Suicide Squeeze Vinyl, CD & tapes from Norman Records

The Coathangers
Live

Atlanta, Georgia garage punk three-piece The Coathangers have done their best to capture the essence of their live energy in the studio over five albums. However, there’s nothing like ‘live’ for that truly visceral and magical experience so the band decided to release a blisterin...view item »

Elliott Smith
Division Day

Division Day by Elliott Smith was a non-album single, originally released in 1996 in between his self-titled second album and his masterpiece, Either/Or. Division Day is Elliott’s first foray into more upbeat pop following two acoustic albums. Now repressed on tri-colour vinyl and limited to 1000 copies. An absolute must-b...view item »

Hinds / Los Nastys
Holograma / Castigadas En El Granero

Here's a split 7" by two of Madrid's most lively punk and garage rock bands. In time worn style Hinds and Los Nastys have a go at playing each others songs and as a result have created a document of the much overlooked Madrid rock scene of which these two lots are major players. Brought to you on vinyl as red as...view item »

L.A. Witch
L.A. Witch

Spooky garage rock that doesn’t really care if you’re here but isn’t opposed to the idea of hanging out, I guess. L.A. Witch make a raucous racket that feels every bit as lazy for the weekend as it does structured for a song. Let the lo-fi wash over you like a great big affirmation that the time you’re wasting right now i...view item »

Guantanamo Baywatch
Desert Center

These punningly named rock and rollers offer up their second LP which contains more examples of their unique take on '50s inspired rock and roll. They land somewhere between Violent Femmes, Rocket From the Crypt and Eddie Cochran offering grungy bar room brawls to crank up the jukebox ...view item »

The Coathangers
Parasite

Whilst this edition is still lathered in exactly the sort of haywire and scuzz-ridden guitar solos you'd expect from The Coathangers, this time - with Parasite - Julia Kugal has attempted to not "scream anymore -- just sing and focus on melody". Written in the wake of the election, this piece of angst-...view item »

This Will Destroy You
The Puritan

The Puritan by This Will Destroy You and also a remix by Julianna Barwick. Barwick has managed to encompass everything we love about This Will Destroy You, but with an added pinch of sounds, textures and emotional dynamic. Described as ‘both sinking and floating’, this shoega...view item »

Minus The Bear
VOIDS

I used to be on this internet forum with a guy who went under the username of Minus The Flair. An awful pun, but in 2017, he is extremely correct: Minus the Bear have got very, very little going on. They used to be a guiding light for the kind of streamlined math rock Foals ended up moving towards, crafting tunes that...view item »

Kevin Morby
My Name

Aaaaaaaaaaah I remember this guy, he’s the guy from Woods who did that ace ‘Harlem River’ album earlier this year which we all so enjoyed. This is a follow up 7” of brand new songs featuring two examples of his spectral guitar pickings. On the A Side he augments his rustic guitar patterns wit...view item »

King Tuff
Wild Desire / Hole In My Head

Not heard this King Tuff lad before. Judging by this 7” he makes melodic garagey power-pop which will appeal to fans of the likes of Ty Segall, ...view item »

VHS
Gift of Life

Thank you for making a quick album. When you’re making one like ‘Gift of Life’, it’s probably best you keep it brief: littered with vignettes on medical suffering and hospital living, VHS’s record should sound and feel utterly hopeless, but its brevity instead makes the band sound like anxious and unwanting messenge...view item »

The Coathangers
Nosebleed Weekend

Ten years into their activities as a band, The Coathangers release their fifth album, which maintains the best possible balance between experienced polish and the reckless sense of abandon that makes this garagey pop-punk work so well. Nosebleed Weekend is released on CD and LP by the Suicide Squeeze label: vinyl comes ...view item »

Audacity
Hyper Vessels

Hyper Vessels perfectly captures Audacity’s gnarly punk and its sense of being both tight and loose at the same time. Anything goes for this band, as long as it’s heavy and fast; sometimes they’re catchy, sometimes they’re abrasive, and there’s always a decent overdriven guitar solo...view item »

Michael Nau
Mowing

On the surface Michael Nau is a singer-songwriter. He has a charming honeyed croon and plays a range of instruments. But the little pop songs and experiments on Mowing are far too strange to just call him that. Weird arrangements, oddball samples and a general air of catchy eccentricity make this extremely disti...view item »

Childbirth
Women's Rights

Childbirth are a very interesting group. Members of Chastity Belt, Tacocat and Pony Time join together to make sharp post-punk tracks with even sharper sarcastic lyrics critiquing women’s place in society with tracks like ‘Tech Bro’ and ‘Open Tinder&rsquo...view item »

Headphones
Headphones

Headphones are a group who are proud to stand behind only synthesisers (and drums), rather than any guitars. Headphones is their debut record (and indeed their only record), released in 2005 and now reissued by Suicide Squeeze on white vinyl. Indie synth-rock with a strong ear for melody and a songwriter’s touch....view item »

