Norman Records here, bringing you the first of this week’s music and shop news with our Tuesday Update.
Khruangbin are returning with their third album of globe-trotting psychedelia, with vocals on the majority of tracks this time around! Their instrumental take on psych with pepperings of funk, exotica, soul and jazz have impressed so far, and we reckon they’ll take it into memorable pop territories on this one with the added singing. It’s available to pre-order with us now on the limited-edition, indies only pink variant.
Lots of bargains are to be found in our 10% off reductions promo. You’ll find a snazzy colour version of a Sleaford Mods’ classic, a Zero Kama box set, plenty of banging dance singles and top-tier reissues.
We noticed that Japanese reissues have been super popular over the past year or two, so we wrote an entire feature on the matter! There’s all sorts of exciting music from various genres in there, not just the popular city pop releases.
Record Store of the Day are running their £50 vinyl voucher competition again, so head to the Update for links to the social posts with all the details on.
New music this week comes from trip hoppy electronica fella Dalham, introspective indie rocker Car Seat Headrest, Ride’s classical/ambient treated remix of their full album ‘This Is Not A Safe Place’, a gorgeous looking hardbook photography and CD from epic45, Ghostpoet’s latest of dreamlike dystopian, a limited EP from classical informed jazzers Portico Quartet, Green-House’s tribute to Garson’s ‘Plantasia’, plus much more on the Update.
It’s quality over quantity on this week’s reissue picks, with some jazzy and cosmic Afrobeat from Oneness of Juju, a sought-after EP of ambient from GAS, a repress of the recent Beatrice Dillon record, plus lots of limited colour reissues on Castle Face.
