Red Hot Chili Peppers
Californication

Although they had previously been well known for their riffy funk rock and habit of wearing socks on unusual parts of the body, Californication was the commercial breakthrough for Red Hot Chili Peppers. It marked the return of guitarist John Frusciante which yielded a leaner more melodic and soulful sound. It has long been their most successful record and now 20 years after its inception you can get it on a rather nice looking picture disc double album. 

Liam Gallagher
Why Me? Why Not.

Hmmm, new solo album from Liam Gallagher, with the enormous shrug of a title Why Me? Why Not. Why not indeed, we might wonder. The younger Gallagher it out front and centre here, with a loyal band behind him to make his grand visions come out just as he wants them. This second solo full length is out on Warner Bros.

Prince
1999 (Remastered)

Containing a whopping 35 previously unreleased recordings, the career-defining '1999' album of pop-rock royalty Prince is here re-issued. This super deluxe version also includes a live album, along with various other goodies which celebrate Prince's enormous worldwide impact - quintessential stuff for fans of the Minnesota-born pioneer.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Colorado

Colorado is the first album by Neil Young & Crazy Horse since the epic Psychedelic Pill in 2012. The band believe that they had it in them to make an album that was equal to their best material, so they got together and gave it a go. This particular incarnation of Crazy Horse include Nils Lofgren on guitar and piano. 

Echo & The Bunnymen
The John Peel Sessions 1979-1983

One of Britain’s most august indie institutions, Echo & The Bunnymen present an archival dig for all of the sessions they recorded for the legendary John Peel during their formative years from 1979 to 1983. Many of the 21 songs - presented over two LPs / one CD - do not appear on their early albums, as the band actually used the sessions to experiment with new material. 

Van Morrison
Astral Weeks

Astral Weeks was the second album by Irish singer/songwriter Van Morrison. It was originally released in 1968. Morrison assembled a band of jazz musicians to create an album that was more expansive and meandering than his previous work. It’s highly regarded among fans and its influence has even shown on recent albums such as Primrose Green by Ryley Walker. Highly recommended!

Muse
Origin Of Muse

Crammed with goodies and keepsakes, this epic LP box set brings together everything you didn't know about Muse from their formation, through to their first two albums ('Showbiz' and 'Origin of Symmetry'). The mammoth 113 tracks included features 40(!) which were previously unreleased. Quintessential stuff for fans of the legendary space-rock trio.

Neil Young
After The Gold Rush

Neil’s 1970 masterpiece is sublimely balanced. The lonesome piano stoner anthem of the title track, the eerie / uplifting Don’t Let It Bring you Down, Only Love Can Break Your Heart’s hippy wisdom, a pair of Crazy Horse rockers, and a few weepies. There’s not a song here that wouldn’t be an essential setlist inclusion for most artists, but this is Neil we’re talking about. Hence the charming miniatures Cripple Creek Ferry and Til the Morning Comes are relatively overlooked and Tell Me Why rarely gets a live airing. The recent remaster was a revelation and best of all on vinyl.

Liam Gallagher
Shockwave

Following the impressive reception for his debut solo album a couple of years ago, Liam Gallagher delivers the opening salvo from its follow-up LP, due later in 2019. ‘Shockwave’ comes on a one-sided, etched 7” single, ahead of a sub-headline performance at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

Neil Young
Harvest Moon

Ah Harvest Moon. Like Bat out Hell 2, it's a key example of how an artist going back to an original blueprint can reap dividends. On Harvest Moon Neil Young captured the vibe of his original Harvest album, with a series of beautifully evocative acoustic songs including utterly essential closer Natural Beauty.  

The Stooges
The Stooges

Garage rock legends the Stooges unleashed their raucous self titled debut onto an unsuspecting world in the otherwise flowery and peaceful year of 1969.  it contains several of their classic songs including I Wanna Be Your Dog and No Fun. You'd have thought critics would have flipped but it was met with a lot of disdain at the time being described as 'stupid' and a step back in a music scene that was moving terrifyingly towards progressive rock. Little did they know that it's thrilling raw power (see what I did there?) would be a major influence on punk rock.

Liam Gallagher
One of Us

Please please please pleeeeeeeeeease let this new Liam Gallagher single be a cover of ABBA’s heartbreak anthem ‘One Of Us’. Can you imagine - the man with a fork, in his world of soup, belting out one of Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid’s most achingly beautiful compositions. I mean, it’s not going to be - the writing credits alone tell us that 'One Of Us' is an LG original - but that’s not going to stop us dreaming. England expects.

