DMA's
For Now

Hot on the heels of being ordained as one of Liam Gallagher’s favourite Aussie groups - probably because they sound quite a lot like Oasis - DMA’s shoot for the stars on For Now. If singles ‘Dawning’ and ‘In The Air’ are anything to g...view item »

Jesus Jones
Passages

In scarcely believable news there's a new Jesus Jones album in town. Yes the band you remember from such hits as 'Right Here, Right Now’ are back with a brand new album for 2018.

Haunted Hearts

Dorias Baracca
Dorias Baracca

Tragically, Dorias Baracca’s promising career was cut short in 2011 when singer and songwriter Buster Svendsen passed away. The day of his death also happened to be the same day that their self-titled debut LP was completed. As such, the fact that Dorias Baracca has seen light of day at all is a triumph. The seven...view item »

Suuns
Felt

New Suuns music! Felt was self-recorded in Montreal over a good long period of time, allowing the band to really feel their way around their sounds. Felt is perhaps a little less tight and claustrophobic than some of the band’s past work, and with extra doses of experimental electronics. Mixed by ...view item »

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
Talk Tight

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever's recently released 'The French Press' did rather well for itself so now we have a re-issue of their debut which already showcases their marriage of the laid back pop charm of the Go Betweens with the verbal dexterity of Courtney Barnett. Classic Aussie pop availa...view item »

Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever
The French Press

Melbourne, Australia’s Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever release The French Press, a tight little EP of indie rock that is intelligent and sharply catchy, in the vein of bands like Parquet Courts.

The Ninth Wave
Never Crave Attention

Latest EP Never Crave Attention from Glaswegian four-piece outfit The Ninth Wave, who wear their love for 80s post-punk on their gothy sleeves and have developed a reputation for an energetic live show on the local scene.

Girl
Sea and Dirt

Girl is a Norwegian duo containing two musicians who’ve been busy with plenty of other projects over the years (thing Fay Wildhagen and Ich Bin N!ntendo for starters). Their lovely-sounding debut album Sea and Dirt was released digitally in the summer, but this first-time physical...view item »

Nap Eyes
Whine of the Mystic

‘Whine of the Mystic’ is the first full-length album from Nap Eyes, recorded live, straight to tape with no effects or overdubs. This recording style complements the ethos of the playing which is confidently economical in a way that reminds me of the instantly addictive bass lines of Kim Deal. For fans of The Clean, The Verlaines or ...view item »

Henry Blacker
The Making Of Junior Bonner

More Somerset Stoner Sludge from Henry Blacker, the regional offshoot of Hey Colossus. The Making Of Junior Bonner is their third full album to date, and it positively seethes with noisy distortion and ear-bludgeoning riffs. Nine fairly punchy tracks in forty minutes, making for a good-sized portion of ...view item »

Mike Donovan
How to Get Your Record Played in Shops

San Fran rocker and Sic Alps & Peacers lead singer Mike Donovan is in the mood for dishing out advice on his latest solo outing, How to Get Your Record Played in Shops. He’s often in a gentle, piano-led garage or rock & roll mode for this collection, with a lot of peace an...view item »

Elliott Smith
Division Day

Division Day by Elliott Smith was a non-album single, originally released in 1996 in between his self-titled second album and his masterpiece, Either/Or.

Gomez
Bring It On (20th Anniversary Edition)

It’s been twenty years since Gomez, the Southport indie five-piece with three lead singers, released this debut and nabbed the coveted Mercury Prize. So if you’re after the vinyl, here’s an anniversary remaster. If you’re after the CD, here’s an anniversary remaster plus three more discs comprising ...view item »

Beds In Parks / Cabbage
I’m a Warhol / Dinner Lady

A split single in good old fashioned style: 2 no-nonsense post-punk outfits jostling together on vinyl. Duo Beds In Parks contains ex-members of History Of Apple Pie and Hatcham Social, and Cabbage are young fellas from Manchester. All know their way around a noise-pop tune. ...view item »

West Thebarton

Faerground Accidents
Perfume

If it were 1995 then Faerground Accidents would be touted as the next Pulp or Suede but in 2018 they seem strangely out of place. "Perfume", taken from their recent (and not without moments of excellence) album 'Co-Morbid', a Bowie-esque slab of glam melodrama that would ha...view item »

Cloud Castle Lake
Malingerer

As fashionable as it is these days to dislike Radiohead, they’re still worn on the sleeves of a few courageous outfits. Dublin-based Cloud Castle Lake is one of them. In their debut LP Malingerer can be heard post-Kid A RH textures, as well as the sprawled stylings of Spirit of Eden-...view item »

