The Pearlfishers
Love & Other Hopeless Things

Ah, The Pearlfishers! following a Scottish tradition for blissful alternative pop music without really being noticed since 1991. Obvious points of reference are Surf's Up-era Beach Boys, The Beatles and Teenage Fanclub but there’s elements of Prefab Sprout and Michael Head that appear in the songs of head Pearfilsher David Scott too. Love & Other Hopeless Things is their new album. LP and CD on Marina.

The Stone Roses
Second Coming

When this Norman Records™ description writer was just a wee nipper he read something in the NME that said the journalist in question had a cat that was more influential than The Second Coming. I’m not sure why, but this has always stuck with me. It’s also demonstrably not true - even though people rag on The Stone Roses’ sophomore LP for the sole reason of it not being released in 1989, The Second Coming is still a perfectly acceptable collection of Madchester bops … isn’t it? Whatever, it’s still shifted more units than that moggy ever will, so get lost Puss!

Grace Lightman
Silver Eater

Judging by the cover of Grace Lightman’s debut LP, it would appear that the title - Silver Eater - is to be taken literally. While it’s not exactly good practice to eat silver or encourage others to do so, things pick up when you get past that bit and on to the music. This is electro-pop at once poised and off-kilter. Silver Eater is not dissimilar to St. Vincent’s recent output.

IDER
Learn To Let Go / Body Love

Guess it's been a while since you needed physical records to become the next big thing. Two-girls-from-North-London duo IDER have been causing digital ripples on the interblogs since they released Sorry way back in 2016. Now they've decided to join the cult of actual vinyl with their first ever physical release, featuring smooth and gentle electronic singles Learn To Let Go and Body Love, as well as two accompanying remixes.

Ada Lea
What We Say In Private

Musician and artist, Ada Lea, hails from Quebec, Canada. She seems just as at home with a double bass as she does with an electric guitar. Her inspiration comes from a number of sources - artists such a Frida Kahlo and Eva Hesse, the writing of Sylvia Plath, folk/blues troubadour Karen Dalton and all-round genius Nina Simone. What We Say In Private was borne out of a sleepless, yet productive, period of time following a break-up.

Rhye
Spirit

Having spent nearly five years following up his successful debut with 2018’s sophomore effort Blood, Mike Milosh’s Rhye project wastes no time in delivering more new music with eight-track mini-album Spirit. Written around a baby grand piano gifted to him by his girlfriend, Milosh achieves a sense of calm spirituality.

Swimming Girls
Existential Fears

Swimming Girls were put together as a project to write a song whilst they were students in Bath. They bonded over a love of The Cure, Culture Club, Cyndi Lauper, David Lynch and the Winona Ryder/Christian Slater film, Heathers. They liked being a band, so became a band. Existential Fears is their new EP, with four songs spread across two 7” singles.

Great Dad
Great Dad

Great Dad are an electronic duo from London with a DIY aesthetic. Their weird electronic sounds are met with vocals that have been through all sorts of manipulation. What we can draw from this self-titled, self-released cassette is that good or bad, everything seems to balance out in the end. The pair also have another, guitar orientated band, Worm Hears.

Public Service Broadcasting
White Star Liner

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

IDER
Emotional Education

There’s been a buzz about Ider for a while now. Their debut album, Emotional Education, arrives amongst great anticipation. The electro pop duo are flatmates Lily Sommerville and Megan Markwick from London. Their album, as you might guess from the title, explores different aspects of our emotions whilst asking a few questions as well as coming up with a few answers.

Gorillaz
The Fall

The Fall is the fourth album by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett’s cartoon band, Gorillaz. It was recorded in the good ol’ US of A and originally released in 2011. The coup achieved by the band here was to get soul legend, Bobby Womack, to appear on the album. It also features Paul Simonon from The Clash. Simonon has also collaborated with Albarn in The Good, The Bad and The Queen.

Oasis
(What’s The Story) Morning Glory? (Remastered)

Following on from 'Definitely Maybe', Big Brother are reissuing Oasis' second record and Britpop standard, 'What's The Story (Morning Glory)'. It will be available as CD, double LP or deluxe CD - the latter of which includes a 56 page hardback book, demos of "Hello" and "She's Electric", a replica 12", a replica cassette and a bunch of live tracks.  Just what the world needs, eh?

