Thee Oh Sees
Carrion Crawler / The Dream

It's getting to be a bit tense in the office these days, for when a new Thee Oh Sees record comes in there's more than half of us clamouring to review it. That's known in the trade as a fan-boy tussle. Mike got the last one, Business Lady has reviewed more Dwyer & co records than sh...view item »

Thee Oh Sees
Floating Coffin

We have a dilemma here at Norman Towers this week - do we award our coveted Album of the Week trophy to The Knife’s ambitious and sprawling new 3LP masterpiece or this latest offering from Californian garage rock overlords Thee Oh Sees? The notoriously prolific ...view item »

Hot Snakes
Suicide Invoice

Next, please say hello to Hot Snakes who number John Reis (Rocket from the Crypt/Drive By Jehu) and Rick Froberg (Drive by Jehu) amongst their ranks. You know that style of American rawk where the drums are hit very hard and the guitars are played sideways but aggressively? Well this is i...view item »

Hot Snakes
Automatic Midnight

The concise opening double shot of "If Credit's What Matters I'll Take Credit" and the title track proves the band to be noise merchants of the highest order, with Froberg's fierce shout joined by a pummelling wall of guitars, pile-driving drums, and bass lines that sound like nukes going off. It doesn't let up from there, either: Automatic Midn...view item »

Hot Snakes
Audit In Progress

Man, few albums provide an immediate jolt like Hot Snakes' third album. For a rocking good time, this band is pretty tough to beat. Audit In Progress is aggressive, in-your-face, and extremely fun to listen to, coming off sort of like Nirvana with loads of swagger instead of self-conscious angst. While Hot Snakes' sound is loosely classifiable a...view item »

Slip Disc - Dishoom's London Bombay Grooves

Slip Disc - Dishoom’s London Bombay Grooves compiles some excellent sounds borne of the fruitful mingling of Indian culture with British culture in the 1960’s. It tends to be very interesting when cultures take a musical form and remake it in their image, and so it proves with Indian interpretations of swinging beat groups. ...view item »

The Temperance Movement
A Deeper Cut

A Deeper Cut is the third album by British blues rockers The Temperance Movement. It follows on from their 2012 self-titled debut and their 2016 album White Bear. Members of the band have previously played with the likes of Rooster, Ben’s Brother, Jamiroquai and Fe...view item »

Jimi Hendrix
People, Hell & Angels

This is utterly amazing and almost incomprehensible to me that we can have a brand new release of professional musicianship of this magnitude at this time of our existence in the broad spectrum of the world as we know it today! And this was recorded in the late 1960's with various musicians, including the original drummer of the experience Mitch...view item »

The Double
Dawn Of The Double

The Double (a duo featuring Emmett Kelly of Cairo Gang and Jim White of Dirty Three!) have identified Dawn Of The Double as a kind of twist to Rhys Chatham’s noisy minimal classic ‘Guitar Trio’: guitar and drums perpet...view item »

Neil Young + Promise Of The Real
The Visitor

For many years now, Neil’s M.O. has been to rush into the studio and unburden himself of whatever his latest preoccupation might be. Unsurprisingly, this time it involves the current occupant of the White House. Young’s always had a habit of proclaiming his US patriotism, but here at least, the title undercuts the irony of his status...view item »

Drive-By Truckers
Decoration Day

These southern rockers have a uniqueness about them that will separate fans from non-fans quickly. I found myself drawn to the lyrics, which are steeped in a self-loathing, 'white trashness' and are quite remarkable in their poetic capacity to tell a story. The singers drawl-laden vocals became not only tolerable, but a necessary component to th...view item »

Fu Manchu
Clone Of The Universe

Did you miss Fu Manchu? Well here they are, back again with their twelfth album after four years away. Clone Of The Universe is a fuzzed-up epic, particularly when it comes to the eighteen-minute goliath of a track that takes up all of side two. That track features none other than Alex Lifeson of ...view item »

The White Stripes
Icky Thump

Hey now the White Stripes with Icky Thump which I'm not allowed to open cos we're a bit skint and need to sell sell sell (they're all sealed so we don't want to open one up!). So I'll review it from the cover. They've got matching clothes (again). He'll be wanking away on his guitar feeling all self important and she'll be bashing away on her drums...view item »

