Early Autumn Pre-orders

"An Earlier Autumn" said the Field Mice one time. But whether it is early or not this year,  the leaves on the ground tell us it's definitely here. So what better time then than to have a look at some of the upcoming records we can all snuggle up to in front of the fire in the pitch black darkness which begins about 4PM.

Atmosphere
Mi Vida Local

Mi Vida Local is the seventh album from long time "alt-rappers" Atmosphere. It's coming up on three decades now that the duo of Slug and Ant have been practicing their craft, but more importantly it's been two years since their last album. America's last two years have been troubled and in response the band...view item »

Bauhaus
The Bela Session

A reissue of perhaps Bauhaus’ most popular song, the majestic goth classic ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’. Now, this is a song arguably better known in a live version, but here we have the original 1979 studio recording, presented alongside four other tracks from the session, three of which have never seen the ligh...view item »

Bill Wells
Remixes For Seksound

Blue Orchids
Righteous Harmony Fist

Martin Bramah was an early member of The Fall, but unlike so many of those Fallen soldiers, he has continued to develop and grow the musical territory of his particular Fall period. With his band Blue Orchids, his latest release is the punchy-sounding Righte...view item »

Dinosaur Jr.
Ear Bleeding Country - The Best Of Dinosaur Jr.

Cherry Red Records issue a revamped edition of Dinosaur Jr’s career-spanning compilation Ear Bleeding Country. This new version updates the 2002 original with highlights from the subsequent sixteen years of output from J. Mascis et al. There’s even a couple of tracks from Ma...view item »

DJ Shadow
The Private Press

DJ Shadow. A god to some perhaps. Always been a personal hero of mine and when I saw him live the other week he rocked my world in a slight hip hop bouncy fashion . Now his new album didn't impress me when I first heard it months ago. But after months and months of perseverance as I couldn't believe th...view item »

Django Django
Winter's Beach

At the start of 2018, London art-rockers Django Django released their third album, Marble Skies. By that time however, they were so consumed by inspiration that they were already in the studio working on some spiffy new tunes. The result of those sessions was Winter’s Beach, a six track EP. 12” and CD on Because Musi...view item »

Donny McCaslin
Blow.

First album from veteran saxophonist Donny McCaslin since he helped define the sound of David Bowie's final album, Blackstar. On Blow McCaslin enjoys the liberation he learned from Bowie, drawing on everything from 90s hip-hop to contemporary electronic ...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 »

Ensemble Economique
Radiate Through You

Brian Pyle is back  with another round of uneasy compositions for Denovali. You radiated through him on the last track of Light that Comes, Light that Goes and now it’s time to radiate through yourself. Or it’s time for him to radiate through you. With his music. Which wafts its gloomy way through ambie...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 »

Ian William Craig
Thresholder

Ian William Craig is always very welcome round these parts, and Thresholder, the man’s first album in eighteen months, demonstrates why. Those tape machines of his are put to work in the construction of an eleven-track, forty-minute sound environment. Deep and gorgeous smeared ambience, on FatCat sub-label 130701....view item »

Irmin Schmidt
5 Klavierstücke

An album of solo piano pieces from Can keyboardist Irmin Schmidt here. The five tracks of 5 Klavierstücke are one-take improvisations which were recorded on two grand pianos - one prepared, one unprepared - and augmented with ambient noise from around the studio in the south of France. The prepared...view item »

Jackson C. Frank
Jackson C. Frank

Earth Records brings us this reissue of a lost folk gem, originally released back in 1965 this album by Jackson C Frank was produced by none other than Paul Simon after he saw Frank playing in an old folk club. It’s the sound of a real folk legend but with lots of soul and blues to give an extra little twis...view item »

Jason Williamson
Happy Days

Sleaford Mods lead barker Jason Williamson is back with his third book of stories and things after his lyrics book Grammar Wanker and Slabs From Paradise. This time it's about really grim things like dogging places, shit pubs, appalling housing, twats, people fighting, lowlife scum, arses, really bad precincts, ...view item »

Julia Holter
Aviary

It may well be difficult to think of a record more expansive than Julia Holter's 2015 opus 'Have You In My Wilderness' but it seems like 'Aviary' might just do it. This 15 song record explores the feeling of cacophony we feel on living in the modern world and a search for solitude and sweetness. Holter's theatrical vocals and cinematic synth wor...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 »

Kurt Vile
Bottle It In

Well here's something rather exciting - a brand new album from melody-drenched longhair Kurt Vile. Thirteen new songs from the prolific troubadour to add to his storied back catalogue of laid back, stoned-out, gently rocking things. This time he's been inspired by travel and the exciting life experiences touring gives but also t...view item »

Laura Veirs
Saltbreakers

Saltbreakers was Laura Veirs 6th album, originally released in 2007. It showcased a fuller sound than her previous work with full band arrangements and a fuller production but is still mesmerisingly beautiful. Veirs music always sounds like it was written next the sea on a cold winters day. How does she do it? I don't k...view item »

Liars
Titles With The Word Fountain

Last remaining Liar Angus Andrew, who continues to compensate for solitude by cloning himself in every promo photo and video, returns with new album of definitely-not-TFCF-outtakes Titles from the Word Fountain. Packing seventeen not-leftover songs into the programme, from ‘Face in Ski Mask Bodies to the Wind’ and &l...view item »