Bleached
Don’t You Think You’ve Had Enough

The Clavin sisters straighten themselves out for their third Bleached album, appropriately titled Don’t You Think You’ve Had Enough. That struggle for sobriety has led to some of the group’s most honest writing yet, with former Vampire Weekend producer Shane Stoneback ensuring they’ve lost none of their melodic precision.

Darren Hayman
12 Astronauts

British indie legend Darren Hayman, formerly of cult favourites Hefner, brings us his 18th solo album 12 Astronauts. Released in the same year as the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, the concept is simple - 12 men have set foot on the Moon, and there’s one song for each of them. Lucky for some.

David Sylvian
Gone To Earth

Gone to Earth was the second solo album by David Sylvian and followed on from his debut Brilliant Trees. It's a double album full of brooding imagery and who else but Sylvian could have artists as diverse as Robert Fripp, Bill Nelson, John Taylor, Steve Nye appear as guests on the same album. Also just look at his hair.

SOAK
Grim Town

22-year-old Northern-Irish singer-songwriter SOAK releasing her second full-length album, Grim Town. We haven’t heard the whole thing yet, but the first two singles Knock Me Off My Feet and Everybody Loves You suggest it’s got plenty of great and catchy pop songs to make you wonder what you've done with your life so far.

Death And Vanilla
The Tenant

Here is a first vinyl press for Death and Vanilla's unreleased live score for 'The Tenant' (Roman Polanski). They recorded it in 2015 in Spain alongside a showing of the film and shows the bands at their most cinematic, avant garde and minimalist.  Amazing that people still have anything to do with Polanski's work but it's a funny old world.

Karen O feat. Michael Kiwanuka

Phoenix
Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

Phoenix’s Lisztomania was the sound of the summer in 2009; the poppy, indie, feel-good track just perfect for having a right good dance to. The album is a treat for anyone hoping for a lesson in alternative rock joy. This French band really know how to hit all the right buttons, and even better, the right notes.

The third single to be released from the upcoming sophomore album by London Grammar Truth Is A Beautiful Thing. Following on from Rooting For You and Big Picture the trio continue to explore further into cinematic pop territories. Limited 7” features a track not on the album on it’s B-side - Control.

Bloc Party
Silent Alarm Live

One of the most well-received, influential and fondly-remembered British indie debuts of the Noughties, Silent Alarm by Bloc Party gets the official live album treatment. Recorded from various performances throughout 2018’s European tour, including the memorable Ally Pally homecoming, the songs still sound crystalline and inventive today. 

Drab Majesty
Modern Mirror

Where most musicians opt for a brief sojourn in that there Berlin to get their creative juices flowing (something in the water I've heard), Drab Majesty opted for the Athens in Greece. Modern Mirror is the result, a guitar saturated dark synth pop interpretation of the Greek mythology that asks what it is to love. On Dais.

The Wannadies
Yeah

You may not know this but the Wannadies did another album other than Be A Girl and another song other than 'You and Me'. For proof, here it is. It's called Yeah and it was released in 1999. It sees them leaning towards a more electronic sound with some danceable grooves. It contains some of the songs the band plays live whilst everyone waits for 'You and Me'.

Xiu Xiu
Girl with Basket of Fruit

Having briefly set Xiu Xiu aside to drop an album under his own name, Jamie Stewart is back on his xiulshit. The project's latest LP, Girl With Basket Of Fruit, is a frantic listen intended to convey the general mayhem of emotion that is being alive in 2018. It does a pretty good job, too - try the feverish, Scott Walker-inspired ‘Scisssssssors’.

Kayla Guthrie
Falling Star

Katie Guthrie floats over deep beats that sound like they might be lost Bowery Electric tracks with a pinch of Julia Holter. Each of Falling Star’s tracks creates its own universe, but the title track is probably our favorite: an ethereal 8-minute journey, grappling for sure footing but never quite finding it.

Kate Bush
Aerial

In 2005, Kate Bush returned to recorded music for the first time in 12 years, with the beautiful Aerial. This is her only double album, featuring the two sides A Sea of Honey and A Sky of Honey, which is notably one long single suite about a summer’s day. Aerial has been remastered, and is now available to you on CD and vinyl again!

