Trace of Light, by Chronovalve →
8 track album Pre-orders for the CD and digital up now on our Bandcamp for the superb, long-overdue album by Chronovalve. CD includes download on release day (7th of June), as well as the first three tracks now! :)
OK, due to the insane weather up north looks like Jonathan Lees won’t be able to make it down for the show very very sadly. Apart from his much needed presence this means the CD’s will now be posted out rather than handed out at the show to everyone who pre-ordered. Many apologies about this. It’s going to be an amazing evening but with playing, organising, sound checking and...

Vinyl Cutter Breakage and laying my head to...
We’ve just been informed that our one of our printer’s cutters has been damaged, which means they have a delay on all the 180gr vinyl being cut now. This directly affects the release of Pimmon & Fabio Orsi’s ‘Procrastination’ (living up to its name!) unfortunately. Not to fret though, we are now looking at a conveniently timed mid-December arrival, whilst the...

Final news on a busy day…after getting a heck of a lot of emails complaining and basically being annoyed at missing out - we have ordered another (final!) 200 extra Federico Durand cd packs.

We have finally confirmed that in September Leonora Sophie (aka. ‘The Mrs’) will be the all new full-time staff member for the Home Normal store as this part time thing is just insane. We’ll also be running posts and updates in both English and Japanese, doing a little bit of distribution here in Japan and beyond, and we are looking into spaces for an actual physical shop space...
KOMU001 sold out....repressing imminent
Thanks to everyone who bought a copy of ‘The Shattered Light’. It has now sold out here which is really very kind and supportive of you all. Thank you! As its a month away from release I have decided to do a small 250 reissue of this although these won’t be ready until mid-late July now so no early send outs from now on I am afraid. Thanks so much once again. x Ian