New Order
Get Ready

Once exceptional, New Order have seemingly spent the latter part of their career trying to undo the work of the first bit. Get Ready was their 2000 era comeback album and saw the band return to a tougher guitar-led sound with Peter Hook's bass turned back up again following its disappearance on Republic. Possibly lacking the invention and panache of their golden years, it now sounds a lot better having heard what would happen on subsequent albums.

Prince
Originals

Prince’s archives must be one of the most lusted-after collections of presumed wonder in modern music, so plenty of people will be delighted to see this major new release. Originals features fifteen songs that Prince wrote for other artists (most of them hits), except that here we finally get to hear the great man’s original versions recorded himself, all but one of them previously unreleased. Damn.

Liam Gallagher
I've All I Need

Liam Gallagher has a brother. Technically, he has two. He now also has a 7" called "I've All I Need" which I am probably not going to listen to, but I do think about Oasis once a fortnight and I'm okay with having that much of LG in my head. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Liam has a brother.

Foals
Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost: Part 2

The days when Foals made the sort of short-circuiting post-punk that had them briefly touted as a math-rock band are long gone. As anyone who’s checked in with the group’s last few records can attest, Yannis et al now deal in a brand of meaty stadium-rock that comes off like an art-school version of Rage Against The Machine. Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost: Part 2, the companion piece to the Part 1 that was released earlier this year, continues to lean into this sound.

Muse
Origin Of Symmetry

It's the Muse album that has the slightly louder and more abrasive songs than the other Muse albums! Wherein they ruin a perfectly good Nina Simone standard in "Feeling Good" and do some other stuff with pop rock that once got compared to Radiohead but would probably actually just get remixed by Moby.

Biffy Clyro
Balance Not Symmetry (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Grief is the central theme to Jamie Adams’ film, Balance Not Symmetry. Biffy Clyro’s Simon Neil found a connection with the director and the film’s theme. This led to a certain amount of introspection in the emotionally charged soundtrack. The Scottish alt-rockers also find time for their usual stadium-ready anthems and a little experimentation.
  • Label(s):
  • Warner Bros

Muse
Reapers

The band behind such hits as "The Government Is Bad And Here's A Concept Album About It?" and "A Cover Of A Previously Good Nina Simone Song" go large with a RSD Exclusive 7" of "Reapers", taken from their latest and bleakest symphonic pop rock epic 'Drones'. It comes with a fold-it-yourself drone, which is basically just a paper airplane, but way weirder.

Prince
Sign 'O' The Times

Look people, this is literally Sign ‘O’ The Times by Prince. Arguably this is the purple one at the very peak of his hit-making powers. This Warner Bros reissue doesn’t appear to be remastered, and doesn’t come with a brace of demos / live tracks / whatever. It just makes an über-classic album available on wax again. Double LP.

Vangelis
Blade Runner

Composed by Vangelis for Ridley Scott's 1982 classic, the Blade Runner soundtrack has assumed legendary status amongst fans of synthesizer music. Its combination of classical compositions with synth work perfect mirrors the futuristic atmospheric ambient noir of the original film. A classic of the genre.

Neil Young
Time Fades Away

Time Fades Away is a live album comprised of entirely new material. Originally released in 1973, it is one of Neil Young’s more obscure albums, possibly due to the fact that it has been unavailable for more than 30 years and was never released on CD. It was recorded on the tour to support Harvest, Neil Young’s most commercially successful album to date. His backing band here are The Stray Gators, who backed him on the aforementioned Harvest.

Neil Young & Stray Gators
Tuscaloosa (Live)

More goodies from the Neil Young archives: Tuscaloosa, a 1973 concert recorded in Alabama with handy backing band The Stray Gators (who you heard on Harvest). The eleven-song tracklist features lots of treats from those golden early seventies Young albums. High-grade material, never released before until this day.

The Smiths
The Queen is Dead

'The Queen Is Dead' is thought by many to be the Smiths greatest achievement. Not for me, nothing with 'Vicar In A Tutu' on it should ever be considered a classic. However it does contain many of their greatest moments, the title track, 'There is a Light....' and 'Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others' to name but three. The Smiths at their confident best just before things started to go slightly wrong.

