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 White Stripes with Mark Ronson advising…..sort of. LP and CD on Burger Records.

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 confident best just before things started to go slightly wrong.

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 title track and there's half a great album already. They simply redefined what pop could and should be.

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. Unfortunately, Alex Bass isn’t playing bass on this one. 6-track EP on Sister Polygon Records.

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” EP, includes download with 3 bonus tracks.

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 decided to piss", have never sounded so tragic.
  • Vinyl LP (TG364LP)

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.

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 brother Nate expanding the line-up, and now we have the third installment. Features guest performances from Hayley Williams of Paramore and Elizabeth Powell of Land Of Talk. LP and CD on Big Scary Monsters.

Kleenex Girl Wonder
White Lacuna

Given that Kleenex Girl Wonder are gearing up to mark 25 years in the game, you could forgive KGW main man Graham Smith if he wanted to take his foot off the gas a little. However, if anything the band are upping their work-rate these days. White Lacuna is the group’s second LP of 2018, and judging by the energy on display here they might be good for another one before 12 more months are up. This is an LP of typically zany indie jangles - imagine Eels with more pep.

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 Anton's own 'a' records imprint.

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 band mates Freda Love Smith (Blake Babies) and Todd Phillips (Juliana Hatfield Three) play drums on most tracks, Juliana Hatfield plays all the other instruments herself. LP and CD on American Laundromat.

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 release, as Never Odd Or Even, on Flashback.
  • Vinyl 12" (FB006)

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 then. On Flashback.

Lambchop
This (Is What I Wanted To Tell You)

Veteran alt-country mister Lambchop releasing with perhaps his thirtieth. For This (Is What I Wanted to Tell You) Kurt Wagner teamed up with fellow alternative country scenester Matthew McCaughan, known for playing drums for sad beard Bon Iver. The new album continues with the thoughtful mix of electronics and quiet country sounds started on 2016’s FLOTUS.

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 living in a country dictated to by an orange clown.

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 across the flimsy plastic.

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 Chris Pickering out of Future Punx. 12” vinyl EP.

J Mascis
Elastic Days

J Mascis writes a new album, a new album writes J Mascis. Elastic Days is his third solo studio LP away from the daily grind of being in Dinosaur Jr. As with previous albums Several Shades Of Why and Tied To A Star, this one finds The World's Slacker Dad focussing on the acoustic side of life. There’s a bit of a Woods vibe to numbers like ‘See You At The Movies’.

David Vassalotti
Guitar Dream

David Vassalotti is probably best known as being the guitarist with Floridian 4AD indie band, Merchandise. Guitar Dream is his third solo album and was produced by his band mate, Merchandise vocalist, Carson Cox. It is sort of a break-up album featuring a revolving cast of crestfallen characters. The songs are more akin to the work of his band than his previous more experimental albums. LP and CD on Wharf Cat Records.

Chemtrails
Cuckoo Spit EP

Cutesie and sweeping indie rockers Chemtrails striking the iron while it’s hot. They only just released Calf of the Sacred Cow and now they’re following it up with the Cuckoo Spit EP. You might be interested in this if you like early Arcade Fire, indie rock with that bedroom-recording whiff, or bands formed by couples.

Razorlight
Razorlight

Whilst Up All Night, the debut album by Razorlight, gave them some solid bricks to build on, their eponymous second sent them stratospheric. It contains the singles In The Morning and America, the latter gave the band their first and only number one, around the time when it just still mattered. 180g vinyl reissue LP on Mercury.

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 The Strokes and Television. 180g vinyl reissue on Mercury.

In a hardback book-style cover. Generous.

The 1975
A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships

Extremely (and unfathomably to people over 40) popular group the 1975 return with the thankfully shorter titled follow up to the one with the extremely long title. Who knew that when Tim Healey and Denise Welch got together this would be the result but there we are. That last LP reached number one on both sides of the little puddle we call the Atlantic ocean and interest is at fever pitch for this one.

