8/10 according to Li'l Biz (Norman Records staff) on Wed 08 Apr, 2009Broccoli is probably my favorite vegetable. Discounting the simple yet versatile potato, broccoli is definitely the vegetable that brings me the most joy. The broccoli that has been photographed on the cover of Benjamin Finger's new long player, 'Woods of Broccoli' looks particularly appealing right now..... It must be nearing the luncheon hour. Benjamin Finger a.k.a. Frank Benjamin Finger hails from Oslo and with the help of a few random pals has recorded a beautiful record of blissed out ambient folk and electronica designed to take the listener on an escapist journey. 'Little Sparkling Mist' starts the record off proper with inspired mum-esque vocals and romantic, swaying piano ditties. Electronic sounds and loops begin to make an appearance later in the record yet they merely serve as a canvas for the strange and melodic sounds created by the piano, guitar and vocals which tend to take centre stage. Comparative to Four Tet or Mice Parade for it's mish mash of electronic and organic elements, Benjamin has done a beautiful job of creating a record for you to simply drift off to.

A quick word about reviews
The following things sometimes happen:
- one of us will like or dislike a record much more than others here do
- artists get their friends to submit suspiciously favourable reviews
- artists get their marketing team to submit even more favourable reviews
- people review stuff when they're high.
If you read a review that you think is bonkers then please do submit a better one. We like to see a bit of debate about the music we stock. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
Norman Records 'mini-reviews'
We would dearly love to have the time to give every record the time it merits, but sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
So if you see one of our 'mini reviews', don't be offended. Don't think we can't be bothered. We're a small team and this is really just our way of saying, "Here's something worth your attention...sorry we haven't had chance to do it justice".
And, of course, feel free to submit a better review. You might even win our Weekly Review Competition, and with it a £10 store voucher.