The BellRays
Punk Funk Rock Soul, Vol. 2

You know the scene in Wayne’s World when Wayne and Garth go into the bar and Cassandra Wong’s band are playing? Well, The Bellrays sound quite a lot like that band (who, for the record, were called Crucial Taunt). Fusing hard-rock stylings with soulful vocals and banging choruses got CT a re...view item »

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
Extra Width

Jon Spencer's brand of funky alternative blues first caught my ear back in the early '90's and "Extra Width" from 1993 was the album that did it. It opens with "Afro" which is now typical of his best stuff - a great riff and a great groove. It also has a buzzsaw guitar solo. As far as visceral rock goes, it doesn't get much better. Jon Spencer i...view item »

Neil Young
Time Fades Away

Time Fades Away is a live album comprised of entirely new material. Originally released in 1973, it is one of Neil Young’s more obscure albums, possibly due to the fact that it has been unavailable for more than 30 years and was never released on CD. It was recorded on the tour to support Harvest,...view item »

Moon Duo
Jukebox Babe / No Fun

This twelve-inch sees the Portland psychedelicists tackling a pair of proto-punk classics. Alan Vega’s Jukebox Babe stands as a tribute to the late Suicide singer. While this version retains the rockabilly skeleton of the track, it’s as if the song has been transplanted from Vega’s gritty New Y...view item »

John Moore
Knickerbocker Glory

I don’t know what it is about that album cover, but I like it. Anyway, John Moore, the man who replaced Bobby Gillespie in Jesus & Mary Chain and formed Black Box Recorder with Luke Haines has a new solo album out called Knickerbocker Glory, hence the ...view item »


A much required vinyl pressing for what the press release calls 'one of the great psychedelic rock albums of all time'. Kaleidoscope emerged out of the West Coast of America in the late '60s with a drenched reverby sound that must have had influence on the Doors and later era line ups of Love...view item »

The Liminanas
Shadow People

Shadow People is the fifth album proper by Perpignan’s hazy psych-pop duo The Liminanas. Their sound is harks back to Serge Gainsbourg’s work with female vocalists such as Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin. Needless to say, then, that they exude cool. 180g vinyl L...view item »

Ben Miller Band
Choke Cherry Tree

Well we've already had the Steve Miller Band ('Abracadabra' et al) but this is something new. It's the Ben Miller Band  - a totally different thing. They make a kind of sprawling Americana with washboard bass and slide guitar alongside cello and four part harmonies. This is the first record to feature new member Smilin' Bob...view item »

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion
Now I Got Worry

In 1974, blues legend Albert King told us what the blues is all about. Since the early ’90s Jon Spencer has reinforced the sentiment using screams, Theremins, two guitars, drums, no bass guitar, Judah Bauer and Russell Simins in sensational fashion - arguably most sensationally of all with his 1996 album “Now I Got Worry”. ...view item »

The Liminanas
The Woods / The Inventor

Melding sugar-sweet vintage pop with sun-bleached psych, The Liminanas beam their utopian brand no better than on their The Woods / The Inventor release. Formed by Lio and Marie Liminana, the two-track pressing offers Django Django-esque outback guitars and the odd stark, h...view item »

Endless Boogie
Full House Head

This is kind of a weird one. On the one hand it's quite easy to sum up as the band have already done an excellent job of it by calling themselves Endless Boogie but on the other it kinda feels like a bit of a mixed bag quality-wise. I'm spending a fair portion of it quite enjoying their extended Magic Band-esque good-time country/blues/rock jams...view item »

Fleetwood Mac
Fleetwood Mac

Reissue of Fleetwood Mac’s classic eponymous 1975 album, the first they released with their most iconic line-up, and which laid the foundations for their world-beating future. The album is available on CD, deluxe CD, and in a very deluxe box set featuring alternate takes, live recordings, and a surround and stereo mix....view item »

The Galileo 7
Tear Your Minds Wide Open!

