Stereolab
Aluminum Tunes

This is the third in the series of three Stereolab singles compilations that have now been re-issued on clear vinyl LPs. It covers the years 1995-1998 and rounds up all the EPs and split singles and compilations the band produced. They were very prolific indeed and also ahead of the time. Everyone does kraut-pop now but Stereola...view item »


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 de...view item »


Mr Bungle
Disco Volante

Disco Volante is the second studio album by American experimental Rock band Mr. Bungle. Released in 1995, it is considered by many to be the most experimental of all their albums, picking up inspiration from a wide variety of musical styles including Death Metal, Techno, ‘50s space age Pop, musique concrète and Italian avant-garde....view item »


Tommy Guerrero
A Little Bit Of Somethin'

What a beautiful little release. The album art pretty much sums up the sound on the LP, so as you can imagine, the tracks are mellow and guitar-y. A Little Bit Of Somethin' by Tommy Guerrero has been reissued on vinyl LP on Be With Records and would be a nice addition to the chilled out part of your record collection. ...view item »


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 b...view item »

Rymixes



Julian Lynch
Rat's Spit

Rat’s Spit is the new album from Real Estate guitarist and Norman Records favourite, Julian Lynch. His music generally sounds like a slightly weirder, less pop, more fractured version of his parent band, but is certainly not lacking in quality. It’s his 7th album, but first since 2013’s Lines. ...view item »


Stereolab
Peng!

Peng! Was the debut album by Stereolab. It was originally released in 1992. It featured all the hallmarks of their sound which was driven by rhythm guitar, vintage keyboards, a motorik beat and Laetitia Sadier’s part-Nico-part-ethereal vocals. They were influenced as much by the sunshine pop of The Free Design as the were ...view item »


Low
C'mon

Low are one of those bands that very often seem to do no wrong and even when they do misfire everyone seems to be so happy to have them around that they get away with it. Following on from Robert Plant covering a couple of their tunes on his last album, there certainly seems to be a bigger push around Low this time. Whereas their previous long p...view item »


This Mortal Coil
It'll End In Tears

Oh lord this is the album. Back in the 80's no-one had any time for the likes of Big Star or Tim Buckley. 4AD head honcho was different though. He had exquisite taste and was also ambitious enough to put together a floating member super group to re-interpret some of his favourite songs. It Will End In T...view item »


The Mistys
Pregnant Mannequin

Boomkat really know how to big up their own releases in a way we don't . Their description of this, the second album from the Mistys uses all the phrases we're growing to know and love of late...'tape worn' for example. Certainly saccharine shoegaze/dreampop album recorded to a salvaged D90 tape that's about to disintegrate&...view item »


This Mortal Coil
Blood

Blood was the third and final This Mortal Coil album and like it's predecessor Filagree and Shadow, was presented as a double album. Once again large swathes of the 4AD roster were involved and the album has several highlights that compare favourably with their earlier work. There are two Chris Bell (Bi...view item »


Have A Nice Life
Deathconsciousness

Enemies List first released 'Deathconsciousness', the project of home recording duo Have a Nice Life (Dan Barrett and Tim Macuga), in 2008. You can't sum this thing up in one genre description alone: it takes on torrid post-punk, Sunn O))) stylised drone, Stars of the Lid-esque ambient, industrial, shoegaze and doom metal, uniting them...view item »


Kinski
Be Gentle With The Warm Turtle



Tortoise
It's All Around You

Right reviews then.... Tortoise... 1st new album in god knows how many years. Wasn't sure what to expect of this cos I used to love Tortoise but over the years have got a little bored of 'em.... This is a surprisingly enjoyable listen. I guess it's got the jazzy elements which you'd expect and the big percu...view item »


Mogwai
Zidane

Sooooo if you didn't know there's a film coming out about Zidane. If you're from another planet then you won't know he's an insanely talented French footballer who's feet are made of silk and magic. He's also rather famous for smacking that Italian dude in the world cup final with his big clever football filled monkhead. Golden TV moments eh....view item »


