8/10 according to Li'l Biz (Norman Records) on Thu 22 Jul, 2010
This Radio People LP is the work of Sam Goldberg, a Cleveland based experimental ambient artist who utilizes guitars and powerful synths to create vast and unending waves of beautiful sound. I'd pretty much rate this next to Emeralds in terms of what Goldberg is capable of extracting from his instruments. Is that recommendation enough? I should hope so. Wanna know more? Oh, OK. It's not quite as tranquil and understated as the newer Emeralds stuff but it does put you into that meditative state of mind I'd associate with them and the likes of Ducktails, Sun Araw or Dolphins Into the Future. I guess the best way to describe it would be New Age music that isn't shit and retains an understanding of the early electronic pioneers like Klaus Schulze or anyone else who could afford a massive, big as your house synthesizer back in the day. The synths on this record are wild crazy and there's enough going on here to keep you going for weeks. Amazing experimentation indeed. Oh, and one of the tunes has a cool drum beat that reminds me of 'Alphabet Street' by Prince. Get in!

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.
