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.

Larry Gus
Subservient

Subservient is the fourth release for DFA by Larry Gus AKA Panagiotis Melidis. He sings in Greek and English over a mix of pop-oriented funk and Mediterranean rhythms. The album’s theme centres on how to balance family life with his artistic leanings, and really just how to survive when the world is seeming like everything is going wrong.

Halsey
Manic

So what has happened to her eye then? Looks a right mess. Halsey is a pretty big name then isn't she? People have streamed her music billions of times, she's been on the cover of things, got GRAMMY nominations and all sorts. This, her second album, sounds like a mellow Kate Perry to me but I'm sure the younger members of our office will tell me she's a brilliant subversive pop artist that I'm too old and jaded to enjoy.

The 1975
Notes On A Conditional Form

I’m sure there’s a tingle of anticipation for a new album by The 1975. This one is called Notes On A Conditional Form. The band have been making headlines for their support of environmental campaigner Greta Thunberg as much as they have for their music. With their care for the environment in mind, they have chosen not to shrink wrap the CDs and LPs. Good on ‘em.

Psychemagik
I Feel How This Night Should Look

Psychemagik have existed for some time now and have mostly been known for remixing some pretty big names including Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher and Metronomy. They have been stewing over this album for some time now recording bits of this here and there inviting a slew of guests along for the ride. The result is a diverse and well crafted collection where categorisation is difficult with nods to acid, dance, soft rock, jazz and balearic music all combining to make an eclectic whole.

Moloko
Do You Like My Tight Sweater?

One of the most quietly inventive British-based bands of the late Nineties, Moloko spanned electronica, jazz, soul and house on their 1995 debut album 'Do You Like My Tight Sweater?' - named for singer Roisin Murphy’s (now of a solo career) chat-up line to future bandmate Mark Brydon at a party when they first met.

The Boo Radleys
Wake Up!

Released in 1995, Wake Up! was a watershed moment for The Boo Radleys, who were quietly one of the most innovative bands of the Britpop era. Housing the eternal radio hit ‘Wake Up Boo!’, a Top 10 hit, the album itself topped the British charts, powered by bold, brash choruses and pop-based optimism driving out the darkness and doubt of their previous records.

Marc Almond
Stardom Road

Special gold-coloured vinyl re-issue of Stardom Road, the 13th solo album from former Soft Cell frontman Marc Almond. Having not released a record in four years through recovery from a near-fatal road accident, this collection of covers - ranging from Bowie to Andy Williams - plus one original saw him revive his career.

Twins
New Cold Dream

Twins is the new project by Atlanta-based musician Matt Weiner. He takes influences for the project from the likes of John Maus, Bauhaus, Suicide and Depeche Mode among others. Using this inspiration he has crafted New Cold Dream, a dark electro, synth pop and IDM album that mixes worries of our uncertain times with reason for optimism.

Alex Cameron
Miami Memory

Step aside dad rock, Alex Cameron's here and he's got something called stepdad rock in the shape of Miami Memory. It's hard to know exactly what that means but part of it seems to be about looking out rather than in. Musically we've got overwrought and emotional anthems with a bit of saxophone and church organ for good measure.

Solange
When I Get Home

Earning rave reviews upon its surprise release back in January, Solange’s second studio album When I Get Home at last gets a proper vinyl edition, arriving on a special clear LP. Including insightful highlights like ‘Almeda’, Solange can now surely do no more to shake off the insulting tag of merely being Beyonce’s sister.

Prince
Emancipation

Emancipation was the Prince album that saw him wriggle free of his contract with Warner Bros and he subsequently declared it to be his most important album yet. The freedom let Prince experiment freely with an assortment of genres including house music and blues and even toying with a cover of Joan Osbourne's 'One of Us'. This is its first time on vinyl and it comes in a six LP set on purple (natch) vinyl or easier to handle 3CD set.

Kele
2042

After the acoustic diversion of his last album, 2017’s Fatherland, Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke tacks back to the dancefloor template that informed his previous solo records. 2042, led by the socially and politically aware lead single ‘Jungle Bunny’, is also more like a Bloc Party record than any of his solo material, most similar to the difficult but rewarding A Weekend In The City.

