SWANS
Love of Life

Mute records continue their killer Swans reissue series with 1992’s Love of Life. Not only has the record been out of print for a really long time, but now you can get it with remastered sound, poster, download code and 18 bonus tracks with the digital download. This album was when Michael Gira’s group started to use pop and rock elements, but it’s still nasty, abrasive and brilliant.

CHAI
PUNK

After PINK we have PUNK. The sophomore LP from the much-hyped Japanese group Chai finds them once more wringing musical gold from their ‘neo-Kawaii’ aesthetic. That means that here we have a selection of whip-smart, ebullient funk-punk jams which challenge conventions of beauty and cuteness. Think Liquid Liquid, Gang Gang Dance and Le Tigre all getting together and having a bloody great time. Really good.

Indian Summer
Giving Birth To Thunder

One of the earliest progenitors of emo, Oakland’s Indian Summer had an eventful career, even if it only lasted 12 months. Laying down just 10 tracks, which appeared variously on singles and compilations over 1993 and 1994, Giving Birth To Thunder sees the Numero Group label gather all their recordings in one place for the very first time, along with some lovingly assembled liner notes and media.

black midi
Talking Heads / Crows Perch

Soon-to-be-massive Londoners black midi are trying very hard to adopt an enigmatic persona with a series of low key releases such as the bmbmbm (we told you they were enigmatic) 7" on Speedy Wunderground. Finally they release their first big thing and it's of no surprise that Rough Trade have snapped them up. Their sound is energetic, danceable, accessible but also somewhat original. We haven't got many of these so you'll need to be quick to get on board.

The Wedding Present
Tommy 30

30 years on from its original release, the Wedding Present have re-recorded Tommy. At the time it was something of the less loved younger sibling to their their debut proper, being that it collected a selection of their early singles. The new recording shows how the band have grown and evolved, and deliberately conceives of them as belonging to one release.

Brittany Howard
Jaime

The debut solo album from modern American rock icon Brittany Howard, also known as the lead singer of Alabama Shakes and Thunderbitch. Jaime is named for Howard’s sister, who died from a rare form of cancer as a teen, and it should provide another platform for the singer’s ferocious voice. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Yo La Tengo
Fakebook

Awww what an album this is. Earlier Yo La Tengo records had been crunchy full band affairs somewhere between Neil Young and the Feelies but here they stripped down for the first time replacing bass with double bass and drafting in expert guitarist Dave Schramm to run through some of their favourite songs and some originals. The result is superb as they delve deep into the musical past re-inventing songs by the likes of the Kinks, John Cale and the Flaming Groovies.

Chastity Belt
Chastity Belt

Following a re-energising 18 months or so recording solo or playing with different bands, Washington’s Chastity Belt return with a fourth album of thoughtful and expressive punk. A self-titled effort, it was recorded with Jay Som’s Melina Duterte and saw the quartet force themselves out of their comfort zone, adding newer sonic elements to the mix.

Field Music
Making A New World

New album from Sunderland area clever clogs Field Music. But it's not just any old new album this is a song cycle based on the first world war. The idea started from a project they were working on with the Imperial War Museum about US War Department publications but grew as the brothers wrote pieces about various elements of the aftermath of the war such as skin grafting, the dada movement and office work. They aren't just any ordinary band are they? 

Disco Inferno
The 5 Eps

Disco Inferno were an incredibly creative but short-lived band who splurged out a series of excellent records in the early 90s before disappearing in a haze of smoke before they could get the full credit they deserved. They were fond of an EP and this release collects five of these mini-masterpieces showcasing how their sound had evolved from atmospheric Joy Division-esque beginnings to their later hugely influential sampledelic innovations. Stunning and deeply affecting music.

No Sister
Influence EP

The latest EP available from Australian post-punk group No Sister. The 'Influence EP' was reportedly influenced (eh? eh?) by toying with traditional song structures and, bizarrely, Phil Collins' 'In The Air Tonight'. If lead single 'Burning News' is anything to go by, expect moody vibes and deadpan vocals. 

Roxy Girls
A Poverty Attention

Sunderland-based newcomers Roxy Girls continue to build up a head of steam with their first mini-album, A Poverty of Attention. Recorded with Field Music’s Peter Brewis and released on the fine Moshi Moshi label, it’s seven tracks of discordant, angular post-punk that wants to save you from real life. Inspired by the likes of XTC and Wire.

