SOPA Vinyl, CD & tapes from Norman Records

Katrine Stochholm
Danser Til Radio

This is the kind of dream sequence I can deal with. She’s been doing it for a while now, but Danish producer and once Under Byen member Katrine Stochholm continues to make symphonic fantasylands on ‘Danser Til Radio’, a record that uses its instrumental flourishes and electro-pop additives to create a brimming landscape -- frau...view item »

Sister Chain & Brother John
The Androgyne Show

I'm not quite sure I'm ready for Parlour Punk. I mean wtf dude? Streampunk is hard enough to deal with but a Victorian punk themed duo?!? Nah. Well, Berlin based Sister Chain & Brother John are on to record number two now so someone must be listening and, if I'm honest, this is pret...view item »

Nils Grondahl
Jeg Har Noget Tilsvarende Derhjemme

Nils Grondahl: "Jeg Har Noget tilsvarende Derhjemme" (Sound Of Perpetual Astonishment) Starts of on a wild free floating scree-out in the vien of Sunburned Hand Of The Man Or No Neck Blues Band, collapsing into a very fine micro-tonal work out that's barely perceptible. Lock up your cats and dogs as it's just about within our hearing rang...view item »

Marzipan Marzipan
Marzipan Marzipan

Marzipan Marzipan: "S/T" (Sound Of Perpetual Astonishment) One girl vocal antics with sparse guitars, fx and electronic instrumentation. Lurching from the semi- harsh to the playfully melodic. Sing-song/half spoken word delivery for fans of Chicks on Speed or any of those femminist Berlin girls with DIY agendas....view item »

9
Eponymous

In this week are a bunch of CD's from Danish label Sopa. Home of 2 of my favourite things, bacon and porn so I'm already smiling. First up is a band called 9 with their CD called 'Eponymous' which is limited to 300 copies. Doesn't sound like many but when you think that it only takes physical sales of 10 copies to get a number one these days it's p...view item »

Delay Lama
Mk. 1

Now a CD from the amusingly named Delay Lama on Sophamore. 'MK.1' collects recordings from 1997 and 2000 when it was a solo project . This is essentially one long track that begins like a fuzzy humming drone piece but becomes more rhythmical as it evolves. Then different parts are more minimal with strange guitar and electronic sounds and peculiar ...view item »

Girls Love Rallie
Les Chansons Terribles

Also on Sopa is a CD by Girls Love Rallie. It's called 'Les Chansons Terribles' and it's limited to 100 copies. Though my French is shite (blame that on dreadful French teachers at school who thought it was more important to put the fear of god into me rather than doing their job and teaching French) I think it means the bad songs. Feel free to cor...view item »


Sopa Curiosa

Anyone remember the Sopa Deliciosa compilation 2CD? Well the label have another compilation available. This is a single disc with 22 fairly eclectic tracks from a load of underground artists. Most of which I've never heard of so this disc certainly works at bringing these artists to peoples attention and hopefully showcasing some of their talent. T...view item »
