Swervedriver
Ejector Seat Reservation

Though Oxford's second best shoegaze band Swervedriver reached big audiences with their first couple of records, their third fell somewhat under the radar in 1995. Never mind though as now it has been re-issued for you to rediscover. It's a mixture of tough shoegaze, dreamy rock music and a hint of blues that serves to prove tha...view item »


The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Methodrone

Clinton awoke from his slumbers on overhearing the news that theres another Brian Jonestown Massacre album out. This time its called 'Methadrone' which is a very typical Brian Jonestown Massacre title. A further internet investigation tells me its not a new album at all but a re-issue of a 2004 album. It comes on lovely blue double vinyl...view item »


Manic Street Preachers
The Holy Bible

Plenty of super-deluxe box set reissues around these days, but The Manic Street Preachers’ The Holy Bible stands out as an album singular enough to warrant this treatment. Here it is presented on heavyweight vinyl, and is accompanied by a glossy book and 4 CDs: 2 different mixes, a disc of...view item »


Siouxsie and The Banshees
Kaleidoscope

Ah this is the classic one isn't it? The first with ‘Budgie’ on drums and  John McGeoch on guitar who would both play a part in transforming the Banshees sound. It contains two of their excellent breakthrough hits Happy House and Christine and is a more rounded and vibrant Banshees sound than ever. Now re-issued cut from th...view item »


Muse
Showbiz

Some people may forget that Muse released anything before Origins of Symmetry, sometimes I do. Then I go back to it and am surprised I forget about Showbiz. It's by no means forgettable, every song is propelled with youthful spirit and played expertly by the dynamic trio. The songs here are written to dazzle, whether it be the melodramatic Jeff Buc...view item »


Teenage Fanclub
Songs From Northern Britain

Songs From Northern Britain was the 6th album by Teenage Fanclub, originally released in 1997. It was their most polished album but still found the band in fine melodic form. Ain’t That Enough and Your Love Is A Place Where I Come From are worth the admission price alone. Nick Hornby is a fan of the album and included the ...view item »


Siouxsie and The Banshees
The Rapture

The Rapture was the 11th and final studio album from Siouxsie and the Banshees and was part produced by John Cale. The album continued the band's legacy of producing innovative and fresh work at a time when many of their contemporaries had either split up or were treading water. Though not sporting any ...view item »


The Strokes
Is This It

The Strokes’ dynamic 2001 debut Is This It, with hard-to-resist faves like Last Nite and Someday which helped the growly Julian Casablancas and co. wedge themselves firmly into the indie rock canon. The New Yorkers’ kickstarter for the 2000s indie scene, available on regular LP from Rough Trade or a limited ...view item »


Radiohead
Kid A

Kid A is still Radiohead's most challenging album and the furthest they've headed into electronic textures but it's all the better for it. The band channelled the sounds they were hearing on records by the likes of Autechre and applied them to their own sound. Such a different beast from OK Computer b...view item »


Papa M
A Broke Moon Rises

The main morsel of information to glean from the press release is that David Pajo's son is at least 29 years old.  Dad meanwhile after having thrown it all out there with the cathartic 'Highway Songs' returns to a more acoustic based sound using layers of guitars to build up his affecting compositions. This could be very lovely indeed. ...view item »


Habibi
Habibi

Cor, this is a real sweet platter. Habibi (apparently an Arabic term for “affection”) are four Brooklyn, NY-based lovelies making pure, simple stripped-back and delightfully harmonic gems in the vein of Frankie Rose, Grass Widow and like fellow NY-ers ...view item »


Fontaines D.C.
Too Real

Fontaines D.C. hail from Dublin and not from the U.S. capital, despite what their name may lead you to believe. The mix of indie and punk that recalls The Fall, Modern Lovers, Iggy Pop and The Strokes is starting to win them fans and friends in all the right places. Too Real is their new single. 7...view item »


Mattiel
Customer Copy

Customer Copy is the second album by Mattiel. She was raised on a diet of ‘60s folk and pop including Donovan and The Monkees. She mixes these influences with her own musical discoveries such as The White Stripes to create an album heavy on retro sounds. Imagine Nancy Sinatra fronting The Wh...view item »