Pinegrove
Skylight

Sad Americana lot Pinegrove dropping by with their third full-length now. Skylight sounds a bit like Death Cab for Cutie and Wilco got together for an album they didn’t really want to make. The result is a decent bunch of catchy sing-along anthems for when you’re stuck in rainy rush-hour traffic.

The Stones Roses eponymous debut is widely regarded as essential by many fans. it was originally released in 1989 and was central to the Madchester movement of the late 80s and early 90s. The vinyl reissue is an exact replica of the original, released for its 25th anniversary. It is also available on CD in a slimline digipak.

Transmaniacon feat. Lydia Lunch and Maya Berlin
The Strange World Of Suzie Pellet

Transmaniacon take their name from a Blue Oyster Cult song and describe themselves as 21st century schizoid people of the blue planet, which references a King Crimson song. It’s clear to see their prog influences, however, the music they make is a heavier brand of prog rock. They have teamed up with Lydia Lunch and Maya Berlin to bring to life The Strange World Of Suzie Pellet in the form a concept album. Suzie Pellet is a character created by horror/fantasy artist and novelist, Ian Miller. Transparent green/mustard half and half vinyl, limited to 300 copies of CD on New Heavy Sounds.

Exactly what you never knew you always needed: a fifteen-year-old album reissued on cassette. Maybe you need an extra copy for your car. Maybe you want to give it to somebody who can’t afford a record player. What do we know? Either way, The Shins’ 2001 classic Oh, Inverted World is finally stepping into the world of high fidelity cassette tapes!

Sleeper
The Modern Age

No-one thought this would happen, including the band. Sleeper have a new album out. It’s their first in twenty-one years, since the heady days of Britpop, and it’s called The Modern Age. The band used to be made up of three guys and a girl, now they’re made up of a novelist, two music lecturers and the ex-Prodigy bassist. All the old traits are in place - observational lyrics, catchy hooks and producer Stephen Street, but they’ve also been shrewd enough to make an album for The Modern Age (see what I did there?)

Mudhoney
Tomorrow Hit Today

Tomorrow Hit Today by Mudhoney, originally released in 1998, was the last album by the grunge pioneers to feature the original line-up. Bassist Matt Lukin left once the album was in the can. The album marks the point where Mudhoney brought elements of blues and garage rock to their sound, influenced by the legendary figurehead of Memphis music, Jim Dickinson, who produced the album. Reissue LP on blue, black and white mixed coloured vinyl. Limited to 1500.

The Fall
The Rough Trade Singles

Superior Viaduct reissue a collection of seminal early singles from The Fall. All released in the first few years of the 1980s by Rough Trade, these eight studio originals and two live versions snapshot a band in their element. Mark E. Smith & co made so many essential pieces in their time, but even by The Fall’s standards the ten tunes here stand as some of the definitive band’s definitive work. Contains, among other things, ‘Totally Wired’.

Bivouac
Peel Sessions + Tuber (Remastered)

A mention of Bivouac in a Guardian article by comedian Stewart Lee made the band reform to play the Gigantic festival in Manchester. Their flame burned briefly but they did things that those kids starting bands could only dream of in the early ‘90s. They played gigs with with Fugazi and Jesus Lizard and knew Nirvana. They recorded Peel Sessions and released records through indie label Elemental, which was pretty cool. In celebration of their reformation and the 25th anniversary of Tuber, their debut LP we have a lovely vinyl reissue paired with Peel Sessions recorded in 1992 and 1994. Classic ‘90s indie rock. Double LP on Thanks Capitalism Records.

Joy Division
Still

Funny when you reach the stage in a band’s life (or afterlife in this case I suppose) when even the compilations are being reissued. That said, the material remains crucial, always good to have the stuff available on vinyl. Still, first out in 1981, brings together Joy Division material that was unreleased at that time, including live recordings.

Qlowski
Pure As Fear

Maple Death Records (The Wound, His Clancyness) with a dose of short, sharp garage rock here. Qlowski impressed with their eponymous 2016 cassette, even making it onto a Bandcamp article about the best releases of the year ('so far'- it was June at the time). Follow-up EP Pure As Fear sees the Italian group everything that made that the first record so good and run with it. That means influences of Aussie punk, golden-age CBGB’s and Killing Joke are still clearly audible.