Bright Eyes
I'm Wide Awake It's Morning

One of the main drawbacks of this job is that every couple of years or so I have to write about a record by Bright Eyes, for the only reason that out of the 3 Norman Records staff, I will be the one who is the least rude. Today I have to write about two new Bright Eyes albums. It must be my lucky...view item »

Madonnatron / NoFriendz
Headless Children / Bloody Love

Split 7" on Trash Mouth which features Madonnatron and No Friends. Madonnatron are label mates with the likes of Fat White Family and Meatraffle and so are doing that London scene thing. No Friends we can't find much about other than they have no friends. Maybe getting on t...view item »

Mattiel
Mattiel

The hard grafters at Burger Records have dug up another rough diamond here. Mattiel’s sound is a heady brew of influences from the grittier end of American garage rock. The White Stripes, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, it’s ...view item »

Revolutionary Spirit - The Sound Of Liverpool 1976-1988

An extensive 5-disc overview of Scouserock, if you will, from the punk and post-punk era through to the more polished pleasures of the late 80s. It kicks off with the art rock theatrics of Deaf School, and the more heard about than heard (retrospective) supergroup Big In Japan. ...view item »

The Decemberists
I'll Be Your Girl

Uh oh. The Decemberists have sought fit to drag in 'super' producer John Congleton and embrace influences such as Roxy Music and New Order on their eighth album. Safe to say that my dad's not going to like this one little bit. Lead single "Severed" though expertly showcases Congleton's abil...view item »

The Moondoggies
A Love Sleeps Deep

It's been five long years since Washington natives The Moondoggies released a record, and we're gagging at their return. 'A Love Sleeps Deep' is classic rock of the highest order, with a gentle dusting of woodsy folk for good measure. Expect heart-on-sleeve songwriting and riff-heavy future classics....view item »

The Breeders
All Nerve

Taking a break from their knitting for awhile, the Patti and Selma Bouvier of indie rock re-unite with the 'classic' era line up of the Breeders for their much anticipated first new album in a decade. Expect taut and lop-sided avant rock full of unusual melodies and that golden throated voice. How much better will it be than the...view item »

Bonny Doon
Longwave

Bonny Doon already have one pretty damn pleasant self titled album under their belts but have since decamped to the evocatively named Mystic Lake in Michigan to record this swift follow up. Inspired by their surroundings the band have created a twilit world of understated strum pop in the vein of those breezy relaxed songs on the Velvet ...view item »

Lucy Dacus
Historian

Indie-rock sensation Lucy Dacus returns with her second album, Historian. She feels as though, she left every bit of herself on the tape, saying everything she wanted to say. A fuller sound than debut record, No Burden, has been brought about with mixing input from producer John Congleton...view item »

Car Seat Headrest
Twin Fantasy

Car Seat Headrest’s Will Toledo originally recorded Twin Fantasy as a nineteen year old, but it remained unfinished. Not because he didn’t want to finish it, but because didn’t know how to. Now, with his band in tow, the use of a proper studio, and most importantly, time, he’s managed to complete the albu...view item »

Joanna Gruesome
Pretty Fucking Sick (Of It All)

The first release from Welsh group Joanna Gruesome since the departure of their vocalist, Pretty Fucking Sick (Of it All) brings in a new vocalist and keys.

Fu Manchu
Kept Between Trees

Reissue of the first ever tracks from legendary stoner rockers Fu Manchu! Kept Between Trees was first released as a three track 7” in 1990, and this reissue from At The Dojo bolsters that with three extra inches and a previously unreleased track. Listen out for the wonderful vocals that sound devoid of all enthus...view item »

Field Report
Summertime Songs

With lovely, gauzy album art that'd be perfect for a crossover of Stranger Things and Chromatics, you'd be forgiven for entirely misunderstanding the Field Report mission statement. An indie rock band who namecheck Bon Iver about six hundred times in their press release, their gor...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 »

Hinds
I Don't Run

Sophomore effort from formidable Spanish four-piece Hinds, following up 2016’s successful Leave Me Alone. Their playful garage-pop benefits this time from the input of The Strokes’ producer Gordon Raphael. I Don't Run is inspired ...view item »

A Place To Bury Strangers
Pinned

Shoegaze / noise-rocker brutalists A Place To Bury Strangers return with their fifth full-length, sharply titled Pinned. As a response of sorts to the last few years of current affairs, it is a blasted-sounded thing, although in truth A Place To Bury Strangers have never been a gentle proposition. Relea...view item »

Josh T. Pearson
The Straight Hits!

