35007
Liquid

35007 are an experimental rock band from Eindhoven in the Netherlands. They tinker with sub-genres such as space rock, psychedelic rock, stoner rock and prog rock. Their third album, Liquid, is an instrumental record, featuring 4 long, dynamic pieces that ebb, flow, crash and wig out. Coloured vinyl reissue on Stickman.

Adolfo Waitzman
Pensione paura

Pensione Paura aka Hotel Fear, is an Italian horror film directed by Francesco Barilli. The score by Aldofo Waitzman has sweeping romance juxtaposed with jarring and unnerving horror, all revolving around a melancholic piano theme. Waitzman was an Argentinian composer who worked mostly in Spanish film and TV. Red coloured vinyl 2LP on Arrow Records.

Adorable
Footnotes - Best Of (92-94)

We'll all remember when we woke up on February 7th 2019 (or 2008 when it was originally released) to the news that there was a best of Adorable out. It's got all the classics including 'Sunshine Smile' plus loads of B sides, hard to find rarities and even an unreleased edit of a track off their debut album. That not enough for you? Well there's liner notes from all four band members plus photos and things from their personal archives. We are truly blessed.   

Agathe Max
Rêves Perdus

French violin player Agathe Max was inspired by Werner Herzog’s Cave Of Forgotten Dreams and the Chauvet Cave upon which it was based. Reves Perdus manages to transmit some sense of the elemental and historical weight of these caves through layers of winding strings and droning ambience. Very fine stuff, on the Modern Aviation tape label.

Ahmed Ag Kaedy
Akaline Kidal

Prior to Akaline Kidal, Ahmed Ag Kaedy had been working with a band for some more filled out recordings. For this album he's gone back to the basics of the Tuareg folk tradition, recording 12 tracks with just his voice and his acoustic guitar. The album is a sombre one, as he reflects on his exile from Northern Mali, and the civil war that drove him out. 

Ailie Ormston
The Sedate

Ailie Ormston is back, though not quite as you knew her. The affable, wry dreariness of her band ******** gives way on this solo effort to something harder, more minimal and even *gulp* deconstructive. Fortunately, Ailie doesn’t take this stuff as seriously as many other musicians seem to and the result is crucially as entertaining as it is enlightening. Apparently all done with just one drum machine and one synth, and all.

Al Lover
Cave Ritual

Producer Al Lover continues to extend the inexplicable fondness musicians have for diamond shapes on their album covers with Cave Ritual, which I believe also has some music: a fascinating mix of fiery psych riffs, gooey synth and real producer shit makes this one up, the beats as firm and thrilling as ever. If Michael Bay ever makes a film on a handheld camera, he knows who to call.

Al Lover
Cave Ritual Redux

Al Lover takes the splice-tastic production techniques of a hip-hop beatmaker and applies them to the sonic domain of psych-rock, creating an interesting effect. His Cave Ritual LP last year was much enjoyed, but apparently Lover thought he could do better, as he’s decided to Redux it with an even newer approach. On Stolen Body.

Aldona Orłowska
Nie Wiem

Preposterous polskalo-disco/Euro-house from singer and champion swimmer Aldona Orłowska and husband Eugeniusz. The title track is an irresistible vintage party tune without the faintest respect for keeping in time. It’s followed by a sleazy, scatty lounge interlude by Eugeniusz and rounded off by a Lento Reggaeton rework of the title tune. But remember - this stuff is exclusively to be played “on yachts and in opera houses.”

Alex Chilton
Songs From Robin Hood Lane

Following the first two Big Star albums in the early ‘70s, Alex Chilton has consistently thrown curveballs at his fans with his next release. I guess Songs From Robin Hood Lane, a collection of songs from the Great American Songbook should surprise no-one, then. This posthumous compilation features 4 unreleased tracks and 3 very rare out-of-print tracks. The songs chosen all reminded Chilton of his childhood home on Robin Hood Lane in Memphis. It was recorded in 1990. LP and CD on Bar-None.

Amp
Entangled Time

Entangled Time is the new and 19th album by electronic/post rock/space rock duo, Amp. It’s their first full-length studio album since Outposts in 2011. Since their inception in 1992 the duo have collaborated with a whole host of people including David Pearce of Flying Saucer Attack, Matt Elliott of Third Eye Foundation and Julian Cope collaborator Donald Ross Skinner. CD, limited to 200 hand made, hand numbered copies.