White Lies
To Lose My Life (10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)

We all remember when we were when White Lies released To Lose My Life don't we. Don't we?? Well September 2009 should be indelibly stamped on your brain as the month their debut was unleashed and incredibly went straight to the very top of the UK album chart. Well blow me down with a feather. It managed to score 58 on Metacritic and was described by the Guardian as "promising, if unremarkable" so it's high time we got a tenth anniversary re-issue which thrillingly contains demo and live tracks discovered in bassist Charles Cave's personal cupboard.  

Metronomy
Metronomy Forever

Where has Metronomy’s Joseph Mount been since 2016’s Summer 08 album? Well, he’s been hanging out with Robyn and contributing to her album, Honey. He’s back on home turf now though with another Metronomy album called Metronomy Forever. Working with Robyn and moving from Paris back to England to live on a hill have informed and inspired the new set of songs.

Madonna
True Blue

With her status firmly cemented as a global superstar, Madonna released True Blue in 1986. It was the follow-up to Like A Virgin and showed the singer displaying a wider variety of musical styles. It contained the hits True Blue, La Isla Bonita and the massive hit Papa Don’t Preach. It’s getting a spiffy reissue on crystal clear vinyl.

Madonna
Madonna

So we sell Madonna records now? Yup you read that right. Here is a limited edition clear vinyl edition of her debut album from 1983. It contains a host of predominately self-penned songs several of which would become hits (Borderline, Holiday, Lucky Star) and its feathery dance-pop aesthetic gave a boost to the dance world just as disco had faded from view. She'd go on to have much greater success but Madonna was where it all started for the lady they now call 'The Queen of Pop'.

Madonna
Who's That Girl (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Madonna was no stranger to acting in 1987 when she starred in Who’s That Girl alongside Griffin Dunne. It was her 5th role. She also performed most of the soundtrack, which just happens to be getting a gleaming reissue on crystal clear vinyl. I say she performed most of the soundtrack as it also includes songs by Scritti Politti, Duncan Faure, Club Nouveau and Michael Davidson.

Madonna
Like A Virgin

Like A Virgin was the second album by Madonna, released in 1984, it was the album that propelled her to global superstardom. It’s packed with hits such as the title track, Material Girl and Angel. A lesser known album fact about this album that will go down well today is that it was produced by Nile Rogers. Rogers also plays guitar on the album with his Chic bandmate, the late, great Bernard Edwards playing bass.

Super Furry Animals
Guerrilla

Super Furry Animals third album Guerilla is 20 years old. To celebrate its birthday we have an expanded reissue of the original album which includes a huge 25 bonus tracks. This was the album with the singles Northern Lites and Fire In My Heart, the latter being the one of the band’s more tender moments.

Kazu
Adult Baby

Having made her name as the lead singer of indie-rock veterans Blonde Redhead, Adult Baby represents the first-ever solo album from Kazu Makino. Featuring contributions from some stellar names include Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier, Son Lux’s Ian Chang and none other than the legendary Ryuichi Sakamoto, the album is an opportunity for the star to reveal a new aspect of her personality. 

Cold War Kids
New Age Norms 1

New Age Norms 1 is the new album by Californian indie band Cold War Kids. It’s the band’s 7th album. They’ve come a long way since their second single “We Used To Vacation” hit the radio waves in 2006, cementing their place as a regular festival band with a loyal fan base prepared to part with their cash. One can only assume that this album is the start of some sort of series.

Björk
Greatest Hits

Have you ever listened to Bjork and thought 'this sounds interesting but her back catalogue is sprawling and daunting I just want to hear the best bits'? Well we have the answer in Bjork's Greatest Hits. being Bjork she couldn't just do things normally so asked her fanbase to pick their favourite tracks via an online poll. This is a blessing that means her dreadful It's Oh So Quiet debacle is thankfully missing. Also bear in mind that this was originally released in 2002 so you need to look elsewhere for anything after that. Still, a very useful intro.

Jay Som
Anak Ko

Jay Som is solely responsible for Anak Ko. She was songwriter and musician, producer and engineer. The result is a record that is indisputably hers. Though she proudly wears her influences on her sleeve (Cocteau Twins, the Cure etc...) there is no denying that she makes the realm of dream pop entirely her own. 

Spinning Coin
Vision At The Stars

Wee Scottish indie-pop sensations Spinning Coin return with their first new music since 2017s well regarded 'Permo' LP. Again being released by the Pastels Geographic imprint, this first taster has been co-produced by the Peter Pan of indie-pop himself Stephen Pastel. Surely one of the best of the new indie-pop lot this will appeal to fans of Teenage Fanclub, Orange Juice and Josef K.

