6/10 according to Li'l Biz (Norman Records) on Fri 11 Sep, 2009Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros are a new name to me but I get the impression they are making waves with their radio friendly pop single (and first track on debut album 'Up From Below') '40 Day Dream'. It's a throw back to bands like Supertramp and 10cc, the press release seems to support this claim as they brag about psychedelic folk rock undertones and recording on a 30 year old mixing desk.....Big deal. Reminds me of the likes of Fiery Furnaces and The Zutons. B-side 'Geez Louise' sounds like an old style Mountain Goats tune with elements of paganist folk guitar pickering added for go measure. It's folky and poppy at the same time.....Genius.

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.
