Our album of the week (30th April 2010) 18 people love me. Be the 19th...
10/10 according to Brian (Norman Records staff) on Thu 29 Apr, 2010
What does go on with certain bands is that they're truly gifted enough to shift peoples perceptions of what they're about without compromising their overall sound that much. Woods are total flag bearers for a generation of young experimental yank-rock tykes with a pure DIY ethic similar to Mike Sniper of Blank Dogs. 'At Echo Lake' is just fucking ace from start to finish - more hazy new wave Byrds/hypnotic slacker & spectral psych folk-pop than the occasional smacked-out Beach Boys/country surf route they took on their last smasheroonie. Those gently cracked androgynous vocals are spaced like Bradford Cox mixing it with Jason Lytle from Grandaddy. Beautiful. Each song glides along at a right easygoing, otherworldly pace and to be honest they just make me think of simpler, better times whilst keeping me totally optimistic about the future of US indie music. Get this.

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.
