The Beta Band
The Three EPs (20th Anniversary Remaster) [Deluxe Edition]

Noted for *that* moment in High Fidelity when the guy in the store says "let's sell some records" and puts a Beta Band track on and people start wandering up to the counter to find out what it is. It's a reminder that the early the Beta Band was a good thing - their reputation is based on these three early EPs. The fact that they subsequently disappeared down a rabbit warren of their own making is, in time, starting to be forgotten.

Christine and The Queens
Chaleur Humaine (Original French Language Edition)

The fact that you can now arm yourself with a French language version of Christine and the Queens unfathomably popular 'Chaleur Humaine' is another display of its wide reaching impact. Useful certainly for French language speakers, those learning French or anyone with an interest in non-threatening electro pop.

The Beta Band
The Beta Band

The Beta Band’s eponymous debut LP turns twenty in 2019, so Because Music are preemptively reissuing the record. Though it wasn’t to everyone’s taste at the time it came out (including the band themselves), when heard now The Beta Band sounds ahead of the curve. The way these tracks run roughshod over the constraints of genre is sometimes good, sometimes less so, but certainly never dull. Its closest relatives are albums like Beck’s Odelay and The Avalanches' Since I Left You.

Django Django
Winter's Beach

At the start of 2018, London art-rockers Django Django released their third album, Marble Skies. By that time however, they were so consumed by inspiration that they were already in the studio working on some spiffy new tunes. The result of those sessions was Winter’s Beach, a six track EP. 12” and CD on Because Music.

Christine and The Queens
Chaleur Humaine (UK Edition)

Christine, with the support of her Queens, is making big splashes in France: she’s scarcely left their top 40 charts for years. What’s well cool is that she’s managed this great success without compromising the more unusual parts of her sound and style. On Chaleur Humaine, productions are frequently minimal, and always cool. Released in the UK by Because Music.

Parcels
Parcels

A further addition to the 'call your band literally anything' brigade is this hot young group from Australia who have since moved to ...oooh...let's guess....Berlin! They've already had a staggering 90 million streams across various platforms which I'm sure means something to someone out there. Be interesting to see how these Daft Punk collaborating disco pop lot get on in the real world.

Christine and The Queens
Chris

Héloïse Letissier is back with a new album as Christine and The Queens! The French singer-songwriter now gives us 'Chris' as the follow-up album to 2014's 'Chaleur Humaine' which took France by storm and sold shedloads (millions, actually) just about everywhere else; including here at your humble Norman, in an expanded UK version in 2016. As before, the record is available in both French and English versions. It looks like Héloïse is fast becoming an icon of our times. Available an English double LP, a French 2x LP, a double CD and a super huge boxset of all the versions and a poster! On Because Music.

Shaolin Soul (Episode 4)

It is a testament to the ingenuity and talent of RZA’s Wu-Tang Clan productions that the world can eagerly take four whole volumes (so far!) of material he has sampled.

The Beta Band
The Best of The Beta Band: Music

Who doesn’t like The Beta Band? No-one, that’s who. However, despite being universally loved, some of us - Norman Records™ description writers included - aren’t that familiar with the group’s output beyond ubiquitous early-2000s hit ‘Squares’. This also makes it a bit difficult for some of us to say what their music sounds like. Let's go with ... Super Furry Animals ... and ... Beck ... maybe The Avalanches too? Is that right? Either way, The Best Of The Beta Band will help plug the gap for those who’ve always wanted to know more about the Scottish group but have been afraid to ask. Comes backed with a live album.

Django Django
Marble Skies

7" of the title track from Django Django's third album, Marble Skies. This comes backed with a remix from CID RIM, an affiliate of the LuckyMe record label. CID RIM takes the high energy art rock of the band's original, and gives it the electronic edge and sheen his cohort of producers is known for.

Sons Of Raphael
A Nation Of Bloodsuckers

The first ever EP from Sons Of Raphael, the London duo who are not only sons, but also brothers. A Nation Of Bloodsuckers contains four tracks, and if you can look past the come-on-then-mate swagger of the cover artwork, you might find a lot to enjoy in the shoegaze-tinged widescreen indie-pop within.