SILKess Demon
SILKess Demon EP

SILKess Demon feature Dominique Golden and Nik Clifford from Jesus Licks. Their self titled EP mixes up garage rock and folk rock in a lo-fi style and could be compared to a kind lo-fi version of Jethro Tull. This very limited edition 12” EP was lathe cut at home by Nik Clifford himself. On Pearl Home Records.

The Motorcycle Boy
Scarlet

The Motorcycle Boy were an indie pop band who formed in Edinburgh in 1987. The band was made up from former members of the Shop Assistants and Meat Whiplash. Their only album, 'Scarlet', was shelved by their label, Chrysalis, and the band split. Fortunately Forgotten Astronaut have got it down from the shelf and released it, some 32 years after it was recorded. Includes their indie chart hit, 'Big Rock Candy Mountain'.

The Fall
The Unutterable Plus

Special deluxe edition of The Fall’s 2000 album The Unutterable, appearing here with a whole disc of extras! Now I don’t exactly know what to tell you about The Fall, you probably already know a thing or two about this band. This album brought Smith and the gang into the 21st century, and the critical dust on this album seems to have settled very positively.

Reverend and The Makers
Best Of

With the country in ruins we all really need a pick-me-up right now. If you could hope for any kind of art to take us away from all the suffering then I'd bet you, like me, would choose a best of Reverend and the Makers. Re-live again all those thumping era-defining hits on one collection with the added bonus of two new songs. If you caught them live at York Firework Festival or Coombe Weekender this will serve as a reminder of those golden nights.

Josef K
The Scottish Affair (Part 2)

Scottish post punk band Josef K started life on Postcard Records along with the likes of Orange Juice. 'The Scottish Affair (Part 2)' was recorded in Brussels in April 1981 when the band were in their pomp. Recorded directly from the mixing desk and newly remastered for this release. On Les Disques Du Crepuscule.

The Wannadies
Be A Girl

Ah 25 years ago we were singing "You And Me Always...And Forever!" at the top of our lungs. These Swedish rockers certainly hit pay dirt with that song but the album it came from is no slouch either. 'Be A Girl' was obviously the biggest album of their career but it's no one hit wonder. Their catchy and vibrant guitar pop was perfect for the Brit-Pop era....and for looking back at your youth.

Cranes
Self Non-Self

Sort-of goths The Cranes released their second EP, Self Non-self in 1989. It was their first proper release, really, following on from the 1986 cassette-only Fuse EP.  To mark it’s 30th anniversary, an expanded version of the EP is being re-released. The band were led by brother and sister duo Alison and Jim Shaw and, despite not releasing anything since 2008, still perform to this day. 180g pink & black coloured vinyl, limited to 1000 copies on Music On Vinyl.

The Fall
New Facts Emerge

"Produced in conjunction with Mark E Smith" says the press release. Let's hope he was involved somewhere even if only for microphone gurgling. This is the Fall's millionth LP but the first since 2015's 'Sub Lingual Tablet'-  a lifetime in the Fall world. Now settled in a dependable trudge-a-long line up let's hope this has some of the panache recent records have lacked. On weird formats.

LIFE
A Picture Of Good Health

Sharp, erudite post-punk from Hull’s LIFE here. The group’s sophomore LP A Picture Of Good Health was mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer, a man who previously worked on Parquet Courts’ Wide Awake!. It's no surprise that Mittendorfer accepted this gig too - there’s a bite and snap to tracks like ‘Hollow Thing’ that would have Austin Brown & co nodding approvingly. That Bodega band are probably keen on LIFE as well.

Liam Gallagher
Why Me? Why Not.

Hmmm, new solo album from Liam Gallagher, with the enormous shrug of a title Why Me? Why Not. Why not indeed, we might wonder. The younger Gallagher it out front and centre here, with a loyal band behind him to make his grand visions come out just as he wants them. This second solo full length is out on Warner Bros.

Mudhoney
Morning In America

You wait years for a new Mudhoney LP and then two come along at once. After the Seattle grunge veterans returned to the fray back in 2018 with the excellent 'Digital Garbage', the band now offer up another set of tracks less than a year on from that record. Not everything on 'Morning In America' is new - ‘Vortex Of Lies’ was on a hyper-limited tour 7” while ‘Let’s Kill Yourself Live Again’ and ‘One Bad Actor’ are re-workings of older material - but by and large this is fresh meat. All of the cuts on 'Morning In America' date from the 'Digital Garbage' sessions.

