Peter Howell and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop
Doctor Who: The Five Doctors

What an exciting thing, particularly for fans of everything 'Doctor Who': the soundtrack to 90-minute 1983 BBC TV special The Five Doctors, marking 20 years of The Doctor. Peter Davison was joined by Patrick Troughton, Jon Pertwee, Tom Baker and Richard Hurndall. The eerie and highly evocative music was composed by ...view item »

Don Harper
Doctor Who: The Invasion

1968’s The Invasion is one of the many parts of Doctor Who franchise that gets fans all hot and bothered. An eight-part serial directed by Douglas Camfield, some of the show’s original tapes were lost pretty soon after it aired. How, then, do we now have a soundtrack release for it? Well - fortunate...view item »

Parekh & Singh
Science City

Parekh & Singh present their second LP, and boy is it lush. Science City perhaps lands somewhere between the gorgeous dream-pop of Beach House and the textured arrangements of Grizzly Bear: in any case, its eleven tracks make up a beautiful and rich listen. Science City &nb...view item »

Micah P. Hinson
When I Shoot At You With Arrows, I Will Shoot To Destroy You

Strong words from Texas native Micah P. Hinson, although his album seems to be on target if you're big into distorted singer-songwriter stuff with a retro early 2000s feel. When I Shoot at You With Arrows, I Will Shoot to Destroy You is the 4th album by the man who considers Obama to be 'the Murderer of the American Dre...view item »

Maarja Nuut & Ruum
Muunduja

Estonian violinist and vocalist Maarja Nut joins producer Ruum. Her airy voice and subtle violin create quiet lakes of sound, while Ruum’s electronic soundscapes seem to paint the depths that lie below. Muunduja is a haunting and reflective effort, out on FatCat, one of the finest wo...view item »

Das Body
Das Body

Luminelle Recordings did good earlier this year when they released an excellent bedroom pop record from Helena Deland. This, the eponymous debut EP from Das Body (great name), is also pretty decent. The four tracks here are politely funky synth-pop with a bit of a Christine & The Que...view item »

Charlene Soraia
Where's My Tribe

Music just like they (apparently) used to make it. Charlene Soraia recorded Where’s My Tribe at home in her flat, using just voice and guitar and generally using just the first take. Consequently these are songs with a great feeling of intimacy and directness, although they also sound impressively accomplished for...view item »

Bloody Knees
You Can Have It

A band called Bloody Knees: that’s got to be a punk band of some kind right? Yeah pretty much, though a bit less wiry and a bit more indie than I would have guessed. You Can Have It is their newest release, featuring four new tracks and a nice picture of the lads in a swimming pool with their tour backdrop on the ...view item »

Neil Landstrumm
Threesome

Valuable reissue of Neil Landstrumm's killer DBX/Chicago/UK Bleep inspired, jacking EPs for Peacefrog. This triple 12" set includes; 'Index Man EP', 'M Cap EP' and 'Inhabit The Machines' which is worth grabbing for dancefloor slayer 'Blam The Target' alone. Landstrumm was on fire during this early period in which he also re...view item »

Planetary Assault Systems
The Electric Funk Machine

Planetary Assault Systems’ The Electric Funk Machine turned twenty in 2017. Considering that so many of the current crop of rave revivalists - Lone, FaltyDL and that - are jacking Luke Slater’s late-’90s steez, the time feels right for one of his fines...view item »

Lee 'Scratch' Perry
The Black Album

Some things never get old. Like Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry's infectious dub and reggae. Despite the man counting 82 years he's still thumping out dub and reggae bangers.

