Endon
Boy Meets Girl

Endon are a Japanese noise-metal band. The noise they make is widely described as catastrophic. They seem to operate by balancing elements that don’t necessarily fit together - ferocity and vulnerability, terrifying noise and fun - and in the case of their new album Boy Meets Girl, love and horror. LP and CD on Thrill Jockey.

Teeth Of The Sea
Wraith

New one from genre-manglers Teeth of The Sea, ‘Wraith’ is the long awaited follow up to 2015’s brilliant ‘Highly Deadly Black Tarantula’. If first cut ‘Hireath’ is anything to go by, then the group are on stellar form, fusing battle-ready dub bass with stuttering drums and horns that blare wildly in opposition with each other.

Theon Cross
Fyah

Theon Cross is likely best known for being the tuba player in the Mercury Price nominated and Wire Magazine album of the year winning Sons of Kemet. Cross plays the tuba with a deftness and fluency that it feels like he's fighting the instrument's identity. The result is a sound all his own, and on Fyah is given a wonderful platform to flex by his band of London's current wave of jazz musicians.

The Idealist
Inner Space Dub / The Fire Of Moses Dub (feat. Genesis Breyer P-Orridge)

Dub so spacious it makes the Grand Canyon look like a pot hole from The Idealist on the ever-interesting Hoga Nord. Inter Space Dub is minimal and psychedelic and anchored by an absolutely irrefutable sample. On the other side The Idealist connects dub with industrial and gets Throbbing Gristle's Genesis Breyer P-Orridge on vocals.

Shiken Hanzo
The Centipede

Shiken Hanzo deals in an oppressive kind of dub electronics. This is dub as sci-fi dystopia, creeping dread, ticking and anxious rhythms that reveals a sense of restless paranoia. But this four-track 12” is a thrilling world to the explore, and certainly up your street if your into the more doom-laden end of the hardcore continuum.
  • Vinyl 12" (A14-05)

Future Glue
Devil's Pulpit EP

Glasgow group Future Glue have the sleazy twang of americana, but the bark and bite of post-punk. Like, say, The Cramps or The Gun Club, they observe that the gap between the two need not be large, and maneuver between these styles with a debauched sense of swagger, as displayed on four-tracker ‘Devils Pulpit EP’.

Phantoms vs Fire
WLDLFE

Phantoms vs Fire takes as his core theme here the destructive relationship that humanity has with our natural environment… with beats! WLDLFE is a lush but dark listen, with synths that have a beautiful but melancholy shine to them and evocative melodies. WLDLFE is released by Blackjack Illuminist Records.

audiobooks
Friends In The Bubble Bath Remixes

Everyone is a fan of audiobooks except us at Norman Records. And maybe that's not fair on the others who work here  - it probably just comes down to me not liking them. I tell you who does like them though, Welsh songstress Gwenno, and the guy from Factory Floor both of which are really happy to provide remixes. (David) Wrench does a mix too but he's already in the band so doesn't count.

Desperate Journalist
In Search of the Miraculous

As someone whose job involves a bit of journalist adjacent work, or as other people call it, "writing", I can't help but feel attacked by the name Desperate Journalist have gone for. But I must be unbiased. In Search of the Miraculous is the goth-y rock band's third album and lives its title. Big choruses, big solos, big euphoria.

R. Stevie Moore
Afterlife

R. Stevie moore is the curmudgeonly, misanthropic pioneer of lo-fi and DIY music. His prolificacy puts the likes of Robert Pollard to shame with over 200 self-released albums and 30-odd official releases. He has been working away at his craft, mostly unnoticed, for 50 years. His new LP, Afterlife, is mastered by Kramer and include guest performances from Ariel Pink, Jason Falkner, Lane Steinberg and Irwin Chusid, the man who coined the term ‘Outsider Music’ when referring to the likes of Moore. LP and Cd on Bar-None.