Andrew Chalk
Baroque Steps

Another instance of the unique soundworld of Andrew Chalk (of Elodie). For Baroque Steps, our man Chalk is reflecting on the passing of the season from winter to spring, a dark and magical time period which he expresses through minimal electroacoustic magic. Baroque Steps is released by Faraway Press in the vinyl format.

Andrew Chalk & Jean-Noël Rebilly
L'état Intermédiaire

Four years worth of on-off recording and live performances together have resulted in Andrew Chalk and Jean Noel Rebilly completing an album together: L’etat intermediaire. This suite of pieces features a number of acoustic instruments as well as field recordings, all handled with a delicate touch to create quietly potent music. Released by Faraway Press.

Anemone
Beat My Distance

Debut album from Anemone, a group project emerging from cold-but-creative Montreal. Beat My Distance is, however, as bright and excited as the pastel-coloured cover art, with sunny guitar tones and a psychedelic mood, led by the pop vocals and sharp lyricism of Chloe Soldevila. Released by Luminelle Recordings.

Angel-Ho
Death Becomes Her

The vital Angel-Ho lands on Hyperdub for her sophomore LP. Across Death Becomes Her we find the NON Worldwide founder turning out a selection of futuristic club jams that powerfully represent her experiences as a trans woman. Synthesizing sounds from South Africa, Atlanta, London and everywhere in between, Angel-Ho's latest offering will have the competition playing catch-up once again. The guestlist includes Gaika, Nguzunguzu’s Asmara Maroof and Queezy.

Anton Eger
Æ

The music that jazz drummer Anton Eger serves up on his debut solo LP Æ has got that Dirty Loops/Vulfpeck vibe to it. As this Norman Records™ description writer has learned that you can’t change people, he’ll remain diplomatic and simply say that Eger can undoubtedly play complicated parts very proficiently. 

Apollo Brown
Grandeur

Grandeur is an appropriately named record: Apollo Brown’s latest stretches over two LPs and brings in a stack of guests, including (but not limited to) Freddie Gibbs, Masta Ace and Vinnie Paz. Plenty of strong boasts over firm beats: highlights include Apollo dissing drugs as “Some Charles Bukowski shit”. Olive vinyl on Mello Music Group.

Attic Lights
Love In The Time Of Shark Attacks

Attic Lights drop their second LP for Elefant (BMX Bandits, The Primitives). Love In The Time Of Shark Attacks is a record that can back up its fun title with some fun songs. Anyone already familiar with the band’s work will be pleased to know that their ability to churn out charming ditties ala The Lemonheads/Teenage Fanclub remains in good nick.

audiobooks
Friends In The Bubble Bath Remixes

Everyone is a fan of audiobooks except us at Norman Records. And maybe that's not fair on the others who work here  - it probably just comes down to me not liking them. I tell you who does like them though, Welsh songstress Gwenno, and the guy from Factory Floor both of which are really happy to provide remixes. (David) Wrench does a mix too but he's already in the band so doesn't count.

Backyard Babies
Sliver & Gold

Backyard Babies are a sleaze-rock band from Sweden. 2019 sees the celebrating their 30th year as a band. Silver & Gold is their 8th album and you are guaranteed cranked-up the amps and big rock choruses yet again. Guitarist Dregen is also a founding member of The Hellacopters. For fans of The Wildhearts etc. LP and CD on Century Media.

BADBADNOTGOOD & Little Dragon
Tried

Canadian jazz outfit, BADBADNOTGOOD, have teamed up with Swedish electronic band, Little Dragon for a 7” single. The single is called Tried. It should appeal to fans of other acts who combine jazz, pop and other elements such as Flying Lotus, Thundercat and Blood Orange. 7" single on Ninja Tune.

Basic Rhythm
Dough Boy / Can't You See

Up for some gritty grime haunted by the ghosts of pirate radio? Because London’s Basic Rhythm (a.k.a., East Man) has it in spades, as usual. Here it’s a pair of tunes for Arcola, housed in a swishly foiled, die-cut outer sleeve. ‘Dough Boy’ is massive stuff. You’ll hear the word “dough” many times. Flip ‘Can’t You See’ is just as muscular, but warmer and more generous with the pads. Fab stuff.

BATTLE BREAK
BATTLE BREAK 2

Battle Break 2 is a compilation LP on PRR! PRR! It includes eleven tracks from Lastrack, B-Ball Joints, Keiska, Maoupa Mazzocchetti, DJ Caesar, DJ Wolfi Bernreuther, The Hobbeats, Clara! & DJ Coquelin, DJ Dee Kay, Venderstrooik and Aids-3D.  According to the one word press release, this cannot and will not be broken, yeah?

