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. Previo...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 dus...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 li...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, c...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 an...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 the...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 »

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 ...view item »

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.

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 »

Atmosphere

Laibach
The Sound of Music

If there aren’t many bands like Laibach, then there are even fewer bands who can say that they’ve performed in North Korea. And there will quite possibly never be another album like this.

R.E.M.
The Best Of R.E.M. At The BBC

You'll have to be a pretty big R.E.M fan to wade through the various sessions and live performances on the big bumper CD box set that accompanies this release.

Medicine Boy
Lower

Berlin-based Cape Town duo Medicine Boy are now members of London’s Fuzz Club - just in time for their second LP! This one’s called Lower and positively brims with tension.

Synth-pop!
