Steve Mason
About The Light

The Beta Band are a distant image in the rear view mirror of Steve Mason these days. Following their break up he continued under the King Biscuit Time moniker before releasing Boys Outside (2010) under his own name. About The Light is his fourth solo album. Previously all of his solo albums have...view item »

Calexico
The Black Light (20th Anniversary Edition)

The Black Light by Calexico was originally released 20 years ago so it seems fitting that we now have a 20th anniversary version to savour. It was the band’s second album, but probably the first to get them noticed. Their mix of mariachi brass, flamenco, indie rock and jazz wrapped up in dusty Americana was seamlessly blen...view item »

Willie J Healey
666 Kill

Willie J Healey took a novel approach to writing the songs for his first record of new material since 2017 debut LP People And Their Dogs. As soon as an idea would appear in his head Healey sought to flesh it out without over-elaborating the writing process. The results are these six tracks of plaintive freak-folk that ...view item »

Prequel Tapes
Everything Is Quite Now

Vaulting, cinematic compositions for Gaffa Tape Records by Berlin-based Prequel Tapes, also known as Prequel Tapes. Whoever it is, their music mixes industrial techno, EBM and ambient into sprawling, melodramatic vista-floors, the likes of which ye might very much enjoy if ye think bvdub should ...view item »

Karla Borecky
The Still Life

Just like her music takes time to unfold, Karla Borecky likes to spend her time making it. The Still Life is only her second album in seven years and is the follow up to 2011’s Still In Your Pocket. She has, of course, made three albums with experimental duo Idea Fire Company in the intervening years. The ...view item »

Merzbow / Genesis Breyer P-Orridge
A Perfect Pain

Here’s a twentieth anniversary reissue of this collaboration between two heavyweights of subversive and challenging music, Gristle Throbber Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Japanese curator of cacophony Merzbow. Genesis lend obscure and absorbing spoken-word, around which Merz builds engrossing and intense tex...view item »

Kevin Ayers - John Cale - Eno - Nico
June 1, 1974

Some A&R guy at Island Records suggested that Kevin Ayers, John Cale, Eno and Nico, a real bunch of musical mavericks, get together for a gig in an attempt to promote Island as a rock label. All four artists had recently signed with the label and had released, or were about ...view item »

Public Service Broadcasting
White Star Liner

40,000 copies sold of their last album.... selling out the Albert Hall? Well our favourite 'putting-bits-of-old-commentary-over-second-rate-post-rock' lot are back with a 4 track EP which you could have got for free by taping off 6 Music when it was broadcast. This time they have turned their attention to that time the Titanic went down. Whateve...view item »

Christopher Young
Hellbound: Hellraiser II

Just in time for Halloween and the 30th anniversary of the release of Hellbound: Hellraiser II comes the original soundtrack. It was scored by Christopher Young, who also provided the creepy backdrop for the first film. This limited edition is pressed on bloodshed red with black smoke coloured vinyl and contains tracks that were...view item »

Objekt
Cocoon Crush

To the great concern of caterpillars everywhere, brainy Berlin DJ and producer Objekt is back at the Deconstruct-A-Club Workshop with another LP for brainy Berlin label PAN. Cocoon Crush is as immaculate as its predecessor Flatland, but contrasts in being much more focused on manipulating recordings (of all sor...view item »

Here’s the latest album from composer, arranger and cellist-to-the-stars Julia Kent, her first on the Leaf Label after two previous albums on Important. It’s a sombre neoclassical affair with lots of mournful strings, graceful...view item »

Terry
I'm Terry

Hello Terry. Rather than a person (like Venables) Terry is in fact a band from Australia none of which (to my knowledge) are called Terry. According to the press release Terry romance the mundane but at the same time share ideals with Steely Dan and 10CC neither of which are mundane. They are me...view item »

Szun Waves
New Hymn To Freedom

Szun Waves are a small collective of musicians who improvise, but whilst improvisation can sometimes be viewed as self-indulgent and not particularly audience friendly, on New Hymn To Freedom, the trio make the listening experience an immersive one. The band features Luke Abbott, who is known for mixing leftfield club music with...view item »

Stephen Steinbrink
Utopia Teased

And I thought Stephen Steinbrink was such a nice clean living young man. Well understandably perhaps, after the Ghost Ship fire in Oakland he went a bit off the rails... eating LSD daily, refusing to sleep and locking himself in his studio. The results are contained within Utopia Teased, an album which eschews the clear...view item »

Thou
Inconsolable

My friends, my dear friends, listen up: it is the year of Thou. In addition to releasing their new grungy doom opus Magus, they've been releasing a series of EPs that give them a chance to try out other things. Inconsolable is perhaps the most significant outlier in their ...view item »

Kinski
Accustomed to Your Face

Kinski are a band from Seattle who formed when three members bonded over analog recording in a boozer. The majority of their releases over the years have been on Sub Pop or Kill Rock Stars, so that should offer some clues to their sound - the heavy end of indie rock with a bit of punk thrown in, comfortably mid-fi. Their new alb...view item »

