Janelle Monae
Dirty Computer

Inventive, trend-bending hip-pop soulsmith Janelle Monáe returns with a host of collaborators for Dirty Computer. Her first album in five years finds her celebrating...view item »

Death Cab For Cutie
Thank You For Today

Once upon a time we'd have been as excited (or as excited as it's possible to get) about a new Death Cab For Cutie record but since Chris Walla left I'm not exactly sure why they are still here.  Perhaps Ben Gibbard's quite extraordinary fringe is the reason. It really is super-lush on the Verve-esque video...view item »

Ed Sheeran

The year, 2113; the setting, Earth. The planet is a withered corpse. Ravaged by the climate catastrophes and nuclear wars of the previous century, human life has become impossible to support. Societies have either fought themselves into extinction or set off to colonise Mars. The plastic content in the oceans has ...view item »

Ed Sheeran

Life is pain. That, my dear Norman Records™ customer, is just how it is. Break-ups. Boring jobs. Tax returns. Penalty shootouts. Famine. War. Pestilence. Brexit.   There is no escape, and there is no true respite. The moments of happiness, of g...view item »

Marina and The Diamonds
Better Than That / Can't Pin Me Down

Happy, upbeat pop formation Marina and the Diamonds are swarming Norman Records HQ with 7”. That’s great news, of course, and Can’t Pin Me Down will definitely circle around your head for at least two days after listening. Better Than That is even, well… You can judge for yourself wheth...view item »

The War on Drugs
A Deeper Understanding

Dire Straits fans rejoice as the War on Drugs get ready to issue their fourth album and the first since 'Lost in the Dream' - the album that saw us branded "off our rockers" because we didn't really like it. Admittedly we were in a minority on that as the album became one of those slow burning hits that...view item »

John Coltrane
My Favorite Things

I resisted this album for a long time. I thought it was just another Coltrane that I could get on a best of album. Wrong! oh so wrong. This is quintessential early Coltrane. I love the interpretations that Coltrane gives on this recording. He is such a master and this album showcases his skill, and beyond that, the soul that is an integral part ...view item »

John Coltrane & Don Cherry
The Avant-Garde (Mono)

A clear vinyl re-release of one of John Coltrane’s more disputed works, this album from him and Don Cherry has the pair playing Ornette Coleman tracks with some of the Ornette Coleman Quartet. One of the few Coltrane recordings sans piano which gives the saxophonist room to manoeuver. One for the ...view item »

Missy Elliott
Da Real World

Reissue of Missy Elliott’s second full length album Da Real World, originally released in 1999. A much straighter affair than surrounding albums, Da Real World is a pure R’n’B Hip-hop crossover. Features guest appearances from Timbaland, Aaliyah, Beyon...view item »

John Coltrane
Giant Steps (Mono)

One of the best, and especially great for those looking to delve deeper into the genre. You'll be bopping and tapping like a lunatic to this one. Phenomenal line-up as well, fyi....view item »

Led Zeppelin
How The West Was Won

Led Zep’s beloved 2003 live compilation How the West Was Won turns fifteen this year and its legal guardian (Atlanta) is really splashing out in celebration. Pick your poison: a vinyl pressing (for the first time) over four waxy discs, a remastered 3CD set or the good ol’ 5.1/stereo Blu-Ray audio DVD (with p...view item »

Action Bronson
Blue Chips 7000

Once confused by our stock buyer with London blues outfit the Archie Bronson Quartet, Action Bronson is instead an American rapper with a neat line in humorous wordplay and tight upbeat musicality. Blue Chips 7000 is his third album and the final instalment of his Blue Chip series with a distinct lack of social commenta...view item »

Pacific Daydream

Weezer bring their eleventh full length album. Acting as a follow on from “The White” album (Weezer), they go black, or grey. Taking their sunny beach filled melodic pop/rock into a world of uncertainty and fantasy. But don’t fret, the melodies are still rife. They compare it to a mix of the Be...view item »

Missy Elliott
Miss E… So Addictive

Double LP reissue of Missy Elliott’s third full length album from 2001, Miss E ...So Addictive. Includes the huge hitters Get Ur Freak On, 4 My People ft. Eve, and One Minute Man Ft. Ludacris. Award winning and a pop/hip-hop/R’n’B genre defin...view item »

John Coltrane
Coltrane Plays The Blues (Mono)

John Coltrane captured in a bluesy mood on this old Atlantic Records release. Rhino are generously reissuing Coltrane Plays The Blues 50 years after it came out, and you’ll be glad they did. The material here was captured in the same sessions as My Favourite Things, which gives you some idea of how specia...view item »