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.

Pixies

Second album from alternative rock stalwarts, Pixies. Doolittle is like when you see something disgusting, and you’re brain can’t quite decide if you want to keep looking at it and show it to everyone you know, or shut your eyes and hope it goes away. Surreal, catchy, dirty, noisy and really, really good.

First-time vinyl and electronic release for Low's 'imaginary film soundtrack' EP (originally released in 2000, a year before the seminal album 'Things we Lost in the Fire'). Largely instrumental, 'The Exit Papers' was definitely one of Low's more experimental records. The band sent copies of this out to movie executives in the hope of securing soundtrack-writing work. Purchase also includes download code.

For Against
Aperture

US post punk band For Against returned to the fold in 1993 after a five year hiatus with their third album, Aperture. Following in the footsteps of bands signed to Factory and 4AD, it could be argued that their take on darkwave foreshadowed bands such as Interpol. Reissue LP and digipak CD on Saint Marie.

Big’n

‘90s noise-rock luminaries Big’N have got the band back together in recent years. Their latest EP, the six-track Knife Of Sin, shows their powers to be undimmed. This is tortured, needling hardcore noise of the Jesus Lizard school. Steve Albini’s had a hand in this one, which seems about right.

Prior to the full length we have New Joy, a 7” single on Cooking Vinyl.

The Spinanes

Many groups to subsequently emerge from The Spinanes’ home town of Portland, Oregon owe quite a debt to the band’s melodic post-grunge sound.

State Champion
Send Flowers

State Champion have been around a while now, they play what has been described as ‘college drop-out rock and ‘Beard Rock’’. I’d describe it as American mid-fi indie, tinged at the edges by country rock with an occasional classic rock swagger. Edith Frost guests on the album and  David Berman of Silver Jews rates Ryan Davies as the best lyricist in his field. Send Flowers is their 4th album. LP on Sophomore Lounge.

Richard Swift
The Hex

Richard Swift sadly died on 3rd July, 2018. He was 41 years old. The gifted musician, songwriter, producer and filmmaker had worked with a number of acts in his career including Damien Jurado, The Shins, Foxygen (producing their first and best album) and The Black Keys. The Hex is Swift's final album which he completed shortly before his death. He put everything into this record - from cathartic songs about his late sister and mother to a patchwork of influences such as Doo-Wop, Wall of Sound, Funkadelic, Captain Beefheart, Bo Diddley and Link Wray. It’s a real shame that it will be his last album, but it looks like he has unwittingly saved the best until last. LP and CD on Secretly Canadian.

The Entrepreneurs
Noise & Romance

The Entrepreneurs are not a bunch of suits who met on The Apprentice and decided to form a band with a prosaic name, no, they’re a Danish noise rock band, and one of the must-see bands in Denmark, for that matter. Their debut album, Noise & Romance, explores cornerstones in rock music’s recent history mixing grunge, post rock and other such sub-genres into a potentially massive album. LP and CD on Tambourhinoceros.

New Order & Joy Division
Total (From Joy Division To New Order)

It’s never before been possible to study the trajectory of post-punk pioneers Joy Division and synth-rock sequel New Order in one sitting. The technology simply hasn’t been there. You’d need some kind of ‘play list’ - what a notion. But now, thanks to the latest developments, New Order are proud to present Total - a partial history of both.

SWANS
Die Tür Ist Zu

Lovely double-LP reissue of Swans’ 1996 EP Die Tür Ist Zu here by Mute. This release takes material from their towering Soundtracks For The Blind and translates it into German, while also including tracks unique to DTIZ. It finds them at their most alarming, fearsome and brilliant. Few bands would even attempt something like the Titanic, shapeshifting ‘Ligeti’s Breath/Hilflos Child’. Even fewer would be able to pull it off.