They Might Be Giants
Flood

Why is the world in love again? Why are we marching hand in hand? Why are the ocean levels rising up? It's a brand new reissue for 2014, They Might Be Giants' 1990 album 'Flood'! This is the one with 'Birdhouse In Your Soul' and 'Your Racist Friend' and 'Istanbul' and 'We Want A Rock' and you've probably wanted it on vinyl for ages, hooray for this repress!

Belle and Sebastian
Days of the Bagnold Summer

Fiddly-diddly-dee, a new Belle And Sebastian LP. Days Of The Bagnold Summer might be an extremely Belle And Sebastian-type thing to call your record, but it’s actually not a title that the band came up with themselves. Rather, Days Of The Bagnold Summer is Simon Bird’s film of the same name (yes, him from The Inbetweeners), which is itself adapted from a graphic novel by Joff Winterhart. Bird wanted B&S’s 1996 tune ‘Get Me Away From Here I’m Dying’ for the movie, but the band went one better, re-recording both ‘Get Me Away…’ and ‘I Know Where The Summer Goes’ in addition to eleven new tunes.

Grouper
The Man Who Died In His Boat

Originally released in 2013, this album was recorded by Liz Harris alongside her best-known work, Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill. It’s in the same stylistic ballpark - ethereal, heavily reverbed electric guitar and vocals with dark and mysterious undercurrents, sometimes swimming into clearer focus when Harris switches to acoustic. Out of print for a while and now back on CD.

Jenny Hval
The Practice of Love

Musical witch lady Jenny Hval is back to cast her sonic hexes ‘pon us once more. Hval’s seventh LP The Practice Of Love is another fine work of modern-day Gothicism from the Norwegian artist, one in which she leans a little heavier into the pop stuff than she has done previously. Julee Cruise, Visions-era Grimes and Chromatics are the related artists you’re grappling with on The Practice Of Love.

The Big Moon
Walking Like We Do

The Big Moon made a big splash in 2017 with debut album, Love In The 4th Dimension, which contained catchy hits such as Cupid. Now they’re back with their highly anticipated sophomore album, Walking Like We Do. Their previous success shows here as they were shipped off to Atlanta to record with renowned US producer Ben Allen III. Expect big things from The Big Moon.

'Lookout Low' was recorded in rural Wales with esteemed rock producer Ethan Johns, who bottles the lightning of the quintet’s live performances and places it on record.

Amy Winehouse
Frank

Frank was the debut album by Amy Winehouse. She made a massive impact with this upon its release in 2003. Firstly as a major new talent had just unleashed itself on the world and secondly because her lyrics didn’t pull any punches, hence the title.The title is also a nod to one of her heroes, Frank Sinatra.

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 choruses and forceful production. 6 track EP, vinyl or cassette, on Polydor.

Prince
Chaos and Disorder

Chaos and Disorder was the last album Prince made for Warner Brothers before the big falling out. Despite it featuring some of his most addictive pop tunes yet, he refused to promote it and so it kind of slipped away and has been long out of print. Now he's dead and so there's no-one to for them to argue with, Sony have re-pressed it onto purple (he'd like that bit) vinyl.  

Sequoyah Murray
Before You Begin

Sequoyah Murray steps out with an LP on Thrill Jockey. Before You Begin is a set of synth-heavy and somewhat experimental indie-pop tunes, one that draws on the queer-pop stylings of Perfume Genius, Active Child and How To Dress Well while maintaining the questing soul of Calling Out Of Context-era Arthur Russell. This is a really strong debut record.

Robert Sotelo
Infinite Sprawling

Robert Sotelo returns to Upset The Rhythm with another set of charmingly idiosyncratic ballads. Sotelo has always had a knack for combining the intimacy of your classic singer-songwriter fare with the angular quirk of post-punk - think a plugged-in Richard Dawson, John Maus with the effects switched off, or perhaps a more erstwhile King Krule. Infinite Sprawling chronicles changes in Sotelo's life - a move from London to Glasgow, a final trip to visit his mother in Argentina - with affecting sensitivity. This one has the potential to be a cult hit, so maybe cop Infinite Sprawling early in order to claim bragging rights later on.