Belief Defect
Decadent Yet Depraved

Belief Defect are an anonymous duo, with the only information being that they are established artists in their own rights. Decadent Yet Depraved sets out their manifesto - the world is deluding itself. Combine that target with hard hitting experimental electronics and you get the soundtrack to a collision course through Laibach meeting John Carpenter.

Big Wild
Superdream

The band name is Big Wild and the LP is called Superdream, so it's wise to leave any expectations of a shy and retiring affair at the door. As expected the debut full-length from the one born Jackson Stell is about as maximalist as electronic music gets these days. Songs such as ‘Maker’ and ‘Joypunks’ (you’ve really got to start putting spaces between your words, dude) are E-number-pop of the Passion Pit/M83 school.

bis
Slight Disconnects

Bis be back! Again! After having broken up and reformed a couple times since they started out in 1994, the Glaswegian band look like they've stuck with a bit longer this time with Slight Disconnects, their second album in five years. After all this time Bis remain masters of the indie pop chorus, and have even managed to fit in a bit of reflection on the last 25 years.

Black Merlin
Kode

Die Orakel (Upsammy, Roman Flügel) with an EP of frosty techno here. In fact, Black Merlin’s Kode isn’t really techno at all, more a series of spooky modular loops that cast but a cursory glance at the dancefloor. It’s eerie and oddly compelling stuff - think Hieroglyphic Being, Dolo Percussion and Thomas Fehlmann.

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 the band using more synths and exploring new sounds and then going to LA (as you do) to make this 'comeback' album. It's one of those that could be brilliant or terrible. Let's find out...

Brainwaltzera
Epi-Log

As the old saying goes, one person’s EP is another person’s mini-LP. However, Brainwaltzera can’t seem to to make up their mind which side to come down on - we heard that the six-track Epi-Log was the latter, but the FILM Records Bandcamp thinks otherwise. Whatever it is, it’s another fine release from the mysterious producer. The tracks here include retrofuturist jams ala Jam City’s Dream A Garden (‘Bad Endgar’), lurching IDM (‘CountDempops’) and Brainfeeder-style MPC work (‘Laif Of Smit’).

Budgie
Holy Ghost Zone

Let's face it, it's hard not to be skeptical of a record that uses 2008 text slang to write song titles: Depend On U, Want 2 Love U and 4 Your Service. Is it just me? Apparently the 'spiritual successor' to some previous releases (which kinda' makes sense really. No?) that blends 90's gospel with 'a modern vibe'. Holy Ghost Zone by Budgie is available on vinyl LP and released on Holy Ghost Zone. 

Cabaret Contemporain
Séquence Collective

Pretty cool record from French group Cabaret Contemporain here. On their third LP Sequence Collective the band attempt to transplant the classic techno stylings of Hood, Mills et al into a live band format. Attempts to do this sort of thing don’t always come off, but Cabaret Contemporain succeed through the deftness of their arrangements and knowledge that groove is paramount.

Carson McHone
Carousel

Carson McHone is, obviously, an alt-country artist. Her new album Carousel is an eleven track set of good stuff, with a bit of modern (sixties) influences in there along with the honk and the tonk. If you are doing country, you’ve got to do it right, and Carson has the songwriting and the vocal chops to pull it off with style. Out on Loose.

Chain Wallet
No Ritual

Chain Wallet recorded their new album No Ritual in a beach cabin in Norway: does this mean we can hear some surf guitar influences amidst the fuzz here? Quite possibly. No Ritual also features the vocals of shoegazer Chiara Cavallari, adding a lush extra element to the Chain Wallet sound. On Jansen.

Charles Ditto
In Human Terms

In Human Tems is the 1988 debut album of Charles Ditto, a fellow with a fine collection of midi-synths and the melodic and experimental instincts to put them to great use. The sounds (lots of Rolands) are distinctly of their time, but that doesn’t stand in the way of one's enjoyment of the odd-pop structures that Ditto puts them into. Reissued by Telephone Explosion.

Chris Potter
Circuits

Now, those who don’t know what’s up might assume that an album named Circuits, with cover art like that, was gonna be a suite of modular synth wogglings or Mego electro-fizz… But they would be wrong! Chris Potter is a noted saxophonist, and this album features him and his band jazing out big-time! Nice. On Edition Records.