Deftones
White Pony

Whodathunk--writing an album description for Deftones’ White Pony. The band’s 2000 seminal album, when nu-metal started to incorporate a bunch of other sounds. Finally out on vinyl again. Includes your favorite hits from high school, such as Digital Bath and Change (In the House of Flies).

New Order
Technique

What. An. Album. This is the one where New Order took loads of drugs and went to Ibiza and came out with dance pop classic. The album is a shimmering beauty, perfectly matching their Mancunian guitar pop with the dancefloor sounds of the day. (Almost) every song is perfect. A brilliant ride start to finish.

Ten Tonnes
Ten Tonnes

Ten Tonnes - known to his ma and da as Ethan Barnett - drops his eponymous debut LP. This is a collection of well-heeled indie ditties that are likely to do good business at the festivals this summer. Assuming 2019 even gets a summer (the weather amirite?) There’s a ‘Two Doors Down’-era Mystery Jets vibe to cuts like ‘Better Than Me’ and ‘Lucy’.

Jenny Lewis
On The Line

Where has Jenny Lewis been for the last five years since her 2014 album 'The Voyager'? Anyway, the good news is that the former Riley Kilo singer has this new album where she is backed by a cast of quite legendary musicians including Ringo Starr, Beck and Don Was. There's always one or two good things in a Jenny Lewis LP so it may well be worth the wait.

Foals
Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Part 1

Oxford's second biggest band return with more stadium-sized teeth gnashing. It's part one of a two part extravaganza of new music that is said to be their most ambitious work yet with prog structures ambient interludes, the kitchen sink and lots of pontificating on the state of the world. You'll get this one first then once you've recovered, part 2 will follow later in the year.

Neil Young
Songs For Judy

Songs For Judy sees Neil Young delving into his rich archive again. This time, it’s a debut release for his own Shakey Pictures Records label. The album gathers together solo live recordings from November 1976. There are well-known classics such as Heart Of Gold, The Needle And The Damage Done and After Gold Rush coupled with early versions of songs such as White Line which wouldn’t appear in studio form until his 1990 album, Ragged Glory. This album’s USP, however, is No One Seems To Know - a song that has never been released anywhere before. Double LP on 140g vinyl and CD.

  • Warner Bros

Muse
Simulation Theory

When rock band Muse properly jumped the shark is probably very much up for debate, but I’d say that the Simulation Theory cover firmly settles the question in terms of their artwork. Looks like fan art. Anyway, this eighth studio album of theirs is full of colossal space-rock-pop, the kind of thing that these fellas really excel at. Big and dramatic and fun.

The Flaming Lips
Death Trippin’ At Sunrise: Rarities, B-Sides & Flexi-Discs 1986-1990

An extremely exciting release for all you fans of The Flaming Lips’ somewhat underrated earlier days. Death Trippin’ At Sunrise: delvers two LPs-worth of rare material, previously only sited on B-sides, compilations, and even flexi-discs, all dating from the chaotic yet fertile period 1986 to 1990. Double LP reissue from Warner Bros.

Suede
The Blue Hour

Well. They are back. David Bowie might be dead but Suede are still alive right? So everything is ok. This one follows on fairly swiftly from their successful 'comeback' LP 'Night Thoughts' and shares the line up with their classic 'Coming Up' record. Expect a lot of wrought songs about being outsiders in suburbia and wandering around the city feeling a bit isolated. 

Prince
Piano & A Microphone 1983

Prince presented himself to the world with consummate showmanship and an enigmatic persona that made his fans want to know even more about him. Piano & A Microphone gives fans a insight into his inspiration and songwriting process. Taken from a home-recorded cassette in dating from 1983, this album features Prince playing early versions of classics such as Purple Rain and Strange Relationship, along with a cover of Joni Mitchell’s ‘A Case Of You’. Available as an LP and CD package presented in a hardback book, vinyl LP and CD on Warner Bros.

The Flaming Lips
In A Priest Driven Ambulance

It's sometimes hard to recall when they are rolling round in oversized hamster balls and hanging round with Miley Cyrus that the Flaming Lips were once an incredible band. That's band not sideshow. In a Priest Driven Ambulance was their fourth album originally released in 1990 and features Jonathan Donahue (Mercury Rev) helping Wayne Coyne out with his skewed psychedelic vision.  

