Thurston Moore
Sun Gift Earth

Even Thurston Moore thinks cassettes are cool. The ex-Sonic Youth guitarist is releasing the space rock songs that comprise 'Sun Gift Earth' on Blank Tapes ahead of his new solo record, 'The Best Day'. Apparently he's singing to a spacecraft on "Rosetta / 67p Churyumov-Gerasimenko", and other than Spiritualized, I can't ...view item »

Bass Clef
May The Bridges I Burn Light The Way

Bass Cleft. Hahaha. I've always wanted to write that because I'm a total idiot! After all, Ralph (Bass Clef) won't mind, he's a right lovely chap. After the Wire magazine got all excited over his atmospheric debut with the really long title, follow up 'May The Bridges I Burn Light The Way' is more blatantly designed for the sweaty recesses of party...view item »

Bass Clef
A Smile is a Curve That Straightens Most Things

We know a man called Ralph & after sniggering at his silly name for two years we've now had to eat a whole skipload of humble pie cos he's just delivered this rather ace experimental grime/dubstep album under his nom de plume BASS CLEF (cue more sniggering - sounds like cleft!) After realising i have the...view item »

Zun Zun Egui
Bal La Poussiere EP

I've been waiting a while for this Zun Zun Egui EP to arrive and it's been totally worth the wait. For those of you who have not encountered the band before I advise you to check them out next time they tour. Highly skilled and super enthusiastic players ZZE are a total treat for the ears. They mash up western and eastern influences so effortless i...view item »

Zun Zun Egui
Kass To La Sènn EP

ZZE return with the long overdue follow up to last years excellent 'Bal La Poussiere' EP and again, it's a total winner. Here we are treated to two wildy confident compositions that match the cosmic with the sub-tropical to create vast and epically groovy tunage. A side 'Speedball' seems to touch on a little of everything from Krautrock, cosmic ...view item »

Spring Tides
Hostile Takeover

Spring Tides: 'Hostile Takeover' (Blank Tapes), dubbed as "Unreal World Music", the press release says Word but I think it's a typo... first track comes across a tight update on the much imitated of late punk-funk sound with unfathomable African (Ghanaian) lyrics, second track is a melodica & flute led, ahem...melody striding on top o...view item »

Bass Clef
Promises (Appleblim & Peverelist Remix)

At last, at fucking last. A beast of a week here at Normans and we try to review everything we can, so many records fall through the holes and disappear never be seen again so even if we hate something or just think its ok we try to tell you about it. Speed reviewing is the only way to try to cover everything but after trawling through my massiv...view item »

Bass Clef
Zamyatin Tapes Vol 2

Bass Clef - Zamyatin Tapes Vol 2- 12" only- A side - a cross between MIA minus the vocals to start with, then becomes more bassy. Resonant of early hip hop, the repetitive beats are interspersed with trancy, chill out riffs - takes me back to the quiet / ...view item »

Thee Stranded Horse
Churning Strides

Blank Tapes, the label that brought us Bass Clef, shift the goal posts on fans of dubstep with the new-folk type rambling prose of Thee, Stranded Horse: "Churning Strides". Inside we are treated to kora and guitar led ballads in English and French. Misty eyed, doleful with heartbreaking tones, especially the cracked, half whispered vocals. For fa...view item »

Bass Clef
The Opera EP

The second 12" 'Opera' from BASS CLEF drops this week with 3 cuts lifted from his stonking debut album. 'Cannot be straightened' is a bottom end wobbler that requires you to wear a nappy at the soundclash such is the enormity of the faeces inducing stuttering bassline. No messin'. I can just see it now. A crowd of spliffed up ra...view item »
