- Quick! Get your Death and Vanilla coloured vinyl.
- Also pre-order two new Polytechnic Youth titles. Always go fast.
We're all immensely saddened to hear news of the passing of Mark Hollis. Talk Talk’s last two albums ‘Spirit of Eden’ and ‘Laughing Stock’, as well as his 1998 self-titled solo album, have long been favourites here at Norman Records. They are truly transcendental records that everybody should hear in their lifetime.
All other music this week pales into insignificance but here we go.
- London scuzzers Snapped Ankles tell us about the property industry.
- Dapper the Go Betweens legend Robert Forster.
- Shadowy noise-pop lot Fews.
- Weezer. Oh good.
- Royal Trux are certainly fans of the white stuff.
- Chicago Odense Ensemble. Deffo in this week. We promise (sorta).
- Aussies Pond with Tame Impala dude on desk duties.
- 4AD legends Rema Rema get unreleased bits scraped up.
- Remortgage your house, then buy the new Thesis release.
- Mammoth Weed Wizard Bastard. Pretty much does what it says on the tin.
- Coldharbourstores. The question: is it Swan Vesta or Vesta curry they are referring to?
- New Zealand pop people The Stroppies.
- Woah, you Secret Machines fans are really rabid. Deffo here this week. Honest.
- Much delayed Annie 12” due (apparently).
- Talking Heads escapees Tom Tom Club.
- Another re-issue from Japanese composing ace Yasuaki Shimizu.
- Lost scuzzy techno demos from Radius.
- Sophie Hutchings gorgeous chamber compositions get a first vinyl outing.
- Everything New In?
- All the latest pre-orders?
- All our (many, many) re-stocks?
- Maybe our revamped News & Reviews section (now featuring all staff reviews as they come in)?
We’ll be back on Thursday with a super-sized update with all the week’s goodies.
