The Hecks
My Star

Chicago group The Hecks are back on Trouble In Mind (Ultimate Painting, Omni) for their third LP My Star. The band have expanded to a four-piece for this record, a move that gives them greater control over their helter-skelter indie-rock sound. As such, My Star contains some of the tautest, peppiest work yet - tracks like ‘So 4 Real’ are the sort of jerky post-punk we heard a lot of in the years after Is This It. Frankly, here at Chateau Norman it’s a sound we could roll with all day and all night.

Parsnip
When The Tree Bears Fruit

You know Giggs? Yes, as in the rapper. Nowadays he’s all about drinking cinnamon tea with Drake, but back at the start of the career he was a proper hard-nosed MC who made tough, nasty street-rap. However, because he came from England rather than the United States, his bars were also full of the humorous everyday tit-for-tat one found in grime. One of his early singles, 2008’s ‘Uummm!’, is notable for two reasons. The first is that it cemented one of Giggs’ catchphrases, which is basically him just grunting loudly on-beat ('uhhngh!'). The second is that features an all-time great lyric; ‘Hollow Meets Blade and that Ard sh*t/Came up from the dirt like a parsnip’. ‘Came up from the dirt like a parsnip’ is the sort of thing that lodges in your brain for life and influences all of your subsequent interactions with the word ‘parsnip’. As such, it’s hard for this Norman Records™ chum-swiller to listen to 'When The Tree Bears Fruit', the debut LP from Australian band Parsnip, with fresh ears. Sure, this is an album of charming twee-punk in the vein of Girlpool or The Courtneys. Yeah, songs like ‘Lift Off!’ render positivity in melody in a manner that Jonathan Richman would be proud of. Of course, it’s a winning opening gambit from a group that we’re rooting for. But you know what? On every single one of these indie-pop ditties I’m just waiting for someone to barge up to the mic, shout out the SN1 crew and then launch into a verse of Dracula-voiced gutter-rap. And until we get Giggs to reprise his verse from ‘Uummm!’ over one of Parsnip’s summery jangles, this Norman Records™ text-chump won’t be able to sleep easy in his bed. Parsnip, Hollowman, you know what to do. Uhhngh!

Omni
Multi-task

Omni's debut 'Deluxe' was one of those records which seeped rather than marched into your consciousness. The fact that we sell a copy seemingly on a daily basis exemplifies it's popularity. The band have the nimble fleet fingered sound of fellow Athens group Pylon and in guitarist Frankie Broyles they have an ex Deerhunter nimble on the fretwork.  This second LP expands their musical palette whilst keeping their minimalist agit-pop sound intact.   

Possible Humans
Everybody Split

It’s been an achingly long six-year wait for Melbourne’s Possible Humans to deliver their debut album Everybody Split. Indeed, when it was announced on April Fool’s Day 2019, many assumed it was a joke. But the quintet delivered a brilliant record, encompassing all the best reference points in DIY/underground history.

David Nance Group
Peaced and Slightly Pulverized

Of all the things I’ve heard in recent times, Peaced and Slightly Pulverized may be the most American. David Nance (from David Nance Band-fame) is a guy from Omaha who makes rock songs with mildly-country harmonics, whaling guitar solos and titles like Ham Sandwich. Recommended if you like America or have trouble choosing from lunch menus.

Olden Yolk
Living Theatre

Olden Yolk hit us square in the eye with their self titled debut last year. Some lovely watery sounds there.. I'm talking the Feelies and early Yo La Tengo you know. So all is set for their second album proper which has seen the former Quilt duo relocate to sunny Los Angeles where the warm day vibes with hopefully infiltrate their guitar pop sound.

The Resonars
No Exit

No Exit is the 7th album by Tuscon, Arizona band, The Resonars. Whilst there’s definitely a whiff of Oasis about this, there’s a stronger sense of the glorious vocal harmonies and melodies of bands such as The Hollies and Big Star. The band is a vehicle for the songwriting talents of Matt Rendon. He has also released a one-off psychedelic album under the name Butterscotch Cathedral. On Trouble In Mind.

Sparrow Steeple
Tin Top Sorcerer

Charmingly shambolic garage rock set in the world of fantasy? It happens! Tin Top Sorcerer is a project from Sparrow Steeple, who are three of the members of Strapping Fieldhands. It takes the sinister and psychedelic that lies at the heart of all fairy tales and transfigures it (like a wizard!!) into something you can move your body to.