Low
Christmas

Now as much of a christmas standard as "Rocking Around The Christmas Tree" by Mel and Kim. Low are the perfect band to soundtrack Christmas, coming as they do from the snow-bound city of Duluth which glistens like Christmas half the year round. This short album combines lovely originals "Just Like Christmas" and "...view item »


Low
The Great Destroyer

The Duluth rock behemoth Low have a new album out on Rough Trade. This time its produced by David Fridmann (Mercury Rev etc). I think you always have to give Low albums a  long while to grow on you. On first impression this seems as poppy a thing as they have ever done. It still sounds like Low tho...view item »


Arctic Monkeys
Whatever People Say I Am

Debut album from Los Angeles' neé Sheffield's finest from back when they were four scrappy kids with big fringes, before the smart shirts and slicked back hair. Even now the young Alex Turner's lyrics are genuinely impressive in how vivid a vision of the People's Republic of South Yorkshire they can create. ...view item »


Pavement
Slanted & Enchanted

This was the Pavement I liked. A sloppy sprawling lo-fi charm fest taking heavy influence from the Velvet Underground and the Fall but stumbling blinking in the sun with classic melodies glinting through the fuzzy production and madcap drumming. On top of that add Malkmus wordplay and you get an...view item »


Bloc Party
Silent Alarm

Oh I know. You're waiting on the Bloc Party album aren't you? Yes you bunch of dribbling fanatics, It's here. With a free 4 track live DVD. It's great as well. Edgy, dynamic headrush anthems. Taking indie into a new sky scraping stratosphere. Tight as hell playing from this uber talented 4 piece. Awesome drumming etc etc. It's everywhere...view item »


The Nightingales
Pigs On Purpose

I was thinking this was a new album but, as usual,  I was hopelessly wrong. Our resident Nightingales expert Brian informs me this dates from 1982 and is a re-issue so just a few quick words. Very much in your strummy scratchy Josef K style with gnarled, angry vocals rating about this and that. There is...view item »


The Cure
Pornography

One of the best gothic albums. It does not reduce the album's quality to search for comparisons. The icy keyboard, the whining voice, the harsh guitar and the muffled drums make it sound like a strange mix of Virgin Prunes and Joy Division. The dark keyboard of the title tra...view item »


The Smiths
The Queen is Dead

'The Queen Is Dead' is thought by many to be the Smiths greatest achievement. Not for me, nothing with 'Vicar In A Tutu' on it should ever be considered a classic. However it does contain many of their greatest moments, the title track, 'There is a Light....' and 'Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others' to name but three. The Smiths at their...view item »


The Smiths
Meat is Murder

Never widely considered to be their best album but this is a superb effort. It contains one of their most unusual and memorable songs in 'The Headmasters Ritual', add in to that the twin rainy day melancholy ballads 'Well I Wonder' and 'That Joke Isn't Funny Anymore', the surprising funk workouts of 'Barbarism Begins At Home' and the disturbing ...view item »


The Go Betweens
Right Here

An Australian writer once described the Go Betweens as not only a great band but the sort of band with characters and personalities you could gossip about as if they were the cast of Neighbours. Their history is Fleetwood Mac-ish in it's relationship complexity. But it's also sad, inspiring and sometimes downrig...view item »


Deerhunter
Microcastle / Weird Era Cont.

Back on vinyl, this time with 'Weird Era Cont.' - a bonus album previously unavailable on the format outside of the US. This is the first time that ‘Microcastle’ and ‘Weird Era Cont.’ have been made available together on vinyl outside of the States. Arriving on double vinyl in a gatefold sleeve, the artw...view item »


Snail Mail
Habit

Following the success, both critically and commercially, of their fabulous debut album, Hush, Snail Mail have decided it’s time to guide you in the direction of one of their early EPs with the reissue of 2016’s Habit. Here, they’re a three piece, led as always by Lyndsey Jordan. ...view item »


The Decemberists
Travelling On

The Decemberists like to release B-side EPs. Travelling On, released on Rough Trade, is a 5-track collection of tunes from their previous full-length album, I'll Be Your Girl. It contains 4 tracks from the Exploded Edition and a full band version of Travelling On.&n...view item »