Neil Young
Hawks & Doves

No, Hawks & Doves is nothing to do with Cheshire rockers Doves. How could it be, given that, as it was first released in 1980, the members of Doves would have all still have been at primary school? Bet you wish you’d thought that through before opening your mouth and embarrassing yourself… Anyway, this an album by Neil Young, so there’s all that that entails. Nice songs etc.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Re-ac-tor

This is where it all began. Not Neil Young’s whole career, obviously, but the period of it where Young and his then-label Geffen started their legendary beef. Kicking off with 1981’s Re·ac·tor and lasting for most of the subsequent decade, Geffen were tearing their hair out at the fact that Young kept providing them with records that weren’t essentially Harvest Part 2. While Re·ac·tor is still more Neil Young-y than, say, Trans, the combination of heavy electric guitar and New Wave influences certainly ruffled a few feathers. It’s a great record.

Neil Young
This Note's For You

I know that this is an unfashionable opinion, but this particular Norman Records™ description writer thinks that Neil Young did his best work in the 1980’s. Albums like Trans and Everybody’s Rockin’ are either some of the all-time great musical shitposts, visionary records that simultaneously trailblaze and satirise the retro-maniacal curve of the decade, or both. 1988’s This Note’s For You manages to yoke together Young’s contemporaneous archness with some of his best mid-period songcraft. There’s also plenty of anti-corporate fire here - possibly something to do with the fact that his old label Geffen had just sued him for, in essence, not being Neil Young-y enough.

Sun Ra
Janus

Janus is a collection of tracks taken numerous rare and differing sources from Sun Ra and the band that followed him round so loyally. The tracks featured in this five-track record were recored between 1960 and 1970 and contain live and studio performances. Available on vinyl LP and released on Warners.

The Flaming Lips
Greatest Hits Vol. 1

I remember sitting by my radio cassette player one Sunday evening in 1986 with my finger poised to hit play and record simultaneously to record The Flaming Lips No.3 hit, Jesus Shooting Heroin. This is all lies of course. The Flaming Lips haven’t had any real chart hits as such, but they are releasing Greatest Hits Vol. 1 which is a sprawling 52 track 3 CD collection containing some of their best-loved songs and more obscure ditties from 1992 onward. It even includes that song that was only released on an MP3 stick inside a gummy skull. The LP version is a more concise and recognisable 11 track best of.

The Flaming Lips
Hear It is

Warner Brothers’ Flaming Lips reissue series continues with the band’s debut LP, 1986’s Hear It Is. This set is a world away from the Pet Sounds-ish maximalism of The Soft Bulletin. Across these ten tunes we find Wayne Coyne et al see-sawing between Barettian balladry (‘With You’, ‘Jesus Shootin’ Heroin’) and punk thrash (‘Just Like Before’, ‘Unplugged’).

The Flaming Lips
Telepathic Surgery

The Flaming Lips were building up a head of steam at the end of the 1980’s, but the band’s mainstream breakthrough was still a good few years off. As such, the LPs from this period see the Lips indulging both their love of classic rock acts like Pink Floyd and the experimental tendencies they inherited from … Pink Floyd. Case in point: 1989’s Telepathic Surgery, a record that has a fair heft of Pink Floyd to it. Proggy freakouts, sound collages, songs called ‘Hari-Krishna Stomp Wagon (Fuck Led Zeppelin)’, that sort of thing.

The Flaming Lips
Oh My Gawd!!!...The Flaming Lips

Oh My Gawd!!! indeed. 1987’s … The Flaming Lips is Wayne Coyne et al’s sophomore LP. Still half a decade off from their mainstream breakthrough ‘She Don’t Use Jelly’, the band let their classic rock fetishism run rampant on this record. Heavily indebted to The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath, the trio’s youthful exuberance comes through on the likes of opening cut ‘Everything’s Explodin’’. Now reissued with full(y horrendous) original artwork.

Liam Gallagher
Wall of Glass

"A man with a fork in a world full of soup" was brother Noel Gallagher's droll description of perma-angry brother Liam. However the latter's post Oasis music hasn't been significantly worse than his supposedly more talented brother. This, his first solo effort, is a vibrant, highly polished effort but crucially has that early Oasis swagger in the vocal.

