Sold out - sorry!

Amber Arcades
Fading Lines

Heavenly records release Fading Lines, the dreamy debut from Amber Arcades. Beach House’s slow melancholy is an obvious reference for the group, but they add enough unique instrumental touches and electronic textures to stand out. This inventive indie-pop is perfect to drift asleep too. Available on CD and vinyl LP.

Andrew Bird
Are You Serious

Andrew Bird is one of those reasonably popular singer songwriter types who just sits under most peoples radar. Maybe all this will change with this new record which has been scrubbed a little more than previous discs for potential mass appeal. Expect stories in song and dusty Americana that is not afraid of being rootsy. 


Anohni of Antony And The Johnsons presents her solo project. Production assistance from big-guns Hudson Mohawke and Oneohtrix Point Never make this a kaleidoscopic electronic experience, her ever-soaring vocals above a busy dance-swirl. Ecstatic and experimental. Hopelessness is released by Rough Trade.

Arthur Russell
Tower of Meaning

Sold out - sorry!

Ash Koosha

The consistently reliable Ninja Tune label unveil the debut from Ash Koosha. The Iranian born and London based artist makes a dense, and purposefully inhuman electronica that is rooted in sound design, as well as drone and widescreen techno. The unique compositions on | AKA | are striking in their complexity, but emotionally powerful too.


With Battles releasing their new LP, Juice B Crypts, what better time than now to relive Mirrored, their highly regarded 2007 debut. The band sprung out of a highly creative scene in New York which included bands such as LCD Soundsystem, Dirty Projectors and Animal Collective, to name a few. Includes the single, Atlas.

Death And Vanilla
Death And Vanilla

The year was 2012 when we first got offered copies of this, the first album from Death and Vanilla. It was a Normans favourite but like all good things disappeared very quickly. Fire Records have since helped take the band to new levels of popularity by unleashing the band's second album 'Where the Wild Things Are' and now that they are playing enormo-dromes have kindly re-issued their earlier hard-to-find work including this album that according to his review seemed to cause Phil immense personal hygiene problems on first listening.  

Death And Vanilla

Oh kind people at Fire Records, fresh from issuing Death and Vanilla's much loved second album 'Where the Wild Things Are' have now embarked on a re-issue programme of the bands earlier work including this now impossi-find debut EP. This was the record that first informed us that there could indeed be life after Broadcast. It now re-unleashed on blue vinyl for those who missed out first time round.  

Death And Vanilla
From Above

Fire Records have kindly re-issued this two track 7" from everybody's favourite post-Broadcast swirling dream-poppers Death and Vanilla. Originally released on the Great Pop Supplement it has already been re-pressed twice selling out quickly each time. Comes on blue vinyl and is re-issued alongside Death And Vanilla’s debut self-titled album and EP.

John Carpenter
Dark Star - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Dark Star was the first feature film that John Carpenter directed: he also, naturally, provided the soundtrack, a smorgasbord of synthy bleeps, bloops and tones. This reissue on we release whatever the fuck we want comes as a 12” with the OST and a 7” featuring an Alan Howarth rework and a locked groove of sound effects.

John Congleton and The Nighty Nite
Until The Horror Goes

John Congleton has made a name for himself producing for eccentric indie artists such as St. Vincent and David Byrne. With Until The Horror Goes he and his band The Nighty Nite show that they can be just as playful and witty. Congleton’s strained and deadpan vocals hold together a dense pop rock collage with everything from theremin to rap breakdowns.

July Skies
The Weather Clock

July Skies probably define the term 'wistful'. Antony Harding's project come out of the same West Midlands-based stable of artists as the likes of Epic45 nd make a gorgeously dreamy kind of music that recalls the Durutti Column and Felt. The Weather Clock was initially released in 2008 on Make Mine Music but has been given a deserved vinyl re-press courtesy of Rivertones. 


Sold out - sorry!

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard
Nonagon Infinity

Not only is Nonagon Infinity a berserk, psychedelic piece of prog-metal, but it is the fourth album this Australian band have released in a year and a half. This vinyl LP or CD from King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard borrows the sound of 70s hard-rock but connects it with their distinctive improvisational sound.


Sold out - sorry!

Matt Elliott
The Calm Before

Matt Elliott launched his career with ferocious albums of experimental drum and bass under his The Third Eye Foundation alias, but on his subsequent solo work he’s focused that energy on inventive folk and acoustic music. The Calm Before continues this approach with six pieces of delicate and rich songwriting.  

Odd Nosdam

Sold out - sorry!

Richmond Fontaine
You Can't Go Back If There's Nothing To Go Back To

Richmond Fontaine have a name that sounds like a solo artist, but don’t be fooled: this is a band through and through. You Can’t Go Back If There’s Nothing To Go Back To, their tenth album, is another gorgeous, heavily-laden alt-country sprawl. The band is accompanied for the first time by members of The Delines and The Decemberists. Available in regular editions, and in a deluxe LP version with exclusive bonus CD.

September Girls
Age of Indignation

Dublin band September Girls make a jittery art-rock built from ghostly vocals and atmospheric guitar playing. Age of Indignation is their second studio album and channels their interest in Irish politics and feminism into a wall of distortion and effects. Fortuna POP! release the album on CD and vinyl LP.

The Kills
Ash & Ice

The Kills return after significant (surgery-recovery-related) time away with their fifth album, Ash & Ice. The duo have found a way to squeeze their tense vibe into a tightly restrained sound, though the old sharp blues-rock pokes out of the edges here and there. Released by Domino on CD or as a double LP.

The Monochrome Set
Volume, Contrast, Brilliance... Vol.2

The Monochrome Set are a lesser-known troupe of indie / post-punkers, although their influence was later visible in bands like Franz Ferdinand and The Divine Comedy. Volume, Contrast, Brilliance… Vol. 2 compiles a bundle of demos (home and studio) that span their 1978-1991 existence. On Tapete, with some informative liner notes.

The Range

The Range is James Hinton’s project, in which he dives into the infinite space of YouTube, dragging out vocal samples and repurposing them as the centre of his euphoric electronic tracks. But don’t worry, the vocalists will get due recognition in an upcoming documentary, Superimpose. Potential is released by Domino.

The Replacements
The Sire Years

Sold out - sorry!

Barbara Barbara, We Face A Shining Future

UK dance music originals Underworld return with Barbara, Barbara We Face A Shining Future their first release in six years. The band’s tight synth pop dynamics and heavy, house percussion still feel fresh, as does their commitment to bringing some wit and silliness to electronic music. Available as vinyl LP and CD.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra / SILICON

Sold out - sorry!

White Denim

White Denim’s high-energy garage/indie hybrid has always been built on loops developed in extensive jams. Stiff pushes this even further, in fact, making the songs looser than ever before. There’s bluesy riffing, weird little rockabilly breakdowns and a general experimental motivation to include whatever sounds good.
