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 »


Distance, Light & Sky
Gold Coast

Distance, Light & Sky features three excellent musicians from different areas of music, and the common ground they find together is wonderful to hear. Chantal Acda, whose voice has previously been heard atop Sleepingdog...view item »


The Siddeleys
What Went Wrong This Time?

As if in a dream I walked into the recent Sarah Records showcase at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds and there in front of me was a man in a The Siddeleys t-shirt. Having only released two singles and a Peel session they are only just barely remembered even by obsessives of the scene like me. Here is their debut single re-pres...view item »


New Order
Republic

Remember Republic? The New Order album with sleeve art that looks like a straight-to-video action movie languishing in a VHS bargain bin? Here it is reissued, by Rhino. The 1993 album includes the hit ‘Regret’, and was the last thing released by the band before their long hiatus. Remastered audio!...view item »


Liela Moss
My Name Is Safe In Your Mouth

It’s been a busy couple of years for Liela Moss. After releasing two records in as many years with main group The Duke Spirit, Moss keeps her foot on the gas by dropping her debut solo LP. My Name Is Safe In Your Mouth is an LP of stirring, folkish and vaguely psychedelic songcraft that will appea...view item »


Planningtorock
Powerhouse

Planningtorock are planningtorelease a new LP for the first time since 2014. Powerhouse finds the Berlin-based artist back on DFA Records and turning in ten pieces of stormy queer-pop. Single ‘Transome’ is a winning combination of How To Dress Well-style r&b and din...view item »


The Smoking Trees
The Adventure Continues

On The Adventure Continues, Los Angeles’ The Smoking Trees (these days down to just a single smoking tree known as Sir Psych) continue their trippy adventure on the mouth-watering Burger Records. Expect relatively blazed, introspective and calm tunes all written, mixed and produced by the knight h...view item »


Sam Fender
Dead Boys EP

Sam Fender is well on his way to being massive. He was nominated for the BBC sound of 2018 award and one of his songs was used on the FIFA 19 game. His songs are generally about social and political subjects, largely inspired by his hometown of North Shields. His music is arena-ready with anthemic...view item »


International Teachers of Pop

Papercuts
Parallel Universe Blues

Parallel Universe Blues is the 6th album by Papercuts, AKA singer/songwriter Jason Quever.

SONOIO
Fine

A nine track release from SONOIO called Fine that draws together electronic sounds, synths and powerful vocals.. This one is available on CD, and two different versions of vinyl. The first being a limited edition, translucent green coloured vinyl LP and the other being your good old reliable black vinyl. Released on Dias. ...view item »


Desert
Sense EP

Desert are the Catalan duo of Cristina Checa and Eloi Caballé who count dream pop legends like Cocteau Twins, Insides, Kate Bush and Julia Holter as just some of the inspirations for their synthetic electronic pop. Their new music was recently sent into s...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 »


Eliza and the Bear
Group Therapy

A few years ago Eliza and the Bear seemed destined to be the next big thing. Things didn’t take off as their major label would have like so they were unceremoniously dropped. Their new album Group Therapy, was written during this upheaval and has served as the title suggests it would. Making...view item »


Ladytron
Ladytron

Named after a track on the first Roxy Music album, Ladytron stayed nicely under radar back in the day with their Teutonic electronic pop. The Liverpool band have had a bit of a break recently, but luckily after a s...view item »


Prince
Nothing Compares 2 U

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone. Prevent the dog from barking with ... the original record of ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ by Prince. The first of what will likely be many everyday masterpieces to emerge from the vaults of the late legend, the track has been remastered from the original tapes and sent off into t...view item »


The Dø
Shake, Shook, Shaken

French-Finnish cool electro pop from The Dø. Lots of dance sounds and percussion, stripped back of ‘real’ instruments in favour of a more eclectic electric sounds. Cartoony, bright and fun, definitely one for fans of La Roux. Very good stuff from the two-piece band. On Wagram, available on bot...view item »


The Dø
A Mouthful

A Mouthful was the debut album by Olivia Merilahti and Dan Levy, better known as French/Finnish duo The Dø. It was originally released in 2008 and was critically well received. The album is a real mish-mash of styles, I mean they've really thrown everything at this, ranging from ethereal ta...view item »


Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
Dazzle Ships

It's a great time to be an Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark fan: forty years on from the group’s formation, four of their classic albums are getting reissues. 1983’s Dazzle Ships ...view item »

Trentemøller / Various
Harbour Boat Trips Vol. 02 Copenhagen by Trentemøller

If you’ve ever visited the waterfronts of Copenhagen you’ve likely noticed the many, many harbour boat trips taking place. Apparently so has slick, leathery Danish DJ/composer Anders Trentemøller and therefore, here’s the second entry in his infrequent mix series named after the practice. You’ll fi...view item »


Yelle
Safari Disco Club



Reverse Family
My Songs About Life Mid Crisis

There's an air of flippancy about Reverse Family's latest full-length - My Songs About Life Mid Crisis; but actually, this is a well structured slab of funk-infused glam rock. Tracks such as 'Way It Goes' are driven by drunken guitar solos and lyrics that hardly appear sober, but the whole th...view item »


Tender
Fear Of Falling Asleep

Tender are James Cullen (don’t worry, I said Cullen, not Corden) and Dan Cobb, a London duo who make mid-fi R&B. Their new album, Fear Of Falling Asleep, is being hailed as a career high for them If tracks as such as the title track and Closer Still are anything to go by then they could ...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 »


Stats
Other People's Lives

Stats are new to the Memphis Industries stable. They are a DIY art pop band who are led by Ed Steed. He once played in LA Roux’s backing band, this along with, surprisingly, the countless mundane office jobs he’s had have inspired the rather upbeat new album, Other Peo...view item »

Majetic
Club Dread

Justin Majetich has previously released on Winspear Records (The Lemon Twigs, The Pills) as CARE, but this LP sees him adopt a new moniker. The Majetic sound certainly alludes to club music on Club Dread, but these tracks are neither dancefloor fod...view item »


Gregor
Silver Drop

Aussie youngster, Gregor, likes to make an eccentric brand of pop music. On his debut, Silver Drop he takes his cues from Talking Heads, Durutti Column and Arthur Russell. The lyrics are emotionally charged with Gregor having deci...view item »


Molly Nilsson
These Things Take Time

Molly Nilsson has made quite a name for herself since this debut album first came out on CD in 2008, so it’s only right that it’s finally seeing a proper vinyl release, with a couple of bonus tracks to bring it up to a mammoth 17 tracks, and a lovely screenprinted poster too. As for the record itself, while I don’t have...view item »


Part Time
Spell #6

Indiepop dreamer David Speck, better known as Part Time, treating us to his 6th album already. Wittily titled Spell #6, the record expounds on the man’s strong melancholic electronic pop sounds, reminding us of Ducktails, Washed Out, and Ariel Pink--the latter of which also making an appearance on the album’...view item »


Helen
The Original Faces

Check this one out Grouper fans! Liz Harris has formed a band, as in ‘an actual band’ band. Harris’ unmistakeable vocals can thus be heard over a sort of shoegaze/indie-pop backing. Helen still maintains an essentially mystic nature, but it is very welcome to h...view item »


Glasvegas
Glasvegas

And the first is from Glasvegas. I reviewed their debut single 'Go Square Go' a wee while back, threatening to throw myself in the path of moving traffic if I was to hear it again, utterly confident the bunch of shitehawks would piss off and sink like a lead elephant in a marsh. Unfortunately, I must have given them some kind of unintended midas to...view item »

Captured Tracks CT10: Volume 1

Captured Tracks have done a decent job of shaping the world in their own image over the past decade. Since launching in 2008 the Brooklyn label has tended to blow the winds of change in American indie rock by promoting artists such as Wild Nothing, Mac Demarco and DIIV. Those th...view item »


Various
Captured Tracks CT10: Volume 2

A decade of Captured Tracks, eh. What kind of world would we be living in if the Brooklyn label hadn’t risen to the top of the indie-rock pile since launching back in 2008? Would Mac Demarco still be eating his own shoes, cartoon-hobo style, in a Tribeca loft rather than cooing politely for huge crowds of ...view item »


Farah
The Only Ones

Endearing electronic musician Farah makes disco music that is simultaneously playful and somber, meticulously crafted, yet informal and arty. On The Only Ones, she delves into her Persian heritage whilst keeping themes fairly enigmatic. Produced and mixed by Johnny Jewel of The Chromatics. 180g ...view item »