Anna Meredith
FIBS

One of the most eagerly awaited follow-ups in recent memory for alternative music, composer Anna Meredith announces her sophomore studio album FIBS. Doing what all great artists should and taking a different tack, the widescreen maximalism and energetic rhythms make it stand apart from 2016’s reputation-making Varmints. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

David Byrne
Grown Backwards (Deluxe Edition)

Grown Backwards was David Byrne’s first for Nonesuch Records. It was originally released in the weird non-vinyl times that were 2004, so this reissue, 15 years later, is the first time it’s been released on vinyl. It sees Byrne being uncharacteristically personal and emotional. It includes a duet with Tropicalia star Caetano Veloso and a bunch of extra tracks. Double LP on Nonesuch.

audiobooks
Friends In The Bubble Bath Remixes

Everyone is a fan of audiobooks except us at Norman Records. And maybe that's not fair on the others who work here  - it probably just comes down to me not liking them. I tell you who does like them though, Welsh songstress Gwenno, and the guy from Factory Floor both of which are really happy to provide remixes. (David) Wrench does a mix too but he's already in the band so doesn't count.

London Grammar
Big Picture

With a follow to 2014’s If You Wait due out later in 2017, London Grammar offer up the second single to come from their new album. Produced by Jon Hopkins, Big Picture is a rolling cinematic piece that pushes the band further away from their power pop ballads into something a bit more succinct and grand.

Akiko Yano
Iroha Ni Konpeitou

Hailing from the heady days of 1977, its Akiko Yano’s brilliant album Iroha Ni Konpeitou, boosted to a wider audience through WEWANTSOUNDS quality reissue job. With sessions in (and musicians from) both Tokyo and New York, Yano was able to create a fabulously funky kind of pop beauty. Features Haruomi Hosono and David Spinozza!

Jay-Jay Johanson
Fever

Accompanying four-track 12” single release to go with Jay-Jay Johanson’s new studio album Kings Cross. Boasts exclusive Jeanne Added duet ‘Fever’, album tracks ‘Heard Somebody Whistle’ and ‘Not Time Yet’, plus a bonus dub version of ‘Not Time Yet’. Given his Nordic upbringing, it should be no surprise to hear his vocals have been described as "melancholic".

Gomez
Liquid Skin (20th Anniversary Edition)

After Gomez recorded most of their debut, Bring It On, in a garage on a four track, its success meant that follow-up Liquid Skin enjoyed a very different birth. The album was recorded in top-notch studios, allowing them more sonic scope with the music being informed by their experiences of touring America. 

Stereo Total
Ah! Quel Cinéma!

French/German lo-fi garage/electronic duo Stereo Total release their 17th album Ah! Quel Cinema! It is an album that they are so proud of they’ve put two exclamation marks in the title. All you really need to know, however, is that on of them is called Francoise Cactus - she's the French half. On Tapete.

National Jazz Trio Of Scotland
Standards Vol. V

National Jazz Trio Of Scotland, in case you weren’t aware, are of course no such thing, being instead Bill Wells and collaborators. Standards Vol. V makes great use of Gerard Black’s tenor vocals. Some of the selections are true Standards (something from Fiddler On The Roof, a Scots ballad and a song from Shakespeare), and some are original. All are lush. Released by Karaoke Kalk.

Disclosure
Moonlight

Critically acclaimed and commercially successful Surrey-based electronic duo, Disclosure delve into previously uncharted waters with their new mini-LP, Moonlight. The tracks are a mix of African rhythms, vocal jazz, disco and deep house - sample based and picked from genres that the pair have always loved, but never recorded. 180g limited edition mini-LP on Island.

Imperial Teen
Now We Are Timeless

Now We Are Timeless is the sixth album by US indie-rockers, Imperial Teen. The band feature Roddy Bottum, formerly of Faith No More. This is their first album in 7 years, so all you fans out there may have been missing them. I, on the other hand, assumed that their 1996 debut, Seasick, featuring the catchy single, You’re One, was a one-off event. How wrong I was.

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. This limited-edish 12” sees Lennox retreating into the deeper frequencies, combining his trademark Panda Bear-iness with freeform experimentations and non-linear song structures.

3 x 4

3 x 4 is a compilation album featuring The Bangles (yes, they were cool), Rain Parade, The Three O’Clock and Dream Syndicate covering each other’s songs. The bands were all part of the Paisley Underground scene of the early-mid ‘80s. All songs were recorded in 2018. Double LP and CD on Yep Roc.

