Laura J Martin Dazzle Days
Vinyl LP. Static Caravan
8/10 Ian Staff review, 14 November 2013
‘Dazzle Days’ features a list of name-dropping collaborations from Tunng’s Mike Lindsay, Benge on synth and additional production, also none other than Neil Innes on bass. It’s an album of playful Kate Bush-esque experimental pop tunes, moments of folk, avant-pop and electronica. It all features on this melting pot of an album.
Martin is a bit of a multi instrumentalist it would seem, playing a long list of instruments: the aforementioned flute, obivously, but also piano, mandolin, ukulele, harmonium, etc. Laura’s pixie-like vocals fit beautifully with the overall jolly feel to the album. I seriously defy anyone to put on this album and not feel just a little bit happier than they were before.
Laura follows up this release with a two month tour with Euros Childs as a member of his band and as a support. What a hard working girl!

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.

- 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.
