Domino Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records

If you discount Rough Trade, Domino Records have a good claim to being the UK’s premier alternative rock label. Launched in 1993, Domino initially specialised in the British distribution of records being issued in the U.S.A. by Sub Pop and Drag Cit...read more »

Arctic Monkeys
Black Treacle

I don't even remember this Arctic Monkeys song. Probably because it was the fourth single taken from their fourth album Suck it and See. My loss though as it's a lovely track not dissimilar from Cornerstone. Fans of all things Sheffield will be pleased to see Richard Hawley turn up on B side You and I. 7" re-press on Domino.

Sorry
925

Sorry have only been seen so far on a grab bag of singles so its high time they delivered their debut album. The North London crew are nothing if not shape shifters and have a thrillingly open minded nature to their music making. This hotly anticipated debut was, for example, influenced by Aphex Twin and Tony Bennett (and possibly Ronnie Corbett though citation needed).  It's a very now record  - filled as much with experimentation as it is with pop hooks.   

Rustin Man
Clockdust

It’s two albums in as many years now for Paul Webb, who records as Rustin Man and kept us waiting 17 years for 2019’s Drift Code. Originating from the same sessions, Clockdust sounds less dense and more atmospheric than its predecessor, taking inspiration from classic black-and-white movies.

Animal Collective
Strawberry Jam

Strawberry Jam was the one before the big one for Animal Collective and although the subsequent Merriweather Post Pavillion album now tends to dominate the rest of their catalogue, Strawberry Jam is not without its charms. It sees the band moving further away from their weird folk roots towards more of a weird pop mainstream.  Ideas galore as usual some good, some not so but on tracks like opener Peacebone the band seemed to achieve the mixture of the catchy and the experimental that they'd spend a decade searching for.   

Villagers
The Sunday Walker EP

Following the success of The Art of Pretending To Swim, which appeared some 14 months ago, Conor O’Brien delivers a new EP that neatly wraps up Villagers’ latest creative phase. A four-track collection that gathers up unused tracks from that album’s sessions, The Sunday Walker exudes the same clear-eyed confidence we’ve come to expect from O’Brien.

Devonte Hynes
Queen & Slim (Original Motion Picture Score)

I've said it before about Devonte Hynes (Blood Orange, Lightspeed Champion etc etc)  that he gets where water won't. Last year alone he released a Blood Orange 'mixtape', directed a video for Beck and got a place in a list of the 100 Most Creative People. Now he's onto soundtracks and his first stab is for this American crime drama that follows to African Americans after they go on the run after killing a cop.

Ballet Slippers

It seems totally insane that it has been ten years since Animal Collective's high watermark Merriweather Post Pavilion album. To celebrate, the band are issuing this 3LP live album containing tracks from the album and other favourites performed in concert on their 2009 tour.  A fascinating document of a unique and mind bending band at their peak.

Georgia
Never Let You Go

Never Let You Go is arguably (definitely!) the best track from Georgia’s second album, Seeking Thrills. It’s a mega-catchy pop hit that takes inspiration from ‘80s Chicago house and Detroit Techno. It comes as a 12” single with a remix from English producer Skream on the flip. On Domino.

Arctic Monkeys
Whatever People Say I Am

Debut album from Los Angeles' neé Sheffield's finest from back when they were four scrappy kids with big fringes, before the smart shirts and slicked back hair. Even now the young Alex Turner's lyrics are genuinely impressive in how vivid a vision of the People's Republic of South Yorkshire they can create.

Protomartyr
Ultimate Success Today

Ultimate Success Today is the fifth album by Detroit rock band Protomartyr. It is their second album for Domino Records. The album was inspired by the reissue of their debut album, making singer Joe Casey think about the way they felt first time out. He was reminded of how that could have been the band’s only album and the urgency to make it that spurred them on. He realises that they are in it for the long haul now, but he still wanted to make sure he said what he wanted say while he has the chance.

Porches
Ricky Music

Aaron Maine aka Porches is back with his fourth album and the news is coming through is that it was written when he was madly in love. Therefore its full of emotion, confusion and the thrill and the yearning that being in such a situation can provoke. It contains 11 sleek electronic pop tracks full of honest lyricism and there's a couple of big star guests in Mitski and Dev Hynes (Blood Orange etc).

Inspired by her work on the ‘Peaky Blinders’ soundtrack, Anna Calvi decides to revisit her 2018 studio album Hunter and re-record seven of its songs in stripped-down, reconstructed form, with the help of Courtney Barnett, Julia Holter and IDLES’ Joe Talbot among others. Renamed Hunted, the inner vulnerability of these songs is now foregrounded.