Jose Gonzalez
Let It Carry You Remixes

2 rather different takes on Jose Gonzalez’s material, taking his soft, warm, folky melodicism and filtering them through banks of electronics. Holy Ghost! do an Italo disco flavoured cut of Let It Carry You, whereas Dino Soccio’s goes for a more mellow-groove disco approach. Lovely approaches from both! 12” on Peacefrog.

Ian Brown
First World Problems

The wonky alt-rock wizard of Warrington and Stone Roses alumnus Ian Brown concludes a decade off and leads comeback album Ripples with new earworm ‘First World Problems’. Brown’s disdain for those who dwell on those titular problems is palpable. He even becomes irate enough to rhyme ‘crazy’ with ‘lazy’.

Felt
The Pictorial Jackson Review

The Pictorial Jackson Review is not only brilliantly titled but is one of the best of the latter day Felt records. It's full of wonderfully brief tunes which more often than not sound comically in thrall to Bob Dylan. Try listening to How Spook Got Her Man without thinking of the grizzled troubadour.

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.

Ex:Re

Ex:Re, pronounced Ex Ray or even X-Ray, is the new solo project from Daughter guitarist and vocalist, Elena Tonra. Her eponymous debut is a break-up album, sort of. It existence stems from a need for an emotional release following a relationship break-up but none of the songs mention the break-up or the relationship. Features the single, ‘Romance’.

Jasmine Minks

Most of you will remember Alan McGee’s Creation label, but do you remember The Jasmine Minks? The Aberdeen indie-pop band were the first band McGee signed way back in 1984. They released a bunch of singles and four of their six albums on the label. The last time we heard from them was the Poppy White EP in 2010. Now they’re back with Step By Step b/w Gravity.

Suzi Wu
Error 404

The aura of London punk wafts among TikTok nihilism in Suzi Wu’s acerbic new electro-pop release. Named for an analogy between crippling hangovers and the failure of a browser to communicate with the requested page, Error 404 finds her at a heavier, grimier sound than that of the Teenage Witch EP. Your generous purchase will help fund the artist’s future aspirin use.

Keel Her
With Kindness

Winchester's finest Keel Her was once extremely prolific with a host of releases going back to when Rose Keeler Schaefler was just 14 and indeed made an album with similarly prolific guy R Stevie Moore. Things have ben quiet in the last few years as she battled other demons but now she is back with a new splurge of material which will hopefully cement the promise shown by her earlier releases.

Natalie Prass
The Future and the Past

Natalie Prass was so appalled at the Trump election result that she re-wrote her album to reflect her swirling emotions. She then chose to wear a bow-tie on the album sleeve but the less said about that the better. 'The Future and the Past' taps into 80s pop, 90's r&b with some emotional ballads thrown in amongst a myriad of technicolour grooves.

Ta Da

J. McFarlane breaks temporarily from Twerps to pursue a solo project. A minimalist construction of keyboards, feather-touch guitars, wind instrumentation and songwriting that can only be summed up by the irritating word 'quirky', Ta Da was originally issued in her native Australia via Hobbies Galore, but now gets a worldwide release on Night School.

SadGirl
Water

The lack of space in SadGirl’s name is important. Water is an album of double-retro piano-led pop that yearns for that time in the ‘70s when people loved remembering the moonlit pop of the ‘50s - albeit with a distinctly modern edge. Google Sad Girl with a space, however and you’ll find yourself in a different sound world, listening to some brooding electronica. On Suicide Squeeze.

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

(There’s Always) Something On My Mind was the debut single by The Pale Fountains from 1982. The band was lead by Michael Head who went on to form Shack and make great albums with The Strands and The Red Elastic Band. The A side is reminiscent of Orange Juice, whilst on the B-side, Just A Girl, you can hear the influence Love have had on Michael Head. 7” coloured vinyl, includes poster, limited to 500 copies on Optic Nerve.

Family Jewels

Marina & The Diamonds’ albums are being reissued! Family Jewels was her debut record, the first we heard of her pop bangers and her dramatic, heavily-stylised vocals. Includes her first big hit ‘I Am Not A Robot’, which you’ll probably remember. Vinyl LP reissue out on Atlantic.

Sarasara
Orgone

As anyone who knows their Peep Show can attest, negative orgones are generally to be avoided while positive orgones should be hunted down with glee. Sarasara’s sophomore LP is an Orgone that falls into the latter category - if a guest spot from Peter Doherty doesn’t scream benign energy then we just don’t know what does. On this record the French chanteuse spools out electronic pop of the sort that one tends to associate with FKA Twigs.

