Bad History Month / Dust From 1000 Years
Famous Cigarettes

Their name must be hip, because it’s ironic: Dust from a 1000 Years doesn’t sound old at all, but rather fresh. Which is really just a crazy coincidence because it’s not a Bad History Month at all, seeing as it brought us this swell split EP! Which, I might add, is limited to 308 (curious number right) copies in colors and everything!

BC Camplight
How To Die In The North

Unsettlingly serene synth pop returns under the cover of night as BC Camplight check back in to the twilit hotel. How To Die In The North is another night-time pantomime of sorrowful vocal performances, beats that sound like shoes dashing down the street, sparkling electronics and untraceable guitar riffs. Dream pop of the darkest variety. Good night, and good luck.

Broughton's Rules
Anechoic Horizon

A post-rock band with a bit of the Don Caballero in them (literally and figuratively), Broughton's Rules are ready to unleash their second record of emotive guitar signalling and climactic skyscraping. 'Anechoic Horizon' is a purely instrumental work that evokes the genre's blank and beautiful heydays. Post-rock, I want to believe.

Cornershop
Hold On It's Easy

Interesting release here. Cornershop have elected to take their debut album Hold On It Hurts, from way back in 1993, and remake it for 2015. But! You will notice that this album is titled Hold On It's Easy, which signifies that the style of these versions is a lot smoother, a lot more orchestral: a lot ‘easier’ (according to dominant assumptions about music anyway).

Ex-Cult
Cigarette Machine

I wonder if they ever were in an actual cult? Ex-Cult is what this group of hard, moshing rockers call themselves and Cigarette Machine is the LP. It’s rough, it’s Doc Martens wearing, it’s leather jacket clad bikers blowing bulbous balloons of pink gum, it’s head banging to the heavy drums, eye rolling to the woozing, scratching guitar and phlegm spitting to the drunken vocals. It’s here to stay.

Hanni El Khatib
Moonlight

Stripped-back garage rock, with a dash of hypermasculine rock and roll and a touch of the blues from San Francisco-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Hanni El Khatib. On his third album and still heavily influenced by his work with Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach. On both vinyl and CD.

J.K.
GEA

More unique constructions on this double vinyl from JK (aka Jodey Kendrick). Clattering, stiff-but-funky drums come under attack from swooping bass bombs while spectral synths hover in the distance. A singular take on dark electronic music which is suffused with groove and a freewheeling sense of adventure rather than po-faced attitude.

Jenny Wilson
Demand The Impossible!

A reality check from Jenny Wilson. Demand The Impossible! is the introspective twelve tracker from the Swedish artist. Written while Wilson was receiving cancer treatment, the album features aggy synths, swooping vocal falsettos and wails, angular drums and squidgy bass lines. It's indie-art-disco-pop from Scandinavia, pick it up on on vinyl LP and CD from Crunchy Frog.

Medicine
Home Everywhere

Medicine make songs and then sabotage them until they're buried under a dusty pile of rocks, taking after the Perfect Pussy punx with the whole mission statement of "write pop, fuck it up later". Unlike the fuzz of their peers, 'Home Everywhere' has little interest in nostalgia, making the noise the main attraction and the tune under it a secondary affair -- it's kind of like listening to Magik Markers with shiny structures underneath.

Nu-Sound II Crew / Magnus I
Spilt EP

Both a reissue and a split EP, this is one of the things we love most at Norman Records. Throw in the fact that we’re talking about oldskool experimental 90s synthesizer driven electro, and we might be tempted to keep all these beautiful vinyl 12”s, including the sweet postcard of the Nu Sounds crew djing.

Phosphorescent
Live At The Music Hall

Taking inspiration from Bob Dylan’s Hard Rain, Matthew Houck decided for the live Phosphorescent album, rather than churn out a "greatest hits live" collection that he would show the songs in a new light, demonstrating how his songs have an amorphous quality,and how they have been able to develop since their original recorded versions. The song selection spans the 10 year career of Phosphorescent and includes songs from all four albums. Live At The Music Hall is available on triple vinyl LP and double CD.

Purity Ring
Another Eternity

Purity Ring are a Canadian duo made up of Megan James and Corin Roddick. Another Eternity is the duo’s second album and follows on from the critically acclaimed 2012 debut, Shrines. Their debut also reached No.1 on the iTunes electronic chart. It was recorded whilst the pair were in separate cities of Montreal and Halifax. For Another Eternity, the James and Roddick returned to their hometown of Edmonton, Alberta where most of the self-produced and recorded album took shape.

Ricardo Donoso
Sarava Exu

Available on 180 gram 12” vinyl LP with special 3D print in various colors with download code included, as well as CD digipak. Brazilian composer Ricardo Donoso who currently lives in Boston draws on his disparate compositional projects of Scuba Death and Ehnahre to create these violently evolving dark pieces which you could neatly file alongside Demdike Stare and Raime.

Ruby The Hatchet
Valley Of The Snake

Remarkably, given the state of this album’s cover, Valley Of The Snake is actually a brand new album, not a reissue from 1972. Singer Jillian Taylor presides over a dramatic landscape of psych-metal: Ruby The Hatchet sound much as you might expect from the cover, but that need not be a bad thing.

The Gate
Stench

The Gate's fourth record, the not at all repulsively-titled 'Stench', was recorded out in New York and birthed a few good twists and turns in the time between its inception and release. The power metal band went overboard with this one, bringing in touches of psych and funk, as well as their usual love of jazz. Weird world, my friends.

Tsembla
Terror & Healing

Marja Johansson of Kemiallset Ystävät creates a record of abstracted and hard-wired beauty, bringing together a dense palate of sounds around motifs that circle inwards and then outwards, samples that get cut and fucked up, and a lot of electronic configuration. If "Animal Negatives" is anything to go by, with its tumultuous percussion and foggy effects, then Terror & Healing is the sound of rain tumbling down a pixelated mountainside.

Yannick Dauby
Penghu Experimental Sound Studio Vol. 1

French sound composer Yannick Dauby spent several months in Peng-Hu (located in the Taiwan strait) composing this record which documents the environment using sounds of underwater fauna, waves shortwave radio and sounds collected from harbours. He used analog electronic instruments to create a haunting sketchbook of his time on the island. Like previous records (one where he collected the sound of frogs) it will appeal to fans of unusual sound collages.
