Wetware
Automatic Drawing

Norman website visitor, meet Automatic Drawing. It’s the debut LP by Wetware (Roxy Farman & Matthew Morandi). The pair first appeared on the New York industrial scene in 2015, hamming it up with intense and provocative live shows. Distilling such live energy to record can’t be easy, but they’ve nai...view item »

Coil presents Black Light District
A Thousand Lights In A Darkened Room

More Coil re-issues and this is from 1996 when  Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson and John Balance were joined by Drew McDowall but rather than being the 'poochie' of the show, the new name helped the group take a left turn back to the more avant garde pursuits and experimental electronics. ...view item »

Adult.
This Behavior

It seems like -- ooh, let's see -- at least 18 of your Earth years since this duo gave us 'Nausea', back in those heady, queasy post-millennium Electroclash days. 6 albums and countless (nearly) EPs and singles later, Nicola Kuperus and Adam Lee Miller present us with This Behavior as ADULT. All caps, full stop / p...view item »

SONOIO
Fine

A nine track release from SONOIO called Fine that draws together electronic sounds, synths and powerful vocals.. This one is available on CD, and two different versions of vinyl. The first being a limited edition, translucent green coloured vinyl LP and the other being your good old reliable black vinyl. Released on Dias. ...view item »

Merzbow + HEXA
Achromatic

It’s ya boy Masami baby! Here he is working with HEXA, who are an interesting pairing in themselves: Xiu Xiu man Jamie Stewart and Room40 boss Lawrence English. The structure is one side of Merzbow produced and mixed by HEXA...view item »

Nocturnal Projections
Inmates In Images

Brilliant but short-lived New Zealand legends Nocturnal Projections barely released an album in their lifetime (their studio recordings have been collected elsewhere as 'Complete Studio Recordings') so it's nice to see a release of these live recordings. Direct from the board, they showcase the talents of a band who, had they co...view item »

ElpH vs Coil
Worship The Glitch

More Coil!!! If you like the stuff they do on purpose but feel like you're missing out on their accidents, then this is the release for you. ElpH as it turns out is not another artist, but the name they gave to the spirit causing their equipment to glitch. And on Worship the Glitch, they do just that. ...view item »

Them Are Us Too
Amends

Them Are Us Too is the collaborative project of Kennedy Ashlyn and Cash Askew, a duo who had been sketching demos in homage to their shared younger passions of generations-old shoegaze and dream pop.Tragically, Askew died in the Ghost Ship fire of 2016 -- Kennedy returned to the studio to finish the startling, una...view item »

Nocturnal Projections
Complete Studio Recordings

Right, this is absolutely essential. Nocturnal Projections were the original post punk band of brothers Graeme and Peter Jeffries (This Kind of Punishment/The Cake Kitchen/solo) and though they never released an album in their lifetime, they deserve to be placed alongside post-punk legends such ...view item »

Tor Lundvall
A Dark Place

Tor Lundvall's 'A Dark Place' comes over a decade since the release of his previous album, and is a remarkably open work of sincerity and emotional expression. Dealing with themes of loss and the passing of time, it's also inextricably linked to the passing of his father. An honest, darkly beautiful piece of work....view item »

Tor Lundvall & John B McLemore
Tor Lundvall Presents: Witness Marks - The Works of John B. McLemore

Kind of a long story, this one, but the gist as we can surmise: Tor Lundvall is an ambient submariner as good as Gigi Mason but a fair bit more neglected. On this special entry into his catalogue he compiles works by John B. McLemore, an artist made famous by, what else, a podcast called S-Town. The po...view item »

Death of Lovers
The Acrobat

Death of Lover’s are a whole extra band from the guys behind Nothing, in which they write and perform songs that are a little bit different. This is actually their debut full-length album after several years of activity, and it shows a band clearly enjoying themselves playing with an eighties post-punk-pop...view item »

Aaron Dilloway
The Gag File

One day I received a text message from friend and former Norman Records employee Brian who was at the time at the great Tusk Festival in the North of England. It read “Aaron Fucking Dilloway! It’s like a fucking Francis Bacon painting coming to life”. Laughed my ass off. I’ve still not been...view item »

HIDE
Castration Anxiety

Dais Records give us the first LP of brutalised avant-pop from Chicago’s HIDE. Percussionist Seth Sher and visual artist Heather Gabel have crafted seven tracks of dark, intense industrialism here. The likes of ‘Wildfire’ manage to sound like both ‘Machine Gun’-era Port...view item »

Coil
Time Machines

One of the most beloved hidden gems in the Coil discog, Time Machines takes its name for and acts as an ode to a certain hallucination-inducing drug, the band working their tonal shifts into what they hoped would replicate the time-distortion inherent in its use. The record takes queues from Tibetan ...view item »