  • Trouble In Mind

FACS
Lifelike

‘Lifelike’, the second album from Chicago-based trio FACS - a group formed in the wake of band Disappears - has its heart in the ongoing legacy of post-punk, comprised of bass riffage and effect tamperings, it’s a music which strips away and then plays around with what's left, minimal but purposeful and open with an attention placed as highly on tone as on might.

Estrogen Highs
Hear Me On The Number Station

'Hear Me On The Number Station' is Estrogen Highs first record since 'Irrelevant Future' in 2012. Here the New Haven, Connecticut, beat combo bash out eighteen songs, each informed by New Zealand indie pop and with more emphasis of the avant garde texturing of bands like Xpressway than previously. The LP comes with an inner lyrics sleeve.

Sunwatchers
Illegal Moves

Anybody looking for psyched-out rock with a hint of free jazz and a ton of organ can get their fill here with the new Sunwatchers album. Illegal Moves hosts the usual jams approaching the excessive, left-field chord progressions, and endless solos (both guitar and organ), but also some slightly more meditative tunes -- at least in comparison to the proper noisy stuff. 

Writhing Squares
Out Of The Ether

Writhing Squares put out their second LP ‘Out of The Ether’ via Trouble In Mind following a debut on Siltbreeze - a label known for underground legends like Harry Pussy, The Shadow Ring and The Dead C. Writhing Squares sound here has this churning psyche quality, topped off with spaced-out guitar fuzzery and squawks of sax. It’s a satisfying fusion of various underground strands, from the squelchier end of industrial to Hawkind-esque jam rituals.   

Klaus Johann Grobe
Du bist so symmetrisc

In case anyone was wondering, this is a group not a man (like a Swiss version of Danny Wilson I guess). They play the sort of mixture of pulsing kraut inspired electronics and wild psych moves that you will enjoy if you like people like Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Cavern of Anti Matter. They throw a few dance moves and mutant funk in too. Let's kraut boogie.

  • Trouble In Mind

Rays
You Can Get There From Here

Hailing from Oakland, California, Rays have diluted their sonic power, but not their quality, a little by borrowing from the UK ‘80s DIY scene. Influences such as Television Personalities, Cleaners From Venus and Dolly Mixture have shaped the band’s second album, You Can’t Get There From Here. LP or CD on Trouble In Mind.

Mountain Movers
Pink Skies

I thought the album art was a number of lollipops, it isn't. It's a number of trees that look like lollipops. Yes there is a pretty big difference. Pink Skies is the latest record by Mountain Movers and is available on a limited pink vinyl LP (that you're only going to get from indie stores) and on black vinyl LP. Released on Trouble In Mind. 

Omni
Deluxe

Featuring former members of Deerhunter, post-punk outfit Omni hail from Atlanta, Georgia. The band combine über-precise beats and riffs with laid back Talking Heads style vocals. Recorded in the bands own practice space by Carnivores' Nathaniel Higgins, you can stay old school with the traditional black vinyl, or, for the more adventurous, why not try the purple?

The Shifters
Have A Cunning Plan

A big part of any Australian indierock band is making sure you don't care too much about things. The Shifters nailed that part, but got their act together just enough to produce a hi-fi full-length debut. And we’re happy for it. Have a Cunning Plan boasts a bunch of rattling indierock jams, just in time for your Indian Summer.
  • Label(s):
  • Trouble In Mind

Ethers
Ethers

Ethers are a supergroup. Well, to those who are au fait with the Chicago indie rock scene they are, anyway. They are made up from members of Radar Eyes, Heavy Times and Outer Minds. Their brand of mid-fi, hook-heavy indie recalls band such as Royal Headache, Reigning Sound and The Feelies. LP and CD on Trouble In Mind.

En Attendant Ana
Lost and Found

Trouble In Mind (Ultimate Painting, Mikal Cronin) present the debut LP from insouciant Gallic group En Attendant Ana. The band hit on a good formula on Lost And Found, bringing together those early rock and punk styles that the French are so fond of with shoegaze, jangle-pop ala C86 and just a dash of chansons. This quintet have produced ten tracks that are both wistful and welcoming. One of these will likely crop up in the next Richard Linklater flick.