Suicide Squad: The Album

The Suicide Squad movie has an all-star line-up of actors playing an all-star line-up of superhero characters, so it makes sense to give it an all-star line-up of artists on the soundtrack. Acts as varied as Eminem, Panic! At The Disco, and Creedence Clearwater Revival are featured: my ...view item »

Missy Elliott
Supa Dupa Fly

Reissue of Missy Elliott’s debut album from 1997 to commemorate its 20th anniversary. Features huge hitters The Rain, Sock It 2 Me, and Hit Em Wit Da Hee. Produced by Timbaland and features Lil’ Kim, Aaliyah, Busta Rhymes, ...view item »

John Coltrane
Olé Coltrane

Ole Coltrane was recorded in 1961 by John Coltrane’s remarkable quintet at the time (Reggie Workman, Elvin Jones, McCoy Tyner and Eric Dolphy), with the very welcome addition of Freddie Hubbard and Art Davis. Now ...view item »

Ti Amo

It's always a good thing when Phoenix announce a new album, especially as we’ve waited four years since the last one (Bankrupt!). On Ti Amo the French popsters have Italy on their mind, summoning up a glorious summer euro-fantasy of bright synths and gorgeously catchy tunes. What’s not to like? ...view item »

Will Joseph Cook
Sweet Dreamer

Post-punk meets pop on the debut album of the multi-talented Will Joseph Cook. Sweet Dreamer, on vinyl LP and CD from Atlantic records, follows several well-received EPs and is a high energy burst of bittersweet melodies and rich production that mixes guitar-band dynamics with glossy electronic techniques....view item »

808: The Music

808 is a documentary about a drum machine, the much-loved Roland TR-808. Naturally, the star machine is at the centre of the film’s soundtrack, which is released separately as 808: The Music. Original tracks from artists like Lil Wayne engage with the unique rhythms of the Roland. CD / double LP release f...view item »

Charles Mingus
Blues & Roots

This is one of the all-time great Mingus albums, recorded around the same time as the better-known Mingus Ah Um. There's enough of a similarity between them that fans of one will almost certainly like the other, but they each have a different focus. Ah Um is a great introduction to Mingus's scope as a composer; Blues & Roots is more narrow, ...view item »

Frightened Rabbit
Painting Of A Panic Attack

Frightened Rabbit return with their fifth album, Painting of a Panic Attack. The Scottish indie band have gone through some line-up changes, added some electronic elements to their guitar-based sound and have Aaron Dessner of The National in the producer’s chair. Frontman Scott Hutchinson&...view item »

Death Cab For Cutie
Tractor Rape Chain

The classic 'Bee Thousand' era Guided By Voices track has been reworked by Mark Kozelek pal Ben Gibbard and his Death Cab For Cuties for a indie-rock geek guy pleasing 7". There's another song on the B side but I'm not sure what that is. It will set you back £10.99. I got a nice Mexican Wrap, fries and hal...view item »

Beautiful Lies

The third album from singer-songwriter Birdy sees her connecting her powerful voice with dream-pop structures, diverse instrumentation and unforgettable choruses. Beautiful Lies, on vinyl LP, CD and deluxe CD from Atlantic, is phenomenally confident and fully-formed, easily moving between genre ...view item »

99 Cents

99c is the third album by American singer and producer Santigold. Santigold announced herself in 2008 with the critically and commercially successful self-titled debut which included Collaborations with Pharrell Williams and Julian Casablancas of The Strokes....view item »

Marina and The Diamonds
Family Jewels

Marina & The Diamonds’ albums are being reissued! Family Jewels was her debut record, the first we heard of her pop bangers and her dramatic, heavily-stylised vocals. Includes her first big hit ‘I Am Not A Robot’, which you’ll probably remember. Vinyl LP reissue out on Atlantic....view item »

Marina and The Diamonds
Electra Heart

Marina & The Diamonds’ albums are being reissued! Electra Heart was her second record, and is full of proper pop bangers. You can get the vinyl edition, or there is a CD version with four bonus tracks. I’d recommend the CD, as one of the bonus tracks is named ‘Sex Yeah’, surely one of the mos...view item »

Led Zeppelin

The definitive Led Zeppelin compilation, Mothership gets treated to a remastered reissue supervised by Jimmy Page himself. The 4LP vinyl edition arrives contained in a deluxe archival 2-piece box including an oversized full-colour booklet. A delicious introduction or a fine collectors piece. Out on CD and vinyl LP box s...view item »