I’m sure I’ll be forgiven, upon seeing the cover and title of Josh T. Pearson’s new album The Straight Hits, for thinking that it was a perfectly observed satire on the American country music scene. It turns out that the once bearded, long-haired gent actually looks like that now. Don’t worry though, the ...view item »

Diet Cig
Over Easy

People really enjoy having overblown opinions about the very chill band Diet Cig but they will essentially work for you if you like having feelings over decent chord progressions and enjoy the bridge built between indie rock and pop punk. Over Easy is five songs, an EP if you will, and it was initial...view item »

L.A. Salami
The City Of Bootmakers

L.A. Salami is currently based in London, however, he recorded his second LP, The City Of Bookmakers, in Berlin. He lets rip on the album with a diatribe against those in control who seek to keep the meek and under-privileged down. Salami is a prolific artist, The City of Bookmakers follows on fro...view item »

Night Beats
Fuzz Club Session

Now surging upon an upward momentum, Seattle-incepted garage-rock band Night Beats have become a key player in their scene. Fuzz Club Session is the first installment of a new series, and there's not many better bands to kick off this collection than this innovative trio - who take the best o...view item »

Franz Ferdinand
Franz Ferdinand

Honestly, who knew we'd look back on this one as fondly as we do? Franz Ferdinand's first record seemed hell-bent on compacting as many hooks as was feasibly possible in a post-punk record, with "Take Me Out" a prime example of overdoing it for the best results. Not much else needs be said about this record of smirking gloo...view item »

Unknown Mortal Orchestra
Sex & Food

This could be the time when Unknown Mortal Orchestra become the Well Known Mortal Orchestra. Previous records have become increasingly catchy, radio friendly and certainly more indebted to the man we used to call Prince without totally ruining their underground coolness. 'Sex & Food' has the artwork and titl...view item »

The White Stripes
Seven Nation Army /Good To Me

You know that song with the riff? I've heard it's a pretty good riff. "Seven Nation Army" is perhaps the most iconic White Stripes song there is, responsible for Jack White thinking many great things of himself, and this 7" pronounces that greatness, plus a b-side called "Good To Me", a cover by way of Brendan Benson. ...view item »

Smashing Pumpkins
Siamese Dream

This record doesn't need a big review. As long as you can stand Billy Corgan's voice, then every fan of loud guitar music should own it. It's the Smashing Pumpkins best and one of the finest the whole Grunge/Alternative scene produced. But if you don't like that voice then you probably won't make it throug...view item »

Manic Street Preachers
Resistance Is Futile

Everybody’s favourite Welsh radical-chic indie heroes are back with their thirteenth full-length album, grandly titled Resistance Is Futile. This one sits at the grander end of the Manic Street Preachers...view item »

Kings Of Leon
Come Around Sundown

I've listened to it a couple of times, and Come Around Sundown is (unfortunately for some of us) what I expected from the Only By the Night follow-up. Don't get me wrong. It's a solid effort. It's polished both in terms of vocals and instrumentals. It's easy to listen to. And it's got an expansive, big sound that will play well in any arena. It ...view item »

Josh Rouse
Love In The Modern Age

Seemingly like everyone else who used to make music with guitars these days, Josh Rouse has put down his axe and bought some synths to inspire his 12th album, Love In The Modern Age. He’s thrown ‘80s sophisti-pop, indie rock, latter-period Leonard Cohen and New York new wave into the pot to cook this up. LP and CD on...view item »

Wye Oak
The Louder I Call, The Faster It Runs

Wye Oak are a duo made up of Jenn Wasner and Andy Stack. They formed in Baltimore but after two albums moved apart to North Carolina and Texas, respectively.

Guided By Voices
Space Gun

Since we started our #namethenewguidedbyvoicesalbum hashtag Guided By Voices album titles have become really boring. Here's the latest one  - 'Space Gun'. 'Reversed Hen Tsunami Plot' will just have to wait I suppose. This is the third from the new classic GBV line up which includes such future legends as Mark Shue and ...view item »

Weezer
Weezer (Red Album)

Weezer reissues! Everyone’s favourite US power-indie-pop hitmakers get pressed up to wax by Universal, getting their post-2000’s work fully available again. The Red Album is a good fun silly Weezer album, featuring both the super-catchy ‘Pork And Beans’ and the absurd / sublime &...view item »

The Cure
Faith

Robert Smith has expressed his appreciation for the music of Joy Division and I would say that this album, Faith, is The Cure's Closer - dark, monotone, toy drumming with layers of anguish and compelling lyrics. "The Funeral Party" is like Joy Division's "Eternal" - dealing with loss in an effective, but origin...view item »

R.E.M.
Life's Rich Pageant

New R.E.M. reissues are afoot, getting some of that early I.R.S. Records material back into circulation. Life’s Rich Pageant was the band’s fourth album, first released in 1986, when Stipe and co. were still young, hungry and indie. Includes their cover of The Clique’s...view item »