Nirvana
Live and Loud

Shot at their homecoming show in Seattle on December 13th 1993, Live And Loud was aired on MTV but has never been available as a stand-alone audio release. Originally included as part of the In Utero super deluxe re-issue in 2013, it’s now available by itself, on double vinyl with a ‘replica backstage pass’ download card.

These New Puritans
Hidden

Hidden was probably the first time we noticed that These New Puritans were no ordinary band. First up, leader Jack Barnett claimed that he was writing some of these pieces to be played on bassoon and they eventually brought in a Czech orchestra, a children's choir, a cream cracker and six foot African drums to help realise their vision. The result is a powerful and uncompromising album which unfathomably blends neo-classical with dancehall and electronica.

Arcade Fire
Neon Bible

2007 brought the second album of Arcade Fire, the semi-conceptual grandeur of Neon Bible. The great Canadians outdid themselves here with an album full of religious fear, chamber orchestration and general vastness, with bangers like ‘No Cars Go’ and the organ-doom of ‘Intervention’ just some of the set-pieces. Sony reissue.

Ty Segall
First Taste

Perhaps they should have got someone who knows about Ty Segall to write about 'First Taste', but no, it's me. Lead single 'Taste' sounds like what I think Segall sounds like, catchy fuzzy guitars accompanied by catchy fuzzy vocals. The album even features some dual drumming with Mr. Segall bashing away on one of the drums. Very enticing!

The Replacements
Tim

Rhino are reissuing a bunch of The Replacements’ albums to vinyl, and 1985’s Tim is one of them. Tim was the band’s first album for a major label and it remains a high-point of their discography: indeed, it is a key piece of the US alternative-rock puzzle. It contains the hit songs ‘Bastards Of The Young’ and “Left Of The Dial’. Vinyl reissue.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Ian Brown
Unfinished Monkey Business

Everyone thinks he looks like a monkey anyway so Ian Brown ran with the theme for his first solo album. After the disaster that was the Stone Roses last few years, Unfinished Monkey Business was way better than it had any right to be and includes Brown's possible solo high water mark 'Corpses In Their Mouths' amongst other lo-fi and funky songs.    
  • Genre(s):

The Boo Radleys
Wake Up!

Released in 1995, Wake Up! was a watershed moment for The Boo Radleys, who were quietly one of the most innovative bands of the Britpop era. Housing the eternal radio hit ‘Wake Up Boo!’, a Top 10 hit, the album itself topped the British charts, powered by bold, brash choruses and pop-based optimism driving out the darkness and doubt of their previous records.

Oasis
Definitely Maybe (25th Anniversary Edition)

Definitely Maybe, aka The Best League In The World, is now more than a quarter of a century old. The 1994 debut LP from a bunch of retiring church mice known as Oasis still towers over the British popsphere, crushing all who dare challenge it - Blur, Lewis Capaldi and nearly all of the Gallaghers’ subsequent creative endeavours to name but three (that’s so sad, Siri play ‘Wonderwall’). The thing is though … it’s still good. Like, SO good. Despite all that’s come since - lad(ette) culture, countless dreadful bands ripping off the 'Definitely Maybe' sound, ‘The Hindu Times’ - despite all that we know now, these songs still slam every single time you listen to them. ‘Supersonic’. ‘Live Forever’. ‘Cigarettes And Alcohol’. Who could deny their majesty? 'Definitely Maybe' deserves its place at the top of the pile.

Alex Cameron
Miami Memory

Step aside dad rock, Alex Cameron's here and he's got something called stepdad rock in the shape of Miami Memory. It's hard to know exactly what that means but part of it seems to be about looking out rather than in. Musically we've got overwrought and emotional anthems with a bit of saxophone and church organ for good measure.

