Sturgill Simpson
Sound & Fury

Though Sturgill Simpson comes from a country background, his records have become increasingly ambitious with 2016's A Sailors Guide To Earth featuring a Nirvana cover as well as a more vintage soulful soul that earned him a Grammy. Next up for the singer-songwriter is Sound & Fury, an album that accompanies a Japanese anime film based on a story from Simpson himself. The album is a soundtrack to the film and watch simultaneously and you'll see that each song represents a section of the film. Here is the audio version on CD or vinyl. 

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 the spectra of sexuality with rubbery pop - some of which co-written by the late Prince himself. The album also hosts the dulcet tones of Brian Wilson, Zoë Kravitz, Grimes and Pharrell Williams.

Death Cab For Cutie
Blue EP

2018's Thank You For Today suggested that it wasn't quite all over for Death Cab For Cutie as they rediscovered at least some of the things that made them special in the first place. Like Interpol before them, they've chosen to follow up an album with a 5 track EP length release. Is this a new thing to do? We'll see if it catches on. Meanwhile the least you can do is enjoy some more emotional guitar pop from Ben Gibbard and the boys.  

Frightened Rabbit
Tiny Changes: A Celebration Of The Midnight Organ Fight

Before the tragic death of Scott Hutchison, Frightened Rabbit had planned to release this Tiny Changes: A Celebration Of The Midnight Organ Fight, to celebrate that album's tenth anniversary by asking their friends to play songs from the album. Now, the likes of Biffy Clyro and the Twilight Sad enact an even more profound act of remembrance. 

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.

Weezer
Weezer (Teal Album)

Weezer have been delighting fans all over the world since 1994 with their fun brand of post-grunge guitar pop. They have a penchant for naming more-or-less every other album by colour. Weezer, or The Teal Album is an album of covers headed up by their now infamous cover of Toto’s Africa. Elsewhere there’s versions of songs that were originally by TLC, Black Sabbath, Tears For Fears and ELO, amongst others.

Marina
LOVE + FEAR

Here we find Marina ditching The Diamonds and going it alone. Mind you, the shift doesn't cause Marina to shake up her sound too much on LOVE + FEAR. This is another LP of ambitious, big-beat pop from the Charli XCX that it’s ok to introduce to your mum. The Clean Bandit- and Luis Fonsi-featuring single ‘Baby’ sounds quite a bit like Shakira’s ‘Whenever, Wherever’, which is always welcome.

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 most direct pop titles ever.

Wallows
Nothing Happens

Nothing ever bloody happens does it? Well, I think Californian indie rockers Wallows are being a little disingenuous here. They’ve called their debut album Nothing Happens, but things like being lucky enough to release their own music - and on Atlantic Records no less - most definitely counts as something happening. It was produced by John Congleton and features a guest appearance from singer/songwriter Clairo.

Weezer
Invasion Of Privacy (The Black Album)

It had to happen at some point. Yes, after Red, Green, Blue and the rest, we now have Weezer’s Black Album. Technically this thing is called Invasion Of Privacy but we can pretty much guarantee no-one will be referring to it thus five years from now. This LP has been produced by Dave Sitek and sees the band going for that sort of nerdy white-boy funk thing that has been tried by everyone from Nickleback to Jack Penate over the past few years. We could have seen that coming too.

Aretha Franklin
Atlantic Records 1960s Collection

Aretha Franklin undoubtedly possessed one of the greatest voices ever committed to wax. To celebrate the Queen of Soul’s life and work we have Atlantic Records: 1960s Collection - a 6 LP box set featuring her ‘60s albums and an LP of studio outtakes. Each LP is pressed on 140g vinyl, on Atlantic Records.

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 gaiety and light, are but a dappling of sunshine on the shadowed path of mortality. In every triumph lurks failure; in every victory, defeat. But in the darkest moments, remember that we have Ed Sheeran. We have his debut LP +. We have its ubiquitous and Very Clever Indeed singles like 'The A Team'. We have his MBE. Well technically he has it, but really it was awarded to all of us for battling on through the gallows comedy that is to live and breathe on planet Earth. At least - ahh, so very much at least - we have Ed.

Ed Sheeran
X

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 destroyed all marine life and turned the water into a strange grey substance with the consistency of tapioca pudding. 85% of the Earth’s surface has become uninhabitable due to the merging of all four of the seasons into one year-long period of ultra-heat. In the arctic circle, on the last remaining ice floe, a single tannoy and a lone polar bear. Over the tannoy, Ed Sheeran’s second studio LP X plays on a loop. The polar bear gazes pensively out over the white wastes. These songs mean nothing to him. He sees the sun dip over the lip of horizon. Six months of darkness are come. He lets out a low grunt, barely more than a whisper. Somewhere in the swirl of his subconscious, he asks himself if he will survive this time around. ‘I need you darling, come on set the tone ...’

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 for lead track 'Gold Rush' but that's as interesting as it all gets. 

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 everyone owns - just like 'Brothers in Arms' in fact. This is sure to be a much anticipated follow up. 

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 die-hard fans.

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 photo gallery). Buy the box set containing the lot and enjoy also a 96kHz/24-bit download, a commemorative photo book and a print of the album cover. No minidisc version though - what were they thinking?

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 commentary instead focussing on a fun and energetic 'mixtape' like feel.

Led Zeppelin
II

Led Zeppelin II is the second album, believe it or not, by Led Zeppelin. They are, as many people would tell you, widely regarded as the greatest rock band of all time. II is the album with Whole Lotta Love and Heartbreaker on it - so what more do you need to know? It’s essential stuff…..and now, it’s available in a variety of spiffy vinyl and CD versions.

Weezer
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 Beach Boys and The Clash, so prepare yourself.

Led Zeppelin
IV

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 the done thing.

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 special we are talking here.

Various
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 my. This double vinyl release includes three sides of music and an etching on the D-side.

Phoenix
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? Ti Amo is out on Atlantic.

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 there’s a line-up. Three pieces that explore Spanish and African themes. LP reissue on Atlantic.

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.

Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin

If you were to assemble a hard rock band you’d probably want John Bonham on drums, John Paul Jones on bass, Jimmy Page on guitar and Robert Plant on vocals. That’s what Led Zeppelin did and they were arguably the best hard rock band there’s ever been. Their self-titled debut was released in 1968 and thus cemented the band’s place in rock history forever. Various vinyl and CD versions available.

Various
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 from Atlantic.

Phoenix
Bankrupt

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 road-trip.

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’s dark and intensely sincere lyrics - here influenced by his move from Scotland to L.A. - tie the album together into a package that will delight fans old and new.

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 half a beer for that amount last night. Who's the winner?  

Birdy
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 and style.

Santigold
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. Its follow-up 2012’s Master Of Make Believe was also well received containing hits such as Disparate Youth. 99c continues in a similar vein and features the singles Can’t Get Enough Of Myself, Who Be Lovin' Me and Chasing Shadows.

Led Zeppelin
Mothership

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 set from Atlantic.

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 basis of their collaboration. The result is a powerfully beautiful work of modern songwriting.

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 mixes of ‘In My Time Of Dying’ and ‘Houses Of The Holy’.

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 Bled" is a hushed ukelele jam that explodes with a commanding voice, old-school riffs by the way of the Decemberists and newer Fleet Foxes, and some good old trumpet.

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 to fade away.

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’s pain is to the benefit of the listener. I Never Learn is available on vinyl LP and CD.

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 pastiche. This work is a collection of ethereal and heartfelt songs that realise a mature sounding record that sees past its younger years.