Negative Scanner
Nose Picker

Chicago based four-piece Negative Scanner bring their sophomore album Nose Picker to us through Trouble in Mind. Rowdy, lo-fi, and filled with a snarling joy Nose Picker hits the ground running with opening track T.V. and doesn’t let up. DIY or die attitude (all their stuff is recorded in their practice room) and a directness that fans of Sleaford Mods will certainly enjoy.

Peter Stringer-Hye
Sunday Girls EP

Nashville resident Peter Stringer-Hye has played in groups like D. Watusi and The Paperhead in the past. But now, he thinks he’s ready to strike out alone, with the Sunday Girls EP. It sounds as perfectly of a certain strain of 1960’s blues-folk-rock as his publicity photos might suggest. Edition of 500 7” singles on Trouble In Mind.

Matchess
Sacracorpa

Sacracorpa concludes Matchess’s trilogy of trauma-tackling dreamlike healing music. The album is grounded in both the alien desert spaces of New Mexico and the alien urban space of La Monte Young’s Dream House, with viola, organ and voice all considerably treated with tape and paired with field recordings. The results are really quite captivating, and may prove as healing for you as for Matchess.

Connections
Foreign Affairs

Trouble in Mind welcomes Columbus, Ohio indie rock quintet Connections (former members of 84 Nash) with their fifth record Foreign Affairs. The album is decidedly pleasanter and more interesting than the sequence of words “Connections - Foreign Affairs” might suggest. Right down to the mucky late 1980s-style cover art, it’s a charming, lo-fi DIY affair.

The Love-Birds
In The Lover's Corner

Here's a weird thing. This record by these San Fran power poppers has been mastered by Norman Blake from Teenage Fanclub. Nice of him to get involved but I never had him down as a mastering engineer. Could he be the Taylor Dupree of guitar pop? Anyway his name gives a fair idea of where this is coming from. Crystalline guitar pop reminiscent of all your '90s favourites.

  • Trouble In Mind

Matchess
Somnaphoria

Limited to 500 copies on coloured 12” vinyl from Trouble in Mind. Break-away experimental solo project from Chicago based Whitney Johnson (Verma). Soothing and explorative mixing of classical music and modern electronica elements, with tape loops, oscillators and violas backed by virtually-not-there ghostly vocals. If you like Brian Eno, Julianna Barwick, and Grouper this is for you.

Holograma
Waves

This bright collection of electronic textures -- sustained in the background, restless and ever-moving in the foreground -- comes from Fancisco Borjra, known proudly as Holograma on his newest release. A one man band (but with electronics rather than percussion and a harmonica), Borja sets ambient soundscapes in the back and then lets his melodies run loose, incorporating tinny drum machines to keep a forward-thinking rhythm going. This is euphoric electronica that recalls the celebratory collages of Pop Winds.
  • Label(s):
  • Trouble In Mind

FACS
Negative Houses

Formed from the ashes of Disappears, Chicago group FACS come through with their debut LP for Trouble In Mind Records (Ultimate Painting, Negative Scanner). The trio create an almighty racket on Negative Houses. Sky-scraping reverbs recall golden-era My Bloody Valentine, but the lumbering post-punk grooves and screes of guitar invoke This Heat and PiL.

Olden Yolk
Olden Yolk

New York duo Olden Yolk, perhaps named after what you’d find in the egg of an olden oose, are joined by a cast of additional musicians for their debut LP. Contemporary unease and urban experience inform these canny numbers, but the band renders them in a gentle and disarming Woodstock-psych sixties style.
  • Label(s):
  • Trouble In Mind

Salad Boys
This Is Glue

Salad Boys impressed with their debut, Metalmania, back in 2015. A mere three years later the New Zealanders return with their second album, This Is Glue. It’s everything Metalmania was but more so - the hooks are hookier and their approach to the album is a more mature one. This is all good news for fans of REM, The Bats, The Clean, Yo La Tengo, The Feelies and Ultimate Painting, because this is a record you will like. If you act quickly you can get a limited edition powder pink coloured vinyl version, otherwise it’s black vinyl or CD.

