Caroline True Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
The Gayatari Mantra is a piece of music familiar across India, and is performed here by Anuradha Paudwal of Bollywood fame, alongside her daughter Kavita. The music is deeply wonderful, and is pressed to gold vinyl for this release, which has apparently been helmed by Matt Sewell’s A Crushing Glow. Although the sound here is all Paudwal. On Caroline True.
HEKLA release their debut of dreamy, psych-pop on vinyl LP from the Caroline True label. This self-titled record borrows the tight dynamics of girl-group pop like The Shangri-Las, but connects it with weirder, off-kilter sounds, strange synthesizer instrumentation and even a little bit of Swedish folk music.

Buzzcocks frontman Pete Shelley's electronic dabblings, as unearthed by Jon Savage. Dating back to 1976, which is basically before electronic / synthesiser music even really existed, these recordings are pretty fascinating. Experimental pre-punk from before Shelley's punk pop years. Get it on vinyl.
Jon Savage takes you on a stroll through his fond memories of the time when aspects of acid-house and aspects of guitar music fused to form a new breed of psychedelia. Perfect Motion: Jon Savage’s Secret History of Second Wave Psychedelia 1988-93 gives you Primal Scream, 808 State, St Etienne and many more, in a brightly coloured double gatefold sleeve!
Archival reissue from original Manchester post-punk group Manicured Noise. Northern Stories 1970/80 is a compilation of work by the little known group, and what’s here punches along with a weirded funk / punk sound that recalls little else from the time. LP reissue with a poster (and great cover art) on Caroline True.
Crushing Glow is a compilation curated by music nerd, author and bird artist Matt Sewell. The album skips from the progressive rock of the Third Ear Band to Manchester’s post-punk heroes Durutti Column and on to the krautrock of Popol Vuh. Many tracks are of the hard-to-get-hold-of variety which makes this collection all the more appealing. Crushing Glow is available on double coloured splatter vinyl LP.
