No sooner back on german soil, the NP crew are already readying themselves for an overseas adventure, this time to the U S of A for the amazing and chaotic and truly unmissable SXSW festival in sunny Austin Texas, strutting their stuff at MALAIA on Friday 18 March. Yeeha, we reckon.

Woohoo!!! Norman Palm's devastatingly charming new album SHORE TO SHORE is now on sale Europe-wide, and available via all reputable dealers, and no doubt many disreputable ones as well.

And to help pass the time we offer you this beautiful video, created by Mareike Graf for 'WDYD', a stunning track from the new album. Watch it - this hypnotic amoebic love dance can't fail to melt your stony, jaded heart.


Continuing Swim's water-music themed imagery, the new video for Caribou's 'Jamelia' is a misty-grey collage of seashore images.

In true Caribou style, it is as understated as it is complexly beautiful; at points it is uncertain if we are observing the rhythmical movements of Dan Snaith's moist muses from above or below the surface. The highlight of this tripped-out clip is the soaring of an eagle at the song's climax, set perfectly to the music - another beautiful addition to the breathtaking Swim collection...