Sunwatchers
II

A completely bombastic, globe trotting psychedelic journey with a spiritual home in Brooklyn. This outfit smash together wah and skronk, liquid bass and driving rhythms to create hypercolour, throwback rock action. Perfect bleached out hits for fans of Sun City Girls, African psyche and heaven knows what else.

Dick Diver
Melbourne, Florida

Plenty of intermediate New Wave punks on this one, all of them adept at wringing a good pop melody out of a burst of anger. Dick Diver features members of the irreplaceable Australian post-punkers Total Control, as well as UV Racer alum; the simply titled Melbourne, Florida alludes to the sounds of those bands but has a sweeter, more straight-forward sound, stringing itself to the clean chords of Television and the bounciness of a chill new indie rock band.

Klaus Johann Grobe
Spagat der Liebe

High quality Deutsche-language grooves from Klaus Johann Grobe, a band who specialise in summer-night dance pop. Spagat der Liebe, their second album, shimmers and shakes even more than the first one did, while simultaneously showing off its links to the komische-synth tradition. Released by Trouble In Mind.

Ultimate Painting
Dust On My Eyes

Well this is nice. It’s two totally exclusive unavailable elsewhere tracks from pretty darn nice indie-poppers Ultimate Painting. We already know them from such albums as last years ‘Dusk’ where we found that  their charming understated indie rarely fails to satisfy. Lovely stuff. 

Mountain Movers
Mountain Movers

A little bit melancholic and a little bit thought provoking, s/t. is the latest release from  Mountain Movers. A band that started from a small and quiet affair, that have blossomed into a piece of well earned art on the indie-rock hidden gems wall of fame. A cracking addition to their rapidly growing arsenal of music that is available on Vinyl LP.

Jack Cooper
Sandgrown

As his debut solo record, comprised of 9 gorgeous tracks, Sandgrown is the hometown-inspired creation of British experimentalist Jack Cooper. Whilst Blackpool provided the specific inspiration for this evocative piece, the nostalgia is universal and is designed to move individuals from any corner of the world.

Doug Tuttle
Peace Potato

The third full length solo venture from Wildildlife and Mmoss member Doug Tuttle. Performing and recording the entire album himself at home, Peace Potato is chocka with Beatles charm, George Harrison in particular, and summer afternoon dream state bliss. On black or indie only coloured vinyl or CD from Trouble In Mind.

Greg Ashley
Pictures of Saint Paul Street

With a career spanning back into the 90s through the moniker of several bands, including The Strate-Coats, The Gris-Gris and The Mirrors, Greg Ashley has no intention of stopping yet. Pictures of Saint Paul Street is his latest venture, and one that critiques modern day society under the guise of solid folk songwriting.
  • Label(s):
  • Trouble In Mind

Rays
Rays

Rays are an Antipodean garage post-punk outfit making their debut with this self-titled full-length. They have the thrusting heft of Australian punk rock, but also the indie-pop-melodic sensibility of the New Zealand Flying Nun guys, and boy, what a combination it makes. Rays is released by Trouble In Mind.
  • Label(s):
  • Trouble In Mind

The Paperhead
Chew

Nashville trio The Paperhead craft a deliciously off-centre brew of familiar acoustic backings, over which a rich palette of instrumental splashings lean in and out. This, their latest in a neat handful of albums, is reminiscent of Van Morrison’s more direct offerings, with a slightly melancholic Moody Blues swagger.

The Paperhead
Africa Avenue

Psychedelic students The Paperhead continue to pay their respects to the rock 'n' roll of the 1960s on 'Africa Avenue', playing their fuzzed-up guitars and acoustic strums like their hair is doing most of the work. It's their most directly pop work as a band yet, though the band still want you to think they're totally weird, so bring in some country fever and even brandish a harpsichord at one point.
  • Label(s):
  • Trouble In Mind

Ultimate Painting
Dusk

Ultimate Painting are a laid back duo of Jack Cooper and James Hoare who sound like if they have a plan it is to make a distinctly English version of the kind of fresh as a breeze guitar tunes the Velvet Underground blueprinted on their third album. Indeed this is the third record from our heroic duo and once again it has been recorded onto tape in one of their flats.  Expect alluringly lush guitar pop and stellar songwriting chops. 