Olympia
Flamingo

Australian singer/songwriter and guitarist, Olivia Jayne Bartley, makes music under the name Olympia. Flamingo is her second album, following on from 2016’s Self Talk. Judging by lead track, Hounds, Flamingo will be an album of punchy, 6 Music-friendly alt-pop which could well shift a few units.

Even if you are literally New Order, having a Hot Chip remix adorn your single must still be very exciting. Can they do any wrong?

The CD version comes with remixes from 3 other artists too. On Mute.

Blaenavon
Let's Pray / I Will Be The World

Let’s Pray is the second track from Blaenavon’s upcoming debut album and it certainly sounds like the real deal. Some heavy bass circling around some quiet-quiet-loud guitar and stellar vocals. It reminds me of The Maccabees or a rockier Alt-J. Backed with I Will Be The World, out now on Transgressive.

Hot Chip
A Bath Full of Ecstasy

How nice of them. Hot Chip got lots of pleasure from making this latest album of theirs and they want to pass that joy onto the listener. Some may say that it would have been even nicer of them to keep it to themselves. That said if they bring some joy into some peoples world who are we to argue. Expect joyful dance pop led by a tiny voice.

The project’s debut features Sampha, Giggs, Green Gartside and more.

Fake Laugh
Honesty / Surrounded

We loved his debut self titled album from last year which promised a new talent who could get close to the classic 80s indie songwriters like Roddy Frame or Paddy McAloon. Kamran Khan has the sort of talent that it's hard to bottle  - a fluid melodicism that makes his dream pop glide above everything else in the genre.  

Lazy Day
Letters

Letters is the latest in a line of singles and EPs, including an RSD split single with Tuff Love, from London’s dreamy indie/grunge four-piece Lazy Day. The band started as a solo bedroom project of Tilly Scantlebury before expanding to a four-piece to take on the world. Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq and Gideon Coe have all given 6 Music airtime to the band. Limited edition 10" blue sparkle coloured vinyl on Weird Cool.

Carwyn Ellis & Rio 18
Joia!

Welsh genius Carwyn Ellis, a member of The Pretenders and also responsible for a while host of eclectic side-projects such as Colorama and Bendith, presents a new backing band Rio 18 for his latest album Joia! Mixing up tropicalia, cumbia and other Latin musical influences with his own folk leanings, it’s a plea against populism and nascent fascism.

Juramento Mantarraya

Isabel Fernández Reviriego - the former singer of Charades - comes through with her latest LP as Aries. Juramento Mantarraya is a delightful record that kaleidoscopes a multitude of styles into a bright and shiny electro-indie sound. This album bursts at the seams with ideas, and Reviriego is a charismatic ball of positivity up front. Dirty Projectors would be pleased to have made Juramento Mantarraya.

Juno-nominated singer, all-round auteur and Botticelli fan Lydia Ainsworth presents her third studio album.

This is pop music produced with the ear of a composer, which finds a place for both live and programmed instrumentation.

Björk
Post

Post-Bjork? Her third solo record followed on from the gleeful and smooth Debut, and offered more of the same with slight experimental tinges that would reveal a more thoughtful and endlessly imaginative artist. With a huge backing band behind her and a knack for the sinister, Post started to hint at a new incarnation.

  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Björk
Vespertine

At the time, just after the turn of a new century, Vespertine felt like a logical progression from Homogenic, released four years previously. The increased orchestral presence is rich and lush, backed with more considered, detailed beats and songs which travel from the dark and folkloric to movingly romantic.

  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Björk
Debut

It's called Debut because Bjork may be an accomplished, brilliant, wise pop musician, but she is also apparently a liar (in this small, irrelevant case only). This is actually her second solo record, and it's the best place to find the trip-hop, soft dance, good time version of an artist who went on to be a lot more elusive and challenging than this. "Crying" is actually laughing.

Alfie Templeman
Sunday Morning Cereal EP

‘BBC Music Introducing…’ favourite Alfie Templeman unveils his second EP release at the age of just 16. Presented on 10” cream vinyl, Sunday Morning Cereal sees the prodigiously talented ‘indie R&B’ musician follow up on his brilliantly received 2018 single ‘Like An Animal’. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Mega Bog
Dolphine

Mega Bog is the somewhat misleading recording name of Erin Elizabeth Birgy. Misleading because her music mixes Joni Mitchell’s jazz-flecked albums with Laurie Anderson’s late ‘80s output rather than some sludgy-riffing rock band the name may conjure up. On her fifth album, Dolphine, she is joined by members of Big Thief, Hand Habits and Iji. On Paradise Of Bachelors.

