Julia Shapiro
Perfect Version

Having recorded and toured exhaustively with Chastity Belt for over half a decade, frontwoman Julia Shapiro recorded her first solo record during a period of upheaval in her personal life, suffering from depression as well as the collapse of her relationship. Perfect Version is an album about re-discovering control and personal satisfaction. 

Crushed Beaks
The Other Room

Sold out - sorry!

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.

The Black Keys
Let's Rock

Surely The Black Keys’ new LP Let’s Rock is named in lieu of the scene in School Of Rock where Jack Black gets Lawrence to do the special handshake that includes doing the can-can with your fingers and saying ‘let’s rock let’s rock today’. It must be, because there’s no way that The Black Keys have already exhausted all possible album titles and ended up plumping for Let’s Rock as anything other than a homage to one of the best films of the 21st Century. I mean, they’re only nine albums deep! You'd have to have really run out of ideas to do a thing like that...

Taffy
Deep Dark Creep Love

Taffy are an indie pop band from from Tokyo, Japan. They take their influences from British indie music, melding the C86 sound with shoegaze and Britpop. Deep Dark Creep Love is the band’s fifth album. This time out they’ve upped the sing-a-long-ability of their choruses and added an extra dimension with lush backing vocals.

Jamie Lenman
Shuffle

Shuffle is the third album by multi-instrumentalist, illustrator and former member of Rueben, Jamie Lenman. It is an album of covers, and judging by his very metal version of the Popeye theme, he hasn’t just added his own twist to the songs, but smashed them to smithereens and rebuilt them in his own vision. Also includes a song by The Beatles and the Taxi Driver theme.

Blaenavon
Let's Pray / I Will Be The World

Primal Scream

Sold out - sorry!

Pat Dam Smyth
The Last King

Pat Dam Smyth makes music influenced by various life-affecting events. He grew up in Belfast during the troubles and experienced psychosis whist in Berlin. He also takes influence from the artwork of Nirvana’s In Utero, although seemingly not the music. There are, however, musical nods to Pink Floyd, Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen.

Courtney Barnett
Nameless, Faceless

Excitement alert! We've scored some copies of the brand new 7" by Courtney Barnett. This is the first taster of new material from her upcoming as yet unannounced LP. This lass is getting very popular indeed and her recent collaboration with Kurt Vile was something of a winner here at the towers. Get in quick as these could be collectors items in years to come.  

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 fresh and stripped-back of arrangements, pared down to the simplicity and sturdiness of the structures and the songs themselves. LP on Mute, with a download included for 2 bonus tracks.

Outer Spaces
Gazing Globe

Born out of a need to move on with her life following the disintegration of a long-term relationship, Cara Beth Satalino’s new Outer Spaces album Gazing Globe puts up a defiant front of bold, melodic indie-pop tunes reminiscent of early R.E.M. It's the old trick of music as therapy, the positive trappings soundtracking her recovery process.

Wintersleep
In The Land Of

In The Land Of is the eighth album by highly-rated Canadian indie band, Wintersleep. It was produced by Tony Doogan who has worked with Belle and Sebastian and Mogwai. This, sound-wise, probably lands somewhere between the sound of the two bands as they embrace the quiet/loud dynamic. On Dine Alone.

Interpol
El Pintor - Remixes

Sold out - sorry!

The Underground Youth
Mademoiselle

Sold out - sorry!

Sophia
As We Make Our Way (Unknown Harbours)

Sophia are back after a seven year hiatus and their droning shoegaze is as razor sharp as ever. As We Make Our Way (Unknown Harbours) is an epic collection of indie-rock with plenty of post-rock guitars and some neoclassical touches added for good measure. Released by The Flower Shop Recordings on vinyl LP and CD.

The Tallest Man On Earth
I Love You. It's A Fever Dream.

Despite previously complaining about how uninspiring a tour can be for writing songs, The Tallest Man On Earth has lyrically taken on the tumbleweed lifestyle of continuous touring in his latest release, I Love You. It’s A Fever Dream. Expect more very obviously Bob Dylan-esque vocals and harmonica from the Swedish singer-songwriter on this, his fifth album.

Idaho
Hearts of Palm

Sold out - sorry!

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!

Body Type
EP1 & EP2

Scruffy lo-fi indie and jangly C86 melodies meet on these two EP releases from Sydney-based quartet Body Type, who have supported the likes of Courtney Barnett and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever. EP1 was released late last year, while the second instalment EP2 is soon to follow. For those who want the full picture, we've EP1 & EP2. 

Dan Lyons
Special People

Former Fat White Family member and co-founder Dan Lyons continues his solo career with his first EP Special People, a five-track collection containing last year’s single ‘Gargoyle’ and the blistering title track that righteously skewers the shallowness of celebrity culture in 2019.