Versus
Ex Voto

American indie rock stalwarts, Versus, return with their first album in nine years, Ex Voto. It is the band’s sixth album in their 25 year career. It follows their recent EP, Ex Nihilo and support slots with Ex Hex and Galaxie 500. Lead single Mummified is typical of the band, mixing glorious melodies with something much darker and screechy. It is worth noting that their bass player is called Fontaine Toups. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

TaxiWars
Artificial Horizon

Formed as a collaborative project that includes dEUS frontman Tom Barman, TaxiWars return for the first time in three years with third studio album Artificial Horizon. A subtle evolution in terms of scope, this time around the production is clearer and more focussed on groove and rhythm, while still keeping the jazzy elements that attracted fans to them before.
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Teenage Fanclub
Bandwagonesque

Bandwagonesque by Teenage Fanclub was originally released in 1991 - the same year as Nevermind, Loveless and Screamadelica, no less. It is the perfect blend of harmony-laden, melodic ‘60s and ‘70s pop, indie rock and distorted guitars. It is rightly regarded as a classic and any record collection is not complete without it.

The Fall
Room To Live

Room to Live was strange stop in the continuing journey of the Fall. They'd literally only just unleashed the impressive Hex Enduction Hour when Mark E Smith marshalled his troupes for a swift follow up. The speed at which it was recorded and released makes it understandably one of the Fall's most improvised sounding works. Not an easy listen, there's a tough, raw feel to it but it contains at least one future classic in the magnificent rural sprawl of Hard Life in Country. This marble vinyl re-issue is padded out with of-the-era live recordings.

Future Pilot AKA
Orkestra Digitalis

Sushil K Dade presents his final studio album under his Future Pilot AKA moniker, Orkestra Digitalis. It’s taken him a whole nine years to actually release, partly because it was never intended to be heard as a regular album. Rather, it was initially conceived of as a kind of treasure hunt for fans across the entirety of Scotland, tagged the #soniktreasurehunt. 
  • Genre(s):

Emily Jane White
Immanent Fire

It seems Emily Jane White has gone big on her new album, Imminent Fire, bringing in strings, choirs and heavy guitars. The big sounds on offer are tempered by her voice in this truly widescreen affair. Lyrically she concerns herself with the urgent issues facing the future of the environment and feminism. 
  • Genre(s):
  • Indie Rock / Alternative Rock

Kazu
Adult Baby

Having made her name as the lead singer of indie-rock veterans Blonde Redhead, Adult Baby represents the first-ever solo album from Kazu Makino. Featuring contributions from some stellar names include Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier, Son Lux’s Ian Chang and none other than the legendary Ryuichi Sakamoto, the album is an opportunity for the star to reveal a new aspect of her personality. 

Garden Centre
A Moon For Digging

How to describe Garden Centre? Hmm...can you imagine Trust Fund trying their best to cover a bunch of Rush songs? That’s somewhere close. They have been likened to the aforementioned Trust Fund as well as Neutral Milk Hotel and Daniel Johnson. On A Moon For Digging you find ear worming melodies presented in the most wonderful wonky fashion.

Chastity
Home Made Satan

The Devil just like your mother used to make on the second LP from Brandon Williams’ Chastity project. Home Made Satan is a set of emotional, widescreen rock and emo from the Ontario native. Williams mourns The Current State Of Affairs over agonised instrumentals that recall the likes of American Football and early Death Cab To Cutie.

Thurston Moore
Pollination / Leave Me Alone

Having made a name for himself in NYC rock outfit Sonic Youth, Thurston Moore returns under his solo guise with this enthralling cover of New Order's 'Pollination / Leave Me Alone'. Recorded in Salford ('the only place he would dare to cover a New Order song') Moore here pays homage to his idols with a fresh take on the track.

Sebadoh

Take a look at these grizzled men. Those are the sort of rough hewn looks that only come after years dedicated to lo-fi guitar rock. Yup Sebadoh are back with their first album since 2013s Defend Yourself. With classic original line up in place they return with 15 further dysfunctional college rock tunes harking back to their '90s heyday.

Tallies
Tallies

Tallies are very new and very upbeat indie-pop four-piece from Toronto, Canada. From their guitar work influences such as The Durutti Column and Johnny Marr, are clear to see, whilst the vocals hint at the Cocteau Twins and The Sundays. All this is filtered through a Beach Boys surf vibe. LP and CD on Fear Of Missing Out.

Pixies
Come On Pilgrim

Back in the day 'Come On Pilgrim' was the album you went to after you'd had your socks knocked off by 'Surfer Rosa' or 'Doolittle' or whichever Pixies album first took your fancy. Their debut mini LP with tracks taken almost exclusively from their demo recordings signposts a band arriving fully formed with a spiky and unusual new sound. Contains the future classics 'Vamos', 'Holiday Song' and several more wildly original gems.