Stephen Malkmus
Traditional Techniques

Not put off by the fact that Pavement are reuniting for Primavera this year, the group’s legendary lead singer Stephen Malkmus is releasing his second solo album in as many years. Following 2019’s electronic-influenced Groove Denied, Traditional Techniques is both adventurous yet comfortingly familiar. 

Jon Hopkins & Kelly Lee Owens
Luminous Spaces / Luminous Beings

Regarded as one of the most pioneering and boundary-pushing electronic twiddlers in the game at the moment, Jon Hopkins' recent works have seen the producer reach new stratospheric level. In this collaboration with Kelly Lee Owens, 'Luminous Beings' is re-worked into a sparkling and transcending slice of gold named 'Luminous Spaces'.

Real Estate
The Main Thing

Rejoice - a new Real Estate album! The New Jersey band’s knack for guitar jangle and glorious melodies has cemented their status a favourite around these parts over the years. Their new album, The Main Thing, is inspired partly by the Roxy Music song of the same name, simply because 5 albums into their career they need to be making music that sounds that good. Features a guest appearance by Sylvan Esso on the album’s first single Paper Cup.

Buzzcocks
A Different Kind Of Tension

A Different Kind Of Tension was the third album by legendary Manchester punk band Buzzcocks. It was originally released in 1979.

Clinic
Wheeltappers and Shunters

I didn’t think Clinic were ever coming back, fortunately they have. Wheeltappers and Shunters is the Liverpool band’s eighth album but first for seven years. The title is taken from a 1970s variety show hosted by Bernard Manning - but don’t worry, it’s an inside joke, they’re not a bunch of ignorant bigots. On Domino.

Arctic Monkeys
Brianstorm

Brianstorm  - see what they did there? This was the first single to be taken from Arctic Monkeys second album Favourite Worst Nightmare and was early proof that their debut was no flash in the pan. It's a familiar storming racket with Alex Turner's dextrous, humorous lyrics atop swirling guitars and clattering drums. That rascal himself Dizzee Rascal turns up on the B side for an unlikely collaboration.

The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala

The oddly titled The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala was a track taken from Arctic Monkeys fourth album Suck It and See. It's a melodic treat of a song on an album that has sometimes been accused of being too hard edged. Lots of lyrical twists and turns and stadium-ready rock here. The only downside is that the B side features Miles Kane.

Arctic Monkeys
Who The F**K Are The Arctic Monkeys

The title of this 2006 EP by Sheffield's finest was on of the many excuses I used to put me off listening to them in their early days. But it was me who lost out as this 5 track EP continued the meteoric rise of the band as they showcased an innate wit and ability to document kitchen sink dramas. It might also have been an early example of the band following their muse as lead track View From The Afternoon was surely a hit in waiting but the 5 track format disqualified it from chart entry. Pioneers you see, even then.

Will Oldham
Songs of Love and Horror

Will Oldham yet again mines his own back catalogue this time as solo singer songwriter armed with just voice and guitar. It will be interesting to hear how everything sits in such an intimate setting. The album has also been made as a companion piece to a book of his lyrics which is about to be published. And as a plus point you get a nice picture of him with a dog on the cover. Woof woof!

Pavement
Terror Twilight

Terror Twilight was the final album by US indie slackers Pavement and was a much more crafted and produced album than earlier efforts. Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich tried to discipline the notoriously loose band which led to tensions between band and producer. The result is a mixed affair sometimes wistful sometimes wilfully obscure but appears more forced that earlier records and is allegedly not one of Stephen Malkmus's favourites. Still, it showcases a next level move for the band before they finally (and it seems terminally) called it a day.

Pavement
Slanted & Enchanted

This was the Pavement I liked. A sloppy sprawling lo-fi charm fest taking heavy influence from the Velvet Underground and the Fall but stumbling blinking in the sun with classic melodies glinting through the fuzzy production and madcap drumming. On top of that add Malkmus wordplay and you get an eternal classic.

Dan Deacon
Mystic Familiar

Since 2015’s Glass Riffer album, Baltimore’s electronic maestro Dan Deacon has been throwing his whole self into other projects such as soundtracks for Rat Film and Time Trial. He did, however, keep nipping back to his day job of making his music. The songs on Mystic Familiar were formed over this time, and whilst he was returning to what he knows best, the experiences have fed into him expanding his sound on this record. 

