Mazes Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Well this is nice. It’s two totally exclusive unavailable elsewhere tracks from pretty darn nice indie-poppers Ultimate Painting. We already know them from such albums as last years ‘Dusk’ where we found that their charming understated indie rarely fails to satisfy. Lovely stuff.
It's been a year since 2013's triumphant 'Ores & Minerals' and London based trio Mazes hone in on the best of their craft with 'Wooden Aquarium'; here, the hypnotic motorik rhythms and infectious pop melodies remain firmly intact. Though defying tradition and recording the album completely live in a studio, Mazes have not compromised their lo-fi sensibility as evidenced on their previous two efforts. With the help of Parquet Courts' producer Jonathan Schenke, 'Wooden Aquarium' is probably their most accomplished record to date.