Husbands
Karlstad EP

As 2018 draws to a close, Box Bedroom Rebels are a label that wants to help you forget all the nonsense that has gone on in the world with a joyful EP of unabashed indie-pop. Oklahoma band Husbands are the people who have made the right record at the right time to conjure up that carefree feeling with Karlstad EP. 7-track 7&rdqu...view item »


Death From Above 1979
Heads Up Demos

Heads Up Demos, by Canadian elephant-nosed bass and drum duo Death From Above 1979, contains demo versions (believe it or not) of songs from their very first EP which was called Heads Up (believe it or not). It is released on 7” through Third Man Records. The cover comes in three different c...view item »

Idaho
Hearts of Palm

We all remember Idaho from the time they were kind of third in line after American Music Club and Red House Painters in your slowcore hit parade. This is a re-issue of their fifth album released circa 2000. Jeff Martin and pals have always been a bit of an underrated band in the annals of atmosp...view item »


Nirvana
In Utero

Nirvana’s In Utero, the album that famously followed Nevermind with a more caustic, cutting sound. Pretty emotionally and sonically heavy, particularly for a record that reached number one in the US. Includes "Heart-Shaped Box", "Rape Me", and the title track, which is essentially designed to be...view item »


Manchester Orchestra
The Black Mile Demos

Manchester Orchestra are from Atlanta, Georgia, but take their name from the beautiful northern city of rain and trams. The Black Mile Demos compiles recordings of songs that ultimately made up their fifth album, A Black Mile To The Surface. This record shows the songs in their most skeletal form,...view item »


Slint
Spiderland (Remastered)

2014 remaster of Slint's beautiful second and final album. It comes with various outtakes and demos, as well as Breadcrumb Trail, the documentary about the album’s creation directed by Lance Bangs. The band's use of dynamics gave them an uncanny ability to bottle emotions; the words "he de...view item »


Lee Ranaldo
Electric Trim Live At Rough Trade East

Ex-Sonic Youth man Lee Ranaldo has announced a new live album! Electric Trim Live At Rough Trade East was recorded solo at the intimate setting of the popular East London record shop, on the first date of the UK leg of his Electric Trim tour. Performed excitingly 'just-as-he-wanted-them-to-be', the songs in this set are...view item »


Elastica
Elastica

In 1994 you would have thought that Elastica would have gone on to become something quite special but instead they dribbled to a halt. Still they released one classic album that although was dangerously derivative at times had the type of killer tunes that filled those indie discos. Vinyl reissue includes a bonus fanzine and fle...view item »


Tindersticks
Curtains (Expanded Edition)

Curtains was the third album by cinematic British group Tindersticks. As part of a re-issue campaign of all their albums this one has been given the 2LP treatment with the 15 original album cuts joined by 9 further bonus tracks including “A Marriage Made In Heaven” (a duet with Isabella Rossellini).&nbs...view item »


Art Brut
Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out!

Berlin-based indie rockers Art Brut are back together for their first album in 7 years. Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out! comes after lead vocalist Eddie Argos has lived a bit. In the intervening years he has been hospitalised, had a son, a relationship break-up, written a comic, a memoir and a musical. All this has informe...view item »


American Football
American Football (LP3)

20 years ago American Football, formed by Mike Kinsella of Cap’n Jazz, made their eponymously titled post rock-meets-emo debut and split up. The album is highly regarded in many quarters, including here at Norman Records. A follow-up surprised us in 2016, with Mike’s b...view item »


Eels
Daisies Of The Galaxy

Eels! That’s how the brief Superbowl advert that bandleader E put together goes, and it is also how we responded when we saw the crate-load of reissued Eels albums that Universal have sent through to us. Daisies Of The Galaxy, the third of the band’s records, is filled with ...view item »


Teenage Fanclub
Man-Made

I need brightening up....hey look whose coming along the road  - Teenage Fanclub with their brand new sparkling pop record. They always seem like such unassuming chaps and aren't afraid to wear a comfortable jumper with pride.  As usual there's a host of 60's derived melodies with soft vocal harmonies but this time the producti...view item »