BEAK>
Sex Music

Here they come again those BEAK> boys. Here the threesome tease a track from their upcoming full length with four minutes of slinking grooves, kraut like pulsating drums and squiggly synths. Not only that but they have drafted in Win Butler the very tall leader from Arcade Fire to do a remix which you'll find...view item »

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 sis...view item »


Cigarettes After Sex
Affection

Cigarettes After Sex have made a big splash in 2017. Despite the dodgy name, the music is great. Affection, the El Paso, Texas band’s debut single, finally gets a physical release on 7” after previously only being available as a download. Buy this and discover where it all began for the ambient pop maestros....view item »


This Mortal Coil
Filigree and Shadow

Filagree and Shadow was the follow up to the much loved debut It Will End In Tears from shadowy 4AD collective This Mortal Coil. Again leader Ivo Watts-Russell chose a supergroup made out of (mostly) artists on his label but this time there were more self penned compositions, enough to make it into a double alb...view item »


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 &l...view item »


Stereolab
Refried Ectoplasm (Switched On Vol. 2)

2LP clear vinyl re-press of this compilation of early singles and rarities from the now pretty legendary kraut poppers. The compilation charts the bands growth in their early years and contains some of their classic recordings such 'French Disko' 'John Cage Bubblegum' and 'La Boob Oscillator'. Ha! I said 'boob'. ...view item »


Mice Parade
Focus on the Roller Coaster

Here we are again, as happy as can be. Clint here with the first batch. Standing head and shoulders above everything else this week is the new 7" from Mice Parade on Fat Cat.  This is the most  fantastic blast of pop I've heard in a while. Yep pop I say  - it has vocals, a tune, brillian...view item »


For Against
Mason’s California Lunchroom

Mason’s California Lunchroom was For Against’s second album for the Rainbow Quartz label, their fourth album in all. It was originally released in 1995. The band, who hail from Lincoln, Nabraska, moulded their darkwave sound through being influenced by a lot of independent British music that was around in the early &...view item »


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....view item »


Stereolab
The Groop Played Space Age Batchelor Pad Music

Stereolab followed their 1992 debut album, Peng!, with The Groop Played Space Age Bachelor Pad Music, a mini album in 1993. The title strangely seems to give a name to the music Stereolab played. Their influences came from far and wide, but were always cool and occasionally a little bit obscure - ...view item »


Mogwai
Party In The Dark

Hurling melodic post-punk together with space-rock expansiveness, Party In The Dark is the second track to be lifted from Mogwai’s forthcoming album ‘Every Country’s Sun’. The 7” is backed with ‘Eternal Panther&rsq...view item »


The Telescopes
Exploding Head Syndrome

Exploding Head Syndrome is the 10th album by psych/space rock band The Telescopes. The band formed in 1987 and there has been a revolving cast of players, with Stephen Lawrie being the only constant member in all that time. He really is Mr. Telescope. They take their influences from bands such as 13th Floor Elevators...view item »


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 grun...view item »


Drab Majesty
The Demonstration

As Drab Majesty Deb Demure takes the hazy and glamorous atmospherics of 1980s synth pop, but ties it to something darker, weirder and more experimental. The Demonstration, on vinyl LP and CD from DAIS, takes this combination even further, with heavy industrial elements, fingerpicked guitar and l...view item »


Deerhoof
Reveille

This is my favourite Deerhoof. It's so good that i almost seems like it doesn't actually exist. Question. Can something this good really exist? Yes it does on vinyl and CD. Reveille is the sounds of the Blues Explosions crossed with Stereolab and some insane Japanese warblings. This is just the bestest thin...view item »


Cocteau Twins
Treasure Hiding: The Fontana Years

Prototypical shoegazers and dreampoppers extraordinaire Cocteau Twins are ever-relevant in today's shoegaze revival. This 4 CD box-set contains remastered versions (approved by Robin Guthrie himself) of the band's last two albums: 1991’s Four Calendar Cafe and 1996’s Milk & Kisses. Also included...view item »


