Georgia Anne Muldrow
Overload

Georgia Anne Mudrow can count Erkyah Badu, Mos Def, and Blood Orange as fans. So the question you should be asking yourself is why aren't you? Overload is Mudrow's first album on Brainfeeder, which turns out to be the perfect...view item »

Various
Brainfeeder X

We all like a bit of Flying Lotus's imprint Brainfeeder but it can be hard to keep up with their deluge of releases. So this handy compilation could be a good place to get acquainted or re-aquainted with the LA based beats people. It's a 4LP (or 2CD) collection of their best bits containing all your favourites such as  ...view item »

How To Dress Well
The Anteroom

We all can laugh now at how much I hated the last How to Dress Well album but maybe Tom Krell hated it too as he's followed it up with one long piece of psychedelic music that taps into the long forgotten experimental core of his band. This could be the best or worst thing you hear all year but at least he's left that boyband st...view item »

Thought Gang
Thought Gang

So who are Thought Gang then? Well just David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti that's all. The duo have of course worked together for many years, most famously on the Twin Peaks soundtrack but here they move away slightly from the cool jazz and cinematic sounds of earlier collaborations towards...view item »

Mattiel
Customer Copy

Customer Copy is the second album by Mattiel. She was raised on a diet of ‘60s folk and pop including Donovan and The Monkees. She mixes these influences with her own musical discoveries such as The White Stripes to create an album heavy on retro sounds. Imagine Nancy Sinatra fronting The Wh...view item »

Janek Schaefer (For Robert Wyatt)

Scholarly sound artist Janek Schaefer has been doing his thing while garnering acclaim for at least two decades now, and here he is with a new work that showcases his transient sound at its most accessible. The new record (For Robert Wyatt) - 'What Light There Is Tells Us Nothing' was constructed from parts of Wyatt's '...view item »

Jessica Moss

Entanglement is album number three from Jessica Moss. Moss earned her stripes with a fifteen year stint in Canadian post-everything band Thee Silver Mt. Zion (and all variations on that name). She has also worked with such luminaries as Vic Chesnutt and Ca...view item »

Klaus Johann Grobe
Du bist so symmetrisc

In case anyone was wondering, this is a group not a man (like a Swiss version of Danny Wilson I guess). They play the sort of mixture of pulsing kraut inspired electronics and wild psych moves that you will enjoy if you like people like Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Cavern of Anti Matter. They throw a few dance m...view item »

Brix & The Extricated
Breaking State

We knew when Brix Smith-Start talked about putting the Extricated on hold after Mark E Smith's death then it wouldn't be for long. The outfit have emerged out of tribute band territory to forge their own sound and last year's 'Part 2' wasn't bad at all. Expect moody post punk soundscapes led by Brix's Hollywood meets Manchester yowl. If we can't...view item »

Current 93
The Light Is Leaving Us All

David Tibet's never-ending Current 93 project continues to do its thing with The Light Is Leaving Us All, another foray into the deep web of psych folk that will most likely shake you to your very core.

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 »

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.

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 »

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 »

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 »

Fed up with today’s boring dystopia of perpetual connectivity and online networking? So is Helsinki tram driver-turned-cheerful-songwriter Jaakko Eino Kalevi.

Miles Davis & John Coltrane
Trane's Blues

Reissue of a couple great early Miles Davis and John Coltrane cuts.

Listen to Coltrane's high-intensity sax and D...view item »

Atmosphere
Mi Vida Local

Mi Vida Local is the seventh album from long time "alt-rappers" Atmosphere.

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.

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 »