The Flaming Lips
Seeing The Unseeable: The Complete Studio Recordings Of The Flaming Lips 1986-1990

Before signing a major label deal with Warner Bros, The Flaming Lips made four albums with Restless Records. Now you can buy all four: Hear It Is, Oh My Gawd, Telepathic Surgery and In A Priest Driven Ambulance (which some may argue is still their best album) plus a disc of rarities and The Mushroom Tapes (previously released as part of the The Day They Shot A Hole In The Jesus Egg comp) together as Seeing The Unseeable: The Complete Studio Recordings of The Flaming Lips. It documents the band’s first outing as a three piece to the point where the band included Jonathan Donahue of Mercury Rev fame. 6 CD Box Set on Warner Bros.

Neil Young
On The Beach

On The Beach is probably one of Neil Young’s lesser known albums, but it is right up there with his best work. Originally released in 1974 it was less commercial than its highly successful predecessor, Harvest - a typical curve ball from a man who doesn’t like to stand still for too long.

Biffy Clyro
MTV Unplugged (Live At Roundhouse, London)

Seemingly 20-odd years late to the party, Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro follow in the footsteps of  Nirvana, Pearl Jam and REM by recording an MTV Unplugged set, Live from The Roundhouse, London. All the classics are here in stripped back acoustic form: Machines, The Captain, Black Chandelier, Re-Arrange, to name a few. The set also features a cover of The Beach Boys classic, God Only Knows and a new song, Different Kind Of Love. Double vinyl LP, CD+DVD set and CD on Warner bros.

Liam Gallagher
As You Were

Ex-Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher announces his long awaited solo debut album. Oasis fans will be very happy, Liam has stated that it is not a space jazz odyssey or any bizarre out there stuff, just straight up, Rolling Stones influenced classics done how he wants them. Comes in a variety of options and formats including limited white vinyl on Warner Bros.

Damien Rice
O

Esteemed heartbroken man Damien Rice used to make extremely loud and haughty folk songs with the help of the wonderful musician Lisa Hannigan. You may well remember "Cannonball" and "Delicate", or maybe the more trad, groan-alongisms of "Cheers Darlin'". Whatever the case, this dude was immensely popular once and this reissue of O stretches to sixteen tracks with four bonus recordings.

Neil Young
Roxy – Tonight’s the Night Live

Roxy - Tonight’s The Night Live was recorded on the opening night of the famous club on L.A.’s Sunset Strip in September 1973. Neil Young, with his backing band, The Santa Monica Flyers - Ben Keith, Nils Lofgren, Billy Talbot and Ralph Molina took to the stage to play a set of new material that would eventually make up the 1975 album Tonight’s The Night. Neil Young was reeling from the drug-related deaths of two friends, musician Danny Whitten and roadie, Bruce Berry, consequently there’s a cathartic energy to the live recording.

Angelo Badalamenti
Twin Peaks – Fire Walk With Me

Can’t go wrong with this deeply classic soundtrack work from Angelo Badalamenti can you? David Lynch’s Twin Peaks spin-off film Fire Walk With Me features variations on the series’ key themes, plus new music and appearances from Julee Cruise and Thought Gang, which is Badalamenti’s musical project with Lynch. Vinyl reissue from Warner Bros.

Prince and the Revolution
Purple Rain (2015 Paisley Park Remaster)

Seriously exciting stuff here for Prince fans: as well as a remastered version of the deeply classic album Purple Rain, the CD versions of this reissue also include a whole disc of contemporary tracks from the great one’s immense and closely guarded archives, which haven’t even been bootlegged before! Revel in the rarities. On Warner Bros.

Mastodon
The Hunter

‘The Hunter’ is US stoner rock band Mastodon's first non concept album since ‘Remission’ (2002). It contains no elements of classical music and is pure, heavy rock. The album includes a song composed and sung entirely by drummer Brann Dailor who also features on vocals on several other tracks.

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Zuma

Released in the same year as Tonight’s The Night, Zuma was more of a straightforward (but still a classic) Neil Young & Crazy Horse album. It features the live favourite Cortez The Killer and Don’t Cry No Tears which has been covered by Teenage Fanclub. There’s also an appearance from his old pals Crosby, Stills and Nash.

Neil Young
Hitchhiker

Hey look, it's a new old Neil Young record ! Originally recorded in 1976 in Malibu, California, these 10 tracks see Young in acoustic bard mode, with nought but his guitar and voice to craft them from. While some of these songs have resurfaced in other forms, these stripped-back takes were all recorded in a single session. Maybe it'll solve the mystery of why he's so sad at the beach.

