8/10 according to Phil (Norman Records staff) on Thu 05 Nov, 2009Machinefabriek is a very prolific chap. I've lost count of how many releases he's had out but let's just say it's quite a lot. This week sees the release of a new collaborative CD with said Rutger and Aussie sound artist Tim Catlin on Gareth Hardwick's Low Point label. Catlin made a load of sounds including guitar preparations (not sure what they are but I figure that's something to do with a guitar) which range from more conventional picking to some otherworldly crazy noises that you wouldn't think came from a guitar. These were sent to Machinefeabriek who did his special micro electronic magic and he's added some whirrs, whips, bangs and fizzles to the album. 'Glisten' an intense listen which is obviously best suited to headphones. The layers of drones and and weird electronic noises collectively make this sound well alien. It's music created by aliens for aliens so if you're all green and sticky (like all aliens are) then this is for you. A thoroughly enjoyable listen and don't forget you'll need those headphones!

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.