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.

Fruit Bats
Gold Past Life

Gold Past Life by Fruit Bats is the final part of a cathartic trilogy which included singer/songwriter Eric D. Johnson’s 2014 solo album and 2016’s Absolute Loser. The thematic arc that joins the albums involves personal loss and political dissatisfaction, culminating in Johnson working on projects out of his comfort zone whilst recording this album. Neal Casal, Meg Duffy and Greta Morgan are among the guest performers.

Band Of Holy Joy
Neon Primitives

Band of Holy Joy’s latest studio album Neon Primitives attempts to capture the state of political and social unease gripping the country three years after the Brexit referendum - coincidentally, the last time that the band released a record. Rage and melody clash consistently on their latest record, which includes a weird Vincent Gallo cover... 

Titus Andronicus
An Obelisk

An Obelisk is the the sixth album by Shakespeare-monikered New Jersey-ites, Titus Andronicus. This time they chose the legendary Bob Mould to produce their album. It was recorded in Steve Albini’s Chicago studio. All this has led to the band making a more concise, rockier record which clocks in at an efficient 38 minutes.

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.

Primal Scream
Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles Volume 2

Maximum Rock ‘n’ Roll: The Singles Vol. 2 is the second part, believe it or not, of a career spanning singles compilation by Primal Scream. This installment covers the period from 2000 to 2016 and features tracks such as Country Girl and Accelerator, along with collaborations with Kate Moss and Sky Ferreira. Double 180g LP on Columbia.

Liars
Titles With The Word Fountain

Last remaining Liar Angus Andrew, who continues to compensate for solitude by cloning himself in every promo photo and video, returns with new album of definitely-not-TFCF-outtakes Titles from the Word Fountain. Packing seventeen not-leftover songs into the programme, from ‘Face in Ski Mask Bodies to the Wind’ and ‘Fantail Creeps’ to ‘Gawking at the Accident’, we at Norman can confirm 100% that a word fountain was involved.

Spring King
A Better Life

The North can party too you know. Manchester's Spring King show us how it's done with their second album of primal, joyous and thundering party anthems. The lads have got the party started for the likes of Kaiser Chiefs and Kasabian on recent tours and so know how to make lots of people stay awake at the same time.    

Young Marble Giants
Colossal Youth

Sold out - sorry!

Deerhunter
Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?

Well here is something to look forward to. As we know by now each Deerhunter album is uniquely different and this one they say is a science fiction album for 2018. They've spent their time since 2015s Fading Frontier redefining their recording process going so far as to not use microphones for their instruments and plug them straight into the desk. Should be interesting.

Peter Perrett
Humanworld

Permanently sunglassed former the Only Ones frontman Peter Perrett had not been seen for many years before he returned with 2017s  How The West Was Won and now he's back again with Humanworld which as with his previous record was recorded with the help of his two sons Jamie and Peter Jr. Truly the renaissance man of post punk.

Pinky Pinky
Turkey Dinner

LA indie rock three-piece Pinky Pinky have a name that sounds cute but it’s origins are actually rather more sinister: it’s the name of mythical South African monster used to scare young girls into not wearing pink. Turkey Dinner is their debut album. Two previous EPs and relentless touring have earned them fans in high places: Dave Grohl, Brian Bell (Weezer) and Albert Hammond Jr.

Dressy Bessy
Fast Faster Disaster

Sold out - sorry!

The Catenary Wires
Til The Morning

You may not know of the Cetenary Wires but when I say that this is the duo of Rob Pursey and Amelia Fletcher then some bells may clang. The latter is the star of the likes of Heavenly and Tallulah Gosh of course and together they make indie duets with more of a folk nod than their riot grrl/indie pop beginnings. From Kent too. 

Papernut Cambridge
Nutlets II (1978-2001)

Papernut Cambridge release their second album of covers to date, and its a proper job: Nutlets II contains twenty tracks, each sourced from crucial young-person memories of bandleader Ian Button. These songs have great personal weight, and you can hear that come through in Button’s re-imagining of them. Includes tunes by Throbbing Gristle, Suede and Daft Punk!

The Lemonheads
Take It Easy

Possibly the low point on the Lemonheads recent Varshons II album was a trundle through the Eagles Take it Easy. The song is too ubiquitous for any further traction to be gained from it perhaps but in any case here it is released on a 7" backed with a Matthew Cullen production of the track which promises a journey into Kraftwerk territories.   

Mac DeMarco
Another One

Smooth rolling singer-songwriter duuude Mac DeMarco has a new record out, even though it was just a year since the last! Excellent work ethic. Another One has eight fine tracks of his sauntering melancholy style, featuring not a note from anybody but DeMarco himself: a real solo album! Out on Captured Tracks.