In Mirrors
Escape From Berlin

The press release for Escape From Berlin, a new record that is something or other to do with Johnny Jewel and his friend Jesse Taylor, asks us to imagine ‘Phillip Glass [sic] playing chess with William Burroughs while Klaus Schulze slaves over a d...view item »


Chromatics
Camera

Johnny Jewel cranks out his umpteenth collection of synth nouveau-noir in the form of the latest Chromatics release. It’s a bit of an odds-and-sods collection is the Camera EP. The eight-song track listing consists of two newbies, three versions of the title track (the original of which originally...view item »


XTC
Skylarking

Now the stuff of legend, XTC were holed up with eccentric producer Todd Rundgren for this 1986 album in which band and producer battled, sniped and argued throughout. You'd never guess listening to the more pastoral parts of the record and despite what the band think, it's a really great album. This version is the reverse polari...view item »


Empress Of
Us

The much-hyped Empress Of comes through with the follow-up to her 2015 debut LP. Back then it was all about Me, but now the one born Lorely Rodriguez is more concerned with Us. This is another album of lush pop that blurs the lineages of r&b and queer pop. Anyone who felt that recent Blood Oran...view item »


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. Jarvis Cocker is firing on all cylinders here with his trademark lyrical wit and backed by some of Pulp's catchiest tunes. Joyriders, Lipgloss, Babies and Do You Remember the First Time all on one album, that's incredi...view item »


Soft Cell
Northern Lights / Guilty (Cos I Say You Are)

They are back back back folks: Marc Almond’s classic synth-pop concern Soft Cell, presenting their first new material since the heady days of 2002. Although apparently this is a bit of a farewell release too… Northern Lights doffs a cap to the Northern Soul sound, which had a key influence ...view item »


Arthur Russell
Calling Out of Context

This was the album that started the re-assessment of Arthur Russell's life and work. It compiled previously unreleased and unheard work from Arthur's enormous archive and featured tracks written and recorded between '85 and '90. Now here's the re-issue, spread over to 2LP for maximum sound clarity.   ...view item »


Soap&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 »


Cowboy Flying Saucer / Magoo
Heavily Sedated NOW! / Sons And Daughters Of Disaster

After a seven year break, Magoo are back. This time they’re sharing a 7” with London band, Cowboy Flying Saucer. Magoo’s experimental DIY ethic with pop sensibilities saw them being picked up by Chemikal Underground Records in the late ‘90s before moving to pastures new. ...view item »


Superhuman Happiness
Beacon

Ten years into their career and Superhuman Happiness release their third album, Beacon, a darker and more emotional experience than previous works. They are led by Stuart Bogie who currently also works with Arcade Fire and has previously collaborated with Iron & Wine...view item »


Belle and Sebastian
The Boy With The Arab Strap

On this, their third album Belle and Sebastian were getting used to becoming some kind of accidental indie-rock royalty. They became more knowing with songs about US fanzine 'Chickfactor' and A & R man extraordinaire Seymour Stein. Here, leader Stuart Murdoch began his crusade to let other band members sing which is always a bad idea as at t...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 »

Meggie Brown
10/ 6

7" single from London based newcomer Meggie Brown. Having already received the backing of some of the Scottish indie scene's best and brightest, the album was produced by Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos at Edwyn Collins' studio, it's about time her incendiary indie rock caught a few mo...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 »


Westerman
Confirmation

Hotly-tipped London auteur Westerman returns to the fledgling Blue Flowers imprint with new single ‘Confirmation’. 2017’s Call And Response EP brought free-flowing comparisons to Nick Drake and Arthur Russell, and those influences remain strong on this...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 »


Felt
Poem Of The River

For anyone that thinks all the best Felt stuff came in the first part of their career you need to hear Poem of the River. This is a glorious low key album full of glistening guitars and Lawrence's whispered vocals. Six lovely songs including career highlights Stained Glass Windows in the Sky and Dark Red Birds. Utterly essential...view item »