Neil Young + Promise of the Real
Paradox

If you weren’t excited enough about the fact that you can soon Netflix & chill with the ‘Godfather of Grunge’, he’s got a new album out too. Neil Young & The Promise Of The Real have soundtracked Paradox - the aforementioned Netflix film in which Young stars - and the LP features Neil Young doing plenty of Neil Young-type stuff.

The Flaming Lips
Scratching The Door: The First Recordings Of The Flaming Lips

In the press release for Scratching The Door: The First Recordings of The Flaming Lips, it credits them with two decades of musical boundary pushing, it’s nearer four decades, not that I wish to be pedantic, but credit where credit’s due, right? Anyway, this is exactly what it says it is, recordings from the earliest days (1983) of the Oklahoma experimental rockers. So early in fact that it's Mark Coyne and not his brother Wayne on lead vocal duties. Remastered by Dave Fridmann with help from Wayne Coyne and Michael Ivins. CD on Warner Bros.

Captain Beefheart & The Magic Band
Sun Zoom Spark: 1970 to 1972

The weird anachronistic blues rock of Captain Beefheart is celebrated in 'Sun Zoom Spark', a monstrous boxset which collects four of his early 70s recordings: 'Like My Decals Off, Baby', 'The Spotlight Kid', 'Clear Spot' and a record of out-takes called all appear. 'Sun Zoom Spark' is a good find for newly initiated Beefheart fans who want to go further into his story, as well as for completlist fans out there. 

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Rust Never Sleeps

Classic Album Alert! Famously Canadian singer-songwriter guy -- that has a great voice and is actually very good -- Neil Young sees an album that he did in '79 with raucous band Crazy Horse reissued on pristine 180g vinyl. For the most part recorded live, with a few studio overdubs, it's an energetic and dynamically enlivening record. Young coined the phrase Rust Never Sleeps to avoid complacency and try a more positive and progressive approach to live performance. On Warner Bros.

Mini Dresses
Mini Dresses

Straight outta Boston and almost impossible to google this band play the sort of slo-fi music comparable with Beach House and Mazzy Star but also have the wobbly jangle of large swathes of the Sarah Records back catalogue. Initially a home recording project, the Mini Dresses have already quietly amassed an impressive set of their dreamy pop songs.

It’s only the first five Arry Porra film soundtracks, and all. From ‘Theme of Troll Bogies’ to ‘I Shouldn’t Have Told You That, Pt. 2’, this is a serious collector’s piece for fans of the various scores by John Williams, Patrick Doyle and Nicholas Hooper.

Red Hot Chili Peppers
Greatest Hits

Greatest Hits by one of the USA’s biggest alternative rock bands, Red Hot Chili Peppers was originally released in 2003. It contains 16 of their most popular songs including Under The Bridge, Give it Away and Californication. This reissue is pressed on 140g silver vinyl and housed in a gatefold sleeve.

Prince
When Doves Cry

Warner Bros present a series of Prince reissues, this time focused on 12” singles. Reissued in their original vinyl formats with the original artwork and their original B-sides, these singles are available again just as they were meant to be experienced. When Doves Cry, the lead single from the Purple Rain album, is backed with the song ‘17 Days’.

The Smiths
The Queen Is Dead (2017 Master) [Deluxe Edition]

Another magical example of when a single LP gets turned into a 5LP box set. The Smiths 4th best album finally gets the big set treatment with demos, b-sides live tracks and a DVD featuring Derek Jarman's short film made to accompany the original release. A must for all fans of this most special of bands. "Slip them into different sleeves! Buy both, and feel deceived".

Neil Young & Crazy Horse
Live Rust

Here is a re-issue of Neil Young's late '70s live album which was recorded on his 'Rust Never Sleeps' tour of 1978. It was recorded in various venues across the US and features his classic ragged band Crazy Horse backing him on songs from his recent album alongside earlier classics. 180g vinyl re-issue. 

Neil Young
Decade

Here's a lad that needs no introduction -- yes, it's Neil Young. Decade compiled no fewer than 35 (thirty-five!) of Young's songs committed to tape between the years of 1966 and 1976. The album features five tracks that had been previously unavailable. The Warner brothers have reissued this outstanding record as a triple vinyl LP in a double-gatefold sleeve. And I got through all that without even saying the word: G**ius.