Ween
The Pod

The Pod was a 1990 album released by Ween way before pods were things like an iPod or a Podcast or a Camping Pod. They were ahead of the curve in the pod stakes. It is said to be their most weird and surreal album. Made on a four track at home with all kinds of tape manipulations and sound effects, the press release suggests that drugs may have been involved.

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 hear a whole new side to Harris. The Original Faces is released by Kranky.

Jerkcurb
Air Con Eden

Air Con Eden is the debut album by Jerkcurb, AKA, Jacob Read. The album is the culmination of critical and commercial success that has seen his songs be streamed millions of times and him play a session on BBC 6 Music for Tom Ravenscroft. Lyrically the album focuses on Read’s real life events with occasional fictitious garnish, whilst musically, Richard Hawley, Blue Velvet and Arctic Monkey’s Tranquility Base & Casino give an idea of where he’s heading.

This re-issue comes with a bonus 7" of rare tracks. Put on your comfiest jumper and dive in.

Sol Seppy
The Bells Of 1 2

Sol Seppy is Sophie Michalitsianos - an English singer/songwriter who grew up in Australia before moving to the states. She contributed to the Sparklehorse albums It’s A Wonderful Life and Good Morning Spider. The Bells of 1 2 is her debut album, originally released in 2006. The influence of Sparklehorse on the album is clear. Comparisons have also been made with Mazzy Star and Cocteau Twins.

Joseph
Good Luck, Kid

US trio Joseph return with their new album, Good Luck, Kid. They have left behind the folk sound of their first album to make a collection meatier pop/rock songs. The album is supposed to play out like a road movie. The themes are positive, about finding yourself and fighting for what’s important. It was produced by Christian “Leggy” Langdon known for his work with Meg Myers and Charlotte OC.

Broken Chanter
Broken Chanter

David MacGregor from Scottish pop lot Kid Canaveral does the solo thing as Broken Chanter collaborating with a hotchpotch of all stars including Emma Kupa of Mammoth Penguins and members of Withered Hand.

Alice Hubble
Polarlichter

The debut album from London-based composer and synthesiser enthusiast Alice Hubley - who records under the spacey-themed name Alice Hubble.

Turnover
Altogether

Virginia band Turnover turn over (ahem) a new leaf on new LP Altogether. Where once this band dealt in angst-ridden emo, now they’re all about the pop stuff. Tracks like ‘Plant Sugar’ skip along with the breezy abandon of Blossoms while ‘Much After Feeling’ is basically Toro Y Moi. There are certainly parallels in development between Turnover and Ceremony.

LCD Soundsystem
Yeah

Yeah indeed, for this 2003 single from then-fledgling act LCD Soundsystem remains one of the finest things James Murphy has put his name to. Knowing, witty and immensely groovy, the two mixes of ‘Yeah’ here helped to solidify what we’ve now come to recognise as the project’s signature sound. The ‘Crass Version’ mines that rich seam of Killing Joke-style punk-funk while the ebullient ‘Pretentious Version’ steers closer to Arthur Russell’s disco endeavours.

Homogenic

Bjork's masterwork. On her fourth record, the Icelandic pop artist started marrying her trip-hop backdrop with a hugely expansive and coldly experimental sound. This record was perhaps her darkest entry yet and did Post one better by boasting an orchestra of several billion -- each making strings swell, drums coalesce or cellos brood around Bjork's darkly moving songs.

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.

Night Flowers
Fortune Teller

London's Night Flowers have slowly been getting known for their emotional dream pop that recalls those early 90s bands that time forgot who trailed in the wake of the likes of the Sundays and Belly. On this their second album they continue to marry '80s and '90s influences for big venue-ready indie pop with jangling, dreamy guitars skirting round Sophie Petit's swooping voice. Straight ahead stuff but with a crucial emotional core that ensures these songs yearn effectively.

Lou Hayter
Cherry On Top

Originally appearing at the end of last year and enjoying heavy rotation on BBC 6Music, this is a 12” single release for ‘Cherry On Top’, a piece of feather-light funk that served as the debut solo single for Lou Hayter. The long-of-memory among you may recognise her as a member of the short-lived New Young Pony Club back in the mid-Noughties. Features instrumental and a-cappella versions on the B-side.

My Life Story
World Citizen

Seven years on from their tentative reunion, anti-Britpop auteurs My Life Story deliver their fourth studio album after a 19-year gap. Fronted by the ever-acidic Jake Shillingford on vocals, always one of the Nineties’ most underrated lyricists, World Citizen was crowd-funded from their fanbase through PledgeMusic, and ought to pick up the thread from where they left off all that time ago. 