Dubstar
One

Dubstar are still going. I assumed that they were one of those ‘90s bands who had a big hit, int their case, Stars, and split. It turns out that they merely faded from view. They’re back as a streamlined two-piece with One, their first new album in 18 years. It was produced by Flood and apparently contains more guita...view item »

KOLARS
KOLARS

Kolars are ostensibly a band that blend already mixed genres - desert disco? Glam-a-billy? Anyhoo, the LA duo are essentially an indie rock act with a USP of a drummer who tap dances on a bass drum whilst playing the rest of the kit in the traditional way. They’ve supported a real mixed bag of artists on their travels from Pussyriot to Ala...view item »

Laura Veirs
Saltbreakers

Saltbreakers was Laura Veirs 6th album, originally released in 2007. It showcased a fuller sound than her previous work with full band arrangements and a fuller production but is still mesmerisingly beautiful. Veirs music always sounds like it was written next the sea on a cold winters day. How does she do it? I don't k...view item »

Laura Veirs
Year of Meteors

Once upon a time bands would make couple of great records out on an indie label, sign to major and promptly be ruined. It seems to happen less these days but  Laura Veirs has recently signed to a major label - how will she fare with the major label sandpaper treatment?Laura Veirs is more successful I think - her last ...view item »

James Ginzburg
Six Correlations

James Ginzburg might be better known to you as 50% of Emptyset, that most crushing of electronic music projects. This solo record, which was put together for a Berlin commission earlier this year, engages with a wider palette than that group,...view item »

IDER
Learn To Let Go / Body Love

Guess it's been a while since you needed physical records to become the next big thing. Two-girls-from-North-London duo IDER have been causing digital ripples on the interblogs since they released Sorry way back in 2016. Now they've decided to join the cult of actual vinyl with their first ever physi...view item »

Tokyo Police Club
TPC

The end was nearly in sight for Tokyo Police Club, due to distance between members among other things. But then the main songwriter decided that these difficulties would not defeat him, and so he insisted on beginning the process that would become ...view item »

Admiral
Cash On The Line

The press release for Cash On The Line, the debut album by Admiral, skirts around the idea in rather waffle-based way that the music contained within is from another world or time. Electric pianos, drones, jazz, funk and tropicalia are mentioned. What we do know for sure is that it’s an LP on Wandering Eye, the label run b...view item »

Jean Cohen-Solal
Flutes Libres

Jean Cohen-Solal is a flutist (flautist?) first and foremost, and you’ll hear plenty of that instrument on this record. But Flutes Libres isn’t only a virtuoso demonstration, it also features some ra...view item »

Max Graef
Lo Siento Mucho Pero No Hablo Tu Idioma

Berliner, Max Graef, returns four years after his highly-rated debut Rivers Of The Red Planet with Lo Siento Mucho Pero No Hablo Tu Idioma - or I’m Very Sorry But I Don’t Speak Your Language, as my basic Spanish leads me to understand. Graef says of the record that it he approached it in an unmusical way - more experimental than its ...view item »

Django Django
Winter's Beach

At the start of 2018, London art-rockers Django Django released their third album, Marble Skies. By that time however, they were so consumed by inspiration that they were already in the studio working on some spiffy new tunes. The result of those sessions was Winter’s Beach, a six track EP. 12” and CD on Because Musi...view item »

Dick Dickson
In The Pocket

Dick Dickinson is a Cameroon-born singer. He recorded In The Pocket in Togo in 1986. He used African groove as a starting point, with a view to creating a mid-eighties American funk sound, which was de rigueur at the time. This reissue 12” is the second release for the new Beaumonde label who felt this track deserved to be...view item »

Bloc Party
Silent Alarm

Oh I know. You're waiting on the Bloc Party album aren't you? Yes you bunch of dribbling fanatics, It's here. With a free 4 track live DVD. It's great as well. Edgy, dynamic headrush anthems. Taking indie into a new sky scraping stratosphere. Tight as hell playing from this uber talented 4 piece. Awesome drumming etc etc. It's everywhere...view item »

DJ Shadow
The Private Press

DJ Shadow. A god to some perhaps. Always been a personal hero of mine and when I saw him live the other week he rocked my world in a slight hip hop bouncy fashion . Now his new album didn't impress me when I first heard it months ago. But after months and months of perseverance as I couldn't believe th...view item »

Tricky
Maxinquaye

Tricky’s Maxinquaye has retained its power and significance long after the term / scene that it first appeared in, trip-hop, has faded from favour. Working closely with vocalist Martina Topley-Bird, Tricky lurks his way around some real classics. 180 gram vinyl reissue for the 20t...view item »

Massive Attack
Mezzanine [2018 Remaster]

Very exciting 20th anniversary remaster of Massive Attack's 1998 album Mezzanine, the kind of album that constantly finds itself on lists of the best albums of all time without losing any of its cool. Massive Attack took the trip-hop sound they had helped define and mixed it with a more rock-y energy t...view item »

White Lies
Five

Five is the er….fifth album by London three-piece White Lies. The facts Normanites might like to know is that it was produced by Ed Buller (Suede, Boo Radleys, Pulp etc) and mixed by Alan Moulder (JAMC, Ride, NIN etc) and Killing Joke bassist and renowned producer, Flood, plays synth on it a bit too. LP and CD on PIAS....view item »

Jaakko Eino Kalevi
Out Of Touch

Fed up with today’s boring dystopia of perpetual connectivity and online networking? So is Helsinki tram driver-turned-cheerful-songwriter Jaakko Eino Kalevi. On new album Out of Touch, where vintage-sounding Finnish synthpop meets more modern influences, he embraces the joys of simply logging off for a while - am...view item »

Donny McCaslin
Blow.