Makaya McCraven
Universal Beings

Get ready for some more Epic Jazz -- 2018 has been another good year for it, what with Kamasi and all -- it's hot jazz drummer and producer Makaya McCraven with his latest LP 'Universal Beings'. The record was cut at two intimate live sessions and two impromptu studio sessions, in four cities: New York, Chicago, London ...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 »

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. Genesis lend obscure and absorbing spoken-word, around which Merz builds engrossing and intense tex...view item »

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
Architecture & Morality

Good time to be an Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark fan: to celebrate forty years on from the group’s activities, some nice reissues have been put together. Architecture & Morality...view item »

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark
Dazzle Ships

It's a great time to be an Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark fan: forty years on from the group’s formation, four of their classic albums are getting reissues. 1983’s Dazzle Ships ...view item »

Peter, Bjorn and John
Darker Days

Peter, Bjorn and John, who are a fully-fledged real band and not just a holding company for advertising royalties from ‘that’ song, present their eighth full-length album, Darker Days. The title is a...view item »

R.E.M
R.E.M. At The BBC

More audio than you could ever need of R.E.M performing at the BBC. This follows the band from their legendary 1985 performance at Rock City (the first time many UK fans got a proper taste of Stipe & co) all the way through to later live performances, session tracks and most excitingly perhaps, a DVD of all their television ...view item »

Sandra Kerr & John Faulkner
The Music From Bagpuss

Hello all 40+ somethings out there. You'll remember big saggy 70s cloth cat Bagpuss from your favourite childhood television show and the beautifully constructed folk soundtrack it snored around? Brings back memories doesn't it? Well the soundtrack actually works as a lovely album even without the nostalgia associated with the cat and now you ca...view item »

Smashing Pumpkins
SHINY AND OH SO BRIGHT, VOL. 1 / LP: NO PAST. NO FUTURE. NO SUN.

The Smashing Pumpkins are so excited about the release of their brand new album that they’ve given it two or three titles! Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun. (didn’t I t...view item »

Soft Cell
Northern Lights / Guilty (Cos I Say You Are)

They are back back back folks: Marc Almond’s classic synth-pop concern Soft Cell, presenting their first new material since the heady days of 2002. Although apparently this is a bit of a farewell release too… Northern Lights doffs a cap to the Northern Soul sound, which had a key influence ...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 »

Sufjan Stevens
Songs For Christmas

Speaking of box sets our old SUFJAN STEVENS has been well busy as we have a 5 CD box set in this week. Apparently the sentimental chap releases a Christmas EP each year and Rough Trade/ Asthmatic Kitty have collected them together for a limited box set release type thing (in time for xmas). Loads of carols...view item »

The Fall
I Am Kurious Oranj

Like most Fall albums, this one contains filler, but the strong material is lethal. From the steamroller opening track "New Big Prinz" to the surprisingly pretty instrumental "Overture From 'I am Curious, Orange'" amusingly pockmarked by Brix' ejaculations, to the disturbing "Jerusalem" to the vintage Fall "Wrong Place, Right Time" to the Fall's...view item »

The Fall
The Rough Trade Singles

Superior Viaduct reissue a collection of seminal early singles from The Fall. All released in the first few years of the 1980s by Rough Trade, these eight studio originals and two live versions snapshot a band in their element. Mark E. Smith & co made so many essential piece...view item »

The Lucid Dream
Actualisation

The Lucid Dream put their bad luck (their gear was all stolen in Paris in 2017) firmly behind them with fourth album Actualisation, a record that could not have come to be without some great fan support. The album works some big acid house vibes into the group’s general big psychedelia, as well as some delightful ...view item »

The Nightingales
Perish The Thought

The Nightingales formed in 1979. The post-punk Brummies, fronted by Robert Lloyd, were favourites of John Peel and John Robb. They split in 1986 after making three albums. They reformed in 2004 and Perish the thought will be their 7th post-reformation LP. The album features guest performances from members of ...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 »

The Rutles
The Rutles

The Rutles started life as a Beatles pastiche band. They were formed by Neil Innes of the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band and Eric Idle of Monty Python fame. This self-titled LP was their first album, released in 1978, and was also the soundtrack to their film All You Ne...view item »

The Telescopes
Early Studio Recordings

Telescopic noisegazers The Telescopes are best known these days for steadily releasing ear-splitting beauties ever since breaking a decade’s silence in 2002. So just in case you’d forgotten that they have numerous releases from before then, here’s Early Studio Recordings, where you’ll fin...view item »

Thom Yorke
Suspiria (Music for the Luca Guadagnino Film)

It's true then. Thom Yorke is soundtracking Luca Guadagnino's reimagining of the 1977 Dario Argento horror flick. And here is as much proof as you'd need. The soundtrack is a mix of score work, interludes and some actual normal songs featuring Thom singing. If you are a Radiohead fan you should be excited. ...view item »

Thou
Inconsolable

My friends, my dear friends, listen up: it is the year of Thou. In addition to releasing their new grungy doom opus Magus, they've been releasing a series of EPs that give them a chance to try out other things. Inconsolable is perhaps the most significant outlier in their ...view item »

Tricky
Maxinquaye

Tricky’s Maxinquaye has retained its power and significance long after the term / scene that it first appeared in, trip-hop, has faded from favour. Working closely with vocalist Martina Topley-Bird, Tricky lurks his way around some real classics. 180 gram vinyl reissue for the 20t...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 »