Drekka
Unbeknownst To The Participants At Hand

Drekka is an abstract musician dealing in weighty concepts of memory and passing, and Unbeknownst To The Participants At Hand gives us two substantial works over two sides of vinyl, one referencing Michael Haneke and the other melds sounds of uncertain provenance into a fragile structure. 500 copies on ...view item »

Drab Majesty
Oak Wood

Oak Wood follows up on Drab Majesty’s corker of a debut, 2015’s Careless. This 7” single is a fuzzy synth builder, with ‘80s leanings and an undeniable moody sens...view item »

Martial Canterel
Lost at Sea

Sean MacBride is also half of synthpop duo Xeno & Oaklander, but this long-running solo project has a more melancholy, introspective vibe. Rigid sequencing in the style of early Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark and Depeche Mode is lent a bit ...view item »

Drew McDowall
Collapse

Ex-Coil and Psychic TV member Drew McDowall presents his first ever solo album and it's a highly accomplished adventure in meditative electronics and unsettling atmospheres. Throughout the album McDowall demonstrates considerable skill at wrenching organic sounds fr...view item »

Choir Boy
Sunday Light

Choir Boy is not a project of an unaccompanied acappella male chorister, but the dream-pop outfit of former punk rocker Adam Klopp. Sunday Light is a bright and melancholy pair of 80’s-flavoured new romantic pop music, catchy and grand but also essentially bedroom in feel. 7” single on DAIS....view item »

William S. Burroughs
Nothing Here Now but the Recordings

Something of a lost classic, Throbbing Gristle’s Genesis P-Orridge and Peter ‘Sleazy’ Christopherson hooked up with William S. Burroughs in his infamous NY pad ‘The Bunker’ in 1980 to assemble these recordings: spoken-word, cut-up sound collages and field recordings abound. Dais Records are making i...view item »

Ragnar Grippe
Sand

This anniversarial and celebratory reissue on DAIS marks the fortieth year since the original release of Sand by Ragnar Grippe. A seminal debut that continues to be lauded by connoisseurs of minimalistic sonic expressionism. Born of the 1970’s sound/art zeitgeist and the collaborative expe...view item »

Drew McDowall
Unnatural Channel

Despite the fact that Drew McDowall has been releasing records since the early 80’s, ‘Unnatural Channel’ is only his second solo album. For the uninitiated, he’s stepped through the Psychic TV revolving door, was an official member of ...view item »

High-Functioning Flesh
Culture Cut

LA pair High Functioning Flesh present their take on the classic electro-punk sound. Their electronic body music is very much focused on the body, both in terms of getting you moving and in terms of hard-hitting body horror lyrics. Quite a juicy proposition. Culture Cut is released by DAIS, on CD and various colours of ...view item »

Annie Anxiety
Soul Possession

Check out the personnel on this one: for her 1984 debut album, Annie Anxiety managed to assemble members of Crass, African Head Charge, Flux Of Pink Indians and more, all under the production oversight of the legendary Adrian Sherwood. Soul Possession i...view item »

Italian Horn
The Bells of Spring

Not content with making a million records of his own and busying himself with so-so comeback albums, Guided By Voices' Robert Pollard has made the artwork for this record which otherwise has nothing to do with him other than sound remarkably like his early '90s heyday. Italian Horn is act...view item »

Drab Majesty
Careless

Drab Majesty is the solo project of Deb Demure, who you may have seen drumming with the band Marriages. On Careless he jams the sounds feelings of his 1980’s LA childhood into Depeche Mode-esque dark synth-pop. The vinyl is a fetching shade of black, pressed in a ...view item »

Scout Paré-Phillips
Door Left Open

Since 2015’s dark Heed The Call, Door Left Open is the follow up full length from Scout Paré-Phillips. Still just as brooding and heavy, her vocal style and songwriting kicks like a shadowed Joni Mitchell, with the sparse presence of Leonard Cohen. The Multi-instrumenta...view item »

Drab Majesty
The Demonstration

As Drab Majesty Deb Demure takes the hazy and glamorous atmospherics of 1980s synth pop, but ties it to something darker, weirder and more experimental. The Demonstration, on vinyl LP and CD from DAIS, takes this combination even further, with heavy industrial elements, fingerpicked guitar and l...view item »

Spahn Ranch
Back To The Wood

Compiled of unreleased and alternate takes from Detroit post-punk trio Spahn Ranch, comes the raw and gem-rammed release Back To The Wood. With only a limited amount of 500 Vinyl copies available, this is an essential for fans as tracks include old versions of Countdown and...view item »

The Cakekitchen
World of Sand

Coming not long after The Cakekitchen's marvellous 'Time Flowing Backwards' (also re-issued on Dais) comes 'World of Sand'. This time head man Graeme Jeffries worked with his live band and if the album doesn't quite have the magical charm of  'Time....' it has more variation and a slightly harsher sound palette. That's not to say that Jeffr...view item »