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 b-sides and a recording of a gig at the Astoria, which happens to be Richey’s last… I know I’m tempted.

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.

Grouper
The Man Who Died In His Boat

Originally released in 2013, this album was recorded by Liz Harris alongside her best-known work, Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill. It’s in the same stylistic ballpark - ethereal, heavily reverbed electric guitar and vocals with dark and mysterious undercurrents, sometimes swimming into clearer focus when Harris switches to acoustic. Out of print for a while and now back on CD.

The Hold Steady
Thrashing Thru The Passion

The Hold Steady have been making a slow, but...ahem...steady comeback recently. Their new album, Thrashing Thru The Passion, is the culmination of that steady comeback. It contains five songs recorded between 2017 and 2019 that have only been downloadable until now, and five brand new bar room bangers.

  • Genre(s):

Egyptian Blue
Collateral

Egyptian Blue are one of those post-punk bands who combine angular guitars, angry-young-man ire and propulsive rhythm work. Unsurprisingly they get a lot of comparisons to Gang Of Four, but on debut EP Collateral the Brighton four-piece come across more like Foals having a go at doing Parquet Courts - no bad thing in our books. The title track is the hit. Out through Yala! Records (The Magic Gang, Yak).
  • Genre(s):

Sam Fender
Dead Boys EP

Sam Fender is well on his way to being massive. He was nominated for the BBC sound of 2018 award and one of his songs was used on the FIFA 19 game. His songs are generally about social and political subjects, largely inspired by his hometown of North Shields. His music is arena-ready with anthemic choruses and forceful production. 6 track EP, vinyl or cassette, on Polydor.

Guided By Voices
Half Smiles of The Decomposed

'Half Smiles of the Decomposed' was the final Guided By Voices album in their first life before several years of myriad of solo projects prior to their return in 2010. As a result the album always had an air of finality about it particularly in closer 'Huffman Prairie Flying Field' but it's full of their usual razor sharp riffs and pop classic melodies particularly the effortless power-pop of 'Girls of Wild Strawberry'. If you like GBV, you'll need this.

Many of the 21 songs - presented over two LPs / one CD - do not appear on their early albums, as the band actually used the sessions to experiment with new material.

Featuring the usual four songs a piece from Norman Blake, Gerard Love and Raymond McGinley it is further proof as to why these guys are justly lauded as such reliable songsmiths. This re-issue comes with a bonus 7" of rare tracks. Put on your comfiest jumper and dive in. 

Fu Manchu
Start The Machine

Start the Machine was the eighth album from stoner rock mainstays Fu Manchu and the only one not to be released on vinyl... until today of course now that the good people at At the Dojo have re-mastered it and pressed it for your listening pleasure.

Joseph
Good Luck, Kid

US trio Joseph return with their new album, Good Luck, Kid. They have left behind the folk sound of their first album to make a collection meatier pop/rock songs. The album is supposed to play out like a road movie. The themes are positive, about finding yourself and fighting for what’s important. It was produced by Christian “Leggy” Langdon known for his work with Meg Myers and Charlotte OC.

Broken Chanter
Broken Chanter

David MacGregor from Scottish pop lot Kid Canaveral does the solo thing as Broken Chanter collaborating with a hotchpotch of all stars including Emma Kupa of Mammoth Penguins and members of Withered Hand. It's an opportunity for MacGregor to show the sensitive side of his songwriting crafting heart-tugging songs with an ear for melody.   

(Sandy) Alex G
House of Sugar

He just gets better and better. From lo-fi beginnings (Sandy) Alex G has slowly but surely emerged as one of the best songwriters of his generation. 2017's superb Rocket added a fascinating experimental bent to his songs and was a multi-faceted unpredictable riot of sound. Early indications for House of Sugar are of further warm country-tinged songs with nods towards Elliott Smith and Lou Barlow but complete as always with Alex G's wistful, autumnal melancholy.

The Roves
Hey Little Man / Once A Prefect

A cut taken from their latest studio album All Those Freaks, ‘Hey Little Man’ is the latest single from hotly tipped North London indie quartet The Roves. Recorded at Ray Davies’ legendary Konk studio, it’s getting a special 7” vinyl release backed with album track ‘Once A Prefect’.