Felt
The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories

Before he hit paydirt producing the Stone Roses, John Leckie worked on one of Felt's best and most realised albums. The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories is another meanderingly titled album from this band's whose clipped arty indie pop is anything but flabby. Mixing the Velvet Underground with classical flourishes seemed to be the mindset here and it's a wonderful combination.

Half Man Half Biscuit
Let's Not

This is the third single by Birkenhead surrealists Half Man Half Biscuit. Released in 1990, this follow-up to the indie smash hit 'Dickie Davies Eyes' failed impact on the charts despite the band being championed by the late John Peel, who called them a 'national treasure'. It is, nonetheless, a classic. Available on 12" vinyl.

As we don't work in the London-based media, we don't get on with all the Fat White Family and related stuff we have been told to like so the likes of Insecure Men have rather passed us by. No doubt the Quietus will be on board with this new album from the toothless wonders as they rattle through covers from the likes of Bruce Springsteen, The Carpenters and Peter Andre.

Liverpool indie-popsters The Wombats released their fourth album, Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life (and they would know because they’re all gorgeous!) earlier in 2018. Not resting on their laurels, they have some new material already - Bee-Sting b/w Oceans is released on 7” transparent vinyl through their own label, The Wombats.

The Stroppies
The Stroppies

Melbourne-based The Stroppies took inspiration from Guided By Voices and The Great Unwashed in getting ideas recorded as quickly as possible so they were never standing still creatively. Starting out as a three-piece, they added a drummer following their wish to create more than the limiting nature of keyboard drum beats would allow. Despite fleshing-out their sound, their lo-fi, DIY charm still remains intact. The Stroppies are comprised from members of bands such as The Stevens, Dick Diver and See/Saw. Self-titled mini-LP on Tough Love Records, limited to 200 copies.

Paul Weller
Stanley Road

I don't know which Paul Weller album this is. It doesn't really matter. If you like him you'll be interested in getting it on vinyl. Whether you can afford the £32.99 asking price is another matter. The music industry screwed itself up in the past by charging £16 for CDs that cost pennies to make. Looks like they are off the same way with vinyl. Obviously this format is more expensive to produce so a higher retail price is understandable but this is really taking the piss especially when there are no extras and nothing deluxe.

Gengahr, a band probably named after a Pokemon, have their second album ready to go, and it’s a twelve track tour of the group’s current capabilities.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Henry's Dream

Reissue of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds’ seventh album, thanks to Mute. Henry’s Dream is something of a fan favourite as Cave albums go, and includes ‘Papa Won’t Leave You, Henry’ and ‘Jack The Ripper’. Very much a proper reissue, overseen by Mick Harvey, approved by Cave, and pressed to good solid 180g vinyl with a download code to boot!

Sufjan Stevens
Songs For Christmas

How nice it would be to live in Sufjan world. Each year around the festive season he'd gather round with friends to make a Christmas EP. He'll be there in a massive jumper singing away. Heartwarming. Well this tradition went on for a few years and now you can get all the yuletide fruits on this box set of all the songs. Sufjan's folky and melancholy tones are just perfect for Christmas listening. Let it sleet.

Sufjan Stevens
Blue Bucket of Gold / Hotline Bling (feat. Gallant)

Sufjan Stevens recently released the live concert film of Carrie & Lowell Live, and this release includes a digital download for the entire audio of that set. But what's on the actual wax? Well that would be ‘Blue Bucket Of Gold’ on one side and a slightly surprising cover of Drake’s hit banger ‘Hotline Bling’ on the other. Translucent blue vinyl too! On Asthmatic Kitty.

Great news! Cloud Nothings have made their loudest record to date! It's also one of their fastest. The Cleveland OH band have drafted in Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth etc.) to help replicate their intense and powerful live sound on this thirty-minute one-sitting-listen slab of racket churn.

Calexico
The Black Light (20th Anniversary Edition)

The Black Light by Calexico was originally released 20 years ago so it seems fitting that we now have a 20th anniversary version to savour. It was the band’s second album, but probably the first to get them noticed. Their mix of mariachi brass, flamenco, indie rock and jazz wrapped up in dusty Americana was seamlessly blended to create a sound that is very much their own. Features a guest appearance from Howe Gelb of Giant Sand. Double LP and CD on City Slang.