Allan Crockford shows off his songwriting chops on Kent band The Galileo 7's fifth album, a rollicking psych-pop record packed to the rafters with stormy guitars, body-rocking bass and tongue-in-cheek lyrics. Recorded live to tape, you can hear just how tight the foursome’s harmonies are, unfettered by production wizardry....view item »

Withered Hand
Stay Golden

Triassic Tusk are trying something a little new for their new 7” series. Each release features an original song, and a cover of a song by the next artist in the series. So in this case you have Stay Golden by Withered Hand and his cover of Jo Foster’s Plenty Courage. Withere...view item »

Kick Out The Jams

Kick Out The Jams was MC5's first album. It was recorded live in front of a large audience in October 1968 in Detroit. Though the band claimed it was a recorded document of "the revolution" they were right, not in the meaning they intended, however. It did revolutionise American rocknroll and music forever. They manage to infuse the same kind of...view item »

Ceremony and Devotion

Recorded during the Popestar tour during the summer of 2017, this is Ghost's Ceremony and Devotion. Apparently the record that follows the band into becoming one of the biggest arena bands in the world. Available on double vinyl LP and CD on Spinefarm. The 2LP comes housed in a gatefold sleeve and contains a 20-page boo...view item »

The White Stripes
There's No Home For You Here / I Fought Piranhas

The White Stripes invite you to remember a time when they released killer singles and existed as a band and whatnot; that time had something to do with an Elephant, if I recall, and "There's No Home For You Here" is invited along in the crew of 7"s that seeks to canonize their best moment. Comes with a b-side known...view item »

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Holy Mountain

The new album from Noel Gallagher’s current project High Flying Birds, Who Built The Moon?, is out now, and here to accompany it is this natty Maxi single. Holy Mountain is a storming track featuring Paul Weller on the old organ, and this release adds an instrumental vers...view item »

Jim White
Waffles, Triangles & Jesus

This is his sixth studio album and is finely produced, journeying across the vast American continent. I’m not sure if that is a place I wish to visit these days, but Jim White makes it feel magical, heartwarming and limitless, helped in turns by his hometown (Athens) finest musicians, plus Dead Rock West and Holly Golightly...view item »

Spice Boys

Did it really take this many years for somebody to think of the band name ‘Spice Boys’? The answer is no. There are many of them. This is one of the latest, formed in Sweden in 2015. Their music doesn’t resemble the Spice Girls’ style ...view item »

Sonny Smith
Rod For Your Love

He deserves to recline on his sofa-shaped car, does Sonny Smith: this is his tenth studio album, and if that's not cause for celebration, what is? Rod For Your Love draws on old-school country rock and employs big, communally yelled melodies to share its portion of sunshine with you. Rockin' and rollin' a...view item »

The Replacements

Hootenanny was the second album by Minneapolis band The Replacements. It was originally released in 1983. The album is notable for singer and guitarist Paul Westerberg swapping instrumental duties with drummer Chris Mars and Tommy and Bob Stinson swapping bass and guitar duties. It also included a ...view item »

The Pretty Things
Greatest Hits

The Pretty Things have evolved through several genres of music since the British R&B of their early ‘60s releases. This even included a stab at New Wave in the early ‘80s. Their most notable foray was into psychedelic rock, however, with the 1968 psych-rock opera SF Sorrow. The ban...view item »

The Black Keys

Back in the early 2000s the Black Keys did a bit of mouthing off in the direction of The White Stripes suggesting that Jack White didn't know what real Blues was and seemed to set a course of showing him exactly how it's done. The early Black Keys music is no better than the White Stripes, I'm a fan of bot...view item »

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Rust Never Sleeps

Classic Album Alert! Famously Canadian singer-songwriter guy -- that has a great voice and is actually very good -- Neil Young sees an album that he did in '79 with raucous band Crazy Horse reissued on pristine 180g vinyl. For the most part recorded live, with a few studio overdubs, it's an energetic and dynamic...view item »


I'm still yet to hear Death's only official release '…For The Whole World To See' but on the strength of this collection of ra reties and demo's I reckon it's got to be top of my 'albums to listen to as soon as i get home' list. Death were a short lived pre-punk Detroit rock'n'roll band consisting of three brothers who liked to 'Kick Out ...view item »

Dinner Party
Too Live To Die

Jimi Hendrix
Experience Hendrix: The Best Of Jimi Hendrix

Which is the best Jimi Hendrix album? Probably this one as it contains all the best of his songs including 'Crosstown Traffic', 'All Along the Watchtower' and 'Foxy Lady'. Anyway if you are new to the guitar maestro then this would be a good place to start. They've spread it across a double album too.   ...view item »