Bark Psychosis
Codename: Dustsucker

Following on from the re-issue of their classic 'Hex' here is a re-press of their much overlooked follow up 'Codename: Dustsucker'. Though at this point Bark Psychosis were really just frontman Graham Sutton this is a strong follow up retaining the same eerie late night atmospheres and adding in more obvious hints of shoegaze. ...view item »


Disco Inferno
The 5 Eps

I'm not one for looking back usually. Neither were Disco Inferno. They were the true futurists of the 1990's, a band so forward thinking that it is rumoured that Rough Trade kept funding their releases despite a shocking lack of sales as they were convinced that they were to be the 'Ca...view item »


Sonic Youth
Washing Machine

A return to in-print and on-vinyl status for a few Sonic Youth albums. 1995’s Washing Machine contains examples of the band in weirded 60’s girl-group mode (‘Little Trouble Girl’), as well as ‘The Diamond Sea’, the only 20+ minute, whole-side noise jams ever to make it to a ‘pro...view item »


Broadcast
Ha Ha Sound

From the opposite end of the quality spectrum saunter Brummie krautrock 60's waltz gods BROADCAST with a new full lengther. Yes, that's BROADCAST. So good they have their name in big letters. Warp's best signing of the 90's bar ...view item »


Atlas sound
Parallax

Ryan Adams recently commented that he felt his career had been derailed by the sheer number of records he shoved out.  People couldn't keep up and so lost interest. Some may argue that many of them were terrible and that Adams has often behaved like an egotistical clown but he has a p...view item »


Carla dal Forno
The Garden

Following on from her excellent LP of sonic gothic architecture for Blackest Ever Black, Carla dal Forno returns with a 12" of dubby introspections. Haunted hallways and sonorous drone pop are to be expected on this You Know What It's Like sequel, with a song tributing the great industrial weirdings ...view item »


This Will Destroy You
New Others Part Two

They may have promised that This Will Destroy You in 2005, but it's now thirteen years on and we’re still standing. Joke’s on them! New Others Part Two, the LA band’s sixth LP, arrives hot on the heels of September’s Part One. It’s another collection of inventive post-rock that shi...view item »


The Declining Winter
Belmont Slope

No one evokes the emotional atmospheres of the North quite like Richard Adams, so thank god he's made Belmont Slope, a musical fable about the M62. Mysterious and muffled, he returns with his Declining Winter moniker to detail further secrets hiding in the Yorkshire soil. If it's anything l...view item »


Stereolab
Switched On

Way early (1992) compilation release of even earlier Stereolab material: in fact, this is the very earliest Stereolab material there is. Switched On compiles the Super 45 EP, the Super-Electric EP, and the Stunning Debut Album 7”, and for all those rarities this is a pre...view item »


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 ...view item »


Bill Callahan
Woke Up On A Whaleheart

I still don't know why Bill Callahan dropped the Smog alias to record under his own name. At the time, before this came out I assumed it must be to mark a change in direction for him. That doesn't seem to be the case however. "Woke On A Whaleheart" is just another Smog album, really. You could point to songs like "Foot...view item »


JAWS
The Ceiling

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....view item »


Big Black
Atomizer

Atomizer was the very first full-length album released by Steve Albini’s original group, Big Black. The band arrived fully formed, with trademark violent lyrics and violent production, grinding and growling vigorously along. Contains their particularly classic track ‘Kerosene’. The rei...view item »

Oakland, California artist Miserable (Kristina Esfandiari, also vocalist for King Woman) is back with a new album Loverboy / Dog Days, a combination of one reissued EP and one newun. The latter had to be...view item »


CHAI
PINK

London’s Heavenly Recordings reissue a long overdue j-pop classic by four-piece kawaii-overloaders CHAI. PINK was first released as long ago as February 2018 by Burger Records, so it’s great to see it available once again, uh, on this side of the pond. The band’s brief, energetic songs explore pop cult...view item »