Ultimate Painting
Ultimate Painting

A collaboration between Jack Cooper & James Hoare of Mazes & Veronica Falls fame, respectively. Sharing the songwriting evenly between the pair, they craft some fine, Velvet Underground-esque indie rock ranging from the chilled to the pumping. A great combination of the lads intertwining vocals and jangling guitars.

Chook Race
Around The House

Young Australians Chook Race will pump you up with their speedy guitar energy whilst simultaneously relaxing you with the comforts of their sound. It's no critique to say that Around The House feels familiar: it has all the trappings of jangly DIY indie pop music á la Flying Nun, and that just feels right. Out on Trouble In Mind.

The Hecks
The Hecks

The Hecks have a whole world of alt and avant-rock styles under their belt, and they deploy what they know with real aplomb. This self-titled album often feels like some vintage Sonic Youth, with just the right balance between indie-poppy songcraft and flared-up noisiness. A trio that will surely go far. CD / LP / Coloured LP on Trouble In Mind.

Beef Jerk
Tragic

Australians Beef Jerk offer up their debut full-length for widespread commercial release following a self-release last year. Tragic sounds precisely zero like the sleek, clean kitchen units on the sleeve look: nope, this is jumpy, jaunty indie pop, with occasional dips into heavyweight lyrical subject matter. Out on Trouble In Mind.

Alto!
LP 3

Alto! are a band of Portland’s finest, with 2 drummers and a guitarist who has played with the brothers Alan and Richard Bishop. They tend to get into some messed-up gnarly jams, with afro psych-tinged guitar licks and layers of polyrhythms. LP3 is their first release away from their own label, presented by Trouble In Mind.
  • Label(s):
  • Trouble In Mind

Dick Diver
New Start Again

New Start Again is the debut full-length album of Australians Dick Diver. First released in 2011 by Melbourne’s Chapter Music, it’s now being reissued on Trouble In Mind. The sound is a sunny, rambling kind of indie pop: touches of 90’s slackerism but fronted by distinctly Australian-accented vocals. CD and LP editions.
  • Label(s):
  • Trouble In Mind

Doug Tuttle
It Calls On Me

It Calls On Me is the second solo album by Doug Tuttle. It follows on from his 2013 eponymous debut and his work with New Hampshire psych-rock outfit Mmoss, a band who shared members with Woods. On It Calls On Me, Tuttle leaves behind the anxious, unrequited love themes of his debut and concentrates on delivering some delicious, hazy psych-pop. Available as limited indies only coloured vinyl, standard vinyl and CD, on Trouble In Mind.

Chuck Johnson
Velvet Arc

Chuck Johnson is an american guitarist who has honed his sound and perfected his modernist American fingerpicking style over two albums: 2013’s Crows In The Basilica and 2015’s Blue Moon Boulder. His latest offering, Velvet Arc, sees him returning to areas he traversed in bands such as Idyll Swords and Spatula. He has surrounded himself with musicians of a similar mind to help create his vision. The album opens with Americana-infused raga guitar and shows why Johnson is a famed fingerpicker throughout.

Verma
Mul.apin

Psychedelic rock from Chicago. Verma were apparently so inspired by the ancient Babylonian map of the cosmos named the Mul.apin that they used to it guide their compositional process; even if that mainly translates to “make space-rock”. It did also lead them to give double titles to each track here as well though. On Trouble In Mind.

Chris Forsyth & Koen Holtkamp
The Island

The sleeve art to Chris Forsyth & Koen Holtkamp’s new record The Island gives you a good impression of what they achieve here. Over four tracks, the pair’s synths and guitars recline into a warm haze of sunset ambience. The two play off each other with lots of nice details, but all in service of the music’s blissful vibe. On Trouble In Mind.
  • Label(s):
  • Trouble In Mind

Primitive Parts
Parts Primitive

Tight little garage rock trio from London here, with constituent parts taken from Sauna Youth, Male Bonding and Monotony. That kind of pedigree unsurprisingly makes Primitive Parts a strong proposition, and their almost self-titled debut Parts Primitive serves ten slices of their bouncy sound. On Trouble In Mind.

Salad Boys
Metalmania

DIY indie pop in that rich New Zealand tradition, that’s what we have here with Salad Boys. The album title, Metalmania, is a bit of a misnomer really. This debut full-length is a fleet-footed thing, bouncing poppy melodies along over a guitar / rhythm section churn. Satisfying stuff. Released by Trouble In Mind.

