Ela Orleans
Upper Hell

22 people love me. Be the 23rd...

10/10 according to our Brian on 3rd April 2015

Musician, artist, dreamer, nomad and proud insomniac Ela Orleans is no stranger to Norman Records. One of the absolute finest things about having worked in this madhouse of a shop for aeons is discovering the odd song, EP or real grown up long playing album out-of-the-blue; one that leaves you in awe at its clas…view full details.

Dendrology

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

7/10 according to our Robin on 28th April 2015

The Ologies is their name, and though it sounds like an academically-minded kids TV show whose key demo is overachievers, it’s actually a group of like-minded musical types from Winchester, aiming to procure compelling experimental performances in small middle England. Sounds a bit like some excited people we know who love to scream the wo…view full details.

GARCON

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

7/10 according to our Robin on 28th April 2015

Hirohito Ihara is attempting to mend art bridges on ‘Garcon’, taking a fanciful, high-concept tack with a collection of musics separately influenced by classical painting techniques. While it sounds frustratingly abstract as an idea, the practice is simple: each of these songs speaks to a different tone, as if representing a differen…view full details.

MG
MG

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Clinton on 23rd April 2015

Old synth guys never die - they just escape from their big stadium bands for a while and make interesting electronica. Martin Gore is famous for two things: Firstly he is a dead ringer for York City’s hardworking-but-devoid-of-end-product winger …view full details.

Sonic Jesus
Neither Virtue Nor Anger

8 people love me. Be the 9th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 22nd April 2015

Who’s up for some no hope psych rock? The latest entry into the New Testament of the Fuzz Club is Sonic Jesus, who recently inflicted some repetitive-strain kraut witchery on a split with the Black Angels. On ‘Neither Virtue Nor Anger’, they get a chance to stretch their devastated so…view full details.

White Hills
Walks For Motorists

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 22nd April 2015

Day Number 243, and I’m still walking this dustbowl road of post-apocalyptic isolation, lamenting psych rock and its cockroach knack for survival. I’ll take anything but, please; send me the Oasis reunion with Whitehouse, send me the War on Dr…view full details.

Drew Lustman
The Crystal Cowboy

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 22nd April 2015

With a cover consisting of a dusty apartment block and presumably Mr. Lustman sitting nonchalantly on top of a horse, you could easily assume that this is the electronic version of Father John Misty. New kooky alter ego, new sound and even some ‘doo-doo-doo’s, all signed to the Bella Union of b…view full details.

Death
N.E.W

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Robin on 24th April 2015

“They’re named after something I never want to happen to me” - Phil, forlorn. Protopunks Death never really got a chance to be the proto, considering that many of their early records toiled in release purgatory and came into proper fruition at a later date -- take the ‘70s classics ‘...For …view full details.

Delia Gonzalez
In Remembrance

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

7/10 according to our Robin on 23rd April 2015

Delia Gonzalez’s raw piano compositions are a far cry from your average neo-classical space-gazing. Nils Frahm ruminates on his keys -- he spends more time trying to see into their souls than he does press against them -- and Dustin O’Hallaran makes declarative statements with his cho…view full details.

Mark Tranmer
[ Further Woodland ]

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Clinton on 24th April 2015

Pianos here, pianos there pianos everywhere. People love to tinkle on them and release records of the sound of them so much so that one of the chief protagonists Nils Frahm recently declared it international piano day. Hey Stetson  - you know what to do with "sax day" thing. So this album from former…view full details.

Ghostly Swim 2

CD on Ghostly inc. Pascaa, Shigeto, Anenon, Heathered Pearls, Babe Rainbow, CFCF etc.. Compilation from the long-running Ghostly label, with assistance from TV channel Adult Swim. The focus here is on the blurrier, more ambient ends of the Ghostly scale: rhythms remain, but swim comfortably to the back of your mind. All new tracks from the likes of Shigeto, Galcher Lus…view full details.

Bill Fay
Who Is The Sender?

2 people love me. Be the 3rd...

8/10 according to our Robin on 14th April 2015

Beautiful Bill is back, and I’m utterly relieved. ‘Life Is People’ was a triumphant comeback record that made the many years without Fay’s music worth suffering through, and celebrated a songwriter who’d been subjected to the musician’s worst nightmare: not being listened to. ‘Life Is People’ may h…view full details.

Jeff Mills & Mikhail Rudy
When Time Splits

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

Limited CD on Axis. ‘When Time Splits’ was created when highly acclaimed classical pianist Mikhaïl Rudy and electronic music pioneer Jeff Mills collaborated on a project to create the soundtrack to ‘L’Enfer’, a film that was never completed by Henri-Georges Clouzot. Recorded for the Duos Ephémères concert at Auditorium du Louvre in Paris, the record captures sixty minutes of the intense, spontan…view full details.

CD on United Jnana. Available on CD from United Jnana. Remastered from the original tapes these are the original soundtrack concepts for Chris Wallis’ film Lumb’s Sister from 1989, Steven Stapleton’s main musical output Nurse With Wound.