Mandolin Orange
Tides of a Teardrop

Tides of a Teardrop is about as sad as it sounds, with the songs on this album searching for weights to bear. Country music mister and misses Mandolin Orange try to deal with the death of Andrew Marlin’s mum by writing songs about it. The result is a quiet and introspective album with mournful tunes, wailing violins, and slow-paced vocals.

Jaws are back with album number three, The Ceiling. The Birmingham dream pop band get lumped in with the Digbeth B-Town scene - a scene that supposedly revolves around The Twang, Swim Deep and Peace, although they deny existence of such a scene. The band are popular with Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens. LP and CD on JAWS.

Teenage Fanclub
Thirteen

Thirteen, Teenage Fanclub’s third album was unfairly treated by critics upon release. This may be as it followed up a bona fide classic in Bandwagonesque. Whatever the reason, it was unfair and with this reissue, it’s time to listen and enjoy with fresh ears. The album saw the band referencing their heroes Big Star with the album’s title and The Byrds with closing track Gene Clark. Initial pressings come with a bonus 7” single.

Kaiser Chiefs
Yours Truly, Angry Mob

2007 saw the release of the second album by massively popular Leeds band Kaiser Chiefs. Yours Truly, Angry Mob only served to make them even more massive with opening track, Ruby, reaching number one in the hit parade. Like their debut album, it was produced by Stephen Street, who also lent his knob twiddling skills to records by The Smiths and Blur. Heavyweight vinyl reissue on B-Unique/Polydor.

Richard Ashcroft
Alone With Everybody

Richard Ashcroft, as you probably know, was the lead singer with The Verve. Alone With Everybody was his debut solo album, and moved Ashcroft even further away from The Verve’s early shoegazing sound. It was very popular with people who like this kind of thing upon its release in 2000. Chris Martin of Coldplay has apparently hailed Ashcroft as the greatest singer in the world. 180g vinyl repress on EMI.

Debut EP All The Things I Never Said from indie pop outfit Pale Waves, a quartet hailing from Manchester. Taking subtle hints from 80s synth-pop acts like The Cure and much heavier ones from the likes of The 1975 (the group are endorsed by Matty Healy himself). Out on clear red 12" vinyl, on Dirty Hit.

Dead Naked Hippies / No Fixed Identity
Young Male Rage / 123

Dead Naked Hippies. Imagine that... Anyway, this is the latest split-7” from Leeds-based singles club Come Play With Me. As outlined in the Norman Records™ description for their RIIB/FURR release, this particular Norman Records™ blurb writer has a vested interest in the label’s success on account CPWM having released an ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT song by his own band. So don’t buy this new DNH/No Fixed Identity thing for you - buy it for me.

My mum tells me that I’m the Perfect Son, so I’m not really sure what this fella’s playing at. Get off my turf, Perfect Son! Anyway, the artist born Tobiasz Biliński and known for a few years as Coldair has come out swinging on Cast, his first LP for Sub Pop. Cast is a record of brash, confident electro-pop of the Gary Numan/Depeche Mode school.

R.E.M.
Dead Letter Office

R.E.M. in the early days were a great B sides band. They always ensured that each single came with a gaggle of excellent additional tracks. Dead Letter Office does the decent thing and round these up on one collection. From the sublime (their take on Pylon's 'Crazy') to ridiculous (laugh-a-long versions of Aerosmith's 'Toys in the Attic' and Roger Miller's 'King Of The Road' - it's all here.

Unwound
Leaves Turn Inside You

I swear this already got reissued and I wrote a bunch of words about it but whatever. This is an absolute classic of noise rock and it's from the architects of the genre, Unwound. After years spent hacking away on harsher arrangements and disquieting volumes, Unwound realised no one cared about their racket and started writing quieter, more sinewy material in which frontman Justin Trosper mumbled nihilist missives. One of the tracks on this one is called "Who Cares" and that about sums it up, except for that Leaves Turn Inside You is now considered an absolute classic and beloved all over. This is the missing link between The Dead C and Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

Mohit
Racek / Discover Another

Perfectly competent pop from a group who might have designs on being the next Jungle here. MOHIT are actually much better than the aforementioned - on debut single ‘Racek’/’Discover Another’ the trio demonstrate some real songwriting chops and a way with melody that takes in Haruomi Hosono, Khruangbin and Hiatus Kaiyote.