Hop Along
Bark Your Head Off, Dog

Blessed are the emo at heart as Hop Along, royalty of woe and heart-wrench, returns with another record of skewed songwriting. Painted Shut progressed her sound further from its entrenched sparsity and its follow-up doubles down on the dynamism: Bark Your Head off, Dog, is a record that coll...view item »

Eels
The Deconstruction

Gravel voiced troubadour E and his Eels return for a new album that is described as long awaited but it's only been four years which doesn't really seem that long ago. That said the world is very different these days and I'm sure E has a lot to growl out on the matter as he talks of finding beauty in a world full of hate. Wise w...view item »

The Courteeners
St. Jude Re:Wired

The Courteeners frontman, Liam Fray, went on a little jaunt around the country playing acoustic shows. Inspired by this, and to mark the 10th anniversary of the release of their debut album, The Courteeners have decided to re-record St. Jude in an unplugged stylie...view item »

SWANS
The Great Annihilator

When The Great Annihilator arrived, Swans took the best qualities of their recent chamber-folk tendencies from the last two tepid albums and combined them with crushing post rock catharsis (polar opposites, it would seem), to produce a record firmly centred around the spirit and regeneration. The production is jarring...view item »

Hoops
Tapes #1-3

Hoops, or in everyday life Drew Auscherman, has released three EPs of lo-fi guitar + electronics pop on cassette over the last few years.

Unqualified Nurse Band
Death Surf A52

The Too Pure Singles Club returns with a bang, brandishing these two slices of darkened surf-rock action by Unqualified Nurse Band.

Hey Colossus
RRR

Here's a re-release of a fascinating album Hey Colossus made in one big long studio session with Jon (Notorious Hi-Fi Killers) and Leon (Shit+Shine) in tow.

Alien Ballroom
Makrophreakzville!

The debut release from the Liverpool based Sentinel record label. Alien Ballroom find that sweet spot between jangle and punk, between melody and energy. The Makrophreakzville! EP is a move in the direction of dancey for the band, and one that suits them greatly. It's a ...view item »

The Altered Hours
On My Tongue

Cork-based quintet The Altered Hours follow up 2016’s debut album In Heat, Not Sorry with this four track EP, a joint release of Penske Recording and Art For Blind Records.

Major Murphy
No. 1

The zine includes an interview between Lazy Day's songwriter, Tilly Scantlebury, and music writer Sammy Maine....view item »

The Drink
Company

The Drink's pastoral and crunchy guitar compositions recall a time when indie rock was about escapism, with tunes that begin caught up in a fantasy before breaking into quietly inspiring climaxes. It's a little twee pop, but with textural twists that recall the most warped twee minds: it harkens bck to Islands returning to the sea, tho...view item »

Naked Giants
Sluff

Naked Giants hail from Seattle, and Sluff is their debut album. Their sound flits between short bursts of propulsive indie rock, with catchy hooks and immediate guitar riffs which would see them destined for the big time, to longer, multifaceted, albeit indie rock, pieces which make them an interesting underground proposition. 1...view item »

The Fall
I Am Kurious Oranj

Like most Fall albums, this one contains filler, but the strong material is lethal. From the steamroller opening track "New Big Prinz" to the surprisingly pretty instrumental "Overture From 'I am Curious, Orange'" amusingly pockmarked by Brix' ejaculations, to the disturbing "Jerusalem" to the vintage Fall "Wrong Place, Right Time" to the Fall's...view item »

Fugazi
Red Medicine

Probably the best summation of Fugazi is said by singer Ian Mackaye "We play loud electric guitar music, and we'd hope that that doesn't mean you have to act like an asshole". It's a statement that makes sense when you put on one of their records and what better record showcases this than their 4th LP Red Medicine. K...view item »

Slow Riot
Voyeur / Burn In The City

The latest single from Irish band Slow Riot sees them bringing forth two more tracks of moody-but-groovy post-punk. Preoccupations, Eagulls and Savages have all been mentioned in the same breath as the Limerick four-piece, and it’s easy to see why. ‘Voyeur’ is ...view item »

Vic Chesnutt
Drunk

The third of his damning and devastating records, Drunk sees Vic Chesnutt making sparse, economical songs with little contributing to his often meandering but extremely punchy lyrics.

Freedom’s Goblin, the new album from Ty Segall, is a biggie. 19 tracks that eek out every emotion from the listener on the way. This time out, Segall’s fuzz wraps itself around elements of r’n’b, synths, horns and harmonies, but is still very much Ty Segall...view item »

Disco Inferno
The 5 Eps

I'm not one for looking back usually. Neither were Disco Inferno.

More picture disc goodness from the ATP/R crew and it's the new single from my all time favourite band Deerhoof. 'Super Duper Rescue Heads!' is the first single from 'Vs.
