Headcount Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
We loved his debut self titled album from last year which promised a new talent who could get close to the classic 80s indie songwriters like Roddy Frame or Paddy McAloon. Kamran Khan has the sort of talent that it's hard to bottle - a fluid melodicism that makes his dream pop glide above everything else in the genre.

French upstart—and Youtube sensation—Ta-Ra (formerly known as Ta-Ha) drops her debut vinyl release with ‘SunrayZ’, a mini LP showcasing her trademark ethereal R&B. She’s dark and brooding on ‘Kawasaki Ninja’, and chill and dreamy on ‘Death Ray’, but it’s her syrupy, molasses-soaked vocals that hold it all together seamlessly.

NxxxxxS or N-five X-s (yep thats how they want us to pronounce it) are back with a twelve track record entitled Remember Last Summer. This fairly independent rap/hip-hop group have given us a record that combines 'gangster' styled sampling and meshed it together with chilling horror film vibes. Available on Vinyl LP on Headcount and will include a download code for listening on the go.
Tuneful indie-pop from London/Berlin based Kamran Khan who has worked tirelessly to create his take on the ever popular jangle-pop genre. There sure are some lovely sounds in here and this sensitive literate pop cold appeal to fans of the likes of Wild Nothing, Hoops and further back to Belle and Sebastien.
Steve Jansen was of course the drummer in Japan, but this album is his debut solo record, first released ten years ago. That said, Slope does feature a whole host of guests, from Sweet Billy Pilgrim and Joan As Policewoman to Japan frontman David Sylvian himself. Lovely boutique art-pop, here receiving its first ever vinyl pressing, courtesy of Headcount Records. Limited to 300 copies.
Steve Jansen was of course the drummer in Japan but since then he has recorded with such luminaries as Ryuichi Sakamoto & Bernd Friedmann. This is his second solo album and blends songs and instrumental passages and features his delicate orchestral synth compositions and his characteristic drum patterns.
Kadhja Bonet makes her recording debut with this EP for Headcount. Dwelling in Los Angeles, it's hard not to hear a little of the Flying Lotus / Brainfeeder influence in Bonet’s psychedelically-tinged jazzy sound. She writes and sings electronic neo-R&B music, but with plenty of that spacey flair. This release adds 4 previous singles to The Visitor’s 6 tracks.
Having put her vocals to tracks by Lapalux and Odesza, Jade Pybus strikes out on her own in full force by preceding her upcoming full length with an EP bundled with a selection of other tracks and a release exclusive. Working with Throwing Snow on the EP and George Fitzgerald on Lungs, alongside a remix by Mr. Mitch.