The reissue LP is only available through independent record stores like ours!

The Breeders
Safari EP

Someone at 4AD has decided that it’s probably about time they got round to reissuing some old Breeders records. It might have something to do with the fact that Kim Deal et al released their first LP in ten years earlier on in 2018. It’s definitely got something to do with Record Store Day’s Black Friday event. Anyway, 1992’s Safari EP is still good after all these years. Sounds like Breeders with a hint of Breeders.

They feature Mia Schoen from Sleepy Township and a number of other well-loved Australian Bands, with Harriet and Phoebe from Australian no wave group Olsen Twins and Jen and Stew from Boyracer.

The Oddfellows’ Hall is the eighth album in 10 years by Australian indie six-piece The Ocean Party. The band, who all write their songs together, have poured a whole lot of recent life experiences into their songs for this one. From babies to break-ups to homelessness to returning home. The title of the album is taken from the name of the New South Wales community hall in which they recorded the album. LP, limited to 150 copies on Emotional Response.

DOG Power
DOG Power

Following a couple of singles, New Zealand duo DOG Power release their eponymous debut album. The duo are made up of Sam Perry, a singer songwriter with an indie pop slant, and Henry Nicol, an experimental musician. It’s probably down to the latter that, although the pair make pop music, it is brooding and dark. An obvious reference point would be early Depeche Mode, but there are also guitars slicing through the electronics. There’s something about them that most definitely ties them to the Flying Nun stable, too. LP on Flying Nun.

Jealous of the Birds returns after 2016’s Parma Violets. Naomi Hamilton’s new EP Wisdom Teeth finds the Northern Irish indie songwriter pondering such topics as a life in music and the reconciliation of inner and outer selves. She does so with dextrous, poetic lyrics and excellent, folky choruses, in which her voice takes off beautifully.

Hailing from Brunswick, Australia, it’s indie pop-punk quartet Press Club with new album Late Teens. Those dratted teens - they never show up on time. Interesting sound this lot have: tempos, percussion and guitar style that oft hint at punk; jangly indie melodies and, not least, female vocals that draw as well from soulful pop as indie.

The Ninth Wave

The Ninth Wave is a famous Russian painting. It also happens to be the name of this new ‘80s style new wave/goth/indie combo. Whether or not they took their name from the painting at this point is unknown. What I can tell you is that their new EP is called Flesch and that this is the kind of stuff that will get played a lot on 6 Music. In summary: likely to do well. CD EP on Distiller

First time on vinyl for Piano Magic's wonderful, evocative soundtrack for the Bigas Luna film 'Son de Mar' (which translates as 'Sound of the Sea'). Mixing Godspeed like string arrangements with beautiful Max Richter like neo-classical compositions and rustic field recordings, Piano Magic made a soundtrack that stands completely alone as an inspiring piece of work and one of the high water marks of their varied career.

The Fall
58 Golden Greats

There aren’t many bands who could release a career-spanning retrospective and call it 58 Golden Greats without stretching the truth as to the number of songs or the golden greatness of the music. The prolific nature of The Fall means that they can, however. This trans-label overview was compiled by Daryl Easlea, who knows a thing or two about the Manchester post-punk and beyond legends. The material is picked from albums running right up to their final album, New Facts Emerge. 3CD box set on Cherry Red.

Yung Wu
Shore Leave

Yung Wu! This brings back memories. They were an oddball side project of the Feelies led by their percussionist Dave Weckerman.  As it was produced by Feelies guitarists Glenn Mercer and Bill Million it sounds pretty much like the Feelies but with a more naive pop style with nods to the Modern Lovers and something of Daniel Johnston in Weckerman's rudimentary voice.