British post-rocker yellow6 (Jon Attwood) gets into the festive spirit with merry6mas2018. Usually with Christmas albums you get at least some nod to the holidays. Not ...view item »


epic45
Drakelow EP

This was a bit of a milestone in the E45 back catalogue as it centred greatly on their instrumental electronica constructing capabilities and much less on the chiming pastoral post-rock they won their fan-base with. I'd say if you like drone, glitch, minimal composition and ambient electronic styles this will...view item »

Lena Hessels
Billow

Lena Hessels is the daughter of Terrie Hessels, guitarist with Dutch anarcho-punk band The Ex. She was born in 2000, which makes her a youngster, but a youngster who knows bands such as Sonic Youth and Konono No.1 from the times t...view item »


Bipolar Explorer
Sometimes In Dreams

Bipolar Explorer is the cheerily-named project of NYC dynamic duo Summer Serafin and Michael Serafin-Wells. As ever on Slugg Records, Sometimes in Dreams is their seventh album - and they made this one a double. The pair specialise in shoegazy dream-rock, blending sung lyrics with poetr...view item »


Tortoise/ The Ex
In The Fishtank



Sonic Youth
NYC Ghosts & Flowers

Reissue of Sonic Youth’s 2000 album NYC Ghosts & Flowers. Scene leaders of no wave and noise rock in NY since beginning in 1981, they had all of their equipment nicked whilst on tour in 1999 so were forced to write without their usual modified guitars and effects. The results are quite profoun...view item »


Disco Inferno
D. I. Go Pop

Ah right then, you are asking me to write an impartial product description on this album? Not going to happen. What we have is one of the most forward thinking records of the '90s. A place where Joy Division, Public Enemy, MBV and Young Gods collide to create a barrage of fury a...view item »


Snapped Ankles
Stunning Luxury

Following on from their rather good Come Play the Trees album, London avant groove-sters Snapped Ankles are back with an album that appears to be a concept album about the property industry. A record to soundtrack the constant threat of developers perhaps but these are fun guys with many moments of memorable scuzz under...view item »


Perfect Body / Zac White
Fields / Spent On You

Cardiff’s Bubblewrap Collective brings you Cardiff’s Perfect Body and Cardiff’s Zac White with split EP Fields / Spent On You. Wafting up out of the Welsh city’s underground like some rockin’ spectre, Perfect Body strums out a mist of shoegazy psych-rock, while wee White, b...view item »


XXL (Xiu Xiu / Larsen)
Puff O'Gigio

XXL sees the experimentation of american band Xiu Xiu meet the experimentation of Italians Larsen. If you like your music weird, then Puff O’Gigio is probably for you. The title is taken from a a mythological, genetically modified character - a cross between a Belgian creature the siz...view item »


North Atlantic Drift
Departures, Vol. 2

Ooh look, it's another lovely card-and-envelope-bound release from Sound In Silence this time from North Atlantic Drift. Can Departures, Vol. 2 really be Mike Abercrombie and Brad Deschamps' sixth full-length album? Apparently it is so. Edging away from their erstwhile post-rock melodicisms, the duo have made a pared-do...view item »

The Physics House Band

Thomas Bush
Old and Red

Thomas Bush hails from the West Midlands. Old and Red is a synth-led work with skittering electronic percussion - like a more experimental version of The Magnetic Fields. There are also contemplative moments that clearly have the influence of Japan and David Sylvian stamped on t...view item »


SRSQ
Unreality

Unreality is a phoenix from the flames. SRSQ is the solo project of Them Are Us Too’s Kennedy Ashlyn - the same Them Are Us Too who lost collaborator and dear friend Cash Askew in the 2016 Ghost Ship Fire. This LP is the sound of Ashlyn coming to terms with the grief. Sonically th...view item »


The Telescopes
Early Studio Recordings

Telescopic noisegazers The Telescopes are best known these days for steadily releasing ear-splitting beauties ever since breaking a decade’s silence in 2002. So just in case you’d forgotten that they have numerous releases from before then, here’s Early Studio Recordings, where you’ll fin...view item »