Boy Scouts
Free Company

Boy Scouts is the name under which Bay Area singer-songwriter, Taylor Vick, makes her music. Her second album, Free Company, was produced by fellow singer-songwriter, Stephen Steinbrink. After a decade or so of experimenting and honing her craft, it seems that she has found the right producer, the right balance of instruments which allow her voice to be the star.

The Fall
Totale's Turns (It's Now Or Never)

The Fall have always been fond of a live album and this goes all the way back to 1980 when they issued 'Totale's Turns' but as always with the Fall there's studio recordings mixed in there as well just to confuse matters.  Here you get a 140 gram re-issue of the original album. A nice way to celebrate Mark E Smith's 60th.

The Fall
The Unutterable

The Unutterable was The Fall's 21st album and was initially released on CD only in 2000. It was long unavailable on vinyl but deservedly now appears on a 2LP set. It's one of the Fall's more celebrated albums from their later years, the usual chaos around the group seemingly inspiring Mark E. Smith to greater forms of creativity. Worth it for the opening two tracks alone including the great Cyber Insekt which sounds like Stereolab in a food mixer. Ideas galore amongst these 15 tracks. There'll never be another group like them.    

Ceschi
Sans Soleil

Julio Francisco Ramos, the Connecticut-based rapper better known as Ceschi, reveals the second part of his planned trilogy of records that’ll see him bow out of his career. Having won acclaim for Sad, Fat Luck earlier this year, Sans Soleil is another playful and political suite of switched-on hip-hop. 

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.

Weezer
Weezer (Green Album)

Weezer reissues! Everyone’s favourite US power-indie-pop hitmakers get pressed up to 180g wax by Universal, getting their post-2000’s work fully available again. Their Green Album was the first album Rivers and co. made after a semi-split, and it contains the smash singles ‘Hash Pipe’ and ‘Island In The Sun’.

The Flaming Lips
King's Mouth

King’s Mouth is The Flaming Lips fifteenth album. It is named after, and based on, Wayne Coyne’s mind-bending art installation. According to Coyne, it comes from the same nucleus as the band’s live performances. Needless to say, it’s a typically odd/beautiful mix of sounds and words. Mick Jones of The Clash keeps popping up and narrating bits of it too.
  • Genre(s):

Arcade Fire
The Suburbs

The Suburbs from Arcade Fire is probably one of their most liked records by fans and critics alike because it's a record that is made, not manufactured. A collection of tracks that take you up and down on an emotional rollercoaster of melancholy and cheerful summery vibes. Available on double Vinyl LP and CD and released on Mercury.

Spielbergs
Running All The Way Home

Running All The Way home by Norwegian indie band, Spielbergs, follows on from their debut album, This Is Not The End, and a UK tour which was rounded off with support slots with Foxing and a bunch of successful festival appearances. Their new EP shows no sign of their urgent, adrenaline-fuelled sound letting up.

R.E.M.
Monster (25th Anniversary Edition)

Originally released in 1994, at a time when the band decided to tour again after a live hiatus but had enjoyed their greatest commercial successes yet, Monster occupies an odd place in R.E.M.’s story. Often described as a “rock” album (ironic quote marks intended) and characterised by a rawer, scruffier guitar sound, this curious album gets a 25th anniversary re-issue courtesy of Craft. LP, 2xCD and 2xLP re-mastered versions are available, but the deluxe box-set version is the eye-catcher, featuring five CDs including demos, live shows and a special 2019 mix, on top of a Blu-Ray disc that includes the Road Movie film, plus music videos for all six of Monster’s singles.

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.

Anthony Reynolds
A Painter’s Life

A Painter’s Life, the latest solo LP from former Jack And Jacques member Anthony Reynolds, is an album as rich and romantic as its title suggests. This is a glorious set of indie show-tunes that blends the stately swagger of Richard Hawley with avant-garde flourishes and some nice chamber-pop orchestration. The resulting record will end up plugging the You Are The Quarry-shaped hole in your life now that Morrissey has spoiled it for the rest of us. A Painter’s Life features contributions from Japan’s Robert Dean, Dub War’s Richard Glover and 60ft Dolls’ Carl Bevan to name but three.

