Stolen Body Records is pleased to announce the long awaited 2nd album from the parisian angry byrds, 39th& The Nortons.

The once bedroom solo project of the prolific Nick Wheeldon, leader of Os Noctàmbulos, returns with a now five piece psychedelic folk group accompanied by friends; Loik Maille of Jaromil Sabor on guitar, Fabien Gilles from Mille Colombes on drums and Martin Meilhan-Bordes & Sam Roux from the talented Bootchy Temple on bass and keys respectively. 

Carrying the songwriting torch of Gene Clark, the first album of the Byrds or Buffalo Springfield, The Dreamers is an album five years in the making, a case of third time lucky after the first two recording sessions were deemed not up to scratch.

Much has changed since 2012's 'On Trial'. Gone is the mélange of The Seeds and Dylan's thin wild mercury sound, as well as the tales of loss and anger. For the most part this is an album of light and hope, whereas the premier album hinted at a more country influenced psychedelia The Dreamers is swimming in that Cosmic American Music of the late 1960's.

"An album rich, melodic and ambitious from one of the finest voices of the french garage scene" - Back To Garage 

"An undeniable charmer that just keeps growing on you." - Shindig! 

"Let's face facts - if you're a regular reader of The Active Listener, the idea of a Dylan / Parsons / Seeds collaboration is gonna be right up your street and that being the case you need to listen to this immediately as it kicks serious amounts of ass." - The Active Listener 

"On Trial stands out as one of the best psych/garage albums of recent times. On Trial is like discovering a long-lost crate of 45s hidden in the loft of a closed-down record store" - Sound Of Confusion
