Peter Broderick
Two Balloons

Post-rock indie-ambienteer Peter Broderick’s original soundtrack to Mark E. Smith’s - no, sorry, it’s Mark C. Smith’s animated short Two Balloons, which follows the aeronautical adventures of two lemurs. The music, which was partly recorded using wire recorders and AM consoles, h...view item »

Bad Sports
Constant Stimulation

Texans Bad Sports bring a fresh approach to proto punk and power pop with their fourth album, Constant Stimulation. The trio, fronted by the wonderfully named Orville Neeley, sound frustrated with the state of the world in 2018, as the album title suggests, there’s just too much going on! LP and CD on Dirtnap....view item »

Alastor
Slave To The Grave

Swedish doomsayers Alastor proudly boast that their latest LP Slave To The Grave is a ‘7-track hateful gospel’. I don’t know if you’d necessarily describe this music as hateful - most of the melodies are actually pretty tasteful - but it’s certainly heavy. This is the sort of psych-y doom m...view item »

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 »

Blood Red Shoes
Get Tragic

Look how airbrushed they are now. This is probably the point in the biography of Blood Red Shoes where all hell breaks loose. They'd already split up once and gone off in very separate ways before reconvening until the guitarist broke her arm after falling off a motorbike. Her mother might well be furious with her but it led to ...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.

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 »

EP-4
Lingua Franca-1

Kyoto sextet EP-4 first released this bizarre no-wave mutant funk album, rich with cheese-bass, drawled vocals and fab percussion, in 1983. WRWTFWW Records thinks you should hear it again in 2018 and it’s good advice. The pace tends to be quite slow and...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 »

The Ar-Kaics
In This Time

Pilfering a good 60-odd years worth of music history for inspiration we bring you Richmond, Virginia garage rockers The Ar-Kaics and their new album In This Time.

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 »

Kallaloo
Star Child

Reissued for the first time: a splendid, sought-after Caribbean disco number from 1982 with uplifting duet vocals, bass too hot for TV, psychedelic guitar and synth and drums with enough claps to wear out an entire production line of sound-activated switches. Side A is the five-minute ‘Short Version’, which is all well and good, but ...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 »

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 »

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.

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 »

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 »

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
The Lucky Ones

Satan’s Satyrs singer Clayton Burgess (also of Electric Wizard) says of his band that ‘it doesn’t sound like anything else happening right now’. He’s correct - The Lucky Ones sounds like something that happened many years ago, specifically some time around 1974. The band&rs...view item »

Bauhaus
Mask

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.

Bauhaus
In The Flat Field

The best thing about this album is not what it sounds like, but what it doesn't. Leave your preconceptions about goth at the door, Bauhaus are at heart a post-punk band with a diverse range of influences. In a way, it's a shame that Bauhaus' work spawned a genre that has been burdened with so many stereotypes, and these do neither the album nor ...view item »