Teenage Fanclub
Shadows

The Fannies. These chaps are well reliable. A bit like Burt Reynolds (or Burnt Remnants as my Gramps used to say) you know what youre getting with them. No nonsense, professional and hugely enjoyable....but with a moustache. Teenage Fanclub probably don't have 'taches but they know how to write a fucking great tune (or ten). This album has some ...view item »


Siouxsie and The Banshees
Peepshow

Here's where Siouxsie and the Banshees proved that they were more than just goth rock gloomsters. Lead single 'Peek-a-Boo' was an innovative slice of future pop laden with samples and electronic effects. The album contained further hits in 'The Killing Jar' and 'The Last Beat of My Heart' and showcased a vibrant and unpredictabl...view item »


Mac DeMarco
Salad Days

Yes its the Return of the Mac. This is Mac De Marco’s third full length record and its safe to say that if you like the first two then you are going to find plenty to swoon over here.  He’s long discarded the pitched down croon he used on the first side of the corking ‘Rock and Roll Nightclub’ debut and has adopted a...view item »


Errors
Have Some Faith In Magic

Looks like Reverb Worship and Rock Action have something in common - they both have little to no interest in press releases, hence I'm short on background information to explain the recent transformation in the work of Scottish post-rockers Errors. These lads have always been a good band ...view item »


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. ...view item »


Kleenex Girl Wonder
White Lacuna



Pixies
Come On Pilgrim... It's Surfer Rosa

Well there's no doubt that these are two of The Most Important Indie Rock Records Of All Time. Both are absolutely exceptional, in particular 'Surfer Rosa' which pretty much turned everything I knew on its head in my teenage years. 30 years after the event we get this luxury box set of both records plus a live show from the era. No new demos or ...view item »


Radiohead
Amnesiac

If I've had a particularly rough night out and suffer the almost-ritual of unbearable Sundays where coffee and cigarettes get abused in an effort to deal with the brutality, I find myself reaching out to Amnesiac. I have a friend who does the same and we've discussed that Amnesiac acts as a therapeutic gift for times when you need to clear your ...view item »


Arctic Monkeys
Suck It And See

The new single from Sheffield's second favourite sons (after Sean Bean) is another high octane rocking number that almost seals their reputation as the UK's Queens Of The Stone Age. They seem to be content with rocking out, which is no bad thing. It's just I liked them a heck of a lot more w...view item »


Radiohead
A Moon Shaped Pool

Hello. Thom. It's me. The Radioheadmaster. Your teachers and I are all becoming a little concerned with your workrate. We all agree you're spending a little too much time on BitTorrent and not enough time on your studies. As such we're decided it's best you repeat the fourth grade -- I trust a second attempt at "True Love Waits", "Identikit" and...view item »


The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Bravery, Repetition & Noise

One of the BJM's best! Featuring a handful of songs that have become firm fan favourites down the years ('Telegram', 'Nevertheless', 'Sailor') and another handful that deserve wider acclaim ('Just For Today', the haunting 'Leave Nothing For Sancho') this was first released in 2001 and has now been reissued on vinyl (for the first time) on A...view item »


The Fall
458489 A Sides

It's taken Beggars some time to start with the Fall re-issue programme but here it is and it starts with the perfect introduction to the Fall for the faint hearted. 458489 A Sides was how I got into the Fall myself as it contains all their singles from the Brix Smith era generally seen as their most user friendly period. Of...view item »

Juliana Hatfield
Weird

After an album full of Olivia Newton-John covers, Bostonian songstress Juliana Hatfield has reverted to good ol’ original songs. Weird is her new album and it finds her trying to explain how uncomfortable, disconnected and, well, weird she feels in this mixed up, muddled up, shook up world. Former...view item »


Levitation
Never Odd Or Even

Here is a nice neat clean-up release from Levitation, who existed for a relatively brief time in the early 90’s, but whose second album Meanwhile Gardens was never released until recently. There wasn’t, however, enough space to include everything, so the three lost tracks are now getting their own vinyl rele...view item »