Marina and The Diamonds
Froot Presentation Box

Mariana & the Diamonds ready their third record Froot this year, a fluorescent collection of pop songs that come together with the production council of Faultline. Here's a box you can put all of the to-be-released 7"s in for presentation purposes, because apparently that's a thi...view item »

Lay Down The Law/ Eye Need To Know

THE SWITCHES re release Lay Down The Law on 2 x 7" and CD. The best thing to talk about is the covers as the music all sounds the same these days . This one features the boys having a greasy spoon, necking some drinks, blowing bubble gum bubbles and they're being interviewed by the fuzz. Presumerably for the awful cover..... Commercial indie r...view item »

The Tourniquet

Magnet's boyish charm comes through with a decided strength as many of the songs, although still questioning life; start to find a new direction and purpose within the stage of intimacy and comfort. I listen to Magnet because I like being able to listen to dreamy romantic contemplations savouring each inflection of his voice in his magical elect...view item »

Marina and The Diamonds
Blue / Solitare

As promised indie-pop charters Marina and The Diamonds are back with a banquet of tasty pop morsels. Blue/Solitaire is a juicy double-header from the colourful album FROOT. Part of the drip-fed series of seven inches, it’s a fine little collectible. Out on coloured vinyl 7” from Atlantic....view item »

Marina and The Diamonds
Gold / Forget

Back with a delicious collection of tasty treats, chart-botherers Marina and The Diamonds present Gold/Forget. A delightful duo of tangy pop songs from the colourful album FROOT. As part of a series of seven inches, it’s a tantalising little collectors piece. Out on coloured vinyl 7” from Atlantic....view item »

Marina and The Diamonds
Savages / Weeds

Marina and her chart-hardened diamonds return with a series of seven inches from the new album FROOT. Savages/Weeds is a cool and crunchy collection of sweet-tasting pop tunes that forms a pleasingly colourful collectors item amongst the set. Feast your ears. Out on coloured vinyl 7” from Atlantic....view item »

Hard Fi
Living For The Weekend

When I was a wee nipper of 16 or so  - I did work experience at a bank. One day I heard an old feller that worked there say 'I just live for t'weekends now'. I thought it was the saddest and most depressing thing I'd ever heard. What about the other 5 days!! Well that's what happens I guess once reality hits and you start getting ground do...view item »

Jay Farrar & Benjamin Gibbard
One Fast Move

Ben Gibbard and Jay Farrar are both highly respected rock musicians. But they're more than just technically good they're artists. So I was delighted as a Kerouac fan when I learned that they were bringing out a tribute album to the man. Didn't know what to expect, but it's certainly not a disappointment. What it is, is an extremely laid-back med...view item »

Death Cab For Cutie
Narrow Stairs

Narrow Stairs possibly gets lost between their most recent release Kintsugi and the immaculate Plans album of 2005, but it really shouldn't be. Narrow Stairs like most Death Cab albums is very aware of a clear thematic sound that keeps all the songs flowing nicely but makes room for exciting experimentation on the odd track. This album's stand o...view item »

Fall At Your Feet

here's a new single by Magnet the band. Well I've been listening to it whilst writing that rant and it sounds pretty great. Orchestral melancholic stuff somewhere between Radiohead and Goldfrapp. Fall At Your Feet is out noooo...view item »

Stay The Night/ Dark At 4

Those of you who are doubting the existence of satan can be reassured that he does in fact exist as once again GHOSTS are still chomping at his evil bit. Hugely commercial pop with brash brassy synthetic sounding trumpets. This makes Keane sound cutting edge and that really takes some doing. Total insidious crap pop music. Not m...view item »

Dog Is Dead
Teenage Daughter / Do The Right Thing

Just bought this single and I am astonished at how much better it sounds on vinyl! I love the band and have been to see them a couple of times. They are great live and it is nice to be able to play this music on vinyl! Also it's a limited edition to 500 (I think! Maybe it's 1000 not sure!). Definitely a great purchase for any ...view item »

Death Cab For Cutie
I Will Possess Your Heart

Death Cab For Cutie had me with this song. I had been a casual fan of the band and was impressed but was in no way aware of how sonically intense they were until I heard this song. "I Will Possess Your Heart" tells the story of a man's lust for another who will soon discover their love - a tale that Benjamin Gibbard tells with delicate prose. Th...view item »

Marina and The Diamonds
Immortal / I’m A Ruin

There's a lot of 7" incoming from bombastic pop star Marina and her Diamonds, all of which waits in thrall of her upcoming third record, Froot. Pretty great album name -- sounds like the word foot, and also the word root, which is neat, I guess? Immortal / I'm A Ruin is...view item »

