8/10 according to Ian (Norman Records staff) on Thu 14 Nov, 2013
‘Dazzle Days’ features a list of name-dropping collaborations from Tunng’s Mike Lindsay, Benge on synth and additional production, also none other than Neil Innes on bass. It’s an album of playful Kate Bush-esque experimental pop tunes, moments of folk, avant-pop and electronica. It all features on this melting pot of an album.
Martin is a bit of a multi instrumentalist it would seem, playing a long list of instruments: the aforementioned flute, obivously, but also piano, mandolin, ukulele, harmonium, etc. Laura’s pixie-like vocals fit beautifully with the overall jolly feel to the album. I seriously defy anyone to put on this album and not feel just a little bit happier than they were before.
Laura follows up this release with a two month tour with Euros Childs as a member of his band and as a support. What a hard working girl!

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.