Sonic Youth
Sonic Nurse

After 1995’s “Washing Machine” I thought that Sonic Youth went through a rather mediocre period and “Sonic Nurse”, released in 2004 marked a return to form, in my mind. Retrospective action made me reconsider 2002’s “Murray Street”, however. The album’s opener, “Pattern Recognit...view item »


Death and Vanilla
Vampyr

A prime slice of hauntology to get your teeth into here. Originally released on cassette last Halloween, this double LP features a live recording of Death And Vanilla’s soundtrack to Danish filmmaker Carl Theodor Dreyer’s 1932 classic ,Vampyr. For the performance, the psychedelic dream pop duo expanded their line up, incorporating an...view item »


Lorelle Meets The Obsolete
De Facto

This is the fifth album from Mexican duo Lorelle Meets The Obsolete which they claim will make your head go POW! I'm looking forward to that happening and maybe it will as they suggest that it's a cross between Low's recent experimentation and Tender Buttons era Broadcast. Hopefully tha...view item »


Rattle
Sequence

It's hard to imagine a band that using just drums and vocals would be an effective entity but Rattle sort of works. They consist of two drummers,  Katharine Eira Brown and Theresa Wrigley, who weave a percussive spell adding dual vocals along the way. This follow up to their well received self titled debut explores this ter...view item »


Winterlight
The Longest Sleep Through The Darkest Days

Plymouth shoegaze/electronic poppers Winterlight are keeping it in the family with their latest album which sees leader Tim Ingham's daughter Isabel taking over on bass duties. Cute. They've taken seven years over this faffing with all kinds of sounds before realising if it ain't broke don't fix it. Smart. ...view item »


Echo Ladies
Overrated (Robin Guthrie Version) / Rebel Rebel

Echo Ladies made an ok album earlier in the year and now the Swedish shoegaze trio have had the ultimate stamp of approval from former Cocteau Twins guitar whizz Robin Guthrie.  He's remixed their track Overrated to sterling affect and over on the flip is something wholly unexpected - a cov...view item »


Dead Can Dance
Dionysus

Neo-hippy and alternative stoner sweethearts Dead Can Dance are finally back with their first new album in six years.

One Time For All Time

65 Days of Static... brand new CD called One Time For All Time on Monotreme records. You'll be pleased to know that those who bought the last album (and there are 1000's of you....) the new album is more of the same. To be honest if you played the 2 together I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. So electronics and rock combi...view item »


Jambinai
A Hermitage

Strange one this from the normally safe-as-houses Bella Union. Jambinai are a South Korean trio who marry post rock dynamics with Korean folk roots using a mixture of exotic stringed things. They create droning mantra's that explode into shards of noise that is certainly not for the faint hearted but is already finding fans in o...view item »


For Against
Shelf Life

Pioneering darkwave/post-punk band, For Against, have been plying their trade on-and-off since 1984. Shelf Life was their 5th album and was originally released in 1997. They take their influences from early 4AD and Factory bands which was odd for a band from midwest USA at the time. Reissue LP and digipak CD on Saint Marie....view item »


Low
The Invisible Way

There is no such thing as a bad Low album, just good, very good and mediocre. Their last effort ‘C’mon‘ had a few killer songs but also a fair few forgettable ones. It seems since the wild experimentation of the very good ‘Drums and Guns’ they have retreated into a safe Low-shaped ho...view item »

Tangents
New Bodies

Aussie five-piece Tangents are purveyors of a similar kind of jazzy, instrumental post-rock to Tortoise; there are similarities with Four Tet’s electronic plunges into these styles as well. On New Bodies they are comfortable shifting between the lot within one tune - all the way t...view item »


Dead Can Dance
The Serpents Egg

A reissue of the inimitable Dead Can Dance’s 4th studio album The Serpent’s Eggs. Their first album that was entirely recorded in their own studio, giving them complete freedom to create their unique blend of ethereal middle eastern tones, African rhythms and 80s experimentalism. One of 4AD’s biggest a...view item »