The Cult
Choice of Weapon

One thing for sure is that The Cult never make the same album twice. If you go through their stuff you will find that each album sounds quite different to the one that preceded it in terms of style and overall sound. This can make it a little hard at first to really get into whatever their latest offering is because it's never what you expect, r...view item »

The Beatles

Revolver by The Beatles is regarded by many as their best album. It’s the second album they made after giving up playing live and the use of studio trickery really began to enhance their concise pop. Originally released in 1966, it’s fair to say that this changed the shape of everything that came after...view item »

Wolf People
Silbury Sands / Dry

Wolf People recorded these recent jams in a 17th Century Welsh mansion which is a pretty fucking spawny situation to land yourself in. Proper jealousy levels. I'm lucky if I can get the soundcard in my laptop to work in my kitchen. Anyway, jealousy aside this is a cool single. Now, I've noticed these lads have been selling a fair few LP's here a...view item »

International Vicious Society Vol. 4

The International Vicious Society compilations achieved that powerful double-whammy of being extremely good and rather rare, which makes the University of Vice’s reissues very welcome. The album compiles international 50’s / 60’s dance music with a novelty twist. Limited edition of 500 vinyl copies!...view item »

The Sonics
Live At Easy Street

In 2015, garage legends The Sonics released their first studio album in five straight decades! They also spent Record Store Day 2015 performing a live set to a capacity crowd at Seattle’s Easy Street Records, and it sounds like it really went off that day! Live At Easy Street is a crisp and clear document of a rem...view item »

In The Devil's Focus

Billy Childish and pals did sessions for both Marc Riley and Gideon Coe on BBC 6 Music in July. This 10” collects both. These 10 tracks betray a new-found interest in the possibilities of granular synthesis… nah, you know exactly what to expect! Hashtag rocknroll, hashtag 77. Only 8...view item »

What About Brian (Alt. Version) / The Fields In Mist

Billy Childish's current crew with an alternate version of a track from their fifth album, Brand New Cage.

Ty Segall / Black Time

Originally released in 2009, ‘Split’ LP by Ty Segall (Fuzz, Sic Alps) and UK trash garage rock band Black Time is often referenced as being one of Ty Segall’s best early records. The juxtaposition of Segall’s Californian, reverb heavy groves and the chaotic, disorienting ruckus that is Black Times’ contribution make...view item »

The Fame-Beats
Don't Tell No Lies / The Watford Stomp

Aussie rockers The Fame-Beats are here with their debut release ‘Don’t Tell No Lies’, a lilting beat-inspired homage to mid-century British pop, courtesy of Wick Records. But the kicker here is ‘The Watford Stomp’, a rollicking party-starter that wouldn’t sound out of place on an early Beatles...view item »

The Monkees
Good Times!

Hey hey they’re the Monkees! And weirdly enough, this ain’t no reissue: Good Times! is a brand new studio record from the classic 60’s pop boys. The tracklisting is star-studded with guest writers, from Rivers Cuomo to Noel Gallagher to Paul Weller, pl...view item »

Neil Young
Harvest Moon

Ah Harvest Moon. Like Bat out Hell 2, it's a key example of how an artist going back to an original blueprint can reap dividends. On Harvest Moon Neil Young captured the vibe of his original Harvest album, with a series of beautifully evocative acoustic songs including utterly essential closer Natural ...view item »

Wild Evel and the Trashbones
Digging My Grave

Wild Evel and the Trashbones are a knockabout good-times garage-punk gang from Austria, with lots of lessons learned from both the original 60’s garage rockers and Billy Childish’s trash aesthetic revitalisations. Digging My Grave is a driving messy fuzzy torrent of leathery guitar action, r...view item »

Time Frames

Razz are led by ex-Pets guitarist Dan Wood whose guitar and songwriting skills revive a classic new wave sound making it relevant for today.

Table Scraps
Sick of Me

Brummie garage punks Table Scraps follow a slew of cracking singles and an LP with a new 7”. Sick Of Me continues in their tradition on self-produced, self-styled, reverb-soaked garage rock. The band have notably been picked to support legendary punk acts The Stranglers and Buzzcocks. On Z...view item »

The White Stripes
Get Behind Me Satan

Get Behind Me Satan was the fifth album by The White Stripes. It was originally released in 2005.