Mac DeMarco
Rock And Roll Night Club

For his debut solo album, Mac DeMarco slowed the tape down so that his voice became a loungey, sleazy baritone and this, mixed with his superb songwriting made for a stunning record which stands alone somewhat in his catalogue. It comes across as a kind of lo-fi take on the dingy Americana of the likes of Lou Reed, Bruce Springsteen and Dwight Twilley. Later records were more breezy and conventional but this is one of his best.

Swervedriver
Think I'm Gonna Feel Better / Reflections

Swervedriver are the latest band of a shoegaze tinge to re-unite (or did they ever actually go away?) In any case they've just released a new album on Rock Action and to celebrate even further here is a 12" of non album tracks for Record Store Day 2019. Both songs are covers in  fact  - by two of my favourite artists - Gene Clark and the Supremes. Nice choices lads.

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 course this is only a slither of the whole story... but if you have to start somewhere...

Stef Chura
Midnight

Midnight is the second album by Michigan indie rocker Stef Chura. It follows her 2017 debut, Messes. The album was produced by Will Toledo, who you may know as the Car Seat Headrest guy. The albums treads similar ground to Pixies, Throwing Muses and The Breeders, a fact that I’m sure Chura would be delighted with. On Saddle Creek.

Younghusband
Swimmers

Younghusband are the vehicle for the songs of singer, songwriter and producer Euan Hinshelwood. Swimmers is their third album of airy guitar pop. It was recorded in their own recording studio in Greenwich with a more impulsive method than previous albums. Hinshelwood only shared his songs with band members on the day they were set to record them. On Opposite Number.

Priests
The Seduction Of Kansas

Priests made a big impression with their 2017 debut Nothing Feels Natural. The Washington DC post-punk band are back with their sophomore effort The Seduction Of Kansas. Here they added the influence of Massive Attack, Portishead and Nine Inch Nails to their post-punk base-layer. The result is a band with a more rounded sound. LP and CD on Sister Polygon.

Cowboy Flying Saucer
Travel Lodge

Sparrowhawk proudly present the second album by Walthamstow psych dad-rockers Cowboy Flying Saucer (comprising likely lads BK13, Spanna, Johnny Ven and Dave B), whose sound falls somewhere between Happy Mondays, The Fall and Spacemen 3. Named for the dependable hotel chain, Travel Lodge was recorded at The Sickroom in Norfolk.

Ida Mae
Chasing Lights

Norwich band Ida Mae release their debut album Chasing Lights. Here the pair, who emerged out of Kill It Kid, relish in their chemistry as they create music that lies at the intersection between the xx, the White Stripes and uh, something a bit steamy. They share a producer with Kings of Leon. On Vow Road.

Froth
Duress

LA’s Froth are back after two years away with their fourth album, Duress. Two years is hardly a long time to be away, but we're glad they're back. The album addresses such hot issues as the Yanny/Laurel debate. Their off-kilter shoegaze, psych, post-punk, slacker sound is all in check, which is the main thing, like. On Wichita.

Dylan LeBlanc
Renegade

Just imagine what a collaboration between Bob Dylan and Matt LeBlanc would sound like? Anyway, this is not that, this is Renegade, the fourth and latest album by Dylan LeBlanc. LeBlanc is a singer/songwriter with the spirit of Muscle Shoals coursing through his veins, although the album has an ‘80s pop/rock edge, similar to the recent work of another American singer songwriter we no longer talk about. On ATO.

Tim Heidecker
What The Brokenhearted Do…

Tim Heidecker has been taunting Donald Trump and American right-wing radio *expletive deleted* Alex Jones on social media so much that some alt. right trolls started a rumour that his wife had left him. It wasn’t true, but it gave him an idea - what would it feel like if she had? What The Brokenhearted Do is an album exploring how he might feel in the unlikely event of divorce. LP and Cassette on Jagjaguwar.

Dinosaur Pile-Up
Celebrity Mansions

After a four-year gap, Leeds’ post-grunge heroes Dinosaur Pile-Up return with their fourth studio album Celebrity Mansions. As has been frontman Matt Bigland’s style for the best part of a decade by now, it promises big melodies delivered with ferocious force, evidenced by lead single 'Thrash Metal Cassette'.

Perry Farrell
Kind Heaven

Perry Farrell has had a solo career alongside Jane’s Addiction since 1999. It’s just been lying dormant since 2001. At long last he is releasing his 3rd solo album, Kind Heaven. It seems he’s managed to pull in a few stars to help him too. It was produced by Farrell and Tony Visconti and features Dhani Harrison (George’s son), Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins and The Cars’ Elliot Easton.