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven

Godspeed You! Black Emperor’s excellent second album, first released back in 2000. Awing in its scope and ambition, and uniquely optimistic and joyful within the band’s discography. I’ll never forget when I first heard the trumpets creeping in during ‘Storm’, or on ‘Sleep’ where a New Yo...view item »


Explosions In The Sky
Those Who Tell The Truth

The Explosions In The Sky LP that came out last week was fantastic. It's a massive grower and have since come to the conclusion that it's a work of genius. If you like Slint, Shellac, Godspeed and Mogwai then you'll will love this. It sounds like Mogwai most of all with the big sou...view item »


Cocteau Twins
Heaven Or Las Vegas

‘Heaven Or Las Vegas’ was originally released in 1990 and was to become the bands most commercially successful release, reaching Number 7 in the UK Album Charts. Numerous publications have since declared it one of the best albums of the 90s, with Pitchfork calling it “a core of ungodly gorgeous songs that is every bit as m...view item »


Sigur Rós
Ágætis byrjun

The album that catapulted Sigur Ros from the obscurity of 'Von' into international stardom, world tours, BBC tie ins and a string of hugely successful albums.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
F♯ A♯ ∞

Oooh, now this is a special one… F#A#∞ is the first ever album released by formative post-rock legends Godspeed You! Black Emperor, dating from 1997. The vinyl comes packaged with a coin flattened by being left on a Montreal train track (yes really) and various other trinkets, which adds to th...view item »


Lightning Bolt
Fantasy Empire

Blasting through speakers for over twenty years, Lightning Bolt is a force to be reckoned with. Renowned for their aggressive and noisy approach to music and performances, they have made a name for themselves as unpredictable and relentless. Fantasy Empire is their eighth full length release and we are excited. And scar...view item »


Radiohead
The King Of Limbs

Who the hell are these weird bastards? I've obviously no eye for art as I love the sleeve for this album - some sort of amorphous jellyfish ghosts in some psychedelic woodland setting. But everyone else here thinks it sucks. 'TKOL' has divided opinion like every Radiohead album does. It's not experimental enough for the chin strokers & is a ...view item »


SWANS
My Father Will Guide Me Up A Rope To The Sky

The almighty Swans are back with a new album! Their last studio album was in 1996 and in 1997 they quietly disbanded. Since then it'd all been quiet on the old Swans front. Mr. Gira has been busy with a bunch of solo releases, 5 Angels Of Light albums (which are all astoundingly good) and of course he's been running Young God Records with a...view item »


Slint
Spiderland

Spiderland by Slint is post-rock ground zero. It was the band’s second and final album, but it’s THE ONE when it comes to defining a sub-genre. The band featured Brian McMahan who went on to play with Will Oldham and then form The For Carnation...view item »


Mogwai
Happy Songs For Happy People

Post rock monsters Mogwai return with a new album. I think this is their best effort for quite awhile The first track is just amazing with guitars chiming like church bells. They always hit the obligatory 'noisy bit' where sometimes you wish they'd keep quiet and explore different textures but... oh we...view item »


Mogwai
Mr Beast

Blimey! Jocks Mogwai seem to be doing well for themselves, I seen them on telly the other week. I think they're a good example of how an independent artist can become successful and leap out of the underground without selling out and compromising their sound. The wait is over for the 'Mr Beast' album after the 'Friend of The Night' sing...view item »


Sonic Youth
A Thousand Leaves

Along with Washing Machine, A Thousand Leaves is a clear indication that Sonic Youth have transcended the barriers of punk, noise, avant-garde, etc. and have become coincident with the core of modern music and modern lyric poetry across all genres and forms. A Thousand Leaves, sporting long, autumnal, melodic meditations like Hits of Sunshine an...view item »

Sigur Ros are back with another album. Rather splendid packaging it comes in too with a cut out plastic thingy over the jewel case. Not seen the vinyl yet but that's cos it's not ready.