The Cakekitchen
Time Flowing Backwards

Another classic New Zealand gets a re-issue with this lovely 1991 era LP from Graeme Jeffries outfit. Jeffries had started out in ace post punkers Nocturnal Projections before forming the magnificent This Kind of Punishment with brother Peter. When the Jeffries brothers went their separate solo ways Peter seemin...view item »

Body of Light
Let Me Go

The Arizonan brothers who make up Body of Light are having a great time here emulating their (presumed) childhood heroes: Let Me Go is a full-blown synth-pop album of grand proportions, with bold drums and darkwave-influenced vocals. They’ve done such a great job that you might assume this was a 1980’s reiss...view item »

Youth Code
Commitment To Complications

Commitment to Complications is the new album by Youth Code. The industrial hardcore band, who take inspiration from EBM formed in Los Angeles in 2012. Since their eponymous debut in 2013, the band have toured extensively with the likes of Skinny Puppy and Front Line Assembly. All that t...view item »

Drab Majesty
Completely Careless (2012-2015)

This release presents the full discography, to date, of Drab Majesty, the atmospheric pop project of Deb Demure: that’s a couple of EP’s and an album’s worth of 80’s-feeling tunes. Completely Careless (2012-2015) is released on the DAIS label as a CD in a jewel case with slip and...view item »

High Functioning Flesh
Human Remains

The classic sound of 80’s Electronic Body Music, brought back anew by two Los Angeles residents. High Functioning Flesh have everything perfectly in place, from the distant sneer of the vocals to the minimal tweaks of the synth-lines. Feel the sweat-drenched industrial heat. Human Remains is released by DAIS....view item »

Youth Code
Youth Code

Here’s an LP of gothy industrial pop business from LA. Phil just asked if it was from the ‘80s and said it sounds like Skinny Puppy. In short what’s happening here is some kind of in-your-face industrial percussiveness with murky swirling synth pulses and lots of distant processed shouting. It’s actually quite acc...view item »

Sightings
Amusers and Puzzlers

‘Amusers and Puzzlers’ is the final chapter in the nine album career of one of experimental rocks most jaded treasures, Sightings. The record, intended as a complimentary album to their 2013 release ‘Terribly Well’ is the oxymoronic climax of their unique style of damaged rock, driven by irregular guitar changes and nervy...view item »

Genesis Breyer P-Orridge / Black Rain / Cold Cave
Rebellion Is Over

A star-studded collaboration here, with Throbbing Gristle’s Genesis Breyer P-Orridge intoning atop sonics from Black Rain and Cold Cave (presumably during the period when Dom Fernow / Prurient was moonlighting with them). Rebellion Is ...view item »

Youth Code
Anagnorisis

Youth Code are a fresh duo with an old-school Electronic Body Music sound, bringing Industrial dance back into prominence. They are satisfyingly harsh too, pushing drum machines to pummelling levels. The Anagnorisis 7” comes in advance of next year’s second full-length, with two tracks of howling goodness....view item »

Cold Showers
Matter Of Choice

Cold Showers’ new record, Matter Of Choice, is a big, shiny, synth-driven post-punk statement. Although the textures lean almost into shoegaze at times, there is definitely a big pop sensibility at play here, with songs like ‘Plantlife’ sounding like they dream of being played on big stages. LP release...view item »

Tor Lundvall
The Shipyard

There is literally no distinction between the Nils Quak record and this one. When I exchanged discs no-one noticed. Again, it’s an album of ambient drones, a lot more soothing than old Quakky and with much more variation of sound....view item »

Tor Lundvall
The Park

Tor Lundvall’s new album The Park is called that for a reason: it is about a park, an attempt to evoke a park, and involving field recordings of parks too. Much ambience, moving through brighter and darker periods as does a real day in a park. LP on Dais, completing an informal place-based trilogy with the label....view item »

High-Functioning Flesh
Definite Structures

High-Functioning Flesh show us what happens when noisy punk meets with electronic / techno templates, and the results aren’t pretty. Which is a very good thing. Definite Structures is the second record these guys have turned out, and it sounds pretty frantic: this will inspire movement. Rad times on Dais....view item »

Thee Majesty
Live At The Pezner

"I seem to remember that somebody said that we were cheating because Genesis P-Orridge wasn't here," insists Genesis P-Orridge in the opening seconds of this, my third live album of the day. "Well of course he's not. After all, why the hell would Genesis P. Orridge come to Lyon?" And so begins our lengthy ...view item »

Youth Code
A Place to Stand EP

Youth Code fit snugly in the LA punk scene, but aren't about settling for its tacky promises. They show off their reverence for hardcore, New Wave, industrial and all the things that happen in between on their A Place To Stand EP. The first four tracks have the band shooting some brand new shit,...view item »

