Dain Norman: Live October 25th

From the first moments of “Lantern,” the title track of his upcoming LP, Dain Norman makes his intentions clear: he's obsessed with the period of time when rock and roll was coming into its own, transforming from the amped-up boogie of the '50s to the more sophisticated melodicism of the early '60s and the British Invasion. Starting out with the “Bo Diddley beat,” which serves as a calling card of the '50s, Norman layers Beatles-esque vocals on top for a purely infectious tune.