Nicolas Godin
Au service de la France (A Very Secret Service)

Nicolas Godin used to be in AIR - yes, that AIR - but now he does soundtracks and that. This score, composed for French TV spy show Au service de la France (A Very Secret Service), sees Godin assemble a small jazz orchestra and turn out fifteen pieces of library ephemera. There’s plenty of Parisian chic to the politely swinging ‘Apero Calypso’ and the Gainsbourg-y ‘Casbah Lounge’. All-round Gallic goodness.

Justice
Woman Worldwide

While touring Woman, Justice had to reconfigure the album to be suited to being played live. This process unearthed a different side to the album's tracks, one they have documented in the studio on Woman Worldwide. They didn't stop there though, and played some of their best known tracks in the same style as well.

Pascal Comelade
Paralelo

Superlative vintage EMS / AKS synthesiser music from Pascal Comelade circa the late 1970’s. Paralelo, which receives its first proper reissue here, is a wonderful work of personal synthetic sound exploration that needs to be heard! The reissue also adds a whole LP’s worth of bonuses, including a long piece with David Cunningham. Double LP and CD reissue package from Because Music.

Cerrone
Give Me Remixes

We can never devour enough French disco, but remixes might be even better. Featuring remixes by the likes of The Reflex and Alan Braxe, these Cerrone tracks are presented with rediscovered themes and beats. Lend a fresh air to these reworkings and say it with me: Give Me Remixes! Time to get dancing!

Diplo
California

Diplo, the super-producer (do we still use that term?) behind Major Lazer and many big pop smashes, provides the people with a six track EP of new material. Though it's just an EP, he’s managed to squeeze in eight guest artists into the tracklisting, including Santigold, Trippie Redd and Lil Yachty. 12” EP with CD version included.

Charlotte Gainsbourg
5:55

With releases on Mille Feuilles, Underdog, and Sounds Around, french producer Molecule returns to Because Music for his latest full length -22.7°C.

Django Django
Marble Skies

Art rockers Django Django have established themselves as one of Britain’s more original bands. From their unpigeonholable eponymous debut to it’s follow-up Born Under Saturn they have mashed genres together to make a sound all of their own. Their new album Marble Skies, like their debut, is a more lean affair than Born Under Saturn, but doesn’t fail to explore new territory.

Django Django
Tic Tac Toe

Genre-mashing art rockers Django Django have a new album on its way. It’s called Marble Skies. The album sees the band reverting to their roots. To whet your appetite for the full 12 inches, they have released a more digestible 7”. Tic Tac Toe is the first single to be lifted from the album. 7” on Because Music.

Keny Arkana
L’Esquisse 3

Seventh solo album from French-Argentine rapper Kelly Arkana. The third in her L'Esquisse (meaning Sketching) series, this is Arkana flexing her creative clout in a slightly more relaxed mixtape-y format. Her flow is vicious and purposeful, matched by the album's beats, and, I can only assume, its lyrics.

Petite Fantome
Un Moment Pour Le Vent

Petit Fantome is what Pierre Loustaunau (who has played in Crane Angels, Francois & The Atlas Mountains gets up to when taking the reigns all for himself.

Camille
Ouï

French pop singer Camille might be new to many, but with her debut being back in 2002 she is far from just a singer from Paris. Her tracks are always playful and performed with an almost childlike sense of innocent fun/silliness. Burps and raspberries are common place amongst serene harmonies and big drum percussion. Imagine Tom Waits and Bjork making a sweet pop record. On vinyl or CD via Because Music.

The Liminanas
The Liminanas

The Limiñanas are the brainchild of Lio and Marie Limiñana. Beginning as a home studio project the duo spentmuch time flipping through John Barry and Ennio Morricone LP's and bookson Victorian era architecture, watching Noir films, and basking in the sun of Southern France seeking inspiration. Their first single came by way of Chicago's venerable Hozac Records in March 2010, followed up by a single 7" release, Je-ne-suis-pas-tres-drogue , on the fledgling Trouble In Mind label in April 2010. It's been noted that their are traces of Serge Gainsbourg, Beck, Stereolab, Gospel, Yeh-Yeh, guitar fuzz freakouts, and Nugget's-era stompers in the Limiñanas music.