Rob
Rob

Despite his unassuming moniker Rob was one of the most vital Ghanaian artists of the 1970s. After cutting his teeth with the acclaimed Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou, Rob released a couple of solo LPs toward the end of the decade. Make It Fast, Make It Slow is his best-known, but his eponymous 1977 debut is a similarly delightful piece of West African funk-soul. Now we find the rare gem reissued by Mr. Bongo.
  • Vinyl LP (MRBLP166)

Patricia
Heavy Merging

Another record of warm, slightly weird techno from Patricia here. Heavy Merging finds the Brooklyn-based artist returning to Opal Tapes sub-label Black Opal (J. Albert, Cloudface). This is an EP of muted club tackle characterised by lo-fi drum takes and watercolour synths. Think Huerco S. dropping something via Analogical Force.

Nyah Fearties
A Tasty Heidfu'

Nyah Fearties released this scraggy old thing in 1986, and it has been a secret jewel of the Glasgow underground music scene ever since. The Nyah Fearties sound is kind of Celtic-folk via post-punk and (genuinely) industrial percussion. All very Scottish. Now a proper full vinyl reissue, thanks to the Good Energy label!

Hejira
Thread Of Gold

Hejira’s new album Thread Of Gold engages with the Ethiopian cultural roots of band-leader Rahel Debebe-Dessalegne, with songwriting beginning on a band trip to Addis Ababa. The results ended up as these rich songs of life-filled pop: vocal harmonies, grooves, the odd field recording, and an all-round sense of personality. On Lima Limo.

Du Blonde
Lung Bread For Daddy

Du Blonde is the alter ego of Beth Jeans Houghton, whose first album Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose (2012) was released under her own name with the backing band The Hooves Of Destiny. Since then she has made one previous album under the Du Blonde moniker, Welcome Back To Milk (2015). Her new album, Lung Bread For Daddy sees her taking from both previous albums, mixing proto-punk, psych rock and ‘70s songwriter styles. Lyrically she is unflinching in her catharsis with themes of loneliness, anxiety and the problems arising from living in too many different places. LP and CD on Moshi Moshi.

Dolphin Midwives
Liminal Garden

Sage Fisher came to the conclusion that Dolphin Midwives was a good moniker for a band and so this the name that heads up this lovely album of harp, voice and electronic processing. The album is a tranquil ride through the natural world blending organic and electronic sounds with a little help from Jason Powers (The Decemberists) in the producers chair.

Espectrostatic

Alex Cuervo is, by night, Espectrostatic! Under this name he mines the rich world of sounds and tropes that vintage horror movie soundtracks have given us over the years. Silhouette is original music that carries that spooky flavour you love so much, and it's released in a fancy vinyl edition by Burning Witches Records.

Julia Jacklin
Crushing

Julia Jacklin drops the eagerly-awaited follow-up to her 2016 debut LP Don’t Let The Kids Win. Crushing is another record of thoughtful, impressive indie-rock in the Angel Olsen/Cate Le Bon vein. ‘Head Alone’s chorus of ‘you can’t love somebody without using your hands’ proves that Jacklin is also one of the funnier singer-songwriters operating today.

Judy Pollak featuring 33 1/3
In Togetherness

In the late 1970’s, Judy Pollak hit the studio with her group 33 ⅓ and made In Togetherness, a record with major soul credentials. Dangerously rare in its original pressing, we can now enjoy Pollak’s work with ease thanks to this Athens Of The North reissue. Direct, heartfelt, funky music, with Judy’s particular vocal style a real pleasure.

Field recordings, unidentifiable samples, percussion and instruments: all are brought together and placed in fine balance with one another for compelling and original tracks. 12” EP.

Simon Scott
Soundings

Simon Scott recently got back into his old role, as drummer for the freshly reformed Slowdive, but he never stopped with his more abstract work. Soundings was put together in many hotel rooms during tours, and mix together evocative field recordings with all manner of electronic sounds and processes. Soundings makes for a properly Touch album.

King Midas Sound
Solitude

Sardonically released on Valentine's Day, this is the best one yet from King Midas Sound, once again stripped back to the duo of Kevin Martin (The Bug/Techno Animal) and poet/music-maker Roger Robinson. The tone is icy and bitter, the many narrations consumed by spiteful jealousy in a post-brakeup haze. All the rhythmic pulse of dub has now subsided, a wraith-like presence which blankets Robinson's malice fuelled spoken word.

Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement
Venus Flytrap Exotica

Dominick Fernow (Prurient) and Phillippe Hallais (Low Jack) reunite as Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement for another cut of humid dub dread. ‘Venus Flytrap Excotica’ is aptly titled, relocating the dance-floor in the depths of the jungle, with this sense of being entwined in a mass wildlife, straying further and further outwards from civilisation.

Dez Williams
Retribution

Sledgehammer rhythms achieve catharsis not monotony on ‘Retribution’ by Dez Williams. The five-track 12” features two remixes from fellow beat-botherers Binny and Shredder, that both maintain this sense of restless propulsion, forwards the only possible answer. It’s a kind of gleeful menace, eyes stretched wide open and body moving amid the carnage.

Spellling
Mazy Fly

Intriguing new one from Sacred Bones act SPELLING. The album tackles the dual realities of technological progress - the utopian and the apocalyptic - while backed by music that can flit from garbled R&B to scuzzy synth jams. ‘Mazy Fly’s’ 12-tracks reflect SPELLING’s seemingly contradictory impulses and finds a unique synthesis being formed from these seemingly combative forces.

Cosey Fanni Tutti
Tutti

Tutti is Cosey Fanni Tutti's first solo album since 1982's Time to Tell, and is an exploration of her self, life and art. It was created to be the soundtrack to Harmonic Coumaction, a film about Tutti. The album features the unsettling pounding synths we've come to expect from the Throbbing Gristle crew but is made more personal in how Tutti incorporates other elements.

Susanna & the Brotherhood of Our Lady
Garden of Earthly Delights

Hieronymus Bosch, other than having one of the all time great names, was one of the greatest and most visionary painters ever to have lived. A compelling starting point for an album then, as Susanna & the Brotherhood of Our Lady show on Garden of Earthy Delights. Susanna has drawn from Bosch's ability to find beauty in the sinful and the disgusting, and the ugly in the saintly and alluring.

Phenomenally successful electronics guy Bonobo has compiled a mix for you. What a nice man. He's put a few of his own tracks on there including an unreleased one but then he's put some fellow travellers on there such as Joey Beltran, DJ Seinfeld, Throwing Snow and loads and loads of people I haven't heard of.

Bayonne
Drastic Measures

Well Bayonne's previous album Primitives was rather excellent indeed. For those not in the know it was a fantastic sprawl through a world slightly similar to that of Animal Collective or Grizzly Bear. Now the man who brought you all this Roger Sellers is back with a new work which we are hoping to be just as good.

John Baker & The BBC Radiophonic Workshop
The Vendetta Tapes

The Vendetta Tapes is a collection of rare cues, tunes and sonic oddities lovingly crafted by John Baker & The Radiophonic Workshop for a 1960’s mafia caper TV show. Much of this has never been released before, and plenty of truly fascinating sounds are sprinkled all over. The CD has ten more tracks than the vinyl. On Buried Treasure.

You could let it colour your room, or you could follow his songcraft: your choice. This reissue is remastered from the original tapes.

Compiled by Alan Gubby of psych-experimenters Revbjelde Strange Angels presents the first release of Yuri Morozov to the west, after recording for over 40 years and producing more than 46 albums that covered prog, psych, industrial, experimental electronics akin to Radiophonic Workshop, and freak out folk. Being banned and monitored by the KGB means this is the first time this stuff has been on vinyl and CD.

Kumasi
I Know You Feel It

Kumasi were a enigmatic South African disco funk four-piece whose members also made up The Cannibals and Stimela. Due to the musicians being contracted elsewhere at the time, they weren’t allowed to reveal their identities, hence the enigma. I Know You Feel It was their only album recorded in the early '80s. Here we have 5 tracks from the album along with the South African classic track, Picnic. Double LP on Smiling C.

Klein & MBO / Warrior
MBO Theme

Rush Hour reissue this eternal Italo disco proto-house classic from 1983, which was spun around Chicago and New York by legendary DJs like Frankie Knuckles, Ron Hardy and Larry Levan. Klein & MBO were Mario Boncaldo and Tony Carrasco who were also responsible for the equally classic 'Dirty Talk' from 1982. What makes this particular edition of 'MBO Theme' so tantalizing is the mega-rare addition of South African band Warrior's cover version on the flipside - created in response to the lack of availability of import copies of the original.