Yorkston/Thorne/Khan
Navarasa : Nine Emotions

Navarasa : Nine Emotions is the third collaborative album between James Yorkston, Jon Thorne and Suhail Yusuf Khan. The trio blend their disparate influences (folk, jazz and Indian classical music) into a cross cultural record which explores the nine emotions of the arts  - including love, laughter, anger, sorrow, wonder, tranquility.  

LA Priest
GENE

Off-kilter wonk-popper LA Priest (aka Sam Dust) returns with 'GENE' - a sophomore album capitalising on the knob twiddler's debut offering. The experimentalist was previously the leader of cult favourites Late of The Pier and similar sensibilities can be heard in the works of LA Priest - but with a more twisted and avant garde approach.

Georgia Barnes, better known simply as Georgia caused a stir back in 2015 with her self-titled debut. Seeking Thrills is her latest album, a dancefloor focused album that aims to kick off 2020 with some pop-punch. If you’ve heard her recent single, About Work The Dancefloor (included here), it gives you a good idea of the vibe on this album. Also includes the single, Never Let You Go.

Fat White Family
Serfs Up!

Oh lord they are back. "The most gratifying and unexpected creative volte face in recent musical history!" screams the press release. The first track released from the sessions 'Feet' spends its time begging to differ as it just sounds like Fat White Family. But why let actual music get in the way of a hyped press release and their usual flirting with dodgy imagery. It's certainly something that never stopped Fat White Family before so in that respect it's same as it ever was. We'll reserve further judgement til we've heard the whole thing maybe.

The Magnetic Fields
69 Love Songs

If you wanted to make an incredibly long album and you figured 100 songs would be too many what would be the next number you'd pick? Anyway, Stephen Merritt did a ridiculous thing and wrote 69 indie pop songs about love and actually managed to pull it off. These are songs that had to be eccentric and endearing, which they are.

Fat White Family
Tastes Good With The Money

'It Tastes Good With The Money' is one of the best songs from the Fat White Family's third LP, 'Serfs Up', and probably one of the best things they've ever released. It's a glam-infused romp that takes in Gregorian chants (well... kinda...) and a killer spoken word piece from Baxter Dury, Domino are releasing it as a 10" with some exclusive non-album tracks, 'Waterfall' and 'Blue Hands'.

King Creosote And Jon Hopkins
Diamond Mine

Diamond Mine was an unlikely collaboration between raggedy Scottish sea shanty writer King Creosote and smooth running electronics guy Jon Hopkins. It ended up though being a high point of both their careers as the duo fitted in field recordings from Scottish coastal towns around King Creosote's emotional songwriting on an album often compared to Talk Talk's Spirit of Eden.

Remortgage your house. Do whatever you have to do (legally) to get this.

Palace Brothers
There Is No-one What Will Take Care Of You

Enter Will Oldham. Before morphing into Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy and reinventing acoustic guitar music at the end of the ‘90s, the Kentucky singer released a slew of records under the moniker Palace Brothers. For his debut LP, 1993’s There Is No-One What Will Take Care Of You, Oldham found himself accompanied by a bunch of people from Slint. However, apart from the occasional swell of distorted guitar these tracks largely eschew post-rockisms and lay down the kind of tortured balladry that Oldham’s name(s) has become a byword for down the years. Here we see There Is No-One What Will Take Care Of You reissued by Domino.

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy
I Made A Place

Ooh it's been a long while since a fully original Bonnie 'Prince' Billy album. The last one was in the middle of the Obama presidency in fact - and to think people had the wherewithal to moan about that tenancy. Now, just as the world is ending we get a proper new BPB album because he realises that there is never a right time for a new album from one of the more loved artists of his generation. Let's just celebrate him whilst he is alive and healthy.   

Hayden Thorpe
Diviner

It was commendable that the Wild Beasts split up when they did but the concern is...what will happen to the other two? The singers should be ok. I assume the low-voiced one will make a solo album in time but first out the blocks is the high-voiced one also known as Hayden Thorpe. His voice is so distinctive that it's going to sound like the Wild Beasts but a listen to early tracks reveals a soft sophistication and haunted balladry.      

King Creosote
Rocket D.I.Y.

Wee Scottish beard King Creosote aka Kenny Anderson has been a seaside-based purveyor of Scottish indie-folk for quite some time. Rocket D.I.Y was his second album and the first time he'd released a whole new set of songs (rather than raid his extremely large archives). Like a lot of his music its a delight with banjos ukelele, violins and pedal steel fleshing out his spindly fishing songs.