Felt
Train Above The City

Possibly one of the strangest albums ever made in that Felt leader Lawrence is nowhere to be seen and instead of their usual arty indie-pop you get an album of jazzy instrumentals composed by keyboardist Martin Duffy and drummer Gary Ainge. Musically it bears no resemblance to anything else they've ever done but still fits in wi...view item »


Mazzy Star
Still

The first new music in four years from David Roback and Hope Sandoval AKA Mazzy Star comes in the form of a 4-track 12” EP. Still features three brand new songs along with a new version of the title track from their 1993 masterpiece, So Tonight That I Might See. 12” EP on Rhymes of an Hour....view item »


Just The Right Height
Let Forever Be Only You Tonight

New York-based Keke Hunt’s project Just the Right Height offers up a radical debut for She Rocks!, in which the objectification and normalisation of the female subject, from physical dimensions to every aspect of behaviour, are subjected to satirical critique. Hunt’s mucky style of disjointed, stripped-bare dance tra...view item »


Still Corners
Creatures of an Hour

Wine. You want to drink this album down with a wine. I dunno how exactly I'm supposed to feel about this collection of demure chamber melancholia & atmospheric indie chiming? 'Creatures of an Hour' appears to combine the hugely popular breathy introversion of bands such as Warpaint or Beach House & the cinematic sensu...view item »


Hintermass
The Apple Tree

Hintermass is the duo project of The Advisory Circle’s Jon Brooks and Tim Felton of Broadcast. In appropriate Ghost Box style, they slink around they combine sweet melodic song with uncanny electronic touches: komische was a particularly strong influence h...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 »


Jessy Lanza
Pull My Hair Back

Okay then here we go. This is the debut album from Jessy Lanza and it's made with the production skills of one of the Junior Boys, a band whose ‘So This is Goodbye’ was a lovely example of melancholic, atmospheric late night electronica. This album starts out pretty ...view item »

Super Furry Animals
Radiator (20th Anniversary Remaster)

Following on from the hugely successful 20th anniversary re-issue of their debut 'Fuzzy Logic' comes this expanded version of the follow up 'Radiator'.The 2CD and download versions contain B sides, alternate versions and unreleased demos whilst the original album appears on the vinyl remastered for 2017 ears. ...view item »


XTC
Wasp Star (Apple Venus Vol II)

Thank the lord the mooted double Apple Venus album was split into two and therefore the magnificent Apple Venus Vol 1 could stand on it's own two feet. Wasp Star was a more muscular, guitar orientated XTC album but lacks the colour provided by the departed Dave Gregory's guitar playing and arrangements. A good album but always t...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 »


Bombay Bicycle Club
So Long, See You Tomorrow

So Long, See You Tomorrow is the 4th album from indie heavyweights Bombay Bicycle Club. The album was produced by singer Jack Steadman in their very own studio. Includes the singles Luna and Carry Me. So Long, See You Tomorrow is available on vinyl box set with bonus 7” and songb...view item »


KT Tunstall
BBC Live Sessions

Over the years, guitar troubadour KT Tunstall has turned up and recorded at the BBC a few times: revisiting the sessions, some of them sounded quite good, so now here we go with a proper EP release. BBC Live Sessions includes some early-period treats, including a Jools Holland performance that kind of b...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. He not only plays keyboard, cello and but contributed half the songs and sung in his unique style.  This is taut and muscular new wave though Russell's contributions sit weirdly at odds with the breezily ...view item »


Benjamin Schoos feat. Dent May & Laetitia Sadier
All Night Every Night / Je Ne Vois Que Vous

Never too early to start fending off the winter blues, eh? Belgium’s Freaksville label boss and dashing crooner Benjamin Schoos’ new song ‘All Night Every Night’, where are found his first all-English lyrics, is packed with enough sappy sunshine to see you at least as far as Chrimbo. Dent May...view item »


Kiran Leonard
Western Culture

The prolific Kiran Leonard returns to Moshi Moshi with a new LP. Western Culture sees him striking a balance between the home-taped maximalism of Bowler Hat Soup and Grapefruit and the emotive chamber-pop that characterised the more recent Derevaun Seraun. The record is given ...view item »


The Beta Band
Heroes To Zeroes

I used to love The Beta Band. The 1st 3 Ep's were so fine..... Since then I've had a love/ hate affair with 'em. They haven't recreated the early magic as much as they used to.... there's the odd track here and there.... Anyhoo they have a new album out which undeniably sounds like 'em and it's a bit more polished...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 »