Out of the various permutations of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, this was the only collaboration between Stephen Stills and Neil Young. The 1976 album follows in a similar West Coast folk vein to their parent band Buffalo Springfield but there's moments of jazz and synthesised strings to give a more modern feel.  

Neil Young
Comes a Time

After all the earth-scorched rock songs and talk of killin', Neil Young decided to draw back into his folksy shell, following up Zuma and American Stars 'N Bars with a soft country record not a far cry from his classic Harvest. This record's eponymous track is one of his most beautiful and the record's sepia-tinged sparsity proves delicacy to be his strongest point.    

Neil Young
American Stars 'n Bars

Essentially, American Stars 'n Bars is the album Neil Young made after he was done making the classics now firmly established in the old rock man canon. It's a grab-bag of old additional recordings that hadn't quite made it before and features his swirling, semi-proggy "Like a Hurricane", which would later find itself a fan favourite. Heartland and heavy, it feels like a solid continuation of Zuma. 

Faith No More
King For A Day, Fool For A Lifetime

King For A Day Fool, For A Lifetime was the fifth album by Faith No More and was originally released in 1995. It was the follow-up to their classic Angel Dust. The album was the band’s first without influential guitarist Jim Martin which meant a change in direction for them. This reissue comes with a second disc of B-sides and rarities, including their Bee Gees cover, I Started A Joke.

Prince and the Revolution
I Would Die 4 U

Reissued in their original vinyl formats with the original artwork and their original B-sides, these singles are available again just as they were meant to be experienced. Here we’ve got the extended 12” mix of I Would Die 4 U, plus the Prince Christmas tune ‘Another Lonely Christmas’.

Prince and the Revolution
Let’s Go Crazy

Warner Bros present a series of Prince reissues, this time focused on 12” singles. Reissued in their original vinyl formats and with their original B-sides, these singles are available again just as they were meant to be experienced. This one has the exciting ‘Special Dance Mix’ of Let’s Go Crazy on the A, and ‘Erotic City’ on the B.

Royal Blood
How Did We Get So Dark?

Young British guitar-drums pairing Royal Blood have, as their press release makes clear, done very well for themselves since they made their debut in 2014. Can they keep the upward momentum flowing with follow-up How Did We Get So Dark? Well, quite possibly on the basis of these driving groovy rock tunes. Out on Warner Bros.

Gimme Danger: The Story Of The Stooges - Music From The Motion Picture

Gimme Danger is Jim Jarmusch’s new documentary film about The Stooges, a band who I really don’t need to introduce you to. This Music From The Motion Picture release contains a tasty brace of Stooges classics, carefully selected to give an overview of the band’s story. The CD version also includes some cuts from other acts like The Iguanas and MC5. CD and LP editions on Rhino.

Angelo Badalamenti
Twin Peaks

Can’t go wrong with this deeply classic soundtrack work from Angelo Badalamenti can you? The towering synth melodies and luscious instrumentation of that main theme can cut directly to the heart of anyone who’s watched David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, and this vinyl reissue arrives just in time for the broadcast of the new series. Reissued by Warner Bros.

Mastodon
Emperor Of Sand

Mastodon, the band recognised by all as one of metal’s most forward-thinking acts, return with full-length album number eight. Emperor Of Sand is all about mortality and doom, told through an extended tale about a man sentenced to death in a magic desert. With fierce heavy riffs and all the other fine trappings of hard-rock of course. Out on Warner Bros.

Neil Young
Official Release Series Discs 8.5-12

A big heavy box full of Neil Young albums, all pressed to heavyweight 180g vinyl. Discs 8.5 to 12 of the Official Release Series encompasses Young’s later-70’s albums, including the excellent live-with-Crazy Horse double whammy of Rust Never Sleeps and Live Rust. Plus three other albums. Five albums on six LPs, packed in a box by Warner Bros.

Formation
Look At The Powerful People

After a few EPs cultivating their sound Formation have landed a deal with Warner Bros and are ready to drop their debut full length. Anthemic catchiness brought with a disco groove, post-punk grit, and positivity. Features some reworked tracks from their back catalogue, crossing sweaty and uplifting.