The Frogs
It's Only Right and Natural

The Frogs were a brothers Jimmy and Dennis Flemion from Milwaukee. It’s Only Right And Natural was their second album, but when it was made, as a bunch of four track recordings, it was only meant for the ears of the brothers and close associates. Gerald Cosloy of Homestead Records (now of Matador) convinced the band to release it in 1991. Lyrically is plays with stereotypes, mainly of a homosexual nature, and it annoyed the heck of the Christian right in the US. It won the band a bunch of celebrity fans including Kurt Cobain, Billy Corgan and Beck, who sampled the song ‘I Don't Care If U Disrespect Me (Just So You Love Me)’ on ‘Where It’s At’ from Odelay.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds
Abattoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus

Ah, the unlucky thirteenth record. Always a hard one to make, although not so for Nick Cave, who chews up superstition and then spits it onto the ground and maybe writes a song about how pathetic it all is. 'Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus' is a knotty double record that takes on two different drummers for each side and was written over twelve days of presumably morose and terse recording -- that's how it sounds, anyway.

William Doyle
Your Wilderness Revisited

A former Mercury Prize nominee back when he used to record as East India Youth over five years ago, Bournemouth-based musician William Doyle returns with an album under his own name. Featuring a collaboration with none other than Brian Eno (‘Design Guide’), Your Wilderness Revisited is the formal return of a fine composer and songwriter.

The Fall
This Nation's Saving Grace

Beggar’s Banquet are launching the next phase of their Fall reissue campaign, hooray hooray! This Nation’s Saving Grace, an album by The Fall that almost everyone seems to agree is a classic slice of Fall: impressive, given how hard it is to get that fanbase to agree. Major level Fall, get involved.

Health&Beauty
Shame Engine / Blood Pleasure

Bringing back some of the musicians who’ve helped him bring his musical visions to life since the group’s establishment in the early Noughties, Brian J. Sulpizio releases his seventh Health&Beauty album Shame Engine / Blood Pleasure, which may his most sophisticated and rewarding yet.

My Life Story
World Citizen

Seven years on from their tentative reunion, anti-Britpop auteurs My Life Story deliver their fourth studio album after a 19-year gap. Fronted by the ever-acidic Jake Shillingford on vocals, always one of the Nineties’ most underrated lyricists, World Citizen was crowd-funded from their fanbase through PledgeMusic, and ought to pick up the thread from where they left off all that time ago. 

Iggy Pop
Free

Living legend Iggy Pop has been dogged by insecurity all his life. The process of making and touring his last album, 2016’s Post Pop Depression, helped him with this. He wanted to feel free, so he allowed that feeling to take over, and Free, his 19th solo album, developed from there. It is different in tone to its predecessor, finding Iggy in a pensive and solemn mood.

Brainiac
Hissing Prigs In Static Couture

With their career tragically cut short due to the death of vocalist/guitarist Tim Taylor in 1997, Brainiac’s third record (and first for seminal indie imprint Touch & Go) Hissing Prigs In Static Couture ended up being their valedictorian effort. Highly acclaimed for its intelligent, noisy take on contemporary indie, this ‘blue swirl’ vinyl re-issue is the perfect memento for this sadly unexplored dead-end in American alternative rock.

Bombay Bicycle Club
Everything Else Has Gone Wrong

Having built up a large and dedicated fanbase over the course of four excellent albums before their hiatus in 2014, the mighty Bombay Bicycle Club will finally break their silence with their fifth LP Everything Else Has Gone Wrong in January 2020. Frontman Jack Steadman says it’s “an album for anyone who’s ever turned to music in a time of need”. With things being the way they are, I think we could all do with that.

Courteeners
More. Again. Forever.

Although they’re as much maligned as they are worshipped, Courteeners are undoubtedly one of the very last of the old-fashioned Big British Guitar Bands. In January 2020, Liam Fray and his faithful lieutenants will release their sixth studio album, with the bold but ambiguous title More. Again. Forever. 

Feeder
Tallulah

Feeder are back! In their first new material since 2017s critically appraised 'Best Of' they return to cover the Go Betweens 1987 album it's entirety. Maybe not. Instead we get more of their punk-edged escapades where they blend American and British influences as if there was no water at all between the two places.

DZ Deathrays
Positive Rising: Part 1

'Positive Rising: Part 1' is the fourth studio album from Brisbane noisy rockers DZ Deathrays. Not that noisy mind, yes they can scream and shout but there's is quite a streamlined noise rock. 'Positive Rising' offers an altogether more rounded and bigger sound than 'Bloody Lovely', it quite obviously suggests a second part to come soon and a more ambitious future for the band.