Meat Market
Too Tired

Meat Market - a great name for a band, I’m sure we can all agree, but what do they sound like? Well, I just put the needle down on their new 7” and they sound like energetic punky power-pop with bright and slightly glammy delivery which has shades of Marked Men, Young Offenders, Heavy Times, even the...view item »

Shana Cleveland & The Sandcastles
Oh Man, Cover the Ground

Oh Man, Cover The Ground is a slowly unfolding collection of tracks sprouting up around languid fingerpicked guitar and Shana Cleveland’s wistful voice. With her band The Sandcastles she creates a relaxed air somewhere between traditional folk and contemporary songwriter territory. Out on Suicide ...view item »

Guantanamo Baywatch
DarlingÂ… It's Too Late

Guantanamo Baywatch pair a contemporarily snarky name with a sound that would border on the vintage pastiche if not for the band’s evident love for (and skill in re-creating) the sound(s) of 1950’s US popular music. Darling It’s Too Late is available on Suicide Squeeze, either as CD or as delicious pea...view item »

The Aislers Set
How I Learned To Write Backwards

The good will out eventually. Aislers Set were a late ‘90’s San Francisco band who stood out from many of their fellow twee-poppers in that they had songwriting ‘chops’ intact and that they sounded like they had emerged blinking  from some 1960’s bolt-hole. I say ‘they’ but Aislers Set was generally...view item »


Fort George EP

Music and craft beer are increasingly becoming bedfellows. I was very impressed by the craft beer stall at this years YO1 fest -  so much so that I assisted in helping drink it dry, and even we are getting in on the act with our beer competition. This 7" has been pressed up to celebrate the bre...view item »

The Coathangers
Suck My Shirt

These lady garage punkers are now onto their fourth full length album. ‘Suck My Shirt’ released on Suicide Squeeze Records is a brash but intelligent collection of riot grrrl noise, the riffs are simple but effective and the art rock style vocals give it more of a post punk vibe than out and out garage nonsense. Tracks like &...view item »


Forever Singles

Delightfully green limited edition LP from the good people at Suicide Squeeze. Forever Singles brings together all the singles the label has put out, by bands including Meat Market, The Coathangers, and Dirty Beaches, whose Stateless album has been going down very well in 2014....view item »

Audacity
Butter Knife

The Goatse-esque cover illustration to this new Audacity album has kind of put me off my lunch, but no matter! I’m a professional and will review through the retches, because this lot actually aren’t too bad. They’re peddling a very ‘90s-ish indie rock sound as seems to be the trend nowadays...view item »

Minus The Bear
Acoustics 2

Following up their first Acoustics EP, this full length unplugged album from Minus the Bear features eight stripped-back, reinterpreted tracks as well as two new tracks, with something for everyone, whether a fan looking for a surprising version of an old favourite or a new listener looking for something different. Limi...view item »

Julianna Barwick
Pacing

Here’s the latest 7” from Julianna Barwick, coming out on Suicide Squeeze this time, with a couple of piano-oriented compositions this time round. On the first side ‘Pacing’ is all delicate tinkles and feather-light vocals layered and reve...view item »

Nu Sensae
Sundowning

I like Canada, I really do. I know they gave us Bieber and Nickelback and those obnoxious canadian pharmacy spam emails, but they gave us good things too. Tegan and Sara, canadian bacon, Rush and so on and so forth. Now add to that hardcore-punk trio Nu Sensae and you’ve got a well rounded list. I kn...view item »

These Arms Are Snakes
Tail Swallower and Dove

Comes on like vintage Fugazi early, then the keyboard burbles kick in at the end of "Woolen Heirs" and the album becomes something else entirely. Honestly, while I'm a fan, I was a little afraid that this album would just be 'more of the same'. I'm pleased that These Arms Are Snakes continued with the sound we're acc...view item »

Minus The Bear
Interpretaciones Del Oso

It goes without saying that this shouldn't be your first MTB album. Menos is the masterpiece. At the same time, you have to understand this album for what it is: it is a remix album. Tracks 1,2, and 8 are amazing. Then you have the rest. I have no idea what some of these DJs were thinking. Some didn't use any of the words from the originals and ...view item »

Metal Hearts
Socialize

This band sounds so much, ok too much like Pinback. I'm a huge fan of Pinback and all Rob's and Armistead's work. I checked this out after hearing the song "Socialize" on the Team Sleep channel for Pandora. Although that is certainly the standout track, the rest of the album doesn't disappoint or stray far from that basic sound. I'd say it's perfec...view item »

Minus The Bear
Planet Of Ice

In 2007, Minus The Bear were on math rock's biggest roll, having spent plenty of time messing with time signatures until their songs were stretched but bizarrely irresistible -- 'Highly Refined Pirates' and the more experimental 'Menos El Oso' were the proof. They followed those records up with 'Planet of Ice', a widescreen affair of battling gu...view item »