Marina and The Diamonds
Froot / Happy

Fruity arcade-inspired synthpop with an eye on the charts from Marina & The Diamonds. The titular first single from the forthcoming album FROOT, this double A-side is presented on coloured 7” vinyl with a further five different coloured records on the way. Out on vinyl 7” from Atlantis....view item »

Death Cab For Cutie

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of fixing broken ceramics - quite a challenge. To Death Cab for Cutie, the title has significant meaning, considering the turbulent times the group has gone through between its 7th album released in 2011, and their newest. Whether they have come out stronger? We are just as curious as you ar...view item »

The Staves
If I Was

‘If I Was’ is English acoustic folk rock trio The Staves' follow up to their stunning 2012 debut 'Dead & Born & Grown'. Produced by American, indie folk band Bon Iver's Justin Vernon following an extensive tour together and a trip to Eau Claire in Wisconsin which resulted in the recording sessions that would form the bas...view item »

Marina and The Diamonds

‘Froot’ is Welsh singer songwriter Marina and The Diamonds third album following her 2012 British number one album ‘Electra Heart’, Produced by one of the Uk’s most adventurous producers David Kosten. Due for release on the 15th of March on Gold and Atlantic records, ‘Froot’ represents the beginning of a...view item »

Led Zeppelin
Physical Graffiti

This deluxe edition of Led Zeppelin’s sixth studio album ‘Physical Graffiti’ marks the fortieth anniversary of the original vinyl release in 1975. As with every Led Zeppelin deluxe edition, 'Physical Graffiti' has been remastered by guitarist Jimmy Page and also includes a disc of previously unreleased material including rough ...view item »

Spreading Rumours

Who are these? Some whippersnappers I can barely understand. The opening track sounds like Nirvana's 'All Apologies' as played by McBusted. I've just heard a steel drum. Its wierd though, I can hear melodies nicked from 'cool stuff' but its very tween - pop ...view item »

Led Zeppelin

Led Zeppelin's 'IV', known colloquially as "the one with Stairway To Heaven On It", was the band's fourth record (uh, yes?), and saw them surge back from the relative obscurity of 'III'. It stands as one of the high watermarks of hard rock and saw the band cross into folk and prog more consistently. Get the Led out in 2014, because I hear that's...view item »

Led Zeppelin
Houses Of The Holy

The first of Led Zeppelin's records to have its own name, rather than a numeral and a speaks-for-itself attitude, 'Houses of the Holy' saw the band growing and, yes, maturing -- it was also their first record to comprise of entirely original material, and the band's textures opened up where their early reverence for their influences had started ...view item »

The Staves
Blood I Bled

The Staves are a sisterly trio crafting indelible indie pop, and 'Blood I Bled' is but a teaser of what's to come -- this three-song EP shows the band preparing for their next record, which follows up 2012's 'Dead & Born & Grown'. Things really do seem to come in threes for this band, which is a pretty cool gimmick. Title track "Blood I ...view item »

Owl John
Owl John

Owl John is the alias of Scott Hutchison, the songwriter, vocalist and all-round principle guy for Scottish indie rock band Frightened Rabbit. On his first solo record, he enlisted help from bandmate Andy Monaghan and friend Simon Liddel (Olympic Swimmers) in the production department, splitting his time between the Isle of Mull and the Sta...view item »

Lykke Li
I Never Learn

I Never Learn is Lykke Li’s third album and conveniently wraps up a trilogy. The Swedish singer recorded the album after a relationship break up. The album’s title and other songs such as Sleeping Alone and Never Gonna Love Again show she’s writing from experience. Lykke Li...view item »

Paul Thomas Saunders
Beautiful Desolation

Paul Thomas Saunders brings us a debut album steeped in a complex and layered sound. The emerging singer songwriter’s vision is clearly shaped by the sounds of the '90s – one would imagine he was heavily hit by the cosmic that Jeff Buckley’s Grace left – yet this album is more than a pastich...view item »

Janelle Monae
The Electric Lady

Janelle Monae is a genuinely talented performer who exists artistically entirely in her own world. Kind of like Prince, who guests on the album, I guess. “The Electric Lady” is not only a concept album but part of a series of concept albums that include all of her work ...view item »

Frightened Rabbit
Pedestrian Verse

FR's last two albums have been a great continuation of their early stuff. To me, something is gained and lost in the improved production values in their more recent work. The songs are more expansive--"anthemic" is the word I'd use --and they teem with Hutchinson's own brand of dour (but hopeful) sentiments. But, the earlier work is more persona...view item »


