Inga Copeland Don't Look Back, That's Not Where You're Going
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 01 March 2013
Nothing...Not. A. Sausage. No band name, no title. Just a picture of a girl. Please put your names on your records. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Any teaching assistants out there - do you despair when the children don’t have their names on their coats? Anyway I’m going to review it not knowing who it is, then I’m completely unbiased.
The music is a strange burbling mess with fizzy synths playing a melody line as a kind of ‘hook’. The vocals are pretty good, kind of eastern sounding. The second track ups the ante somewhat, I’m reminded a little of the kraut grooves of later Portishead as it bounces along, the synths have a woozy, wobbly feel and the vocals again are ace. It reminds me of a few people...but who? I’m now on the side without a girl on the picture. This is possibly the A side. It’s got a Tricky-ish paranoid trip hop thing going on. It drifts into a neat little chorus bit with some low drone organs.
I’ve now found out who it is by. I should have known. The record is by Inga Copeland who is the one out of Hype Williams who isn’t the man, Dean Blunt. I am kind of suprised and not. It’s really assured stuff, totally dissimilar to the woozy, disjointed but brilliant recent-ish Dean Blunt album. Recommended.

We're not your normal record shop...
Please note that whilst we're always happy to see you, we are not a normal record shop where you can come and browse the stacks.
There are no stacks.
Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.

Related artist data is provided by Spotify. Why?
- They are much, much better at writing clever algorithms than us.
- They have much, much more data to set their algorithms on.
We think this is a better option than stinking up your browsing experience here on Norman Records with a crummy implementation of our own. (We only wish we were this clever: Artist Explorer.)
Spotify generate recommendations based on the listening patterns of their massive audience, so they are generally pretty good. The data does throw up some odd combinations though. So, if you do spot anything daft have a little chuckle at their robots but please don't contact us about it. There is nowt we can do.