Clarence Séti
Jungle Quest

We don’t know much about this material that Clarence Seti put together in 1991, partly because it was only ever a demo CD. But all that matters is the music, these twelve tracks that we are now able to hear. Jungle Quest will certainly require you to have a taste for digital keyboards, and Seti really lays into his collection here, but this will charm many. Out on Lily Record.

Claudia Anderson
Synthesis

The latest drop on Tresor Records (Donato Dozzy, Moritz von Oswald) comes courtesy of a resident DJ from the label’s parent-venue. Claudia Anderson is well-known to Berlin partygoers for her ability to spin high-calibre techno for hours at a time, and in the form of Synthesis she’s now got five more mid-set weapons at her disposal. Well, actually make that four more - as gorgeous as it is, the beat-free title track is more of a palette cleanser than a club banger.

Clint Mansell
Happy New Year, Colin Burstead (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Clint Mansell is now more well-known for being a composer of film scores rather than being in Pop Will Eat Itself, and perhaps that’s a good thing as he seems to be pretty good at his current career. He already has scores to Pi, Moon, High Rise and Black Mirror under his belt. His latest score is for Ben Wheatley’s new film, Happy New Year, Colin Burstead. It should match the film well as it starts off with a considered use of woodwinds and being hypnotic and ethereal in nature, before twisting into something much darker and unhinged. LP and CD on Invada.

Cochemea
All My Relations

Cochemea Gastelum is likely best known for being a sax player with Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings. All My Relations, on Daptone of course, is a profoundly personal reflection on his life. Jazz meets the music of his Yaqui and Mescalero Apache Indian heritage for an album written collectively and through improvisation.

Cory Kilduff
When It All Gets To Be Too Much

Cory Kilduff was raised on a diet of ‘80s movies. Therefore purveyor of teen angst, John Hughes, played a huge part in his life. When It All Gets To Be Too Much is inspired by actress Molly Ringwald’s more emotional moments on screen. Coloured vinyl LP, limited to 500 copies on Burning Witches Records.

Cucina Povera
Hilja

Back at it with the sound art, constantly pushing the boundaries of music creation. Cucina Povera (originally from Finland, hence talks/sings in Finnish occasionally), is a Glasgow-based sound artist and Hilja is her latest release. If you're familiar with ASMR, you'll get that tingly hit straight to the back of your neck as soon as she opens her mouth. Available on vinyl LP and released on Night School. First press is limited to 300 copies, and contain hand-screened sleeves. 

Cucina Povera
Zoom

Cucina Povera (who shares her moniker with the 309th best restaurant in Thessaloniki), real name Maria Rossi, is a sound artist and vocalist. Zoom is her very raw document of places and spaces she has found herself in. Using just a Tascam Zoom recorder and a loop pedal, she creates sonic maps which provide an overwhelming sense of being there with her.

Damon Zucconi
Untitled Substance

Debut music release from Philadelphia based tech focussed artist Damon Zucconi. Known primarily for his visual work, including a piece for Arca, on Untitled Substance Zucconi takes his visual practice of "perceptual recognition manipulation and digital mis-engineering" and applies it to music. The result is some truly gnarly Baltimore inspired club music and a number of more abstract interludes.

Dark Fog
Make You Believe

Dark Fog’s music is like a fog that’s so thick it feels like soup. Defying genre and classification, Make You Believe is murky, noisy, with high-pitched vocals leaking in through the cracks in the wall of sound. Endless riffs and frenetic drums, sometimes parting ways to leave room for a tiny moment of respite, kick out the floor and leave you falling. 

Dave Liebman, Adam Rudolph, Hamid Drake
Chi

First time meeting for the trio of saxophonist Dave Liebman with superb percussionists Adam Rudolph and Hamid Drake. The album is titled Chi, and the freely improvised pieces here take that concept as their root, leading to a powerful and spiritual statement. Plus, you get to hear Hamid use his frame drum, which is always wonderful. On RareNoise.

David Bowie
Let’s Dance

Trust David Bowie to make one of the most commercially successful records of the 80s. After his Berlin trilogy where he explored the more art rock side of things he thought hey feck it I'm going to dye my hair bleach blonde work with Nile Rogers and become a proper pop star for a bit. This contains all those mega hits  - China Girl, Let's Dance, Modern Love and that's just the first three tracks. 