Ruins
Occasional Visits

Happy Valentine’s Day from Belgium’s excellent Stroom Records (Pablo’s Eye, DJ Bert & Eagle). The label’s latest drop is a superb collection of early minimal wave/synth-pop from Venetian group Ruins. Active between 1978 and 1985, the group turned out a run of highly evocative Italo LPs during their time together. Occasional Visit collects eight of the best tunes they set to tape between 1981 and 1984. You can imagine a young David Lynch getting lost in these when they first came out.

Charles Ditto

In Human Tems is the 1988 debut album of Charles Ditto, a fellow with a fine collection of midi-synths and the melodic and experimental instincts to put them to great use. The sounds (lots of Rolands) are distinctly of their time, but that doesn’t stand in the way of one's enjoyment of the odd-pop structures that Ditto puts them into. Reissued by Telephone Explosion.

The wonderful thing is that you can distinguish each producers’ own elements, but they still coalesce into a perfect whole. 12” on Celeste’s Peach Discs.

A Thousand Strands is their debut album but contains material recorded between 1975 and 2015. Legendary comic book writer Alan Moore contributes vocals, lyrics and sleeve notes.

TSR
Terror Shit

Given that they specialise in hard-as-owt club bangers we’re going to assume that the RIOT Radio label (Neil Landstrumm, Cannibal Cooking Club) didn’t get their name from The Dead 60’s mid-2000’s indie-ska hit. The manic DJ tackle served up on TSR’s Terror Shit EP is a sort of mish-mash of Super Rhythm Trax-style acid, ghetto bass tweakers and the kind of industrial-strength hell-raisers you find released by Power Vacuum. In short, it’s wicked. Terror Shit contains three TSR originals and a remix of ‘Major Pump’ by Modulator.

Scottish imprint RIOT Radio is rapidly making a name for itself as one of the most exciting new labels in hard techno. The label’s latest drop, an EP from Berlin’s LADO, only adds to its case. Rampage contains four wedges of hard, industrial club fare. That’s two LADO originals (‘Wings Of The Antichrist’ and ‘I Walk With Gun’) as well as remixes from Endlec and D. Carbone. It doesn’t really matter who’s at the controls, mind - everything on Rampage will tear the roof off the club.

The duo look to particular time for Napoli - the 70s and 80s - when there were all these different currents of sound vibrantly mingling, and in doing so create a lush love letter.

David Sylvian
Alchemy: An Index of Possibilities

Alchemy: An Index of Possibilities was the second solo album by David Sylvian. The album is made up of two projects coming together, hence the use of the word alchemy in the title. Both projects were worked on in 1985, in between Sylvian's Brilliant Trees and Gone To Earth albums, and featured help from a number of creative types. Avant-garde composer Jon Hassell, Can’s Holger Czukay, Robert Fripp of King Crimson, Ryuichi Sakamoto, jazz trumpeter Kenny Wheeler and fellow Japan bandmate, Steve Jensen all contributed. 180g vinyl reissue on Virgin/EMI

David Sylvian
Brilliant Trees

Brilliant Trees was the debut album from David Sylvian following the dissolution of his band Japan. The album moved away from the post new romanticisms of their swansong Tin Drum and towards the more acoustic reflective material he would perfect on Secrets of the Beehive. Now re-issued on 180g vinyl.

Also just look at his hair.

U2
No Line On The Horizon

This is the one by redundant stadium rockers U2 about the fictional characters of a drug addict, a soldier and a traffic police officer. Eno, Lanois and Lillywhite did the rather good production. It also got Taylor Deupree all in a flap because it has the same cover as an album he did with Richard Chartier. Bono, didn’t you know that photos expire after one use?

Sleaford Mods

The fifth studio album from never-knowingly-short-of-a-pun duo Sleaford Mods is on their own new 'Extreme Eating' label following a relatively brief sojourn with Rough Trade. Eton Alive is an aptly-titled affair in a year when which the actions of certain Old Etonians are in real danger of tearing the United Kingdom apart. Be assured that Sleaford Mods will have plenty to say on the subject of Brexit, austerity, and pretty much everything else related to the "shit pipe of this tatty civilisation" - all splurted out in their usual inimitable rattle-and-rant style.

So there.

