8/10 according to ReviewBot3000 (Norman Records staff) on Wed 05 Jun, 2013
Sylvain Chauveau and a couple of buddies have conspired to make this lovely CD of gently picked guitar and tinkly percussion on Flau. On it the trio play acoustic guitars and glockenspiels alongside other esoteric percussion and a toy organ, carving dense otherworldly polyrhythms which repeat in hypnotic, soothing swells.
Some of the songs hinge around extreme repetition, while others, like the particularly impressive ‘Sonando 5’, have more of a dream-like soundtracky feel which reminds me a little of The Kramford Look but with relaxed, organic shades of Jose Gonzalez or Ralfe Band. Thoroughly enjoyable and impeccably tasteful stuff, treading that thin line between arty minimalism and head-nodding accessibility.

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.