Bombay Bicycle Club
Everything Else Has Gone Wrong

Having built up a large and dedicated fanbase over the course of four excellent albums before their hiatus in 2014, the mighty Bombay Bicycle Club will finally break their silence with their fifth LP Everything Else Has Gone Wrong in January 2020. Frontman Jack Steadman says it’s “an album for anyone who’s ever turned to music in a time of need”. With things being the way they are, I think we could all do with that. 

LCD Soundsystem
Confuse The Marketplace 

Classic reissue from 2007 in the shape of Confuse The Market by LCD Soundsystem. This has been unavailable for 7 years, so there should be a bit of scramble to get your mitts on this! It contains the classic slow disco epic Freak Out / Starry Eyes, Hippie Priest Bum Out which featured on James Murphy and Pat Mahoney’s Fabriclive and a reworking of North American Scum which ups the acidity. 12” on DFA.

Courteeners
More. Again. Forever.

Although they’re as much maligned as they are worshipped, Courteeners are undoubtedly one of the very last of the old-fashioned Big British Guitar Bands. In January 2020, Liam Fray and his faithful lieutenants will release their sixth studio album, with the bold but ambiguous title More. Again. Forever. 

Adam Green
Engine of Paradise

With mouth on permanent droopy open mode Adam Green has enjoyed a long and varied career since he formed the Moldy Peaches with Kimya Dawson in the mid '90s. His most recent solo work was a film interpretation of Aladdin in which the cast were all made of papier mache. His 10th solo album Engine of Paradise is perhaps less loopy concerning itself with ruminations on life and the afterlife. He occasional knocks great songs right out of the park so as always this will be an essential listen.

Island
When We’re Still EP

When We’re Still EP is the latest music from Island following their 2018 debut LP, Feels Like Air. The London band trade in earnest indie singer/songwriter type stuff, which is no doubt, destined to be entertaining large crowds at arenas nationwide in the not too distant future. The EP is a mix of new and old material and includes the track Lyra, the first track written by the four-piece.

Joviale
Crisis

Though they’ve only been going for a couple of years, the Blue Flowers imprint have already proven themselves adept at spotting talented young singer-songwriters who operate in that kind of King Krule mode. Joining the likes of Westerman and Puma Blue on the label’s roster is young Londoner Joviale, whose debut EP Crisis is another set of soulful and brooding bedroom indie tracks. We expect Joviale’s star to rise pretty high off the back of this one. Crisis was produced by Bullion, dontcha know.

Ghost Orchard
bunny

Third album from 21 year old musician Sam Hall, who records under the name of Ghost Orchard. Recorded entirely in his bedroom over a three year period that’s seen upheaval in his romantic life, bunny follows on from 2016’s last effort bliss, and is for fans of off-kilter leftfield pop and all-lowercase album titles.

Frankie Cosmos
Close It Quietly

Fourth album proper from Frankie Cosmos, Greta Kline's project that has slowly become a fully fledged band. Close It Quietly, sees the once anti-folk act morph fully into something more like the weirdo-pop of Broadcast and Stereolab. Lyrically we find Kline reflecting on herself, and the state of the world. Who isn't nowadays?

Lower Dens
The Competition

It’s a little strange to think of Lower Dens as elder statesmen of indie, but the dream-pop duo have now been going for nearly a decade. Their fourth studio album, 'The Competition', is befitting of their status in 2019, their normally languorous demeanour now injected with more urgency in a suite of songs examining the dehumanising effects of the twilight of capitalism.

Andre Ethier
Croak In The Weeds

The second in another planned trilogy of three solo albums from former Deadly Snakes frontman André Ethier, Croak In The Weeds could succeed where the Canadian’s other projects previously seized up. Following 2017’s Under Grape Leaves and produced with Sandro Perri, the new collection ought to be another indie-folk triumph.

Lana Del Rey
Norman Fucking Rockwell!

Geographically confused chanteuse Lana Del Rey returns with her sixth album and her first since she discovered swearing. She's pictured on the cover cavorting with none other than the grandson of Jack Nicholson and possibly as a matter of note I should say that it contains fourteen new songs most co-written with fun.'s Jack Antonoff. Buy your copy from Norman Fucking Records.