How to follow up a record like Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, a record that was a smash with the hip indie fan and the pop lover alike? Bankrupt is Phoenix’s answer, maintaining the busy yet smooth sounds we previously enjoyed, with perhaps just a little more heft. Just right for your light and breezy summer r...view item »

Frightened Rabbit

Frightened Rabbit are on Atlantic Records eh? Home of Hall & Oates, Steve ‘Silk’ Hurley and The Pointer Sisters. Who’d have thought? They respond by producing something well epic. A very loud voice Scottish man shouts over something one part ...view item »

The Joy Formidable
Wolf's Law

The Welsh trio are back with the ambitious follow up to their breakthrough Big Roar debut. The indie/noise pop of Big Roar favourites like “Whirring” and “Chapter 2” are not as abundant on Wolf’s Law. They seem to have grown, the lyrics are more personal, the pianos ubiquitous and soundscapes that would impress ...view item »

The Staves
Dead & Born & Grown

I don't know what to talk about The Staves, these songs make me dream. Their voices are exciting, I'm really magnified!...view item »

Dog Is Dead
All Our Favourite Stories

This one from Nottingham indie pop five piece Dog Is Dead came out in October last year and I was quite surprised that it did not totally cemented itself as a favourite among the rambling teenage hordes, giving them a rather fun, interesting alternative to the odious Bieber and the general sexism and objectification of the other artists clutteri...view item »

Frightened Rabbit
State Hospital EP

Doesn't hang together like the albums, but makes me appreciate how well they construct a record. It's a gorgeous extension of the Old Old Fashioned sentiment lyrically, and it's got a killer arrangement. Scott Hutchison and company have continued to move forward with top notch creations that strive for greatness and more often than not hit the m...view item »

Master Of My Make Believe

Santigold sure took long enough to release her sophomore album, "Master Of My Make-Believe". Four years in fact. It was worth the wait, though. Her second album is an improvement over her excellent debut, 2008's "Santigold". Santigold is willing to actually get 'into' the music and voyage rather than vying for the common denominator. She's also ...view item »

Rooms Filled With Light

On Rooms Filled with Light I think Fanfarlo has successfully moved away from Arcade Fire / Belle and Sebastian references and managed to create a unique sound that recalls the freshness of New Wave 80s pop. I put this a step above Reservoir, as good as that album was, because Fanfarlo have now found the breadth and maturity to step out of the ra...view item »

Lykke Li
Get Some

Lykke Li Get's Some on this the taster single from her much anticipated second album released later this year. Assisted again by Bjorn Yttling (of Peter, Bjorn & John) Li's 80's pop sound is a bold as ever. 'Get Some' lays down a lively Adam and the Ants' 'army of drums' style back-beat that provides a militant rhythm to hang a good pop song...view item »

The Joy Formidable

The press release for this 7" is littered with the usual bullshit about 'the ones to watch in 2011' and 'the band most likely to go supernova in 2011' and 'a taster of what's to come' so I don't need to tell you what the deal is with these lads. They are already a fairly popular indie pop group who will soon, with a little push from the lads at ...view item »

Lykke Li
I Follow Rivers

Following the river is the wise move if you're a weary traveler with only the stars to guide you. Can't go far wrong with a river. It's both tranquil and life giving. Lykke Li would like to reassure the river that she is following so you know... Don't worry so much, yeah. If you're familiar with L.L. you'll have a good idea of what to expect her...view item »

Frightened Rabbit
A Frightened Rabbit EP

If you don't know who Frightened Rabbit are you've probably been living under a rock for the past few years. Two years into their career they've already had more plaudits piled upon them than bands many years their senior. On this EP there's three new tracks of their trademark Scottish fo...view item »

Dog Is Dead
Hands Down

Commercial sounding indie rock from these Nottingham types, who are kind of like Interpol crossed with Radiohead. It's the kind of song that will probably dominate Radio 2's airwaves for quite some it has all the charm of a Coldplay single. It's well produced and played, etc...but...view item »

Hard Fi
Good For Nothing

In these modern days of risking offending someone with each review, fans may be interested to note that I once positively reviewed a Hard Fi record. It's a stain on my otherwise blemish free character. Anyway to my utter joy, this one reviews itself with its title - it's not me that said it, no way....view item »

If You Fail/ Weave A Noose

The Fields have a new single out on Atlantic (another big label...) of epic sounding stadium indie.... it's not folky anymore and if anything it's a bit shoegazey at times. It's not utter bollocks but it's a bit trad if you ask me.......view item »