David Bowie
Tonight

After David Bowie released Let's Dance he was as big as he'd ever been and decided to strike while the iron was hot. The resulting album is 1984's Tonight, which was largely successful at keeping the general public interested in him. For all its commercial ambitions Tonight remained a Bowie album, with the video for Blue Jean really being a 20 minute short film. 

David Bowie
Never Let Me Down

What are we to make of the David Bowie album that the man himself disliked the most? The album he has described as being "awful", an album he wondered why he recorded? Whatever he thought of it, 1987's Never Let Me Down remains interesting because the man was so interesting, especially as it was conceived in tandem for the ridiculously over the top Glass Spider tour. 

David Vassalotti
Guitar Dream

David Vassalotti is probably best known as being the guitarist with Floridian 4AD indie band, Merchandise. Guitar Dream is his third solo album and was produced by his band mate, Merchandise vocalist, Carson Cox. It is sort of a break-up album featuring a revolving cast of crestfallen characters. The songs are more akin to the work of his band than his previous more experimental albums. LP and CD on Wharf Cat Records.

Dead Witches
The Final Exorcism

More thick, chunky, guitar gnarl from Dead Witches. The Final Exorcism mines an entertaining seam of doomy gothic religion (‘Fear The Priest’!) and fuzzed-out riff churn. Dead Witches play it like they mean it, and it sounds just right. Out on the most literally named label in the game, Heavy Psych Sounds.

Deer Tick
Mayonnaise

In 2017, Rhode Island rock/folk/rock/country/rock band Deer Tick released two compilation albums, Vol.1 and Vol.2. Now they’re giving us Mayonnaise, which is a close relative, containing alternative versions of songs first released on the two volumes. What I want to know, however, is why did they call this Mayonnaise when the first two had such prosaic names? Surely Mayonnaise should be called Vol.1 & 2 v2.0, shouldn’t it? LP on Partisan Records incl. Bonus 7”.

Delta Rain Dance (Glenn Astro)
Trancemission/Transmission

See, Glenn Astro’s new Delta Rain Dance, yeah - it’s a Trancemission right, but it’s also a Transmission. Get it? So what that means is that the first side (the Trancemisison) of this album is all pretty keys and dub techno with the techno taken out, while the second (the Transmission) brings things back to the floor through some leftfield house and dub techno with the techno left in. Think Grouper, Garrett and Ross From Friends.

Derek Bailey & Cyro Baptista
Cyro

Derek Bailey’s ever-idiosyncratic free-improvised guitar meets the assorted instruments of Brazilian percussionist Cyro Baptista. This makes for a very interesting session, as Baptista keeps trying to lure Bailey into rhythmic structures, while Bailey tries to pull Baptista into timbral and textural play. Really very enjoyable stuff, reissued here with an extra LP of previously unreleased material.

DJ Muggs
Soul Assassins: Dia Del Asesinato

Cypress Hill’s DJ Muggs drops the latest record in his intermittent Soul Assassins series. Soul Assassins: Dia Del Asesinato avoids falling into the trap of being too retroist by balancing out old-timey hardheads such as Raekwon and MF Doom with newer blood like Freddie Gibbs. The beats are beats by DJ Muggs, so they sound like that.

Dolphins Into The Future / Lieven Martens Moana
Songs Of Gold, Incandescent

Dolphins Into The Future, aka Lieven Martens Moana is a closely thought-out project that expresses its creator’s experiences through field recordings and songs, each presented with a varying degree of treatments. These pieces, first available in a myriad of other ways, are here compiled onto a private press LP in an edition of only 170.

Donovan
Barabajagal

Barabajagal was Donovan’s 7th album. It finds the Scottish folk/pop singer/songwriter in a rockier than usual frame of mind. The title track featured Jeff Beck on guitar and laid down a bluesy/psych-rock groove, with Superlungs (My Supergirl) and the exploratory psychedelia of Atlantis providing some of Donovan’s best moments. The album was produced by Mickie Most and was originally released in 1969. Reissue LP on The State51 Conspiracy.

Drama
Loneliness

Drama were making electronic music before it was cool. In the late '70s and into the '80s, bands in Eric Simpson and Don Stagg's local Ontario, Canada, were playing in guitar rock bands. Loneliness is the band's debut LP from 1978 and it's a brooding piece of electronica which shifts between New-Wave and Krautrock.