Patrick Watson
Wave

Wave is the sixth album by Canadian singer / songwriter Patrick Watson and first in four years. Wave is an album about loss and how quickly it can happen and how devastating that loss can be - as if being hit by a wave that wipes everything out. This subject is threaded through the album due Watson’s personal circumstances at the time - the death of his mother, the end of a relationship and his drummer leaving the band.

Blood Orange
Angel's Pulse

Oh here he is again. He gets where water won't....and stop sprawling so much on the sleeve. Sit up straight man. Maybe he has good reason to be tired as this mixtape release comes just months after his previous album proper Negro Swan. So it's being marketed as a mixtape rather than an album which seems to mean that it is an addendum of sorts to his last record - a series of sketches and ideas made in the months since. There's guests such as Toro Y Moi and Porches helping out. 

Alex Turner
Submarine (Original Songs)

Submarine was the debut film from actor and director Richard Ayoade. The coming of age drama was a perfect vehicle for a soundtrack by Arctic Monkeys Alex Turner. Showcasing a more mature and reflective side to his songwriting, these six mostly acoustic offerings point the way towards his future work as part of the Last Shadow Puppets. As always lyrically dextrous, this is an overlooked but essential part of his back catalogue. 

One True Pairing
One True Pairing

Following lead singer Hayden Thorpe’s first solo effort Diviner earlier this year, now it’s the turn of co-vocalist Tom Fleming to make a musical statement following the split of Wild Beasts in 2018. A self-titled offering under the name One True Pairing, it’s radically different to most of what you’d associate with Fleming, full of dissonant guitars and political soul-searching that he describes as “neo-heartland rock”.

Georgia
About Work The Dancefloor

About Work The Dancefloor by Georgia is euphoric electro-pop that defines the ecstacy of dancing the night, and the early morning, away. It mirrors Georgia’s own experiences with club culture and showcases her ability to blend her influences into a concise dancefloor banger. Includes a remix by The Black Madonna. On Domino.

(Sandy) Alex G
House of Sugar

He just gets better and better. From lo-fi beginnings (Sandy) Alex G has slowly but surely emerged as one of the best songwriters of his generation. 2017's superb Rocket added a fascinating experimental bent to his songs and was a multi-faceted unpredictable riot of sound. Early indications for House of Sugar are of further warm country-tinged songs with nods towards Elliott Smith and Lou Barlow but complete as always with Alex G's wistful, autumnal melancholy.

Bill Ryder-Jones
Yawny Yawn

Bill Ryder-Jones’ 2018 LP Yawn was a fine set of epic ballads in that sort of Richard Hawley/Bill Callahan/Elbow tradition. On Yawny Yawn we find the former member of The Coral stripping back the tunes of Yawn to the bare essentials - just piano, voice and a few wisps of ambient electronics. This tender treatment allows the stark beauty of Ryder-Jones’ music to come into even sharper focus.

Nérija
Blume

Domino's turn to get a slice of the 2019 London jazz scene pie. Nérija feature the already legendary saxophonist Nubya Garcia along side an ensemble of six other musicians. Blume, their debut album, is an incredibly vibrant and lovely work, that gets close to capturing how captivating the band are in the flesh.

Robert Wyatt
Shleep

There are many musicians who I wish would retire but one of them isn't Robert Wyatt.  Therefore it's a real shame that he is to make no more music. Instead let's be grateful that there is a large back catalogue to trawl through. 'Shleep' is his 1997 album which at that point was his first in six years. As always it's a glorious and eccentric work. He's one of the few people who can have Paul Weller guesting and yet it still doesn't put you off.

Amazing that this ever happened but now that (presumably) there'll be no more music to come from the Fall then it's well worth revisiting this collaboration between ace ranter Mark E Smith and Mouse on Mars.

Porches
Pool

Songs about settling down always worry me. It's can't be easy to find inspiration about a trip to IKEA to get a new bedside cabinet. However, settling is apparently what this album is about.

Can You Really Find Me

Minneapolis duo, Night Moves, were likened to The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev and Band of Horses when they hit town with their debut album Colored Emotions back in 2012. Their music was based on classic American pop and rock - Beach Boys, Fleetwood Mac, Todd Rundgren - and twisted to make new cosmic shapes. Can You Really Find Me is their fourth album and finds them maturing. They’ve still got the hooks and the riffs, but now there’s an added emotional quality too.