Mac DeMarco
Salad Days

I have a feeling that Mac DeMarco may be a fan of Minor Threat. Because who actually uses the phrase 'Salad Days' any more? This is his second album proper, featuring more of that incredibly casual and personable crooning that he's built his career on. DeMarco is the sort of musician who seems to be enjoying himself so much that it's difficult not to get swept up by it. 

HTRK
Venus In Leo

Astrology's hot in 2019. 'Venus In Leo' is the fourth album from HTRK, the minimal electronic duo. Theirs is a sound that is finds an intense sadness in mundanity, that is communicated with minimal beats now freed from their noisy shells. As a Leo, I should probably have something to say about the album title. Unfortunately I know literally nothing about astrology.

Jack Peñate
Prayer

One of the many fleetingly massive indie artists who made second records that totally flopped in the mid-Noughties, Jack Peñate returns with his first new music in over ten years. His experience in writing and production in the interim has served him well, to which this new 7” single ‘Prayer’ attests.

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 singles (or their famous covers), as often as it might crop up in retrospective lists and talking heads documentaries, Kate Bush's fifth studio album will never get old. It's just too good.

Angela
Fantasy

Angela were a German husband and wife duo made up of Angela and Ingo Werner. Ingo was classically trained and had played in My Solid Ground and Baba Yaga in the early ‘70s. Angela recorded two albums before being dropped by their label. Their 1981 single 'Fantasy' was created entirely software designed by Ingo making him some sort of electro-pop whizz.

A Certain Ratio
acr:box

Legends of the otherwise non-existent Manchester punk/dance/funk/industrial scene (yes, they’re out there on their own), A Certain Ratio have been reissuing a lot of stuff recently. acr:box gathers together everything that hasn’t been reissued. Singles, B-sides, alternate versions, their cover of Talking Head’s classic Houses in Motion and so on. Plenty to get stuck into for the hardcore fan or even a very inviting introduction to these Factory Records stalwarts. Deluxe 7LP or 4CD box set on Mute.

Cigarettes After Sex
Cry

Promising more blissful, narcoleptic dream-pop after the success of his early singles, Greg Gonzalez delivers his second Cigarettes After Sex album, Cry. Recorded and finessed by Gonzalez himself during sessions in the middle of the night in Spain, it’s another suite of meditations on intimacy and heartbreak.  * Pre-order the album on any format to be in with the chance of winning a test pressing of the record! * ** Alternatively, email phil(at)normanrecords.com and we'll stick you into the prize draw

Carly Rae Jepsen
Dedicated

Emotion by Carly Rae Jepsen was, in this humble writer's opinion, one of the greatest albums ever made. And it would have been tough for anyone to match the giddy highs that album produced. On 2019's Dedicated, she more or less succeeds, creating an album just as suited to tidying your house, as it is to bouncing around with glee at a show.

Vase
Pixelated Red Squirrel

This takes me back to the mid 90s and the brilliant Bristol scene which included Movietone, Flying Saucer Attack and Crescent. Stephen Lane aka Vase was always on the outside of that scene wandering around it like Noel Coward evading a Velvet Underground rehearsal. He is still making his quaint English songs but this time from the flatlands of Norfolk. This 13 track self released CD is a long awaited return from this perennial outsider.

Parsnip
When The Tree Bears Fruit

You know Giggs? Yes, as in the rapper. Nowadays he’s all about drinking cinnamon tea with Drake, but back at the start of the career he was a proper hard-nosed MC who made tough, nasty street-rap. However, because he came from England rather than the United States, his bars were also full of the humorous everyday tit-for-tat one found in grime. One of his early singles, 2008’s ‘Uummm!’, is notable for two reasons. The first is that it cemented one of Giggs’ catchphrases, which is basically him just grunting loudly on-beat ('uhhngh!'). The second is that features an all-time great lyric; ‘Hollow Meets Blade and that Ard sh*t/Came up from the dirt like a parsnip’. ‘Came up from the dirt like a parsnip’ is the sort of thing that lodges in your brain for life and influences all of your subsequent interactions with the word ‘parsnip’. As such, it’s hard for this Norman Records™ chum-swiller to listen to 'When The Tree Bears Fruit', the debut LP from Australian band Parsnip, with fresh ears. Sure, this is an album of charming twee-punk in the vein of Girlpool or The Courtneys. Yeah, songs like ‘Lift Off!’ render positivity in melody in a manner that Jonathan Richman would be proud of. Of course, it’s a winning opening gambit from a group that we’re rooting for. But you know what? On every single one of these indie-pop ditties I’m just waiting for someone to barge up to the mic, shout out the SN1 crew and then launch into a verse of Dracula-voiced gutter-rap. And until we get Giggs to reprise his verse from ‘Uummm!’ over one of Parsnip’s summery jangles, this Norman Records™ text-chump won’t be able to sleep easy in his bed. Parsnip, Hollowman, you know what to do. Uhhngh!