Limited digifile CD on The Long Story Recording Company. Edition of 100 copies.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Asunder, Sweet And Other Distress

22 people love me. Be the 23rd...

9/10 according to our Robin on 25th March 2015

Godspeed have always spoken through others. Our favourite anonymous band, their rise has been charted through phonies opening our eyes, nostalgics waxing lyrical, helicopter crews circling in; the nameless of North America, trying to stake their claim on it. The idea of them as a political band is just that: an idea. It is us who talked and list…view full details.

Waxahatchee
Ivy Tripp

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Hayley on 14th April 2015

Alabama-raised singer-songwriter Katie Crutchfield has come a long way since her debut 2012 LP ‘American Weekend’ and the subsequent ‘Cerulean Salt’: those two records defined Waxahatchee’s predilection for delicate melodies with a rugged grunge sensibility, and the lo-fi bedroom production style made her knack for …view full details.

Squarepusher
Damogen Furies

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

6/10 according to our Laurie on 16th April 2015

Britain’s most adept purveyor of pure intensity is still at it. Still battering your ears with hyperglitch drum-n-ba- sorry, I mean DRILL-n-bass, whatever that is. Age hasn’t exactly matured the man, but rather amplified his ability to control a multitude of independently freaking out layers. Damogen Furies finds Tom…view full details.

Feverdreamt
Terban Te Ban

8 people love me. Be the 9th...

7/10 according to our Robin on 16th April 2015

How curious. What we find in Feverdreamt’s many layers is a singer-songwriter record, buried under a haze of nightmarish krautrock. Our protagonist starts off with a lo-fi tune of twinkling piano and distant vocals, like if Have a Nice Life were tasked with the drunkenly cooed don’t-leave-me-ism…view full details.

Zombi
The Zombi Anthology

CD on Relapse. Zombi, a duo from Pittsburgh, were hugely influenced by the band Goblin who wrote the score for the original Dawn Of The Dead film. It was also where they got their name, the Italian release of the film being called Zombi. The Zombi Anthology features the multi layered looping of synth, bass and drums making sounds that sit somewhere between space rock and classic horror scores…view full details.

Sonic Youth
Bad Moon Rising

4 people love me. Be the 5th...

Review this item for us? Best review each week wins a £10 voucher!

Reissue CD on Goofin' inc. 4 bonus tracks. Bad Moon Rising was only the second record for these presidents of noise rock, and saw a reverence for classic rock and all its idealism hit a brick wall of distortion an disdain. Sonic Youth made feedback the new pop music, and this record helped them on their way to that very reasoned idea: this is a piece of accessible dissonance.…view full details.

Andrew Liles
First Monster, Last Monster, Always Monster

CD on Dirter. 'First Monster Last Monster Always Monster' is a labour of love project from sound artist and multi instrumentalist Andrew Liles. Claiming a deeply personal, emotional connection to the 1985 Sisters Of Mercy classic album ‘First And Last And Always’ as his motivation, Liles has reimagined this timeless masterpiece in the form of an instrumental electronic homage.…view full details.

Eels
Royal Albert Hall

1 person loves me. Be the 2nd...

6/10 according to our Robin on 15th April 2015

We hired Mark Everett to work for us once, but he added horns to everything. You’d open a record and there’d be a trumpet; we’d be listening to the new Prurient album and he’d say something like “needs more oboe” (maybe that’s true, actually). There was always a grand piano in our dishwasher, "just in ca…view full details.

The Leisure Society
The Fine Art Of Hanging On

6 people love me. Be the 7th...

7/10 according to our Clinton on 9th April 2015

The Leisure Society’s debut ‘The Sleeper’ was a fantastic album of folky lullabies that made me get a speck in my eye on several occasions.  Since then they’ve rather strayed too far into the Mumfords folk festival territory for me at times but still remain a worthy entity. The …view full details.

Fifto

CD on Home Normal. Fifto is one of those artists who apparently have zero interest in self-promotion, or even in  existing outside of their immediate locality. A minimal electronicisist from the Japanese town of Sapporo, Fifto has finally been persuaded to release his glitching melodic delvings into the world, thanks to Home Normal. Exciting!…view full details.

Richard Neale
Deep Blue (part 1)

3 people love me. Be the 4th...

8/10 according to our Laurie on 10th April 2015

Namedropping AFX, BoC, Sigur Ros and GY!BE is certainly a brave move. My cynical side says ‘crowdpleasing’, but ultimately intrigue wins over, especially since that Richard Neale seems to have come into electronica from a folk background, a fundamentally massive transition. It’s always interesting to hear what is retained. …view full details.

Follakzoid
III

10 people love me. Be the 11th...

8/10 according to our Robin on 26th March 2015

The number III printed on the front of their new record like three identical towers, Föllakzoid betray their love of symmetry, their ability to take spaced out, kraut-leaning rock music and park it perfectly. They’ve already proved themselves to be aficionados of the slow, repetitive build, using little more than ominous guitar tones,…view full details.