First album from veteran saxophonist Donny McCaslin since he helped define the sound of David Bowie's final album, Blackstar. On Blow McCaslin enjoys the liberation he learned from Bowie, drawing on everything from 90s hip-hop to contemporary electronic ...view item »

Butcher Brown

A "direct to disc" album from American jazz and funk quintet Butcher Brown.

Miles Davis & John Coltrane
Trane's Blues

Reissue of a couple great early Miles Davis and John Coltrane cuts. Recorded originally in 1956, Trane’s Blues, confusingly different from the homonymous 1999 Blue Note release, showcases some of the earliest recordings by the First Great Quintet. Listen to Coltrane's high-intensity sax and D...view item »

The Posies
Frosting On The Beater

Frosting On The Beater is arguably the best album by Seattle power pop stalwarts The Posies. It’s full of blissful guitars, joyful melodies and perfect harmonies. It was the band’s third album and was originally released in 1993. The album has an edgier, rockier sound than its two predecessors due to Don Fleming...view item »

Linval Thompson
Look How Me Sexy

Reissue of Linval Thompson's 1982 album Look How Me Sexy. Thompson is notable for being one of the earliest reggae singers of his generations to produce his own tracks, and mentored the incredibly influential Henry ‘Junjo’ Lawes. The album's title track was produced by Lawes, using a...view item »

The Rutles
The Rutles

The Rutles started life as a Beatles pastiche band. They were formed by Neil Innes of the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band and Eric Idle of Monty Python fame. This self-titled LP was their first album, released in 1978, and was also the soundtrack to their film All You Ne...view item »

Love
Revisited

Love Revisited was a rather odd compilation of tracks from the first four Love albums. The Elektra years if you will. I guess it was originally intended as a starter point for those who hadn't already hooked on to the bands exquisite form of folk rock but given the success of Forever Changes it's rather odd to ...view item »

Atmosphere
Mi Vida Local

Mi Vida Local is the seventh album from long time "alt-rappers" Atmosphere. It's coming up on three decades now that the duo of Slug and Ant have been practicing their craft, but more importantly it's been two years since their last album. America's last two years have been troubled and in response the band...view item »

Moscow Youth Cult
Brutalist

Who knew videogame sound engineers could make catchy dark pop? We haven't heard the full album yet, of course. But the first preview of the duo’s new album Brutalist starts off with a classic Hearts of Black Science midnight-loner sound, and expands with the controlled sophistication that only sound designers could reach. Exc...view item »

Donovan
Sunshine Superman

Sunshine Superman by Donovan was originally released in 1967 - it should have been the year before but some red tape nonsense meant it was delayed. It was his third album and saw the man sometimes known as The Welsh Dylan, begin to move away from his folk roots. This is evidenced by the psych-tinged title track and the wonderful...view item »

Donovan
Mellow Yellow

“I’m-a just-a mad-a ‘bout-a Saffron / She’s just mad about me / They call me Mellow Yellow (quite rightly!)” mutters genre-blending, kindly and highly relaxed Scot Donovan Phillips Leitch on trademark song ‘Mellow Yellow’. And here it is again, as a beautifully faithful Abbey Road reprod...view item »

Esben And The Witch
Nowhere

Esben And The Witch return with a new LP on Season Of Mist. Nowhere is a very good metal album full of Gothic majesty. The passages of monolithic sludge are reminiscent of Sunn O))), but the way they often give way to moments of icy beauty is reminiscent of Converge and...view item »

Satan's Satyrs

Takehisa Kosugi

This is a really good week for new records. The one I have here is by the forgettably-named Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Thankfully the music isn't nearly as forgettable.

The Cult
Pure Cult

The Cult started life as a goth rock band that introduced elements of post punk to their sound. It was all delivered with a Mick Jagger swagger and Jim Morrison-esque mysticism. By their the time of their third album, Electric, they’d mostly left the goth and post punk influences behind in favour of all-out hard rock. Pure...view item »

The Fall
I Am Kurious Oranj

Like most Fall albums, this one contains filler, but the strong material is lethal. From the steamroller opening track "New Big Prinz" to the surprisingly pretty instrumental "Overture From 'I am Curious, Orange'" amusingly pockmarked by Brix' ejaculations, to the disturbing "Jerusalem" to the vintage Fall "Wrong Place, Right Time" to the Fall's...view item »

I hate the term Goth. It just lumps everyone who wears black into the same brooding category. By that definition Avril Levine is Goth. Bauhaus is much more than the sum of its parts.

The best thing about this album is not what it sounds like, but what it doesn't.