Dylan Rodrigue
Cat's Game

Dylan Rodrigue was raised within a Californian peaceful, yoga-based community. The peace was shattered when he got his hands on a copy of The Who’s classic, Who’s Next. This led him on a musical journey of discovery with The Beatles, Fugazi, Pixies, Elliott Smith, Vic Chesnutt, Neil Young and The Stooges all playing their part in creating his sound. Cats’ Game is his debut album and follows up from a four-song EP that was released last summer. LP on CD on Bad Paintings / Palamino.

Eddie Russ
Fresh Out

Eddie Russ played piano with some jazz greats in the ’60s such as Sarah Vaughan, Stan Getz and Dizzy Gillespie. In the late ‘60s he moved into jazz fusion territory and was a major figure in the Detroit jazz underground. Deep Jazz classic, Fresh Out, was his debut solo LP. Reissue LP and CD on Soul Jazz Records.

Efdemin
Wrong Movements

Lucy’s Stroboscopic Artefacts has had a great 2018 - check out the stuff the label has released by Serena Butler and L.B. Dub Corp if you don’t believe us. The third drop in SA’s Totem series comes courtesy of techno bossman Efdemin. Wrong Movements kicks off with ‘Wrong Movements (Circles)’, a thumping dub-tech-house number, before flipping the same synth groove two ways on the B-side - ‘Wrong Movements (Left)’, a spiralling minimal number, and the weightless ‘Wrong Movements (Right)’.

Ekolali
Genom Grundet

With Genom Grundet, Swedish musician, Ekolali, has created a work that explores the effect of sustain and release. The title translates to Through The Shallows in English and this is reflected through samples of streams with tape delay, droning, barely functioning organ and komische guitar repeats and unfolds over 35 minutes. LP on Patience.

Elizabeth Cotten
Freight Train And Other North Carolina Folk Songs And Tunes

Awww Elizabeth Cotton. The first time I heard Freight Train, seriously, I thought it was my grandma singing. She has the exact same tone and intonation as my grandma's voice. Made me weep I can tell you. Cotton was one of the few female performers of country blues and her hesitant, emotional style was a unique counterpoint to the grizzled guys around at the time. Freight Train has become an all time classic. You need this.   

Entracte Twist
Entracte Twist

Self-titled album on Requiem Pour Un Twister from Parisian band Entracte Twist. Post-punk in the 70s style which means: jangly guitars, driving drums and a tasteful amount of synthesiser. This is the sort of music that is described as being effortlessly cool, which certainly isn't helped by the band singing in the language of effortlessly cool, French. 

Felsmann + Tiley
Tempora

Felsmann + Tiley are German-born musicians, Patrick Tiley and Dominik Felsmann. Whilst the pair love movie scores, piano-based pieces and the best electronic music has to offer, they often feel that all these styles stick to a path well-trodden or, in the case of film music, don’t work out of context. With Tempora, they wanted to make an album that was cinematic in range with a classical heart, using only synths. Their inspiration comes from Nils Frahm, Deadmau5, Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein - the pair who scored the Netfilx series Stranger Things and Olafur Arnalds. LP on Rare Ware Co.

Frame
The Journey

FRAME, a project by Andrea Benedetti and Eugenio Vatta are all about the particular atmosphere of a movie theatre, and have since 1992 been creating powerfully evocative soundscapes to that effect for audiences. Here in front of us we have the FRAME sound distilled into album form. The Journey is released by Glacial Movements.

Frances Cone
Late Riser

Francis Cone is classically trained, has a grandmother who studied at Julliard and a father who was a opera singer. She lives with her musical and life partner Andrew Doherty in Brooklyn New York and Brooklyn Vegan really like her music. All of which makes me so depressed about the state of my existence that I can barely tell you anything about this journey through sweeping harmonies and emotive vocals.   

Free Level
Blue Grass EP

Formed in Athens between 1983 and 1984, Free Level created '80s pop-rock which has remained largely unheard. Trust Into The Light to pick out this stellar work. Blue Grass EP contains 4 tracks, each of which move genre slightly, whilst keeping to a light and airy sense of psych and Euro pop. A really ear-catching one here.

Gareth Dickson
Orwell Court

Gareth Dickson is a long-term collaborator of Vashti Bunyan’s and a deep-reaching songwriter / musician in his own right. Orwell Court is his fourth full-length solo album, continuing his path of quiet, private sounding music. These are songs for voice and folk guitar, but the rich layers of production and instrumental augmentation make ambient texture just as important. CD release from 12k.