Chris Potter
Circuits

Now, those who don’t know what’s up might assume that an album named Circuits, with cover art like that, was gonna be a suite of modular synth wogglings or Mego electro-fizz… But they would be wrong! Chris Potter is a noted saxophonist, and this album features him and his band jazing out big-time! Nice. On Edition Records.

Sun Ra
Monorails & Satellites - Works For Solo Piano Vol 1, 2, 3

There is always more to be found in the deep cosmos of the Sun Ra catalogue. Monorails & Satellite are solo piano albums recorded in 1966, which capture our intergalactic hero showing his unique yet virtuoso approach to the keys. Volume 3 of this triple set was never originally released, and the other two aren’t exactly easy to come by. Reissue sets on Cosmic Myth.

Le Superhomard
Meadow Lane Park

Debut full-length one from Le Superhomard, who are French (they aren’t putting it on like some you see these days). It’s electro-pop baby, and it's lovely, with a sunny flavour to the synth tones and a psychedelic motorik joy to the propulsive beats. It seems that everyone is having a good time with Meadow Lane Park, and you can too.

Cellar Doors
Cellar Doors

Cellar Doors are a band from San Francisco, but they have connections closer to home as they are managed by Stephen Holt of Inspiral Carpets. Their music is rooted in psychedelia with elements of indie rock and post-punk. All-in-all, a melodic, powerful and danceable proposition, I reckon. Their eponymous debut is released on LP and CD via Hear Here.

This Is Frafra Power: New Music From Bongo, Bolgatanga, Ghana — Upper East Region

This Is Frafra is a collection of music sourced and recorded by Francis Ayamga (that’s King Ayisoba’s drummer) in his studio in northern Ghana. It is therefore a snapshot of a group of artists that few outside the region will have heard before, so what a fine resource this is. Vivid and exciting and intimate music. Released on Makkum with the assistance of The Ex’s Arnold de Boer.

Sole
Destituent

Another round of rhyme-spittin’ polemics from Anticon co-founder Sole. Focused on the lyrical theme of anarchism, this one for Fake Four Inc is a bit unusual as it draws in a gritty, self-produced No Wave environment for the MC’s disgruntled lines. Recorded half in central Denver, half in the Maine hinterlands.

The Guitar and Other Machines

Massively expanded edition of the sixth album by Factory Records veteran Vini Reilly.

The Stephen Street-produced result was a genuine enrichment of the signature Durutti style that’s full of subtlety and still sounds fresh today. Includes a disc’s worth of related studio recordings and another of contemporary live material.

The Saxophones
Singing Desperately Suite

When their recent album, Songs Of The Saxophones was in the can, The Saxophones, Alex Erenkov and Alison Alderdice, kept hold of the musicians that helped them to record some more songs. Singing Desperately Suite is the result. It recalls the work of Antonio Carlos Jobim and the recent output of Low. 4-track 7” EP on Full Time Hobby.

bvdub
Explosions In Slow Motion

Bvdub’s drones and ambient work always remind us of large floating cloud ships, constantly billowing and developing. Sometimes it works well, sometimes it’s a bit too much for our tastes, and it’s hard to say on which side Explosions in Slow Motion will turn out to be. Expect large pads, huge soundscapes, and melancholy piano loops.

Cochemea
All My Relations

Cochemea Gastelum is likely best known for being a sax player with Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings. All My Relations, on Daptone of course, is a profoundly personal reflection on his life. Jazz meets the music of his Yaqui and Mescalero Apache Indian heritage for an album written collectively and through improvisation.

Claudia Anderson
Synthesis

The latest drop on Tresor Records (Donato Dozzy, Moritz von Oswald) comes courtesy of a resident DJ from the label’s parent-venue. Claudia Anderson is well-known to Berlin partygoers for her ability to spin high-calibre techno for hours at a time, and in the form of Synthesis she’s now got five more mid-set weapons at her disposal. Well, actually make that four more - as gorgeous as it is, the beat-free title track is more of a palette cleanser than a club banger.

Jeff Mills
The Director's Cut Chapter 1

Though the director's cut is a concept more associate with film, it's definitely welcome in music. Jeff Mills is someone who has the same auteur energy that we tend to associate with directors, so it makes sense that he's doing this. The Director's Cut Chapter 1 sees Mills revisiting four of his tracks, the first of which was previously unreleased. On Axis.