Young Marble Giants
Colossal Youth

Young Marble Giants made just one album but it was a solid gold classic. Colossal Youth pretty much invented the fact that you could play songs slow and quietly with minimal instrumentation. It's a brilliant patchwork on clicking drum machines, ticking guitars and comical organs. Topped off of course by Alison Statton's remarkable voice. 

Peter Perrett
Humanworld

Permanently sunglassed former the Only Ones frontman Peter Perrett had not been seen for many years before he returned with 2017s  How The West Was Won and now he's back again with Humanworld which as with his previous record was recorded with the help of his two sons Jamie and Peter Jr. Truly the renaissance man of post punk.

Protomartyr
No Passion All Technique

In a music industry where nothing is secret and even less is sacred, Protomartyr’s debut LP No Passion All Technique has long been a refreshing anomaly. Obviously the group are very big now, but no-one knew this back in 2012 - not them, not us, and certainly not the Urinal Cake label who released this record. A tiny run sold out, and the thing’s been neither re-pressed nor available on streaming services at any point since. This Domino reissue allows you to experience No Passion All Technique without paying megabucks for it on the vinyl black market. It’s a damn sight more raggedy than the band’s subsequent work, but the idiosyncrasies of No Passion All Technique work in its favour. Come and see how the post-punk band we deserve ended up like this.

Precisely like the little green things on the front cover, the contents of Animal Collective’s eighth album are continuously lurching to and fro no matter what you do. Hang on tight!

Rustin Man
Drift Code

Oh Talk Talk where art thou? With Mark Hollis last seen in the early 2000s trying to learn the clarinet this most brilliant and influential bands has been on hold. However not all is lost. Bassist Paul Webb aka Rustin Man is back with a new LP. His previous one was in collaboration with Portishead's Beth Gibbons. Here he goes it alone.

Nérija
Nérija EP

Domino grab a piece of the London jazz action by signing up group Nérija. The septet - which features celebrated young saxophonist Nubya Garcia, among others - showcase an energetic and soulful sound on this eponymous debut EP. Cuts like ‘The Fisherman’ and ‘Valleys’ are reminiscent of Tony Allen’s recent Blue Note output. Elsewhere on Nérija the band show their range with ‘For You’, a number that swells from bluesy ballad to a free-noise climax ala John Coltrane.

Avey Tare
Cows On Hourglass Pond

Clearly unwilling to be upstaged by Panda Bear, Avey Tare is going toe to toe with his Animal Collective buddy by also releasing a solo LP in early 2019. As with Tare’s 2017 album Eucalyptus, Cows On Hourglass Pond finds him drawing once more on AnCo’s golden mid-period. There’s plenty of Feels and Sung Tongs to this, and that’s something we should always be grateful for.

Stephen Malkmus
Groove Denied

We've all had mid-life crisis moments. For example, my dad sold the family car and bought himself a motorbike. This album is most likely Stephen Malkmus's mid-life crisis moment. For many musicians a mid-life crisis moment sees them embracing electronica and IDM after years of chugging along with guitars. So this could be as good/bad as Bob Mould's 'Modulate' album.   

Arctic Monkeys
Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair

Thankfully Domino keep these Arctic Monkeys 7"s in print  - each a little essential part of their history. We were all worried about Arctic Monkeys at this stage thinking they'd lost their personas and gone down a Queens of the Stone Age-produced vacuum but with the benefit of hindsight and that they got out the other side it seems somewhat clearer what they were doing. Features non LP B side I.D.S.T.

Panda Bear
Buoys

Escaped Animal Collective animal Panda Bear, known to his handlers as Noah Lennox, arrives at album six with Domino. An exercise “hyper-modern production” techniques with Person Pitch collaborator Rusty Santos, Buoys finds ol’ Pand subjecting his schtick of characteristically queasy crooners to mainstream studio pastiche. Smashing.

SASAMI
SASAMI

Debut album from SASAMI, the very exciting Los Angeles based indie rock songwriter. Written partly while on tour with Cherry Glazer, SASAMI's song are a painful but necessary look inward that everyone can learn from. Melodic but restrained, and with instrumentation that can veer between the more dreamy and the more rocky. On Domino. 

