Room40 Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records

Thembi Soddell
Love Songs

Oh my goodness, what have I done? Hitting play on this album has been something akin to opening Pandora's box and unleashing a dark force into my home. I think I had better go hide the children under the bed before some bad dudes from the Black Lodge show up… hang on.. They’re already here…. Arghhh! I jest of course, ...view item »

Anthea Caddy/ Thembi Soddell

Room 40 have been delivering experimental music for quite some time now and if you thought they'd been quiet of late then think again as here's a new release by Aussie duo Anthea Caddy & Thembi Soddell. For their second release they're reshaping (and I quote from the press release) 'a...view item »


Oh my first non-rhythmical recording of the day from Erikm. On the ever dependable sound-art stable Room 40, this is a mad sounding disc of organic improv, insectoid scrunch, free jazz squawk and shuffle, wild-eyed primitivism and throbbing manic glitch. I always enjoy this stuff more on headphones where it isn't forcing Business Lady...view item »