Pascal Comelade
Le Rocanrolorama Abrégé

Having recently gone all the way in one direction by releasing a 6CD ‘Complete Works’ box-set, Pascal Comelade now does the opposite by cutting the collection way down again to fit into a twenty-four track double LP / single CD set. Le Rocanrolorama Abrege features music from 1993 to 2016, representing the multiple sides of Pascal’s ornate musical styles.

MMOTHS
Deu

Irish producer MMOTHS is in no hurry with his tracks: the title track on Deu takes its sweet time emerging from ambient haze into a lazy shuffle, backed with vocals so distant and whispy that this could almost be shoegaze. All of this is definitely a good thing of course: we like a producer whose big on atmosphere. 10” vinyl on Because Music.

Trip In The Center Head

Space Art are a notable example of French electronic pop music, active in the late 70’s.

Django Django
First Light

Even I liked Django Django's first album and I like nothing. Nothing. These are the first sounds from what is presumably a new album coming up later this year and initial listen suggests its pretty decent. A hazy electronic pop song with nice harmonies. You get a Mickey Pearce remix too and this white label is very limited and won't be around long.

Red Lips

Marc Cerrone is a legendary disco producer from near Paris and has sold 30 million albums worldwide!

The French lords of electro-house circa 2007-9 are back after quite some years away.

Metronomy
Summer 08

Summer 08 by Metronomy recalls a time when musical polymath and mop-haired dreamboat Joe Mount was out night after night constantly drinking and playing gigs in dives to promote his forthcoming second album Nights Out.

This, their remarkably titled debut, shows a sound miles away from the pleasant pop of 'Love Letters'. It's wild electronica with fuzzy guitar riffs and nary a vocal in sight. First time on vinyl from this previously much sought after artefact.

Seun Kuti + Egypt 80
From Africa With Fury: Rise

Seun Kuti, offspring of the grand overlord of afrobeat Fela himself, has this music flowing through his veins. He lets it out again on From Africa With Fury: Rise, his 2011 album with Egypt 80, which nails the unbeatable groove and stunning energy that the best of the genre ascends to. Oh, and it was produced by Brian Eno too! Double disc LP reissue on Because Music.

Selah Sue
Reason

Reason is the second studio album from Belgian singer Selah Sue. She’s got a Paloma Faith feel to her but without the sweetheart-of-the-nation vibe and the pretty great songs which lets Paloma get away with it all. That said, Selah Sue has a pair of lungs on her and some bold R&B inflected sounds. A powerful performer who is bound to do well.

Molecule
60°43' Nord

60° 43’ Nord is a banging techno record, primed and ready for club deployment. But, more unusually, it is also a document of the underwater soundscape found underneath a fishing boat in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Yes, it can be both things! Nice explorative work here from Molecule, released by Because Music.

Various
Cosmic Machine: The Sequel LP

A wide range of exciting experimental music is represented on Cosmic Machine’s The Sequel, which compiles some choice pieces of French space-jams from the 70’s and 80’s. Not many of the artists will be familiar to the average listener (Moon Birds? Arpadys?), but a few spins will reveal their forward-looking groove wonder. On Because Music.

The Liminanas
Malamore

The Liminanas are a French band, though you don’t need me to tell you that: just listen to those breath vocals! Malamore is their fourth album, and it finds the band very relaxed in their sonic niche: sunny, sexy, laid-back pop. It must be said, they do it well. Malamore is released by Because Music.

Django Django
Unreleased Versions and Remixes Vol. 1

Not sure about unreleased versions but these seem to be remixes of the Scottish popular music combo by the likes of Richard Fearless, Man of Moon, Peaking Lights and ol' mushroom head himself Twitter's Tim Burgess. Django stuff always does well at RSD so for our sake we hope this will too, otherwise we're snookered.    

MMOTHS
Luneworks

Young Irish producer Jack Colleran, who goes under the name of MMOTHS, is highly capable with that smooth and mournful style of modern electronica: soulful vocals and cavernous synths over a steady beat. Luneworks is his debut full-length album, following a few years building up a reputation. CD release on Because Music.