Prince and the Revolution
Kiss

Well, blimey, this is the easiest and hardest record to describe to you folks. Prince And The Revolution’s Kiss is just that, a big old smooch of funking rock ‘n’ roll pop, a true classic, which will outlast anything I could possibly say about it. A reissued 12” with extended version of Kiss and ♥ or $ (Love Or Money).

Prince and The New Power Generation
Cream

An enormous portion of Cream here from Prince and The New Power Generation. This 12” EP contains nine versions of the classic track, from the original album version to ‘Housebangers’, ‘Get Some Solo’ and ‘Ethereal’ mixes. Of course, all of them have that crucial Prince sex-funk running through them. 12” reissue on Warner Bros.

Prince
If I Was Your Girlfriend

A classic single by the legend that is Prince, reissued in proper 12” style. 1986’s If I Was Your Girlfriend is a tender exploration of intimate platonic relationships, sung over slapped bass and sexy synths. And on the B-side, you can find an extended 12” version of ‘Shockadelica’. Reissued 12” on Warner Bros.

Prince
U Got The Look

A classic single by the legend that is Prince, reissued in proper 12” style. 1988’s U Got The Look features a guest vocal from Sheena Easton, and is presented here in two different mixes. And on the B-side, you can find two different versions of ‘Housequake’. Reissued 12” on Warner Bros.

Banks & Steelz
Anything But Words

Here is the collaboration that no-one could have expected...or indeed asked for. Funny haired Interpol leader Paul Banks hooking up with Wu Tang's RZA. The result is the kind of rap rock we could only have dreamt of back in the '80s. Careful what you wish for though - they make strange bedfellows these two.

Prince
Let's Pretend We're Married

When Prince makes the proposition Let's Pretend We’re Married to you, you know you are in for a hell of an evening. Especially if you take a look at the sleeve art too… This was one of the singles from the smash album 1999, and comes backed with the original B-side ‘Irresistable Bitch’. 12” single reissued by Warner Bros.

Neil Young
Peace Trail

Peace Trail features ten tracks that see Neil Young taking an acoustic approach once again. After recording a couple of albums with Promise Of The Real, including his recent live opus Earth, he has decided to simplify things and work as three piece with Jim Keltner  and Paul Bushnell backing him on drums and bass respectively. The album was recorded at Rick Rubin’s studio, Shangri-La, and produced by Neil Young produced along with Jim Hanlon.

Code Orange
Forever

Code Orange have released their third album entitled Forever. The American band based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania bring about a refreshing burst of industrial hardcore onto a scene that is flooded with mediocre metal. Each album they release eats away at ‘genre-norms’ and instead present a medley of musical madness. Available on Vinyl LP and CD.

Biffy Clyro
Ellipsis

Only recently recovered from the indignity of being filed under Clyro in our increasingly eccentric filing system, here is a new record from enormously popular and enormously tattooed Scottish power rock trio Biffy Clyro. The band describe the record as more of a punch in the nose than a cuddle and it continues their breed of massive complex poppy hi-end rock music.

  • Warner Bros

The Faces
First Step

After Steve Marriott left to form Humble Pie the remaining Small Faces continued as The Faces. Here we have a reissue of their first album from 1970 through Warner. If you wanna hear where the hell Ron Wood and Rod Stewart came from (maybe where they appeared), this is a damn fine rock album you need.

Trainspotting - Music From The Motion Picture

Trainspotting was massive, you already know that. It also had an absolutely incredible lineup of artists on the soundtrack that stands on its own as a great collection of tracks that share the severe ups and downs of the film. Includes Iggy Pop, New Order, Blur, Underworld, Lou Reed, Pulp, Leftfield, Brian Eno and Damon Albarn.

Red Hot Chili Peppers
The Getaway

One of the biggest bands in the world, Red Hot Chilli Peppers need no introduction. What will be of interest however is that their new album, The Getaway, their first for five years, was co-produced by Danger Mouse, who’s had his fingers in a lot of pies production-wise and Nigel Godrich, most famously connected to Radiohead.

Royal Blood
Royal Blood

Rock two-piece Royal Blood have paid their dues doing lots of pleasant tearing up of shit in quaint environments, and are now set to release their self-titled debut, featuring the two singles that have won them love so far: "Little Monster" and "Come On Over". The record continues to try and amp everything up to a volume dial that reads MAX, so you can be overwhelmed by the drumming, roll with Ben Thatcher's gruesome vocal snarl and enjoy some nice old fashioned riffage.