Manic Street Preachers
Futurology

There is just no stopping them is there. They simply never stop. I’ve wanted them to stop since their very first single but it never ever happens. But now they are cuddly rock veterans they have the media in the palm of their hands and its been a long, long time since they wished AIDS and death on people. All forgotten now. This is...view item »


Proper Ornaments

Stereolab fans this is your CD treasure trove. You get the singles and rarities compilations Switched On, Refried Ectoplasm [Switched On Volume 2], and Aluminum Tunes [Switched On Volume 3] all compiled onto a 4CD anthology on reverse board clam shell box with disks in individual card wallets and insert.

Still Corners
Strange Pleasures

London duo Still Corners’ 2011 debut ‘Creatures of an Hour’ was a real slinky dreampop gem which was very popular here at Norman Towers, so we’ve been waiting with bated breath for their follow-up effort on Sub Pop. Here it is, and it’s l...view item »


Saint Etienne
Home Counties

Finally not an album about London from the veteran pop charmers as they pay tribute to the Home Counties where they grew up. This is a song suite about that area of the UK that spawned Depeche Mode, the Prodigy and Sutton United. Constantly finding new ways of keeping their electro-pop fresh, Saint Etienne are a true British ins...view item »


Beans On Toast
A Bird In The Hand

Another December 1st coming up, thus another honest-lyricked yearly album by Braintree Britfolk troubadour Beans on Toast. This one’s called A Bird in the Hand and as you may expect, themes deal largely with close family. Toast’s father and young daughter receive special attention, which is very sweet. Produ...view item »


Public Practice
Distance is a Mirror

Distance Is A Mirror is the debut EP from a bunch of New Yorkers calling themselves Public Practice. Their approach takes post-punk, disco, Talking Heads and Yellow Magic Orchestra to make a funky, danceable sound with dark yet optimistic lyrics on subjects as simple or as complicated as love.

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 »


Say Lou Lou
Immortelle

Sister act Say Lou Lou drop their sophomore full-length. Immortelle is a polished collection of synth-pop that, with the right marketing, will turn this pair of Elektra and Miranda Kilbey into big stars before long.

Apple Boutique
Love Resistance

Let's go back to 1987 and this rarity on Creation which featured the talents of Phil King (in literally every indie band of the era) and John Mohan who was only in Felt and the Servants.

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.

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 »


Eyedress
Sensitive G

Eyedress is that Philippines guy who made that really unusual anything went 'Shapeshifter' LP a couple of years ago where he mixed hip-hop, dream pop, funk and everything else in a big old pot.

Amy Winehouse
Back To Black (Half-Speed Master)

Half-speed mastering is an incredibly clever and powerful tool in improving sound quality and clarity. When he record is cut everything is done at half the speed enabling the machine to cut at what will be perceived as much higher and lower frequencies when played at full speed. Therefore Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black...view item »


Jamie T
Panic Prevention

Another of last years buzz acts was the intriguing Lahndan pop monkey JAMIE T. Honestly, he sounds like a white indie Dizzee Rascal on his fine debut LP, 'Panic Prevention'. He's got cheek & soul. He's this years Tom Vek (a hugely creative musical magpie, very of the moment). Another of those genre straddling pop ma...view item »


Django Django
Winter's Beach

At the start of 2018, London art-rockers Django Django released their third album, Marble Skies. By that time however, they were so consumed by inspiration that they were already in the studio working on some spiffy new tunes. The result of those sessions was Winter’s Beach, a six track EP. 12” and CD on Because Musi...view item »


East India Youth
Total Strife Forever

As always at this time of year one record becomes the go-to disc for all the various publications who want to remain artificially upbeat about the new year. Imploring you about the genius of some record or other until breaking down and pretending that you like it is the easier option. Remember ‘Merriweather Post Pavillion’ Yeah? Yeah...view item »


New Order & Joy Division
Total (From Joy Division To New Order)

Wanderlust

It's a new album from the always forward-looking synth-pop duo Blancmange -- Neil Arthur and Stephen Luscombe.

The albums consists of ten songs written by Arthur whic...view item »
