8/10 according to Ant (Norman Records staff) on Thu 01 May, 2008Stray Ghost up next with a haunting CD entitled Fabula Sjuzhet. This Oxford producer had a release on Highpoint Lowlife a bit ago.This limited edition consists of two tracks: 'Swans/Black' and 'Black/Swans'. This is very nice indeed. Spooky, eerie dark ambient with droney tones. Although this is pretty dark I find I get a warmth from it. It's not icy soulless machine drones but layers of sound that suggest melodies hovering . The second track is a lot noisier in comparison with waves of noise and feedback on top of some unnerving sub bass. You get the idea that something bad is about to happen. Then there's some lush ambient tones that are very beautifully. Pretty cool.
10/10 according to Kris (customer) on
I got this C.D along with a few others from Dead Pilot and this was by far the best one.Miserable, yet showing a subtle warmth in places....before descending into a hail of noise...still quite soothing in a strange way.Look out for bigger things coming Stray Ghost's way.
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.