Keane
Perfect Symmetry

The point at which Keane’s bafflingly enormous popularity finally started to wane, 2008's Perfect Symmetry saw the trio try to gently expand upon the piano-led formula that had brought them such ubiquity in the mid-Noughties. This is a 180g heavyweight vinyl re-issue to mark the album’s tenth anniversary.

Night Moves
Can You Really Find Me

Minneapolis duo, Night Moves, were likened to The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev and Band of Horses when they hit town with their debut album Colored Emotions back in 2012. Their music was based on classic American pop and rock - Beach Boys, Fleetwood Mac, Todd Rundgren - and twisted to make new cosmic shapes. Can You Really Find Me is their fourth album and finds them maturing. They’ve still got the hooks and the riffs, but now there’s an added emotional quality too.

Joe Meek
I Hear A New World

Joe Meek’s amazing vision of spacey DIY strange-pop is beautifully represented on his 1960 album I Hear A New World: An Outer Space Music Fantasy, reissued here by Poppydisc. Meek was the master of getting unusual effects out of cheap (or no) equipment, his natural curiosity and ingenuity shining through in every sound.

Casi & The Blind Harpist
Sunflower Seeds EP

Debut EP from Casi & The Blind Harpist. On Sunflower Seeds EP Casi shows off her powerful voice and knack for the expansive and soaring. The throughline is a good understanding of the music of her Welsh and Irish heritage which serve to distinguish her from fellow soar-merchants Florence & The Machine. On Chess Club.

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!

Daughter Of Swords
Dawnbreaker

Break up albums have a habit of being mopey and sad. And that's okay! But these forget the other kind of break up. The kind that offers a fresh start and a new beginning. Daughter Of Swords' Dawnbreaker is just that. Optimistic, hopeful, and grounded. Alexandra Sauser-Monnig captures that hope, and the fear, with this collection of comforting indie-folk songs.

Echo Ladies
Echo Ladies

If you’re looking for the precise intersection of Alvvays, The Jesus and Mary Chain and New Order, then Echo Ladies’ EP could be exactly what you need for those late nights lying (alone) on your bedroom floor. Defining their sound as, “the feeling of nostalgia and hope for the future mixed with angst”, these Swedish school-friends are giving shoegaze the defiant female vocals it needs. 

Bamboo
Daughters Of The Sky

Third studio album from Bamboo, the project formed by Peepholes’ Nick Carlisle and Trash Kit’s Rachel Horwood. Taking inspiration from the florid beauty of classic folk and the pristine ambient productions of Berlin-era Bowie, Daughters of the Sky is thematically underpinned by motherhood and nature. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Pop / Experimental Pop / Electro-Pop

Liela Moss
A Little Bit Of Rain

Such is her desire to have things neatly categorised, Leila Moss follows up her impressive debut, My Name Is Safe In Your Mouth, with an EP of songs about rain. A Little Bit Of Rain features her versions of tracks by Eurythmics, The Cure, Scott Walker and Ann Peebles. The title nods in the direction of ‘60s folk icon Karen Dalton, who has been a huge influence on Moss.

Echobelly
On

Everything was simpler back in the ‘90s, wasn’t it. New Labour. ‘Three Lions’. The Millennium Bug. Lovely old job. Slap bang in the middle of the decade we found ourselves contending with Echobelly’s sophomore LP On, a fine collection of Breeders-inspired Britscuzz. Fast forward to the present day and you’ve got yourself this here reissue.

Weval
The Weight

Amsterdammer electro post-pop duo Weval return to Kompakt with The Weight. But are they a lesser or a greater Weval these days? The signs point to the latter with The Weight showing the pair’s knack for channelling all their disparate inspirations into warm, coherently multicoloured pop swish.

Vital Idles
EP

Glasgow’s Vital Idles follow up 2018’s debut LP, Left Hand, with a new EP simply titled, EP. Their music recalls The Velvet Underground, Young Marble Giants and The Raincoats in a kinda post-punk-meets-indie-pop way. So, this is a good thing, we are sure of it. 4-track 7” EP on Upset The Rhythm.