Hunting Lodge
Will

Will was first released in 1983, as the first full length demonstration of the bleak and broken might of Hunting Lodge. The record, released anew on vinyl thanks to Dais Records, is a hammering industrial creature, mixing live recordings with studio explorations. Noisy and messed-sounding, rather influential too....view item »

Martial Canterel
Gyors, Lassú

Some retro modernity from Martial Canterel. Gyors, Lassú is a venture into the world of the analogue synthesizer. The New York native evokes the sounds of the 80's post-punk, new wave and electro-pop scenes. Imagine if Andrew Weatherall and Ian Dury scored the music to a sci-fi film in Salford - yes, I would love...view item »

Youth Code
An Overture: Collection

Shouty, righteous but mature electronic punk noises from L.A’s Youth Code. Consisting of their debut LP, new EP A Place To Stand and tracks from the Angry Love 7”, An Overture showcases their powerful industrial intensity and keen ear for a good hook in equal measure. Out on CD from Dais....view item »

Drekka
Ekki Gera Fikniefnum

This new Drekka 12"/LP comprises an interesting mixture of collaborations, live recordings and a couple of tracks originally released on a 3" CDr in an edition of 20. It starts with a beautiful, slow song with Annelies Monsere singing languidly over some ghostly melodic drones before it all gets taken over by a waterfall of static mess, ...view item »

David First
Electronic Works 1976 – 1977

After these recordings, David First went on to perform in avant-punks The Notekillers before moving to New York to participate in the avant garde and still works as a neoclassical and drone composer to this day. I read that in the press release. Working here makes you feel like a right ignoramus sometimes...view item »

COUM Transmissions
Home Aged & The 18 Month Hope

Opening (unbelievably) with an interview between a stuffy of-the-era BBC type and a very, very camp Genesis P- Orridge on Humberside radio in 1973,  this is a collection of unheard recordings from the pre- Throbbing Gristle outfit. We have a live performance opening for Haw...view item »

Tor Lundvall
Structures and Solitude

Been drifting round the house in a glacial haze whilst listening to this box set by Tor Lundvall. Perfect for moments of winter reflection....view item »

Sightings
Terribly Well

A friend and I recently seized a rare opportunity to catch this NYC band play these shores. We made a 240 mile round trip and it was totally worth it. I could probably count on one hand the amount of new rock music I listen to these days but I always have time for these cats. I scored this LP at the show too and enjoyed getting it home and going...view item »

aTelecine
Entkopplung

Here’s a soundtrack to a film which hasn’t been finished yet, which will apparently be “a highly esoteric science fiction labyrinth in the silhouette of Phillip K Dick meets William S Burroughs”, which sounds promising. Anyway, since this film has been in the works ...view item »

King Dude
Burning Daylight

I missed the boat on this awesomely-named fella’s first album but the single which preceded this new one was great so I’m pretty pleased to see that this LP’s in the office now. Really cool artwork too - foil-stamped sleeve and on the inner sleeve a picture of...view item »

Genesis P-Orridge & Stan Bingo
What's History

Wow, this is a true curio, recorded by Gen & TG affiliate Bingo at the dawn of ‘81 in the formers slumber-time dwelling. What you have here is a whit...view item »

King Dude
You Can Break My Heart b/w Devil’s Tail

Oh man, this new 7" from King Dude is one of the most weird and wonderful pop songs I've heard in ages. It's Elvis-style Christmas pop with a delivery that comes across like Leonard Cohen...view item »

Prurient
Wrapped In The Flame Of Illusion, Masked In The Clay Of Behavior

It's a long while since I've heard anything by the monogloved dark wonder Prurient. So I thought I'd see what he's up to these days with this double pack on Dais Records. I wouldn't get too close to the cover if you're of a nervous disposition as Genesis P Orridge has done a fine job of ...view item »

Tor Lundvall
The Seasons Unfold

Tor Lundvall is a new name to me but looking at his extensive collection of releases since 1997 I can see he's been quite busy! This 4CD set gathers together his three seasonal albums (Winter, Spring and Summer) called Ice, The Mist and Under the Shadows Of Trees. Plus there's a ten track bonus disc call...view item »

Ghedalia Tazartes
Diasporas

Nurse With Wound list fiends out there will probably have clocked this reissue which is already sold out at source. Originally recorded in 1977 and issued in 1979 this is an official reissue of this cult obscurity, remastered from the original source tapes and hand numbered of 500 copies. I've no idea what this artist has been involved with ...view item »

Lord Foul
Killing Raping Burning / The Devil’s Advocate

Lord Foul was a one-man hate machine operating out of Louisville, Kentucky in the early '90s, and this LP collects both his two demo tapes onto one side of vinyl, with the other side taken up by what I can only describe as a phenomenally shit etching (weirdly enough designed by the same guy who drew the totally sweet foil-stamped cover desig...view item »
