- Resting In Aspic by Listening Mirror
Ah, some days it's very difficult to review records like this. You have to understand that we here at Norman are almost constantly listening to records and transmitting our thoughts on them to you the customer like our lives depend on it, and there's certain types of loveliness about which there is very little to say, particularly when it comes to ambient music. Take this delightful plastic disc, where we've largely got ethereal, calming mid and bass drones over trails of minimal piano tinkling, and sometimes some soothing buried female vocals. It's absolutely doing its job and I feel nice and relaxed. Kim just brought me a cup of tea, too. Sometimes life at Norman Towers ain't so bad. Fans of the likes of Celer and bvdub will almost certainly buy into what this duo are selling. It's a bit Eno-esque, particularly his work with Harold Budd, and it's also bringing to mind that fantastic new Scissors & Sellotape LP made out of manipulated recordings of Heidi Elva tinkling the ivories, but perhaps a little more restful and pastoral than that one, operating on a level of icy calm that's absorbing but unobtrusive...aaand relax.