Stephen Duffy
I Love My Friends

While it made very little commercial impression at the time, former Duran Duran co-founder and The Lilac Time member Stephen Duffy garnered rave reviews, and a cult following including a certain Robbie Williams, for his emotionally raw 1998 solo album I Love My Friends. Just over two decades later, it receives a well-deserved release on vinyl for the first time ever.

Cherushii & Maria Minerva
s/t

A beautiful but bittersweet EP here from Cherushii and Maria Minerva. The pair’s work on their recorded collaborative debut was cut short by Cherushii’s tragic death in the Ghost Ship fire. Minerva has since completed the unfinished EP, forming a wonderful queer-pop synthy tribute. EP on 100% Silk.

Divino Nino
Foam

Heavily rhythmical and soulful Latinx guitar-pop rules on Foam, the latest effort from bi-lingual Spanish/English outfit Divino Nino. Hailing from Chicago but founded on a childhood friendship from Bogota between between guitarist Camilo Medina and bassist Javier Forero, these ten tracks are masterfully observed marriages of different musical traditions. 

Travis
Live at Glastonbury 1999

Double-LP live album of Travis’ momentous set on the Other Stage at Glastonbury 1999. With their star-making second album The Man Who released only a month before, their televised performance shot them to international recognition. Those who were there remember a gloriously sunny day being serendipitously interrupted by a downpour during ‘Why Does It Always Rain On Me?’ 

Travis
The Man Who (20th Anniversary Edition)

20th anniversary re-issue of The Man Who, the multi-platinum, BRIT Award-winning album that briefly put Travis at the top table of British guitar acts in the aftermath of Britpop. Beyond gutted that noted Travis-fan and post-Britpop theorist Robin no longer works at Norman because his description would have been a lot better than this. 

The Wedding Present
Going, Going…

Could you have ever imagined that in 2016 there'd be a new Wedding Present album? They have seemingly been content to rest on their nostalgia laurels over the past few years but they show that there is some fire still there with this 20 track album of linked songs which begins with four instrumentals.  "Some things just don't change" sings David Gedge on 'Bear' and he's still wittering on about break ups and relationships and stuff like that but there's nothing here that suggests that this won't appeal to long term fans. 

Laura Veirs
Carbon Glacier

Oh I loved this album when I was a much younger man than I am now. 2004 in fact. I'm sure it saw me through some bleak winter or other. This was Laura Veirs breakout record and was the point where her lush and swoon-some style of icy songs really took hold. You can literally smell the Pacific North West on this collection. First time on vinyl and a perfect record to get you through the next few months.  

Julian Lynch
Rat's Spit

Rat’s Spit is the new album from Real Estate guitarist and Norman Records favourite, Julian Lynch. His music generally sounds like a slightly weirder, less pop, more fractured version of his parent band, but is certainly not lacking in quality. It’s his 7th album, but first since 2013’s Lines. It sees him mining inspiration from Tears For Fears, Kate Bush, George Clinton, Cocteau Twins, Yes and Steve Vai (Steve Vai?! really?! but he had custom-made guitars with carrying handles cut out of them!) Anyway, if the past is anything to go by, it should be a good ‘un. LP on Ya Reach / Underwater Peoples.

Felt
Crumbling The Antiseptic Beauty

Felt were of course a completely unique entity. Led by the eccentric Lawrence they released ten understated but incredibly influential records across the decade we knew as the 1980s. The first was Crumbling the Antiseptic Beauty a gorgeous, dark and mysterious album full of plangent guitars and Lawrence's near spoken word Lou Reed-isms.

David Bowie
Aladdin Sane

Parlophone reissued a range of David Bowie albums in the Five Years boxset in 2015: now these nice 180g vinyl versions are being released individually too. Aladdin Sane followed up Ziggy Stardust, and is hence the first Bowie record made whilst already a success. Includes ‘The Jean Genie’ and ‘Drive-In Saturday’. This LP release uses the 2013 remasters.

Two Door Cinema Club
False Alarm

Northern Irish indie rock band Two Door Cinema Club fourth album, False Alarm, finds them in a creative mood. They’re pretty confident in their abilities, four albums in, so have been making an experimental off-kilter blend future pop, funk, soul and disco - with pleasing results. LP and CD on Prolifica Inc.