Pridjevi
Pridjevi

Pridjevi are a Croatian crew, formed of three songwriters who have audibly psychedelic interests. Sung entirely in Croatian (good thing too), this self-titled debut is a lovely whirling thing, hypnotising listeners with circular rhythms, acid rock guitars, and a haze of indefinable background sound. On Trouble In Mind.
  • Label(s):
  • Trouble In Mind

Ultimate Painting
Green Lanes

Ultimate Painting is a bit of a side project, taking up the personal time of Jack Cooper of Mazes and James Hoare of Veronica Falls. Here on Green Lanes they get to kick back a little from the driving indie-rock formula, making low-key lyrically-focused tracks until the cows come home. Out on Trouble In Mind.

Negative Scanner
Negative Scanner

Confident, snarling post-punk debut from Chicago band Negative Scanner. Known for their blistering live performances, the self titled album captures this intensity in a 28 minute whirlwind. Recorded in their own practice space it’s a truly DIY effort. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Trouble In Mind. Includes download code.

Espectrostatic
Escape From Witchtropolis

Alex Cuervo could start a no frills garage punk outfit as quickly as you could put two pieces of bread in a toaster, but his Espectrostatic project has taken a lot more tinkering and thinking through. Here, he takes his love of synth music and tries to get in with the crew, hoping his electronic, Kraut-influenced drones will be good enough to get framed. 'Escape From Witchtropolis' is a fascinating experiment from an artist who's loved the sounds of Tangerine Dream and motorik acts for years but only recently found the confidence to honour them.
  • Label(s):
  • Trouble In Mind

Hiiragi Fukuda
Seacide

Two sides of cool improvised jams from Hiiragi Fukuda, one with guitar and one with a monophonic synth. A fun and playful sound, grabbed with whatever equipment was to hand, that also digs deep into spacey vibes. Seacide was first sighted on a limited cassette, so this proper vinyl / CD release on Trouble In Mind is most welcome.
  • Label(s):
  • Trouble In Mind

Matchess
Seraphastra

This was originally released on tape by Digitalis and has now found itself released on vinyl. This is the solo project of Whitney Houston, singer & keyboardist for Chicago band VERMA. Houston's minimilist work owes as much to underground Berlin techno as it does to early experimenters  Throbbing Gristle & Cabaret Voltaire, placing Houston in league with counterparts like Zola Jesus & Liz Harris (Grouper). Sorry its Whitney Johnson...not Houston. my mistake. Just 300 copies of this and sounds rather super.

Germ House
Showing Symptoms

Dividing time between Las Cruces, NM & Boston, Justin Hubbard & Tara McManus (MR. AIRPLANE MAN & TURPENTINE BROTHERS) recorded "Germ House" w/Matt Rendon (RESONARS), providing a deranged amalgam of candidly direct & distinctive melodies drizzled atop ragged, lo-fi punk testimonials. Herein lies the uncomfortable duality of Germ House's album - a fascinating suite of tunes that are balancing with equal measure both the melodic & discordant.

Krakatau
Water Near a Bridge

Australian band Krakatau’s debut “Water Near A Bridge” seemingly have their origins before recorded history, emerging from the primordial ooze & lurching towards your turntable like a creature out of Lovecraftian fiction. The guitar-less trio, Krakatau utilize organ, bass & drums to communicate their message crafting dense & heady tunes sprung from the seeds of improvisation & honed to perfection in the studio.  “Water Near A Bridge” is a vinyl-only release, pressed on 150gm black vinyl & includes a download code. The album is also available digitally via most online retailers, but we recommend you hear it on wax. RIYL: Agitation Free, Cluster, Popol Vuh, Godspeed! YBE, Embryo, Magma, Bitchin’ Bajas

The Paperhead
The Paperhead

The Paperhead are a group of present-day teenagers from Nashville, but one listen to the band’s eponymous debut LP and you could be forgiven for thinking they’d made this thing forty years ago. The wistful guitar strums, pinging bass tones and general air of psychedelic frippery to the tunes on The Paperhead means that you could slip them onto an old copy of Nuggets and no-one would be any the wiser. Out via Trouble In Mind (Mikal Cronin, Ty Segall).
