Honey Hahs
Dear Someone, Happy Something

Every so often we get one of these, a band of barely-even-teenagers who somehow manage to make music that puts people twice their age to shame. Honey Hahs (average age 13) are a trio of sisters from London who pen charming twee-punk ditties in the vein of Girlpool and Frankie Cosmos. Their debut...view item »

Marquis Hawkes
The Marquis of Hawkes

Like many of today’s electronic artists, Marquis Hawkes bases himself in Berlin.

David Sylvian & Holger Czukay
Plight & Premonition Flux & Mutability

The man once dubbed the Most Beautiful Man In The World...and ...er.. David Sylvian collaborated way back in the mid '80s on these two LPs in Can's home place of Koln in bleak midwinter.

Genesis
Trespass

Genesis
The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway

The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway was the sixth album by Genesis and was originally released in November 1974. It was a concept album telling the story of a boy who lived on the streets.

Genesis
Selling England By The Pound

Selling England By The Pound is the album that gave Genesis their first taste of real commercial success. The band's fifth long-player was originally released in 1973.

Genesis
Foxtrot

The fourth album in the Genesis cannon was 1972’s Foxtrot. According to critics at the time, this is the one where their blend of prog, creativity and musical nous were combined perfectly. Foxtrot was notable for its ambitious closing track, Supper’s Ready, a complex construction which clocked in at 27 minutes. Reiss...view item »

Genesis
Duke

Duke by Genesis was originally released in 1980. It was their second album as the classic three-piece of Collins, Rutherford and Banks that men in ironed jeans and brogues would love throughout the ‘80s.

Genesis
A Trick Of The Tail

1976: Goodbye Peter Gabriel, step forward Mr. Phil Collins! A Trick Of The Tail was the album where Phil Collins left his drum stool and stepped up to the mic, or just got a mic shoved in front of his mouth while he sat at the drums. He replaced Peter Gabriel on vocals anyway as...view item »

Karim Maas
Old World Disorder EP

Extremely moody electronic music from the UVB-76 Music crew. Karim Maas blends noisy techno, break beats, and just the right amount of bass to elicit a sense of dread worth of that album artwork. The Old World Disorder EP features four tracks by Maas as well as a remix f...view item »

Primitive Man / Unearthly Trance
Split

If there's one thing I know about metal bands it's that they love a collaboration. Okay, that probably wouldn't be the first thing I'd say I know about them but it's up there. United States doom heavyweights Primitive Man and Unearthly Trance make good on this tradition in the f...view item »

Ital Tek
Bodied

Ital Tek’s sixth LP for Planet Mu might be the Brighton producer’s most full-realised work to date. There is barely a whisper of the frenetic dubstep and footwork rhythms that formed the bedrock of his early releases. While the sense of dystopian unease that has always been part of the Ital Tek sound...view item »

Paul Weller
True Meanings

Paul Weller wants the truth, dammit! No faking here. A sign hangs above the door to the former Jam bloke’s fourteenth solo full-length - ‘True Meanings Only’. Weller’s quest for the real has, according to the press release for this album, pushed him to make an LP ‘unlike an...view item »

Mac-Talla Nan Creag
The Sorrow Of Derdriu

We were a massive fan of Firecracker's first Mac-Talla Nan Craeg release, a record that curve-balled our expectations on the label to release good house bangers via an archaeological dig of Scotland's ancient landscape. One can only assume that participating artists Hoch Ma Toch, Other Lands and Lord Of The Isles have ...view item »

Me and My Kites
Is it Real or is it Made?

Second album from Me and My Kites, a flighty collection of songs that breeze past the listener so laden with summer that you could catch hayfever. Is It Real Or Is It Made? was recorded in Norway, and there is, from time to time, an audibly Scandinavian touch to the vocals. LP released by Porcelain Records....view item »

Me and My Kites
Like A Dream Back Then

Hippies. Your enjoyment of this record will depend quite a lot on your tolerance for hippies. Looking at the sleeve I thought it was some kind of ‘60s reissue but no, this quartet of skinny-dipping, flower-wreathing Swedes actually recorded this album just last year. The back cover even has an old-style photo collage of them. “It&rsq...view item »

Yuri Gagarin
At The Centre of All Infinity

Yuri Gagarin dive headfirst into the deep pool of psychedelic space-rock, blasting upwards and outwards in the direction of the kind of über-landscapes seen depicted on the album cover.

Reverend Bizarre
In The Rectory Of The Bizarre Reverend

Legendary doom crushers Reverend Bizzare would always put in a double shift on their records, matching their massive, spiteful sound with a whole bunch of unholy humour. This record starts with a polite request to "Burn In Hell" and ends with a Lord of the Rings reference, a tongue-in-cheek acknowledgement that what th...view item »

Innumerable Forms
Punishment Made Flesh

The cantankerous Innumerable Forms have finally made an LP. Punishment In Flesh comes a good eleven years after the band's inception, which makes sense: they release LPs at a speed worthy of a band with powerviolence/hardcore origins. Taking influence from the Scandanavian death metal of the early '9...view item »

Luna Demos by Dean Wareham doesn’t require much explaining. Here we have 7 demo versions of tracks from his band, Luna’s well regarded 1992 album Lunapark.

John Grant
Love Is Magic

John Grant feels that album-by-album his music is becoming a truer reflection of who he is. Judging by the cover of his 4th solo album, Love Is Magic, he’s really coming out of his shell.

Parquet Courts
Wide Awake Remixes

Parquet Courts album Wide Awake has been a big favourite of Norman staff and customers this year so Wide Awake Remixes should be of interest in our little world.

Mudhoney
Digital Garbage

Apparently, Mark Arm wanted to write an album with lyrics akin to early Beach Boys records - a more holiday-ish vibe.

GNOD
Chapel Perilous

Working out in Eindhoven, shapeshifting Salford racket warriors Gnod had time and space to construct two pulverising tracks that they had already been playing on the road, plus sculpted further material more abstract in nature.

Pere Ubu
Raygun Suitcase

After three albums that flirted with pop for major label, Fontana, Pere Ubu returned to the comfort of an indie label and the darker, more avant-garde sound of their origins for 1995’s Raygun Suitcase.

Youth Killed It
What's so Great, Britain?

It’s easy to be cynical about bands like Youth Killed It. Yes their lyrics are a bit naff, and yes their Jack Penate/The Metros/The Holloways/Jamie T-Under-18s-Sunday-matinee-at-ULU vibe is somewhat behind the curve in 2018. But you know what? At least the...view item »
