Jade Bird
Jade Bird

Jade Bird was born in 1997, which makes this particular blurbist* feel quite old. She hails from Hexham near Newcastle, but was lucky enough to record her debut EP, Something American in Upstate New York. She has now made her self-titled debut album, no doubt buoyed by the inclusion in her band of Jeff Buckley drummer Matt Johnson and Mystery Jets guitarist Will Rees and support slots with First Aid Kit and London Grammar. Legendary producer Tony Visconti has also praised her talent. LP and CD on Glassnote. *One who writes short product descriptions for Norman Records.

Jade Bird
Something American

First and limited pressing of Jade Bird's 2017 debut EP, Something American. Together with a band formed of members of The B-52's, Mystery Jets, and St. Vincent, Bird digs into challenges of relationship. This Londoner has an uncanny ability to capture the yearning in Americana to express exactly what she needs.

IDER
Learn To Let Go / Body Love

Guess it's been a while since you needed physical records to become the next big thing. Two-girls-from-North-London duo IDER have been causing digital ripples on the interblogs since they released Sorry way back in 2016. Now they've decided to join the cult of actual vinyl with their first ever physical release, featuring smooth and gentle electronic singles Learn To Let Go and Body Love, as well as two accompanying remixes.

Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear
The Radio Winners

A mother-and-son duo here, which isn’t something you see every day. Mama Bear - the mum of the duo, if that wasn’t obvious enough - strums a nice guitar while her handsome son Madisen Ward intones in a manner similar to Ray LaMontagne and Iron & Wine. New EP The Radio Winners is embellished with strings and drums and various other Baroque niceties. There’s a lot of whistling on it, but you can skip those bits. The rest is pretty good.

Childish Gambino
Awaken, My Love!

Vinyl release of Childish Gambino’s third album, which was released at the end of 2016. Polymath that he is, Donald Glover ditches his project’s characteristic rapping to croon his way through an ambitious funk effort that resembles 70s R&B more than his own previous work. Standard vinyl LP on Glassnote.

Baio
Man Of The World

Baio, aka Chris Baio of Vampire Weekend, presents his second solo album, which, from its sleeve art presentation to its songwriting and production, dives straight into the shiny-sheened aesthetics of the 1980’s. Baio is obviously having fun here, with bright and lovely melodies backed up with pastel-coloured keyboards, guitar licks and multi-tracked vocals. Out on Glassnote.

Flo Morrissey
Pages Of Gold

Pages of Gold is the new single by Flo Morrissey. She has recently taken her brand of ethereal folkish pop around the UK supporting The Staves and is about to tour the U.S. with Ibeyi. She will be back in the UK to promote her forthcoming album, Tomorrow Will Be Beautiful, whilst supporting Tobias Jesso Jr. Coupling herself with these credible pop acts is a smart move as her music is likely to appeal to their fans.

Flo Morrissey & Matthew E. White
Gentlewoman Ruby Man

Two of modern indie’s more genteel crooners come together for a bunch of covers old and new. James Blake, Frank Ocean, Frankie Valli and other disparate forces are rounded up for some Carolling here. The sonic palette is lush and pleasant - The Mamas and the Papas come to mind, though that might be something to do with White’s hair. Anyway, this is a very nice piece with which to stave off January blues.

Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam
I Had A Dream That You Were Mine

This titanic super-duo of indie pop feelings-havers contains one Walkmen frontman and one Vampire Weekend songwriter -- Hamilton Leithauser is the former and Rostam Batmanglij the latter. With Leithhauser's band dissolving as Batmanglij quit his, the duo got together to write songs in grandiose baroque stylings, much in the mould of Leithauser's recent solo material. I Had a Dream That You Were Mine is a serene collection of newly-styled old fashioned, with "A 1000 Times", its lead single, a pulpy love song romp.

Half Moon Run
Sun Leads Me On

Can we call this post-Biffy Clyro? Post Temper Trap? Perhaps not, but that’s sure to put you in the ballpark. Sun Leads Me On is the second album from Canadian band Half Moon Run. It’s heart on sleeve stuff that’s sure to do obscenely well at the summer festivals. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Glassnote.

Oberhofer
Chronovision

Brooklyn-based indie rockers Oberhofer ride the wave of success, generated by first album Time Capsules II, with their sophomore effort Chronovision. Home to the likes of Phoenix and Chvrches, Glassnote seems a comfortable home for these surf rock revivalists. Rad sounds for fans of Best Coast and Wavves. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Glassnote.

Baio
The Names

It’s the season of solo projects here at Norman Records. Known as the bass-player for upbeat rockers Vampire Weekend, Baio has released a few catchy EPs. Now he’s treating us to a proper full-length album, which navigates the outskirts of poppy electronics. The Names combines those explorations to create a satisfying and accessible listening experience.

Holychild
The Shape Of Brat Pop To Come

Self-described experimental and political pop from duo Holychild. Giving themselves the title brat pop, The Shape Of Brat Pop To Come reveals itself as a sort of ironic tribute to Katy B with a glut of US social commentary thrown into the mix. It’s nothing if not catchy and certainly radio friendly. Out on vinyl LP from Glassnote.

Son Lux
Bones

Founded by New York resident Ryan Lott, Son Lux has morphed from a solo endeavour into a three-piece, crafting kaleidoscopic post-pop. Bones is the fourth LP under the name and revels in a laptop heavy environment that’s simultaneously stylish and full of joyous colour. Out on CD and vinyl LP from Glassnote.

Flo Morrissey
Tomorrow Will Be Beautiful

Flo Morrissey’s press release boasts that she is “causing a stir amongst the hip and cool press”, but don’t let that put you off. Her debut album Tomorrow Will Be Beautiful is convincingly led by her potent voice, suggesting mystery and weighty emotional engagement. Ten tracks, on the Glassnote label.

Phoenix
Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix

Phoenix’s Lisztomania was the sound of the summer in 2009; the poppy, indie, feel-good track just perfect for having a right good dance to. The album is a treat for anyone hoping for a lesson in alternative rock joy. This French band really know how to hit all the right buttons, and even better, the right notes.

Holy Child
Happy With Me

Holy Child are a bombastic electronic outfit from Washington DC, made up of Liz Nistico -- who punches her way through songs with her forceful and occasionally reflective vocals -- and Louie Diller. "Happy With Me" is a straight-shooter of a track, full of little vocal harmonies, relentless percussion and a very silly synth line. Originally released on their 'Mindspeak EP', the song is now available as a 7" single. At times so in-your-face it feels like dance-punk, and at other times sweeter than PC Music's electronic ticks, this song goes all over the place and lands all the right hooks.