The S.L.P.
The S.L.P.

One for Kasabian fans here - the S.L.P. is the new project from Kasabian guitarist and massive Leicester City fan, Serge Pizzorno. The name of the project, if you’re trying to work out what they stand for, are Serge’s initials - Serge Lorenzo Pizzorno. Musically, it’s similar to his parent band but there are some differences. For example, rapper, Little Simz, features on lead single 'Favourites'.

Free Love
Luxury Hits

Free Love are Suzanne Rodden and Lewis Cook who used to ply their trade as Happy Meals. They have previously released on their native Scottish labels Night School and Optimo. Luxury Hits is seen as a progression of their sound - blending balearic, synth-pop, psychedelia, italo and acid.  Tours with The Flaming Lips and Liars back-up the notion that they don’t like to be confined to one style or genre. 8 track 12” EP on Full Ashram.

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 flew out of traps in the early ‘00s with mega hits such as ‘Every Day I Love You Less and Less’ and ‘I Predict A Riot’. These songs were taken from their debut album, Employment, which is now available, reissued on heavyweight vinyl, through B-Unique/Polydor.

David Bowie
The Man Who Sold The World

Parlophone remastered and reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these versions are being released individually too. The Man Who Sold The World has a strong claim to being both the first glam rock record and the album on which David Jones truly became David Bowie. 180g vinyl reissue.

Fake News Trending sees the long-awaited union of two underground legends. Lo-fi pioneer R. Stevie Moore and lounge jazz/punk impresario, Gary Wilson have crossed paths plenty in the past, but never recorded together.

Clive Tanaka y su Orquesta
Pre-Sunrise Authority

The first new album in almost a decade from the reclusive musician Clive Tanaka, Pre-Sunrise Authority is designed for long journeys and inspired by the friendships that make those kinds of journeys bearable. The eight tracks play like a jumble of influences drawn from different times, places and feelings.

Aldo
Trembling Eyelids EP

An EP of cinematic indie-pop from Brazilian duo Aldo here. Trembling Eyelids is full of that sort of anthemic, chest-swelling bedroom songwriting that has worked so well for the likes of Hot Chip and Metronomy down the years. There’s also a slightly hypnagogic vibe to cuts like Trembling Eyelids’ title-track that will please fans of Ariel Pink and Johnny Jewel.

Amy Studt
Happiest Girl In The Universe

Title possibly ironic on an album by a singer-songwriter whose career perhaps mirrors Scott Walker in that Amy Studt had two tries at being a bona fide pop star in the early 2000's before retreating to a rural cottage to plot her next move. She returned from exile with darker and more tortured songs of which Happiest Girl In the Universe is the latest batch. Here she ruminates bleakly on her life journey on an album of equal parts failure and redemption all the while accompanying herself on an assortment of instruments all topped off with her exceptional voice and arrangement talents. Sometimes it's the tortoise that wins the race.

Velvet Negroni
NEON BROWN

When people are asked to name musicians from Minneapolis they tend to get stuck pretty much as soon as they say Prince. Perhaps the rapidly-rising Velvet Negroni will be able to help add to that list in the near future. NEON BROWN, the debut LP from the one born Jeremy Nutzman (what a name), contains a sort of hybrid hip-hop/r ‘n’ b style that the likes of Frank Ocean and The Weeknd have struck gold with in recent years. And yes, Velvet Negroni does sound a bit like Prince at times as well.

The Slow Show
Lust and Learn

The Slow Show, as well as being my latter day footballing nickname, are an indie band from Manchester who combine elements of The Blue Nile, Talk Talk and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. As you can imagine from a band with such a name, their songs unfold gradually revealing their greatness, unlike my latter day 5-a-side career. Lust and Learn is their third album. LP and CD on PIAS.