Levitation
Meanwhile Gardens

Much to the band’s evident dismay (see the press release), Levitation’s second record Meanwhile Gardens was never released in 1993 when it was recorded. It has taken until now for the album to receive the full, proper release it was meant to: now, we can all hear the alt-guitar sound the band crafted back th...view item »

Eels
Beautiful Freak

Very prolific and very sad, Mark "E" Everett has released literally tonnes of records at this point, but it all began with 'Beautiful Freak', a record that predated his infatuation with indie pop, twee theatrics and maudlin slowcore; this record has shades of grunge, trip-hop and alt rock, featuring the classic single "Novocaine For the Soul", a...view item »


Ty Segall
Fried Shallots

Being a non Ty Segall fan I am currently saving a whopping £58 per year not buying his endless stream of records. Someone please tell Martin Lewis. However this new 6 track EP from the garage rock rackateer gives its profits to the American Civil Liberties Union -  a charity protecting the civil liberties of people li...view item »


Mary + Stew
You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth

Barely forgivable attempt at the Meatloaf 'classic' by members of Even As we Speak and Boyracer. They slow it down to indie ballad pace and add in some sweet harmonies. Comes on lesser spotted flexi disc with download card in case you actually want to play it without having the needle slide acro...view item »


Parquet Courts
Performing Human

Swaggering New York indie-punks Parquet Courts released Human Performance, their third or fifth album (depending on which ones you count), earlier this year. This is an EP of alt-versions and remixes of the title track, cannily titled Performing Human. The remixes come from Eaters and from ...view item »

Snow Patrol
Eyes Open

Eyes Open was the fourth album by Snow Patrol, coming three years after its predecessor, Final Straw, in 2006. It shifted a lot of copies and was the biggest selling album of the year. The major label boost was really paying off. To make the album extra shiny, U2, Robbie Williams and The Killers p...view item »


Snow Patrol
Fallen Empires

Some hits, some misses. Good songs, but gets a bit same-y after awhile. It's also a little over-produced for my taste. I think that's the culprit in their sound, actually. Trying to make these songs fit a previously successful form and feel. The result is that even though there are plenty of good hooks here, it breaks ZERO new ground. I guess fa...view item »


Snow Patrol
Final Straw

Snow Patrol’s 2003 album Final Straw was their third album, but their first real biggie. Having signed to a major label may have helped with production values and a marketing push, but they were solely responsible for writing some anthemic songs. Run, for example, went stratospheric and unfo...view item »


The Phantom Band
Checkmate Savage

The Phantom Band are a strange but fascinating proposition. Their album is called 'Checkmate Savage' and is the first new thing i've heard on Chemikal Underground for a fair while. It's a strange lolloping beast of a record, quite uncategorisable to be honest. So i'll just pluck a couple of things out of the ether for "analysis" 'Burial S...view item »


Low
Secret Name

Low are masters of restraint. Up until and including their fourth album “Secret Name” they had seemingly worked with the right producers. Their first two albums were produced by Kramer who had squeezed the best out of Galaxie 500, and you can hear their influence in Low’s early work. “The...view item »

Razorlight

Whilst Up All Night, the debut album by Razorlight, gave them some solid bricks to build on, their eponymous second sent them stratospheric.

Razorlight
Up All Night

Back in 2004, Razorlight were the hot new things on the block, cooler, edgier and more rock ‘n’ roll than contemporaries The Kooks, for example. Up All Night, their debut album, came flying out of the traps with its high energy indie-cum-punk that ostensibly took its influences from ...view item »

Sort-of goths The Cranes released their second EP, Self Non-self in 1989.

'Hatful of Hollow' was a wonderful compilation of the Smiths earliest moments with many tracks taken from John Peel sessions.

This is the Smiths album I would give a friend if they wanted to know what the Smiths sounded like. There are 24 amazing tracks on here full of the MOZ wit and the MARR guitar sound.

Three Imaginary Boys

While this album is a classic without a shadow of a doubt, I have problems with the LIlith reissue. First, 10.15 Saturday Night originally segues into Accuracy - not in this reissue.