Don Cavalli
De Profundis

High-grade contemporary rockabilly / blues from Don Cavalli. De Profundis was recorded at home and initially released in 2003, in a tightly limited edition on his own A*RAG label. Few have had the chance to hear it since, so this reissue (which adds several bonus tracks from the same sessions) is very welcome. On Because Music.

Cerrone
Afro

Unbelievably funky electronic soul from Cerrone. On Afro he borrows the drumming skills of the legendary Tony Allen. The drums which helped out Fela Kuti are here used to compliment his rapid-fire string arrangements and wah-wah guitar. The B sides keep the groove with Manu Dibango helping out and a remix from garage icon Todd Edwards.

Mind Enterprises
Idealist

Debut full-length from Mind Enterprises, the one-man modern synth-pop project of Andrea Tirrone. Grooves are the crucial core of these tracks, which are more than capable of leading the listener into some joyous nights of dancing if deployed right. Released by Because Music: the LP edition comes packaged with a CD.

Django Django
Pause Repeat

Taken from Django Django’s second album Born Under Saturn, Pause Repeat is a joyous, summer-filled pop song. Now it’s been pulled apart and reassembled by the likes of Debruit, Clap! Clap!, Bok Bok, and JD Twitch of Optimo. Expect some excellently percussive reimaginings. 12” vinyl available on Because Music.

Nicolas Godin
Widerstehe Doch Der Sünde

Nicholas Gödin is probably best known to you as half of French duo Air, but he’s been making music of his own as well. His stately electro-orchestral pop single Widerstehe Doch Der Sünde is presented here in its original form, as well as in a wide variety of remix versions by Justin K. Broadrick, Lapalux and Mmoths.

Major Lazer
Lean On

Major Lazer is a collaborative project created by American DJ and record producer Diplo and French DJ and producer DJ Snake. Their new 12’’ release ‘Lean On’ is an upbeat, international modern pop track carried by vocals from Danish recording artist MO. Receiving universally positive reviews and a top-ten position in nineteen international charts it is their most successful single to date.

Nicolas Godin
Contrepoint

After becoming bored with the huge success of AIR, Nicolas Godin has decided to treat us to his solo work. On Contrepoint, one of our favorite 90s French producers sheds a new light on the intricacies of Johann Sebastian Bach’s solo piano works. And, not surprisingly, the result is estranging and enticing.

Pascal Comelade
Traffic d'Abstraction

Pascal Comelade is a Catalan musician who has been active since the 1970s. This right here is a reissue of his album Traffic d’Abstraction, although not an altogether straight-forward reissue: some tracks are swapped out for alternate versions or unheard pieces preferred by Comelade. Gatefold vinyl on Because Music.

Django Django
Reflections

Reflections is taken from Mercury Music Prize nominated and London based art-rockers Django Django’s latest album Born Under Saturn.

RATATAT
Magnifique

RATATAT, (whose wikipedia page helpfully informs us are “not to confused with Rattata”, the Pokemon) are a Brooklynite duo who bring grooves to their listeners via mostly instrumental, predominantly electronic means. With Magnifique, they throw more guitar into the mix than we have come to expect from the last few records. On Because Music.

The Liminanas
(I've Got) Trouble In My Mind - 7" and Rare Stuff 2009/2014

Hazy garage rockers The Limiñanas would appreciate it if you listened to everything they have ever recorded -- even the stuff they just made on a whim -- and so it goes. '7 Inch And Rare Stuff 2009-14' collects the French jangle pop band's singles and side-lined tunes into one package that shows off the band's decidely French approach to New York rock and punk. It features covers of bands such as the Beach Boys and Jay Reatard, who don't really have much in common otherwise.

Django Django
Born Under Saturn

Born Under Saturn is the second album (at last!) from Django Django. From the sound of ‘First Light’, the initial single, it seems that Django Django will be targeting summer happiness with these thirteen tracks. A blend of '60s harmonies and more contemporary synth-basslines turns out to be pretty fine combo. Out on Because Music.
