8/10 according to Phil (Norman Records) on Thu 18 Jun, 2009Here's a fine CD by The Hollows which is one of 2 releases in this week on the Slow Loris label which has been a bit quiet of late. Broken Notes For Winter Homes is a 6 track album of slowcore deliciousness. I think the same chap is also At Last An Atlas (see Business Lady's review this week for that Peach). This is some well gentle lovely music which again is very much in the vein of Thee More Shallows and that sort of sound. If Codeine made Americana then I think they'd sound a bit like this. It's really well done... some top songwriting and the production of it is clean and bold (whatever that means). It's all very delicate and fragile. well lovely!

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.