James Yorkston
The Route To The Harmonium

I love to think about James Yorkston's daily life  - tinkering around in his attic with his vintage instruments at his disposal, the distant sound of the sea just with in earshot. He recorded the whole of this new album in said space but later got in...guess who?...David Wrench to have a listen and make some suggestions. The result is a deeply personal treasure trove of songs exemplifying Yorkston at the peak of his craft.

Buzzcocks
Time's Up

The Buzzcock’s legendary 1976 demos, now known as Time’s Up and originally only available as bootlegs, capture all the shambling, deadpan and violent joys of punk’s first wave. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the band’s first EP, Domino are bringing these joys back to heavyweight vinyl LP (with download code) and CD.

Robert Wyatt
Nothing Can Stop Us Now

Though he could have been seen by some as a relic from the '60s and '70s, Robert Wyatt was at his most potent in the early '80s. Taken under the wing of the left leaning Rough Trade label he produced a string of excellent singles  - all cover versions which were collected onto Nothing Can Stop Us Now. The headliner is the remarkable Top 40 hit Shipbuilding but Wyatt's take on Chic's At Last I Am Free and Billie Holiday's Strange Fruit are spine tingling.

Julia Holter
Aviary

It may well be difficult to think of a record more expansive than Julia Holter's 2015 opus 'Have You In My Wilderness' but it seems like 'Aviary' might just do it. This 15 song record explores the feeling of cacophony we feel on living in the modern world and a search for solitude and sweetness. Holter's theatrical vocals and cinematic synth work will hopefully find us all a solution.

Bill Ryder-Jones
Yawn

Former The Coral bloke Bill Ryder-Jones drops his latest solo effort via Domino. Yawn is another record of furrowed-brow indie-rock from a man who always has a lot on his mind. The often-lengthy runtimes - most of the ten tracks here are over five-minutes - give Ryder-Jones the space for slow builds and thoughtful meditations on life. Musically the LP is frequently reminiscent of Elbow, Idlewild and Frightened Rabbit.

John Cale
Music For A New Society/M:FANS

An interesting move here from John Cale, who is simultaneously re-releasing and re-interpreting his 1982 album Music For A New Society. The new version, M:FANS, is unlikely to be confused with the original, as it is laden with very modern electronic production, often coming through as a weird kind of R&B. This 2CD release has both versions. On Domino.

How To Dress Well
The Anteroom

We all can laugh now at how much I hated the last How to Dress Well album but maybe Tom Krell hated it too as he's followed it up with one long piece of psychedelic music that taps into the long forgotten experimental core of his band. This could be the best or worst thing you hear all year but at least he's left that boyband stuff back in 2016.

Pram
Across The Meridian

Long-time coming, this one. After over a decade away, the ninth LP from Brummie oddballs Pram arrives via Domino. The groundwork for Across The Meridian was laid at sessions in Wales, and there is a thick seam of Welsh psychedelia that runs through the music here. Other obvious touchstones come from the English weirdo chronicles (Ghost Box Records, Oliver Postgate, that sort of thing), recent stuff like Meridian Brothers, and very much not recent stuff like interwar jazz.

Cat Power
Wanderer

Cat Power celebrates the great blues tradition of transience on her first album in six years Wanderer. It was written over the course of a couple years during which she toured, and travelled, and played. Folk and blues are fundamentally collaborative genres and Wanderer is no different, featuring old friends, and a tour mate in Lana Del Rey.

Villagers
The Art of Pretending to Swim

The return of ol' wobble voice, Conor O' Brien has sat and made this latest Villagers record all by himself in his Dublin studio. Despite this lonesome pursuit, it's an album that adds all kinds of sonic detail and soulfulness to his songwriting resulting in possibly his most accessible music to date. There's an indie's only red vinyl version that comes with a bonus 10" (whilst stocks last of course).

Bob Moses
Battle Lines

This is the sort of thing that happens when you let Johnny Jewel release too many records. Bob Moses - confusingly not one person but two men called Tom and Jimmy - drop their second LP via Domino. Battle Lines is full of perfectly competent synth-pop songs that remind one of Hurts. If this Norman Records™ description writer were a GCSE Music invigilator he would give it a high B for style, a low B for performance and a C for composition.

Blood Orange
Negro Swan

Devonte Hynes has explored punk in his teens with Test Icicles, orchestral pop under the name of Lightspeed Champion, and as Blood Orange, perhaps his most successful and critically acclaimed project, he has made four albums underpinned by R’n’B and electronica. Negro Swan, his latest, explores depression - his own and other people's - along with the anxieties suffered by LGBT community and people of colour. LP and CD on Domino.
