Norman - 1

Norman is a band defined by its surroundings: the green, lush, and often soggy landscapes of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. An aesthetic layered with fields and farms, trees and hills, the valley is sandwiched between two mountain ranges and extends North to Portland, Oregon. Norman’s sophomore full-length, Hay, Hay, Make a Wish and Turn Away conjures images of a flatbed pickup rambling down a dusty country road on a warm Summer evening. Find a field, throw down a blanket, and play this record with the doors open and windows down, while you lay on your back watching the stars, wishing on the ones that fall. While it may be stating the obvious, Norman most clearly embodies Harvest-era Neil Young, while drawing a wide range of comparisons including My Morning Jacket, Uncle Tupelo, Ryan Adams, and even fellow Portlanders, Blitzen Trapper. Hay, Hay, Make a Wish and Turn Away will be released by Timber Carnival Records (Portland, Oregon) on May 18th, 2010, distributed by IODA and Burnside Distribution.
