Diverse Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
The Boo Radleys are an often overlooked band that managed to really capture the sound of the nineties perfectly. This album, their third, came out two years before their hit which sank them into obscurity, and was NME’s album of the year. It’s mixture of proper indie, psychedelia, jazz and always that big, bright sound that we remember fondly. Double vinyl.
Anglo-Scots trio, Lau mix traditional folk instrumentation such as fiddle and accordion with tasteful electronics to create a beguiling new folk sound. The Bell That Never Rang was voted best Scottish album by The Herald and was highly rated by Mojo magazine. Lau have also won the accolade of Best Group at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards three years on the trot, a feat that no one else has managed.
Third solo album from Idlewild frontman Roddy Woomble. Now a prominent figure on the British folk scene, it's fair to say Woomble has all but abandoned his rock roots. Debut album My Secret Is My Silence (2006) resided at the top of the UK folk charts for several weeks and was widely acclaimed. Listen To Keep follows on from the first two releases and will not disappoint fans. It's also the first Woomble record to be released on vinyl. 180g vinyl it is too.