Obituary
Cause of Death

Obituary are a death metal band, hence the death-themed name. Cause of Death (see?) is the second album of this Florida crew, originally released in 1990 when it made quite an impact on the death metal community. Heavy and relentless and obsessively dark, this reissue features a few extra demo versions as well. On Listenable Records.

Drenge
Strange Creatures

The Deputy Leader Of The Labour Party’s favourite band return with their third LP and first full-length since 2015’s Undertow. Strange Creatures is a ten-track affair that sees Drenge’s muscular brand of hardcore indie-rock refigured for the night-time. Not in a they’ve-gone-disco sense - in the eerie, uncanny, nocturnal sense.

Saele
The Serpents Eggs

JSMЁ Records swiftly follow up on their release of a HTRK live LP with the debut full length from label head Saele Valese. The artists bleak, claustrophobic black drones feel as though they're infecting or possessing the listener. This is potent stuff - at times almost suffocating in its eerie intensity. Sounds like the sort of dark ritual music Aleister Crowley might have on his iPod. Killer sleeve too.

Code Walk
Distance

Oldskool templates meet modern production twists and tricks on this ace mini-LP of designer techno/post-rave music from Copenhagen dwelling producers Code Walk - released on Peder Mannerfelt's label. Traversing styles and influences across six cuts of mutant breakbeat hardcore and abstracted, spangled techno and beyond. This is only the duo's second release but marks them as ones to watch with plenty of tackle here to soundtrack some good old fashioned dancefloor debauchery and depravity.

The psychedelics-fuelled California duo of Sean Lennon and Primus bassist Les Claypool is back after 2016’s Monolith of Phobos with newun South of Reality. Check out that magnificent 1970s sci-fi novel-esque cover art. Self-recorded and self-produced, the songs are sumptuous, lyrical and proggy compositions that go beyond the usual psych reliance on big stoner haze.

Better Oblivion Community Center might be a brand new name but the betting is that you'll know the people involved. Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst are both well known solo artists in their own right but here they work together on an album conceived and recorded in the hot L.A summer of 2018. Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) is on it, John Congleton co-produces.

Gloaming is a single in advance of a debut album, and it sets the stage beautifully, with an incongruous but effective mix of harmonised vocals and bitcrushed guitar noise. 7” single.

James Yorkston
The Route To The Harmonium

I love to think about James Yorkston's daily life  - tinkering around in his attic with his vintage instruments at his disposal, the distant sound of the sea just with in earshot. He recorded the whole of this new album in said space but later got in...guess who?...David Wrench to have a listen and make some suggestions. The result is a deeply personal treasure trove of songs exemplifying Yorkston at the peak of his craft.

Feels make equal amounts of noise and melody. Post Earth is the L.A. four piece’s follow-up to their self-titled debut, released through Castle Face, which was produced by none other than Ty Segall. Here, they switch labels to Wichita and soak up influences from The Breeders to Warpaint to Queens Of The Stone age.

First time meeting for the trio of saxophonist Dave Liebman with superb percussionists Adam Rudolph and Hamid Drake. The album is titled Chi, and the freely improvised pieces here take that concept as their root, leading to a powerful and spiritual statement. Plus, you get to hear Hamid use his frame drum, which is always wonderful. On RareNoise.

The Hold Steady
Stay Positive

Was it only ten years ago we were following Craig Finn and pals down to Minneapolis/St Paul and their breakout record 'Stay Positive'. Finn is basically a gossip over lots of catchy chunky Springsteen-ish rock with tittle tattle about what people are up to on the party scene. It was the soundtrack to my divorce which I'm still not properly over so I might as well give this another listen.

Simple guitar, bass, drums set up explored by some of the finest players in the biz.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Who Killed Sgt Pepper?

At last! A re-issue of The Brian Jonestown Massacre LP which prompted the spat between our very own Phil Leigh and Brian Jonestown Massacre leader Anton Newcombe which culminated in the latter very accurately labelling the former a 'grumpy little tit'. Re-live that moment whilst listening to the album Phil described rather inaccurately "a bit like every period of Primal Scream on one album".