Go Dark
Neon Young

Bella Union, home to Beach House, Horse Thief, Mercury Rev, Pom Poko, Psychic Markers and many other two-word bands add two-word band Go Dark (Crash Gallegos and Anticon veteran Doseone Drucker) to their roster. No doubt the label was delighted to discover that the album too boasts a two-word title, Neon Young. Moreover it’s a fine wodge of cyberpunk synthpop, full of aggressive energy and razor production.

Goblin
Suspiria

Handy. Now that Thom Yorke has composed the soundtrack for the original, we are thinking you may want to hear Goblin's original. Well here it is, the soundtrack once touted as Goblin's scariest which is full put pounding thwacking and howling. Far too scary to listen to at home with the lights out. Director Dario Argento liked it so much he changed some of the script to fit the pre-written music.

Harriet Brown
Mall Of Fortune

Get ready to hit the dancefloor with Mall Of Fortune, the second album from cool guy Harriet Brown. His beautiful falsetto vocals are soulful and funky, and they are supported by the slickest of production. Features guest vocal spots from Felicia Douglass and Ana Roxanne. Released by Innovative Leisure.

Hauschka
A Different Forest

Hauschka, one of the piano lads who continue to dominate the world of accessible contemporary classical music, returns with his debut for Sony Classical. Best known for his work on the prepared piano (essentially filling the instrument with a bunch of variously relevant stuff), on A Different Forest he has opted for a purer approach. This album is heartfelt and imbued with narrative, but no less playful than he's known for being. 

Hayley and The Crushers
Cool / Lame

These sound fun. Two big beards and a lady play raucous party pop with nods towards the Ramones, the Go-Gos and vibrant surf pop.  They've been making it wet and wild all across the West Coast already and their garage-tinged pop is perfectly designed to get your pool party started. Full length debt on Eccentric Pop Records.    

Heldon
Heldon IV

Presumably the fourth Heldon album, also known as Agneta Nilsson. First released in 1976, this chunky bit of French psychedelic rock has been reissued by Bureau B. The band dart between synth-jams, gentle ambience, and genuine guitar led freak outs. Not sure what's going on on the album art but I hope the baby's okay. 

Helicon
Zero Fucks

The beautifully titled Zero Fucks EP is the first new material from Helicon in just over a year, following their debut album. The songs came out of the desire for the Glasgow cosmic noise-fuzzers to add more animated material to their live set and once they were tested at Fuzz Club 2018 in Eindhoven they knew they had to get them on tape tout suite to keep the vibe going. Sounds exciting, yeah? 10" EP on Fuzz Club, limited to 300 copies.

Horror Section
Horror Section

My mind is blank when I read 'grindhouse cinema inspired punk-rock'. Honestly, nothing. If you're like me and your mind is also completely and utterly void of what this kinda' clutching-at-straws genre could be, then maybe we should all listen to Horror Section's self titled debut release and join the other 1990 Horror Section fans on Facebook and dance around to this record. Available on vinyl LP and CD and released on Eccentric Pop Records.

Hot Lunch
Seconds

Hot Lunch hail from San Francisco’s Bay Area. They channel proto-metal bands such as Blue Cheer and MC5. Seconds is, believe it or not, their second album. You know what you’re going to get here - high energy, in-your-face, fuzzy rock n roll - and why the hell not, Mothercruncher? It seems, also, that they’ve set themselves on a path to obvious album titles. I look forward to their third album - Dessert. LP and CD on Tee Pee

Isaac Gracie
Isaac Gracie

Hot new British soft rock prospect Isaac Gracie's self-titled debut album comes out on the tail of a series of well received singles.  On it the young Londoner gets to grips with himself and his anxieties. Virgin EMI have very kindly given us some indies only yellow vinyl copies of this limited to 500 copies.

Jacky Giordano
Pop In Devil's Train

New from the makers of the Le Tres Jazz Club label is a new label, Le Tres Groove Club, which of course has a groove focus. Reissue number one is Jacky Giordano’s library music gem Pop In Devil’s Train, a set of vivid, sleek, wonderful funky tunes. As with the best library music, it simultaneously puts you in mind of some wild kitsch vintage TV show and makes you want to dance like hell.

Jamie Saft, Steve Swallow, Bobby Previte
You Don’t Know The Life

Avant Garde keyboard player Jamie Saft has played with a wide range of people including Iggy Pop, Bad Brains, Beastie Boys, classical composer John Adams, and pop-weirdos the B52s. You Don’t Need The Life sees him fronting a jazz trio. Backed by Steve Swallow on Bass and Bobby Previte on drums they run through a mix a new, improvised and standards that stretch genre boundaries. LP and CD on RareNoise.

