizzly Bear: in any case, its eleven tracks make up a beautiful and rich listen. Science City &nb...view item »

Das Body
Das Body

Luminelle Recordings did good earlier this year when they released an excellent bedroom pop record from Helena Deland. This, the eponymous debut EP from Das Body (great name), is also pretty decent. The four tracks here are politely funky synth-pop with a bit of a Christine & The Que...view item »
