Recommended by us on 8th March 2007. 2 people love me. Be the 3rd...
9/10 according to Phil (Norman Records) on Thu 08 Mar, 2007
Here's a superb 7" in on a new Leeds label called Cuckundoo. Those who know the Mighty Boosh will be warmed immediately by this reference. The 7" is by VESSELS and it's an excellent slab of post rock/ experimental indie taking in elements of Sigur Ros, Radiohead, Efterklang, Mogwai etc. It's a great little 7". Oh yes... It stars off with Thom Yorke esque vocals and misery piano.... slowly the track builds up some some electronics, guitars etc into one of those post rock crescendos we've all come to know very well and then it all goes all quiet again. It's an excellent tune though ands I really can't recommend it enough. The flipside is a more rocking affair which reminds me of the Broken Social Scene (once more the press release is spot on). Excellent!

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.