Jayda G & Alexa Dash
Leave Room 2 Breathe

From the tracklisting of her debut full-length Significant Changes comes a single from Jayda G, here pressed up in white label style by Ninja Tune. Leave Room 2 Breathe features Alexa Dash as a guest vocalist, although if you prefer just the instrumental (or even just the acapella vocal!), both those options are available on B-side.

Jealous Of The Birds
Wisdom Teeth

Jealous of the Birds returns after 2016’s Parma Violets. Naomi Hamilton’s new EP Wisdom Teeth finds the Northern Irish indie songwriter pondering such topics as a life in music and the reconciliation of inner and outer selves. She does so with dextrous, poetic lyrics and excellent, folky choruses, in which her voice takes off beautifully.

Jeff Mills
The Director's Cut Chapter 1

Though the director's cut is a concept more associate with filmd, it's definitely welcome in music. Jeff Mills is someone who has the same auteur energy that we tend to associate with directors, so it makes sense that he's doing this. The Director's Cut Chapter 1 sees Mills revisiting four of his tracks, the first of which was previously unreleased. On Axis. 

John Coltrane
1963: New Directions

John Coltrane burned brilliantly brightly, if briefly; here are five of his best LPs. '1963: New Directions' brings together all of Coltrane's 1963 Impulse recordings, in the order in which they were laid down to tape. The year marked a transition point for Coltrane, he would go on to record 1964's 'Crescent' and 'A Love Supreme', of course. Available as a 5x LP box set and a 3x CD set and include artwork featuring original collages. On Impulse!

Jordan Rakei
Groove Curse

Jordan Rakei can sing in the manner of that funny neo-soul/Jeff Buckley hybrid style that incubates in music conservatoires. He can also play guitar in the manner of that funny neo-soul/Jeff Buckley hybrid style that incubates in music conservatoires. He’s been able to do this for a while now - his Groove Curse EP originally came out in 2014 - but people have only really started taking notice of him in the last couple of years. Thus have we this re-release. These songs sound like that funny neo-soul/Jeff Buckley hybrid style that incubates in music conservatoires.

Kamikaze Space Programme & Eomac
ETXC004

Eomac has had a busy 2018. As well as dropping his Reconnect LP and the accompanying Resist All Dogma EP on his own Eotrax imprint he has had a part in four collaborative records for his ETXC series. Following on from unions with Paula Temple, Sean Carpio and Demian Licht we now have the fruits of his labour alongside Kamikaze Space Programme. ETXC004’s ‘Environment 1’ revolves around a lopsided techno locked groove, while ‘Environment 2’ is full of hissing synth drones.

KLEFT
H+ Sexuali

Radical queer punk and feminist activist of the Glasgow DIY underground, KLEFT (Vickie McDonald) brings you new EP H+ Sexualis. The tracks channel Donna Haraway’s Cyborg Manifesto through viciously-eroded and considerably bassy grime, club and electro references. Recommended to patriarchs, electroheads and dentists.

Kumasi
I Know You Feel It

Kumasi were a enigmatic South African disco funk four-piece whose members also made up The Cannibals and Stimela. Due to the musicians being contracted elsewhere at the time, they weren’t allowed to reveal their identities, hence the enigma. I Know You Feel It was their only album recorded in the early '80s. Here we have 5 tracks from the album along with the South African classic track, Picnic. Double LP on Smiling C.

La Houle
Premiere Vague

Premiere Vague is the debut album from French underground newbies La Houle. After a couple years spent over here in England they've moved back to France to release a record that on the official shogaze-o-meter lies a bit closer to Slowdive than to My Bloody Valentine. Which is to say, they've got a moderate amount of effects pedals and you can actually here the singing.

La Tène
Abandonnée ​/ ​Maleja

Even when taken separately the words ‘hurdy-gurdy’, ‘harmonium’ and ‘bagpipes’ are enough to strike fear into the heart of any right-thinking music fan - so try not to hyperventilate when we tell you that Le Tene’s third LP not only features all of those instruments but is also pretty good to boot! The two lengthy drone-jigs ‘Abandonee’ and ‘Maleja’ have a Medieval menace to them. Imagine Richard Dawson sans Richard Dawson.