Two Medicine
Astropsychosis

Peaceful psychedelic rock is a genre underrepresented in between all the endless distorted guitar solos we get to listen to here at Norman HQ. Two Medicine, created by Paul Alexander from indie/psych rockers Midlake, are taking a much more poppy approach to psychedelia. Named after a part of Glacier National Par...view item »

Jeff Majors
For Us All (Yoka Boka)

Original copies of Jeff Majors’ 1986 LP For Us All (Yoka Boka) go for mad money these days. If your coin is of the saner variety, then maybe try this Invisible City Editions re-press out for size. Majors was a student of Alice Coltrane, and there’s a shared strain of devotio...view item »

John Daly
Selections From "We Will Live Again"

John Daly created the music heard here while going through a serious personal tragedy, and that feeling of loss inevitably imbues the material with a certain weight, even while the house beats remain groovy. Thoughtful dancefloor cuts, with drums from Dan Walsh and vocals from Barbara Vulso. ...view item »

David Kitt
Like Lightning

David Kitt made a sharp left-turn back in 2017. His LP Yous put aside the deep house style of his New Jackson project for a record of tender, Arthur Russell-esque folk-pop of the sort that he was last found doing way back in the 2000s. Now Yous highlight ‘Like Lightning&r...view item »

Fatima
And Yet It's All Love

If there were any justice in the world, Fatima would be selling out stadiums and schmoozing at the Grammy’s. The Swedish singer’s 2014 debut LP Yellow Memories was a glorious neo-soul record that held eloquence, confession and groove in perfect equilibrium. Four years on, And Yet It’s All Love...view item »

Yuri Urano
Autline

Yet more club goodness from Central Processing Unit (BMX Krew, Paul Blackford) here. Yuri Urano’s style is a little more rough-and-ready than the buoyant electro fare the Sheffield label has become known for. Autline’s title track, for instance, is a clangin...view item »

TVAM
Psychic Data

Lauren Laverne once observed of TVAM that Joe Oxley’s one-man band sounds like a club-friendly version of Spiritualized. Laverne was right. Many of the tunes on debut LP Psychic Data combine big techno beats with those perky psychedelic/shoegaze/Krautrock sounds that Jason...view item »

Splendid Swedish sound artist BJ Nilsen enters the summer 2018 team of furniture-movers for new album Focus Intensity Power.

Max Ananyev
Water Atlas

Russian ambient instrumentalist Max Ananyev might just be one of those guys who will cite obscure philosophers at your dinner party. Luckily his music has the same qualities of endlessness, carried by meandering pianos and expansive soundscapes, without the dreariness. On 2018’s Water Atlas, you'll find nothing bu...view item »

Deru
Torn In Two

LA label Friends Of Friends (Shlohmo, Gun Selectah) release an LP of microtonal experiments from Deru. As one might expect from an album where the primary sound artefacts are discordant drones, Torn In Two isn’t exactly easy listening. Deru’s experience of c...view item »

Preacherman Plays T.J. Hustler’s Greatest Hits

Tim Jones is one of those oddballs that you can neither imagine nor plan for. Back in the 1980s Jones performed in Las Vegas lounges under the name of Preacherman.

As one might expect from a film co-written and directed by RZA, The Man With The Iron Fists comes with a pretty mighty soundtrack.

Largely operating in the 90s and early 00s before a 2015 comeback EP, Ben Stokes tended not to rush his Dimensional Holofonic Sound (DHS) releases.

Last Of The Country Gentlemen

Josh T. Pearson was the frontman of Texan psychedelic rock outfit Lift To Experience. “Last Of The Country Gentlemen” is his debut solo outing.

Occasionally, he breaks into gentle melody, on opener...view item »

Apparat
The Devil’s Walk

I had a gripe last week about electronic artists putting vocals on stuff.

Popular hedonist Connan Mockasin has probably been sleeping in his pillow fort for the last couple of years but he returns with more ineffable R&B tinged indie rock. Jassbusters is his third record and is apparently the prologue to a five-part film he's making, esoteri...view item »

Richard Ashcroft
Natural Rebel

I mean will you just look at him. This 'natural rebel' was of course best known for being the frontman of the Verve until they multi imploded.