Manic Street Preachers
Generation Terrorists

Released in 1992, the Manics proclaimed that they thought their debut album would sell 16 million copies in a blaze of shameless self-promotion and controversy-courting. While the album was well-hyped, it didn't quite hit those sales, but it did come through on some of their early promise shown on the New Art Riot EP and their single "Motown Jun...view item »

Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys

Two steps ahead of anyone hoping to insult them with a jeering nickname since 2009, Sydney’s Bed Wettin’ Bad Boys return to peddle their rather raucous, slightly punkish and unapologetically dated rock & roll. Rot is their second LP, released on LP/CD by their own label R.I.P. Society and brims with filt...view item »

The White Stripes
Fell In Love With A Girl

Paul and Linda McCartney

Paul McCartney
McCartney II

Lazy Bones

'Lazy Bones!!', the third record by Zambian garage rockers Witch, trawls through rollicking guitar riffs (with plenty of fuzz action), avid drum fills and sublime vocal harmonies, creating a sound that's joyous and communal whatever genre it ends up slinking into (be it their preference for funk or psych rock). It's being reissued by Now-Ag...view item »

The She's
"all female rock and roll quartet"

The She’s present their most snarkily-titled album yet in the form of all female rock and roll quartet, neatly skewering precisely the kind of lazy musical writing we try to avoid. This is the band’s second album, and it is packed with both raw energy and direct lyrics on the one hand and carefully-assembled...view item »

Warfaring Strangers: Acid Nightmares

Warfaring Strangers: Acid Nightmares is a compilation of what happened when the 60’s drug dream started to turn dark and demented: rock bands started losing it maaaan, and the good vibes turned heavy. For the listener of course, that means all manner of weird and gnarly fuzz-psych trippiness, and Numero Group have done an excellen...view item »

Introduction to Escape-ism

Like Jon Spencer, Ian Svenonius is one of the hardest working men in contemporary rock 'n' roll. Over the years he's amassed an awesome discography with The Nation Of Ulysses The Make-Up, Chain & the Gang, XYZ, Weird War etc. but hasn't stepped out on his own. Until Now. Here he is, but naked and armed with a guitar, drum box and casset...view item »

Chain & The Gang
Live at Third Man Records

This is the first live document of Chain and the Gang the latest product of the world's most entertaining front man Ian Svenonius (Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up etc).

Fox Face
Spoil + Destroy

Fox Face are Milwaukee’s best feminist punk outfit, applying lots of riot grrrl ferocity along with a bit of old-school heavy riff’n’chug, and even some brighter surfy sections.

Bash & Pop
Anything Could Happen

Stinson may have played a relatively background role in the Replacements all those years ago, but listening to this fine album it sounds like he has really matured as a songwriter, refining and honing his own songwriting chops. The songs perhaps aren't as introspective as found on some of Westerberg's recent releases, but the "ear" for writing m...view item »

The Future Ain't What It Used To Be

Biters are a band who go full vintage in their evocation of punkish (but also somewhat glam) 70’s rock, as re-imagined by a group with access to a modern digital studio and a fondness for anthemic choruses. The Future Ain’t What It Used To Be is released by Earache, with signed editions available while stock...view item »

Troubled Horse
Revolution On Repeat

Trouble Horse are a ‘proper’ old heavy metal / hard rock outfit from Sweden, doing the thing they love in correct style. With tracks like ‘My Shit’s Fucked Up’ and ‘Let Bastards Know’ (er, and ‘Track7’), they aren’t fucking about here: Revolution On Repeat will...view item »

Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell

Simply said, Admiral Sir Cloudesley Shovell don’t give a damn, they just wanna play, drink, and stick loud music in your face. Hasting’s answer to Motorhead are crass and boisterous.

Queens Of The Stone Age
...Like Clockwork

I’ve a bit of a soft spot for these Californian rockers. ‘...Like Clockwork’ is their sixth studio album on Matador as they appear to have parted company with Interscope. There’s some decent tunes on here, certainly radio friendly such as obvious single ‘My God Is The Sun’. T...view item »

The Black Keys
El Camino

If Brothers seemed like an unexpected win for the duo of Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney, then the follow up album, El Camino, seems desperate to argue that their time in the spotlight isn't over. Where Brothers was an expansive trip through many of the Black Keys's outer stylistic influences, El Camino is a tightly structured album designed to ...view item »
